Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, 2)

Like the first book, I liked it. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it. It’s still a decent book with a good story line to fit the first one, I just didn’t feel the chemistry between the two characters like I did with Perfect Chemistry. I didn’t think that Kiara had a good enough background to fit her character. She was interesting enough because she likes to hike and work on old cars but I don’t feel that she was described enough for me to click with her. I think her and Carlos’s relationship was not explained enough and it jumped too much.

I liked that there was still some Alex and Brittany in the story. It helped tie in the story to the first one even though they are just companion novels. Overall I think it was a decent story and I shall see how the last one is with the youngest brother.

Carlos Fuentes felt betrayed when the big brother he idolized, Alex, chose to get jumped out of the Latino Blood for a chance at a future with his gringa girlfriend, Brittany. Even worse, Alex has forced Carlos to come back from Mexico to join him on the straight and narrow path. Trouble is, Carlos just wants to keep living on the edge. And ties to his Mexican gang aren’t easy to break, even when Carlos is living with one of Alex’s college professors in Colorado. Carlos feels completely out of place in the suburbs. He’s even more thrown by his feelings for the professor’s daughter, Kiara, who is nothing like the wild girls he’s usually drawn to. But Carlos and Kiara soon discover that in matters of the heart, the rules of attraction overpower the social differences and dangers that conspire to keep them apart.
