 Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Camilla can set her watch by her hunky rocket-scientist neighbor who jogs past her window each day. She relishes each glimpse of his shirtless abs, and is dying to see more. But it’s hard to connect with a man who doesn’t seem to know she exists…

Ivan feels at home in the lab, not in social situations. When he finally approaches his attractive neighbor, it’s not for a date—he wants tutoring in how to behave at an important fundraiser. Ivan doesn’t expect the chemistry between them to be quite so explosive, and is surprised when Cami actually accepts his proposal to embark on a series of “lessons”.

Cami soon discovers Ivan’s schedule isn’t the only thing he likes to be strict about—he needs to be charge in the bedroom as well. She’s shocked at how much she comes to enjoy her submissive side, but wonders if a real relationship is in the equation

      This is a fun and sweet story about an awkward but hot scientist and his lovely female neighbor. I started reading this book and immediately thought of one of my favorite shows, The Big Bang Theory.  The way Ivan describes social situations and how he interacts with people totally reminded me of Sheldon Cooper from the show and I loved it. Camilla has been living next door to Ivan for a few years and over that time she has gradually come to lust after him. When Ivan asks Camilla for her help preparing for a fundraiser at work she see this as an opportunity to finally maybe get a little closer. She gets what she wants and is shocked to learn what secrets the Professor has. Not only does Ivan have a strict schedule he sticks to for his daily routines but he also likes discipline in the bedroom.  I enjoyed watching these two gradually come together and realize what they mean to each other. This was a quick, steamy and fun read. If you are a fan of sexy, nerdy men this one is for you. I enjoyed this a lot and will be looking for other books by this author. 

The Theory of Attraction :    3.5/5
Cover:                                     2.5/5
