~ Synopsis ~
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.
~ Review by Courtney ~
Gabriella “Gabby” Evans is spending the summer in her deceased grandmother’s home in Maine. Returning to a home that holds so many memories, Gabby finds herself wanting to break away from what is expected of her and to follow her own wants and desires. Connor Starks is Portland’s resident bad boy. Usually the guy to expect nothing from a woman but one night, Connor finds himself drawn to Gabby and unexpectedly wanting more from her then just one night.
I really enjoyed The Duality Principle. Gabby is a nerdy girl with a very kinky side, but she can never find the kind of guy to fulfill those fantasies. Gabby is one of the better Heroines I have read in a while. I loved the premise of the story and the dialogue and dynamic between both Gabby and Connor. It was a quick, fun read. I actually wish it would have been longer. There was a lot to the plot and the characters that could have added some more depth and length to the story. I definitely wanted more of the characters, the setting and the storyline and would love to see another story come from them. I gave The Duality Principle 4.5 Books.
