Format: Hardcover | Pages: 324 | Release Date: April 2010 | Publisher: Walker Publishing Company

"Rules of Attraction" [Perfect Chemistry Novel, Book 2] by Simone Elkeles

My Book Summary : After his older brother, Alex, got himself shot and kicked out of his gang Carlos, his mother, and younger brother moved back to Mexico. Now two years later Carlos is being sent from Mexico to Colorado to live with his older brother (who he hasn't seen in two years), as his family hopes will straighten him out and get him away from the gang he joined while living in Mexico. After he lands in the USA and sees his brother he soon realizes that Alex has changed and has turned more into a straight and narrow type of person then Carlos ever wanted to see, as he grew up idolizing his brother (with the gang label and all). However, even though Carlos considers himself a rebel he isn't the one who involves himself into the local gangs once he's back, instead one of the higher-ups in the local gang sets him up with the law. Which he is told that where his brother is living, he isn't allowed to stay, so Alex makes arrangements for Carlos to live with a professor's family that he knows will help out. Much to Carlos' secret intrigue it just happens to be Kiara's home too, a girl who is a miss good-two-shoes, who is unique all on her own, and even though she isn't the prettiest girl in school or the most popular Carlos can't stop thinking about her.

However, just when his life seems to be going good, the gang who set him up contacts him, tells him he's going to be joining their gang and basically threatens him and those he cares about if he doesn't go along with what they tell him. Will he change his life -- be like Alex -- and step away from that kind of life, will he go along with their demands just to make sure those he loves will be okay, or will he take option number three and just run away thinking that if he’s gone then everyone else will be better off?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! Perfect chemistry is a fact with this book!! The characters were great! I loved that this story didn't just develop Carlos' character but also the characters and relationship of Alex and Brittany! PLUS --- Kiara was a great addition to the romance .... a complete 180ยบ from how Brittany was originally portrayed in the first book!!

Basically if you liked the first book, then you should definitely check this one out!

Book Teaser(s) :
Maybe if I annoy her enough she'll want to pack up and leave.
But after five minutes I can tell my strategy isn't workin'.
Time to change tactics. "Want to make out?"
"With who?" she asks, not bothering to look up.
"Me."
She lifts her head from her book just long enough to give me a once-over. "No, thanks," she says, then goes back to her homework.
She's fuckin' with me.
She's got to be fuckin' with me, right? "Because of that pendejo Tuck?"
"No. Because I don't want Madison's leftovers."
Wait. Un. Momento. I've been called a lot of things before, but . . . ~ within Chapter 25
