Perfect Couple is #2 in the Superlatives series about seniors at a Florida high school who are selected for their class's superlative categories in the yearbook, and how the labels change the way they view themselves and alter the course of their lives.

Can your heart be put to a popular vote?

As yearbook photographer, Harper is responsible for capturing those candid moments that make high school memorable. But her own life is anything but picture perfect. Her parents' bitter divorce has left her wondering what a loving relationship would look like. And ever since the senior class voted her and star quarterback Brody the “Perfect Couple That Never Was,” her friends have been on her case to ask Brody out.

Brody doesn’t lack in female admirers, but Harper can't see herself with him. He seems confused about why they were matched together, too. They’re total opposites—the last people in the world who would ever be compatible, let alone the “perfect couple.” Yet ever since the class paired the two of them, they've found themselves drawn together--first by curiosity, then by an undeniable bond.

The trouble is, though they're very attracted to each other and both of them admit this, they have a hard time getting along or even communicating clearly. If they’re the perfect couple, this shouldn’t be so difficult! Soon it becomes clear their class was wrong, and they throw in the towel. But after they walk away, both of them feel so changed from making the effort that they can’t forget each other. What if that means this match made in hell is the perfect couple after all? 



I can tell why so many love Jennifer Echols they are addictive, always filled with drama, suspense and of course, romance. I know I said this about few books, but this is type of series that you won’t want to put down, no matter what. Every page, sentence had me craving for more. I love Echol’s writing style; she has a way with details, which hooks you from the start till the very end. Readers won’t be able to help themselves but fall in love with the characters and get captivated in the story. I know that I was. There was even few times where I found myself reading before work, during my break because I couldn’t get enough, I needed what was going to happen next. I was curious to see if Harper would actually end up with Brody. Perfect Couple seemed more intense, with more drama going on then first book in series Biggest Flirts which I read over the summer. My type of a book.

I wasn’t sure if I liked Harper & Brody’s relationship at first. That was mostly because of Brody, it was hard for me to like him for half of book, of how he acted and how he treated the girls. What he did, to me I had feeling that he used them and once he got tired of them, he ditched them. I was afraid that it’s what he might do with Harper and I liked Harper, didn’t want for her to get hurt. There were quite intense, steamy moments between the two of them though the book and I felt that it was only reason he was hooking up with her, that Brody just wanted one thing from Harper. Maybe at first I didn’t see an actual attraction between two of them, I felt like two of them were hooking up because they got voted for Perfect Couple. As the book progressed, I could clearly see that two of them cared deeply for one another. Even after they found out there were mix up in voting, that it happened by a mistake. I waited for Harper to come to her senses, Brody too and see that two of them belonged with each other. Despite their differences, the two of them had a connection, a bond. All through the book I was rooting for them and was eager to see where their relationship would lead next.

It’s not often I disliked characters in books, but it this case there were two characters I couldn’t bring myself to like. Kennedy. I hated how controlling he was, and mostly how he treated his own girlfriend. He didn’t treat her like a girlfriend half of the time, he was mad half of time, bossy. I didn’t know what Harper even saw in him. Especially way he treated her because she broke up with him, which was not right and not fair to Harper. However, I was glad that she finally stood up to him; she shouldn’t let him treat her like this to begin with. I was glad to see what was coming for him. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t bring myself to like him in any shape or form; I kind of hoped that he would end up getting fired from yearbook after the stunt he pulled with Harper. And of course Harper was my favorite in this book, she was caring, responsible. She’s a type of person that I would be friends with. I was happy to see that she got her happily ever after.

Series worth every page. Loved that it had expert from the next book Most Likely To Succeed Sawyer’s book who I learned to love while reading Perfect Couple, I can’t wait to read his & Kaye’s story. See what’s in store for them.
