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?
For some odd reason I didn't read the first book to this series, but that's totally fine. I practically jumped at the chance to read this book and it didn't disappoint. The characters were relatable and I really like this plot with the senior year superlatives. It really shows you how you view yourself and what you think of each other.
Characters:Harper: She is the yearbook's photographer who is a jerk of a boyfriend, Aiden. Though she was a bit naive at times, I overall loved her personality. There were so many times I wanted to say 'Why are you with this, jerkface?'
I mean Aiden was really rude to Harper in how he treated her and I'm so glad she saw that he wasn't the one for her.
Brody: I was really skeptical of him because at first I didn't know how to take him. Though he did some jerky moves like being someone he knew he didn't want to be with (the same with Harper). He made me really frustrated, but he really cared about Harper and was going to fight for their relationship. BUT I SHIPPED IT!
Final Thoughts:This was a cute contemporary and very un-put-down-able with a different plot that I haven't read about.
Have you read the Superlatives series? Or anything by Jennifer Echols? If so, which one is your favorite book or one you should start first if you've never read Jennifer Echols before?
