Chain Reaction - Simone Elkeles


Luis Fuentes is a good boy who doesn’t live with the angst that his big brothers, Alex and Carlos, have always lived with. Luis is smart, funny, and has big dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when he falls for the wrong girl, Luis enters a dark world he’s never known, and just when he thinks he’s got life all figured out, learns some disturbing news about his family that destroys his positive outlook on life. Will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance and lure Luis to live on the edge like his new girlfriend and his own father?

Continuing all the steamy romance of the first two books, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Simone Elkeles gives fans one more satisfying taste of the irresistible Fuentes boys.

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry, #3)OMG! How hot are the Fuentes brothers!! I managed to get my grips on a picture of the three guys used as the brothers, and their just all so delightful!
The third book in this series is just as good, if not better than the last two in the series! The Fuentes boys are back, and their smoking! You will not be disappointed with Luis; he is one smoking Mexican lover. Luis isn’t quite a naughty as his brothers but what he does love is a good thrill! Luis is an adrenaline Junkie to the extreme.
We got to see a good chunk of Alex and Carlos life now and where there at with the partners from their own books. It’s great when Authors do this. We all make a connection to each of the characters so it only seems fit to have an update on them in each book. I love all the brothers’ personalities, but I think I like Carlos the best. They all have an amazing dedication to their family and will go to the ends of the world to protect those who they love. And who couldn’t just melt into a big puddle with all the endearments they use for their women.... sigh.....
Luis and Nikki’s relationship is just all over the place! Both are holding back major info from one another but at the same time the heat from these two thumps of the pages. My favourite scene is one that takes place in a pool house at a party - I was found in a catatonic state on the floor after reading this scene. HAWT!
I can hand down say that, Elkeles is one of the best YA authors of our time. How can I put this? Elkeles writes about teenagers, like it really is. None of this ‘Pure Virgin Princess Bride’ bull. These are raging hormonal teenagers, that yeah – wanna and are gonna have sex. They have parents that don’t approve; they have real friends that don’t agree. It’s not perfect to be a teenager and Elkeles portrays that perfectly.
I’m hoping and praying that this is not the end for this series. At the end of the book you get a snippet into a potential new story, I’m hoping this carries through.
Wonderful story and a fantastic book. If you haven’t read this series yet, you my friends are missing out.

Chain ReactionCan I get a little wha,wha....? FUENTES BROTHERS BABY!

thought the series might die down knowing that this 3rd novel,was about Luis. He's suppose to be the goodie two shoes in the family.BUT HOT DAYUMMMMM!!!!!!!! I'm in La-La Land! I've never loved a Ya-series as much as I loved this series! Some one pass me a "Get Out Jail Free Card" Cause I might one day jump one of these brothers *for personnel reasons* LMAO!!!!!!!! Simone Elkeles is too good to her readers,she knows excatly how we like it and how we want it.MMMMMM.......

I Just have one question. How is it in the blurbs and other reviews everyone mentions , Luis runs and gets involved with a bad girl? That is so not true.They Both have baggage.At least she wasn't the kind of chick into drugs and partying and all that other teenage bad girl stuff that was going on in this book. I liked her. Ok,made my point. NEXT!

Holy Mother Of Unholiness! We get more then the average joe story plot in this novel.For instance.

Alex and Brit: Marriage and babies...Swoons! Can I claim his babies? His baby boy has me wrapped around his fingers,he can smooch and drool on my cheeks any day! hehehehehe.....

Carlos and Kira: Major issues,but love them forever and always. LOL!! Just like Carlos would say "make-up sex" is always worth the wild...ahahahaha....

Now as for Luis and Nikki: Nikki reminds me of myself,I'm so generic it's pathetic! ROTFLMAO!!!!!! She claims she's not Mexican but she is,and I claim I'm Spanish,but never show what I'm truly made of,don't know why =P OK! Back to my point! I love that Luis is totally into his culture,and doesn't let anyone tell him he's not. LOVE IT! These two combined set each others fireworks off. Nikki has a strong "FU" Vibe and Luis has an "I'll FU Vibe" It doesn't get better than that. 2years later after they meet at Alex's wedding,they bump into one another during their Senior Year at Fairfield High. Nikki has a past and doesn't trust any guy who tries to get near her.But she feels a strong connection with Luis. Luis is determined to get what he wants,in a very good boy fashion way till,Nikki keeps pushing him away.So that's when his Bad Boy persona releases. AND even I can't deny the desire!

Well,to keep my review short and spoiler free,let me just say.It's Truely Suspenseful and heart breaking. There is major Family togetherness that will bring you down to your knees.(Loved how this family sticks together.)Romance,and so much more....... If you started the series and haven't finished it. Stop being lazy and pick it up,Or Else......I will harass anyone I know if they haven't finished the series yet.LOLZ! Ya'll know who you are! =P

To all teens out there..Simone Elkeles has written a wonderful series that any teen can relate too. Remember we're not all perfect.Shite happens,it's up to everyone of of you to pick up the pieces in your life and make something of yourselves. And it can all start with just a book

BTW!!!!!! I'm so grateful that Alex and Carlos are in their 20's now.So I can officially put this novel on my "Quiver Shelf" Ahhhh...nice! hehehehe
