She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

The Chemist begins with a strong storyline and promising premise. An ex-agent hiding from government because they wanted to get rid of her. I mean, it’s gonna be a thrilling journey right?

Until the heroine met with her love interest, that promising premise seems like a dream that never come true.

Stephenie Meyer is known for her ability to write addictive romance, like Twilight Saga and The Host. However, The Chemist wasted two half of the book with them hiding from the government in order to build the unnecessary romance between the heroine and her love interest, if anything it felt forced. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but if we took out all the romance aspect of this book, it would have been a great book. Because nothing worse than an unconvincing romance.

I am so disappointed because this book was one of my highly anticipated book to read in 2016.
