The Theory of Attraction, Delphine Dryden (Review)
The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden
Camilla has the hots for one of the buildings resident nerds’ rocket scientist Dr. Ivan Reynolds. She doesn’t know when it began but the man is hot even if his social skills leave something to be desired. Too bad he sees her as just one of the guys.
Things change when Ivan needs Camilla’s help to learn a few social niceties before a big event that may well save his career. The heat is on when Ivan wants to do things his way. His way being where he is in control. Camilla sees a side of Ivan she has never seen before. Instead of Camilla teaching Ivan, it becomes lesson for lesson as Ivan teaches her what it means to be submissive.
Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. I enjoyed The Theory of Attraction immensely. Dryden hooked me in the first scene with Camilla panicking and Ivan stepping into the chaos to save the day. Right away you see elements of the type of man Ivan could potentially be. The story lead up to Ivan coming out as a Dom to Camilla naturally, which is one of the reasons I was pulled into this story, everything had a natural flow. I could actually see this happening to someone in the good ole USA. The BDSM elements were woven throughout the story without the need for the couple to visit a club.
I look forward to seeing other titles by Dryden and I am not just saying that because she set her book in Houston bringing back memories. This read made me nostalgic for my home state with mentions of beach trips to Galveston and descriptions of Houston’s special brand of heat. The Theory of Attraction is a must try especially for readers who enjoy nerds, who are alphas in the bedroom, instructions not required.
