Genre: YA (or not) Romance
From: the library
This book is a sequel of sorts to Perfect Chemistry. That book is about Alex, but this book is about his brother Carlos, who has come to live with Alex. He's not too happy. He's a bit cocky, and rebellious and bitter and frustrated. The first day at his new school, he is assigned a peer guide for the week, a geeky looking girl named Kiara. He does a lot of eye rolling.
And of course, he ends up in trouble before the week is out and in order to help solve the problem, Kiara's family offers their home to him. He's thinking, what rotten luck, but he doesn't have much choice. And now he has to deal with Kiara and her strangeness 24/7.
Most reviews say they still like Perfect Chemistry better, but I actually think I enjoyed this one better. Even though there was still the harsh language and choices being made that I don't agree with, it seemed just a bit less harsh and tamer than the first book. That being said, there's still plenty of steamy hotness going on in this book just like the first one!
As far as characters go, I liked Kiara much better than Brittany from the first book, and I actually think I liked Carlos better than Alex too. Alex was a little scary, and I think Carlos was all bark and no bite. But still, they are both such complicated boys!
Bottom line: I enjoyed it a lot.
