Overview

Kat Cavanaugh was sixteen when she hitchhiked out of Persuasion, West Virginia and vowed never to return. Who could blame her? She’d just stumbled upon her father’s adulterous affair, found out she was pregnant, got dumped by her boyfriend, and kicked out of her house and school . . . all in a single afternoon. Twenty years have gone by and Kat’s back—gorgeous, rich, and looking for an apology from everyone who’d turned their backs on her. First on that list is Riley Bohland, the boy who broke her heart before she could tell him about the baby.

But Kat didn’t count on Riley having his own axe to grind, or that he’d be just as delicious as he was at sixteen. She also didn’t count on her heart opening at the sight of him. When their anger ignites a passion intense enough to burn through two decades of secrets and lies, Kat must question everything she thought she knew about her past. And what about her future? The only place to find the answers may be in Riley’s arms…

    Most Likely to Not Go Far Enough Into the Story

    I thought this book was interesting and exciting with how it flowed effortlessly from the present to the past and back again. I thought the history of the two main characters was an amazing story and I was really rooting for them to make it work. However, there were many problems with this book for me. There were two characters whose place in the book made no sense to me. I kept waiting for them to have a purpose - and couldn't find one. There was a lot of emotion in the book but it seemed to be on the surface rather than real emotion. The book was a quick read but I found myself wishing the book would end faster because I wasn't really enjoying the story line or the twists and turns the story was taking.

    Loved it!

    I absolutely loved this bood! It took me maybe a week to finish and I was pretty satisfied. The only problem i did have was that is was cliche' so you could pretty much tell what was going on before it happened, which I normally dont like. But overall I loved it and had a great time locking myself in my room with this book

    This is an interesting extended family drama

    In Persuasion, West Virginia, high school sweethearts Kat Cavanaugh and Riley Bohland are in love. However, he abruptly ends their relationship without explanation. Being pregnant and feeling alone at sixteen while living with an abusive father and a pathetic mother, Kat leaves town. She is fortunate as trucker Cliff Turner kindly gives her a ride leaving her with his sister Phyllis, who took her in and raised the sixteen year old and her soon to be born child Aiden with love as if they were her daughter and grandson.<BR/><BR/>When Phyllis died, she left Kat with three million dollars. Though grieving her loss, she decides to go home to confront those who deserted her when she most needed them. However, her expectations of triumph is short lived when she meets Riley a doctor, who angrily rips into her for running away with his son; he tells her she will hear from his lawyer. Aden is also upset with Kat for keeping him away from his dad. Worse she still loves Riley.<BR/><BR/>This is an interesting extended family drama that focuses on the premise that you can¿t go home even with money to flaunt. The story line is at its best when it concentrates on the obvious relationships between Kat and her parents, her son, and Riley; it feels overwhelmed when the concentration turns to other angst-laden issues like abuse and stalking etc. Still Susan Donovan provides an entertaining contemporary as Kat and Riley need to overcome distrust if they are to enjoy a second chance at love.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Enjoyable, but not her best...

    I couldn't wait a second to get my hands on this one. Started out really great, & got way offbeat for my taste. It's like someone else wrote the second half. I own all of Susan Donovan's books--except for The Kept Woman. Unfortunately, this one isn't a keeper either.

    This book is too cute. I was out of reading material so I purchased it just to have something to read. I couldn't put it down. I ordered the rest of Susan Donovan's books today.

    Kat and Riley's meeting again after so many years makes this book quite interesting. Kat has a secret and is keeping it hidden but even though they try not to get too close (or at least Kat does), they end up giving eachother a 2nd chance after all.

    Highly Recommend

    This book was a great story. Kat was a 16 year old girl who in one day her life was forever changed. Boyfriend broke up with her, she found out she was pregnant, caught her farther cheating on her mother, kicked out of school, and then to top it off her mom kicked her out of the house too. That's alot for a 16 year old to handle. When she goes back to her home town she begins to understand the whole story. What was behind each event that happened. I don't want to give anything away, but I think you will enjoy this book.

    Entertaining and a little odd

    I actually enjoyed reading this for the most part but as easy and pleasant a read as it was I have to say the plot was just a bit melodramatic. On one hand melodrama is amusing on the other hand it's also implausible and a bit ridiculous. The high points were definitely the long lasting romance between Kat and Riley. The low points were the secondary character dramas.

    While Carrie's insanity was always over the top, what was truly insane was her abrupt and mostly inexplicable about face. Her sudden personality switch was immediately followed by Madeline's equally unexpected (and not in a good way) turn to the dark side for the same reason as Carrie and with a similar epiphany. The story could have been better served in playing up the inherent comedy in the situation which only appeared at the end after a heavy focus on the various damaged relationships. There was just a bit too much going on but all the elements might have been brought together with a little less melodrama, a touch more comedy and letting the machinations of the secondary characters either play out fully rather than neutralized with little effect on the plot.

    I read this book in one day. It just kept my attention the whole time. I gave this book to my mom and would recommend it to anyone who likes a good "escape" book.

    I really liked it.

    It was quite interesting to read. It had a little bit of a twist to it, but I feel that maybe the whole deal with everyone seeming to find some one wasn't really something it should have done. I mean it was good and the main few found people, but someone doesn't do a complete flip. If someone is a villian and another isn't than I wouldn't think they would be able to change so quickly. All in all it was a good boook that kept me reading it. I liked how things unfolded and all.

    Another Donovan Winner

    Susan Donovan's The Girl Most Likely To... is another heartwarming love story.

    Kat Cavanaugh vowed to return to her hometown of Persuasion, West Virginia as a winner. She left after being kicked out of her home, dumped by her boyfriend and pregnant as well. Kat is now rich and still beautiful and vowing to make bad boy Riley Bohland say he was sorry.

    It seems Dr. Riley Bohland has his own issues with Kat's return. Upmost being the 20 year old son she neglected to ever tell him about. Seeing each other again almost makes them both forget their anger.

    Slowly Kat and Riley are learning to trust each other. Their passion for each other has never dimmed after all these years.

    Susan Donovan's books are always a must read as soon as I get them in my hands. Her characters are so true to live and fun to get to know. Kat and Riley have become another couple to adore in a long line of special characters in Susan's books.
