BOOK REVIEW: Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles

It is with a heavy heart that I must say this: This is the last book in this (EFFING AWESOME) series, and thus my last review for a novel in this series. But alas! There is hope (note: please don't dwell on this, as 'hopefully' is mentioned here. Operative word, amigos). 
To check this in more detail, click here 

Check out my review of Book #1 here
Check out my review of Book #2 here

Happy Friday, chums! I just survived a no-break 8 hour shift at work (is that even legal?) And as a 17 year old with the urge to gtfo, I accredit myself for that. Anyhoozle, to celebrate, it's time to pull out the champagne (is that even legal?) and the booooks. 
**Update: I fell asleep on my laptop. So I've resumed it on Saturday morning =) I had planned to review it with GIFs but things change :(
Let's delve in!

Goodreads summary:
Luis Fuentes is a good boy who doesn't live with the angst that his big brothers, Alex and Carlos, have always lived with. Luis is smart, funny, and has big dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when he falls for the wrong girl, 

Luis enters a dark world he's never known, and just when he thinks he's got life all figured out, learns some disturbing news about his family that destroys his positive outlook on life. Will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance and lure Luis to live on the edge like his new girlfriend and his own father?

Continuing all the steamy romance of the first two books, NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Simone Elkeles gives fans one more satisfying taste of the irresistible Fuentes boys.

GENRE: Romance, Coming of Age/Young Adult- Definitely a novel for slightly maturer readers, Contemporary
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles

RELEASE DATE: August 16th 2011

This words. 
Ok, I'm ready. So this novel was bomb. 
It started out a bit iffy cause Luis and Nikki were 15 years old and I thought there was gonna be (SPOILER ALERT: more) underage sex..which I'm not particularly comfortable with. But, as if Simone Elkeles heard me almost doubting her, she kicked arse. 
So Luis and Nikki met first at...a (SPOILER ALERT: Brittany and Alex's) wedding. First, I'd like to say again how much I love the Fuentes fam (mama included, obvi) and how they have each others' backs. Even if that means Luis stopping the wedding for a mo...

Now Luis, I had slight trouble picturing as a bad boy true to the Fuentes legendary personality trait because he was so young in the first two novels. If that's a sh*tty reason, sorry. Long story short, if you have those doubts, don't. Not even for a second. See, Luis isn't bad like Carlos or Alex- he's bad like Luis. This guy is beyond smart (with hopes of becoming an astronaut) but also has a daredevil streak. And that's epic. Granted, it does become his undoing, though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Nikolasa/''Nikki'' is a Mexican by heritage but American for all intents and purposes/bit like me (but in different contexts. I'm British and for some reason, disregard my heritage except for occasionally. Not when Granny is in town, that's for sure lol).  So she doesn't speak Mexican and likes to be called a Western nickname. Her reasoning for dissociating with her heritage is far better than mine...her dad (who is the doctor who performed surgery on Alex- Simone is too clever!!) had a rough childhood in Mexico and doesn't want his kids to go through that. 
She was downright epic. She was so blunt it was painful. P.S. She kicked Luis in the crotch. At his own brother's wedding. On the dance floor. Goals!

Before we move any further, I'd like to say that Simone Elkeles did an amazing job on these characters. I mean, very few authors can depict the type of characters that Nikki and Luis are. I mean, Luis is bad boy and good boy. 

Now aside from character development (e.g. overcoming fears, keeping their eyes on the prize and figuring out that love overcomes everything- I'm still trying to figure out the last one but this novel series has kinda helped) and kickass writing and storylines, I really, really, really, really enjoyed the much anticipated 
Panty Discus!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, if you've read the previous two novels and have zero ideas what I'm talking about, I'm tempted to do this: 

If you haven't read the novels, then you're pardoned. 

