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.
Kate Ramsey is all about business. She has worked so hard to gain a foothold in the competitive world of research. Even her love life has taken a back seat to her ambition. She keeps a comfortable (but secret) relationship with her boss, Rob and everything seems to be right on track. Until the arrival of Dr. Tom Baker.
“Let me recap for you,” I said. “This excellent news — as you would have it — is my new employee. Whom I am co-supervising with the director of the institute. My boss. And my lover. How can this possibly be construed as excellent?”
Tom is gorgeous, talented and far too sexy for his own good. He is a distraction that Kate can hardly afford. Now neither of them can deny their overwhelming attraction to each other and they know that one time will never be enough. But what will they do when it blossoms into something far more than just physical?
“I found myself constantly astounded at how right everything felt. He kissed me like he’d been born for it, fucked me like he knew my body inside out. He made me laugh and he made me think and I could feel myself falling for him more with each passing day. But for all his perfection, there was still no way around the fact that we were doomed to sneak around forever. Or at least until Robert Schaeffer fell off the face of the earth.”
The Science of Attraction is both wildly sexy and sweetly romantic! Verity has captured the euphoria of new love along with the uncertainty of circumstances perfectly. The chemistry between Kate and Tom was completely off the charts and that alone made for one enjoyable and satisfying reading experience. With her quick wit and sexy prose, Verity has proven herself to be an author to watch out for and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next…
