Elements of Chemistry - Attraction



24950568.jpg de Penny Reid (2015).

Présentation de l'éditeur : One week. Private beach. Invisible girl. Jerk-faced bully. What’s the worst that could happen?

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 his 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?

Je ne lis pas beaucoup de romans avec des jeunes héros, quand je le fais ce sont des livres d'auteurs que je connais déjà donc sur le peu que j'ai lu, je les ais bien aimé... Et donc ici aussi j'ai bien aimé, mais je pense que j'attendrais de lire les tomes 2 et 3 pour avoir un avis définitif.

Kaitlyn m'a tout de suite plu (le fait qu'elle soit fan de Doctor Who n'y est pour rien xD), elle est loin d'être naive, ne laisse pas faire et hésite pas à sortir de bonne répliques pour déstabiliser et adoucir l'atmosphère. Elle a beau ne pas avoir d'expérience de la vie amoureuse, c'est pas ça qui va l'empêcher de dire le fond de sa pensée à Martin ^^

Martin, mâle alpha de sa bande d'amis, on découvre aussi qu'il est moins sure de lui quand il se retrouve seul face à Kaitlyn. elle ne le traite pas comme les autres et n'attend rien de lui, alors forcément il est tout chamboulé...

Cette première partie se termine sur le 1er "obstacle" qui va devoir être surmonté, je l'ai trouvé bien mené, avec quelques bouts d'intrigues dévoilés petit à petit pour attiser la curiosité et donner envie de lire la suite. Maintenant j'attend xD

 I do not read many novels with young adults, when I do they are books by authors I already know so I liked those I read... This one I liked it too, but I think I would wait to read volumes 2 and 3 for a final opinion.

I really liked Kaitlyn (the fact that she is a Doctor Who fan has nothing to do with it xD), she is far from naive, she do not let herself be pushed around and do not hesitate to drop witty comments to destabilize and soften the atmosphere. She may have no love life experience but it won't prevent her from saying what she thinks to Martin ^^.

Martin, alpha male of his group of friends, we also discover that he is a little insecure when he is alone with Kaitlyn. She doesn't treat him like the others and expects nothing of him, so naturally she shakes him up...

This first part ends on the first "impediment" that will have to be overcome, I found it great, with a few bits of intrigue revealed gradually to stir curiosity and make me want to read the next books. Now I wait xD






SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
