The third and last book in the superlatives follows the third friend, Kaye, and Sawyer. Kaye is the overachiever, student council rise president, level headed, and the most goal oriented of the three friends. She's already dating Aidan and everyone thinks of them as the perfect couple. Yes, I know I know.. you guessed it right, now enter the bad boy, Sawyer in this case. However I highly enjoyed this novel because I really liked Sawyer in the previous two books as as secondary character. I also never really get sick of the good girl bad boy plot line. As long as it's written well, who am I to complain about it? Jennifer Echols nailed it right and I loved the conflict she created within this book and just how real and faulty and frustratingly teenager-y this characters are.
I really liked Kaye. The thing I liked the most about her is that she didn't feel obligated to meet everyone's expectations. The moment she felt that this or that isn't right for her, that was the end of it. Her mother is very controlling and I was happy that she was able to respectfully stick up to herself from time to time. Sometimes parents don't understand exactly how different the world runs from when they were back in high school.. and I'm sure we won't understand that when we have kids too. Sawyer though, he was just so adorable and cute. I generally don't like the bad boy/class clown characters but Sawyer's was endearing. I loved how vulnerable Echols made him to be.. and not the typical "oh he's a bad boy because he has issues and that's why he's lashing out". Sawyer isn't really a bad boy per say, but he does have a reputation that preceded him when he transferred to this current school. I just loved how different his character was from usual love interests.
Most Likely to Succeed is my second favourite book after Biggest Flirts. I was in the biggest reading slump due to my school stress but once I started it, I ended up finishing it in two days. I definitely recommend The Superlatives trilogy, and you can also read them out of order, however I recommend you read them in order and purchase all three at the same time, or atleast after you read and liked the first one, because you're going to want to binge read them all.
