Despite multiple degrees and business success, in his heart Jeremy Strauss feels he’s never measured up. While he hasn’t lacked for men or women to share his bed, Jeremy has yet to find someone who sees beyond his muscles and perfect smile. Taking it slow with a lover isn’t how he operates, but something about the shy accountant he rescues in a snowstorm makes him want this time to be different. So what if Blake drops little comments here and there about Jeremy’s pretty face? Their relationship is perfect.
Or is it?
Lonely most of his life, Blake Myers is as careful with his heart as he is with a balance sheet. The last thing he expects is for a man like Jeremy to fall for him, and he can’t help but wait for the bubble to burst on their relationship. When the stress of a professional crisis turns personal, Blake sees the perfect relationship he and Jeremy have built start to crumble. Caught in an ever-tightening web of lies, rather than wait for Jeremy to leave him, Blake breaks it off and vanishes.
Perfection is an illusion.
Jeremy doesn’t know which way to turn and for the first time in his life, he’s lost and uncertain. Believing he’s no longer the man Jeremy needs, Blake sinks deeper into despair. Both men struggle with secrets, lies, and hurtful memories until they are forced to look inside their hearts and learn the truth—that love is perfectly imperfect.
Perfect is a second chance romance that will make you ache, break your heart a little, but ultimately leave you with a smile and a happily ever after. It’s my first book by Felice Stevens and such a great introduction.
Blake and Jeremy are such a great couple. Their journey is rocky, emotional, but also beautiful. I absolutely adored how right Jeremy is for Blake. He was such a strong support and determined to not allow Blake’s insecurities to overtake him. His patience and willingness to be Blake’s haven made me fall head over heels for Jeremy. He never gives up on him. These two had me a constant state of tears and swoon. And don’t even get me started on those sex scenes!
Felice Stevens writes a beautiful story of second chances, acceptance, and unconditional love. Add in to that super hot sexy times and a couple you just want to make it to their HEA and you a book you need to read. 4.5 stars.
