For those of us looking for more “Alpha male” intensity reading (sort of… a la Travis, so I hear), this one has been recommended over and over again. It is YA, but supposedly still very addictive, and very emotionally heart-wrenching.
As per Corrina:
“Ok he’s not a rock star but a pretty bad a** bad boy… it’s got some real danger and sizzle to it too. So no bubble gum love story here.”
And Elizabeth commented:
“As for Perfect Chemistry, Rules of Attraction and Chain Reaction I thought they were really good, definitely YA but worth the read.”
And Rhiannon agrees!
“By the way, the Perfect Chemistry books are AMAZING.”
About book #1:
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.
