Imperfect Chemistry

This was exactly what I was in the mood for when I discovered it – a cute romantic comedy featuring likeable characters and an easy-to-follow plot.

Lucy, the main character, is basically a female version of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, except I pictured her to look and sound like Amy Farrah Fowler.

Lucy has never been in love and wants to study emotions as a pathogen. Enter her good looking, newly heartbroken neighbour and watch the hilarity unfold.

There wasn’t anything ground-breaking in this story. Everything happened exactly as I expected, complete with zany sidekick friends and overbearing parents. But it was written well and I could easily pretend I was watching a movie.

My only qualms were the repetition of the phrase he scrubbed his hand through his hair and the word coursed (as in through someone’s veins). I also felt the ‘betrayal’ at the three-quarter mark was a bit weak.

It’s actually a great piece to analyse if you’re trying to figure out how write your own romantic comedy because the turning points were so obvious (and I mean that in the best possible way).

Overall, it was a fun, quick read and I’m thinking I will look up the next two books in the series.

Recommended for romantic comedy fans.
