Publisher's Summary

It's been nine months since Kaitlyn Parker has seen or heard from Martin Sandeke - nine months and five stages of matter. She's lived through the worst of first-love heartbreak and is most certainly stronger (and less likely to hide in science cabinets) than ever before. But now Martin is back, and he wants to be friends. But he's sending mixed signals to the Bunsen burner in Kaitlyn's pants. Will Martin recapture Kaitlyn's heart? Can Kaitlyn and Martin ever be just friends? Or, despite an abundance of chemistry, are some bonds just too unstable to endure?

Nerdy is good, angsty is not

Part of the reason I was not crazy about this story is that it was drawn out into three parts. Serials are often a lot like soap operas, melodramatic and seemingly never-ending. I like my stories written more concisely and my series to be individual stories. I previously loved the Penny Reid books I read. This is the first time I couldn’t mark it higher than three stars. This three book serial could have been written as one novel.
The narration was good, she is proficient with voices and timing, a real pleasure to listen to.

Don't bother

This book is one of 3 so don't bother to read it if you didn't start from one. Also, don't bother reading at all since it's one long book of angsty drama between two characters that react like children instead of adults. If I wasn't one of those people that need to finish what I started, I'd have stopped reading right away. Ugh! Basically, they end up together and that's all you need to know.

Excellent Conclusion!

Penny Reid knows how to get all the feels! This trilogy was fantastic. Smart, funny, and with just enough angst to make the HEA even better!

disappinted

i read quite of few of Penny Reid's books, i love The Winston brother's and thought to give this a try. first book in series was good, short but knew their was obviously more. second book was good, and this one was just disappointing. way too long, repetative. frustrating. made me mad at the main character, self sabotaging and undervaluing herself. just wanted to finish it and complete it. overall ok, just could have shortened it by a lot.

l feel happy with how this ended. 💖

yea l did have alot of moments of frastation and lot of moments talkimg to myself. but l got the point just how we are as human nature lookimg for the negative even though the positive is so obvious. he did so much hoping she will see or hear and make the happy ever after start soon. with her she was going with somewhat outdated information to guide her which l can see it more self preservation /doing what is right (which is more in her nature ) but l was so proud she just told him just to take it all back 30 second later. l love the idea of the sidekick /mirror (we all sidekick/mirror in our relationship) 😍🌺👌 l really did enjoy this Corky 3 part book.

Finally, they are both being honest !

The conclusion to our little saga is contained within this episode. If you haven't read or listened to the previous episodes, I would recommend you take that journey with our two young and quirky lovers, it is a tangled web, with outsiders affecting the relationship between two really likeable characters.
I am not commenting on this episode, as the writer has led us to a point, where we have watched life at its dirtiest. It is only a short journey to the end, one which I whole heartedly enjoyed, each step on that life changing journey.

Good Series

Good ending to this series. This one was a little more or a lot more angsty but still quite amusing and made me laugh out loud. Kaitlin and Martin make the perfect least likely couple. The narrator did a great job with all 3 books.

Smart, funny, angsty

Capture is so smart and funny and angsty. I am so glad I read & listened to these books after they were all released and I didn’t have to endure those crazy cliffies for too long.

In Capture Martin and Katelyn have to rediscover each other. They have both changed, grown and matured and it is no little feat to overcome the obstacles that they have left in the path.

I loved this series and listened to most of it on audiobook because of the great narration.

Enjoyed it more the 2nd time, narrator amazing

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
3.5 stars — Interesting conclusion to the series. I simultaneously enjoyed the way this one played out, and grew frustrated with the obvious plot ploys…I knew exactly what was going on, and so it was frustrating to watch my hero and heroine fumbling around missing each other. Made me spend a lot of time wondering if *this* would finally be the moment where they would get it. So that took me out of the moment a little while reading. But like I said, I also kind of enjoyed the way their relationship played out. So basically I confuse even myself. 😛

So what exactly did I enjoy? I enjoyed seeing them both grow over the time that they were apart. I enjoyed the way Martin was trying to reconnect with Kaitlyn, even if Kaitlyn was too oblivious to see it. I liked their interactions with each other. Their friendship did make me smile. They still had their volatile moments, but at least Martin was less “evil” sounding from her perspective. And when things finally started moving in the direction I wanted it to, I really enjoyed the way it ended and the bit of HEA we got to see.

ON REREAD:
4 stars — Surprisingly, given my rating changed slightly, I think my original review stands true. So why did I enjoy it more? Hmmm…it could definitely be that listening to Ms. Dukehart narrate it was just more fun somehow… It could be that I kind of knew that this edition was going to be a whole bad communication thing, so I was prepared…and thus it didn’t bother me as much? I don’t know. But I did. I still feel the same way, but I was just more satisfied somehow. Don’t question it, just bask in the enjoyment.

This was recommended

I bought the series after reading a recommendation for Penny Reid’s books in Elements series. What a mistake. This is more for adult teenagers that have no clue. The sayings and just general pathetic-ness of the main character was irritating. If you want to listen to bad language and awful awkward sex scenes then this series is for you. I can’t wait to delete the lot.
