The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden 99 Cents! Loved it!
The Theory of Attraction - Delphine Dryden

Camilla can set her watch by her hunky rocket-scientist neighbor who jogs past her window each day. She relishes each glimpse of his shirtless abs, and is dying to see more. But it's hard to connect with a man who doesn't seem to know she exists...

 

Ivan feels at home in the lab, not in social situations. When he finally approaches his attractive neighbor, it's not for a date—he wants tutoring in how to behave at an important fundraiser. Ivan doesn't expect the chemistry between them to be quite so explosive, and is surprised when Cami actually accepts his proposal to embark on a series of "lessons."

Cami soon discovers Ivan's schedule isn't the only thing he likes to be strict about—he needs to be charge in the bedroom as well. She's shocked at how much she comes to enjoy her submissive side, but wonders if a real relationship is in the equation...

The Seduction Hypothesis - Delphine Dryden

The Seduction Hypothesis - Delphine Dryden 

 

*3.5 STARS*

Comic Con meets BDSM club in THE SEDUCTION HYPOTHESIS which results in a hot and enjoyable read, but it was a little too short to really do the plot justice.

Ben and Lindsey broke up under not so great circumstances, and now they are stuck attending a comic convention together that was planned before the break up. Talk about awkward. Lindsey still has feelings for Ben and Ben still has feelings for Lindsey, but they don't know how to get back to each other. 

Until Lindsey is invited to be Sub Red, a character from her favorite graphic novel who is a submissive at a BDSM club. She really gets into the role and it gives Ben an idea of how to win her back. But, will he just play at the Dom role or will Ben and Lindsay be embarking on a new facet of their relationship together?

So, this was definitely an interesting concept. I was intrigued by the BDSM graphic novel (is there such a thing, I will be researching that). Also, I could see the whole scenario play out. Couple are going along fine then one person goes out on a limb to try to show that they are interested in something and then the other person shuts them down because they are uncomfortable. Neither one of them truly communicates what they are feeling and it dissolves the relationship. I've seen that happen in real life many times over.

But while, I thought that the background of the story had a lot of truth to it, it was hard for me to get into how Ben and Lindsey moved forward. Ben basically became a Dom overnight and he did that with permission from others in the lifestyle who he sought advice from. He had never done any of the things he had tried on Lindsey before, and that made me a bit uncomfortable.

I know why that happened. The story is very short, so there wasn't a lot of time for Ben to get experience, but that was my problem with the book. It needed to be fleshed out more, given more time to develop to truly meet it's full potential.

Review: Top to Bottom by Delphine Dryden
Top to Bottom - Delphine Dryden

Mistress Amie lives day-to-day without attachments. She loves her job at the gym, but the only person she has any type of bond with is her ex, Mara, whom she’s sent away for good to a new club, Escape. She used to love the crowd and scenes at her current club, but now, the club just feels drama-filled and tired. 

 

Dru is determined to make club Escape work. On her own, she seeks the advice of her onetime college partner, Amie, to help the club break even. What she didn’t expect is to have feelings for Amie, even after their initial reunion left little to be desired. 

 

Top to Bottom is a love story of two women finding their way back to one another after many years. Although the years in between college and current day were filled with significant life trials, shaping each woman into someone slightly different and a bit stronger. Top to Bottom shares the final stage of each female’s development; both taking that final step to heal and love.

 

Amie’s wild and crazy ways condemned her to homelessness when her family discovered her kissing another girl. With all of her college friends gone, Amie struggled until she found her first job. Understanding the hardship and humiliation of living on the streets, and the pain of loneliness after being cast out by her family, Amie doesn’t trust easily. Dru gives her balance and a safe place to share herself. While I found the falling (back) into love part a bit too easy, or rather than it felt like it happened under the radar, it was still believable because of the pair’s dynamic when we did see them together, opening up and therefore, growing. Dru pushes Amie with just the right amount of determination, until Amie realizes she can trust again.

 

Meanwhile, Dru has lived a pretty good life, until she lost her partner. Opening the club was their dream, and Dru is determined to make it work. However, someone is out to ruin her and/or her club, and giving up may be the easier option. At times I felt like Dru saw Amie as a case to manage - something broken to be fixed - and that’s what drove the relationship. However, it was done because she cared, and she was ready to move on with her life. Dru saw past Amie’s hard shell and wanted to expose the potential within.

 

Top to Bottom is a standalone read with ties to the previous title in the series. At the heart it’s a solid love story, with a healthy sampling of personal growth, creating an enjoyable read. There are a few BDSM scenes, with both the scenes and sex used as tools to drive the characters from the past into their future. 

 

My Rating: B- Liked It
