***SPOILER WARNING if you haven't read Perfect Chemistry***

When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now
My Review:
Rules of  Attraction is hot! I mean its not just the boys involved but the fact that the way Simone writes is so interactive and catching that you needed to read the whole thing in one sitting. Carlos Fuentes is the focus of this second novel in the Perfect Chemistry series, and just not only does he get in trouble like his big brother Alex but just brings everyone with him into the trouble. Between getting sent to counselling and trying to stay out of drugs and away from the Mexican gangs he was involved in Carlos also systematically gets involved with a great girl.

Carlos of course is one of the hot Fuentes brothers, but I'd like to say unlike Alex I think Carlos has gotten himself into more trouble then imaginable. In fact Alex moves him to Colorado to try to get him away from all the trouble he's caused for his Mama and Luis in Mexico. So when he moves in with Alex's College Professor, he doesn't expect to met Kiara the professors daughter. Kiara is a girl of smarts, hiking boots and baggy shirts, she's an outcast but she could be just as pretty as the popular girls if she wanted. The total opposite of Carlos, but when opposites attract they attract. And just like his big brother Carlos falls hard.

Simone's characters are always ease to relate too, especially Kiara for myself. But anyone that picks up this book series is bound to finish the book, if they don't I'm not sure how they can't. I love this series, its so addicting and I can't wait till Luis's book is out in two weeks! If you haven't read Perfect Chemistry or Rules of Attraction then you needed to go out and get them now!
