The Guy Most Likely To... by Leslie Kelly, Janelle Denison, & Julie Leto

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.

Underneath It All by Leslie Kelly – “Ever wonder what happened to the guy most likely to...Score with the prom queen?"
Lauren and Seth were high school royalty.  Prom King & Queen except Seth never showed up for the prom leaving Lauren alone and humiliated.  His family up and left with no explanations.  He did leave a message with her folks a few months later apologizing but still giving no reason for abandoning her with no word.  He broke her heart.  Now 10 years later he walks into the reunion looking better than ever and Lauren wants nothing to do with him except she does.  When she finally finds out why he left she feels really bad for doubting him.  Can she get past her broken heart to give him another chance?

Can't Get You Out of My Head by Janelle Denison- “Ever wonder what happened to the guy most likely to... Not date a Playboy Bunny?"
Ali was a busty cheerleader.  Will was a geeky nerd.  When Ali needed a tutor Will stepped up and they became friends.  Will even got the courage to ask Ali out on a date.  When Will calls off the date two hours before it was to take place and informs Ali he doesn’t want to see her anymore Ali is confused and a little bit relieved as her “friends” were giving her grief about going out with the geek.  10 years later Will has turned his geekyness into an asset and is the CEO of his own software security company.  He has grown into his body and is looking much, much, hotter than the wimpy nerd he was in high school.  He doesn’t want to revisit the pain that was high school but he does want to reconnect with Ali and explain why he canceled out on her so long ago. Can the geek get the hot chick?

A Moment Like This by Julie Leto - Ever wonder what happened to the guy most likely to... Ride out of town on a Harley?"
Erica was the good girl.  Scott “Rip” Ripley was the bad boy and never the twain shall meet.  Erica is still stung by the fact that when she tried to get Bad Boy Rip to kiss her when he was tutoring her in French he took off for the hills.  Now 10 years later Erica still wants a piece of that bad boy.  Things have changed for Rip.  He is no longer the angry bad boy.  Back in high school he wasn’t worthy of Erica but he has paid his dues and she might just have bitten off more than she was ready for.

Oh goodness who can’t relate to the horrors of high school and the what ifs and whatever happened too questions.  These three stories are short but sweet and fun to read.
