In this second book in The Superlatives trilogy from Endless Summer author Jennifer Echols, Harper and Brody think they’re an unlikely match, but the senior class says they belong together.

As yearbook photographer, Harper is responsible for those candid moments that make high school memorable. But her own life is anything but picture perfect. Her parents’ bitter divorce left her wondering what a loving relationship looks like. And ever since the senior class voted her and star quarterback Brody ‘Perfect Couple That Never Was’, her friends have been pushing her to ask Brody out.

Brody doesn’t lack female admirers, but Harper can’t see herself with him. He’s confused about the match too. Yet they find themselves drawn together; first by curiosity about why the class paired them, then by an undeniable bond.

The trouble is, though they’re attracted to each other, they have a hard time getting along or even communicating well. 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 they feel so changed from making the effort, they can’t forget each other. What if this match made in hell is the perfect couple after all?


I combed through the first third of the book before I found the excerpt I wanted to share with you. I hope you all enjoy it and decide to pick up a copy of this awesome book!

“I’ll catch up with y’all,” I said “Back to the towels for me. I’m having contact problems.” Amid the chorus of “Oh, no!” and “Poor baby!” and “Do you need help?” I explained what had happened. “If I can wipe my eyes and run fresh water over my hands, I think I’ll be okay.”

I sloshed toward shore. But as I reached dry sand, I was anything but okay. My left eye stung. My right eye was worse. When I opened it, all I could see was blur. The beach was as bright as another planet with no atmosphere to filter the sun. I could hardly see my way back to the island of umbrellas and towels I’d come from. When I finally made it, I tripped over several boys and landed on the dog, who didn’t budge.

“Move, dog,” I said rudely. She got up, sticking her sandy dog butt in my face as I opened my cooler for a thermos of water.

Kennedy was telling the other guys about the indie film we’d seen at the Tampa Theater downtown last weekend. They were laughing uncontrollably. Kennedy was brilliant and had great comedic delivery. He would be perfect someday as the vastly intelligent, super dry commentator on a political comedy show. His shtick was as much as what he left out as what he said. At the moment, he was strategically omitting that we’d had an argument in his car on the way to the movie and that he still hadn’t been speaking to me by the time he dropped me off at home afterwards.

“Right, Harper?” I heard him ask. He wanted me to verify some funny point in the movie – something he hadn’t discussed with me one on one, because we’d hardly talked since then.

This was his way of making up. After our fights, he ignored me until he just decided not to anymore, signaled by him by asking me a question and me responding, and then it was like nothing had happened between us. This time, instead of answering, I poured freezing water over my hand and wiped at my eye. Now it felt like I’d gotten sand in my eyeball. I tried to shift the offending particle into the corner where my tears would flush it out. That was a mistake. The stinging was intense.

I tried to open my eye. I couldn’t. My upper eyelid was wedged shut with my contact. Was it possible that my contact had drifted that far back? Could it float even further and get stuck on my optic nerve? Where was my eleventh-grade anatomy knowledge when I needed it?

“Guys,” I called. Kennedy kept up his blasé movie commentary while I went blind in one eye. Tears streaming down my cheek, I said more loudly, “Guys, do any of you wear contacts? I need help. I think my contact has shifted into the back of my eye socket.”

“Harper,” Kennedy said, “only you.”

I took in a deep breath to calm myself, but I was on the verge of panic. These boys were not going to help me. Kennedy would make fun of me while this piece of flexible plastic sliced its way into my brain and gave me a lobotomy. The girls would help me, but they were too far away to hear me yell over the surf, and I couldn’t open one eye, and now I couldn’t see out of the good eye because of the tears. I felt like screaming.

Strong hands framed my face. One thumb pulled at my lower eyelid. I was surprised Kennedy had relented and come to my rescue. “ I wear contacts, and I know all about this, unfortunately. Let me help.”

But it wasn’t Kennedy’s voice. It was Brody.

