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.

Favorite Quotes:

“I’ve seen how he looks at you.  He wants to have a penis party in your vagina.”

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

“Damn he was delicious.  Being so close to him had my hormones throwing a parade and making a Slip ‘n Slide out of my pants.”

“If multiple orgasms are a myth, then you can call me Hercules.”

My Review:

Part 2 of Elements of Chemistry has the young couple in transition with an interesting and exciting period of discovery.  They are getting to know each other on every level – oh-la-la.   Personal and family secrets are revealed and it is eye-opening, thrilling, and electrifying, and when they found their groove and pull together – my heart was soaring for them. This installment is far more serious, emotional, and anxiety provoking than the first, yet I found it equally absorbing and well written.  As is often the case, just when I was all relaxed and happy – tragedy struck… and another despicable cliffhanger.  I am yet again broken-hearted and a bit cross with Penny Reid right now – my bottom lip seems to have tripled in size.   Hmm, in a surprising reversal of opinion, I find I am more disappointed in the girl than the boy this time.

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.
