Publisher's Summary

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. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

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.

    "Enjoying... but not 5 star work~!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I found the book good but its hard to rate something like this after reading Bryce Courtney or Tolken... entertaining but not riveting.

    Story
    "Better than I thought it would be"
    Would you listen to Perfect Chemistry again? Why?

    Yes I would, I liked the story. It seems like a predictable plot, but there are twists.


    What other book might you compare Perfect Chemistry to and why?

    Romeo and Juliet I guess. Or any other story of forbidden love.


    Which character – as performed by Roxanne Hernandez and Blas Kisic – was your favorite?

    I liked alex's character the most. Blas Kisic's voice it nice and I found Roxanne's voice a little annoying at first but I got used to it.


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

    When Shelly praised Britney for standing up to their parents.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book much more than I thought I would. Just a warning that there is some harsh language, so if that bothers you, you might be offended in some parts. I loved the idea that the main characters are connected even though they come from completely different worlds.

    "The narrator can really make or break a book!"
    Any additional comments?

    The female narrator was very bad. I probably wouldnt waste a credit on this if I had it to do over.

    Story
    "NOOOO!!! male pov sounds like a robot!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Author should have used a different male narrator. There is absolutely no way i could tolerate listening to this male point of view.


    Has Perfect Chemistry turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    should NOT have used this male narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT PURCHASE this audiobook!

    Story
    "Awful female narrator, good story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I struggled to listen to this and know I would have enjoyed it much more if I just read it.


    What other book might you compare Perfect Chemistry to and why?

    A modern day Romeo and Juliet of sorts.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The female narrator portrayed the teenage girls as if they were 10 years old. The story was written better than how she voiced them. The male narrator was good.


    Was Perfect Chemistry worth the listening time?

    Not worth my listening time, but a good story to read.

    Story
    "Love conquers"
    Would you recommend Perfect Chemistry to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe with a new narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roxanne Hernandez and Blas Kisic ?

    Therese Plummer! I have hear her do a mexican accent for a male before and she nailed it. She could of also made you feel what these people were feeling unlike the narrators that this books had. They made the story fall flat and the accent was horrible for the mexicans. It could of been so much better.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is a timeless story of love overcoming boundries put upon us from all. The love (chemistry) these two had, had to overcome him being in a gang, and her being the well breed al proper Mrs. White goodie goodie. This book was good but not as good as it could of been with a better narrator and maybe a little extra work on the story line. He had alot of real potential. I have never read any from this Author before but I will be listening to the next one. My curriousity is peeked and I can tell she has talent and I want to see if she gets better.

    While I know this is consider as a Young Adult book, I would like to warn you that there are things in here that I would not let anyone under the age of 15 (mature minded 15 mind you) read, due to the nature of certain situations that are in the book.

    I cant wait to see what the next installment holds.

    "What a surprising Enjoyment"

    after reading the description of the story and it being read by 2 readers - I wasn't sure, but within the 1st 2 chapters I was hooked and did not want to stop listening. The readers were VERY good with accents and the story was very enjoyable. I LOVED the characters and am looking forward to listening to the other 2 stories about Alex's brothers.

    "Female Narrator is terrible"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I liked the story, but the female narrator was terrible. It was like listening to a middle aged Jan Brady trying to sound like a teenager. UGGHHH!

    Story
    "It grew on me..."

    At first the narrator for Brittany's voice really rubbed me the wrong way... as if she were trying too hard to sound like a teenager. But eventually, I grew used to her voice, reading style and inflection and it didn't bother me at all. I reallly liked hearing Alex's voice read by someone who speaks Spanish; he did a great job. The topics in this book aren't light and there were times that I thought the plot would become too predictable and "cheesy" but I felt the author did a good job of tackling a lot of issues with sincerity.
