Damn you Latino boys hot tattooed sweet talking Latino boys Now no one is going to be good enough This book has a lot of similarities to the first in the series Perfect Chemistry at the beginning it felt like the only difference was that Kiara had a stutter After finishing it I still feel it was substantially similar in characters and plot but I don t give a crap I still really liked it In other news I know some people are fans of the cover art in this series but I think it is pretty mortifying After Perfect Chemistry s cover where Alex and Brittney are laying on each other in the cover art I saw this one and thought Thank Goodness I Am goodness I am living with my Boston roommates any they made fun of me for reading the other one and this one is even ridiculous Did you see the cover for the third book in the series Chain Reaction THEY ARE SHOWERING TOGETHER I would never read that book on the T public transportation Buuuuut that brings me to something elseThe sexiness Whoa mama I listened to this one on audiobook and it was pretty hot I enjoyed the romance aspects of this book than most of the romances I read What s that you say That s kind of gross since I m 27 Well FU I don t care what you say Also Carlos sounds hot Alex was hot too It stands to reason that Luis will be hot too If there is a shower scene in book three I am totally there Oh wait I was there anywaySpeaking about sounding hot it was pretty interesting to hear the shifting first person narration in this novel I ve never encountered this in an audiobook before when Carlos is narrating a Mexican well I didn t look him p maybe the voice actor just does an amazing accent man narrates and every character sounds like they would from Carlos point of view so Brittney the professor Tuck and Brandon all have Brothers uasi Mexican accents And when Brittney narrates the female voice actor impersonates Carlos and Alex s voices At first I felt that it was off putting but I gotsed to it over time and I think it actually added to my experience If you haven t read Perfect Chemistry by Ms Elkeles there may be spoilers ahead Want to get in trouble with me Carlos Initial Final Page ThoughtsOK so I have to admit I originally picked this book p with every intention of laughing at it as opposed to with it But Ms Elkeles definitely got the last laugh because this book and I had a whale of a time together and I m thinking of proposing soon AlsoSome Things I Will Never UnderstandWhy some girls and some boys where leggings as pants How they get the tiny writing to go all the way through Blackpool Rock Dr Who My 8 times table Olly Murs Why so many people prefer Perfect Chemistry over this book I don t know whether I have to hand in my YA reader card in to someone or get a strike against my name or something but I much much muuuuuch preferred this bookHigh PointsCarlos Kiara Being a badass Perky privates Shared bathrooms Mountain walks Homecoming dances Lake side canoodles Magnetic cookies Chicas Cowboys The Ultimate eers Mr Westford s Home for Wayward Boys Swapping germs Low PointsI didn t really like the whole gangbanger LOL thing in this book In Perfect Chemistry it worked with Alex s character but with Carlos it just seemed like Ms Elkeles was like Meep we need angst I know I ll add a gang That worked for the first one Also the whole pretend boyfriendgirlfriend thing I have no idea why Carlos and Kiara did that at all It just seemed a bit randomI probably don t need to tell you that the epilogue made me want to claw my eyes out but not as much as the first one HeroHola CarlosOh wait sorry I know you don t like white kids try and sound Mexican I m sorry but you might have to get over that if we re going to hang out because I like to pretend I m Mexican on a regular basis I thought you were going to be a mini version of Ale ale Alejandro but by gum was I wrong about you Maybe I have a defective girl gene because Alex never did anything for me but Carlos amigo sorry friend you were a million times better Especially in this book because yawn Alex Have you always been so dull I thought you were a much entertaining narrator than your older hermano brother Where he was funny you were hysterical Where he was a bit cheeky you were a full on rummon Where he was cute with Brittany you were a bona fide BOTS Bringer of the Swoon with Kiara Also you said things like this Ever since I got fired from the sugar mill two months ago I ve lived la vida loca Whether Alex wants to admit it or not being a badass is my legacy Hell I coul. Das Letzte was Carlos Fuentes will als er zu seinem Bruder Alex zieht ist es diesem gleichzutun Denn weder ist Carlos bereit auf sein Image als »Bad Guy« zu verzichten noch mag er sich wie Alex nd dessen Freundin Brittany in eine feste Beziehung begeben Und sc.

Hon gar nicht will Carlos sich auf seine Mitschülerin Kiara einlassen denn sie ist das exakte Gegenteil der Mädchen auf die er bislang abfuhr Auch Kiara hat alles andere im Sinn als mit einem arroganten Latino Macho wie Carlos anzubandeln Und doch ziehen sich .
