When did the science nerds and teachers become so sexy?? That’s the question I need answered! Between hot nerds and hot teachers I’m starting to realize that I need to stay in fiction-land because they definitely aren’t that hot in the real world dammit! As I think of my balding Chemistry professor and roll my eyes. IT’S JUST NOT FAIR!!
SYNOPSIS: 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.
I enjoyed this story very much. It was good to see a change of pace with the hero/heroine; as he wasn’t a filthy rich billionaire alpha male who doesn’t believe in love and she wasn’t some destitute innocent girl who needs someone to save her. Kate has her own place, a great job she loves and doesn’t need anything but a good shagging, since her current shag partner is a bit on the old man side. Ewww…
The chemistry between Kate and Tom is off the charts hot and highly combustible and they should know better..being scientists and all. Kate just doesn’t know how to break it off with her current beau and that makes for great sexual tension and impossible to resist situations. Her lab students are adorable and provide a little comic relief as they watch the tension build between Kate and Tom. But the best comes from her sister, Emily, who manages to embarrass her any chance she can via Skype. I don’t want to give too much away..just know the smut won’t disappoint and neither will the story! So 4 stars for this quick read..
