  • HEAT totally brings the passion and tension!

    Boy did the flame hit the fire in this book, in more ways than one. Thankfully Heat picks up right where Attraction left off. The sucker punch I felt at the end of Attraction quickly eased and things were getting better between the two wonder kinds. Which was great until I realized the growth Kaitlyn and Martin had undergone was once again stymied but this time it might be for good. And I was sucker punched all over again and this time it was so much worse. Let me back track because chances are your mouths are open with shock if you haven't read the book yet, but have started the series. Here's the thing. Kaitlyn and Martin are both stubborn. I already know that, if you've read either or both books that are out, you know that. It's a given fact. Both of them have their own plans for the future and even differing ideas on how their "relationship" will play out. Seeing the two butt heads was interesting at first because it usually resulted in Kaitlyn playing her synonym game, but then things come to a head and all of a sudden they're facing major problems. Some of it is from internal conflict and the rest of it is from the outside world. I never realized how different Kaitlyn and Martin were in the way they thought until I read Heat. Of course both of them have had vastly different childhoods and experiences. It shaped them both in ways that were difficult for them to overcome. They clash regarding what they want and what makes them happy and it's not pretty. There were other people around them who also influenced their actions and I didn't like them very much. This part of Kaitlyn and Martin's story really showed the impact their parents had on them. I'm trying to be nice but I really didn't like their parents much. Especially the chinless and spineless wonder that was Martin's biological father. That man is loathsome. Of course I'm making it sound like this book was all strife and being stubborn, but it wasn't. Both Martin and Kaitlyn really invested themselves into what was happening between them. I loved seeing them laugh and realize they could be their true selves with one another. They were able to overcome many of the initial hurdles keeping them from being with each other. The chemistry between them was still as strong as it was in Attraction and I think it go even hotter in Heat. I love how the anticipation between them just continued to grow and grow and I was almost panting by the time they decided to do anything about it. There may have been a need to change underwear during this part. Hey, Martin might be a jerk face, but he can woo and he certainly delivers the goods. One thing I absolutely loved about this book was the realism in it. Penny really did a great job at capturing the intimacy, awkwardness, and discomfort someone having sex for the first can feel; it wasn't all fireworks and wonderful. Kudos to her for keeping her books real, smart, and authentic. This is why Penny's book are like chips. They're addictive and you can't stop with just one. I'm not sure whether to thank Penny or shake her for taking Kaitlyn and Martin's story and braking it up into parts. I love reading about them every few weeks, but the story is so amazing, I want to read it all at once and all right now. Capture can't come soon enough. With the way things ended between Kaitlyn and Martin in this book, it's going to be next to impossible to wait patiently to see if they can overcome this hurdle. They're both so stubborn, maybe too stubborn. I can't wait to see how they overcome the new challenges that have been thrown their way. I have a feeling the resolution will be spectacular.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • *** 3.5 STARS*** Cliffhanger warning

    *** 3.5 STARS*** Cliffhanger warning So this is the second book in the elements of chemistry series. It takes off where Attraction left off and continues the story of Kaitlyn and Martin. Overall, I enjoyed this book until the end. As I mentioned before, I like Penny Reid's writing and I did like the characters. To be honest though I ended up liking and feeling sorry for Martin a lot more in this book than in the first one. I liked the development of their story. Having said that I had a number of issues with the book. It was again focused on the rest of the week they spend together. I don't understand why the time is so constrained. It makes the emotions weaker. Also a number of things came to light about Martin's past, and Kaitlyn way of dealing with issues, but these were never explored in the book. And that kept the characters from developing depth. I also had massive issues with the cliffhanger ending. It felt unnatural and forced. I didn't like Kaitlyn's righteous and holier than thou attitude, her unwillingness to fight, and her lack of empathy for Martin. I get that he was living in the past but expecting him to drop all that in a second just because she wants him to seemed childish. And giving him an ultimatum also seemed childish. Martin also acting badly in the last argument and that seemed out of character, considering how much he worked at trying not to hurt Kaitlyn. Again, it felt angst was created for the sake of angst. It really detracted from their story. Having said that I went ahead and read the third one because I wanted to see this through.
