I have a massive library fine now - why? Because I'm being selfish and don't want to give this one up. After reading , I was excited about the change to a trilogy, but doubtful that one of my favorite YAs could be topped. I was pleased to be wrong - to echo a few friends who read this with me, Rules of Attraction was in a league of its own. This heroine, who wears odd clothing combos and has a stutter when she's nervous, was more likable than Perfect Chemistry's heroine. When you read a library copy, then insist on owning your own copy, you know you've found a winner. It's not imperative, but I would recommend reading this trilogy in order. Also, the video teaser for Rules of Attraction is pretty impressive, and not at all cheesy like the very inaccurate video for Perfect Chemistry. Unfortunately, the Rules of Attraction video hasn't been uploaded to the Goodreads author page yet, but you can catch it on her official website. Elkeles has once again given me a gorgeous, complex latino bad-boy hero to fall for in her interracial romance series, and I'm not all surprised Rules of Attraction debuted at #3 on the New York Times bestseller list, right behind my other favorite YA series, The Hunger Games trilogy (Books #1 & #2). The ROA bookcover is just perfect, too - that's an actual scene in the book! :) Everyone I've rec'd this series to has also fallen in love with it - you won't be disappointed~...more

Gorgeous sexy Latino Blood gang member and secretly smart high school student, Alex, falls for a blond cheerleader named Brittney...but it's so much more than that! Shannon and Danielle the Book Huntress have already written amazing reviews which completely sold me on the book. The chemistry is positively electric. Their struggles are real and accurately portrayed. The narrative switches from Alex to Brittney with each chapter, so throughout the romance, you get into both their heads. I'm a fan of getting both the male and female perspective, so this was much appreciated. You won't be disappointed with this one. I can't wait to share this with my younger sister in a few years. There's some alcohal/drug use, sex, and definitely strong language. 12 yro is too young for this IMHO. Just perfect for me though ;) ...more
