    "Best romance novels with punk, emo and skater characters was what i needed. I found perfect chemistry, a great book of Brittany Ellis and a gang member Alex Fuentes who try to work past their differences."

    "So I didn’t think I was going to like this. But my friend kept on pushing to read it because she couldn’t stop talking about it and I was always asking her to stop talking about it. So I broke down and started to read it because I like this friend. We’ve been friends forever. And I found out I loved this book. I can’t stop talking about it. It’s just not the hot parts either. The story is interesting too."

    "The female lead character is a senior in high school, and this book definitely caters to that demographic. Written from both points of views, the characters are pretty stereotypical and all play an exaggerated and somewhat unrealistic role. However, there is sarcasm and wit, flirting, and tasteful romance for a reader that doesn't care too much about inherent depth or plot."

    "Perfect Chemistry is love story with a twist. I loved the characters in the book. Brittany is the typical good girl and Alex is the typical bad boy. It's a great story of of love and looking past stereotypes."

    "This book has the young adult/high school or college feel to it. The story is good and is a solid read. This will be more catered to females in my opinion but still overall a generally good story."

    "Let me start of saying i've never been a romance reader but this just sealed my fate. It's so incredibly cheesy. I pretty much just cringed the whole time reading this. I wouldn't recommend this unless you like the reading structure of a 3rd grader. No thank you!"

    "Brittany Ellis is the most popular, perfect girl at Fairfield High school. She has to project the image that she and her family is perfect but she and her entire family has plenty of imperfections. Her mother is mean, her father is never mentally present whenever he is home, and her sister has a mental slowness. So Brittany has to pretend to be the most perfect girl in town. Alex Fuentes is the most thoughtful and loving gang member you will ever meet. He pretends to be tough and mean but deep down he has a huge heart. He's in Latino Blood to keep his family safe, and younger brothers away from gangs. He never did anything for himself. Throw them together in chemistry and force them to become partners, this happens"

    "Oh man, Oh man. Honestly, at first I didn't know what I would get out of this book. While I love me some romance books, I also love a well laid out background on characters and a story line that flows - not bounces. Well I got all of that and more with this book. The characters were actually believable. I loved the journey they went on. Watching Brittany let Alex into her life in a way she's let no one else in before, really helped you see just what was hiding behind the "Perfect Brittany". "

    "This book was certainly less cliche than most YA novels without alienating its core readership. The characters were well written and the story compelling enough to keep you reading. It was very mature in the way it dealt with one of the main characters being a gang member with questionable morals as it didn't judge just told a story."

    "I thought the idea for this type of romance novel was a nice twist from the usual romance novel. Having the two characters from different settings ending up working with each other on a chemistry project was a fun change from what is typical for the genre. I would recommend giving this book a read, especially if you like the romance genre, a solid story and setting. "

    "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. i bare the same name Ellis, i love this very much because it helps to choose a right partner"

    "I'll rate this 3.5 because I may not be the target demographic of this author. I think it would probably satisfy young adults more. A little too much flash in this author's style and not enough grittiness."

    "There are a lot of young adult romance novels out there, and so I'm hesitant to declare this title one of the best. But I really enjoyed reading the story of an unlikely duo from different sides of the tracks. I think I'll give this book to my daughter when she's old enough to appreciate it. "
