In this sexy conclusion to The Superlatives trilogy from Endless Summer author Jennifer Echols, Sawyer and Kaye might just be perfect for each other—if only they could admit it.
As vice president of Student Council, Kaye knows the importance of keeping order. Not only in school, but in her personal life. Which is why she and her boyfriend, Aidan, already have their lives mapped out: attend Columbia University together, pursue banking careers, and eventually get married. Everything Kaye has accomplished in high school—student government, cheerleading, stellar grades—has been in preparation for that future.
To his entire class, Sawyer is an irreverent bad boy. His antics on the field as school mascot and his love of partying have earned him total slacker status. But while he and Kaye appear to be opposites on every level, fate—and their friends—keep conspiring to throw them together. Perhaps the seniors see the simmering attraction Kaye and Sawyer are unwilling to acknowledge to themselves…
As the year unfolds, Kaye begins to realize her ideal life is not what she thought. And Sawyer decides it’s finally time to let down the facade and show everyone who he really is. Is a relationship between them most likely to succeed—or will it be their favorite mistake?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If you read my short review for Perfect Couple, the second book in the Superlatives series, then you know that I have been waiting for Most Likely to Succeed because I have been crushing on Sawyer and I wanted him to have his own story and eeeeek! I liked it so much!
We know from the previous books that Sawyer is the clown and the one who gets around with girls, if you get my drift here. What we got to read in this book was how vulnerable and how real he truly is as a person and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel for him throughout the book. I want to hug him and tell him that things will get better for him because I don’t want him sad! He is much more than people at school give him credit for—he’s very school smart! I think Kaye brought out the Sawyer that wants to have a better future. He wants to be good enough for her and we all know that Kaye is thriving to have good grades to go to Columbia.
The thing with Kaye is that she has this awful boyfriend *shudders* and I can’t comprehend why she stayed with him for so long. Seriously, this guy puts her down all the time and ugh, I don’t like him. Point is that Kaye would get ordered around a lot by her boyfriend and by her mom, a whole lot more than a teen should. I felt for her but was also frustrated with her because she wouldn’t stick up for herself as much as she should have but Sawyer would be there for her and he loved her curls a lot, which in my opinion is points in favor for this guy.
In this final installment, we get to see all of the amazing characters from the previous books, which I must admit I will miss, but not as much as Sawyer. I will miss his character a lot! I missed his funny character a bit in this book. I wish there had been a balance between his vulnerable side and his funny side but I still enjoyed the book! This was a great ending to a great series and I hope you guys enjoy this one as much as I did 🙂
