Ivan and Camilla are neighbours in an apartment complex near the university where they work. He is an astrophysicist with an intelligence of near genius proportions but with a social ineptitude that borders on Aspergers. Camilla, a computer script monkey at the same university, is his friend and neighbour.

Shelves: anthology , , on-blog , net-galley 3. One I loved and I will continue with the series this story is a part of. One was okay. One was a DNF. The stories are good.
The sex is good. And with the exception of the DNF, the relationships are good. An enjoyable read. Reviews for each individual story will also be posted 3.
Reviews for each individual story will also be posted separately on GR so as not to confuse myself when I continue those that are part of a series. This book was provided by Net Galley and Carina Press in exchange for a fair and honest review. This book was an anthology; three stories by three authors.
I read somewhere that these three authors were at the top of the Erotica genre. I figured that I should start with the best and go from there.
The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden starts the book off with a bang! We meet Camilla not sure she ever gets a last name. Camilla has a sexy neighbor who happens to be a rocket scientist. No, really! And his name is Dr. Ivan Reynolds. Camilla can set her watch by the schedule that Ivan keeps.
One day, after some of the guys had been over to hang out and have dinner, Ivan asks Camilla if she would help him out. He wants Camilla to kind of educate him on how to talk to people in a social setting. Camilla agrees but she gets her own education as well. See, she knows far less about Ivan than she thinks she does. I love Camilla and Ivan together! He is so stiff and nerdy and you have no idea that all of this naughty stuff is under the surface.
And Camilla is great. There is nothing lacking in character development and I was laughing out loud several times while reading this book. And it should go without saying that the sex was hot! But then she meets Carter, a fireman. Paige has a sister and a brother who have GOT to have their own stories. It was pretty short but it was a great little story. Paige and Carter have great chemistry.
This story was more technical in nature, I think. It was really educational!! Forbidden Fantasies by Jodie Griffin rounds out the book and I think this might have been my favorite of the three. They have a happy and normal marriage and have been married for something like 10 years. Recently, Jess secretly picked up a couple of Erotic novels. But Alex has noticed a change in her demeanor and things are about to come to a head.
Jess and Alex are the married couple that all married couples wish they were. They are happy and in love and still have a fairly active sex life. This story really seemed completely realistic. This would definitely be a good story for someone just getting into Erotica. It was pretty light and slow and got into how someone new to this lifestyle might feel hesitant or guilty or dirty.
Overall, The Theory of Attraction was a great read. I will say that it was very intense though. I usually read normal romance novels and reading this one was, at times, a little overwhelming. Its just something to consider when deciding whether or not to tackle Erotica. Having said all that, I would certainly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in taking up this genre of novel. Its steamy with shorter reads, which gives us a get a great concept of the writers style and storyline and also Fragments of The BDSM lifestyle.
For anyone who expresses interest in the BDSM genre this is ideal for you. A few meanings of the Words described in my review.
