From the New York Times Bestselling Author Penny Reid
This is the bundled version of the 'Elements of Chemistry' trilogy and includes parts 1-3 (ATTRACTION, HEAT, and CAPTURE)
He is everything she doesn't want, so why does she want him so badly?
What's the worst that could happen?
Kaitlyn Parker has no problem being the invisible girl, which is why she finds herself hiding in various cabinets and closets all over her college campus. Despite her best efforts, she can't escape the notice of Martin Sandeke--bad boy, jerkface bully, and the universe's hottest, wealthiest, and most unobtainable bachelor--who also happens to be Kaitlyn's chemistry lab partner.
Kaitlyn might be the only girl who isn't interested in exploiting his stunning rower's build, chiseled features, and family's billionaire fortune. Kaitlyn wants Martin for his brain, specifically to tabulate findings of trace elements in surface water.
When Kaitlyn saves Martin from a nefarious plot, Martin uses the opportunity to push Kaitlyn out of her comfort zone: spring break, one week, house parties, bathing suits, and suntan lotion. Can she overcome her aversion to being noticed? Will he be able grow beyond his self-centered nature? Or, despite their obvious chemistry, will Martin be the one to drive Kaitlyn into the science cabinet of obscurity for good?
It's too late to turn back now . . .
Four days left.
Private beach (...and boat).
Not so invisible girl.
And maybe less of a jerk-faced bully than originally thought.
What's the worst (or the best) that could happen?
Kaitlyn is finding life outside of the science cabinet of obscurity to be quite illuminating ...and so are her pants. When things heat up between Kaitlyn Parker and Martin--previously known as the jerk-faced bully--Sandeke, she places her trust in the one person she never thought capable of earning it, let alone keeping it safe. Fortunately or unfortunately for Kaitlyn, where she gives her trust she can't help but also give her heart.
But how will the world beyond the sanctuary of their newfound connection react to their relationship? Soon senators, chinless billionaires, and elements beyond Martin and Kaitlyn's control want to weigh in on the young couple's future.
Navigating the chaotic inferno of new love might be more than Kaitlyn bargained for, and much, much more than her trust--or her heart--can handle.
He broke her heart, and now he's back . . .
...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?

Awesome alpha clueless sweet girl story! If you enjoy Reids knitting series you'll enjoy this one to
Only reason I gave it a 4 star is because it was one sided. I bought this 3 book collection and had a hard time putting it down. Over 520 pgs of hilarious storyline.
How did I not know this author?? I read all the time..Great books, good books, mediocre books....always trying to find another favorite author. Well she has definitely made the list! Great dialogue, engaging storyline and truly awesome writing.
Penny reid is now one of my favorite authors. You laugh you cry but mostly you loc and laugh.
Well I really like all the Penny Reid books I've read, but the characters here are a little hard to relate to and the best friend sidekick a little too convenient. Its hard to believe that anyone can spend all their time playing video games and doing chemistry and somehow miraculously be a brilliant musician without ever having any training. Kaitlyn is also a little bit too obtuse...it doesn't quite ring true. And how could she give someone a Frodo soapdish? That is too much. Oddly enough, Martin is more believable. Certainly I have encountered people like him. His family is so extreme that its hard to believe he can be as nice as he is, " underneath it all" . Good book and funny, but the emotion wasn't there until the very end. Meh... as they say.
Great New Adult Romance! I adore Penny Reid's books. When I am reading her books, I am happy. Period. Yea! This book or set of serials is not differnt. It is a fun read with intellectual, pop cultural and emotionail depths. The kind of fun I like. I love that Reid experiements with Romanceland. She wrote this piece first as little short story in an anthology. It was so short, her fans all screamed for more and kindly she gave us this long lovely New Adult Romance. So, she is playing around with all the New Adult tropes in here and does it well while blending on her nerdy socially awkward heroine. Good times. She is also playing with the serial format. I hate serials. I read too much and more than more book at time and would end up rereading the previous ones before the next so I always wait until I have the whole set. Ried has a good write up on why she broke this one up into parts. She thinks its long. It might be but I still read it very fast. Nom. Nom. Nom. I will say for serials these are well done. Each section is a satsfying course in of of itself and the cliffhangers don't make me want to kill things. This is a lovely romance. I am happy to have read it. It isn't staying with me the way some other books Reid has written have but its a very good read. I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.
