4.5 Stars!

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 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 to 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 eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review* 

I have been WAITING for Sawyer's story since I first met him in book one of this series and MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED does not disappoint! 

In case there was any confusion, this is the line for Sawyer...
Behind me.

There's been a lot of talk about the need for diversity in YA books and this is the first (contemporary) series I've come across recently, that does diversity and does it WELL. From the covers to the characters to the stories they tell. Readers are guaranteed to find at least one character then can identify with.

All three of the books in this series include Jennifer Echols' signature banter and romantic tension, but Kaye and Sawyer do not have it easy, that's for sure. Whether it's his reputation, her mother's need for control or Kaye's desire to always do what's expected, these two are in for a bumpy albeit entertaining ride! 

The rest of the SUPERLATIVES cast appears too making for a well-rounded reading experience.The ending felt abrupt. I was hoping that was because there would be one final book, even a novella/epilogue that takes place at graduation or right after, but it doesn't appear so.

Still, MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED makes great addition to THE SUPERLATIVES series!

Favorite Quote:  "I have an excellent memory for turning down money."
