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 had so much fun with the first book in the series that there was just no way I could pass up the chance to read the second and get even more of the characters I had fun with in the first. And even though I got this book months in advance of the release date, I couldn't help but start it right away.
I think I very well might have liked this even more than the first, I might have liked Brody and Harper's story more than Tia and Will's (but don't tell them that).
This really is a cute feel good series that is so perfect for those hard and dark dystopian or UF reads. When you just need something light and smile inducing to put you back on track and ready for whatever read comes next afterward.
My only complaint believe it or not, is that I actually wanted more Sawyer. I loved him in the first book and loved him even more in this one. I am so hoping book three will be all about him and a certain cheerleader that I think he would be “perfect” for.
