Most Likely to Succeed (Superlatives #3)

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Realistic FictionRate: Loved it 

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?
Kaye is super organized and as class vice president, she likes things “just so”  When her boyfriend, Aiden, overrules everything she does as class president, you wonder when she will stand up to him. They are nominated as “Couple Most Likely to Succeed” and well, the rest is history.  Except that maybe, they really aren’t since the results were counted wrong and Sawyer and Kaye were voted “Perfect Couple That Never Was”
As a cheerleader, she interacts with Sawyer a great deal since he is the school mascot.  Dressed up as a Pelican, he easily disarms Kaye with his easy ways but when he is not in unifrom, he tends to be a bit harder.   Kaye does pay more attention to Sawyer when she learns of the voting mishap but finds that he really is a much better choice than Aiden.
I loved the interaction between the pair and how Echols portrays these teens and their day-to-day lives.  Not much has changed since I was in high school (ages ago) except technology.  Families still try to control their young adults and these teens try to become adults when at times they should just be teens.  This is the third book in the series but can easily be read alone although it is best to read them in order since the characters are interconnected.
