In this second book in The Superlatives trilogy from Endless Summer author Jennifer Echols, Harper and Brody think they’re an unlikely match—but the senior class says they belong together.

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

Brody doesn’t lack female admirers, but Harper can't see herself with him. He’s confused about the match too. Yet they find themselves drawn together—first by curiosity about why the class paired them, then by an undeniable bond.

The trouble is, though they’re attracted to each other, they have a hard time getting along or even communicating well. 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 they feel so changed from making the effort, they can’t forget each other. What if this match made in hell is the perfect couple after all?

I just love these types of stories. The ones with two unlikely people that do become the perfect couple.

Plot: It senior year and all the seniors are voting for their classmates. After being voted perfect couple, Brody and Harper take it in as a joke. Then they start to fall for each other. I really admired this plot. I felt it deepen with emotions and real life decisions. This plot goes further then just senior year but what they want for their future.

Friendship/Love: Sometimes things don’t always go as well plan. That seemed to be the case with Brody and Harper. They both had girlfriend/boyfriend ( I don’t like the whole aspect of cheating, but they are in high school, not married, etc.) so them coming to the decisions of what is best is a hard to read. They must face their feelings, their friends/family as well as themselves.

Ending: The ending ended as expected. It gave me that feel good moment of watching everything come together.

Overall, I really love this series. I can’t wait to read the next book and see what couple will be together next.

Happy Reading!
