Summary

In her witty and breathtakingly sexy novel, Emily Foster introduces a story of lust, friendship, and other unpredictable experiments....

Data, research, scientific formulae - Annabelle Coffey is completely at ease with all of them. Men, not so much. But that's all going to change after she asks Dr. Charles Douglas, the postdoctoral fellow in her lab, to have sex with her. Charles is not only beautiful, he is also adorably awkward, British, brilliant, and nice. What are the odds he'd turn her down?

Very high, as it happens. Something to do with that whole student/teacher/ethics thing. But in a few weeks, Annie will graduate. As soon as she does, the unlikely friendship that's developing between them can turn physical - just until Annie leaves for graduate school. Yet nothing could have prepared either Annie or Charles for chemistry like this or for what happens when a simple exercise in mutual pleasure turns into something as exhilarating and infernally complicated as love.

Amateurish narration

Would you try another book from Emily Foster and/or Zoe McKay?

Emily Foster, yes. Zoe McKay, no.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Annie a lot. Too many New Adult characters (especially heroines) are praised by other characters for being mature when there's no evidence in the text for it. She came across as realistically 22, but a solidly mature 22 who makes (mostly) good choices.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Zoe McKay?

Someone who could actually produce an upper-crust British accent. Charles' voice was all over the place, sometimes veering almost Cockney.
