The sequel to "Perfect Chemistry", this continues the romantic teen story. Ages: 12+ 'Elkeles once again delivers a steamy page-turner bound to make teams swoon.' "School Library Journal"
Carlos Fuentes isn't happy about leaving Mexico to start the "new" life his older brother, Alex, has planned for him. Carlos liked his freedom; living life on the edge - just like Alex did. Kiara Westford doesn't talk much; instead preferring to shut out the world. And when Carlos bounds into her life she struggles to understand him. Carlos is sure that Kiara thinks she's too good for him, which is just fine because he's not interested anyway, right? But when they finally open up to each other, the connection they feel shocks them both. Can they overcome their fears and realise that sometimes opposites really do attract?
I loved Perfect Chemistry, so when I heard that it was trilogy, I was very happy.
I was afraid that this book would be the same story, just with a different Fuentes and potential girlfriend, but it wasn't. Carlos and Alex have some similarities, like their stubbornness, but I was able to see them as two different individuals. I liked Kiara from the beginning unlike Brittany, who I never hated, but really started to like more and more as the book went on. You also get to see how Brittany and Alex are doing. Everything has a explanation and isn't just left for us to wonder, e.g. Why is Carlos a member of a gang despite his brother's history. It was a real page-turner. The epilogue is a glimpse of the future and was kinda cheesy.
