In this sequel to Perfect Chemistry we meet tough-talking Carlos Fuentes, who has just moved to Colorado from Mexico to live with his older brother, Alex, in order to finish out his senior year of high school. Kiara Westford is a clever, tomboyish, outdoorsy girl with a propensity for fixing up cars. As a peer guide to new students, Kiara is paired up with Carlos in order to acquaint him with his new surroundings, though once she meets Carlos she is no longer looking forward to the assignment. Carlos had hoped to distance himself from his gang affiliations in Mexico, but in only a matter of days someone has set him up for a drug bust at his new school, and he is required to live with Professor Westford, who also happens to be Kiara’s father, as part of his release agreement. Carlos and Kiara: now under the same roof?

Rules of Attraction is painfully similar in formula to Perfect Chemistry, although Kiara is thankfully somewhat more fleshed out and human-like than Brittany. Carlos and Kiara’s relationship seems to periodically jump to new intensities with nothing leading up to it, leaving me wondering several times if I had missed something. Their relationship feels flat and empty.
