Rules of Attraction is the sequel of sorts to Perfect Chemistry. It's about a few years later when Alex is in college and Carlos is a senior in high school. The story is narrated in Carlos and Kiara, a girl at Carlos's new school's perspective.
I loved Perfect Chemistry. I mean LOVE. The book had my blood racing and I couldn't think of anything but Brittany and Alex for days later so I had high hopes for Rules of Attraction. Rules of Attraction was very good, but I think I prefer the first in the series.
Carlos is just as hot as his brother, but with a bit less worrying. Carlos has a bigger temper and struggles to feel numb while Alex struggled to take care of the family. What I love about Carlos is how he is who he is, and everyone else better accept him. Him falling for Kiara made sense. She's different from him. She loves to hike, has schedules for showering, and knows about cars. Kiara constantly challenges Carlos and he loves that. They both do. They make a smokin' hot couple.
The reason I didn't quite love this book was that the ending was a tad too perfect. I thought it was awfully convenient, what happened, but I could still accept that. I didn't really love Kiara. I don't know what about her made me just like her, but something was off for me. I doubt this will happen for anyone else though. The gang part in this book was toned down and not as prominent as in Perfect Chemistry.
All in all, Rules of Attraction is a delicious romantic read that has sprinkles of wit and danger. 4 stars,
