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?

Review  

Most Likely To Succeed by Jennifer Echols is the conclusion to the Superlatives series and what a conclusion it was. I thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining and innocent short read and I cannot wait to read the first two books; Biggest Flirts and Perfect Couple. This New Adult Contemporary Romance was not necessarily an original concept but the writing, the characters and the chemistry between the star couple in this book made me giddy and swoony all at the same time, so I can only imagine the effect this series would have on teens. 

"The Perfect Couple That Never Was," that's what the majority of the student population thought of Kaye and Sawyer, but it seemed that Kaye never entertained the possibility...after all she's been with her long-term boyfriend, Aidan for 3 years, but when the polls are returned, she can't help but start looking at Sawyer in a different way. 

Jennifer Echol's character creation was truly amazing and I loved the realistic characters that I had a sneaking suspicion that these characters were loosely based on people that Jennifer knew. I loved the characters interaction and chemistry and Jennifer does a wonderful job in capturing teens in their true light. I can literally write pages on how much I love the characters, the character creation, the chemistry and interactions and on and on but I won't bore you all, just know that the characters made this book for me.

Sawyer and Kaye had a sweet, innocent kind of love but they had so many things and people blocking their way to happiness, but they deal with it well throughout the book. I loved how they persevered with their relationship despite knowing that maybe it would be easier to go their separate ways. I really felt that they dealt with most of the trials in a well and mature manner, and I'm so glad they got their happily ever after. 

I loved the friendship between Harper, Tia and Kaye, I enjoyed the fact that they weren't your typical group of girls who all had the same interests, I really liked that Harper loves photography, Tia a bit of a playgirl and Kaye the popular cheer leader but despite their major differences they were still best friends. It's like their friendship has overcome the high school pressure from other peers and groups. 

I also enjoyed the parts where we find out more about Sawyer and Kaye's history, I liked the revelations throughout the book e.g. why Kaye's Mum is the way she is, why Sawyer is the way he is to his Father etc. 

Most Likely to Succeed is well-written with addictive characters that you want to pick up other books in the series immediately just to continue to live with them and feel the chemistry between them all. I sped through this book. From the very beginning, at the first Student Council meeting I felt the connection and chemistry between Kaye and Sawyer, that's why I couldn't put the book down, however, I was quite disappointed with the abrupt ending, this is truly the only complaint I have for this book. Having said that I will still continue to read Jennifer Echols books as this is a minor complaint compared to the enjoyment I have had in reading her books.
