Pleasure Control (Pleasure Games #1)
A dedicated scientist, Laura Manning has an I.Q. that's off the charts. But beneath her pristine white lab coat is a curvaceous body that craves satisfaction. She finds it hard keeping her mind on the experiment and off what's under the lab coat of her bad boy research partner, Jay Cutler, whom she's working with to develop a libido suppressant, an "antidote" for a societ...more

It has potential, but a few things held it back.
First, "Wildman" Jay didn’t seem all that wild to me. Oh, he supposedly knew how to pleasure the women, but other than that, I couldn’t s ...more
Picked this up on a whim at my local library, and oh boy, is this book ridiculous.

Ciencia, amor, sexo, acción... esta novela aunque cortita lo tiene todo. =)
Jay y Laura, los científicos protagonistas saben llevar adelante una relación que va madurando a lo largo que transcurre la historia, aunque la llama siempre ha estado ahí.
Con muchas escenas rescatables, entre graciosas, románticas y demás Placer bajo control no debería dejar de leerse.
