It sucks, but Carlos has no choice, and he needs to be free in order to find out who framed him and why. It can be as cliche as Elkeles wishes, she’s still good at voice and character development. It’s not imperative, but I would recommend reading this trilogy in order. This book was just too sweet. At first, I felt that it was off-putting but I got used to it over time and I think it actually added to my experience. Nothing is what it seems and sometimes, you just have to believe in yourself. The ROA bookcover is just perfect, too – that’s an actual scene in the book! Rules of Attraction was a good story that I enjoyed reading but I didn’t think Carlos and Kiara had the crazy chemistry that Alex and Brittany did.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. This chica even has a cool car! Even though he could be a jerk at times, he could also be pretty damn swoony! This heroine, who wears odd clothing combos and has a stutter when she’s nervous, was more likable than Perfect Chemistry’s heroine. I have no idea why Carlos and Kiara did that at all. However, they were the life of the books.

It will for certain be on my favorites list and reading it a second or perhaps a third time is certainly not out of the question. I happily recommend this YA series for adults who enjoy reading YA and want a sexier, grittier read, and for older teens. There are so many similarities to the first book, yet it’s somehow different. Carlos finds and excellent father figure in Professor Westford, a man with his own shady past who has a beautiful family and a great career in academia.

Perfect Chemistry 1 or 2? I do not hold the copyright to any of the images used in this review. And I already have a cutie image of “my Luis”, so bring on Chain Reaction!


I also wish I had a sexy Latina in the next room that walked around in his undies… maybe one day.

Rules of Attraction

Carlos seems like the bad guy on the outside, and he’s made plenty of mistakes to get himself labeled as such, but his bad guy image isn’t his problem. I listened to this one on audiobook and it was pretty hot.

A minor character in the first book now takes center stage – middle brother Carlos Fuentes, being sent back to the United States from Mexico by his mother and uncle to give him a chance to escape a life of crime and gangs.

Her father is really trying to help Carlos turn his life around, but he has to want it. Kiara is strong, intelligent, and knows what she’s doing.

Handsome, confident, muscular Carlos is an instant attraction at his new high school, to everyone except Kiara, daughter of one of Alex’s professors, who’s given the job of guide and mentor as artraction of the school’s “peer outreach program”. If I let myself care about someone, they’ll leave me, push me away, or die.

So this might shock a few people—it surprised me—but Rules of Attraction grabbed my heart and got all of my 5 shiny stars for Kiara. Perfect Rules of Attraction is the companion novel to Perfect Chemistry. I can feel so much sexual tension just by their little pranks, and I love that.

I love this book, it rocked my world, every chapter made me want for more. The simome has it going on! View all comments. I loved this story more than Perfect Chemistry This plot was intense, but not in the dramatic and dangerous ways that Perfect Chemistry was in.

View all 7 comments. Each is a complete story – their connection is that each is the story of a different Fuentes brother – so you really don’t need to read them in order.

I think you can guess my favorite part from the book. Carlos Fuentes, the middle brother, used to idolise his older brother Alex – until Alex got a rich white girlfriend, cut himself free of gang life in Chicago, and got a scholarship to go to university to study science. Carlos is very attracttion to Alex.

This book was everything I hoped it would be and then some. At first, Carlos kind of annoyed me, it felt like he’s too bad eelkeles everyone.

I should start by saying that I was NOT disappointed by this book, and it was a great pleasure to read it.

Now, no one is going to be good enough! Don’t get me wrong, I love romantic attractionn, but just not too much of it. She is smart, funny, strong, determined and caring.

Damn you Latino boys Though at the end of the day, Alex is still my numero uno Fuentes brother, mi corazon. Well, FU, I don’t care what you say.
