ROMANCING DR. LOVE by Rebecca Heflin

Sterling University Book One
Product Details
Rebecca Heflin

 Dr. Samantha Love says it’s all about the chemistry. A brainy psychology professor and researcher, Sam has based her entire academic career on the theory that what we call love is simply a chemical reaction. She is currently running a study to prove that her compatibility blood test reveals perfect matches—sort of like an organ donor, but for relationships. No romance required.

Along comes sexy literature professor, Dr. Ethan Quinn, who says it’s all about the romance. He thinks the pretty psychology professor has taken love and all its mysteries and reduced it to something as romantic as a cholesterol test, and he sets out to prove her theory wrong.

When Ethan signs up for her study, Sam discovers to her horror, that according to her compatibility test, they are a perfect match. Sam faces an existential crisis over her career and her research. If she believes in her science, shouldn’t it follow that she believes Ethan is her perfect mate? And if she doesn’t believe he’s her perfect mate, doesn’t that bring into question her research? Her compatibility test? Her reputation? And her very career?

As Sam struggles with her dilemma, Ethan pursues her with all the romantic tactics in his arsenal. Will Sam’s theories succumb to his challenge? Or will Ethan lose the battle for Sam’s heart?

 This book was rather a charming and enjoyable short book.Samantha is rather a lonely person, has no friends, is extremely intelligent and doesn't believe in love.   Samantha is trying to prove that love has only to do with a chemical reaction in the body.   A few drops of blood and you will know who is right for you. While doing this study, a lit professor decides to prove her wrong.  In signing up for her study, he's her perfect match.  Now that really puts Samantha in a tizzy.  What do you do with the results?  Say her study is wrong,  just forget Ethan, the lit professor or go for it and believe.    Ethan has a point he is trying to prove.  That is love and working at it is all it takes.  The author picked two very interesting characters to prove or disprove this study.   It was interesting that two different people had two different outlooks on love.  The author did an unique thing when he reversed roles of the male and the female's perspective.  You turn each page wondering if they will come to some kind of compromise and a true romance will develop. A romance of love.  The author definitely turned the tables on what males and females normally think or react to love.   It was an interesting difference.  The author gives you all of it. The story is warm, sexy, short, has that romance that at the beginning you're not sure of and questions you want answers to throughout the book.  The ending, well I won't tell you so you can read for yourself.  A different take on love with perhaps the same ending.

I received a copy of this book Rebecca Heflin's books and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
