Book one in the Girls Most Likely to…
Ten years after being voted Most Likely to Succeed, Kelsey Moore is still living in her hometown, still working in her family’s flower shop, and too embarrassed to attend her high school reunion. Only the chance to reconnect with her study buddy—and secret crush—Nathan Barrow tempts her to go.
Nathan isn’t sure why he came back for the reunion after spending the past decade working abroad. But when he runs into his former lab partner, Kelsey, he’s sure glad he did. The chemistry between them is as potent as ever, and when she offers him a weekend of wild, no-strings-attached sex, Nathan knows he’d be a fool to say no.
Nathan can’t be tied to one place for long. But the more time they spend together—in and out of bed—the more Kelsey wonders if their reunion could become something more permanent. That is, if Nathan is still interested when he finds out she’s been less than honest with him about her life since graduation…
In Girl Most Likely to Succeed by Kate Davies is a deliciously sexy novella that is sweet yet incredibly hot.
Kelsey Moore’s life did not exactly take the path she wanted after high school graduation so she is not exactly thrilled about attending her ten year reunion. Especially when she learns her high school guy pal and secret crush Nathan Barrow is going to be there. But Kelsey’s best friend and event coordinator Tess persuades her to attend and Nathan and Kelsey’s first meeting proves to be quite revealing…
Kelsey and Nathan are wonderfully developed characters and the sexual chemistry between them is off the charts smoking hot. Voted Most Likely to succeed in high school, Kelsey had to give up her dream of going to college to help out her mother. Still working in the family flower shop ten years later, Kelsey is dealing with self-esteem issues stemming from her lack of higher education. Nathan has a successful career that is quite satisfying. While he loves his job, the extensive traveling and lack of a home base is beginning to wear on him.
Girl Most Likely to Succeed is a short read, but Kate Davies does an excellent job building a believable relationship between Kelsey and Nathan. Their sex scenes are varied, plentiful and exquisitely sensual. An overall delightful romance and wonderful beginning to the Girls Most Likely to… series.
