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?

My Thoughts:

This is the third and final book in The Superlatives series. It started with Biggest Flirts, which I liked. Next there was  Perfect Couple which I liked even more. And now we have my favorite, Most Likely to Succeed!

This one has the same fun flirty feel with a little something deeper that I love from Jennifer Echols books. I think there are two main things that made this one my favorite.

1. Sawyer: Over the first two books he quickly became the character I wanted to know more about. From the bits and pieces we get, it’s clear there’s more to him and his story. I was so excited for him to finally be in the spotlight. Also, I loved his more lighthearted manner in relation to Kaye’s structured and stress life. I couldn’t wait to see how they would interact.

2. Returning Characters: This whole series really focuses on the same group of friends… there are just different “couples” in the spotlight each time. I loved that I knew all the characters so well from previous books. It was like a treat to see them again, now that I’ve read their “get together” story.

Jennifer Echols is one of my favorite authors. I love her style and her stories. I highly suggest picking up anything by her!

    I’m really curious about this one myself. I read Perfect Couple, which I enjoyed but didn’t love. But I was REALLY intrigued by Sawyer, so I will have to read this one for sure.

    Glad you liked it!