When Harper and Brody are voted Perfect Couple That Never Was they are both shocked. The two couldn’t be more different. Harper is the photography nerd and Brody is the star quarterback. But since that day, she finds herself noticing him more and more. Since that day, her friends have been pushing her to ask him out. Even though she has a boyfriend, she finds herself thinking about Brody more and more. She finds herself wondering if maybe the school knows what they are talking about and she should give this budding attraction wtih Brody a chance.

Harper is that geeky girl who is hiding a rocking body. She’s smart and hard-working, with a desperate drive to get the best photographs. She dresses pretty conservatively for a high school girl and she swears it’s because she likes it that way. But is it really? The further into this we get, the more we see her question those decisions. I both loved and hated this. I loved that she wanted to experiment. I loved that she was brave enough to try something new. I loved that the new looks work well. What I didn’t love was how it was all inspired by Brody. I’m very big on the be yourself schtick. Changing solely to impress a guy is something I feel like very girl does and something that we shouldn’t. We should all put our best face forward, but there is a difference between that and drastically altering your wardrobe to get a guy. What happens when you get tired of wearing those tight tops and mini-skirts? What happens when you just want to roam around comfortably in jeans and a tee, but he expects full-on glamor all the time? That isn’t what happens here, but it bugged me that her change was Brody inspired. She ends up liking it for herself, but it could have easily went a different direction.

Brody was a character I wanted to love immediately, but he took time to grow on me. He’s cocky and hot and completely sure of himself. He has a bit of that player vibe going on that I tend to find slimy rather than sexy. He has enough charm to keep me from being completely weary of him, but he also has a sorta girlfriend when he starts fooling around with Harper, when gives me the skeezy vibe. Beyond that, though, he was pretty loveable. It was clear that he was sincere under all the bravado.

What I really enjoyed about this, about all Echols work really, is the relationships. It’s not just about boy meets girl, it’s about friends and family and self. It’s goes deeper than just a flirty YA contemporary romance. Both characters are realistically flawed and relatable. I didn’t always agree with their actions, but they always felt authentic and true to life. That’s not to say that some of their actions weren’t downright stupid because they were. That whole “make Brody jealous” bit sent me into a mini-rage because we all know that was not the right move. How is that the right thing for the moment? Those moments always anger me in books. You know, the ones where the character finds out something they don’t like and instead of thinking things through, they do something rash and stupid. I’m not a fan of stupid. I actively try to avoid stupid.

What I didn’t like was they was this skirted around the cheating issue. Harper is dating Kennedy. No matter how much of a jerk Kennedy is, they are still in a relationship. Nothing should happen with Brody until after that has ended. Brody is sorta dating Grace, but that’s a bit more vague. Either way, lust doesn’t excuse a lack of common curtsey. I hate how some novels portray cheating as acceptable because it’s “true love” and the characters “couldn’t help themselves.” I’d just like to call bullshit on that particular concept. Be man (or woman) enough to admit want and go after it, but don’t deceive people to get it. I’m a bit more forgiving here because they are teenagers and hormones do run high at that age. Plus, you know, teenagers aren’t as much of an adult as they’d like to believe. Also, shit happens.

I think I may have liked this a bit more than Biggest Flirt. Even though I am still a bigger Will fangirl than I will ever be for Brody. Will is that nice, boy next door type and I love seeing those. That’s beyond the point. This is a perfect contemporary YA written with Echols trademark style and wit. It’s addictive and I tore threw it needing to know if Harper and Brody finally worked out their shit. If you like Echols previous work or contemporary romances, then you’ll love this!

Review for Biggest Flirts (Superlatives #1) by Jennifer Echols

Tia is just looking for a senior year of fun. She’s a perfect flirt and has a hard-earned reputation as a party girl. She isn’t looking for anything serious as she has seen where that could lead to and wants no part of it. The first order of business on this year’s list of guys to fool around with is Will. Will, however, is looking for something serious. He is a stand-up guy and doesn’t much go for the love ’em and leave ’em hookups. When Tia refused to date him, he looks elsewhere, putting Tia in an awful position. Does she want him for herself enough to get over her fears or will she let him go and move on?

