The Blurb:

Book two of Girls Most Likely to…

Ten years ago, Marc and Bree were voted Cutest Couple—until a graduation-night argument destroyed their relationship. Unable to contact him, Bree had no choice but to forget Marc—and raise the son she never got to tell him about.

Marc got Bree’s message loud and clear when he never heard from her again. Now stationed near his hometown, he sees their high school reunion as a chance to make peace with the past. But after one glimpse of Bree, he knows he never really got over her. And after one glimpse of her son, Marc knows he’s the boy’s father…

Despite the secrets and lies that kept them apart, Marc and Bree can’t resist picking up where they left off. But when the weekend is over, it may be too late to build the future they once dreamed of.

For Kelsey and Nathan’s story, check out Most Likely to Succeed.

My Thoughts:

So far this series has had a cute reunited crush story and now we have former sweethearts with one holding on to a huge secret.  Both were good quick reads but in this one I did find myself a little mad at the heroine for keeping the secret the way she did.  I understood her reasonings but just because you understand it doesn’t mean you like the reasons.

Bree is dreading the high school reunion but she figures her old flame won’t show up especially since he hasn’t set foot in their town since the last argument they had.  She’s not 100% thrilled that he shows up nor is she happy when her feelings for him don’t seem to have gone away since the last time they saw each other.  She knows she has one hell of a secret to spill but it comes out in a very public, very poor way that they both have to scramble to come to terms with.  As she spends more time with him she has to decide is what drove them apart in the first place really worth losing the only man who has ever been able to make her feel anything?

Marc is shocked when he sees Bree and realizes that she still calls to him in a way that no other woman has been able to.  He’s also understandably shocked when he finds out he has a son.  He’s pissed off for being kept in the dark and does behave a bit badly in the initial moments but I understood his reaction and just felt bad for him.  I loved that he just wanted to know his son but as he spent more time with Bree he realized that he wanted it all with her.  He pushed but also didn’t back down when she wouldn’t accept his career choices and kept his life going but with them in it.  He’s a good guy that deserved better treatment by the woman he loves even though I really did get her reactions and issues.

I really did enjoy the pair and cannot wait for the next one…  😉  Special thanks to NetGalley.com and Carina Press for giving me the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review.  As always you can run out and grab this plus other fun titles by clicking the link to Carina on my sidebar.