Basically, the Fuentes brothers played this game whenever their mum went to work- they'd cut her pantyhose (or 'tights' if you're British) and put rocks in and fling 'em across the yard. Sound awesome? Okay, get this: All the couples (Alex and Brittany, Carlos and Kiara and Luis and Nikki) play against each other. While I'm not going to spoil the outcome (even though every bone is itching me to do so), I'm just gonna say that it was arguably the best scene in the entire series and was so fun that I wanted to become fictional and part of their world. Then I got sad. *sigh* 

HOWEVER, with every actionthere is an equal and opposite reaction. Okay, that quote doesn't really fit here but...I felt like the Pantyhose scene came a bit fast ? Like Nikki and Luis were trying to figure out what's what and their status and stuff. But it worked. But I had to voice that opinion. 

Another con during the one way ticket to paradise that was reading this novel was that the drug/gang storyline was kind of a tertiary storyline...with the love/romance taking up the first and second slots. The drug/gang climax seemed fuzzy at times but eventually gained prominency. 

I just loved this novel so much that I don't want this review to end!! And whilst I'm 75% through re-reading the second novel, I'm definitely going to re-read Chain Reaction ∞ times!

Just read it. You won't regret it.

In my previous reviews (check 'em here and here), you may have noticed that I meticulously handtype the quotes that I've virtually highlighted and that they are all in chronological order. Unfortunately, due to my animal-like speed reading of this novel lol, I didn't highlight any novels. Not because there were no amazing ones- if I could include the whole damn book, I would. Basically, I'm just saying that I am going to take the quotes from Goodreads :)
  • “Nobody really knows her
    Except the chosen few
    Her secrets are kept hidden
    Behind that sun-kissed hue.
    If I reach out to touch her
    She’ll just run away
    My Forever and Always
    Will have to wait another day.” 
    Oh, yeah, did I mention Luis writes poetry about Nikki?
  • “- I don't want you to love me.
    - Too late, mi chava.”
  • “Alex and Carlos—the tag team from hell. They’re the last people I need shit from right now. If they decide to trail me, too, I’ll have an entire entourage.
  • "Because it's stupid, Nik. There's not even room in my day to think about someone else.”
  • “Nothin'," Alex says. "We'll talk later, chica. It's not a big deal."
    "Don't chica me, Alex," his bride snaps.
    "I think she's gonna deck him," Ben murmurs, amused.”
  • “He has no clue that I have the patience of a saint. At least that's what Carlos says, although that isn't saying much, considering his fuse is about as short as an eyelash.”
  • “There’s always time for arguin’ when you’re a Fuentes.”  AMEN
  • “Sometimes things are better off forgotten.” 
  • “I won't have sex with you," she blurts out.
    He words slam into my libido like a bucket of water on a flame full of testosterone. I think my dick just twitched in protest.” 
  • IMAGE NOT MINE. Credit where
    it's needed

  • “Ben walks in the room and asks, “What were you guys doing?” Nikki says “Nothing” at the same time I say, “Your sister and I were just makin’ out.” 

  • “Sometimes I think Ben is right, that the fantasy world is better because reality sucks...but then I look at Nikki and I believe that we can beat the odds.” 
  • “Yeah, it does. You once told me that I make you believe in the impossible. You make me believe in love, which I'd given up on. Thank you for proving to me it's not just a fairy tale.''
  • “His high school girlfriend. I caught them in the act.” “You caught them having sex at Homestyle Buffet?” Carlos chimes in, confused and maybe a little amused.” 

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 50 stars!!
Long story short...
Would I read it again?
Without a doubt
Would I recommend it?
Absolutely- anyone who can read, this one's for you! (That means EVERYONE should read it)
Would I be caught wandering (and being saved by the book guy) in this world in my dreams? 

Who's your OTP? Alex and Brittany (Barbie and roughed up Ken), Carlos and Kiara (Good girl who turns bad for her boy and the bad boy who turns good for his girl) or Luis and Nikki (Mexicano and Mexicana?)
Do you hope for there to be a follow up novel?
How many times are you gonna re-read this series?
Any other comments for this novel?
You know where to sound off

Time to get deep...

