I didn’t have high hopes for this book, a, because it is the second in a trilogy which are usually stinkers and, b, because I loved, loved, loved Perfect Chemistry. I was proven wrong again. The romance between Kiara and Carlos is a-mazing….and I’ll be honest…I think I could see my 16 year old self friends with Kiara more than Brittany (her perfection would annoy me - even back then lol.) I am glad that the author continued with the same format, alternating point of views and the epilogue, I *heart* the epilogue. Carlos may be my favorite Fuentes brother yet…well…until I meet Luis.

Carlos Fuentes doesn't want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him in Boulder, Colorado. He wants to keep living on the edge, and carve his own path—just like Alex did. Unfortunately, his ties to a Mexican gang aren't easy to break, and he soon finds himself being set up by a drug lord.
When Alex arranges for Carlos to live with his former professor and his family to keep him from being sent to jail, Carlos feels completely out of place. He's even more thrown by his strong feelings for the professor's daughter, Kiara, who is nothing like the girls he's usually drawn to. But Carlos and Kiara soon discover that in matters of the heart, the rules of attraction overpower the social differences that conspire to keep them apart.
As the danger grows for Carlos, he's shocked to discover that it's this seemingly All-American family who can save him. But is he willing to endanger their safety for a chance at the kind of life he's never even dreamed possible?
