"I would give this book ALL THE STARS if I could. Five is not nearly enough. This is such a clever, fresh take on finding your soul-mate." ~ Read Me Romance Blog
"Take necessary precautions: two nerdy scientists are about to light up your ereader and leave you with a hot flash!" ~ Marika Ray, author of MomCom
"There was just something about these two that clicked and made my inner nerd squeal. And can I just applaud Kingsley on writing this story? The amount of research alone that she had to have done. Wowza." ~ Amity Book Blog
"Corban is adorable. Disheveled, distracted, caring, full of animal facts, a BOSS in bed, and secretly jacked- what more could you want?" ~ Romance Reviewed
For psychology researcher Hazel Kiegen, science holds all the answers. Her decision to swear off dating? Totally backed by her own calculations. Just don’t ask about her missing orgasms. She hasn’t been able to science her way out of that little conundrum. But her biggest problem? Corban Nash. He’s frustrating. Infuriating. And deliciously adorable, but that’s neither here nor there. He claims to have cracked the code to falling in love, and Hazel is determined to prove him wrong.
Corban Nash created the theory of accelerated intimacy after numerous successful tests on his friends and family. Every couple who used his questionnaire fell in love, until Corban found himself the last single guy in his social circle, and a groomsman in dozens of weddings.
The only problem is, it’s never worked on him. And science hasn’t explained why.
Despite being the lone aberrant data point, Corban believes in his research, and with his new job, he’ll have the resources to prove it. Verifying his theory right under the nose of his nemesis, Hazel Kiegen? Even better.
There isn’t a theory in existence that will make Hazel fall in love with Corban. Not even with his sexy half-smile and temptingly muscular body. But from the moment these two rivals meet, sparks fly. And when they put his questionnaire to the test, the results aren’t what either of them expect.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is book #2, in the Dirty Martini Running Club series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this sexy series in order.
Hazel finds out not long after taking a new position at a new location, that her nemesis is speaking there as well. Now she is second guessing her choice to change employers. Then she gets to know the man she thinks of as her enemy. Or does she?
Corban has an equal hate for Hazel. Now he has a face and body to put to the name. If only he wasn't outrageously attracted to the enemy. He wants to kiss her right? Or does he want to make her mad? He cannot decide. Is is possible to want both?
I am going to be completely honest here. I usually hate the trope of enemies to lovers. I really have not been a fan. This particular story was much anticipated, so I am not sure if that played a part. All I know is I could not put this book down, and lost sleep to enjoy it. I devoured the pages eagerly and literally ate up every word. Already a fan, I am now bumping this author up to a definite 1-click for me.
