Perfect Chemistry  - Simone Elkeles

2 1/2 stars


I always go into a book excited and fully expecting to love it. I don't read synopsis' or reviews before I read a book because I like to go in blind and not be influenced. I rely completely on star ratings. (I do, however, like to read reviews when I'm finished)
I know, it's weird.

Sadly, this book didn't live up to the ratings for me.

Here's why

 

((some may think this is a little SPOILERish))

 

-The overuse of stereotypes. It felt a little 1960's blatant.

-The overuse of spanish phrases. These did not make me feel the story was more authentic.

-The overuse of Brittany striving for perfection. It basically came down to only her looks and it became too repetitive.
