  • Before I read the bookAnyone else agree that after this she should write a third book about the youngest Fuentes, Luis Yay, she is writing another book about Luis Review Time I like to give pointers on how I like my reviews to be read in brackets, feel free to ignore my suggestions Aaahhh, my Fuentes boys, could you be any perfect Yes, I am referencing Chandler Perhaps it is a little bit formulaic, but, its a very nice formula, isn t it channelling Salad fingers here, aaahhh, rusty spoons As you [...]


  • Rules of Attraction is the companion novel to Perfect Chemistry The main characters in Perefect Chemestry are Alex and Brittany, the main characters in Rules of Attratction are Carlos Alex s little brother and Kiara That being said, you don t necessarily have to read Perfect Chemistry first I loved Perfect Chemistry, there is something about it that is so very addictive, so when I heard that Elkeles was writing another novel about Alex s little brother, I knew I was in for a treat Perfect Chemis [...]


  • This book has a lot of similarities to the first in the series, Perfect Chemistry at the beginning, it felt like the only difference was that Kiara had a stutter After finishing it, I still feel it was substantially similar in characters and plot but I don t give a crap I still really liked it In other news, I know some people are fans of the cover art in this series but I think it is pretty mortifying After Perfect Chemistry s cover, where Alex and Brittney are laying on each other in the cover [...]


  • I loved Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles, so when I heard about this sequel needless to say, I picked it up as soon as it hit the stands I was not disappointed NOTT Rules of Attraction is funny, romantic, edgy and unforgettable I loved the dialog, pranks and slapstick funny scenes throughout the novel, but most of all, I loved the sincere moments between bad boy Carlos and goodie two shoes Kiara It s a page turner that will leave you sad at the end, but only because you ve finished the book s [...]

  • If you haven t read Perfect Chemistry by Ms Elkeles there may be spoilers ahead Want to get in trouble with me, Carlos Initial Final Page Thoughts.OK, so I have to admit I originally picked this book up with every intention of laughing at it as opposed to with it But Ms Elkeles definitely got the last laugh because this book and I had a whale of a time together and I m thinking of proposing soon Also Some Things I Will Never Understand.Why some girls and some boys where leggings as pants How the [...]


  • 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 So the romance wasn t as satisfying and electric Carlos was also not as sympathetic a character as Alex because I felt like Alex only did bad things because he had no other choice while Carlos acted like a punk just because he wanted to But overall the story was a good read that I enjoyed a lot.We got to see of Alex and Brittany as they are both in c [...]


  • I am not in love with Carlos Fuentes I do not want him I don t think about him all the time Just kidding.Even though I do feel the same way about Carlos, I m not going to mention it I m going to try to control myself this timeY.Miss Simone Elkeles is officially one of my favorite authors now I love her damn work I love her characters I want to meet her so badly That woman knows what she s talking about I finished this whole book in one day All 324 pages of it I eat it all up, and thoroughly enjo [...]

  • I haven t read a single book by this author that didn t make my stomach do flip flops every few chapters Can somebody please explain to me how this is possible I don t do sappy romances Don t get me wrong, I love romantic stuff, but just not too much of it It s hard to explain, but there is a fine line between OMG WOW and OMG EW I m hard to please, yes, what s your point Simone Elkeles I can never read that name without hearing that ridiculous rap video of Perfect Chemistry in my head only write [...]


  • Bulgarian review bookishipster.wordpress 2The second book in the Perfect Chemistry trilogy was just as lovely as the first one Even though Carlos was a bit annoying at first and a little bit different than his brother, i still enjoyed Rules of Attraction very much I liked Carlos and Kiara s relationship, they had some really cute moments and i loved the family atmosphere in this book It was nothing special, but still really cute and lovely.


  • 4 5 stars Look at me, chica When she does, I repeat, Eres hermosa What does it mean You re beautiful Aww This book was just too sweet Angsty teens, a school mean girl, the gay best friend, first loves and the perfect homecoming this book epitomises everything I enjoy about YA romance It s been so long since I read Perfect Chemisty no, really, it s been like two or three years and I ve only now finished the second book Rules of Attraction follows Carlos, Alex s brother, in his very rebellious yet [...]


  • AHHH This sounds even better than the first book YES Carlos, you smexy pie, come here, LET ME LOVE YOUUUUUUU I can t believe I just said that God, he s such a hottie stud muffin.Okay, I m clearly still in fangirl mode, so I ll come back later 3




  • You re dangerous he says Why Because you make me believe in the impossible Sometimes I wish I would have started by reading this book before Perfect chemistry because I am sure I would have liked this one a lot better and indeed this book is great I must confess that I felt in love with Perfect Chemistry and now it s so damn hard not to compare them, but I ll give it a try.I should start by saying that I was NOT disappointed by this book, and it was a great pleasure to read it If you just keep i [...]


