About the book:

Book one of 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…

21,000 words

While I enjoyed the characters, there was just something lacking in this story. I don’t think that there was enough time to make it believable that Kelsey and Nathan would actually continue to be a couple past their weekend fling. The story is well written and extremely sexy, but just not fleshed out enough. A lot of the time the Kelsey is interacting with her friends (who also have books that happen at the same time) which took away from what was happening between Kelsey and Nathan. Because I did like the characters I wish there had been more to this story.
