Review: Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles.

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry #3)
by Simone Elkeles


Like his brothers, Luis Fuentes is a risk taker; whether he's scaling the Rocky Mountains or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis is always looking for the next thrill. Nikki Cruz lives her life by certain rules -, don't trust a boy who says "I love you", boys lie to get their own way and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Then she meets Luis at his brother Alex's wedding and suddenly she's tempted to break all her rules. Getting Nikki to give him a chance is Luis's biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by the head of the gang that nearly destroyed his brothers' lives. Will Luis's feelings for Nikki be enough to stop him from entering a dark and violent world that could prove to be the ultimate risk?

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance.

Published: August 16th 2011, by Walker Books for Young Readers. 

Read: September 15th to 18th 2012.


My Thoughts:

Book 3 is the story about Luis. The youngest of the Fuentes brothers. 
What? you haven't read about the other brothers? What are you waiting for!?!?!
Check my reviews:

- Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry #1)
- Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry #2)

Each of these books is full of romance, action, bad-attitude-but-good-heart-deep-inside boys and perfectly developed characters you can't avoid falling in love with, also they give great importance to family values. 

No need to repeat, that the first one is my favorite, because that one is like a 10 stars book, but books 2 and 3 are definitely amazing too! 
(hence the super 5 stars!)

In this book, we meet Nikki who is our beautiful protagonist, she is strong and sweet but has a sad past that makes her tough.  
And Luis, he is sexy, cocky, full of attitude, incredibly smart and he has big dreams for his future, a big heart but still he is a bit of a rebel. (Or he wouldn't be a Fuentes, after all!)

In the previous books we are given some hints for a specific event (that I won't say to avoid moon size spoilers!) and here we find out exactly what it's going on. I kinda suspected it but anyway, I love how the events unfolded.

We also get to see Alex, Britt, Kyara and Carlos again! yay! Little scenes involving them that I loved because I grew fonder of those amazing characters and they add realism to the story.

The epilogue is insane!

I can't say anything new that I haven't mention in the previous reviews, but this is a fantastic end for a terrific series!
