I am really confused by the 4 and 5 star reviews some gave this book because it was really painful for me to finish. 50 pages in I was going to stop reading it, but I figured I paid for it so i may as well read the whole thing. Todd and Emily had absolutely zero chemistry, i'm really not sure how they came up with the title of this book. The love scenes were over before they started, dull, and boring. The whole excuse of Todd saying their coming together was a mistake, him leaving Emily abruptly ...more

This book actually made me want to bust in tears. He has loved her since the wedding he went to and then seeing her naked in the shower and I'm laughing when she called the police on him. I can understand where the guy was coming from I mean he didnt just hit it and quit it he said he was sorry for the way he treated her and he wanted to treat her the way she was suppose to be. She fell in love with him finally and got pregnant. Todd said I think we made A BABY. THEY DID!

Really enjoyable read. Todd and Emily is a cute couple I'm glad they worked it out and Todd got it together because Emily passed on Jarad (Poetry Man).

Chemistry of Desire by Melanie Schuster is the story of two doctors who by fate meet up at a Hilton Head cottage and instantly find themselves in a love affair so strong, running away seems like the logical choice.

Emily, feeling undeserving of Todd's affection wants to forget that she ever let him into her heart, and if s ...more

From the start of the book with Emily and Tod's by chance meeting in Hilton Head, South Carolina to the end I was totally swept away by the storyline. This is a perfect example of how romance should be portrayed in writing.

I completely loved the story of Emily and Todd. I loved how they fell in love. I recommend this book to everyone who loves romance novels.

This was a cute story of ugly duckling turned swan. Thumbs up for all the nerds that are actually gorgeous stunning people!

I loved this book about Emily and Todd's love affair. All is fair I. Love and war and this couple definitely had both. What I loved most about love stories is the honesty and trust that true love details. An excellent love story that precedes "Poetry Man" another must read by Melanie Schuster.

This is my first book I've ever read from Melanie Schuster. I was not disapointed I love the story and enjoyed it from start to finish. I loved the comedy, romance and drama. Melaine is an excellent writer. I look forward in reading more from her.

Every time Todd speaks he puts hid foot in his mouth. What will it take for him to get Emily to understand what he is really saying.
