~Review~ Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

Published April 13th 2010

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...more HERE

—He cradles my face in his hands and forces me to look into his dark, sexy eyes filled with passion and desire. “You’re playin’ a dangerous game, chica.”
“I know. But I trust you.”—

+ 2
first for the cover being an actual scene in the book
second because the tittle of the book is used in the story line.

Wow!! even though you know how I felt about the spanish in the first book I’m glad Elkeles took it down a notch in this one…with just a few scenes that were a bit weird for me because ,again, of the spanish but enough of that.
I really just want to say how amazing this book was…how it shows you YET another insight as to what latin gangs mean in the US, how Love is really unexpected and incomprehensible, that sex is not the same as making love, and that someone helping you doesn’t exactly mean you’ll have to pay for that help.

This is the story of the second Fuentes brother, Carlos and how he struggles with not wanting to be like his brother while looking up at him. He is a trully cute/sexy/hot/stubborn character but it seriously cannot win against Kiara’s character wich is a funny/simple/straight forward/strong girl.
We watch them struggle with their own demons and inhibitions and in the end they prove to us that there are NO RULES OF ATTRACTION and that you can’t help it when you feel attracted to someone and feeling that you could wrap the universe in your fist and offer it to that special someone just for the fun of it.
True, Lovely, Hard, Sweet, Real, and Mezmering book that will not be on any shelf left for long but on the hands of those who buy looking for an awesome read.

5/5 (spanish)
