ever claimed that I have interviewed Simone Elkeles The above dialogue is intended as humorous fictionSimone Elkeles did not actually say any of the above to mynowledge oOAlthough I bet she wishes she had thought up YOUNG ADULT SIMANCE herself ayRegards Elle EDIT The lunacy 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 Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery 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 art I saw this one and thought thank goodness I am not living with my Boston roommates any they made fun of me for reading the other one and this one is even ridiculous Did you see the cover for the third book in the series Chain Reaction THEY ARE SHOWERING TOGETHER I would never read that book on the T public transportation Buuuuut that brings me to something elseThe sexiness Whoa mama I listened to this one on audiobook and it was pretty hot I enjoyed the romance aspects of this book than most of the romances I read What s that you say That sind of gross since I m 27 Well FU I don t care what you say Also Carlos sounds hot Alex was hot too It stands to reason that Luis will be hot too If there is a shower scene in book three I am totally there Oh wait I was there anywaySpeaking about sounding hot it was pretty interesting to hear the shifting first person narration in this novel I ve never encountered this in an audiobook before when Carlos is narrating a Mexican well I didn t look him up maybe the voice actor just does an amazing accent man narrates and every character sounds like they would from Carlos point of view so Brittney the professor Tuck and Brandon all have uasi Mexican accents And when Brittney narrates the female voice actor impersonates Carlos and Alex s voices 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 I loved Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles so when I heard about this seuel needless to say I picked it up as soon as it hit the stands I was not disappointed NOTONEBIT 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 moments between bad boy Carlos and goodie two shoes Kiara s a page turner that will leave you sad at the end but only because you ve finished the book so uickly In Rules of Attraction we meet Alex s hot headed and rebellious younger brother Carlos He arrives in Colorado to live with his brother but immediately lands himself in trouble with the law after a school drug bust where he was clearly framed Carlos meets Kiara who is so opposite of anyone he ever imagined falling for and through a series of circumstances finds himself living with her family because of the good graces of her father who wants to give Carlos the second chance he feels he deserves This begins Carlos and Kiara s rollercoaster of a ride with its fair share of ups and downsThis was such a great seuel to Perfect Chemistry and I loved revisiting two of my fave characters Alex and Britt But most of all what a great cover to the book I loved it because it captured one of the most endearing moments in the story between the two main characters Oh AND great title as it serves to remind us there are no rules of attraction it just happens naturally Awesome read that I recommend without hesitation 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 suggestionsAaahhh 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 can see above I am really looking forward to Chain Reaction awesome name and this time it will be Luis reforming a bad girl nice huh I really loved how Alex and Brittany were in this best couple ever but I also thought the relationship between the brothers was amazing Unlike Alex Carlos wants to be a tough
gang member just like Alex was but misses the point that Alex did it to protect him and member just like Alex was but misses the point that Alex did it to protect him and He gets to discover what he really wants though and it is very very sweet emphasis on the very s please too lazy for italics Epilogue is well EPIC less cheesy than the first book My only problem is that this one isn t uite as funny as the first ah well can t have it every wa. Iara und Carlos magisch an – und riskieren damit mehr als sie je geglaubt hätten Denn selbst wenn Carlos Kiara zuliebe sein ganzes bisheriges Leben über den Haufen wirft – in seiner ehemaligen Gang gibt es Leute die das unter einen Umständen zulassen woll.
