Publisher's Summary

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?

Fun read

I really enjoyed the characters in the story (and the entire series). Some parts weren't entirely believable and others weren't developed as much as I'd hoped, but that didn't stop be from being totally sucked into the story!

Lacked intensity

Any additional comments?

The story lacked the intensity the other two books had. I was kind of bored actually until near the end where there was some level of suspense. Overall, the book was just ok for me.

I enjoyed this as much as the 1st...looking forward to the 3rd...Love the Fuentes brothers.
Love the Loyality of family and it is very easy to lost in these stories.

Another Great Book!

Would you listen to Rules of Attraction again? Why?

Yes. The first book was great. Now I just have to know what is going on with the rest of the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dick, the father. He was so cool. Seems he had a handle on things.

Have you listened to any of Roxanne Hernandez and Blas Kisic ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The first book. The narrators rock in this book. Spot on!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did smile a lot at the general attitude and playfulness of the characters. Think I really enjoyed the dough fight.

Any additional comments?

Audible rocks. You really give us your best efforts.

Love this trilogy and can't wait for the final book. but I wished the audio book had a full cast of voices or different voices reading the stories.
