The campus of Arizona State University has been plagued by a series of practical jokes that have turned malicious. A normally quiet morning on campus of is rocked awake by an explosion in the Science Building. Hannah Shaughnessy a feisty Irish/Italian coed is at the center of the excitement. A Bio-Chemistry major, she is more than aware how lucky she is to walk away after the smoke clears. Her luck in the romance department however, is all bad. After being friend zoned by the man she's loved for over three years, Hannah tries to move on to someone new.
Eric Waters is looking forward to a great year. If only he could find someone to date. He thought his status as a baseball player would enhance his image. Unfortunately his love life is trashing his game. When he turns to his best friend Hannah for consolation she isn't there for him.
When Hannah is harassed by a stalker and her life is threatened will Eric step up to the plate or will Hannah be forced to run for home.
My Review: 5 Stars
Hannah has been in love with her best friend for over three years. But no matter what she does, Eric doesn't see her as more than a friend. With the help of her best friend, Courtney, she decides that it's time to try and move on. But when she starts showing Trent some attention, Eric starts to notice. He doesn't like nor trust the guy. He will do whatever it takes to keep the two of them apart.
Eric doesn't understand why he's so against Hannah and Trent. All he knows is that she's too good for him. With the help of his roommate, Jarrett, he starts to understand that his feelings for Hannah go further than friendship. But how can he prove to Hannah that his feelings are real? And can he do it before it's too late?
While Hannah and Eric start taking the steps to move their relationship to the next level, they have to deal with the campus prankster as well as Hannah's stalker. Are they ever going to catch a break? Can they catch who's after Hannah before it's too late? And will they ever get their happily ever after?
I am really enjoying The Mended Hearts Collection, Explosive Chemistry is the best book in the series so far. I am looking forward to the other books in this series. If I had any complaints it would be that there are some repetitive scenes and inconsistencies. Also, Trent is a creeper! I cannot stand him! The ending with him in it is just not believable to me.
Sharon Landis keeps getting better and better with each book she publishes. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next! :)
And I can't forget my casting! What do you think?!
