Carlos is sure that Kiara thinks she's too good for him, which is just fine because he's not interested anyway, right?

'Elkeles once again delivers a steamy page-turner bound to make teens swoon' School Library Journal 'If Perfect Chemistry was good, Rules of Attraction is better! …fans of Perfect Chemistry need to read this book, and those who haven't read Perfect Chemistry need to get their hands on both pronto!' Once Upon a Bookcase 'Elkeles has perfected the way she writes these novels, because like its predecessor, the writing is fast paced and make for easy reads because they never dwindle too much on unnecessary factors.' The Crooked Shelf 'A high recommendation for all fans of teen romance - and there's enough depth to it and action, coupled with a fairly gritty feel, that I can also see it appealing to many people who normally wouldn't look twice at this genre.' The Bookbag
