I'm really hoping there will be more in the series. This was a good follow up, but it was shorter.

4.5 Morphate Stars Review by Amy W. Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog I adore Jacquelyn Frank's writing. If you want intelligent words and steamy scenes mixed with a bit of the supernatural, then pick any one of her books. The Science of Pleasure was a short novella, but just as fulfilling as any of her full length works. Monster... Dr. Frankenstein... mad scientist... Jenesis is a highly intelligent scientist whose research was used to turn unsuspecting humans into something more. Something dangerous and invincible. The morphates. Now years later she is hired by Kincaid and his fellow morphates, whom she indirectly created, to help them control their baser needs. Never a disappointment when reading a novel, or novella written by Frank. Thought provoking words flow quickly, you will feel as if no time has passed while reading. And those sexy times, wow... you will be left hot and bothered.

intriguing, imaginative, intoxicating THE SCIENCE OF PLEASURE is the second instalment in Jacquelyn Frank’s multi-genre adult, sci-fi/paranormal/urban fantasy/ post apocalyptic Morphate romance series focusing on a scientific experiment known as the Phoenix Project that resulted in a hybrid human known as the Morphate. This is scientist Dr. Jenesis DeBruehl, and alpha Kincaid ‘Kin’ Gregory’s story line. THE SCIENCE OF PLEASURE can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading book one The Phoenix Project for backstory and history. Kincaid Gregory is Nick Gregory’s brother (The Phoenix Project). NOTE: The Science of Pleasure was originally released in the 2013 anthology The Pleasure Project. Told form dual third person perspectives (Jenesis and Kincaid) THE SCIENCE OF PLEASURE fast forwards the series seven years in that the government has disbanded the scientific research that resulted in a catastrophic experiment by a man hoping to create a more powerful being. Genetic experimentation into cellular death and recovery known as the Phoenix Project was headed by Dr Jenesis DeBruehl, but unbeknownst to our heroine, the results were used by her mentor, Dr. Eric Paulson, to create a hybrid army of immortal beings. Enter Alpha leader, and former police officer Kincaid Gregory, and the man with whom Jenesis will fall in love. Jenesis DeBruehl was caught up in the disaster that destroyed so many lives. Her life ruined, and her reputation shattered, seven years later our heroine finds herself working for the very people, beings, she helped to create. Kincaid Gregory is more beast than man but meeting the woman who discovered the cellular tag that delivers specified cellular mutation commands pulls at the primal longing of a male for his mate. Hoping to take down Dr. Eric Paulson, Kincaid and Jenesis put together a plan, a plan that wasn’t as well thought out as our couple had hoped. The initial relationship between Jenesis and Kincaid is caustic and acerbic as Kincaid struggles with the knowledge that the woman with whom he would fall in love is the very woman responsible for the mutation that destroyed so many lives. The $ex scenes are aggressive, erotic and intense-Kincaid’s beast is animalistic in his taking of our story line heroine. THE SCIENCE OF PLEASURE is an intriguing, imaginative and intoxicating tale of the potential for the human race to destroy itself through scientific discovery. The premise is dramatic and intense; the characters are spirited, charismatic and animated; the romance is fated by passion and need.

A good quick read. Jenesis and Kincaid are likable leads. The insta-love was silly considering their past connection, but at least the book has the excuse of being short, so there isn’t enough time for them to build a connection. Good world building and time was spent giving on the villain, so he’s not just evil for evil’s sake. I will be continuing to read this series.

This book is a novella that takes place between books 1 and 2 in the Morphate series. I would recommend reading book 1 so you understand the things that are talked about in this book. This one is about Dr. Jenesis DeBruehl and Kincaid Gregory. Jenesis was a doctor who worked under Dr. Eric Paulson on the Phoenix Project, never knowing that he was using human test subjects and changing them in such significant ways. Kin was one of the people that was changed and is now an Alpha of one of the Dark Cities. And he has hired Jenesis to run his lab, not realizing exactly how much his life will change or how hers will change as well. I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I wish it was longer than it was! Kin has deep issues after what happened to him and his family. Some he has worked through and some he hadn't yet. But when he meets Jenesis everything changes for not only him but for her also. They are the perfect offset to each other. Everything they believe in, once they actually talk, seems to coincide with each other. And I love how even as a human she still tries to protect the big, bad Alpha! Great read! I am hoping this series will continue and it is definitely a different take on "shifters"!

4 1/2 stars. This was such a fascinating and well written story. I love the story line and where it takes us, not to mention it's quite action packed for a novella. I love Jacquelyn Frank's imagination as it takes us on an amazing journey with her words. The characters are so wonderful and well developed and really pull you into their story. I just love Kin and Jena!! The heat and steam these two generate is otherwordly! Kincaid Gregory is an alpha Morphate and leader of Dark Philadelphia. Jenesis is the scientist whose otherwise brilliant discovery years earlier was used for nefarious reasons by her former boss thus creating the Morphate race. You may think there is no way these two could ever be more than enemies, but you'd be so wrong. Love what happens between them! Can't wait for more in this series!