Phew. That's a weight off of my shoulders- thank you, Simone Elkeles. This series meant- means- more to me than I could've ever imagined. It saved me.

BOOK REVIEW: Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

Hiiii!! Okay so first it would do ya justice if you read ny review of book #1 in this series (It would also do ya justice if you just read this series!! Then you'll find out why I've been losing sleep)
Needless to say, I am going to have the pleasure in reviewing Rules of Attraction by my new Twitter  bestie, Simone Elkeles.
Let's get started !!

7137775Carlos Fuentes doesn't want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him in Boulder, Colorado. He wants to keep living on the edge, and carve his own path-just like Alex did. Unfortunately, his ties to a Mexican gang aren't easy to break, and he soon finds himself being set up by a drug lord. 

When Alex arranges for Carlos to live with his former professor and his family to keep him from being sent to jail, Carlos feels completely out of place. He's even more thrown by his strong feelings for the professor's daughter, Kiara, who is nothing like the girls he's usually drawn to. But Carlos and Kiara soon discover that in matters of the heart, the rules of attraction overpower the social differences that conspire to keep them apart.

As the danger grows for Carlos, he's shocked to discover that it's this seemingly All-American family who can save him. But is he willing to endanger their safety for a chance at the kind of life he's never even dreamed possible?

GENRE: Romance, Coming of Age/Young Adult- Definitely a novel for slightly maturer readers, Contemporary
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles
SOURCE: Bought, ebook

RELEASE DATE: April 13th 2010
*Even though this is a Young Adult book, I'd recommend slightly mature readers to read it due to the premise (involving drugs and gangs), profanity and scenes of sexual nature :)

I'm going to start with a quick summary of this (heavensent) novel. 
Sooo we've got the ever so hot, Carlos Fuentes, who is the younger (but oh so much badder) brother of my first book bf, Alex (PSA: He is the protagonist in the first novel, Perfect Chemistry). He has been living in Meheco (does being like 1/12th Mexican give me the right to say it like that? Lol!) for the past two years (following the events of the first novel), but now it's time for this Fuentes to come back to the Americas to focus on schoolwork, etc and live with his bro, Alex! (And his gf Brittany!) I thought 'Yay, a heartfelt reunion between these dudes'- I mean, they were quite close in the first novel. Boy, was I wrong... So Carlos has changed- he's become a man and hasn't seen Alex in a couple of years and basically doesn't GAF (we've all been there). Buuut he does start school and this is where my new fave love story begins. Next up, we've got Kiara (I'd like to point out that I was reading it as 'Keira' for a quarter of the novel, then my older sister snuck up on me on starting one of her chapters and said 'Who's Kyra?' And I had an 'Oh, dang' moment. Not important). Kiara is me in a nutshell (or what I would be if I could ditch my phone for the outdoors. One day, I'll find the strength). She's athletic, doesn't give two sh#ts about her appearance and is downright sassy. After being those things (and I stress the 'after' because Simone Elkeles makes the effort of characterizing the character THEN revealing what's up, which ensures it does not define the character in terms of their impairment) Kiara has a slight verbal impairment- she stutters. And that makes her crazy self conscious but she helped herself get over that, to which it only comes back when she is nervous. Guess who makes her nervous? Go on, guess. Okay so let me clarify, at first she owns it (being sassy and outwitting him) but then when she falls for him she...stumbles. 
 I'm gonna stop my summary there because it's more like the review and...most of it will be in orange :/

Okay so, this novel, and I speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth when I write this, was amazing. I love Carlos, I love Kiara, I loved every character.
But aside from my crushes on the characters, I also enjoyed their development.       
Ee gee, Carlos went from this stone cold (and not just his abs) dude not giving a care in this world to someone who cared about a girl he once classed according to stereotypes (to be fair, she did, too) to someone joining the military. 
And Kaira went from being afraid- hmm, not afraid..I'd say just not speaking up for the world to hear her, to someone who did exactly that.
However, with every great masterpiece, there is a little bit of discolored paint...I would've liked to know, in detail, how Kiara got through her stuttering and what she did after school or college. 
Other than that, it was gold.

