Blurb contains spoilers if you haven’t read Elements of Chemistry: ATTRACTION
Four days left.
Private beach (…and boat).
Not so invisible girl.
And maybe less of a jerk-faced bully than originally thought.
What’s the worst (or the best) that could happen?
Kaitlyn is finding life outside of the science cabinet of obscurity to be quite illuminating …and so are her pants.
When things heat up between Kaitlyn Parker and Martin—previously known as the jerk-faced bully—Sandeke, she places her trust in the one person she never thought capable of earning it, let alone keeping it safe. Fortunately or unfortunately for Kaitlyn, where she gives her trust she can’t help but also give her heart.
But how will the world beyond the sanctuary of their newfound connection react to their relationship? Soon senators, chinless billionaires, and elements beyond Martin and Kaitlyn’s control want to weigh in on the young couple’s future.
Navigating the chaotic inferno of new love might be more than Kaitlyn bargained for, and much, much more than her trust—or her heart—can handle.
♥ My review ♥
Heat starts off right where Attraction left us hanging. I collectively breathed a sigh of relief at the fact that Kaitlyn and Martin are still on and off for some hot R&R and explore their attraction to each other. And oh boy, did they explore.
Heat is an apt title for this book because this is the hottest book Penny Reid has ever done. Talk about explosive chemistry. Martin and Kaitlyn spent that one week exploring each other physically and emotionally but there’s always that question of what happens when the week is finally over? And just when I thought they might finish the week on a high note, family secrets and personal convictions got in the way with that and readers are left with a massive cliffhanger.
I can’t wait to read the next book. Despite this being tagged as a serial novella, the length is quite hefty for a serial. I didn’t feel cheated because this book not only answered the questions we had from book 1 but it also sets up nicely the future events of the third book. Plus, this author just completely captivates me with her stories. No question about it, Penny Reid writes the type of stories I want to read over and over again.
I’d highly recommend this series, and if you start Attraction now and then Heat, you’ll be able to finish them just in time for Capture.
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.
