The "Superlatives Series" is about seniors at a Florida high school who are selected for their class Who's Who categories, and how the labels change the way they view themselves and alter the course of their lives.
Most Likely to Succeed will focus on characters Kaye and Sawyer.
Thank you Simon Pulse and Edelweiss for giving me a copy of this book!
Kaye and Aiden, her boyfriend, have been nominated for Most Likely to Succeed by the senior class, which is just as well because Aiden is the president of the student council, while Kaye is the vice president. But ever since Kaye learned that there was a glitch in the results and Kaye and Sawyer were actually voted for Perfect Couple That Never Was, Kaye has been giving Sawyer more attention, and Kaye and Aiden's relationship has been going downhill. The attraction between Kaye and Sawyer is undeniable, and everyone knows it besides the two of them.
Most Likely to Succeed was one of my most anticipated books of 2015. Ever since I read Perfect Couple (the first book I read in the series), I have loved Sawyer and I was curious regarding his and Kaye's relationship. So of course, I was looking forward to this book. But when I read it, I was sadly disappointed. I must say, this is my least favorite out of the three books.
I have loved Sawyer's character since Perfect Couple and I continued to love him in this book. He was funny, charming, caring, hardworking, responsible and there's more to him than what meets the eye. Kaye, on the other hand, was whiny, annoying and bitchy, and I just couldn't help but hate her. There were times when I couldn't help rolling my eyes at Kaye's behavior because she was just too much!
The pacing of this book was moderate, but when it got to the ending, it became rushed. The whole thing happened so fast, and I was really annoyed at how it ended. Nevertheless, there were still some parts of this book that I enjoyed, especially those time that I was able to look deeper into Sawyer's character, and those times when the four from the first two books were present.
2.5 disappointing stars
