I love Penny Reid’s writing. Her Element’s of Chemistry series has been a huge hit for me. The characters are quirky, funny and our main man Martin is sexy as can be. It’s got that special kind of smart humor. That along with the steaminess is the perfect combination. There were parts of this particular installment (especially towards the middle) that frustrated me, but overall it was a great conclusion to Martin and Parker’s story.
Martin and Kaitlyn’s story picks up months after Heat left off. That cliffy was terrible so I was happy to get back to the two of them. Things between them have changed drastically. Now that they are back in each others lives, they are focusing on friendship.
Martin and Katy try desperately to be the friend each other needs. They spend time together, support one another, but it’s glaringly obvious that they both want each other. That they are each still in love with the other. Well, it’s obvious to everyone but Katy.
I think Katy is a fantastic heroine and overall a wonderful character. I loved her so much in the first two books. I loved her in this story as well, but there were moments she really did irk me. I felt she was wayyyyyy too smart to be so dense at times. Martin on the other hand, he didn’t irk me at all. He was pretty damn perfect. All swoony and sexy as can be.

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.