Tia was a character I instantly loved. Though I don’t have much in common with her, I love that a character like her has finally made her way into YA literature. She’s smart and confident and not a virgin. She’s the heroine who is okay with noncommittal hookups and is terrified of a relationship. For all intents and purposes, she is the typical YA male. I loved the role reversal. I loved that she wasn’t looking for more, that she was scared of more. She has good reason to be, seeing how her sisters lives have turned out. I also love that she hides her amazing drummer skills. She intentionally misses a beat or two so she isn’t the lead drummer and doesn’t have to tackle those responsibilities. She doesn’t want this. She is scared she’ll suck at them. I love that she is confident and not at the same time. I just love her.

Will is adorable in his attentions to persuade her into a relationship. Their friendship/whatever the hell it really is, is the stuff dreams are made of. I loved them together from the start. He’s so sweet, even from the start that I couldn’t help but love him. I’m a sucker for a sweetheart. He does what he can to help Tia, even when she’s being a bitch. He doesn’t take it all lying down, though, standing up when he thinks it’s appropriate and sometimes even when it’s not.
It feels so good to read another great Jennifer Echols story. I was a bit worried after I read her adult contemporary romance and didn’t love it. It wasn’t terrible, but it didn’t come close to the awesomeness that she portrays in her YA’s and I thought maybe she was losing her touch. But this proves that is not the case. Maybe I’m just not a fan of normal contemporary romance or maybe that was a fluke, but either way, this novel was fantastic.

(Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

The writing is great, the story is interesting, and all the characters felt very well rounded. My only issue was that Tia and Will play the break up and get back together game a bunch. That always irritates me. Tia has her reasons for shying away from commitment, but it doesn’t make it any less annoying for me. Either you like him enough to get over it or you don’t, but pick one.

What you really need to know is that this novel has everything you’d expect from Jennifer Echols. It’s witty, it’s funny, it’s sweet. It’s the perfect combination of heart-warming and heart-breaking. It’s the perfect contemporary YA romance that breaks the tradition of virginity = good, smart girl. Tia is flirty and fun and not ashamed of how active (or inactive) her sex life may be. She’s a great role model for teens, in my humble opinion.

Review for Playing Dirty (Stargazer #2) by Jennifer Echols

Playing Dirty by Jennifer Echols

TITLE: Playing Dirty
SERIES: Stargazer #2
AUTHOR: Jennifer Echols
PUBLICATION DATE: October 29, 2013

RATING: 3 bows

Sarah Seville screwed up royally in Rio with crazy rocker Nine Lives. Sure, she kept him concentrating long enough to record his album, but now he’s stuck in prison and when he gets out shit’s really going to hit the fan. To save her career, she takes on The Cheatin’ Hearts, a country group famous not only for their perverted lyrics, but also for their antics. This group is constantly starting fights and hitting the hospital for overdose’s. It’ll be a miracle if she can pull this off, but she’ll try anything to keep her mind off Nine Lives. The Cheatin’ Hearts have three golden rules to keep them together: no drugs, no sleeping with other band members, and no sleeping with record company spies. Quentin laid the rules out in the beginning and expects everyone to follow his lead. It’s kept the band together and successful for several years now and he isn’t willing to risk that, no matter how attracted to Sarah he is. But the longer she stays, the harder he has to fight his urge to seduce her and let all his walls down, a dangerous prospect indeed.

