Elements of Chemistry: Attraction
Elements of Chemistry: ATTRACTION (Hypothesis Series Book 1) - Penny Reid

Martin is rich, smart, hot, athletic, and a bully. He has everything but a loving family. Kaitlyn is smart, socially awkward, shy, a product of a loving, but overachieving family. Martin happens to be her lab partner and she overhears something that could damage him. More on that later.
She tells him what she overheard. He invites her on vacation with him and his team. She admits to really liking him and they (of course) have great chemistry. Kaitlyn is *different* from all the other girls. This ends of a cliffhanger. Both Kaitlyn and Martin are likable and I enjoyed the writing style/banter. I probably would read more of their story, but the ebook is too overpriced (4.99) for the length and I didn't enjoy this *that* much to fork out that.
And on to my problem and it's NOT resolved in any satisfactorily way.

Kaitlyn overhears a guy and gal talking about drugging and raping Martin to blackmail him. Bonus points if a pregnancy occurs. The guy was bragging about drugging girls and then having sex with them. Kaitlyn hears him OPENLY admitting to drugging and rape. It turns out the guy is Ben, one of Martin's teammates. The gal is nameless. Does anything happen to Ben? Nope. Actually this quote sums it up perfectly: "Because he's strong and we, the boat, need him to win." Lovely, right? Good to know winning trumps everything else. Priorities bitch.

It Takes A Knitting Group To Save A Heiress
Marriage of Inconvenience - Penny Reid

All wrapped up, the couples are happy sated and have wonderful lives. ~Sigh~ I enjoyed all their stories but loved the ones that tied to the Winston brothers the most. I have a thing for those southern boys what can I say.
Kat, the mysterious knitter, she has always been aloof in the group. She has good reason, her parents, oye they are, well it's not good. Tiny Satan, one of her only available family members is just so ARGUH ! Holy shitake this girl has been on the hard pointy side of the rock and a hard place. If you've read along with the series you have seen hints of her lusty feelings for Dan the Security Man, and maybe some of his for her. Do either of them act on them? Hahahahha, no. Oh you wait now, Little Satan does something helpful for once, it's dastardly and underhanded but brings the two together to finally face those feelings. It may be the only good things he's ever done. :D Dan is Smoking hot, Kat is burning for some lovin' but they can't get past first base, why ? Read the book. All I've told you is the tame easy part of the story. Later in the story the whole gang comes together and it's a beautiful thing to read.

I'm Pushing This Into The Friend Zone
Dating-ish - Penny Reid
It's okay for me to love an author's work and not love some of her characters right ? It's feel wrong and I'm internally whining about it. I just don't have the "I want to have coffee with her" feelings for Marie. I need to feel for a character before I cuddle with them or share my coffee time, it's sacred. It's not you it's me Marie, :P. She was so focused on finding alternatives to physical love. so able to distance herself. I never felt the heart tugging struggle for this relationship from her. Matt, it took me a while to warm up to him, but I did. I wanted him to find happiness beyond his lab and cheered him on through all his blunders. ~SIgh~ I still never felt the desperation for them to get together as a couple as I have in previous books.
It all worked out in the end, it always does in Penny Reid books. I already downloaded the next book, Kat's story. There should be some serious Chicka Chicka Boom Boom moments in this one :P. I'm off the the coffee shop to begin their adventure.

I want a Drew and a Slice of Pie Too
Beauty and the Mustache: A Philisophical Romance (Knitting in the City Book 4) - Penny Reid

If you haven't started these series stop reading here and get to it. These are the best romcoms, filled with fabulous characters, bits of life wisdom and smexy times. So go get started Kitting in the City and the Winton brothers series. The characters mix and mingle so you will want to read both. :P
I love the redneck bearded Winton brother, adore their sister Ashley but Drew stole my heart away from them all. Drew the reluctant poet who sings, cooks, looks like a viking and he's a man of nature. Where do I get one or two of these ? Holy smokes Ms. Reid you are ruining me, how can I ever love another fictional man after Drew ? You have your work cut out for you !!!
The there are the ladies of the knitting club, and a man or two. Amazing women, funny, smart, strong of not but always behind each other. Their friendship is something we should all have in our lives.
The story, this one had a sadness that could have been horrendous to read but it wasn't. The author handled one of the hardest times in life beautifully she had me in tears and smiling at the same time. Death, jerky relations and unspoken feelings, all painful. As in all her books we end with a HEA, phew ! It's a new favorite, I will re-read it.
