Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles



Perfect Chemistry is a YA romance novel that follows two totally different people, breaking the stereotypes and falling in love! This book is set in high school and is full of wit and humor and I just loved it! Oh, and did I mention, ALEX FUENTES! Like, seriously, SWOON. I need an Alex in my life...

Anyway, this book blew me away! I loved every single page of this book and this book is a book based on romance but it travels further in to depth of real life problems that people might be having and I think that is a great aspect of this story! I give this book a 5/5 stars! I wasn't disappointed one bit from the first page to the very last!

SPOILERS!

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for high school romance and high school bad boys. I mean, come on, who isn't? So as soon as I got introduced to the setting of this book, Brittany and Alex, I knew this book was going to be a keeper.

I loved how at there were so many stereotypes in this book because stereotypes is a big issue in society these days. I loved how in the beginning of the book. Brittany and Alex was at the point of hating each other. Alex though Brittany was a spoiled white rich girl who could get anything she wants. Brittany thought that Alex was a gangster with no meaning in his life.

But that's only what it seems like on the outside. As the story progresses, Alex and Brittany's built up walls shatter down bit by bit and the process was beautiful. Both of them were afraid to be vulnerable to the world but as they let their guard down with each other, their connection was once again, beautiful and amazing.

Okay, so I knew from the very beginning that Alex's bet was going to retaliate and hurt Brittany later on. I FREAKING SAW IT COMING! I liked seeing how Alex was conflicted about his feelings toward Brittany because later on it became more than just a bet for him.

I loved seeing how as Brittany and Alex date each other they get to see a little bit of each other's culture. Like when Brittany went to the Mexican wedding and when Alex and Brittany went to a fancy art gala. I did get Alex was upset when they went to the gala just because he was uncomfortable and this stupid artist called him a busboy just because he was Mexican.

I really didn't expect Hector to be the one that killed Alex's father! I never liked Hector and I sensed that Hector was suspicious of something but just not this! I was also really sad when Paco died! He was such a funny side character and a great friend to Alex. I really felt the feels when he died!

After Alex get shot, Alex tells Brittany the whole bet situation to make her leave him. It works and my heart just broke up in to pieces. I get why he did it but just stay together dammit! But later he gets beat up and marked by fire or something painful like that when he tries to leave The Latino Blood for Brittany. That scene was very heartbreaking for me to read but then again proved how much he loved Brit.

I also love how Brittany cares so much for her sister Shelly! Also, Shelly and Alex's interactions are so cute, like seriously!

And the epilogue! OMG. ALEX AND BRITTANY HAVE KIDS! THEY HAVE A BOY NAMED PACO FUENTES AND HE GOES TO CHEMISTRY AND A GIRL IS THERE AND SO IS MRS.PETERSON AND AHHHHHH. THE FEELS.

So those are the majority of my thoughts! What did you think of this book? I will definitely be continuing this series!
