Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

Carlos Fuentes doesn't want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him in Boulder, Colorado. He wants to keep living on the edge, and carve his own path just like Alex did.
Unfortunately, his ties to a Mexican gang aren't easy to break, and he soon finds himself being set up by a drug lord.
When Alex arranges for Carlos to live with his former professor and his family to keep him from being sent to jail, Carlos feels completely out of place. He's even more thrown by his strong feelings for the professor's daughter, Kiara, who is nothing like the 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 that conspire to keep them apart.
As the danger grows for Carlos, he's shocked to discover that it's this seemingly All-American family who can save him. But is he willing to endanger their safety for a chance at the kind of life he's never even dreamed possible?

My Thoughts: Wow. I absolutely loved this book!! I first read Perfect Chemistry in the beginning of the year and LOVED it, once I heard the Author made another book, I bought it. I love how the story keeps going from one brother to another. Hopefully she makes another book!! This time with Luis Feuntes... lol anyways Carlos ain't as tough as he wants people to believe. He doesn't want to disappoint his mom. And Kiara was always the shy girl, and she wanted to be known as the girl who wasn't afraid to stand up for herself. She doesn't want to leave high school being the girl who stutters. I loved how Carlos never made Kiara tell him why she stutters, he might of asked her about it but only to avoid something else he had on his mind *cough* *cough*. She actually never told him but he knew that she stuttered when she got nervous and that happened quite a lot around him. Carlos and Kiara were total opposites but so were Alex and Brittany. When I first saw the cover of the book, I wondered why it was two people leaning out of their car kissing but you'll understand once you read it because I realize now its the PERFECT cover :) Plus that part in the book is my FAVORITE part!! Throughout the book Carlos is a jerk for many reasons, and he wanted to make Kiara hate him so she wouldn't love him. I personally think this book is SO romantic, I cant wait to read more of Simone Elkeles novels. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loved Perfect Chemistry and if you haven't read Perfect Chemistry... READ IT!
Im rating this book a...
4.5
Why?
Because it was Romantic!
And YES I'll admit, I'm a sucker for those
They have amazing epilogues
Its perfect kind of book to cheer you up :)
