Verity’s Expat Series #1

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.

Attraction is such an intriguing thing it could be a sound, a smell, a look, a combination of a few different things. Verity Jacob’s The Science of Attraction has the right mix of charming, seduction, and entertainment that made this read so enjoyable.

I did find it difficult to imagine everyone in this lab as adults, it just didn’t seem possible for me to phantom that these very educated lab techs were so awkward and random.

Lead research Biologist Kate is leading a secret relationship with her boss and lab director Rob who also happens to be very douche like finds her attention swayed when she is given a new recruit. That new recruit, Tom,  just happens to be not only smart, but sexy as well. Everything about Kate’s attraction to Tom tells her no, but her body and heart is screaming yes.

While there is somewhat a love triangle, I found a way to justify it because Kate and Rob’s relationship seem more so based of the physical than anything else. Yes there is unnecessary drama that could have been avoided if people would use their communication skills but I guess that part of what makes things interesting.

The epilogue gives a sneak peek on what’s coming up next that I can’t wait to find out more.

Verity Jacobs is a reformed scientist, who left the lab when she fell in love with writing about love. She lives with her husband and baby girl in London, where she dreams by day and writes all night long. She is addicted to the heart flutters and stomach flips of the fictional romance world.
