Publisher Comments:

 Nothing ever came between sisters Alice and Charlie.
 
But then their lives are ripped apart when their parents divorce, and their mother marries again so quickly they don’t even get refills on champagne. Richard Flood (the third) has major skeletons in his closet: a wife and a daughter—now dead—both from a previous life that still haunts him. Reserved, slightly older Alice and feisty, younger Charlie don’t trust their stepfather, and they dread moving to his summer estate in the old-money coastal town of Serenity Point, Connecticut—a place they refuse to like and where they know they’ll never belong.
 
Friends didn’t.
 
The sisters promise to stand by each other for the rest of the summer.  Come Labor Day, they’ll be shipped off to boarding school. But their arrival at Serenity Point disrupts the power dynamics of the carefully constructed summer social scene.
 
Boys couldn’t.
 
For Tommy and Jude, the sisters reopen old wounds and reignite a vicious rivalry. For Cybill, they’re a reminder that some memories never stay buried. These are friends the girls aren’t sure they can trust—and boys they know they shouldn’t.
 
Their family falling apart never would.
 
Before Alice and Charlie can begin to understand the rules that come along with money, the depth of their strange family history, and just how closely they’re connected to their dead stepsister Camilla, they’re sucked into this strange and seductive life. A life that threatens to tear them apart the harder they fight to stick together. A life they can’t help but hate, and can’t help but love.
 
Until they got to Serenity Point.
 
In a world built on secrets and lies, it’s going to be hard to stay innocent.
 
THE INNOCENTS is the first in a series of young adult novels that weave a saga of nail-biting drama, breathless romance, and gothic mystery. 

Synopsis:

The final book in the Perfect Chemistry trilogy now in paperback

Synopsis:

Simone Elkeles' New York Times best-selling series—a unique urban twist on the classic star-crossed lovers story—is now repackaged with a fresh new cover.

Synopsis:

Even the innocent don't kiss and tell...
 
“…the quick pacing will keep readers engrossed in this series kickoff as Alice and Charlie try to sort through the soap opera that is their new lives and figure out who they can trust. Its Gossip Girl for Connecticuts Gold Coast.” –Publishers Weekly
 

The Innocents weaves a saga of nail-biting drama, breathless romance, and gothic mystery perfect for fans of ABC's Revenge.

 

Though they share the same blood, Alice and Charlie couldnt be more different. Alice is older (by one year and one day), shy and reserved, a cool blonde, a painter, a reader, a thinker. Charlie is feisty and uninhibited, a wild brunette, the kind of girl who punches a bully right in the mouth. They hate each other. They love each other. They stand by each other, when no one else will. Theyre sisters.
 
Then their parents divorce. Soon, Alice, Charlie, and their mother are leaving their old life behind. Theyre saying goodbye to their cramped Cambridge apartment and driving along the rocky Connecticut coastline—to their stepfather's summer estate in the wealthy town of Serenity Point.
 
The minute they drive through the gates, they wish they never had. Their arrival reopens old wounds, memories of lost loves, best friends—and bitter rivals. The people of Serenity Point thought the past was dead and buried. They were wrong.

Synopsis:

Continuing all the steamy romance in her New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, Simone Elkeles wraps up of the Fuentes brothers family saga with a new twist... this time a good boy goes bad when Luis Fuentes, the younger brother Alex and Carlos, meets Nikki Cruz, a girl with a troubled past who lives life on the edge. After learning a long-held secret about his family, can smart, funny Luis find his way through this newly dark world to the bright future he always dreamed of? Or will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance?

This book is the 3rd to Simone Elkeles Perfect Chemistry series. I have loved every one. The stories are so realistic and I can relate to them all. I found them each hard to put down. I mean, they are hilarious and heart-stopping and just bursting with young love and drama. I can't get enough which is why I read them over and over. Its amazing how caught up you can get even a second time reading it. With one POV male and the other female you get both sides of the story and there's so much more captured in the book that way. You know both characters feelings and thoughts. The story has more depth that way. This is a story sure to make you smile at some point.
