The somewhat unusual combination of an absent-minded professor and a take-charge ex-Marine made me smile. And even though the reasons why these two work so well together are not clear, I found myself smiling at the single-minded dedication with which the Marine went after Alistair. Love’s workings are meant to be mysterious, and even the professor has to admit it in the end: love is not logical, but his feelings for Rhys are very real.

Alistair is one of the nerdiest, most intelligent, and least socially able people I have ever read about. Everything from his behaviour to his life choices and speech patterns is consistent with his genius-level and very theoretical intelligence. Outside the laboratory and his very safe environment he really is much like the 6-year old kid he was when he entered university. I guess that explains why he never grew up much beyond that social/emotional level.

Rhys is more patient than a saint! He clearly is very attracted to Alistair and feels extremely protective of him. He takes a lot of crap from his as well – it must be true love. When Alistair does come out of his shell, though, it is clearly more than worth the wait. Every professor should have a keeper like Rhys!

If you like stories about opposites that attract, if a wounded ex-Marine and a hyper-intelligent professor seem like an interesting pairing to you, and if very hot action between the sheets (or rather, on the sofa) is your thing, you may like this story.