This novel was written, in true Elkeles style, in alternating POV between Carlos and Kaira. And I flippin' loved the events and storyline. The progression of their love and morals was downright fantastic and I really enjoyed that. 
Then there's the fact that my OTP, Alex and Brit, were heavily involved; ahhh....
Yeah, I really fangirl when characters form other novels come in other novels.

The living situation- of a professor (Kiara's dad who knows Alex) taking in an eighteen year old thug..I mean, I know sure as hell that my mum wouldn't allow that. But I easily overlooked this. 
And there were parts were I was slightly lost with the progression of the drug dealing part, aka the climax. 
But all in all, it was a stellar read


My favourite quotes

**If I could include the whole book here, I would. 
  • "Don't make my shitty life worse than it already is."
  • "...and just the thought of being alone right now where I don't have to put on a fake smile sounds like heaven to me". 
  • 'Carlos's door is open a crack. Tuck peers inside. ''I don't see.'' Tuck says. ''That;s 'cause I was takin' a piss,'' Carlos says from behind me. 
  • I've never met any girl who cares less about her appearance. ''Where you goin' all dressed up?'' I joke. 
  • I moan and throw my head back. ''Perpetuatin'? Perpetuatin'? Hell, Alex, our people don't even know the meanin' of that word.''
  • ''You better be careful, Kiara,'' I call out to her. ''Your personality is startin' to show.''
  • Time to change tactics. ''Want to make out?'' ''With who?'' she asks, not bothering to look up.
  • ''Can we do a rematch?'' Carlos asks. ''Like two out of three. Or three out of five?'' ''No way, Jose,'' ''My name's Carlos, not Jose,'' Carlos says, but Brandon isn't listening. 
  • As much as I rebel, I'd do anything to make her smile again.
  • It's something a boyfriend would do to a girlfriend that he's crazy about and...and...and Carlos is full of complete bullshit. I know it. He knows it. 
  • ''Fine. Homecoming. But you have to wear a dress...and heels. And I'm not talkin' those thick granny ones.''
  • '...I need to protect my heart from being broken.'
  • ''He's a looker.'' ''I know. The problem is, he knows it, too.''
  • ''I appreciate you being here.'' ''And I appreciate you wearin' that dress.''
  • And I feel like complete crap.
  • How am I going to face him in the morning? Worse, how am I going to face myself?
  • ...'I'm tempted to put something red inside the laundry so your underwear turns pink''...I shrug. ''That's okay. I don't wear underwear,'' I lie.
  • I bet I look the same as I feel: like complete shit.
  • ''I thought you didn't want to get involved.'' ''I don't. I want to numb the pain, and figure that seein' you naked right about now might help.''
  • ''Can you walk?'' ''Yeah, but please don't make me prove it right now. Maybe later. Maybe tomorrow.''
  • He's doing a great job of  trying to hide his pain, and I don't think anyone else notices, But I do.
  • The guy doesn't look like he has a care in the world, and right about now I'm jealous.
  • ''You'd be surprised how far away half dead is from fully dead, Alex. Actually, I feel like shit, but am doin' a helluva good job fakin' it.''
  • ''I'm mad at you.'' ....''Take a number and get in line, kid.''
  • ''I live in a permanent rebellious stage.''
  • ''You want to keep our relationship a secret from my parents. I don't. I want to scream to the world that we're together.''
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 stars!!
Long story short...
Would I read it again?
Is the sky blue?
Would I recommend it?
Definitely :)
Also, if you enjoyed Katie McGarry's novel, then you'll love this
Would I be caught wandering (and being saved by the book guy) in this world in my dreams? 
Don't even ask.

Is Kiara and Carlos your OTP? Or are you more of a Barbie and roughed up Ken person, AKA Alex and Brittany?
Do you also want to give Mama Fuentes a huge hug for her great job of bringing up these hawt guys?
Do you look forward to the next novel? Have you already read it? What do you think?
Any other comments for this novel?

