Overview

Lucy London puts the word genius to shame. Having obtained her PhD in microbiology by the age of twenty, she's amassed a wealth of knowledge, but one subject still eludes her—people. The pendulum of passions experienced by those around her both confuses and intrigues her, so when she’s offered a grant to study emotion as a pathogen, she jumps on the opportunity.

When her attempts to come up with an actual experiment quickly drop from lackluster to nonexistent, she’s given a choice: figure out how to conduct a groundbreaking study on passion, or lose both the grant and her position at the university. Put on leave until she can crack the perfect proposal, she finds there’s only one way she can study emotions—by experiencing them herself.

Enter Jensen Walker, Lucy's neighbor and the one person on the planet she finds strangely and maddeningly appealing. Jensen's life is the stuff of campus legend, messy, emotional, complicated—in short, the perfect starting point for Lucy's study. When her tenaciousness wears him down and he consents to help her, sparks fly. To her surprise, Lucy finds herself battling with her own emotions, as foreign as they are intense. With the clock ticking on her deadline, Lucy must decide what's more important: analyzing her passions...or giving in to them?

    Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

    Lucy London is a bona fide genius, having been at university since the ripe old age of thirteen. Unfortunately, Lucy’s genius status means she doesn’t have the best people skills, which is a shame since she’s currently working in the peer counseling clinic in an effort to help students. Imperfect Chemistry is about Lucy’s efforts to learn about two topics that have always mystified her; people and passion. Lucy embarks on a study of passion and lust in an effort to maintain the only life she has ever known. Mary Frame does a fantastic job of showing us just how awkward Lucy is and she does it hilariously. Lucy is honest, straightforward and about to experience her first case of lust and love, and it comes in the form of her neighbor Jensen.

    The thing that is so appealing about Imperfect Chemistry is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously, which allows the reader to simply let go and enjoy Lucy in all her awkward glory. Her first real interaction with Jensen was genius and put her lack of people skills on full display, but it was even more appealing because she doesn’t connect enough to feel bad about it until that first encounter is over. Mary Frame has produced the perfect nerd romantic comedy for the New Adult set. There’s almost no angst and plenty of great secondary characters to keep you laughing while watching Lucy get hit by lust and emotions for the first time. This is a great story that was very charming. In the words of Ted, “she is so weird, I think I love her.”

    I read this New Adult Romantic Comedy with great pleasure and speed. Thank you. A New Adult Romantic Comedy. We need more of these.




    It isn't all laughs but it is a sweet and engaging romance with great secondary characters. The heroine has the social awkwardness of the genius female stereotype but its a troupe I enjoy so Yea for me!




    The hero is a great person. Wow. Imagine that. There are surprises along the way and a very enjoyable HEA.




    I am excited about the next book in the series and any others that follow.
    Mary Frame is a promising new romance writer and I will pre order the her next book for certain.




    The book has its rough patches. The character development needs work. I have no idea what Lucy looks like--she has long hair and a good body under her practical clothes. This is all I know. What are her degrees in exactly?




    Why does the hero focus on the subject matter he does? His parents are very flat and uncomplicated.
    There are just loose threads here and there and belief I have to suspend that if I thought about too much would make me crazy.




    But overall, I am charmed and looking forward to this writer's development.
