Review: Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols

Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols

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?

Review: Perfect Couple is the second book in the Superlatives series and just for the record I haven't read the first book in the series Biggest Flirts and did not feel like I missed much since each book in the series will be about a different couple, although the characters from the previous book made quite a few appearances in Perfect Couple so it would have been nice to know their story as well. Also this was my first Jennifer Echols book, I've been meaning to read her books for quite some time and felt like this was a great introduction to her writing and will definitely be checking out some of her previous books and whatever she writes in the future.

So it's senior year and Brody and Harper have just been voted the Perfect Couple that Never Was. These two are complete opposites and both of them are dating someone else but after being voted Perfect Couple that Never Was they start thinking of each other in a way they never had before.

It was pretty obvious Brody and Harper weren't that into the people they were dating to begin with. Brody's relationship wasn't even serious and Harper clearly was dating a jerk so it all made it very easy to root for the two with their flirtatious ways towards each other. I wasn't a fan of how Harper thought she had to get a makeover just to get Brody's attention she was amazing the way she was and I liked that Brody let her know it in his own way when he asked her how come she doesn't wear her glasses and how he thinks she looks beautiful with them on. I loved both Harper and Brody they had great chemistry together.

There was one character that I wanted more of and am very excited to read the next book in the series ...Sawyer. This boy was just a secondary character but he is a lot of fun and I can't wait to read more about him. Another thing I liked in regards to the characters in general was the diversity.

Overall Perfect Couple is the perfect book if your looking for something fun and light with some really well developed and likable characters.
