Overview

Chemistry: Book Two
Sequel to Organic Chemistry

When his college biochemistry class turns out to be much more difficult than star quarterback Freddie Samuelson imagined, his lab partner, Kurt Maxwell, agrees to help. They’re very different: a rich kid athlete and a hardworking openly gay scholarship student. But Kurt slips past Freddie’s defenses, and little by little—despite Freddie ignoring his own sexuality in the past—Freddie realizes he wants to get to know Kurt, especially when Kurt helps him through more challenges than their science class. But it isn’t long before rumors begin to fly, and the obstacles Freddie will face may block him from both the future he planned on and the future he didn’t know he wanted.

    Enjoyed this amazing story about Kurt and Freddie

    I have read several of Andrew Grey's books over this last week and I have enjoyed them all. I hope you continue to tell Kurt's and Freddie's story!

    Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog

    This is the second book in the Chemistry series, however, it can be read as a stand alone. For readers that have read Organic
    Chemistry, it'll be a pleasure to see Brendon and Josh again.

    Kurt attends college through a scholarship sponsored by Freddie's father. Freddie, the star quarterback, needs some help from Kurt
    to pass his biochemistry class. When they realized they are falling for each other, they have to overcome negative opinions from their
    friends, the football team, and Freddie's father.

    The build up of Freddie's and Kurt's romance is well written and filled with obstacles, mostly on Freddie's side. Freddie is unsure of his
    own sexual orientation and insecure in his identity as a football player and college student. He faces difficult decisions on how to come
    out to his family, his team, and the school. His father also gives him a lot of pressure (and threats) to be a football star, instead of
    succeeding academically. No one believes in him or encourages him to discover his potential beyond playing football until Kurt.

    Kurt, on the other hand, is out and pride. The only struggles he deals with in the book are rejections from Freddie and the threat of
    Freddie's father revoking his scholarship. Kurt's troubles all stem from Freddie. When Freddie is still unsure of their relationship and
    wants to hide their relationship from the public, Kurt says no. Kurt is the stronger person and I think Freddie needs Kurt more than Kurt
    needs Freddie.

    The only character that I was confused about is Freddie's father. He switched personalities too fast. Originally, he is against gay
    relationships, threatens Freddie with stopping Kurt's scholarship, and just thinks about his son as the football star. At the end,
    Freddie's mother "talked" with him and then he become so accepting. The resolution to Freddie's family tensions comes too easily and
    too fast.

    Overall, the story is very predictable. The theme is very similar to the first book, Organic Chemistry. I still enjoyed the story and reading
    about Freddie coming out of the closet, but I liked the first book better.

    Sexy and engaging

    Andrew Grey is one of those authors that I turn to when I want to read a romance that makes me feel good. He does a wonderful job building a world with believable characters who have a lot of heart. Kurt Maxwell transfers to Dickinson College as a junior because initially the cost of tuition was out of his reach. He is awarded the Samuelson scholarship for his academic achievements and is literally pushed off the sidewalk by the overbearing and initially self-centered football quarterback Freddie Samuelson. Freddie's father is the namesake for the scholarship and feels an incredible amount of pressure to keep himself in the closet. When Kurt agrees to help Freddie with their biochem class they start to develop a friendship and relationship. Freddie's father is willing to go to almost any length to keep these two from being together. I enjoyed seeing Freddie's growth as a person and watching the relationship develop between Freddie and Kurt. I also liked seeing reappearances by Josh and Brendon. If you are looking for a sweet and sexy romance or are already an Andrew Grey fan, this is the book for you.
