Lucy London puts the word genius to shame.
Having obtained her Ph.D. in microbiology at the age of twenty, she’s amassed a wealth of knowledge, but one subject still eludes her-people.
The pendulum of passions experienced by those around her both confuses and intrigues her, so when she’s offered a grant to study emotion as a pathogen, she jumps on the opportunity.
When she attempts to come up with an actual experiment quickly drop from lackluster to nonexistent, she’s given a choice: figure out how to conduct a groundbreaking study on passion, or lose both the grant and her position at the university.
Put on leave until she can crack the perfect proposal, she finds there’s only one way she can study emotions-by experiencing them herself.
Enter Jensen Walker, Lucy’s neighbor and the one person on the planet she finds strangely and maddeningly appealing.
Jensen’s life is the stuff of campus legend, messy, emotional, complicated-in short, the perfect starting point for Lucy’s study. When her tenaciousness wears him down and he consents to help her, sparks fly.
To her surprise, Lucy finds herself battling with her own emotions, as foreign as they are intense. With the clock ticking on her deadline, Lucy must decide what’s more important: analyzing her passions…or giving in to them?
This was such a fun read!
I really enjoyed the writing, characters, and the storyline.
Lucy was an amazing character. I loved her honesty, straightforwardness, insatiable quest to understand things, and her reactions when she realized she has feelings for Jensen…and her shock when she loses control with him.
Jensen was just perfect for Lucy.
I loved that he accepted her for who she was, and didn’t try to change her into someone she wasn’t. If anything, her quirkiness and honesty turned him on.
The secondary characters, in particular, Lucy’s 4 older brothers were great. I liked their protectiveness, the pranks they played on each other, and how involved they were in Lucy’s life.
This was a wonderful read, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
