Review : Elements of Chemistry: Attraction (Hypothesis 0.25) by Penny Reid (ARC edition)


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?

My review :

** ARC provided by Penny Reid for an honest review! **

This is the End of the story and I’m craving for more!
Penny you did it again!
Sexy, funny, witty, nerdy, I was caught by the story! It’s official, Kaitlyn you’re my hero and I’ve got a big crush for this character and Martin, just wow! Chicka wow wow!!
This book was not only entertaining with no time out but only educative at the same time! As a nerdy girl, this works for me and the chemistry was definitely here!


Meet Kaitlyn (I couldn’t help to create graphics, Penny, I hope you don’t mind!) and Martin, lab partners, never having any kind of relationship until one night, when she saved him from a nefarious plot.
What happened when a girl trying to be invisible, hiding sometimes into cabinets and closets, pragmatic, thoughtful, very smart but totally oblivious to socialization and a hot Hercule, unobtainable bachelor, man-whore ? Chemical reaction :  Fireworks, goose bumps, desire, and an undeniable attraction!


A trip to an secured island, and then Kaitlyn was getting out from her comfort zone, to an uncharted territory at so many levels. I definitely love this girl, with her straightforwardness and her strong support for the ones she loves. Her rambling thoughts and her behavior made her so endearing!
And Martin,… WOW, he was obviously not perfect but totally aware of this flaws and he was an integrated person, very expressive and had the capacity to push Kaitlyn. Damn this boy was so determined and intense!
Some parts were so hot that reading that in the train was kind of difficult, because I.was.blushing.a.lot! Their interactions were a pure blast!


This is a kind of story written in a smart way, going to funny moments to intense ones, with the ability to attract the reader’s attention.
But Penny why did you do this to us? I’m not good with cliffhangers! I was saying out loud,: »WTF, Wait this is the end of part 1,? » it was kind of crazy!!!!! You’re just a tricky author!!! After coming to my senses, I realized that I would have more Kaitlyn, more Martin and more cookies!!!!
Penny, Merci beaucoup !
