My Review of Blinded Me With Science by Tara September

My Review:


I’m not usually much of a Romance reader, but I am a sucker for this kind of book where the brainy girl and the popular and slightly bad boyesque guy get thrown together and discover they actually aren’t so different. In Blinded Me With Science, Emerson, who is super smart and trying to earn her Science degree, has made a list of some more out-of-character for her life experiences she’d like to accomplish this year so she can feel like she’s had the real college experience. One of the items on her list happens to be losing her v-card. Enter Steel, the bad boy from her past who ends up being assigned as her lab partner for the year. But Steel isn’t the same guy she remembers from high school, and he wastes no time trying to prove that to her when he accidentally discovers Emerson’s list and vows to help her safely check a few things off it.

I enjoyed these characters so much. Tara September did a great job of giving them their own unique voice, and I love that there was a natural progression of trust instead of the two just falling instantly head over heels in love with each other. I’m so glad that Steel could be vulnerable around Emerson, especially after what he finds out in the middle of the book about his father. That was a key moment that made me really root for these two to get together. Emerson got it. She may not have known exactly how to fix it, but being there for Steel and letting him process the information and not feel judged or pressured surely helped him come to terms with it. I also loved how caring and protective Steel was over Emerson, keeping her safe without being a barrier in the way of her new experiences. Very refreshing to see!

All in all, a wonderful story that flowed effortlessly and left me wanting more! No, seriously, I got to the end and couldn’t believe it was already over. I’ll be checking out more from this author!

Please don’t just take my word for it. We all have different likes, interests, and opinions. Check out the book at the link below and read the blurb to form your own opinions.

Opposites attract like a magnet to steel, or in this case, Emerson to Steel

Emerson Powers has been so focused on obtaining her science degree that she’s neglected the more social aspects of college life. With the new start of her junior year, she’s determined to fix that with a real hands-on lesson in biology. The assignment is simple enough—teach the rock star’s son how to be good, while he shows her how to be very bad. Two objectives, one outcome … will the lesson be love or heartbreak?

Steel is no longer the bad boy Emerson knew from prep school, and he’s set to prove it by helping Emerson complete her secret list of desired college experiences. And if he can convince her that they are meant to be together along the way, even better!

While teaming up on experiments, both in and out of the classroom, Emerson discovers a new side to Steel. Leaving her to question everything she thought she knew. Still, is it enough to forgive the past or just mere chemistry?
