Elements of Chemistry part 3 (70k word novel)
One week. 
Manhattan apartment. 
Super-hot ex-boyfriend.
…What’s the worst that could happen?
It’s been nine months since Kaitlyn Parker has seen or heard from Martin Sandeke—nine months and five stages of matter. She’s lived through the worst of first-love heartbreak, and is most certainly stronger (and less likely to hide in science cabinets) than ever before.
But now Martin is back. And he wants to be friends. But he’s sending mixed signals to the Bunsen burner in Kaitlyn’s pants.
Will Martin re-capture Kaitlyn’s heart? Can Kaitlyn and Martin ever be just friends? Or, despite an abundance of chemistry, are some bonds just too unstable to endure?

Capture is the final installment in the Elements of Chemistry series. I truly and sad that it is over. I absolutely LOVED this series however, book three fell a little short for me. Some of the humor and banter that really drew me into Martin and Kaitlyn’s story was a tad lacking in Capture.

After pulling out heart out in book one and two, Penny Reid does give us the drama in this one as well. The reader is left wondering throughout the whole book if Martin and Kaitlyn will get back together. I won’t tell you the answer so don’t ask.

One of the things I really enjoyed throughout the series was watching the characters grew up and into their own. Kaitlyn by the end of the series had much more confidence in herself and who she was. Martin also learned valuable lessons about himself and what is important.

Capture must definitely had me still in love with Martin. He is a top book boyfriend for me.
I highly recommend this series! The great humor and fun is not to be missed! The writing is stellar and I loved it all. 


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.
