Book Review ~ The Science of Attraction by Verity Jacobs

The Science of Attraction - Verity Jacobs


Kate Ramsey is at the top of her game.


She’s the hot new recruit at the most prestigious research institute in Germany, and she’s determined to live up to the hype — even if it means working day and night. Stress relief comes in the form of a no-nonsense affair with her neighbor, who also happens to be the director of the institute. Who says sex should be anything more than a contract between two people who have other things on their mind?


So when Tom Baker saunters into her life, Kate is understandably upset to see this well-oiled machine splutter and seize. Tom is young and smart, and far too pretty for his own good. Kate can’t help but be drawn to him, even if giving in to the attraction would mean risking everything she’s worked for.


My Thoughts~

Kate and Tom are extremely likable characters that have great chemistry – not only in the work environment, but sexually as well.  These two could not keep their hands off each other and at times I was comparing them to minks or rabbits, because they were constantly having sex – All.The.Time.  In between all the hot sex, the conversations were witty and very entertaining.


The synopsis may lead you to believe that there is a love-triangle in this story, but really, there isn't.  The relationship between Rob and Kate was one of convenience and mutual satisfaction and seriously, after you read this story, you will love what happens to Rob in the end. I was not a fan of Rob – nope, not at all.  He was a total jerk!


The Science of Attraction was really fun to read!  Who knew that science could be so fun and sexy? I loved all the characters (well, except for Rob).  They were really a fun group of people and it looks like we will get to see some of them again in Ms. Jacobs next book The Music of Temptation. (YAY!!!)


I believe this is the author’s first book and with that being said, for a debut novel the writing was perfect and flowed very smoothly.  This was a great read that you will definitely want to pick up if you enjoy romance stories with a lot of hot sex and witty humor – you will not be disappointed!
