Summary (Provided by Goodreads): 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?
I really loved Biggest Flirts and enjoyed Perfect Couple. I love series that visit different characters so they’re connected but not the same. I was really excited to read this one. As I’ve said before, the covers don’t wow me, the stories are really good.
What I thought
This book was just as cute as the others! It was fun to get to revisit the characters from the other books and then follow the new characters.
Most Likely to Succeed is about Sawyer and Kaye. Kaye is dating Aidan and they were both voted Most Likely to Succeed. Aidan is school president and Kaye is vice president. In the previous book, you find out that Sawyer has a crush on Kaye.
I found this book to be a bit predictable. Like, I knew what this book was going to be about and how it was going to play out before I even read it. However, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t enjoyable. I love Sawyer and found Kaye growing on me as the book went on.
The only thing that was a bit annoying was their issues. There was a lot of “if you actually talked to the person you wouldn’t be having problems!” problems. I think those can be the most frustrating because it causes issues that definitely don’t need to be issues. I also really did not like Kaye’s parents. I know that we weren’t supposed to like them much but still feel like they wanted the best for her. In actuality, I just thought that they were mean and stupid.
The ending of this book let me down a little bit too. Considering that this is the last book of the series, I expected a little more conclusion. It seemed like it just ended. I wish there had been an epilogue or a few more chapters or just something more. I didn’t have a problem with the events at the end of the book, I just wish that it had been a bit more.
