Review: The Boy Most Likely To

* Companion to The Boy Next Door *
Alice has everything under control - except maybe her own life. When her family needs her, Alice does everything she can to help them. But will that include giving up her future too?

She thought she would stay home and take the apartment over the garage, but her brother just told Tim he could move in. Tim has his own parental troubles. His life is out of control and he needs to start thinking about his future. And then his past comes back at him.

As Alice spends more time with Tim, she begins to fall for him. He's not the kind of guy she imagined falling for, but she did. Can the two of them make a relationship work or was it doomed from the start?
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this companion novel.

I loved seeing more of the Garrett family. I love Alice's brothers and sisters. They added humor to the story.

I liked seeing Alice be able to let go for a little while -especially during her interactions with Tim. She took so much responsibility upon herself that she needed a break. 

I felt bad for Tim - dealing with his family. Yes he made some bad choices, but that didn't mean they should throw him out. I liked how he stepped up and took responsibility for his actions. 

Of course I liked seeing more of Sam and Jase too.

Looks cute. I think a friend has the first one, so I'll need to stalk her to get it then read this one. :)

It is neat when an author can do a companion novel well. Allowing a book to feel like a complete and full work on its own even when it builds off of an existing set of characters is a challenge. Glad to hear this one did so well with that!
