Attraction: Elements of Chemistry #1
Attraction: Elements of Chemistry (Hypothesis) (Volume 1) - Penny Reid

Hypothesis, Book 1.1

I Picked Up This Book Because: It was a Kindle freebie.

The Characters:

Martin Sandeke: Strong, possessive and a “jerk-face”
Kaitlyn “Katy” Parker: Logical, introvert, stupid smart.

The Story:

After Katy uncovers a plot to harm her lab partner, Martin he reveals his true feelings for her. Martin ends up whisking Katy and her best friend Sam away to a private island for a spring break getaway where they decide to take some time to get to know each other. Katy has already made up her mind that Martin and she will never happen but he does his best to try and change it.

This book reminded me what joy could be with reading. It was fun and free and covered a range of emotions. I felt an instant connection to Katy. We don’t learn much about Martin but I hear that changes in book two. He obviously has some things he needs to come to terms with and Katy is ready to take on that challenge. This really was a delight to read.

The Random Thoughts:

How to Save Money on College
Cracking the AP Chemistry Exam, 2016 Edition (College Test Preparation) - Princeton Review

I am trying to do as much AP work with my homeschool crew as possible to help them save money on college. I borrowed this book because I wanted to see how it breaks down. It is interesting as it shows explanations for answers and the girls know how to research and can find more if they have questions, or I can help them find the answers. I do think this will make our list of books for school.

Review: A Lesson in Chemistry with Inspector Bruce (Gentlemen of Scotland Yard Novella) by Jillian Stone
A Lesson in Chemistry with Inspector Bruce - Jillian Stone

A fun romp with two untitled and middle-class characters in late Victorian England. With that being said, the writing and characters are very modern - this is a very wall papery historical romance. However, there is a lot of interesting tidbits on the advancements of crime scene investigations/reconstructions and the art and science behind detective work during the period. There is a nice balance between sex and character/plot development.

A Lesson in Chemistry with Inspector Bruce - Jillian Stone

UPDATE: A Lesson in Chemistry with Inspector Bruce by Jillian Stone is the winner. 133 pages for a possible $2 to the bank.


June 10th Roll: 7 (6+1)

New Space: BL 32 - Roll 12 sided die and do a task. Rolled a 1 -Let a BL friend choose your book! Post a list of 4 books - first one to comment chooses your next read. 


Here are my four choices:

1. Sweet Disorder (Lively St Lemenston #1) by Rose Lerner (historical romance)

Blurb: Nick Dymond enjoyed the rough-and-tumble military life until a bullet to the leg sent him home to his emotionally distant, politically obsessed family. For months, he’s lived alone with his depression, blockaded in his lodgings.

But with his younger brother desperate to win the local election, Nick has a new set of marching orders: dust off the legendary family charm and maneuver the beautiful Phoebe Sparks into a politically advantageous marriage.

One marriage was enough for Phoebe. Under her town’s by-laws, though, she owns a vote that only a husband can cast. Much as she would love to simply ignore the unappetizing matrimonial candidate pushed at her by the handsome earl’s son, she can’t. Her teenage sister is pregnant, and Phoebe’s last-ditch defense against her sister’s ruin is her vote—and her hand.

Nick and Phoebe soon realize the only match their hearts will accept is the one society will not allow. But as election intrigue turns dark, they’ll have to cast the cruelest vote of all: loyalty…or love.


2. Stranded with a Scotsman by Serenity Woods (contemporary romance)

Blurb: Cori Spencer doesn’t particularly mind being stuck in a refuge hut three feet above the rising tide in the middle of the night. She’s fallen in love with Lindisfarne, the tiny island off the north-east coast of England that’s isolated from the mainland by the sea twice a day. The problem is that she’s not alone. She’s stranded in a ten-by-four-foot wooden box for four hours with Ewan Macbeth, and that’s not going to end well. She’s either going to kill him or kiss him—and she’s not sure which option is the most likely.

Ewan flew back from the States when his sister told him Cori had become engaged to a man she didn’t love just to please her father. The Earl once threw Ewan out when he found him kissing his daughter, prompting her to end their relationship. Ewan’s never forgotten her, and even though he’s certain there can never be anything between them again, he’s damned if he’s going to let her marry a man who doesn’t appreciate her.

With only a bottle of Lindisfarne mead, a crab sandwich, and Angry Birds to keep them company, the two of them end up playing a game of Truth or Dare that forces Cori to accept the truth about her relationship with her fiancé, and Ewan to push her to the very limits to admit her feelings for him.


3. A Lesson in Chemistry with Inspector Bruce by Jillian Stone (historical romance)

Blurb: As readers of The Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series already know, Archibald “Archie” Bruce heads up the crime laboratory for Special Branch. Undervalued and overworked, the brilliant young man has no time for a social life—that is, until the heroine's father, a noted chemist in his own right, offers Archie a deal. He will modify a secret latex compound that will transfer fingerprints from the crime scene to the lab. In exchange, Archie must agree to tutor his charming but exasperating daughter, Miss Fiona A. Rose, for the major pharmacy exam.

But as Archie and Fiona attempt to study for the major, they can't help but get involved in a bit of sleuthing. Was the fire in the opium den accidental or deliberately set? Who was behind the lab explosion? Not to mention the strange and haunting memory of a masquerade ball and a very seductive kiss...

Amidst the pop quizzes and danger, Fiona and Archie ultimately find the force of attraction too tempting to resist.


4. Then Came You by Becky Wade (contemporary romance)

Blurb: A leather-bound journal. A single father. A woman in pursuit of freedom.

Garner Bradford, heir to the troubled Bradford Shipping empire, doesn't know much about babies. But he's going to have to learn fast because he's just become a single father to his newborn daughter. As he confesses through his journal entries, he's not entirely sure how to keep a newborn alive, whether or not he'll ever patch together his shattered heart, or how to forgive himself for his mistakes.

Career girl Kathleen Burke is wholly uninterested in settling down. She has big dreams, and none of them include Garner and his small hometown in Washington State. Yet she can't seem to get her handsome boss out of her head or her heart. There's something extraordinarily tempting about his beautifully sad green eyes. . . .

Told through journal entries, phone conversations, and letters, Then Came You is a unique, heart-stirring romance novella by acclaimed author Becky Wade.
