Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles

Sigh the end of a trilogy…so sad…especially *this* trilogy.  While this was my least favorite book (and Luis is my least favorite brother lol) I still loved, loved, loved the series as a whole.  AND the epilogue…I LOVED the epilogue…without giving any spoilers, the epilogue held a particular special place in my heart.
On a side note... I am trying something  new...I love book trailers (and Simone Elkeles has done an amazing job with mini movies...really).  So I am including book trailers with my reviews....Enjoy!!!

Book Description via Amazon

Release date: August 16, 2011 | Series: Perfect Chemistry

Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. But that didn’t stop him from taking risks — whether he’s scaling a mountain in the Rockies or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis can’t stop looking for the next thrill. Nikki Cruz lives her life by three rules — boys lie to get their way, don’t trust a boy who says “I love you,” and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Her parents may be from Mexico, but as a doctor’s daughter, she has more in common with her north-side neighbors than the Latino Blood at her school. Then she meets Luis at Alex’s wedding, and suddenly, she’s tempted to break all her rules. Getting Nikki to take a chance on a south sider is Luis’s biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by Chuy Soto, the new head of the Latino Blood. When Chuy reveals a disturbing secret about Luis’s family, the youngest Fuentes finds himself questioning everything he’s ever believed to be true. Will his feelings for Nikki be enough to stop Luis from entering a dark and violent world and permanently living on the edge?
