Science major Brad Jergens notices Jordy Fleming at school and at the grocery store where he works, but with the heat Jordy’s boyfriend emits, Brad doesn’t think he stands a chance. When Brad’s parents drag him along on a cruise, he and Jordy literally crash into each other, and the chemistry between them sends sparks flying. Unfortunately, as the weeklong cruise nears an end too quickly, Brad’s left to wonder if their mutual attraction will dissipate on a Caribbean breeze as soon as they return to dry land.
Electrochemistry is the third book in the Chemistry series by Andrew Grey. As with most of Grey’s series, you don’t actually have to read the series in order to enjoy each title. In this case the link is that at least one character has a love of chemistry, and they attend Dickinson college in Carlisle, PA. (Yes, the same Carlisle from the Of Love series… Actually, a few of those eateries show up in the Chemistry series, but again those are little Easter eggs for those who have read the Of Love series. It is not required to enjoy the Electrochemistry series.
This title has a much different feel for me than Organic Chemistry or BioChemistry. Part of that may be because I read instead of listened to it, but the tone is a lot lighter as well. It is a perfect beach read. There was no coming out. No “what will they think?” No “I am going to lose all my friends and family.” It is two guys from the same small college who travel thousands of miles only to hook up while on a cruise ship in the middle of the Carribean. A little out of the realm of likelihood? Sure, but this is fiction. It makes for a fun time.
Brad and Jordy are both very sweet and a little reserved. Well, Brad is reserved. Jordy is a little more open and forward. Pair them with Brad’s best friend Helen, and we have an enjoyable time watching these two lust after each other, and more. Neither character is terribly deep. Neither character has to overcome severe horrors in their past. They are just two normal college students hooking up and looking for the possibility of more.
I know there are going to be a few people that will take issue with a theme in this book. All I ask is that you give it a chance to the end. It will be worth it. If you want a sweet, easy beach read, check out Electrochemistry.
I would like to thank the author for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