Extra, Extra! Read All About It!!

Guess who is over the moon for two reasons? Why it's me, your favourite (am I stretching it?) blogger who never is over the moon (I merely gaze at the stars from the gutter). 

BUT something amazing happened. It all started with a book...then it's sequel..then the next book and somewhere in between I became emotionally invested into this series that I was begging Zeus or whomever is upstairs to turn me into a fictional character. 
That series, my dear friends is the Perfect Chemistry series [Note: I have seen this online being referred to by the Fuentes so idk what's correct]

ANYWAYS, I obviously expressed my love online (yelling into the Twitter verse,  as one does ¯\_(ツ)_/ ) and GOT SOME REPLIES FROM THE AUTHOR. Hell, I even got a few likes and a RETWEET. 
>>My arm is injured because of all the pinching
<<That was a joke. Please don't think I'll ever joke about the serious stuff. 

MOVING ON NOT-SO-SWIFTLY, for those of you who have read the series (If you haven't, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIVES? YOU CALL YOURSELF A BOOK LOVER? *smiles sweetly & innocently* If you'd like reason to read this series, please click here), the author, a Ms Simone Elkeles (AKA my newest Twitter author bud, AKA the poor victim to my constant cyber tagging), ANSWERED A QUESTION THAT MANY OF US YEARN. Dun, dun, dduuun...

Yep, you heard it first here, folks! There may be another story in this series.
You're welcome
*drops mic*
*trips over mic wire*

Adios! (Pun intended)

BOOK REVIEW: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Welcome to Always Falling for Book Guys, wherein I fall head over heels for fictional guys, as evidently showed in this post...

This is my review of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles!

Soo as a little backstory, in the lonely hour, I was searching books with bad guys (you know the type). Aaaand I found this little book. Little did I know it was gonna change be forever, for better, or for worse..

Goodreads summary:
Haha, the cover is so 2008!
..Whosaid that's a bad thing? XD
A fresh, urban twist on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers.

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created 'perfect' life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for: her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. 

Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

GENRE: Romance, Coming of Age/Young Adult- Definitely a novel for slightly maturer readers, Contemporary
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles
PUBLISHERWalker Childrens
SOURCE: Bought, ebook
RELEASE DATE: December 23rd 2008

Like all great YA books, this one starts of with our main characters being assigned new seats in chemistry- alphabetically (Brittany Ellis and Alejandro 'Alex' Fuentes). Oh, and it's compulsory- as shown in  the many times it was pointed out by the coolest, strictest Chem teacher slash Cupid, Mrs Peterson. 

So Brittany is your average Queen B of the school- perfect hair, perfect skin, perfect teeth, perfect clothes, perfect friends, family, boyfriend..? 
And then Alex is, well the opposite, for lack of a better description. For the record, in my eyes, he is beyond perfection. But in the eyes of everyone at Fairfield High, he is just any smoking hot yet dodgy drug dealer and gang banger who prolly know the type, right?

Ok, so their banter (or 'foreplay', as Brittany's ex bf calls it) is riveting and by that, I mean hilarious and slightly rated R. 
I enjoyed the overall storyline- we've got a forbidden romance (opposites really do attract!0 and the obstacles that prevent them from being together, which-I might add- are very different. Case in point: Brittany's demons involve her parents disowning her and her mother not liking her outfits, whereas my boy Alejandro's demons involved him getting beaten up blindfolded and shot. 
Potato, potahto..

