Christy's Review

Part 2 of Penny Reid’s Element’s of Chemistry is aptly named Heat. Things really start to heat up between Martin and Kaitlyn. They are still in the bliss of their perfect week together. After that cliffhanger from book one, we get to see what happened and why.

Kaitlyn learns a lot about Martin. Things about his past and family. Things that have shaped him into the person he is today. Someone who has to be callous at times, has to protect themselves. Kaitlyn sees that. She sees him.

“Are you always like this?”

“Like what? Amazing?”

“Yeah… amazing.”

I did love seeing the growth in their relationship. I know things may seem fast to some readers, but these two have known each other for a while. Both of their feelings haven’t just developed overnight. Their love and passion for each other is something that took time and is just now starting to bloom. Martin makes Kaitlyn feel special. He makes her feel like she is worth everything to him.

I felt cherished. I felt. And it felt like perfection.



This installment was a bit more serious than the last, but you know Penny Reid still brings the smart, the quirky and the funny. I adore the banter between these two. The times they made me giggle, it was a nice break from some of the serious things going on.
“Listen to me for one fucking second, okay?”

I also whispered, but only because he was whispering, “Only if you stop using the f-word like you get paid royalties every time you say it.”

“I’ll fucking use whatever fucking word I want to fucking use whenever I fucking want to.”

I’m not going to sugar coat this- the end of this installment broke my heart. This cliffhanger was far worse than the last for me. Thankfully the next part will be out shortly. I can’t wait to see how Martin and Parker’s story ends!

“We can’t change the past. But we can change how much importance we allow it to have over our future.”


Tour: Heat by Penny ReidHeat
Publication Date: April 30, 2015
Elements of Chemistry: HEAT is part 2 of a 3 part series (65k word novel) and ends in a cliffhanger.
**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.

About Penny Reid

Author-Photo-Penny-Reid-300x300SEX! 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.
