Review of Elements of Chemistry: Part 2 Heat by Penny Reid

The bit on the back…

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.

After being left with a massive, jaw dropping cliff hanger at the end of part 1 Attraction, and then quickly discovering that, thank goodness, the first chapter of part 2 was just over the page I was really looking forward to reading Heat. I had it on pre-order from Amazon and luckily for me it was released early, so receiving that e-mail to say it had downloaded was a great surprise.

This is the 2nd part in Kaitlyn Parker’s story and continues directly from the end of part 1. You definitely have to read Attraction first and be aware that the blurb and this review could contain some spoilers for part 1 if you haven’t read it already – so look away now!

We join Kaitlyn again at Martin private beach mansion half way through her spring break. Things between the pair are starting to heat up (hence the name of this part?) and although Parker is trying to maintain the slow and steady pace of their relationship but Martin has other thoughts. To be honest I was completely taken with Martin’s pursuit of Kaitlyn and I really wanted her to go with his flow on how their relationship should progress. I definitely feel the attraction that Parker has to Martin but there is something that holds her back and I think Martin hits the nail on the head further into this section of the story when they argue about Parker’s inability to feel something without looking at it logically, and rationalising it first.

Carrying on from the previous chapters the same quirky chemistry references are throughout the story and I really liked that. Parker continues to be quirky herself in these chapters but her quirks are explored in more detail through Martin’s analysis of her.

The story has left off on another cliff hanger, although not quite as huge as the last part and it has categorically ensured I will be reading the third and final part of this series, which I now have on pre-order.
