CHEMICAL ATTRACTION (The Chemical Attraction Series Book #3) by Christina Thompson is the third romantic suspense in this engaging series. In this story it is Joe’s turn to feel the chemical attraction. The suspense story can be read as a standalone, but there is a lot of character crossover between the books in this series. I suggest you read or listen to them all in order. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Madeline Pierce is a sci

So Sweet of a Romance...that it is making me cry

A huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book

This book took me completely by surprise. I kind of expected it to be a good thriller but never in my right mind had thought that the book would sweep me off my feet with its romance and humor.

Yes it is a thriller basically. An investigative thriller to be precise but now that I have finished reading the book, nothing is staying in my mind as vividly as the romantic chapters o

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 4 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

I have to say that this was a fantastic criminal suspense with romance as an added flavor on side. This was a contemporary novel loaded down with all the good stuff that would keep you turning pages. I really want to see more of some of the characters that helped out with Madeline and Joe. These two as main characters had me all over this book. I could not put this down. It was dram

I jumped at the chance to review Chemical Attraction as I really enjoyed Cat’s Trucker, another Thompson novel. I’m one of those crazy readers that once I find an author I like I rush out to buy and read everything the author has ever written. I was definitely not disappointed with Chemical Attraction.

The novel is well-written and has a good, believable story. The fact that Thompson has a degree in biology only makes the story that much more believable – and scary. At first, I found the novel a

Chemical Attraction’s genre is something I don’t get to read very often – or not at all. But I am very glad I did.

Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect when I agreed to do a review of this book, because I have yet to set a “standard” for this genre. Let’s just say that I found my “reading journey” of this book…very interesting.

Note: If you get squeamish when reading graphic deaths, or against animal cruelty and death, then this book may not be for you. (Or you can just skip those parts so you c

Chemical Attraction is a romantic thriller with a very original plot, great characters, a medical mystery, some sci-fi elements and plot twists! I enjoyed everything about it - only asterisk is that (in my opinion) the cover (while really beautiful) does not fit the suspenseful FBI thriller. There is romance, but it is the mysterious events and entertaining characters that make this book shine!

Thompson writes characters that a reader wants to know. The good guys are affable and fun. We get them on down time singing karaoke, eating and having beer and eating. Instead of wishing that Thompson would rush the action, those moments are fun with friends. Thompson very cleverly gives everyone a back story, no matter how brief. In one scene we have a grandmother with her grandson at an animal auction. Thompson tells us that her husband died in a flu epidemic but she is ready to move on and ha ...more

Narrator does a good job. His voice fits the tone of the story. The author does switch POV’s a lot within the same chapter, so a little more voice variation between the characters would’ve been good; all the men sounded similar and same with the women. Still a good listening experience.

I really enjoyed the whole premise for this book. There’s lots of secrets going on; weird and dangerous things that keep the story entertaining the whole way through. Madeline works as a scientist for a company sh

Madeline notices things being ordered and never delivered. Upon calling other departments in her lab, she discovers they have the same issue as she does. She calls the FBI to get an investigation going. Meanwhile, strange things are occurring around the town. To keep anybody from discovering the investigation, Madeline pretends to date the FBI agent who's assigned to the task.

Madeline Pierce’s only option is to contact the FBI when she notices mysterious items on shipping invoices. As she begins to question those at her lab, she’s told it was a billing mistake, but she knows something isn’t right. Most of the items can be used for making meth and she knows a large quality of supplies can be a dangerous combination. Nervous, but determined, she meets with FBI agent, Joe Roberts. Joe and Madeline establish a ruse to get him access to her laboratory; the two begin to po ...more

I really like the cover and, I admit, it was one of the reasons (honestly now, who doesn’t do this when the book and/or author are unknown to him?) I chose to read the book and, after I did it, I can say it fits, but not at a superficial level. So do not be misled by its dreamy atmosphere... the only link that the story has with the sleep is that the sleep of reason can produces monsters. And the monsters from Chemical Attraction are some real ones... so real as human nature or Blood Brain Barri ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.

The first chapter of Chemical Attraction was overwhelming for me with a lot of character names to remember and the things that distinguish them from one another. I worried I wasn't going to remember all of them and how they're related or know each other, but as the story progressed, I needn't have worried. The main characters soon stood out from the rest.

Thompson has a natural writing style that somehow adds to the intensity of the story. She doesn’t employ any gimmicks other than good, old-fashioned storytelling in a modern light. She lays out her scenes in a very vivid and visual manner, allowing her audience to immerse themselves in the beauty of the scenes while being caught up in the suspense of the story. Thompson masterfully keeps her audience on their toes, taking them on twists and turns that you’d never imagine while keeping them fully ...more

I'd actually give this a 3.5

Dr. Madeline Pierce fears there is something horrible going on in the company where she works. She thinks there is a huge meth operation and distribution, so she calls the FBI. They send Agent Joe Roberts. There are so many things going on in her little town, animal attacks, testing outside the laboratory, murders, and to top it off Madeline is instantly attracted to Joe and they must play boyfriend/girlfriend to find out the answer they are looking for.

This started out with a bang then got a bit slow for me and then just sucked me in!

I'll admit that I had trouble at first getting into it. It started out with some action but then got a bit slow with all the character introductions. It was also kind of confusing at first since it switched points of view a lot but once I got past all of that the story really picked up. It was necessary for it though to build up the back story.

I am a big fan of Romantic Suspense novels especially when they involve a hero that is not only hot but smart and a heroine that can more than keep up with said hero. “Chemical Attraction” fits the bill. This is the first book in Christina Thompson’s Chemical Attraction series. If you are or were a fan of the X-Files, you will definitely love this book. The big difference between the popular series and this book is that Mulder and Scully actually do get together. And Mulder is WAY hotter.

Wow what a book. It has everything that a person could want in it. Action, intrigue, murder, and romance can all be found in this amazing story. What I liked about this story is that it shows what can happen when science runs amok. Things that should be used for earth shattering medical breakthroughs are instead corrupted into a weapon in this story.

If you’re looking for a thrilling read with suspense and a touch of romance, Chemical Attraction fits the bill. There’s a fairly large ensemble cast in this story which I found refreshing. I became attached to several of the characters as the suspense unfolded. The medical mystery at the heart of the story is an intriguing one and the author did a great job of parlaying it out in bits and pieces, making for an exciting read. Christina Thompson packs a lot into this novel, especially with the cas ...more

This book kept me guessing the whole way through. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen the book took a different turn. This kept me turning pages till the very end. I will admit during the first 2 chapters of this book I was slightly confused as to what was going on and where the storyline was going, but then it comes together.

Chemical Attraction has a healthy balance of lust, romance, action, and suspense. I enjoyed the depth of the characters and how the author tied them all together, both in background and plot. I always appreciate when authors spotlight female characters who are smart, strong, and hold their own in the book. I think Thompson did just that with a few of her characters, such as Eve Connor and Dr. Madeline Pierce.

I also appreciate how the plot isn't solely focused on one mystery, but a blend of multi

This book had my inner romantic and my inner geek happy.

Ms. Thompson did an excellent job of dropping the details throughout the story to really give it layers of depth. We got little nuggets on each of the characters, making them all 3-dimensional. There were more nuggets into the plot, which was crazy, insane and could sooooo totally happen all at the same time. And my inner geek was taking notes and having a field day with the science in the story. It's totally written in a way that anyone sh
