Book Review - Romancing Dr. Love by Rebecca Heflin & Giveaway

 
Book review

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Dr. Samantha Love is skeptic when it comes to love. She believes in chemistry and hormones, but not in romance or the existence of soul mates. She's developed a blood test to discover good matches through certain chemicals. It's all very clinical and highly efficient, just like everything else in Sam's life. She's transferred to Sterling University to work on her research and so far she likes it there. She found a best friend and she feels at home at the faculty.
 
Ethan is a literature professor. For him love is about romance and deep connections and he wants to show Sam what it's like to be treasured and appreciated. However, she doesn't really seem to like what he's offering her. He's even signed up for her research and is doing everything he can to win Sam's heart. When Sam finds out the result of his test it's scaring her. Will they be a good match or is there too much at stake for Sam to date while pursuing a glorious academic career?
 
Romancing Dr. Love is an entertaining romantic story. Sam has quite a lot to prove. Her parents are famous and she's always associated with what they do and people judge her without knowing anything about her. They moved quite a lot and therefore Sam doesn't have any friends. She's been lonely and Sterling University changes that, but it also makes her scared. She's way too serious and I kept hoping Ethan would help her come out of her shell. She has so much to offer and is incredibly smart. Sam might be insecure in some areas, but she can stand up for herself, which makes her a great match for Ethan. He's got a wonderful cheeky sense of humor and I loved his kindness and caring nature. They complement one another and I couldn't wait to find out if Sam would give Ethan a fair chance.
 
Rebecca Heflin writes about intelligent people with fascinating careers. Sterling University is a terrific setting for romantic stories and I immediately loved reading about it. The vivid descriptions of the research the main characters are doing immediately made me interested. Rebecca Heflin clearly knows what she's writing about and that's one of the reasons I enjoyed Romancing Dr. Love so much. The topic of her story is fun and original, which is something I liked a lot. Romancing Dr. Love is a fabulous story and I can't wait to read the next Sterling University book.
 
Advice
 
Romancing Dr. Love would be a great choice for readers who love romantic stories about academics.

Blurb

 She’s benched her heart. His is on the injured reserve.

Burned-out and broken-hearted statistics professor, Dr. Shelby Wentworth, returns to her hometown determined to escape the disgrace of a nasty divorce, shake off the taint of her ruined career, and start over. This time she swears she’ll live by the rule ‘don’t get your honey where you get your money.’ But an unexpected reunion with her former high school crush, not only makes her rethink her decision to return home, but also tempts her to break her one rule.

After a career-ending injury and his own disheartening divorce, former NFL quarterback, Nash Taylor, returned to his hometown to become the head coach of the Sterling University Bobcats. When his childhood best friend literally runs into him in the faculty parking lot, he thinks maybe it’s time to put his heart back in the game.

Nash, in the hunt for a division championship, enlists the number-crunching Shelby as his secret weapon. But Nash’s plan to help Shelby regain not only her confidence, but also her financial security backfires and lands Shelby in the same hot water that brought her home in the first place.

Will Shelby let the past dictate the future, or will Nash win her heart on his way to winning the championship?

  3. I like the idea of a scientific approach to finding a mate! It'd certainly cut down on heartbreak.