This is moderately better than it’s predecessor, but that isn’t saying much. It still falls desperately short when measured to Jennifer Echols other works. The best way to describe this novel is one word: DRAMA. The drama contained in just the four members of The Cheatin’ Hearts was enough to set me over the edge, then adding Sarah & Quentin’s tension-y relationship to it and I was just a bit miffed. I’m not a huge fan of drama. In fact, I like to keep it to a minimum, so you can image how I felt about all the subterfuge between the band, Sarah, and the media circus they create. The “dumb hick” act Quentin is so fond of had me screaming to just fucking stop. Seriously, it’s not attractive in the least and no, you’ll overly muscled body doesn’t compensate. I get you are physically attractive, but dumbing yourself down so the media will “like” you is about as dumb as girls who act brainless to get the guy. It’s infuriating.

What’s more is he keeps the act up throughout most of the novel, so by then end I feel like he and Sarah don’t know each other well enough to profess the feelings they claim to have. How can you love someone you don’t know? Sarah, by the way, is just as guilty. After her husband asked for a divorce, she had a massive makeover and has tried to match her new personality to it. But new Sarah and old Sarah are pretty different and it’s hard for me to reconcile the two when I’ve been in her head for half the novel, much less for Quentin who’s just been catching what she lets slip on occasion.

The rest of the cast is alternatively annoying or absent. Erin can’t seem to settle on whether she wants to be friendly or bitchy. Since the audience knows her and Quentin’s “relationship” is bullshit, it’s unclear why she plays that card. I mean, I know Sarah expects jealousy, but seriously, just pick a side and stay there. Same with Owen, who obviously hates Sarah intensely one moment and then is friendly the next. And they all blindly follow Quentin’s lead. You claim he’s genius level intelligent, but we rarely see him back it up because I don’t consider engineering the band’s publicity as a genius act. I consider it stupid. I get that it’s what got you the attention you needed to get a recording contract, but you got it so let the drama go!

The writing was mediocre at best and the plot felt highly predictable. ****SPOILER****Yes, Erin and Owen are sleeping together and of course Nine Lives is going to show up at an inopportune moment.****END SPOILER**** It almost felt like Echols recycled the end of Star Crossed, just changing the bare minimum of details so it would fit here.

It’s difficult to express my level of disappointment. This isn’t a bad read. It’s not great, but it’s tolerable and if almost anyone else had written it, I probably would have liked it more. But I know Echols is capable of more. She’s one of my favorite contemporary writers and to see her produce this hot mess makes me endlessly sad. Here’s hoping.

Wendy Mann loves her job, but she’s losing it. After her bosses tell her she’s fired, she begs for another chance and they give it to her: rehabilitate teenage rocker Lorelei Vogel before she loses her recording contract. It’s an impossible job, but Wendy is determined to do it. It just becomes more difficult when she realizes Lorelei’s ex is being repped by Daniel Blackstone, her college rival, and they will all be in Vegas together for this particularly hellish week. Daniel cannot believe he’ll be seeing Wendy again. She starred in way too many of his college fantasies, not that she’ll ever know that. But Wendy is an unneeded distraction and soon, he cannot help but pay more attention to her than to his client. With the heat turning past the boiling point for these two, can they still manage to keep their respective stars in line long enough to save Wendy’s career?

I didn’t love this novel the way I’ve loved all the other stories I’ve read by Jennifer Echols. I found Wendy to be too over-the-top and just plain annoying. Yes, we get it. You spent a week as a stripper (but apparently it was a very good week) and you have gorgeous blonde hair. Good for you, but seriously, get on with it. Daniel, wasn’t much better, coming off as high handed and too damn quiet. He laughs at Wendy’s dumb sex jokes, all of which made me cringe. He’s apparently very attractive, but I had a hard time imaging him in my head. The romance between the two felt awkward at best and forced at worst. I understand there are legitimate reasons you two cannot fuck each other’s brains out and get it over with, but I felt like their relationship was just lust and once they are together for a few months, it’ll burn out quickly. The fact that they stupidly got married for a publicity stunt makes it that much worse.

