When it comes to sexy geeks, Leo Martinez and Devlin Hawke are as hot as they get. But falling for the wrong guy has always been Sidney Chase’s forte. She’s not about to submit to her inner bad girl by giving in to her secret fantasies about her sex-on-a-stick bosses. When she’s accidentally exposed to the supercharged aphrodisiac in their lab, Sidney tosses aside her inhibitions and unknowingly provides her bosses with an eye-popping display of self lovin’ courtesy of the office security cameras.

Despite their mutual craving for Sidney, Leo and Devlin made a pact long ago to keep her off limits. The last thing they’d wanted was to scare off their best PA by overwhelming her with their kinky tendencies. Witnessing the arousing effects of their aphrodisiac elixir on Sidney changes everything. Not only is she the answer they’ve been looking for in regards to fine-tuning their formula, she’s the perfect woman for them. And with a little help from one helluva sinful science experiment, they’ll prove that love is far more potent than anything manufactured in a bottle.

Two bosses, who are super smart and sexy males, are making an elixir that heightens sexual arousal. That premise caught my attention immediately.

By accident their secretary, Sidney, gets doused with the potion and little does she know but, she’s on camera when it happens. Interestingly enough, her bosses happen to have a thing for Sidney, but have worked hard at keeping her at arms length… mostly. When Leo and Devlin approach her about her snooping and then offer her a job as their next test subject, secret passions, internal conflicts and workplace issues get thrown into the mix. It was a very entertaining concept.

In today’s heightened “sexual harassment” environment, this is certainly a “suspend your disbelief” type of story. Even though it’s just “work”, Sidney is all too eager to accept their terms even knowing what will be required of her (she helped put the other data in from the other test subjects), but will she be able to keep her excitement low key and then after the experiment be able to go back to work as if nothing happened? Talk about internal crisis! And one thing that bothered me was that a particularly important element to the story, the elixir, was mentioned at first, but the author never followed through with it and this dampened my enjoyment of the story. It’s a good thing the chemistry between the characters was so sizzling.

The book looks to not be part of a series and is an easy read. The story is short so it was good to see that it wasn’t overloaded with unnecessary details to distract this reader and the story moved along well. The characters were good, and while it might have helped if they had been filled out a bit more, all of them were likable.

I enjoyed Perfect Chemistry; it was fun. It wasn’t show stopping but it certainly was entertaining and I had a good time reading it.
