The Girl Most Likely To...

Kat Cavanaugh was sixteen when she hitchhiked out of Persuasion, West Virginia and vowed never to return. Who could blame her? She’d just stumbled upon her father’s adulterous affair, found out she was pregnant, got dumped by her boyfriend, and kicked out of her house and school . . . all in a single afternoon. Twenty years have gone by and Kat’s back—gorgeous, rich, and looking for an apology from everyone who’d turned their backs on her. First on that list is Riley Bohland, the boy who broke her heart before she could tell him about the baby.

But Kat didn’t count on Riley having his own axe to grind, or that he’d be just as delicious as he was at sixteen. She also didn’t count on her heart opening at the sight of him. When their anger ignites a passion intense enough to burn through two decades of secrets and lies, Kat must question everything she thought she knew about her past. And what about her future? The only place to find the answers may be in Riley’s arms…

Susan Donovan is a must read author (at least for me), but the last book left me a little cold. I didn't care for it as much as the previous ones. My expectations for The Girl Most Likely To... were somewhat subdued.

And I'm glad that they were...Don't get me wrong it wasn't a bad read. But it was a more of a "oh well" read. The humour was there, it had the quick dialogue that I adore, the characters were likable (and attractive), but there was way too much going on. The plot had a sub-plot and that sub-plot had it's own sub-plot...well you get the idea. And it felt rushed.
