    Disappointing :(

    I was so disapponted in this book. Which made me sad because I loved the first one with Ivan and Camilla. And I loved seeing them again in this book! I wish it was more of them and a bit less of the main charachters. That's awful isn't it?
    Lindsey and Ben were likeable but not as interesting and funny and quirky as I wanted them to be. Lindsey acts out her fantasy to be her favorite comic book charachter at the convention in a way that had me scratching my head and thinking, would ANYONE in real life act in this way? Really.......anyone?? And poor Ben seems desperate to please her. Even if that means changing who he is.
    My two stars are for Ivan! (He rocks my socks!)

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Lindsay has been wanting to know more about BDSM and wants her boyfriend Ben to try things out with her. Ben blows up when she brings it up. So the next thing you know, Ben is gone and left Lindsay to herself. They meet again on the way to a Con Convention. So two women and four men travel in a RV. To say this is a little nerdy is putting it mildly. Lindsay knows that her friends are into the BDSM and she is drawn to it and to them. Ben has always been jealous of any man giving Lindsay any attention and that is one of the excuses that he used with her.

    When I read this book I thought that going to a convention sounded really fun and something I would love to see. I’m not a nerd and don’t know some of the words they used, so I was a little out of my depth in that part of the story. I enjoyed how the author led us into the start of the BDSM with Lindsay and Ben. Lindsay really couldn’t make up her mind what she wanted and that was something I didn’t like. Why would you want to do something like this and not go through it all the way? She confused me and I know that she confused Ben. I enjoyed the pink store that Ben had to go into. It made me laugh and to think some little old lady knew more about things then I even want to think about her knowing.

    The author showed the characters flaws and showed me that everyone is always scared when they go into the unknown. Even when they put up the act of being in charge. I loved seeing characters like that. Just to know that in a relationship of any kind you have to take it slow and a little at a time and do some experimenting. So I am left with wanting to find out more. It also showed me that just what a person looks like on the outside doesn’t mean that, that is the person you will get. Everyone puts on an act. I would have like to have seen the costumes for myself even though the author did a wonderful job describing them.

    I recommend this book to anyone who wants something a little different. It has hot sex and anal play so I have warned you.

    The chemistry is there, but not as strong as I would hope for in a Dom/sub relationship. ~ Under the Covers

    In the second book of the Science of Temptation series, THE SEDUCTION HYPOTHESIS, Dryden pairs together wildlife biologist Lindsey and Ben. Lindsey enjoys reading a comic that is more graphic and deals with BDSM. She gets turned on by it and when she decides to attend a fan convention and dress up as one of the characters, Ben begins to see her in a different light. As a couple, they had it good, but it could have been better and that is explored more fully in this book.

    While I liked both characters, I don’t think I really connected with them. There wasn’t anything that really resonated with me and I wonder if that’s just the characters or the writing. I liked it, but it’s not necessarily my favorite BDSM read. The chemistry is there, but not as strong as I would hope for in a Dom/sub relationship.

    I enjoyed seeing Ivan and Camilla again in this book and seeing updates on how they are doing. If you like the idea of nerds and BDSM together, then this could be something for you. Unfortunately for me, I think the idea of it seems more compelling than what I’ve seen so far in the series.

    Cute follow up to one of my favorites

    The first book in this series The Theory of Attraction, is one of my favorite books. While this is a cute follow up, it didn't draw me in as much as Ivan and Cami's story. While it's sweet to see Ben and Lindsey discover what they want in BDSM together, I found it broke whatever tension was building when they would stop in the middle and just giggle at each other.

    Still, it's worth a read as both are likeable and charming characters. It's also nice to see Ivan and Cami again.

    This story is funny, quirky, sexy and an outright blast.

    In The Seduction Hypothesis Lindsey and Ben are headed to BeastCon with their friends and it is a bit awkward as they are no longer a couple.  Lindsey still lusts after Ben but if he wants her back he is going to have to work for it.  He wants her but before he can figure out how to get her back he has to figure out why they broke up in the first place.  With the help of some old friends (Cami & Ivan from The Theory of Attraction) and new, some role playing, and some honest communication Ben gets Lindsey to give him a chance at the convention but is this a hook up or a new beginning?
    Nobody writes Geek Love like Delphine Dryden.  A little kink, some romance and a whole lot of geeky goodness I loved this book!  This story is funny, quirky, sexy and an outright blast.
