Guy most likely to is a three story anthology based on high school reunions. Normally I find anthologies to be a little hit or miss, I never seem to like all the stories but Guy Most Likely To managed to entertain me from beginning to end. I will break down the review into the individual stories.

This was by far my favourite story out of the three. It

Three authors who write sexy contemporary romance put their heads together and came up with a theme. What ever happened to that guy from high school… Lets find out at the 10th year reunion in three wonderful stories.

4.5 stars. This set of three novellas embrace the 2nd chance romance trope. Conflict is resolved quickly and all stories have a nice feelgood moment. Great if you are looking for a lighthearted quick story. Story 1 was my favorite of the set, it took you on a full ride of different emotions. Story 3 was my least favorite, as the h seemed like she was faking the whole bad girl thing to get the guy. Overall, a nice set of stories that I anticipate that I will read again in the future.

I picked this one up because I've read and enjoyed stories and/or novels by all three authors, so I was eager to see what they would do with the high school reunion theme. Ultimately, each story was pretty good, with sympathetic characters, good chemistry, and a varying amount of sweetness. However, I have to say that, while I enjoyed all three stories, none of them was particularly special - everything seemed formulaic, with mostly stock/cliche characters. So, while there isn't anything exactly ...more

One of my FAVORITE Anthologies. Who can resist a Reunion Love Story.

In the first story, Underneath It All by Leslie Kelly, we meet Lauren and Seth, who had been the "it" couple up until the night he ditches her on prom night and never even calls to give her an explaination. Well ten years later, he shows up at the reunion with the truth and the need to get Lauren to listen after all these years.

I really enjoyed this story. Lauren and Seth were both such likeab

Underneath It All by Leslie Kelley

Okay, confession time. I never went to my senior prom. I was so anti-school by my senior year that I wanted nothing to do with anything so “déclassé”. Now that I’m *mumble* one, I sometimes wonder what it would have been like. Somehow, I’m sure I would have had a better time than Lauren, the heroine in this story. As the prom queen, she’s left standing alone on

This an anthology. All the novellas involving the class of 2002's reunion at a Reunion resort Celebrations in Chicago. And the stories are all named after hit songs from 2002.

"Underneath it All" by Leslie Kelly
Lauren was all set to go to prom with Seth, only he disappeared on prom night. Now ten years later, he's back to apologise to her for not showing.

I liked it, Seth definitely had a good reason for not showing and the reason they stayed apart is believable. Seth and Lauren were good together

This Blaze issue contains three short stories all about the subject of those dreaded class reunions. Heroines one and two are only attending very reluctantly, the third one is the organiser and loving it, but all of them had beaus in high school that are attending also. So, a reunion of hearts in the making?
To be quite honest, only story number three really pulls it off, the others seem to be lacking. The first tale is concentrating too hard on the prom queen and king getting back together, esse

This review will be posted on From the TBR Pile July 1, 2012.
This book was a lot of fun. Each story is a very quick read. I enjoyed all three, but not equally. Of the three authors, I have only read books by Janelle Denison. I know I will be seeking out other works by the other two.

Underneath It All is Leslie Kelly's offering. I loved Seth and Lauren's story. Out of the three it was the most believable. They have a serious history together. Seth's story of why he left was heartbreaking. I wo

Written for: Beyond Reading

The Guy Most Likely To... consists of three novellas/short stories based on high school students, now grown, with histories. Histories that include plenty of sparks that never did quite sizzle out.

Underneath it All

The Guy Most Likely to Score with the Prom Queen. Underneath it All was very much chuckle-worthy. I loved the chemistry between Seth and Lauren, they were very cute together. Their mutual history was note-worthy, and Seth provided a mystery for Lauren and

This was a great quick summer read, each story is filled with steamy scenes, just want you want on a hot summer day. Three of my favorite Blaze authors team up to create three sizzling books centered around "high school reunions".

Being stood up at your high school prom is not a good thing, especially if you are the Prom Queen and your King is MIA. Seth and his family leave suddenly and

As many of you know, I love grabbing a Harlequin Blaze book at the grocery store and reading them while at football practices. This one I picked up on Net Galley and read through one short at a time. But yesterday, I slipped into our local Chapters (Starbuck's is my excuse for the pop-in) and the cover in the flesh is so Tom Cruise in Risky Business...and a throw back for me to high school!

High school reunions are something of an oddity for me. I didn't go back to my 20th...well becau
This was a quick read, and fairly satisfying. The theme was a fun one--reuniting with an old flame at a high school reunion (do people really look forward to those things? It's hard to believe), and all three stories took place at the same location--a resort designed for reunions. Other than that, they weren't connected, which was a bit of a letdown. I read this over a couple of days, so I kept checking back to see if any of the characters or situations were in common, but they weren't. It would ...more

These three stories are about couples meeting again at their 10 year HS reunions at a resort near Chicago that specializes in reunions. Underneath It All by Leslie Kelly was a wonderful story in this anthology of Seth and Lauren. He ran out on her on Prom night 10 years ago and no one knows why. He's back to explain things to her if she'll let him. Two good characters that are very likable and quite lovable at the end.
Can't Get You Out of My Head by Janelle Denison was my favorite of the three s
First impressions: I liked this much more than I thought I would. I was a little irritated that all three stories were about tenth reunions - would have it been so horrible to make the couples 33 or even 38? Or - GOD FORBID - in their 40s?

Anyway, I really enjoyed the first two stories by Leslie Kelly and Janelle Denison - both were charming and sexy, with likeable heroines and great beta heroes. The conflicts were Big Misunderstandings that were cleared up with one conversation that led immedia

I really enjoyed all three stories in this book. Three of my favourite authors deliver quite a punch with their sexy stories filled with emotion as well as both internal an external conflict. The only negative I find is that they were just too short. Each story would have been great as full length novels. I wish that was the case. It would have been fun to explore their characters more. The stories in this anthology are funny, sexy and filled with likeable characters that are placed in realistic ...more

Fun premise for this anthology.

I always enjoy the authors in this anthology! I can always count on a fun hawt read......did not disappoint! This series is based on the always stressful.......high school reunion. There is always one that either got away or you wonder how their life turned out. These ladies did a great job at their reunions!
Steamy! The last novella in this compilation - by Julie Leto - gets 4.5 stars from me. The other two stories get 3.
Why'd I like the last one so much? It sizzled in a way that was believable, and the lead characters, Erica and "Rip", cracked me up. I love a story where a "good girl" tries to remake herself.

This was a fun collection of short stories. I was disappointed that they weren't all connected. For some reason I had expected them to all be classmates and weave throughout the stories.
