Luis' story and third companion to the perfect chemistry series gets a thumbs up for humor; I was, at the very beginning especially, so into Luis because he was funny...but then again, so were his brothers(I'm laughing just thinking about them). I'd say Nikki was a good pick for this story, she stood by what she believed in, which was really cool...she was however a bit looney sometimes but then again if I were her I'd probably be worse.

As an individual story, this book was really good but compared to Alex's and Carlos' story...It was just okay. It had some expected and repetitive events. But believe me when I tell you, Luis' story is a must read, trust me! I kind of felt like a yo-yo as I was reading this...a little something this:

Page ?? "Pwahaha! Pwahahaha! More! More!"
Page ?? "*rolls eyes* okay *smacks forehead* ugh"
Page ?? "Go Nikki! Go Nikki!"
Page ?? "Go Luis! Go Lu...-oh wait no! no! nooooo Luuuiiiisss, you idiot!!! : ("
Page ?? "No. Way!"

That pretty much raps up this review. Overall, a very good story if you like how the books' description sounds! A must for Simone Elkeles fans!

"Spanish Word of the Day": Pendejo - a spanish slang word for idiot, stupid or dumass.


Because I'm judging the book on the story, not as the third book in the perfect chemistry series, it receives:
