Spring Blog Carnival - Win RULES OF ATTRACTION by Simone Elkeles






It's time for another blog hop, and this time it's hosted by some amazing people I have to mention! Thank you so much to:

Candace’s Book Blog http://www.candacesbookblog
Reading Angel http://www.readingangel.com
Pure Imagination http://www.pureimaginationblog.com
The Book Swarm http://www.bookswarm.blogspot.com

for organizing this Spring Blog Carnival!



So the funnest thing about these blog hops is trying to decide what from my shelves I can give away. This time, up for grabs is the sequel to a book I absolutely adored. It's a shiny hardcover of:

RULES OF ATTRACTION by Simone Elkeles (Walker, April 13, 2010)


I read PERFECT CHEMISTRY in basically one sitting and loved, loved, loved it! It's no wonder RULES OF ATTRACTION hit the bestseller list!

Check out the OSUM book trailer, too!



From Amazon:

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?
