If you are looking for a great realistic romance novel this is a great choice.
Perfect Chemistry is set in a smaller town where if you were born on the wrong side of the tracks you are either poor or a drug dealer. Everyone knows that. When Brittany is paired up with Alex there is going to be trouble. Brittany is a good white girl from the North side and Alex is a mexican with a reputation. From the second they meet in Chemistry class there are sparks.
Obviously since this is a romance you can probably guess how it ends but reliving that high school experience was crazy for me. There are best friends, crazy gangs, backstabbing, and sleepovers. Now I went to a teeny tiny high school (22 kids in my graduating class). So I didn’t have near any of the drama as was in this book so that is probably a good thing. But I love reading about it.
There are 3 books in this series and all 3 focus on different characters. Rules of Attraction focuses on Alex’s middle brother, Carlos in Colorado. And the last book Chain Reaction focuses on Alex’s youngest brother, Luis. So they all intertwine with each other but I don’t think you have to read them in order.
Favorite Character: Alex Fuentes
Quote: “This is Brittany Ellis … This summer she went to the mall, bought new clothes so she could expand her wardrobe, and spent her daddy’s money on plastic surgery to enhance her, ahem, assets. Her secret desire is to date a Mexicano before she graduates.” -Alex
