Publisher's 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 south sider is Luis' 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' 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?

    Story
    "this is a great book 3in an even better series."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Chain Reaction to be better than the print version?

    I only read audio because i feel a narator can capture a book much better than a print version. I def feel this book is much better read in the audio formatt.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chain Reaction?

    Every moment in this book keeps you on the edge of your seat. This whole series is a never ending adventure.


    What does Roxanne Hernandez and Blas Kisic bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Both narators in this book truly bring it to life. Blas brings an energy and a dangerous edge to reading that i have verry rarely heard befor. Roxanne also brings a good note to this book. Her naration brings the whole story together. You truly get the action and flirtation in full by hearing there wonderful telling of this story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The over all story in general. This book as well as all in the series are true to charactor. the author makes it verry easy to forget you are reading a book. At the end you feel as if you were living real events with real people.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read menny books and menny series. I loved a lot of them but this series are on a whole new level. The charactors are real and the story line is true to life. I have enjoyed reading something different. If you love good naration, action, romance and something unique than pick this up.

    Story
    "Love these characters!"

    As with all the books in this series, I loved the characters and loved following characters from previous books in this series. I was sucked into the story but felt disappoint at a certain issue that was underdeveloped and never specifically "answered". All in all, a fun read and totally worth the purchase!

    "I LOVE THIS SERIES"

    I have really enjoyed this series...I wish there were more...I fell in love with this family and the girls they ended up with. I love the loyality that these boys/men had for their families and girls. I loved that they were NOT perfect and had REAL issues to work through.
    I recommend this series for anyone wanting a nice listen with a great story about relationships and family. (with some toughness)
