Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

Lucy London is a bona fide genius, having been at university since the ripe old age of thirteen. Unfortunately, Lucy’s genius status means she doesn’t have the best people skills, which is a shame since she’s currently working in the peer counseling clinic in an effort to help students. Imperfect Chemistry is about Lucy’s efforts to learn about two topics that have always mystified her; people and passion. Lucy embarks on a study of passion and lust in an effort to maintain the only life she has ever known. Mary Frame does a fantastic job of showing us just how awkward Lucy is and she does it hilariously. Lucy is honest, straightforward and about to experience her first case of lust and love, and it comes in the form of her neighbor Jensen.

The thing that is so appealing about Imperfect Chemistry is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously, which allows the reader to simply let go and enjoy Lucy in all her awkward glory. Her first real interaction with Jensen was genius and put her lack of people skills on full display, but it was even more appealing because she doesn’t connect enough to feel bad about it until that first encounter is over. Mary Frame has produced the perfect nerd romantic comedy for the New Adult set. There’s almost no angst and plenty of great secondary characters to keep you laughing while watching Lucy get hit by lust and emotions for the first time. This is a great story that was very charming. In the words of Ted, “she is so weird, I think I love her.”

Imperfect Chemistry

Even better than The Rose Project in my humble opinion and I thought that book was great. It is one of the few books that I plan to read again ... it was that enjoyable. Glad to find another author that I enjoy so much.
