Publisher's Summary

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 Martin's 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?

Contains mature themes.

    Story
    "Ardent Penny Reid Fan, but so mad re: cliffhanger"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Well... I love the Knitting in the City AND the Winston Bro's books, so I was a little disappointed in this book. The writing was somewhat immature, and seemed to be missing the Penny Reid sophisticated wit... BUT, what really, really bummed me out was the cliffhanger! I was sooo disappointed in Ms. Reid - cliffhangers are below her.


    Would you recommend Attraction: Elements of Chemistry to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not, but only because of the cliffhanger.... you have to pay another $30+ to find out what happens. I won't do it because I am diametrically opposed to buying three books to get one story. I should have done my research before buying the first story, so that is on me!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    To finish the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps this was early work by Ms. Reid, as her other books are thorough and complete. I love series, not three books to finish one story.

    Story
    "NOTHING LIKE KEEPING YOU HANGING ON!!!"

    Nothing like keeping you hanging on for the next book. Once I got through all the weird/strange monologue and listened to the good parts of the story it ended abruptly. I hate it when books do that to you, at least it could have given you a little more of what next to expect. Plus why in every book you read when a girl finds a guy making out with another girl they walk away???? Why don't they confront them at the time??? Put them on the spot?? Just once I would love to read a story to see what the guy does and what excuse he makes up and to see how both girls react - the one he's cheating on and the one he is cheating with!
    Anyway this is a good story regardless of the strange main girl of the book so I plan on purchasing the next book. I guess that's what they want you to do to make the money. But just saying.....it sucks!!!!

    "Great reader but just chapters of a story"
    What did you like best about Attraction: Elements of Chemistry? What did you like least?

    I loved the reader of the story. She did a great job, and she has a great voice. However, I hate that this not just a story that ended on a cliffhanger, but it is a story that just suddenly stops in the middle of the first section. Most cliffhangers wrap up a few key points while leaving room open for additional unresolved issues. This one felt like someone shot the narrator, and Audible didn't have the heart to tell anyone.


    Would you recommend Attraction: Elements of Chemistry to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this story unless all three parts: Attraction, Heat and Capture are packaged as on audio book.


    What does Cris Dukehart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cris reads the part of the heroine in such a way that her comments and expressed thoughts are less weird and more appallingly vulnerable. Just reading the story myself, she grated more.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    This romance would have been more irresistible if it had not been amputated at the end in the worst place. It was rude to the reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I reiterate ...package all three parts as on book and offer it on Audible, so it is actually worth a credit.

    A great geek girl/jock book. Rowers are soooo hot! The characters add to the story in an intriguing and exciting way.

    Story
    "Cute and Fun"

    I will start with the review of the book. I really like Penny Reid's writing she's witty and fun. I didn't want to stop listening. Kaitlyn is pretty silly at times but I love that she's a practical thinker. Martin seems to be the perfect "book boyfriend" all about the girl but in general he's very flawed. He's truly a entitled jerk but let's face it's hard to resist a guy that wants to pamper and protect his girl.

    So this is where I talk about what's wrong with this book(s). I hate hate hate this broken up format this story is only one book. It not quite bothersome if your only purchasing the 2.99 Kindle books but it becomes spendy if you want the audiobook. I did not use credits to purchase these books, if I would have, it would been over $30. If you choose to read these book be sure to purchase the Kindle book and add the audiobook it will cost you about $17 which equals less than 2 credits.

    Story
    "Off to a good start!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I certainly would. Narrator Cris Dukehart is very good. I liked her instincts for giving vocal personality to main characters Kaitlyn and Martin as well as to the supporting characters.


    Would you recommend Attraction: Elements of Chemistry to your friends? Why or why not?

    This novel was recommended to me by my book buddy, Teresa M., who loved it and gifted the e-book box set to me for my April 2016 birthday. I will admit that the synopsis didn't really stand out to me when I originally read it, but I waited several months and just went into it blind. Not remembering the synopsis at all, I dove into this listen with just my friend's enthusiastic recommendation in mind. I liked Kaitlyn's quirks and Martin's alpha tendencies, so I see why my book buddy recommended it to me now. Obviously, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes quirky female heroines and alpha male heroes.


    Have you listened to any of Cris Dukehart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. This is my first of her performances that I'm aware of and I enjoyed it a lot. I dove right into the next novel in this series, Heat (Elements of Chemistry #2) before even writing the review for this first one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Elements of Chemistry: When Attraction Trumps Logic


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hooked and almost done with Heat (Elements of Chemistry #2) as I post this review.
