Publisher's Summary

Lucy London puts the word genius to shame. Having obtained her PhD in microbiology by the age of 20, she's amassed a wealth of knowledge, but one subject still eludes her - people. The pendulum of passions experienced by those around her confuses and intrigues her, so when she's offered a grant to study emotion as a pathogen, she jumps on the opportunity.
Enter Jensen Walker, Lucy's neighbor and the one person she finds appealing. Jensen's life is the stuff of campus legend: messy, emotional, and complicated. Basically, 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?

The perfect kind of love story

I loved this book. The characters were great, the sex tasteful, and just the right amount of humor at the right time. It's clear the author knows a bit about the mind and what makes us click. The story flows well and to my relief, did not have the tiresome cat and mouse chase you find in some romance novels.

Lucy is young, clueless in ways of the heart, and clinical in every way. She's also twenty years old with a PhD. When Lucy gives the wrong advice, well maybe not wrong-at least clinically- but wrong according to human feelings - she is asked to step down from her research in which she's running on a grant, and learn a little about the human heart and relationships.

So of course, the first person Lucy encounters is her handsome next door neighbor - Jensen, a man she and her new best friends think is setting her sights a little high. Determined to win him, Lucy starts with the usual stunts to meet him... borrowing sugar fails, as does inviting him to a party. Fate intervenes, however, and they end up spending a perfectly wonderful weekend together.

My favorite part in the story is the comical interaction between Lucy and her brothers, which reminds me of my siblings and me, and I don't have a least favorite because I liked it all.

Unique Opposites Attract Love Story!

Imperfect Chemistry was a great title for this book! The characters were unique, especially Lucy, she's socially awkward, extremely intelligent, analytical and viewed everything with a clinical eye. When she has to write a thesis that involves a connection to love, she knows she's going need to get a better understanding of these emotions in order to write about them. She convinces her hot neighbor Jensen to help learn more about these emotions and the male/female interrelationships. Listening to Lucy's interaction with the other characters was really funny at times, and the relationship between Lucy and Jenson was well developed and not rushed, which I truly appreciated.

A fun, quirky, captivating listen, with unique H/h characters! I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an honest review.
