This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.
Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.
When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.
Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.
Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…
Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.
When the two most unlikely pair went on a blind date, there was instant chemistry sparkled between the two. As Gabriella and Connor begin to date, there seem to be some unnatural moments and awkwardness. Because both Gabriella and Connor were holding back due to their past experiences.
Gabriella is quite intelligent and she is on her way to earning a PhD degree, while Connor used to be town’s bad boy, but is finally turning around from his trouble and wild past. Underneath her geeky appearance, Gabriella is full of frustrated, wild sexual energy. Connor is withholding his old wild ways, he just wants to be the perfect gentlemen to Gabriella. What they don’t realized was how suitable they were for each other, if only Gabriella and Connor can get past their own fear and accept themselves for who they were.
I think this book was a very sweet and sexy book, which I enjoyed to read. While I am not a fan of New Adult books that’s typically full of dramatic dramas, I thought The Duality Principle could use at least one or two. There was some conflicts between Gabriella and Connor, however they were resolved quickly. Once Gabriella and Connor start engaging sexual activities, everything just seem…perfect.
If you are looking for something light, sexy and straightforward, I think you are going to enjoy reading The Duality Principle.
Happy Reading! XO
