Genre: Teens | YA
Publisher: Egmont Publishing
Publication Date: 9 June 2016
"Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To find the drinks cabinet blindfolded, need a liver transplant, and drive his car into a house.
Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To . . . well, not date her little brother’s baggage-burdened best friend, for starters.
For Tim, it wouldn’t be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the “smart” choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard . . ."
I really enjoyed My Life Next Door by this author (review on Me, My Books and I) so I just couldn't resist finding out if I'd feel the same about The Boy Most Likely To which is a companion read.
Getting to know Tim a little bit better at the beginning of the book was an eye-opener, it was clear that he had made some bad life choices. He had an attitude which I'm sure would irritate me in real life but in a book I absolutely love characters with sass, they're so much fun to read.
I liked catching up with the characters from My Life Next Door, it kind of felt like an update from old friends. Alice's household was still crazy and reminded me of the big-family madness in my own home.
The chemistry between Tim and Alice was exciting to read, I didn't care that I could see where it was headed because I was enjoying the journey to get to that point. Then came a shocking announcement that I knew would complicate the journey. I'm fairly sure I gasped out loud as I read it but I'm not entirely sure because I was so caught up in the moment!
The complication caused a mixture of emotional, dramatic and sometimes even funny scenes. This was a twist that I really hadn't expected but thoroughly enjoyed.
The Boy Most Likely To took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions and surprises. A wonderful read.
