About the book:
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 southsider 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?
review plateSimone Elkeles guaranteed her position as one of The BookWhisperer’s favorite authors with The Perfect Chemistry series. This incredible series was a best seller from the first book. With each book previewing a separate brother readers will fall in love with each amazing brother, and their counter parts in this series. I feel as though I genuinely know this family after the journey of these three books. This final book was by far the best of the series largely to do with ability to include all three brothers in this single book. It was amazing to see Alex and Brittany showcased as main characters in this novel, and see the progression of there relationship over the years. Carlos is also a large part of the second half of this novel, and it was awesome to catch up on the progress of his relationship with Kiara.  With Luis being a entirely new character to learn in this book I was nervous to see what Simone had to offer. It seems almost unbelievable that this author is able to create three equally attractive and lustful characters that readers will crave and admire. Nikki is spicy and witty new twist giving this last Fuentes brother a run for his money. Luis rises to the occasion, and creates a hot and intense read. Readers will be left breathless, and as always craving more. Unfortunately, Chain Reaction is the final Perfect Chemistry novel, and while I am sad to see it all come to close I was overly thrilled to see how Elkeles wraps up the adventurous journey for the Fuentes family. This has been a hell of a ride! I recommend to anyone that loves a good romance.
