    One thought on “Imperfect Chemistry”

    1. IMPERFECT CHEMISTRY is NOT a look into a real-life romance. It's NOT a how-to guide for nerds. It's NOT erotica. If you're looking for those, look elsewhere. HOWEVER, if you're looking for something sweet, quirky, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is your book! Basically, Mary Frame wrote about the hilarity surrounding a female, horny Sheldon Cooper. You should read it. Why?A) it's hilariousB) the kissy-time/bowchicawowwow is HAWT, yet tastefulC) The story isn't just about sex. In fact, it's about [...]

    2. I really don't feel like I should rate my own book! I might be biased, and perhaps not in a good way. One of the only things I would like to put in my review of.lf, is this: I hope you laugh. Laughter truly is the best medicine, and my number one goal when I sit down and write a novel is to bring a little joy into someone's (YOUR!) day. To bring you that escapism that I have loved and craved throughout my life, and only occurs when I can fall into a wonderful story.In addition, I want to do some [...]

    3. I picked up this book for free at BookBub - which if you don't already know is a great place to find good bargains (and sometimes free ebooks!) on books - for it reminded me a lot of Jane from Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid and Kaitlyn Parker from Elements of Chemistry by Penny Reid and since you all know how much I absolutely adore Penny's writings - I decided to give this book a try! And I have to say I loved it! Lucy is an adorable geek! I loved her sense of awkwardness and her foray i [...]

    4. 5 Stars!Lucy London puts the word genius to shame. Having obtained her Ph.D. in microbiology at 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 she attempts to come up with an actual experiment quickly drop from lackluster to nonexistent, she's given a choice: fig [...]

    5. Such a sweet "coming of age" storyThis book was just adorable. Our heroine was a 20 year old doctor that worked at the college. She started college at 13 and was obviously a genius. However, when it came to socialization she was clueless. I liked her quirky personality and her journey to finding herself. The hero in this read was equally as loveable. While "coming of age" stories aren't my normal preference (because they do tend to have a bit of a "vanilla" feel to them for the most part, as did [...]

    6. *Book was won from a giveaway held by the author* When I finished reading the book my reaction was basically identical to Hermoine'sI adored this book. All the characters were likable and I seriously want Jensen as a neighbor because who wouldn't want a hot mysterious boy,who would offer to roast you a hot dog in a fire While reading the book I became I kept thinking 'If only I had the intelligence of Lucy'. If I started university at a young age like Lucy I would beout all day enjoying the sun [...]

    7. Imperfect Chemistry is one of those books that I seriously couldn't put down until I finished because I just had to know what happened. Reasons why you should read this: 1)Lucy. She's awkward, adorable, and absolutely hilarious. I honestly love her. 2)Jensen. He's the boy-next-door and he's hot, adorable, and an absolute sweetheart. LOVE LOVE LOVE him. 3)Freya. She's sassy, fun-loving, and an absolutely incredible best friend. I'm so ecstatic that Imperfectly Criminal is her story and can't wait [...]

    8. Had a hard time getting past the total nonsense set-up (the heroine has a doctorate in "immunology and pathogens" and is hired to work as a mental health counselor to gain experience for her research on emotions, for which she apparently receives almost no training there is so much no going on here I can't even). fortunately it gets much better from there. Awkward genius heroine, sweet artistic "poor little rich guy" hero, extremely awesome and supporting female friendships. The only other stick [...]

    9. Wabi-sabi is a Japanese principle that embodies the idea of transience and imperfection. Like the life cycle. We are born, we get old and we eventually die. Objects are the same, they get old and weathered, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s all a part of the cycle of nature. Wabi-sabi is about appreciating the beauty in our naturally imperfect world. One word: feel-good.Imperfect Chemistry was the perfect light read that I exactly needed at this very stressful time in my life right [...]

    11. I read this New Adult Romantic Comedy with great pleasure and speed. Thank you. A New Adult Romantic Comedy.

There are surprises along the way and a very enjoyable HEA.I am excited about the next book in the series and any others [...]

    12. This was a cute, fun book. I wish there was more at the end but overall, I really liked it. I love quirky, unique characters and Lucy was very endearing

    13. ** SALE - BOXSET only 99c**This book was absolutely perfect! It was short, sweet, and wonderfully entertaining. I loved the secondary characters just as much as the primary ones, and I felt that there was a perfect balance of how often they were in the story. I really needed a book like this right now, although I have liked some of the books I've read recently--I really needed a sweet, low-angst, cute, almost mindless (but mindless in the BEST way) kind of story. And this book delivered. I'm hon [...]

