The Girl Most Likely To .

Kat Cavanaugh left her hometown in West Virginia at the age of sixteen and didn’t look back. She had caught her father having an affair, found out she was pregnant, got kicked out of school, and dumped all in the same day. Now she has come back to town dressed to kill, rich, and ready to start collecting apologies from everyone who let her down. Who better to start with than the father of her son and the man who broke her heart? But things don’t go quite the way she planned. Will Kat give into her feelings for Riley or will she finally move on?
At first I didn’t like Kat too much. She seemed spoiled and a little shallow. But as the story progressed you really get to know her and she grows on you. Riley, too, is a little unlikable since he dumped Kat just to make his father happy, not thinking how it would affect her. But they both had their reasons for what they did and they ring true through the story. At the heart of it, this story is about growing up and forgiveness. It made me cry and I couldn’t put it down. Ms. Donovan was a favorite of mine and I am really happy to see her return to writing. Her talent has been sorely missed. Please don’t make us wait too long for another!

Book Blurb for The Girl Most Likely To .

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…
