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

Ashley’s book review: 3.5 stars
The Duality Principle: A principle that says if a theorem is true, it remains true if each object and operation is replaced by its dual.
Gabrielle Evans ‘whole life she’s struggled with the idea of whom she was and who she should be. “She certainly felt like two fractured parts, two pieces of the same whole scattered in opposite directions.” Gabriella has this inner “slut” that is begging to come out. She wants to find a guy that can “take the reins” and push her into submission. “She wanted a man who would let her lose control—no, who would make her lose control.”
Connor Starks walks around in life as this cocky, self-confident guy who has a history with going through girls like there’s no tomorrow. He has a fixation on doing the deed in public. “He didn’t just like doing it in public—it wasn’t just the thrill of getting caught. He got off on being totally filthy with a girl, in watching her completely give in to lust regardless of where they were.” But that part of him was his past. He needs to change his ways, otherwise he worries he might end up just like his dad. He needs to be a different version of the Connor that everyone in town knows as the “bad boy”.
Is Connor exactly who Gabby is looking for to “take control”?
