I can easily say that when I read The Alice Equation by Davina Stone on the 30th of December, 2020 that it became part of my favorite books of 2020! I was so delighted to receive an advanced reader copy for the second book in the Laws of Love series: The Polly Principle. In this blog post, you’ll read what I think of it!
What is The Polly Principle about?
Polly Fletcher loves marrying off her friends. Which is kind of weird considering she has no intention of ever walking down the aisle herself. Social worker by day, sex siren by night Polly has a clear set of principles that guide her life; her Tinder app, her Jimmy Choo shoes and a packet of condoms in her clutch.
So when she meets a sexy, silver-eyed stranger at a friend’s wedding, all she’s after is a wild night between the sheets.
Solo Jakoby has his Ducati motorbike, a backpack of his belongings, and a disaster he’s running away from in Sydney. And sure, he’s wildly attracted to the curvaceous beauty, but he has a job to do, and some unpleasant memories to forget. So what if their night together blew his mind? They’re never going to meet again.
But when Solo and Polly are flung together in quite different circumstances how are they going to handle the chemistry that just won’t seem to let up between them?
And when they start to uncover each other’s past hurts and vulnerabilities, is their crazy attraction set to turn into something deeper? Something that may just challenge Polly’s firmly upheld principle—to never, ever give away her heart.
What did I think of The Polly Principle?
At this point, I don’t think any Davina Stone book will be able to disappoint me. I enjoyed The Polly Principle, I really did. I think it was different than The Alice Equation, but it was nicely different!
In The Alice Equation, we got a glimpse of Polly Fletcher, who is Alice’s best friend. I was so intrigued by her when I read The Alice Equation, so I was really excited to get to know Polly better in this new book.
“You’re a tightly closed book masquerading as a full-page spread.”
Polly has always helped her friends meet their one true love, and she’s perfectly okay with that. She loves helping her friends but doesn’t see herself committing to anyone, ever. That is until she meets Solo Jakoby.
God, how I loved Solo. He’s such a sweet, caring man with an interesting backstory. I love how throughout the book, he is also trying to let the past go and fully live his life. Polly also has a very interesting backstory, and I think both Solo and Polly’s backstories were interestingly worked out.
Stone always manages to build such interesting side characters into her books, such as Carts and Judith. I’m really excited to read their story because book three in The Laws of Love series will be about Carts, ahhhh I’m so excited! I also loved the small appearance of Aaron and Alice, who were the main characters in The Alice Equation.
The Polly Principle is another slow burn romance book, and I’m beginning to realize that I love slow burn romances.
