Definite Spoilers for Perfect Chemistry! Proceed with caution!
When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.
I loved Perfect Chemistry, and after reading it I found myself wishing for sequels, so when I heard about this book and that there is going to be another book, I was so excited!
Rules of Attraction was very similar in plot to Perfect Chemistry, gang member boy, gets connected to a white girl, but I really enjoyed the differences in this one, for example I like how Carlos had to live with Kiara, which added a new and different element of conflict to the story. I also loved reading more about Alex and Brittney!
Kiara was more feisty than Brittney which I enjoyed, she was really smart and lovable. I also really loved the epilogue.
This book was really cute and I liked the two different point of views, I cannot wait for the next book.
