Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in the blog tour for Blinded me with Science, the second book in Lesson in Love series by Tara September.
Blinded Me With Science
Opposites attract like a magnet to steel, or in this case, Emerson to Steel
Emerson Powers has been so focused on obtaining her science degree that she’s neglected the more social aspects of college life. With the new start of her junior year, she’s determined to fix that with a real hands-on lesson in biology. The assignment is simple enough—teach the rock star’s son how to be good, while he shows her how to be very bad. Two objectives, one outcome … will the lesson be love or heartbreak?
Steel is no longer the bad boy Emerson knew from prep school, and he’s set to prove it by helping Emerson complete her secret list of desired college experiences. And if he can convince her that they are meant to be together along the way, even better!
While teaming up on experiments, both in and out of the classroom, Emerson discovers a new side to Steel. Leaving her to question everything she thought she knew. Still, is it enough to forgive the past or just mere chemistry?

We really can’t get enough STEM-oriented romance- I’m blaming Ali Hazelwood and her overnight success…But what if your science knowledge is kind of rusty and reading about formulae makes your eyes glaze over?…ehm…Project Hail Mary has somewhat tempered my enthusiasm for maths in fiction… Here are five reasons why you might still enjoy this one:
1 this is a very short, dual POV novella that will take just an hour or two of reading time at most.
2 If you like the campus setting and New Adult fiction in general and are missing your college days (when all you had to worry about were essay deadlines and midterms), you’ll feel right at home. All the usual elements are present and the writing is definitely targeting the college age category. I don’t want to spoil the story, but Professor Albright’s class sounded awesome based on her first lecture.
3 Science bits are kept to minimum…scratch that, there’s no science and minimum amount of studying, so don’t let the title scare you off, focus on the cover and you’ll get a much better idea of the book.
4 Everyone loves a good list and the sublime feeling of crossing the completed items off it (better than hot chocolate on a winter day, right?) and Emerson’s secret list of desired college experiences is pretty much universal for an archetypal Good Girl.
5 There’s no cheating, no miscommunication, and the bad boy isn’t just perfectly charming, he is charmingly perfect in every single way.
Who doesn’t love a good second chance story with a reformed wild one determined to do right to win his girl? The only thing I wasn’t so happy about was a bit of not like the other girls vibe, but, on the plus side, Emerson and Steel’s kisses were hot and no one could deny their chemistry and attraction.

Thank you, Yesha! I think it’s a little more than 100 pages…I’m so used to reading 500+pp chunksters that it felt disorienting to read a novella 🙂
