Perfect Couple: Review

From Goodreads:
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?

My Review:
So in this book, we get Harper and Brody's story! And it was a pretty awesome one, seeing what their superlative title that they got! And yeah, it fit them-until they actually pursued a relationship, which takes them out of the "never was" part of it, at least!

I just really enjoyed their relationship! The people that in school, who have almost to no interactions, common interests, the kind of stuff that it seems that relationships are built on, they have none of that. But opposites attract is a cliché for a reason!

This was a mostly light-hearted book. Mostly, because it involves humans, and humans can't always be happy, and light, we, as a species, have up and down points, and yeah, one word that can be used about this book? Is real. It was real, and it was a real treat to read it!

I'm so glad that the next and last book is Kaye and Sawyer's book! It's going to be fantastic, I just know it! And I'm going to be reading it next week, yeah, thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher! I can't wait!

This was a pretty awesome book! So glad to read it, and yeah, the self-imposed wait, though much better then most other waits, for the next book, is still going to be evil!
