    The complete package: a party in my head & pants!

    As if Penny Reid didn't already blow my mind enough, she goes and writes a new adult novel that far exceeded all my expectations. What was I might expecting you might wonder? I was expecting it to be funny and sexy and entertaining. I wasn't expecting it to be all of that raised to the tenth degree plus stimulating to both my brain and my pants, as Kaitlyn would say. The characters are real, the situations dramatic but exciting, and it's still hot and yet smart. How does she do it? Well she writes characters you can really connect with. I don't know who I loved more, Kaitlyn or Martin. Well I take that back. I totally loved them both, but I loved Kaitlyn more. Why? She's intelligent, talented, hard working, determined, desirable, beautiful, and she doesn't know it. She's more interested in what she can do on her own rather than living on the laurels of her famous family. She's honest and sincere and I totally had a girl crush on her. She's awkward around Martin because she's attracted to him and she doesn't know quite what to do about it when he actually shows interest in her. I feel ya Kaitlyn, I get tongue tied around good looking guys too! Coming to Martin, I can totally see why Kaitlyn wanted into his pants. I mean I loved him, but I lusted after him first. He's a rower! They have physical physiques like you would not believe! Plus he saw past Kaitlyn's baggy tees and cords and saw the beauty beneath. That's a total plus for him, and he waited for two years to have a chance with her. Granted he wasn't celibate those two years and a jerk to the women he was sleeping with, but he was upfront and honest with them, so I can't blame him too much for taking advantage at what was being thrown at him. It also turns out Martin has other redeeming features besides his beautiful body, and it has nothing to do with the size of his checkbook. The story itself was amazing. As in from the very first sentence until the last one. No slow story here, na uh. And I can't even fully list how many emotions I experienced while reading the book let alone in that first chapter, but I'm going to try. I was amused, confused, irritated, infuriated, aroused, entertained, and so much more. I went from laughing at Kaitlyn trying to scratch an itch on her back to fanning myself after Martin decided to help her. And if you're wondering how scratching an itch that's impossible to reach can be sexy, I would've never thunk it, but Penny managed to do it, and do it well! And I've got to say the dastardly plot to trap Martin made my blood boil. Lets just leave it at that. I also liked seeing Kaitlyn and Martin get to know each other, starting on that plane trip to Martin's beach house for spring break. It started moving from their physical attraction which was off the charts insane to let-me-get-to-know-you before we go any further. Attraction is 170 pages long. It doesn't feel like 170 pages and since Penny is a master at writing, it ended on sort of a cliffhanger, which should be considered a form of unnatural and unusual punishment (just my opinion). Well it's either a cliffhanger or it's not, there's no sort of, but it wasn't to the point where I wanted to pull out my hair because the next part wasn't available. However waiting for Heat to be released is going to be tough. I had to pre-order the next part and I'm counting down the days until it's here! There's so much more I want to talk about but trust me on this, you have to read Attraction to see how amazing it is!

    Not for me

    I liked the female character, she is quirky, smart and entertaining. However, I really didn't like Martin, he was overbearing and pushy and she let him. I just really didn't like the liberties he took with her, they go from lab partners that never speak (and she is so naive and inexperienced) to him copping a feel whenever he wants. It's just unbelievable. I also despise books like this, there are 3 in the series and at most you need 1 book, super short books for the price. I don't recommend it to anyone

    I'd read this again for sure

    I couldn't stop the smile or laughter while reading this book. I loved the way the main characters were with each other and I enjoyed this funny and sexy read.

    Attraction - Penny Reid

    I loved this book and in fact, the whole series, which I read over two days. Penny Reid has such a way with words that at times, the story is secondary to her word mastery. I enjoyed the way she writes as much as what she writes. I can't wait to read more of her books.

    Penny Reid gives me all the FEELS!!

    Typically, if I read a book blurb and college is mentioned anywhere in that blurb, I pass. I know, I know, this does make me a bit of a snob (I own that) and I am sure I have missed out on many fantastic stories, but staring at 40 sometimes when reading about college aged characters makes me roll my eyes and feel old. However, with Penny Reid I would read ANYTHING she writes (you know my fangirl tendencies with her), even a college romance story, like Attraction. I have read pretty much every book Penny Reid has written at this point and I can state with authority (of which I have none) that I'm pretty sure it is impossible for Penny Reid to write a bad book. I love her writing, her style, her sense of humor, the characters she creates, all the feels she infuses her stories with and now I love this start of a trilogy about two college students who are fumbling their way through their "attraction" to one another (see what I did there?). Attraction starts off right away very addicting and interesting. Thank goodness it is Spring Break around here or my kids would have never gotten picked up from school! Once you start reading about Kaitlyn and Martin, it is VERY hard to stop reading their story. In case you aren't aware Penny Reid took her Elements of Chemistry story and broke into three books (they are full stories, not shorts or novellas): Attraction, Heat and Capture. All these books will be release fairly close together so you won't be waiting too long to get the complete story. Thank you for that, Penny. Everything I love about Penny Reid's writing is here in Attraction. Kaitlyn is a painfully awkward 19 year old that has lots of quirky habits and endearing ticks but she is also an honest and loyal friend to those who know her. Her obliviousness is part of her charm and I fell for her instantly. Martin is the man about campus that everyone wants (or has had) and we are ready to judge him right off the bat based on Kaitlyn's assumptions that he is a jerk face. However, with this being a Penny Reid book, Martin doesn't do what we expect and he is more than his reputation and my heart is so very happy to see where this couple will take us. Since this book is broken into three parts, expect Penny Reid to leave us wanting (craving and cussing for) more story when we get to the end of Attraction. Luckily, part 2, Heat comes out in a couple of weeks (April 30th) so we can stop pacing the floor wanting to know what happens next. Penny Reid is a storyteller that shows me with every book that she is the real deal. Her books seem genuine, the humor is real (not forced) and she creates these characters that you can't help but fall in love with (even if they are nerdy or jerk faces). I get goosebumps and my heart beating up in my throat reading about Kaitlyn and Martin. The Elements of Chemistry series (so far) is a magical mix of feels, heat and spark that I HIGHLY recommend. Attraction releases today and (as of this post) is only $0.99!! I guarantee this will be your best dollar spent all week! If you are a Penny Reid devotee, like I am, then you probably have already read and fallen in love with this book, but if you are on the fence about this series JUMP! I promise this book is just as good as you are hoping it would be. If you have never read a Penny Reid book, then I beg you to 1-click this gem and fall in love with the words Penny Reid puts on paper (or e-paper) you are in for a treat! Attraction is definitely a MUST 1-click book!
