"Most Likely to Succeed" [Girls Most Likely to... Series, Book 1] by Kate Davies

My Book Summary : When Kelsey graduated, she was known as the Girl voted Most Likely to Succeed. However, ever since then she has been feeling that was a cursed placed on her, especially because of family obligations she was never able to go to college let alone find a way out of her hometown. Now ten years later, her 10-year high school reunion is happening the following weekend and her best friend Tess--who is putting together the reunion--talks Kelsey into going. Soon she'll get to see her high school crush and old lab partner, Nathan, again--will she be able to get over her fears of what she feels are her past failures? Or will she let past regrets get in the way of something wonderful?

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Two high school friends learn that their feelings for each other have only grown over the years. I liked the moral of this novel, which was that it doesn't matter about everyone else's opinion of you but what you think about yourself. Also, Kelsey and Nathan made a very fun and sweet pair.

However, I felt that this novel rushed through all the scenes that weren't about Kelsey and Nathan hooking up. It seemed like there could of been more added to this novel to make it come together a little better.

Therefore, I don't recommend this novel but if you decide on reading it then you should know it is for those who like contemporary romances.

Book Teaser(s) :
“I want you,” she gasped. “Want you so much.”
“Feeling’s mutual,” he growled, lifting her other leg so she was wrapped completely around him. He turned and strode toward the bedroom, carrying a laughing Kelsey in his arms.
A few steps inside and his knees hit the edge of the mattress, so he tipped forward, dropping Kelsey gently onto the bed. She grinned up at him, arms raised. “Hey, gorgeous,” she said.
“I think that’s my line.” She scooted backward until her head reached the pillows. He climbed onto the bed, stretched out over her and leaned down for another kiss.
He had intended it to be soft and slow, to build the tension again. But the best of intentions disappeared as the kiss turned hot and wet and more than a little dirty. Kelsey scrabbled at his shirt, dragging the hem out of his jeans and tugging it until it bunched under his arms.
“Off, off, I want it off,” she mumbled against his lips. “Need your skin. Now.”
Hell, he could get on board with that. Sitting up until he was on his knees, straddling her body, he pulled his shirt off over his head and tossed it on the floor.
She reached up and stroked one hand down his chest. “Damn, were you really hiding this under those lab coats all those years?”
He grinned and shook his head. “Trust me, I was a late bloomer.”
“Well, you’ve blossomed quite nicely, Mr. Barrow.” ~ within Chapter 4
“But I certainly didn’t live up to my potential,” she retorted.
“You could say the same thing about me,” Bree reminded her. “Unwed teen mom, blah blah blah. Am I a failure in your eyes?”
Kelsey’s mouth dropped open. “Of course not!”
“Then cut yourself some slack.” Bree eyed her closely. “Unless Nathan’s said or done something to make you feel this way, in which case, my rusty knife has an appointment with his balls.”
Kelsey coughed, waving a hand in front of her face. “Oh, God, Bree, don’t do that! You’re killing me here.”
Bree shrugged. “I’m just saying.” ~ within Chapter 6
