Jake meets Roan in Los Angeles, where both are there for work.  They realize they both live in New York, close enough to maintain a relationship if Jake will finally accept that he is bisexual.

The Scientist and the Supermodel is the first book in the Genetic Attraction series and was a very nice surprise to me.  The author really showed the conflict that someone might go through when they are suddenly confronted with some of the truths they keep buried.  Jake has a hard time accepting that he is bisexual after he realizes how attracted he is to Roan.

The chemistry between the two men burns the pages up.  I did want to slap Jake several times because of his behavior towards Roan and some of his lady friends. There is a ménage scene between Jake, Roan and Roan’s former fiancé that does create some issues later.  I really admired Roan because he would not settle for just any relationship, especially with the aftermath of this scene. 

There are several interesting secondary characters that I hope will get their own story in the future.  I did have to laugh about Jake’s parents when both Jake and his brother finally decided tell them about their lives.

I really enjoyed reading The Scientist and the Supermodel and will be reading it again in the future.
