My review of Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry #3) by Simone Elkeles
Release Date: July 5, 2012 (UK), August 16th 2011 (US)
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry, #3)Like his brothers, Luis Fuentes is a risk taker; whether he's scaling the Rocky Mountains or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis is always looking for the next thrill. Nikki Cruz lives her life by certain rules -, don't trust a boy who says "I love you", boys lie to get their own way and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Then she meets Luis at his brother Alex's wedding and suddenly she's tempted to break all her rules. Getting Nikki to give him a chance is Luis's biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by the head of the gang that nearly destroyed his brothers' lives. Will Luis's feelings for Nikki be enough to stop him from entering a dark and violent world that could prove to be the ultimate risk?

Chain Reaction is the final novel in the much-loved Perfect Chemistry series. Written from the point of view of the youngest Fuentes brother, Luis Fuentes will steal your heart just like his brothers' did. Funny, gripping and totally unputdownable!

Luis Fuentes is a risk taker, he loves the adrenaline rush that runs through his veins when he takes the ultimate risk. Nikki Cruz has been made a full of once by a boy who said "I love you" and she is sure as hell not going to let it happen again. Then she meets Luis at Alex's wedding and she's tempted to break her rule. Luis and Nikki meet each other two years later, and well...sparks start to fly.

I love, love, love the first two books, they are incredible! I had to wait a whole year for this one to come out in the UK and boy was it worth the wait. Elkeles has delivered everything readers want on a gold plate. Be prepared to fall endlessly in love with this Fuentes brother.

Luis is determined, hot and clever. He tries his best to not follow in his brother's footsteps because he has a goal; he wants to be an astronaut. I know, I know, the hot Mexican wants to be an astronaut, don't judge. I really admire his courage, strength and the lengths he would go to to protect his family. 

When he meets Nikki, he turns his charm on and it is absolutely hilarious. I can guarantee that you will laugh uncontrollably at some point in this book. The characters are witty and very entertaining. If you have not read this series then go and buy it now! However much it costs, IT'S WORTH IT! 

Overall, Chain Reaction is the perfect conclusion to this trilogy. The Perfect Chemistry trilogy has been an exciting and thrilling roller-coaster that will stay with me for a very long time. I would recommend this series to everyone and I cannot wait to read more of Simone Elkeles' works.
