Title: Saturn in Retrograde

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Joshua Bannon has harbored a secret crush on renowned physicist Patrick Riley ever since high school. Now fresh out of college, Joshua has landed a job at the Eloi Institute, assisting Patrick in his work producing time fluctuations in the massive particle accelerator they’ve affectionately dubbed “Saturn.”

As they work, a strong bond develops between the two men—a bond that takes on romantic overtones even though Patrick is concerned by their twenty-five-year age difference. The project and their relationship make slow progress until a startling discovery about Patrick convinces Joshua to take a leap of faith to prove the technology—and their relationship—can work.

My View

I have a huge smile on my face right now. Why? Because I loved this book. It hooked me from the beginning and didn’t let me go. It broke my heart; it made me think. Once again Fessenden has given us an enjoyable read that we are not necessarily expecting.

Joshua and Patrick have a somewhat tenuous age gap romance. Neither of them is completely sure it is the right thing, but damned if they can keep their hands to themselves. There is a chemistry there that is undeniable. It makes for some heat and sweetness and a desire for a Happily Ever After. If you are a fan of hot nerds, there are two of them for you here.
