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?

I was constantly seeing people rave about Jennifer Echols' books, and when I decided to give them a try, starting with Biggest Flirts, I was a bit disappointed. Not in Jennifer's writing, but in the book as a whole. I decided it just wasn't the right book for me, and read Perfect Couple. Well, now I DO KNOW what people are raving about. This book was 336 pages of amazing! I enjoyed every last bit of it and I think I read it in a record time too.

Harper and Brody receive the title of The Perfect Couple That Never Was, but the thing is, both of them don't have a clue why would people want them to be together. They have nothing in common, he's an athlete and she's into art and photography. But it's gotten them curious, and Harper may had a crush on Brody before. And while they joke around and flirt, Harper never meant for something to happen, but when it does, she has a hard time of not thinking about it. They're both in a relationship, which complicates the things even more, but will they give up on what they have when they're together?

I really enjoyed the romance in this book. I loved the easy banter that Harper and Brody had going on. Their relationship went from just an attraction to a really strong bond with real feelings. While I don't approve all the cheating that took place in Perfect Couple, I don't think this book would have been the same without it. It contributed a lot to how their relationship was building up, and every stolen moment meant so much more because of it. Echols created the perfect romance and I enjoyed how Harper was slowly opening to Brody and how in the end he learned how to go after it.

I haven't noticed Harper much in Biggest Flirts, but I've gotten to really like her. Brody as well. Which is the complete opposite of how I felt about Tia and Will. The next book will feature Sawyer and I'm really excited to see how that will work out since I really liked his character from the beginning.

Like I already said, I really enjoyed Perfect Couple and I would gladly recommend it to everyone who likes contemporary romances, as this one is one of the best of them.
