Advanced Physical Chemistry: A Romantic Comedy
Susannah Nix, author
After a string of lousy boyfriends, chemical engineer Penny Popplestone swears off men until she can figure out why they keep cheating on her. But her no-men resolution hits a snag when the mysterious and superhumanly hot barista at her favorite coffee shop strikes up a friendship with her. Penny strives to keep things platonic, but when Caleb gives her the kiss of her life, she realizes he wants to be more than just friends. Tired of always being “good little Penny,” she throws caution to the wind and pursues a no-strings fling with the hottie barista. It’s not like they have anything in common beyond scorching physical chemistry, so what does she have to lose? Her heart, it turns out. Now, this fanfic-reading, plus-size heroine faces an unsolvable problem. What do you do when being apart is unbearable…but being together is impossible?
Reviews
Nix (Rising Star) offers a sweet and often hilarious tale of a heartbroken heroine who makes an impressive rebound. Plus-sized scientist and fan fiction enthusiast Penny Popplestone is at a knitting group meeting in a café when her boyfriend, Kenneth, saunters in with another woman. It’s bad enough that she’s being cheated on, but she’s also mortified that the hottest barista in the shop is witnessing it. Turns out Hottie Barista, aka Caleb Mayhew, a soon-to-be medical student, has had his eye on Penny for a while. Knowing Caleb will soon leave town for school, Penny, who has dealt with a long string of terrible boyfriends, sets out to have her first no-strings-attached affair. Nix’s pacing is pitch-perfect, and a cast of endearing secondary characters, particularly Penny’s supportive friend Olivia, add depth and appeal. Penny is a refreshing heroine with a messy personal life, but an inspiring career. Readers will eagerly devour Nix’s smart and sexy story. (Self-published)
