Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

Blurb: When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado. Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.

What I think: This book was like the first one. There are a lot of things that are not the same like the town they live in, the type of girl Kiara is, the gang that Carlos is in and the relationship between Alex and Brittany. I did like this book even though I thought it was a little slow at the beginning. It took me a few days to read this book and it usually only takes me about a day to read a book this size. At first I just couldn’t get into it but I never put a book down unless I know for sure I would never finish it. The book ended up getting better around the middle when Kiara and Carlos started getting an attraction to each other. Toward the end it was good because of the gang and what Carlos, Alex, and Mr. Westford had to do to save everyone that Carlos loved. I plan on reading the third book soon.
