Caspian Vance~former child prodigy, now an accomplished professor of human sexuality at twenty-six has it all—an IQ that's off the charts, a stellar career at which he excels, and the drop-dead looks and body that make women spontaneously combust with lust.

He's been studying sex and women's behavior since he was sixteen. When it comes to the science of human lust and the rewards of sexual pursuits, he has all the answers.

There's one thing he knows for sure: "love" has nothing to do with it. 

Sex is a basic, primal human need—love is an unstable, emotional complication. Both are present in a person, but completely unrelated. His own world of logic and fact accepts this truth and now. . .

He's going to prove it.

When Cass takes a sabbatical to research his theory in order to write his third book, he enlists the help of a former lover and now owner of the world's most exotic and secretive male brothel catering strictly to wealthy older women. On this remote Caribbean island, he uses his keen sense of observation and research to prove "love" is merely a series of chemical reactions in the human brain—nothing more.

Nicola Barrington~ had the perfect life, married to her soul mate.Ten years into her one and only relationship, her idyllic world is shattered by the death of her beloved husband. The loss of her "one true love" sends her into seclusion where she spends the next eleven years pining for the man she still loves.

The beautiful heiress, stays hidden away, her only connection to the outside world being being the hired help and her two close friends. Her friends know Nic has much to live for and are eager to see her find love again. . . and if not love, they would settle for her rediscovering the throes of lust.

As her 40th birthday approaches, her two friends succeed in coaxing her out of her emotionally safe haven to celebrate with a trip to an exclusive resort known for "restoring an older woman's brilliant, inner glow."

Caspian’s superiority and logic combined with Nic's innocence and melancholy are on an imminent collision course. Sometimes even a genius has a hard time figuring out a woman.

Cass & Nic……wow!!! What a fantastic story!! What an amazingly HOT story! Good gosh I think my Kindle actually did catch fire!!!

How Cory came up with this amazing story is just…..well amazing! Finding love in a male brothel? I mean as a woman it really does sounds wonderful and I can’t help but to admit that I wondered for a minute if it was possible for me to open one up. The gathering of millions of dollars kinda put a small hitch in that plan. Oh well :(

Cass is brilliant. Like seriously brilliant….graduated from high school at 12 and from college at 16 kind of brilliant. His focus is human sexuality, specifically that sex and love have nothing to do with each other. That all you need for a sexual relationship is lust. He has spent all of his adult life teaching this and writing books about this. He is in the process of writing another book and doing his research at a male brothel that caters to over 40 women looking for lust. He’s proving his years of studying human sexuality until he meets Nicola…..

Nic has been mourning her husbands death for 11 years. She rarely leaves her house. She’s addicted to her electronics, computer, xbox, phone, etc. At  Acquiesce you can have no electronic devices. Nic has been brought here with no knowledge of what she’s getting into. Her friends have basically kidnapped her… lying to her……and now she’s stuck for 21 days.

Cass isn’t one of the brothel “men” but he highly educated in sex. His feelings for her are all over the place. He doesn’t want to turn her “education” over to one of the other males so Nic becomes his….pet-project, for lack of a better term. She has almost no knowledge of sex and Cass is determined to open her up to the joys of sex and lust WITHOUT the love aspect. 

Will Cass be able to keep his own feelings in check? His possessiveness becomes a problem and his feelings confuse him. Cass and Nic never actually have sex in the Biblical sense. This is one of his findings….that without actually having sex there can be no feelings. Will Nic prove him wrong?  Can a person with no emotions and a person with too many emotions find middle ground?

I absolutely loved this book. It’s different and fun and really really HOT! The characters are fantastic and there’s not many of them which adds to the romance a bit.  I also enjoyed the 40 year old inexperience matched with the 26 year old emotionless expert. It’s a refreshing story about middle age and that even smart people get things wrong sometimes. I also loved how the end wasn’t an over the top suddenly happy happy we’re together and in love type. Cory put a bit of twist to the end of the story that made it so much more relatable. It’s so amazing!!!! Go 1click right now!!

Highly Recommend!!!