  • Everyone knows by now how much I adore my book boyfriends I fall, swoon, and crush often and hard Let s see there was Thomas, Griggs, Shawn, Josh, Conrad, Dimitri, Alex.well you see where this is going Giggle, giggle 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.Finally a main female character in a romance I could identify with, be proud of, root for, and want as my new bff This girl kicked ass A character that [...]


  • 4.5 Stars If I let myself care about someone, they ll leave me, push me away, or die That t the way it s been, and will always be.Carlos Fuentes moves to Colorado to live with his brother Alex for his senior year of high school He has been living in Mexico the last few years with his mama and little brother, but he got into a bit of trouble so here he is And just so we re clear, Carlos does not want to be here Carlos is the typical badass teenager He likes to party, hook up and have fun He start [...]


  • ANOTHER AMAZING BOOK FROM SIMONE ELKELES I found another book boyfriend, definitely swoon worthy Carlos, you got me breaking the rules LOL I m in love again And I m wondering if it s okay to have two brothers for myself LOL I love Alex from Perfect Chemistry, and I admit it took me a long time to read the sequel because I m too in love with him I didn t expect that they ll have the same effect on me Can I marry both and take them home LOL I love this book, it rocked my world, every chapter made [...]


  • 4.25 What happens when I break one of your fuckin rules starsIt s been a long time since I ve last read Perfect chemistry by Simone Elkeles, book one in Perfect chemistry series, where we first meet the Fuentes brothers Alejandro, Carlos and Luis, but basically the story in book 1 revolves around the oldest brother Alejandro Alex Fuentes.But now, Carlos is getting his own story And even though there s a certain pattern in the storyline, and one almost identical scene as it was in the previous bo [...]


  • Ooohhh Simone Elkeles posted 3 excerpts here perfectchemistrythebook roOnly 4 days until release I have a massive library fine now why Because I m being selfish and don t want to give this one up After reading , I was excited about the change to a trilogy, but doubtful that one of my favorite YAs could be topped I was pleased to be wrong to echo a few friends who read this with me, Rules of Attraction was in a league of its own This heroine, who wears odd clothing combos and has a stutter when s [...]


  • I think I enjoyed this than the first book Carlos is way trouble than Alex was You could tell Alex had a heart of gold from the very beginning and his bad attitude was all an act Carlos was a good guy too, but his bad attitude was real and I think it made him really interesting and made his turnaround a bigger deal I also really enjoyed Kiara She was not a typical girl at all and the last person you would expect to fall for Carlos.


  • I absolutely loved the first book, Perfect Chemistry, and was eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next one 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.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 There s no way Carlos would eve [...]


  • I.Loved.This.Book I.LoveL.Simone.Elkeles.Books Perfect That s my one word to describe this masterpiece I loved the Perfect Chemistry and even though this was a book companion to the first and I m usually fussy about that, it just never occurred to me to mind This book was everything I hoped it would be and then some It was perfect In Rules of Attraction we meet Carlos Fuentes, Alex s seventeen year old brother, who was shipped to Colorado to live with him But Carlos lands with a big chip on his [...]


  • This book was a great installment of the Perfect Chemistry series There are so many similarities to the first book, yet it s somehow different Very enjoyable, sweet love story.In Perfect Chemistry, Elkeles tried to start the story with the two characters, Brittany and Alex, not getting along That was okay, but it was just so obvious he was going to fall for the pretty cheerleader, and she would give in to the cute bad boy With this story even though you pretty much know the two characters would [...]


  • Absolutely AMAZING I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning because I couldn t put the book down, I had to know how it ended I am in love with the Fuentes brothers and can t wait to read the third book of this series Simone did an amazing job I was quite skeptical about reading this book at first because I didn t know how Rules of Attraction could measure up to Perfect Chemistry well it exceeded my expectations I think I prefer Carlos to Alex Carlos character was amazing, his whit and attitud [...]


  • YES I m finished Review to come OKAY, I think I have waited long enough to write this review So let s get down to biz shall we Upon reading this book, I wasn t sure if I wanted to After reading Perfect Chemistry, I was convinced I wouldn t like the other books or other brothers near as much as I loved Alex Fuentes I was obsessed with the sexy mexy But friends kept telling me I would love this one as much as SO, I decided what the Hell I will give it a shot WOOOOOOOOOOW I was so surprised by how [...]
