Rules of Attraction by: Simone Elkeles

Publication Date: 
April 2010

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?

My thoughts:
After reading the first book in this series I went on a mad search for the others. Carlos is probably my least favorite brother. I think it's that fact that although he sees the error of his ways he still has the almighty attitude. . I know they say all middle children are a pill, and I have a sister in the middle so I know it's true. But I think he could reign it in some. 
Carlos and Kara fall for each other instantly, you can tell. They both have issues...her is body issues and his is having no parents.
Dick is and amazing man. I am glad he is so amazing, everything he does for the brothers and in fact their whole family is pretty great! Without his help through out the whole thing would have gone south pretty quickly!
