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.
The moment I saw Rules of Attraction, the second book in the Perfect Chemistry series, I got super giddy. You know that saying? The one that states that sequels are never as good as the first book, well that saying doesn't apply to Rules of Attraction. This book was so good, you could tell Simone owned the story-telling in this second installment to the series.
Carlos was hilarious, and I loved his cockiness that would get him into heaps of trouble. Kiara was really cool, she was down-to-earth, not into social cliques and appearances like a majority of the rest of the student body at her high school, and she was always willing to go head to head with Carlos. I loved their relationship, it was challenging, raw, funny, quirky, and down right cute.
The Perfect Chemistry series isn't exactly an on-going series, meaning that it isn't necessary to read them in order because each book revolves around the love story of each Fuentes brother. I honestly like Rules of Attraction way better than the first book, though Perfect Chemistry was pretty good. I enjoyed bieng able to see continuing bits and pieces of Brittany and Alex's relationship woven in and out of the story, keeping them alive
I'm stoked to read the next installment to the Perfect Chemistry series, Chemical Reaction, to read about Luis's love. If you can say anything about the Fuentes brothers it would be that they've got spunk and they know it.
HAPPY READING EVERYONE! :)
