Book 2 in the Perfect Chemistry series
This book follows Carlos Fuentes as he adjusts to life in Colorado. He grew up in Chicago and most of his family is in Mexico, except for his brother in Colorado. His family hopes that the move will help him and his gang-leaning ways. At his new school, he finds himself attracted to Kiara, a blend-into-the-background sort of girl.
What I Liked
- Sometimes it’s nice to pick up a young adult romance such as this. It flowed decently well and I was able to read it in a day or less. I love the predictability of romances sometimes, and this was no exception.
- Some of the pranks the characters pull on each other are fun and creative. It was nice to see that as well.
What I Didn’t Like
- The relationship moved crazy fast! I know this is fairly typical in romance novels, but this seemed a little extreme. At the very least, we didn’t see as much relationship building as you would expect.
- Kiara didn’t have very much personality in the book. Her pranks were fun and quirky, and she definitely had her moments, but as a whole she was pretty unmemorable.
- The ending seemed way too easy and quite unrealistic. Compared to the first book, this was a little disappointing.
If you liked Perfect Chemistry (book 1) or if you’re a fan of books like Anna and the French Kiss, you’ll probably enjoy this one.