This novel was written in first person, with every chapter alternating between Brittany's and Alex's POV. Also, it includes quite a lot of profanity and sexual descriptions, so maybe maturer readers are best to read it :)
It was well written, HOWEVER, however, however, there were certain parts where I felt like it was too focused on the spiciness that the scene wasn't properly set. For example, when they make up and Alex drives Brit on his motorcyle- it is raining but it appears as if they start going past first base (her top was off) right then and there! And if that were the case (hell, I root for rain kisses!) maybe Elkeles could have mentioned in Brit's POV of that scene something about the rain hitting her skin ?
I was also slightly lost with most of the Spanish (ya girl failed the language of Spain) but..
I didn't really like it when Alex straight up called her a bitch, either. That sucked. Like my man is all chivalrous and kind hearted, but his mouth needs washing out with soap ? C'mon
And it was slightly stereotypical and unrealistic, but who tf cares???
I really wanted to read all about their presentation on hand warmers, too!! *pouty, sad face*
Aside from those teeny criticisms, I enjoyed everything else. 
Oh, I almost forgot- it was also bad because my standards have zoomed further and now anyone who isn't like Alex won't make my cut (as if I have a long line. But you guys get me..I hope).

There was love, there was definitely heartbreak (which isn't cool to do with a person with a stone heard, ya know ;p). It was a beautiful, emotional rollercoaster. 

Another thing I'd like to mention is that I applaud- and thank- Ms Elkeles for including people of diverse abilities, disabilities and backgrounds in this book. I admire you for that, ma'am.

So all in all, it was-is- a marvellous read and I will definitely be reading the sequels- which are Alex's brothers' love stories!!!!!!!! Eeee! Baby Carlos and Luis growing up :')
Ø Now it's time for my favourite part (I'm British, in case you're wondering about the spelling), which is called, no pun intended, MY FAVOURITE QUOTES (I heart this part because I get to relive some of my fave scenes!)
  • 'I put on a hell of a show to the outside world; sometimes I even surprise myself.'
  • 'My instincts tell me to abandon the car and flee..' I just found it hilarious how at first, because of the stereotypes and assumptions, Brit was scared of Alejo.
  • ''She's mine, Don't ever forget that.'' ''Then keep a leash on her,'' I advise. ''Or she might be tempted to find a new owner.''
  • ''Most of the time her bark is worse than her bite.''
  • ''If you don't look at me, I'm gonna bleed all over the floor and need a fuckin' transfusion. Look at me, dammit.'' This dominancy stuff is hawt. 
  • ''My goal is to be numb, not dead.''
  • 'I can't keep my eyes from ogling his chiseled triceps and biceps and every other 'eps' he has..'
  • ''You play the game just like I do. You use your looks, your bod, and your brains to make sure you're always in control.''
  • 'And I allow myself to cry.'
  • 'I have what you call an offensive personality.'
  • “We're actors in our lives, pretendin' to be who we want people to think we are.” 
  • 'I confided in Alex yesterday and the sky didn't fall.'
  • 'Problem is, the bathroom pass can't help you escape life.'

  • 'It took me a damn long time to learn that I was my own enemy.'
  • ''At the time, you're numb and try to block it out.''
  • 'Right now, I itch to heal his wounds and forget my own.'
  • 'Because being with Alex takes me away from my own darkness.'
  • ''Brittany, you in there?'' Alex's voice comes through the door. ''No.'' ''Please come out.'' ''No.'' ''Then let me in.'' ''No.'' 
  • ''Just dance.'' I say quietly as I guide her arms around me and we dance. 
  • 'Feelings can't be a part of this game.' 
  • 'I wish I could change her life and take the hurt away..'
  • ''I'll stop carin' about what other people think when I'm six feet under.''
  • ''That's rule number one. Don't let them see you scared shitless.''
  • 'He cuts me off with a kiss so powerful I forgot what I was supposed to be upset about.'
  • ''What do you want to hear?'' ''Nothing. Everything.''
  • 'the lows are as low as the highs are high.'
  • ''Don't be shy with me.''
  • 'I scream at the top of my lungs.'
  • 'Unfortunately, real life can't be wrapped up with a nice little bow.'
  • 'Memories of Brittany keep me from crying out in pain.'
  • ''I suppose I'll get over it one day. It's not likely, but I can hope, can't I?''
  • ''Mujer, you own my soul.''
Me going overboard with those quotes is an understatement. 

And that's my cue to leave. Adios