The plotline, at least, was interesting enough. I would actually really love to see more of Lorelei. She is what kept me reading, to see if her storyline would work out. I don’t think we’ll get much more of her in this series and that is just sad since she was the big highlight for me. The novel was decent enough, I supposed, but disappointing because I’ve adored all the Jennifer Echols books I’ve read until now and I hate seeing something I’m excited about fall below my expectations. I am planning on reading the next novel, but I’m not nearly as excited about it was I was before I started this. Hopefully the next heroine won’t be so obnoxious and I won’t dislike her as much.

Review for Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols

Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols

TITLE: Dirty Little Secret
AUTHOR: Jennifer Echols
PUBLISHER: MTV Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster
PAGES: 273 pages
SOURCE: Edelweiss
RATING: 5 stars

Bailey Mayfield has always been a good girl. She has been touring the music circuit playing her fiddle while her younger sister sings and plays guitar since she was old enough to play. But when her sister is offered a music career sans Bailey, she finds her family has not only deserted her, but demands that she stop playing music to keep from interfering in her sisters career. Hurt and pissed off, Bailey spirals out of control, becoming the wild child every parent fears. But she never can break the cardinal rule of no longer playing in public, until she meets Sam who begs her to join his band. Once burned, twice shy, she timidly agrees to play a single gig with them and discovers that giving up music for good will be much harder than she ever imagined.

For the most part, I thoroughly adored this novel. Bailey is easy to sympathize with. How could her family just push her off to the side like that? Though she is beyond furious with her parents, she never stops supporting her sister, which I found so endearing. Her love for her fiddle was also fascinating. She proclaims to know all the songs, or at least be able to fake her way through the ones she doesn’t and her talent alone left me in awe. Watching her seamlessly blend into the different groups made me wish my parents had shoved an instrument at me at a young age, demanding I master it. Alas, that isn’t the case, and beyond a brief few middle school years learning to play the flute, I’ve never been able to master an instrument and truly love it. This novel gave me a peak at a life when I couldn’t get enough of it.

I’m on the fence about the leading man in this novel, Sam. He’s talented, adorable, and oozes charm, but sometimes the interactions between him and Bailey had me so angry that I can’t believe she went back to him. His on again off again mentality had me wishing she would find someone else, someone better even if that someone didn’t have a band she meshed so well with. There were a few moments where he was so unbelievable cute that I wasn’t surprised at how she fell for him and in the end, he does apologize and try to make things right, but I’m not sure that would have been enough for me.

I only had one (well, MAYBE two) issue with this, besides being undecided about Sam, and it is really just a small blip that happens in a lot of novels. Bailey plays a lot of gigs, but they almost never say what songs they play, just vaguely mention artists like Alan Jackson, Ke$ha, Justin Timberlake, and so on. This just makes it harder for me to really get into the novel. I realize that authors do this in order to avoid upsetting people by choosing songs they hate and also to avoid dating the novel to a specific time period, but it really irritates me. It is much easier for me to get into a novel if I know what they are playing, you know? Take Alan Jacksons songs for instance. The tone of Drive is exceedingly different from Who’s Cheatin’ Who. It just irritates me. Just pick the song they are going to sing because really even if someone hates that song, that shouldn’t make them dislike the book. I’m not a huge country fan, and I really dislike the older country like Hank Williams or Willie Nelson, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this! The second issue was also on the insignificant level. Throughout the novel, Sam and Bailey makeout/kiss/fondle/whatever and that’s fine. But when they finally have sex, all the details are left out. I realize this isn’t erotica or even really romance as a new adult novel, but I just felt cheated. Besides the lack of tasteful description, Bailey also didn’t show much emotion about it. I know, it’s just me, but I feel like it could have been handled a little better.

Besides my very small issues, this novel really blew me away. I think it’s a must read new adult novel and I think anyone who likes that genre will love this. I plan on reading everything by Jennifer Echols that I can get my hands on.

