Early Review: The Attraction Equation by Kadie Scott

Nov 6, 2017

FBI agent Max Carter lives his life by a strict set of rules—rules that don't allow for distraction, deviation…or a relationship. But tell that to his matchmaking mama. To avoid yet another set-up, he announces he has a girlfriend. And now has to produce said girlfriend at Christmas dinner. Maybe Santa has a suitable actress in that red bag of his…

Gina Castillo is about to break her building’s iron-clad “no pets” policy to give her little brother the perfect Christmas gift—a dog. Too bad Max, the most inconveniently sexy tenant in the building, catches her red handed. Gina expects to be evicted, but instead finds herself blackmailed into playing the role of his girlfriend.

Two lies plus one dog should equal a hot mess of a holiday, but attraction and Christmas magic might just defy the rules…

4-4.5 STARS

The Attraction Equation was a super fun, sweet & sexy read! I loved this opposites attract -“fake” romance story!

Max is happiest with order and structure. He has a closet full of the same suits, his apartment is spotless, and everything has it’s place. He never deviates from it and Max likes it that way. Relationships? No...that would never work.

Until one day Gina, a woman whose life is full of color and chaos, comes into his life in an unexpected way.

Gina is subletting her best friend’s apartment which happens to be a few doors down from Max’s. When Max catches her sneaking a dog out of the “no pets allowed” building, she thinks she’s in big trouble and that her friend will lose her apartment.

But Max has other ideas. He needs his family, mainly his mother, to back off from his personal life and stop trying to fix him up with a woman. He makes a deal with Gina. She plays his fake girlfriend until the new year and attends his Christmas work party and Christmas at his family’s house and he won’t tell the building's Super about the dog (which happens to be a Christmas present for her younger brother). Win-win, right?

Oh...but the both of them never planned on real feelings getting in the way. Will Gina be able to deal with Max’s OCD tendencies and will Max be able to give up some of his structured and controlled life for something real with Gina?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Gina and Max’s journey to their HEA! The dog in the story was an adorable side character too!

This is the second book in Kadie's Love Undercover series, but can be read as a stand-alone.
