Publisher's Summary

Cara McLeod, the girl most likely to have the perfect marriage, is now divorced and, in her own words, "fat, frumpy, and over forty." The thought of facing former classmates - and the ex-husband who dumped her - at her high school reunion terrifies her. Cajoled into attending by her kids and her best friend, Cara enlists help at the gym to lose weight and look great for the reunion. Personal trainer Finn Cooper is more than willing to help - but does he have to be so to-die-for gorgeous?

Finn thinks Cara is perfect just the way she is. She's everything he wants in a woman, except for one thing - she can't get past the fact that he's eight years younger. To Finn, age and weight are just numbers. But can he convince Cara the numbers she worries about add up to only one thing for him - love?

Beautiful Story

This was my first Jana Richards's book. This is a sweet story, between a younger man and an older woman. The characters have flaws, and they seem real. Cara is a beautiful, and strong. She is divorced, with two beautiful daughters. Unfortunately, her ex is a selfish man, and her mom is a toxic person. Difficult to keep a good self esteem in these conditions. Finn is a handsome character, loving and supportive. I like their chemistry. This story is beautifully written. I love the scene when she meets her former classmates, and her ex-husband, at the high school reunion. I love the ending. Leigh Linley did a great job with the narration. She has a beautiful voice, easy to understand, and the characters were easy to distinguish. I enjoyed my listening.I was given a free review copy of the audiobook — at my request — and have voluntarily left this review.

Insecurities of a middle-aged woman

The Girl Most Likely is probably one of the most relatable audiobooks I have ever listened too! I'm 37 years old and might be weighing more than I did when I graduated high school. The things that bothered Cara don't bother me as much as they did her. I feel like we all change after 20 years. We've had kids, if we can. We've packed on more pounds or at least we don't like where our weight is sitting. The breasts no longer sit as high as they did 25 years ago.

I think seeing the ex with a younger woman would be was would get me. I would want to stick it to him. You know, look at what you're missing buddy. Yeah' his 25 year old girl friend might have breasts 3 inches higher than mine but older women have a different confidence. They have a bit more understanding of life and dare I say we know what's happening between the sheets! So obviously Finn knows what's up!!

Anyways, sorry I got a bit hung up on Cara and her inner battle to be comfortable in her skin and with who she is. I loved Finn and I'm so happy the author made him a real man and not just some body builder man of gym perfection. He's had his own struggles and really seems to respect Cara for wanting to fix what shes unhappy with. What starts as a friendship builds into more but they still have that deep rooted friendship that helps them talk through their personal fears and struggles.

The narration was done by Leigh Linley. I felt she did fine with Cara but Finn wasn't the best. There was also a slight echo sound to the sound. It was a bit distracting. Really though, seeing this narrators name on another audiobook wouldn't turn me off from the story. I enjoyed it for the most part.

The Girl Most Likely

Jana Richards has written a winner with The Girl Most Likely. I had the pleasure of listening to the audio version of this book. Leigh Linley's performance made the book even more fun and delightful. I could not help but giggle throughout this short story. Cara is one character that I could relate to and I believe so many other readers would too.
I am giving The Girl Most Likely a well deserved five plus stars. I loved it and highly recommend it.
I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Addictive

Absolutely loved this as an audiobook. I this is my first romance. I usually listen to Cozy mysteries or mythology.

Cara has never moved on from her divorce. She’s has two beautiful daughters but feels her life isn’t going on a direction. Lucky for her one man is about to change everything.

Her class reunion is coming up and she wants to look good. Finn is a guy who she meets at work and he ends up helping her. He’s younger, fitters and easy on the eye. Cara doesn’t see the things he sees in her. Finn is about to help her make everything fall into place.

ARC. My review is my own and honest.

Life lessons can be hard but . . .

There are times when we much grow and build or grown to move on. I think it was a little harder than Cara thought to move on with life after divorce. She tried going back to school. She tried being an intern. She tried being single and happy. She still was working on her self-esteem. She had baggage to lose and a life to reclaim. She had life lessons to learn even when they are hard and not exactly what one wants to hear or learn.

Finn was the guess that turned in to something more. The something more that Cara was not expected or fully aware of how much she needed in her life. Life lessons can be hard but sometimes they come when you are not expecting them.

Narration was fine. It was the audio quality that I had an issue with. There was an echo or tunnel sound to it. I just guess it left me feeling like I did not get the entire experience.

It's an okay audiobook

Good audio book. Don't think I'll relisten to it
Four star. I think just reading it on your own is better than listening to it. But it's still a good book no matter what.
