Waiting on Wednesday (1)


This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 


Chain Reaction 
by Simone Elkeles 
Release Date: August 16th
Summary: 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?


I honestly can't wait for Chain Reaction to come out! I loved all of Simone Elkeles's books and I've read Perfect Chemistry and Rules of Attraction more than once because they were soooo good! There's just something about the Fuentes guys that I just can't get enough of. Good thing there's only two weeks until this books comes out! Can't wait! 

What is everyone else waiting for? Please share!

  2. I've heard of this author, but extreme romance isn't my thing. (At least, from the steamy cover, I'm assuming this is a romance.) :p I do love the characters' names, though.

    Happy Wednesday!

  8. This book sounds good. Thanks for introducing me to it. Love the cover too. As for me, I'm waiting on Jill Sorenson's latest romantic suspense to come out. She'a an author in my romance writer's group and I really enjoy her stories.

  27. I really love Simone Elkes, but I feel like I've already read this story twice now. I'm definitely going to read it (probably devour it just like the other two) but I do wish she'd write something else for me to devour.
