Goodreads Synopsis: A fresh, urban twist on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers.
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.
Fate's thoughts: This book is amazing. It's about Alex and Brittany. On the outside it may seem that they are polar opposites, but if you look closer you realize that they share a lot of things in common. When they're partnered in chemistry on the first day of school, they re not very thrilled. As they get to know each other they slowly fall for each other. My favorite thing in this book was how long it took for Brittany and Alex to fall for each other. It was slow and realistic. I also loved the ending. It was my favorite part of the story. It fit and wasn't random, although i kind of predicted some of it. All in all this book is amazing and i recommend it for anyone that likes emotion and romance.
