Synopsis from Goodreads:
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?
What I Thought:
I received an Advanced Review copy from the publisher Simon & Schuster Canada in exchange for an honest review.
Luckily I read the second book recently, because I was so excited to dive into this book and see what happens with Kaye and Sawyer! I liked him since the first book and I really felt like he deserved his own romantic story.
The two were really cute together. They had problems during the whole book, but honestly I really wanted things to work out for them. They both have their own problems. Kaye has an intense mother who keeps pushing her to do better without listening, and a boyfriend who wants everything done his way and doesn’t really seem like he cares for her. Aidan is a total douche throughout the whole book and I really felt like he didn’t deserve her. Sawyer’s got problems inside and outside of school. I won’t mention all of them in case I ruin anything. But I admit I really liked them together, probably my favourite coupe so far.
Yet again I do have to mention that I don’t like the models for the cover. It’s hard to make everyone like it, I’ll admit, but when you add characters people think of them while reading. But I’ve had a problem since the first book solely because they don’t look at all like their descriptions. Sawyer is supposed to be blonde in this one for instance. I agree with how the model looks, but they could have at least photoshopped his hair. As far as I can tell Kaye is fine, but I don’t remember past descriptions of her in other books, and this one wasn’t as through.
I have to admit that this is a fun series filled with romance, but also full of hardship and some harder stuff. I definitely plan on reading more by this author in the future.
