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 and Sawyer. I think I was looking forward to them the most out of the superlatives couples. They lived up to my cuteness expectations. I loved them together and how awkward them getting together was. Plenty of misunderstandings a foot.
Kaye is my favorite character in the series and I was excited to finally be in her POV. It sometimes it seems like she lets Aidan and her mom push her around. Really though I think she is to tired for big confrontations. She has her own victories like being captain of the cheerleading squad. (which they audition in front of the school I thought that was interesting. ) I think of Kaye as more of the picking your battles type. She might not always handle stress the best but she is a very strong and intelligent girl.
Sawyer balances Kaye out because he is more relaxed. He’s that smart kid that doesn’t have to try. You know that one that frustrates other smart kids because he hardly works for it. The only thing with Sawyer is you would never know it. He’s more of a class clown and holds his cards close to his chest. He has not had an easy life but he manages to stay awesome. I loved when he explained to Kaye why he choose to clean up his act.
I liked the family aspect. Kaye and her mother butt heads quite frequently. Her mom came from a bad neighborhood and even though she is able to provide her kids with a good life she wants them to understand where she came from. My parents were similar so I could understand her mom on this. Of course my parents aren’t driving me to the South Side to show me their old neighborhoods that are bad now, Kaye’s mom takes it the next level. It’s a good example of a mother daughter relationship that is close but not best friend style. Her mom pushes her because she wants the best for her and the world can be a cold place. Although I was getting mad ather mom too.
I really liked this one. I think it’s definitely my favorite of the series. You could easily read this as a standalone if you really wanted to. There is enough information to get the gist of the other books. So if you like the series, this is a good one, if you are curious about the series. This is a good one.
