This is the review of Part 2: Heat from the three part book called Elements of Chemistry. It is the story of Kaitlyn Parker and her Lab partner Martin Sandeke. This book starts off from the cliffhanger from the last book.
I’ve kept this short and spoiler free cause one reaallly has to experience this book on their own.
Kaitlyn Parker is the girl, who doesn’t like standing out. Martin Sandeke on the other hand is the golden (bad) boy, is that a thing? I don’t know, if it isn’t it should be. He’s the campus hottest bachelor and Kaitlyn thinks she’s nothing special. Though I’m sure me, martin and everyone else who gets to know her disagrees.
I have no clue why anyone would want to start from the second book in the series but if you have, here’s what happened in the last book: Kaitlyn helped Martin with something bad that was about to happen and Martin in turn finally made his move, he invited her to spend her spring break with him, which she does….they are currently on an island near the Caribbean with their friends.
Penny Reid was really on point on not only naming the book but also saying that it has heat cause it was just….
Martin and Kaitlyn were as interesting as I remember if not more so. Martin is his cocky and intense self and Kaitlyn is as intelligent, quirky and awesome as she was in the last book but at the same time we find out so more about them. Why they are, the way are type of questions are answered.
Martin is trying to seduce Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn is trying her best to resist but really who can blame her when she fails.
But while this book has its funny moments, amazing chemistry between the protagonists, it also has some vulnerable moments as both Kaitlyn and Martin get to know each other, it has some serious angst and heartbreaking moments. We see their relationship develop and you can’t help but fall in love with them and with their love.
That cliffhanger though so gut wrenching and made me so sad, really how could you Penny Reid??? I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!
This book was a great second instalment in the series and I for one (if it isn’t obvious enough) really need the next book. Happy Reading!
And anyone who hasn’t started this series yet….
P.s Sorry had to keep it short and non-spoilery…you’ll thank me later. It was an effort really to not include any details hence it isn’t a great review since you know I like to waffle on about things.
