Sunday Book Club – The Chemistry Of Love, Sariah Wilson

Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews.

The month of Valentines can be a bit rubbish but I thought it would be good to use it as a chance to look at a different rom com related book each Sunday of February. Today we going to look at one of the new romance book by the writer Sariah Wilson

The Chemistry Of Love (2023)

Sariah Wilson


How can Anna Ellis, a geeky, brilliant, and hopelessly smitten cosmetic chemist possibly win over Craig Kimball, the man of her dreams—who also happens to be her boss? The answer is Craig’s empathetic (and handsome) CEO half brother, Marco. The makeup mogul knows Craig for the ridiculously competitive rival he is. Whatever Marco has, Craig wants. That can be Anna, if she’s game to play.

All Anna and Marco have to do is pretend they’re falling in love and let the rumors begin. If the experiment in attraction works, a jealous Craig will swoop in and give Anna her happily ever after—if it weren’t for one hitch in the plan. There’s more to Marco than meets the eye. With every fake date, Anna’s feelings are starting to become dizzyingly real.

Blame it on chemistry. It’s unpredictable, exciting, and occasionally combustible. If Anna and Marco are really falling in love, who are they to argue with science?

Positive Points

If you are looking for a book with an obvious outcome from the beginning then this is a book for you. There are some really good sections of the book that are fun to read and make a classic rom com that you will want to keep turning the pages. It has the elements of a show or a television show where there is a lot of factors that make it a good rom com.

Negative Points

Even in 2023, the way that a ‘geek’ is defined in a book, especially about rom com comes across as predictable and also very cliche that at times it can be very boring and predictable. There are many sections of the book that are not needed.

Overall Review

This book is a good rom com and has a lot of good sections of it that are a really good read, however the way that geek and fandom is described can come across as incredibly predictable and boring at times. Out of all Sariah’s books, I am not sure that this is at the top of the list as to what ones you should read first but if you are looking for a read that is enjoyable then give it a try.
