One week.
Private beach.
Invisible girl.
Jerk-faced bully.
What’s the worst that could happen?

Kaitlyn Parker has no problem being the invisible girl, which is why she finds herself hiding in various cabinets and closets all over her college campus. Despite her best efforts, she can’t escape the notice of Martin Sandeke—bad boy, jerkface bully, and the universe’s hottest, wealthiest, and most unobtainable bachelor—who also happens to be Kaitlyn’s chemistry lab partner.

Kaitlyn might be the only girl who isn’t interested in exploiting his stunning rower’s build, chiseled features, and family's billionaire fortune. Kaitlyn wants Martin for his brain, specifically to tabulate findings of trace elements in surface water.

When Kaitlyn saves Martin from a nefarious plot, Martin uses the opportunity to push Kaitlyn out of her comfort zone: spring break, one week, house parties, bathing suits, and suntan lotion. Can she overcome her aversion to being noticed? Will he be able grow beyond his self-centered nature? Or, despite their obvious chemistry, will Martin be the one to drive Kaitlyn into the science cabinet of obscurity for good?

**Full novel/continuation of the short story 'Bunsen Burner Bingo' from the Breakaway anthology.**

NA Review My Thoughts

Words cannot express how excited I was when I found out this book was happening. It is a continuation/the novel length version of a short story published in a new adult anthology, called Breakaway. It was my favorite of the 14 stories in that anthology, and I wasn’t the only one that thought that. This is what I wrote about Bunsen Burner Bingo in my review of the spring break anthology, “beyond adorable. I want to see a full length book with the story of Katy and Martin. I loved that Martin was both this super smart science geek and a hot frat guy. Katy was someone who was burned in the past and hides behind her clothes and her science. This short story was laugh out loud funny and I want more!” Penny Reid got an overwhelming response, asking for more Kaitlyn and Martin, and she answered our calls! Elements of chemistry was born! It is going to be told in 3 parts, Attraction, Heat and Capture, and I think those three parts make up the book Elements of Chemistry, which I think is book 1 in the Hypothesis series. It is a new adult romantic comedy.

Attraction starts off just where bunsen burner bingo started off, so you don’t need to read the short story first to read this one. Penny Reid did a great job incorporating the short story, and expanding it to what I knew I would be an excellent novel. And she made the short story flow effortlessly into a longer story. It worked perfectly.

This is exactly the kind of new adult romance that I love. It is funny, sexy, well written with great characters, and the chemistry is sizzling. Elements of Chemistry: Attraction, is going to be a favorite of mine, so doubt about it. Kaitlin and Martin are o multidimensional, and such fantastic characters on their own that you can’t help but root for them together. I love how special Katy is to Martin, without her even knowing it. It is a great spring break read, or heck, an anytime read. The three parts are being released in fairly quick succession, so you can enjoy parts 1 and 2  back to back if you wait until the end of April.

Martin and Kaitlin are making their way up the ranks of my favorite book couples. All in one short book. If you like romances that are laugh out loud funny, and sweet and sexy at the same time, the elements of chemistry series is for you! Read this series. Just do it.

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

    I love when authors listen to their readers and give them more! I so need to read this. I bet I love it as well. I’m off to Amazon to look it up. 😉

    My thoughts on this one could go either way, but I will say I am a huge fan of the cover! I might have to check out the anthology short, and then move on to the full length!

    Romances are okay now and then. I like when they are not just hot and sexy though. Sweet and funny are better I think.
