PERFECT CHEMISTRY

A modern tale of star-crossed lovers with a fresh urban twist. 
At Fairfield High School, on the outskirts of Chicago , everyone knows that south-siders mixing with north-siders can be explosive.  So when Brittany Ellis and Alejandro “Alex” Fuentes are forced to be lab partners in chemistry class, this human experiment leads to unexpected revelations – that Brittany ’s flawless reputation is a cover for her troubled home life, that Alex’s bad-boy persona  hides his desire to break free from gang ties, and that when they’re together, life somehow makes more sense.  Breaking through the stereotypes and expectations that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart, Perfect Chemistry takes readers to both sides of the tracks in a passionate love story about looking beneath the surface.

RULES OF ATTRACTION

When a cocky and egotistical Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for the past year, he doesn't want any part of the goody-two-shoes life his older brother Alex has laid out for him in Colorado. When he meets Kiara Westford, a good girl totally unlike any of the girls he's usually drawn to, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she's too good for him. But will he put his pride aside when he realizes that being with Kiara might finally break down his barriers so he can live a clean life instead of the dangerous path he's currently on?

CHAIN REACTION

Luis Fuentes is a good boy who doesn't live with the angst that his big brothers Alex and Carlos have always lived with. Luis is smart, funny, and has big dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when he falls for the wrong girl, Luis enters a dark world he's never known and just when he thinks he's got life all figured out Luis learns some disturbing news about his family that destroys his positive outlook on life. Will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance and lure Luis to live on the edge like his new girlfriend and his own father?
