Teaser Tuesday: The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick.

The Boy Most Likely To –
Dial Books

“Mmm,” Jase says, opening the refrigerator and staring into it in that guy way. Like all the answers to any question I’d ask him are in the crisper or pasted onto the label of the orange juice.
— Chapter 18

“Always asking for trouble, Tim.”
“You started it. Trouble pretty much finds me without having to ask directions.”
— Chapter 23

It almost shames me to admit how long I’ve put off reading this book. Not because I dreaded it, but because I didn’t want it to end. If that makes any sense? I capital L Loved My Life Next Door and didn’t want to let go of the Garretts then and I sure as hell don’t want to let go of them now. Dear Huntley Fitzpatrick: There are enough Garretts left, pretty please with lost of cherries on top write more about them?
But on a very serious note this book was at the same time all I expected it to be in terms of the writing and emotions and managed to throw me completely for a loop in terms of plot. It’s hard to say anything about it without any spoilers just know this: Whatever you’re expecting is going to happen based on you assumptions after a certain revelation, think again ... and then think again.

You can totally read this book and its prequel independently, which is a feature I really love as it enhances the characters if you know them from the other book but doesn’t distract you if you don’t. What is you opinion on interlocking yet stand-alone books? Let’s hear from you in the comments!

Sounds like a great read.

This sounds great. As for interlocking standalones - I personally LOVE them, probably more than series if I'm honest. Thank you for sharing this one:) Here's mine -

Great Teasers! I especially like the image of the guy standing in front of the refrigerator. So real!

I do that. Not read a book because I don't want it to end!
