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 have to admit, this is the first time I read Jennifer Echols' books, and I'm glad I did! This book is so cute and realistic. I'm definitely looking forward to read the other books in the Superlatives series.

The main characters, Kaye, is someone that I could connect instantly. She had everything planned for the rest of her life (thanks to her mom), and I used to be like that too until now (I already knew which high school I'll go since I'm in elementary school). Also, she's strong willed and a great leader. On the other hand, Sawyer is known as the school's bad boy, but like in many YA books, he's actually really sweet and funny! He got me everytime he said "Will you marry me?" (he's joking, but isn't it adorable?). Behind the persona, though, he has some problems with his family, and I felt really sad for him. But because of that problems, he became a hardworker. I really admired that from him.

The secondary characters are great too. Since I haven't read the other books, I didn't know much about them, but I have a feeling I'll like them. They're completely different yet they complete each other. There's Tia, the talkative one, and her boyfriend Will. Kaye's other bestfriend, Harper is the school's photographer and she's pretty quiet (compared to Tia and Kaye). The only characters I didn't like is Aidan and Kaye's mom. Both of them are bossy and even more strong willed than Kaye, and I personally didn't like someone who likes to control other people (eventhough Kaye's mom has a great purpose for controlling Kaye)

If there's one sentence to describe the romance, it would be HOLY MOTHER OF SWOON. The romance is definitely the best part in this book. Seriously, Kaye and Sawyer are really adorable together that you couldn't not ship them. There's a bit of love triangle in the beginning because Kaye already had a boyfriend, but it was clear that they were on the verge of breaking up, so don't worry.

Overall, Most Likely to Succeed is a really great book. If there's one thing that I didn't like, it would be the ending. The ending is actually cute, but I feel like it's too rushed. There's some things that left unanswered, like Sawyer's plan after he graduated. But other than that, this book is worth the read!

  2. I have seen quite a bit about this series but never thought of trying it because it seems a bit like the typical contemporary. But maybe it is worth it? And I do like when secondary characters are done well too.
