About this ebook

In this “fun and flirty” debut, a shy scientist is swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it real romantic chemistry or just her love potion perfume (Night Owl Reviews)?

Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute guy she meets at her brother’s concert is the international rock god Adam Copeland. By the time she learns the truth, she’s already spent an unforgettable night in his bed . . .

Now Eden, who’s more accustomed to disastrous dates set up by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn’t being honest. She can’t bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched . . .

“Sexy, engaging and original. I completely fell in love with Eden and Adam.” —Sydney Landon, New York Times–bestselling author

Lucky for me I was chosen to be part of Mary Ann Marlowe's blog tour and received an ARC. But please don't think this is why I gave it four stars. First, what compelled me to read this novel was the fact it sounded similar to the movie Love Potion No. 9 with Sandra Bullock. So, I HAD to read it! Since I have a science degree, I got a kick out of Eden being a biochemist. The story had me busting at the seams due to a test they run detecting, um, erections. Working in a lab of this type, it’s no wonder the development of a pheromone enhancement serum was created. So, when Eden meets Adam, she can’t be sure he really likes her for her. And come on folks, who doesn’t dream of hooking up with their favorite lead singer! But the story is much more than that. Eden mistakes him initially for some grungy want-a-be musician and not the famous Adam Copeland. After all, she doesn’t really listen to his music. It doesn’t take long for some steamy sex to heat up. But this story is about Adam being a real person and Eden having dreams of her own, not to mention, learning to trust in love. Mary Ann Marlowe is a funny and brilliant writer. I highly recommend this story.
