Dr Steven J. Fisher is a young and brilliant biochemist (special subject: the female orgasm). He’s invented a Viagra-like pill for women – now he just needs his results to be perfect. Annie is an orgasmically-challenged arts student (special subject: Victorian semicolons). She’s just volunteered to be one of Fisher’s case studies – but for some reason his miracle treatment isn’t working. As scientist and subject bond over romantic meals lit by the flickering glow of a Bunsen burner, Dr Fisher is surprised to find his feelings taking a most unscientifc turn…what if love is one thing science can’t explain?

As anyone who reads my book and audio reviews regularly will know, a foray into contemporary romances/chick-lit is a very rare event for me! But when I was scouring Audible for something new to listen to, I stumbled across Love and Other Dangerous Chemicals, which had attached to it the names of not just one but TWO of what I call my phone-book narrators (i.e., people I’d listen to if they were reading the telephone directory!), and I couldn’t resist it.
In his gently humorous author’s note at the beginning, author Anthony Capella tells the listener how he came up with the idea for this story, which centres around a brilliant young biochemist and his research into Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).
