Contemporary NA Romance Early Review: Elements of Chemistry: Attraction by Penny Reid

Elements of Chemistry: Attraction by Penny Reid (Hypothesis #0.25)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
Elements of Chemistry, part 1
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?

Release date: April 8th 2015

Elements of Chemistry is perhaps Penny's geekiest romance, and I'm loving every moment of it.

She split this book into three parts, and it makes me glad that I can prolong the pleasure of reading it for a bit longer than usual.

Katy Parker is very comfortable in her college life. She reads books, eats cookies, plays guitar, participates in a band, videogames, and stays as far away as possible from jocks & cheerleaders, and their wild ways.

So what if she fantasises about her Friday lab partner? It's a pretty dream which has nothing to do with reality. Martin Sandeke is a hot, filthy rich jock, and you don't get involved with one unless you are prepared for a world of hurt.

Martin, however, has other plans for his lab partner. One scorching hot kiss from him, and Parker is suddenly agreeing to spend spring break on a tropical island with him. Of course they are not completely alone. There is Parker's roommate with her ruthless practicality and Martin's rowing team...

If I can get into Parker's head, Martin on the other hand is a complete enigma. I expected ruthlessness and extreme confidence, but his core is vulnerable and unsure, the relationship they both embark on is an unknown ground for him as much as for her. As a result, this book is funny, raw and a little bit heartbreaking.

 Be warned, there is a cliffhanger ending, but it feels natural and is needed to have a clean distinction between different stages of this young couple's relationship.

Loved it, recommended and looking forward to the next two books in this series.

 Элементы Химии - возможно одна из самых экцентричных серий Пенни Рид. И в тихомолку я рада, что она разделила одну книгу на три части, что означает, что смаковать я её смогу подольше.

Кейти Паркер ведёт комфортабельную  студенческую жизнь.  Она читает книги, валяется в кровати, кушая печенюжки, играет на гитаре, участвует в музыкальной группе, развлекается компьютерными играми и счастливо обсуждает на форумах кто уничтожил кольцо Саурона, Фродо или Сэм.

Она обходит стороной студенческие вечеринки, спортсменов и чиарлидеров. Боже упаси, ей это совершенно не нужно! Ну и что, что она часто фантазирует о своём лабораторном партнёре по химии? Ведь эта фантазия очень далека от реальности. Мартин Сандэки - популярный спортсмен, жутко богат и до невозможности самоуверен.

 Вот только у Мартина другие планы для Кейти, и вот уже непонятно как после обмена пылкими поцелуями, Паркер неожиданно для себя соглашается провести весенние каникулы в компании Мартина на тропическом острове.

Они конечно не одни. Мартин прихватывает с собой свою команду по гребле, а Кейти объявляется в компании лучшей подруги, которая не по годам практична и безаппеляционна.

Если поведение Кейти мне понять легко, то Мартин - настоящая загадка. Я ожидала, что он будет напорист, чарующ и самоуверен, однако отношения с Кейти для него такая же неизведанная земля, что и для неё, и мы получаем нерешительность, уязвимость и множество болезненных ошибок.

 Книга эта милая, смешная и в то же время немного душераздирающая. Готовьтесь к клиффхангеру, который однако органичен и необходим для разграничения фаз отношений главных героев.

Мне очень нравится, буду читать дальше и всем советую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
