Fabulously uplifting, romantic and original. Love and Other Dangerous Chemicals fizzes with humour and great dialogue from characters that are delightfully flawed. In case you can t tell, I loved it. --Jane Costello

I really enjoyed reading this book. I would give it five stars but the Kindle edition has an enormous number of typos, so that there were many pages were I had to pause and work out what on earth the author intended. That's a great pity.
This is far from the usual romantic romp however as an orgasmically challenged arts student and a research scientist end up in a messy affair in the pursuit of love and other dangerous chemicals. After a number of experiments that invariably go wrong, followed by a range of farcical mishaps and misadventures both finally come to a realisation about what it means to fall in love. Contained in this seemingly whimsical novel is a valuable lesson on love. Capella delights by allowing the reader direct access to the characters thoughts as they battle against each other and their incomprehensible emotions.
This is a light but incredibly funny novel, perfect when one is in need of some comic relief and romance in their life.
I found myself resenting having spent money on this. I wonder if it's the same in the printed version? Capella is far too good a writer to be subjected to this kind of amateur publishing practice. Corvus seriously needs to employ some new and experienced editors. I hope an experienced editor at the company will go through this book with care and intelligence and stop other readers having such a negative experience.

Disappointing read. I've read all of Anthony Capella's novels and this is unlike any of the others and pretty much a letdown. ShamePublished 14 months ago by Linzie Aucote
This isn't normally the genre I would choose but its a book club choice. It is a funny and lighthearted love story with a little chemistry thrown in.Published 16 months ago by Inca2011
Brilliant. One of the cleverest and most satisfactory novels I have read in years. Written like a scientific paper it must have taken a long time to research.Published 20 months ago by Mr. G. S. Sawyer
I have read most books by Anthony Capella and enjoyed them all. I just wish he had stayed with his food theme, he really made me feel that I could smell and taste the dishes. Read morePublished on 6 Jun. 2014 by MMC
Very unusual romance - keeps you in suspense wondering if they ever will get together - cleverly written. Great book.Published on 29 April 2014 by Wills
Having read all of his books, this was in my opinion the weakest. It tripped along nicely enough, but unlike others it failed to really absorb me in to the plot. Read morePublished on 27 April 2014 by mrs loraine ohagan
