Book Review #111 - Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry #1) by Simone Elkeles

Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)
When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more. In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

My Rating: 5/5

I decided to get this book from the Library because I had heard nothing but good things about the author yet had read none of her other works. I had really high expectations prior to reading this book, which thankfully it met.

It never fully liked Brittany as she just irritated me throughout. Alex was likeable but would not make my list of favourite characters.

I was able to look past the characters as the plot was so captivating.

I now have my own copy of this book and so I definitely plan on reading this book again.
