triple take: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

from goodreads:

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…

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.

Stacy’s thoughts:

An adrenalin, heart pounding, butterfly in your stomach rush of a read that had me up all night.

Oh, gads people! Why, oh why did I wait so long to read this book? The tension between Alex and Brittany was so hot and heavy I could’ve wiped their sweaty brows. Yowza. Double yowza.  Elkeles definitely had me hooked and wanting more of, ahem, you know…awww, get your mind out of the gutter people I wanted more dialogue between Brittany and Alex! *wink wink*

I give this book 5 STACKS ( Kelley Vitollo!! Thank you soooo much for the recommendation. I’m naming my first born after you.)

Shannan’s thoughts:

Are you kidding me? West side story meets YA (well, adultish-yes!) romance.   I was reading late at night desperately trying to eat and digest the words before I fell asleep. What an awesome story and when I may have rolled my eyes at other books epilogues, I cried a little reading this one full of pure happiness. I love, love, love this book!

I give this book 5 STACKS!

Kelley’s thoughts: (yes, the Kelley from above! Did you know she is also a writer?)

The ultimate bad boy meets the perfect rich girl! I didn’t expect this book to be as deep as it was. Neither Alex or Brittany are what they seem. This is the perfect romance and has a permanant spot on my keeper shelf.

Sweet, passionate, and fun this book just rocks my socks. Oh, and did I mention Alex is hot??

I give this book 5 STACKS
