When the popular crowd at Brentwood High votes me Most Likely To: Marry A Math Book, I’m ready to put my ruler into the eye of any egotistical jock who comes near me.

Including the idolized Bobcats football player, Connor Bray, when he asks me to tutor him.

His only requirement?

Our tutoring sessions must be top-secret—meaning that because Connor is too embarrassed to be seen with the resident math geek, I can’t even tell my boyfriend I’m helping Brentwood High’s all-star player.

And I’m about to tell him where he can stick his protractor when the principal steps in, saying that if I agree to help Connor pass his makeup test—and keep him on the team to lead Brentwood to the State Championships—she’ll reinstate the valedictorian award I’d been striving for my entire life.

Brentwood High’s finest, cornering its top student with bribery.

But there is one thing Connor might have to offer in return—love advice to recapture the spark with my ever-distant boyfriend. Connor, who keeps the student body mesmerized just by flashing a forearm, is bound to have a good game plan, right?

Except when Connor begins to give me lessons in love—and his demonstrations are breathtakingly thorough—it starts to feel like I’m the one getting schooled.

Book Review:

I have read almost all of Sarah Sutton’s books, but this one was hands down my favorite! I loved it even though it was the first book in her new series, Most Likely To. I think sometimes the first books can feel too set-uppy. But in this one, Sutton introduced a bunch of people and set up their stories without taking anything away from Maisie and Connor.

Okay, I really understood and empathized with Maisie. She didn’t feel one dimensional or irrationally angry at the popular crowd. And she actually had a really good reason for being frustrated with Connor too. Plus, I thought it was an interesting spin to have her family be artsy and her be more analytical. It isn’t done as often, and I think it’s important for there to be more diversity in storylines. And I loved the fact that she actually got along with her sister even though they were different!

Connor grew on me. He could be a jerk at times, but he was also really sweet. He was hiding a lot under his mask. I loved how Maisie helped him realize that he could be himself and not hide. They were both able to take off their masks with each other.

I loved this book! I cannot wait for the other ones in the series. I’m so excited for Dreaming About the Boy Next Door and Madison and Landon’s books. I would totally recommend this clean read along with any of Sarah Sutton’s other books!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.
