If you are a good girl/boy, I’ll bet you’ve had a crush on a bad boy/girl. What is unknown holds a certain attraction. I am down with this. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles is of course a good girl meets bad boy story. Let’s be real here, we already know how it is going to end, since these books all end the same way, so what really matters is how Elkeles takes us there.
Carlos Fuentes meets with some trouble in Mexico and has been sent to live in Boulder, Colorado with his brother Alex. Alex’s studio apartment, however, is not suited for keeping Carlos out of trouble. Carlos is then sent to live with the Westfords.
Kiara Westford is a good girl who gets good grades. She is definitely not in the popular crowd like Brittany from Perfect Chemistry was. She stutters. She is a walking fashion disaster. However, she’s got spunk. I like that she’s comfortable with who she is.
Sparks of course fly between the two as they trade barbs. Kiara gets on Carlos’s nerves and into his head. I found this to be irresistible. At heart, I guess I am a romantic. The adorable absolutely got to me. Also, I enjoyed how the chapters of Rules Of Attraction by Simone Elkeles alternated between Carlos and Kiara. It’s cool seeing both sides.
However, I felt the writing got to be a bit heavy handed at times, and a bit snort-worthy. However, the heavy hand is not prevalent throughout the entire book of Rules of Attraction. I read Rules of Attraction in one sitting. In comparison with Perfect Chemistry, I think I enjoyed Perfect Chemistry more. But Rules Of Attraction by Simone Elkeles definitely did not disappoint. Now, I would not advise buying this in hardcover, because it’s such a QUICK read, but paperback, yes absolutely.