    14. I freaking loved this. It was cute, quirky and funny and the secondary characters were as awesome as the mains. I can't wait to see where this series goes.Check out my reviews at Oh shit I forgot to mention IT'S FREE amzn/1eUgViB

    15. Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame is a very different type of romance, and I guess it can be coined New Adult since the characters are in college and under the age of twenty-one. Opposites attraction perfectly here, and the main couple are very sweet together once they become friends. Also Jensen, the heroine’s love interest is a virgin! Love that! Also there’s no over the top angst or an emo wankfest from either one of these characters that has become very annoying in college set romances o [...]

Take one genius believing emotions are logical2. Add one grant to study emotional pathogens3. Slowly add friendship4. Turn up the heat in the form of the next door neighbour5.

    17. i really enjoyed this one, considering it was a kindle freebie i wasn't expecting much!Lucy is very proper, she does not interact with people at all although she is very clever and even went to university at 13.Lucy has to try and find an experiment to keep her funding, however she can not get close enough with people to be able to do this.She decides to do a social experiment on herself and young people to understand attraction and passion.Lots of funny one liners and awkwardness.This book very [...]

    18. Lucy is soooo adorkable!! I love her! She really blossomed from being a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly! I love her and Jensen's imperfect chemistry <3

    19. 4 Stars!I absolutely loved this story! Admittedly, I'm a sucker for those types of romances where you have the genius female who struggles with understanding emotion (or as Bethany accurately compares her to: Spock). I wanted to give this book a higher rating, but I felt that this rating was more appropriate. Now, let's get into a more in depth review.CharactersIf you hate Spock-like people, get out. Get out right now, because you'll be getting a face full of "cannot compute these emotions" and [...]

    20. I'm a fan of this type of geeky/genius heroine, this one didn't disappoint. Lucy was a loveable, albeit awkward character, I couldn't help rooting for her. Her love interest (Jensen) was endearing as well, their interactions were fun to see. Overall I liked this one and the audible version was well done. If your a Penny Reid fan I think this one will be a winner.

    21. DNF 85% - hence the 1* (it's not a bad book - I just got bored). The characters and romance lacked that oomph.Hero: Jensen Walker - starts off as the Tall, Dark, Handsome, Play-boy, Rich, Popular, Alpha cliché with every woman in Campus and Beyond in love with him.He turns into a Sensitive, Arty, Virgin, Loner-ish, Softy, Poor-Me-Rich-Kid with Mummy-&-Daddy issues to the point he's emasculated. Now if you're going to deviate from the Extrovert-Jock versus Introvert-Nerd formulaic romance th [...]

    22. celebrityreaders.wordpressThis ebook is free on !I really liked this story. Lucy was so fricking funny. It almost seemed like she was deliberate in her responses but she just had no idea how to deal with people. Her demeanor was crisp yet edgy. She was completely obtuse when it came to her emotions, which made this book that much more awesome. To see her thrive in academia but struggle with social settings.I mean, emotions as a pathogen? Think about it. A Pathogen. Come on! That’s funny, I don [...]

    23. Lucy is a child genius who at age 21 is finishing her doctoral studies. Having gotten a grant in order to conduct a study on emotions as pathogens (which, btw is a very interesting topic methinks), she has a lot on her plate. But since her study at the clinic isn't going that well and she could potentially lose her grant, Lucy decides to get a first-hand experience of emotions. The only problem is that she's quite clinical and logical and, as a result, she's never felt any emotions like attracti [...]

    24. ~ARC provided by Author + New Adult Book Club~What I liked- The humor. This was one of those laugh out loud books. The dialogue between Freya and Lucy had be cracking up every time. I was savoring everything that came out of Lucy's mouth. That girl is freakin hilarious. - The friendships. Yeah, yeah Jensen and Lucy, blah blah whatever! I LOVED Freya and Lucy's friendship. They had each others backs throughout it all and I really enjoyed seeing Lucy let ppl in and start enjoying life. - The pace. [...]

    25. 4 Platypires for Imperfect Chemistry by Mary FrameThis was a really fun read. I was immediately drawn to Lucy with her awkwardness and intelligence. I believe she might have had maybe some form of Asperger but that just made her more of a unique character. I really loved her bluntness and the fact that she was funny when she wasn't trying to be. I liked when she was describe as Spock from Star Trek (yeah my geek flag went flying) and I felt that was the perfect description. I do feel Lucy might [...]

    26. This was surprisingly good. A little silly but an easy and quick read. I liked the character and absolutely loved the side characters. I found Lucy a little hard to connect with and a little unbelievable - but I just went with it. The writing is solid and easy to enjoy and I loved how there was never a feeling of an info dump or overload as characters and information was flawless interwoven in the story. The adventure and how it all played out was so easy to enjoy - I didn't see all the twists b [...]
