Publisher's Summary

Let the experiment begin!

Subject/victim: Griffin Reed. Theory: Sensual pleasure makes people stupid. Stupid people don't get promotions. Therefore must have sex with Griffin to keep competitive edge. Procedure: Lots of satisfaction for Griffin. Contain self in order to keep brainpower optimal.

Macy Thomaston has just learned the most important scientific discovery ever: intense sexual pleasure leads to a temporary dip in IQ. Surely there's a way to leverage this against Griffin Reed, her palm-sweatingly hot coworker...and the thorn in her professional side.

Macy just needs to blow Griffin's mind, and get her promotion without a single teeny release for herself. And she's really hoping Griffin is lousy in bed....Otherwise this whole experiment could completely backfire!

Sex Quotient

I was not impressed with this story. Actually I think it was the reader that made the story less than impressive. I didn't care for the voices she gave the characters...especially the hero, most of the time the voice made him sound like a surfer dude with a bad southern accent. I also was less than thrilled with the heroine in this story, I found little to like about her. IMHO she never really fully redeemed herself, although by the end of the book she was tolerable.

Clever concept, dull execution

Orgasms cost you IQ points? Sounds like an interesting premise. Unfortunately it quickly becomes just another romance until even the sexplay becomes repetitive. The characters, the business environment and the dialogue turn implausible and unsympathetic. Another reviewer has mentioned the reader - I agree with the comments but was not as disturbed by the voice as by the story. Not funny. Take a pass.

Cute and sexy

It's a light fun read, nothing very serious. Sexual stereotypes abound although realistic. The sex scenes are steamy without being over the top. Worth a credit.
