About THE MUSIC OF TEMPTATION:
Margot Duke can’t keep her long-distance relationship alive any more than she can the cells that are supposed to be taking center stage in her PhD thesis. Both seem to be suffering an inexplicably long and drawn-out death, and she’s spent more than enough time fretting about it, without any solution in sight.
It figures that the one day she chooses to pack it all in and stop caring is the day she meets Jonathan Young.
Jonathan swings through town with his band, just long enough to knock Margot off her feet, and leave her feeling a little giddy in his wake. The encounter proves once and for all that her inter-continental love affair is over, but can she really stomach the idea of starting another one right on its heels? And with the darling of the indie rock world at that?
My sexy science team is back!! I was beyond excited to get a chance to review for Verity Jacobs again and this book lived up to all my expectations!
We have Margot Duke, a fun scientist working on cell biology in Bonn and living in a long distance relationship. Margot is my favorite character mainly because I think she has a lot of spunk, a sarcastic sense of humor and a good head on her shoulders. When Margot realizes that her LDR is over and all that is left to break it off for good, she goes to a gig to get perspective. What she gets instead is an Indie Rockstar!
Jonathan Young made me want to kick Margot to the curb and take her place! Jonathan is one sexy piece of up and coming rockstar! He has a dirty mouth that got me throughout this whole book, gah! I love dirty talking men! And to top it off he is sensible and down to Earth. He doesn’t let the fame get to him, nor is he overwhelmingly arrogant or entitled. Two things that turn me off rockstar romances.
Margot & Jonathan get off to a rocky start, Margot is all about keeping distance between them because she doesn’t want another LDR so soon after her first is over but, the best laid plans do go awry. What ensues is a lot of sexting, science, and concerts all over the place! This definitely kept the book going at a fun, fast pace and I was hooked from the very beginning!
It was so fun to be back with the characters from the Science of Attraction and see how the lab is moving along as well as focusing on Margot & Jonathan! I’m excited for the next book from Verity and can’t wait to get my hands on it. Verity is fast becoming one of my favorite authors!
THE MUSIC OF TEMPTATION Storyboard:
About THE SCIENCE OF ATTRACTION:
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.
About Verity Jacobs:
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.
