Title: Imperfect Chemistry 
Series: Imperfect Chemistry #1
Author: Mary Frame

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?


Imperfect Chemistry begins when Lucy London, resident genius, needs to come up with a study on passion before she loses her grant and all of her dreams end. Lucy hasn't ever really had friends, or any kind of emotional relationship at all. Now, that being said she's has a really good family, but she's always been a little different. Lucy sets out to figure out how to fix her problem. She enlists the help of a girl she met recently, and her next door neighbor who she is attracted to. 

At first the next door neighbor, Jenson, refuses to help her. But after some time these two start to become friends, and he's more willing to help. Along the way Lucy realizes that she has more than just platonic feelings towards him and things start to heat up a little bit. But she doesn't understand how to do relationships, and Jenson isn't sure how to trust anymore. 

This book was truly a breath of fresh air! I was immediately sucked into the story right from the start. And it just got better and better as I continued reading. 
The characters were the other amazing thing about this story. Lucy was an extremely different type of heroine. She's blunt, honest, but not in a rude way. And she's unsure of how to have connections with emotions, but she's willing to learn. And Jenson while being an alpha male in a way, was totally different from most guys you read about now. He was a major breath of fresh air. I adored his character. 

The only downside to the story was not getting more of Jenson and Lucy together. And towards the end it seemed to rush a little bit towards the end. But I still really enjoyed the whole book. It was very good!
