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.

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.

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!!!!

Cliffhanger....

Attraction by Penny Reid (Audiobook)
Narrated by: Cris Dukehart
Series: Elements of Chemistry Book 1; Hypothesis 1.1

4 Stars - I loved Kaitlyn, loved her awkwardness and smarts. I have mixed feelings about Martin, as this book is a bit of a cliffhanger I will reserve judgement on him until I finish the rest of the books. I truly enjoy Penny Reid’s writing style and I have the next book ready to go!

Cris Dukehart did great on narration. Clear spoken with enough variety in her voices to differentiate characters.

Cute but expensive

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would like all three books presented as one novel. The current offering is three short books which cover 18 hours, and the cost is three credits. Not a realistic presentation..

Funny!

I love Penny Reid and this book is as hilarious as her Knitting Series. Didn’t like the romance book cliché ending though.

Snarky and endearing.

Penny Reid is the queen of snarky wit. this book does not disappoint. I'm not usually a fan of the YA genre but Penny Reid has way of crafting a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go. I'm off to find out what happens next in book 2

Not a full story.

I hate paying for books that aren't full stories. It should be made clear it's not just a series but breaks in the middle of the story.

Last 20 minutes were the best

The story was ok. I didn't think I wanted to read the other two books, but the last 15-20 were good. Left me hanging. Now I need to know WHY! Lol

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.

Absolutely fantastic

What a cliff hanger. Funny and smart. I do highly recommend this book and author.