Review for Levitating Las Vegas by Jennifer Echols

Levitating Las Vegas by Jennifer Echols

PAGES: 300 pages

RATING: 4 stars

Holly Starr can’t wait to freshen up her dad’s tired magic show, but until he keeps his agreement to share his secrets with her, she can’t do anything but wait and perform as his magical assistant. But before that can happen, Holly’s prescription of crazy pills runs out and the pharmacy doesn’t know when they’ll get more. Terrified that her old delusion of being about to levitate objects will come back, Holly is desperate to get her hands on more. Elijah Brown, her old high school crush, just happens to suffer from the same brand of crazy, except he thinks he can read minds. He is also terrified he’ll go completely coo-coo for cocoa puffs, he ends up taking Holly on a road trip to a small town in Colorado where the pills are manufactured. But on the way, they discover that maybe they aren’t crazy and maybe that attraction that flared between then all those years ago is still alive and well. Can they beat the odds to make a life together?

This novel is so addictive. I couldn’t stop reading and I was immediately draw into this strange world of readers, changers, and levitators. Holly and Elijah were easy to sympathize with, considering all their parents put them through. After all, it was the fact that Holly’s parents made them break off their date that caused the onset of both of their powers. It starts off a bit confusing because you feel just like the characters and you aren’t sure if what they believed happened or what their parents tell them happened is real, but once you get passed that, it all starts to fall into place.

Holly was a great leading lady. She’s spunky and rebellious, but her love for her parents and fear of her “disease” keeps her pretty well in line. Go to college, assist dad in his magic show, and be a good girl. Once she realizes what’s really happened, we get to see that rebellion really show its face. She’s angry and she isn’t afraid to show it. Her parents better be on their fucking guard because there is no excuse for lying to her for the past seven years. Elijah is less inclined to be angry about it. He’s mother has always tried to do what’s best for him and knowing she’s done everything on her own since his dad is dead, he’s a bit more sympathetic to her cause, but still more than a little miffed about what they took away from him. Elijah is definitely a swoon-worthy leading guy. He’s sweet and funny, with bright green eyes, wavey brown hair, and a muscled body from years of lacrosse and carpentry work. Once he knows Holly really does like him and wants him, he’s determined to keep her and protect her….even if she is determined to walk head first into trouble. Their romance is intense and I spent a good portion of this novel just waiting for them to finally get through their shit and be together because it’s obvious that’s where they belong.

So if the storyline is great, the writing is addictive, and I love the characters, why only four stars? My issue is that (at the moment) this novel is a standalone and so many things felt unfinished. There is no cliffhanger. Holly & Elijah’s story resolves and all is well, but there just feels like there is more that needs to be explored ****SPOILER****Like the obvious attraction between Kaylee and Shane or what’s going to happen between the Casino and the Rez or how the hell Kaylee plans to keep Mr Diamond’s death a secret indefinitely because eventually someone is going to demand to see him that won’t take no for an answer.****END SPOILER**** It’s an odd feeling for me because I’m typical that person who doesn’t understand why a book needs 5 sequels when the first one was perfect and I’m the one hesitant to start any series that has more than 3 or 4 books in it because I feel like that’s a bit too long to drag it out. Seriously, the House of Night series has like 13 books now and I KNOW those weren’t worthy of 5 books much less that many. I’m the person who gets irritated at the fan girls begging for sequels to a storyline that is definitely over. I get that you loved the characters, but you realize another book means more torment for them, right? There has to be conflict and do you really want to see them suffer more? If you want more, just go re-read the already published novels or explore the land of fanfiction! I’m not asking for a whole series, in fact that would make me angry, but the content of this book feels to me like the novel itself should be longer (it was only 300 pages), or they should do a sequel just to wrap up the loose ends.

Regardless of this issue, I did wholly enjoy it and I think anyone looking for a good paranormal romance/new adult story would definitely enjoy this.