I am not in love with Carlos Fuentes I do not want him I don t think about him all the time Just iddingEven 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 timeTRYMiss 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 Womens Political Activism in Palestine 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 enjoyed it Why are her books so damn good I ll tell you why Sit down folks Sit down1 I don t care how cliche her stories are I don t care how one can predict wha 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 ThoughtsOK so I have to admit I originally picked this book up with every 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 Inew I was in for a treat Perfect Chemistry is still my favorite but Rules of Attraction was also fantasticI m a complete sap for the bad ass guy with the good heart I don t Alien Commanders Bride (Draconians, know what it is but ay dios mio I can t get enough And Carlos definitelynew how to play the bad ass guy cardBoth Carlos and Kiara are complex characters Kiara might seem like the easier of the two to figure out but she definitely has some hidden depths 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 His problem is his pride I loved getting to see that change throughout the novelI didn t think the relationship between Carlos and Kiara flowed as nicely as it had with Alex and Brittany in PC It seemed a little abrupt and rushed I never felt like I witnessed that falling in love moment I was a little disappointed on that front but nonetheless I still reveled in seeing these two get togetherThe ending might have came a little too fast and it was just a little unbelievable not to mention there was another cheesy prologue that I just ATE UP I do love the cheese but it just makes you feel all warm and tingly inside And darn it sometimes I just want to feel warm and tinglyOverall Rules of Attraction was wonderfully written with intriguing characters and a captivating love story I m ready for book three please Damn you Latino boys hot tattooed sweet talking Latino boys Now no one is going to be good enough 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 lotWe got to see of Alex and Brittany as they are both in college They hit a rough patch in their relationship when Alex doesn t want to meet with her parents because he is afraid she will realize she can do better than him but they work things out when she convinces Alex that she wants to be with him no matter when anyone thinks and she refuses to hide

Ged and makes me remember what it was like to be a teen falling in love I didn t like Carlos much from the snippet I got in Perfect Chemistry and wasn t sure how much I would like this book but ended up really enjoying it The reason I love Alex so much is because he didn t want to be in a gang but felt he had no choice He wore a mask to convince others he was bad yet longed for something in his life His internal struggle moved me so muchplus he was so gosh darned sexy Whereas while Carlos was a hottie too I felt that he had an attitude problem and enjoyed being a badass I really enjoyed watching Carlos growth throughout this book Though at the end of the day Alex is still my numero uno Fuentes brother mi corazon AahhAlex sighs I loved Kiara She is the ind of girl I could see myself having been friends with in high school She is smart funny strong determined and caring Though actually her love of cars and hiking wouldn t have aligned with my interests of reading and talking about hot guys at that age Oh wait those are still my interests LOLI really liked Kiara s best friend Tuck and her adorable younger brother BrandonThe epilogue was sweet but was a little corny But what I most especially loved was getting of Alex and Brittany in this book and seeing them in college even though things were not smooth sailing I loved the realism of their relationship They are one of my favourite YA couples I just love themAll in all Rules of Attraction was funny romantic angsty and tugged at my heartstrings just at the right moments I happily recommend this YA series for adults who enjoy reading YA and want a sexier grittier read and for older teens I m looking forward to the youngest Fuentes brother s Luis book out on 24th May 2011 16th August 2011Love the cover It seems that in this 3rd book Luis Fuentes is the good boy with big dreams who falls for the wrong girl And I already have a cutie image of my Luis so bring on Chain Reaction I originally had Mark Salling who plays Puck on Glee Love Glee in my mind as Carlos as he has the same sort of attitude But Mel who commented on my Perfect Chemistry review led me to a new Carlos Thanks MelMy Carlos Marlon TeixeiraMy Kiara Hayley ErinSome of my favourite uotesscenes We iss all the time I clear my throat then add We justdo it in private A smug expression crosses his face I don t buy it for a second cause if you were my girlfriend and a stud like me was livin in your house I d An Endless Lie kiss you in front of the guy every chance I got as a reminder A reminder of w w what That you were mine Tell me somethin you do that would shock me She sits back on the couch Shock you Yeah Shock me to the core She sits up on hernees and leans toward me I ve thought about you Carlos she whispers in my ear At night in bed I think about issing you our tongues sliding against each other s while your hands are buried in my hair When I think about feeling those ripples in your naked chest I touch my Here s popcorn Westford says barging into the room with two big bowls filled to the rim with freshly popped popcorn Kiara what are you doing You
