I ask you. Is there anyone who writes…. bad boy meets good girl – good girl reforms bad boy…better than Simone Elkeles? I think not.
Sure the books are a tad formulaic. You know exactly what you’re going to get but time and time again I get sucked in, pulse pounding, nervous about the outcome because she writes her characters with such heart. They have flaws, there is much teenage angst and longing (with a liberal dose of lust just shy of needing a cold shower) and of course redemption.
Perfect Chemistry still remains my favorite Simone Elkeles novel. It made me happy for days and days. I was happy as a clam when Brittney & Alex showed up in Rules of Attraction. Love, love, love when author let us know how past characters are doing.
So predictable or not I’ll be running to get the next Simone Elkeles book as soon as it comes out.
To me she’s pure comfort food in the world of YA fiction, I can always count on Simone.
