My ParaHangover

I work at a library and read a ton! I read UF, PNR, SF and the young adult versions of the above. I'm currently reading the heck out of new adult so you can say I read contemp romance, too! I work at St. Clair County Library System - Main Branch, Port Huron, Michigan.

Simple Perfection (Perfection, #2)

Simple Perfection (Perfection, #2) - Abbi Glines So, we’re left with a bit of a cliff-hanger at the end of Twisted Perfection. It’s not a major one, we got our HEA and closure. But apparently only one of the many obstacles that were in Della and Woods’ way were eliminated last time around.

It’s time for personal growth on both Della and Woods’ side. That’s mainly what this book is about. Della has much farther to go and it’s the supporting cast she relies heavily upon to help her. This is where the other series’, Rosemary Beach and Fallen Too Far comes into heavy play. Characters from these other series’ play heavily into this story but they aren’t thrust in with no purpose. Their parts in this story both progress the plot and that of their own stories.

Della needs to learn to believe in herself and that she can be everything Woods needs. Unfortunately, those dastardly evil villains are at it again and the gloves are off this time. And I thought they were nasty last time!

There are so many side plots happening in this book that intersect each other, I think my brain might explode trying to not spoil anything. We have MAJOR happenings for characters from Rosemary Beach such as Tripp, Jace, Bethy, even Blaire and Rush from Fallen Too Far (note to self: read Fallen Too Far series, it’s up for 2013 Goodreads Romance Award).

The story moves quick, the romance is just as hot, but the reason why I only gave this sequel 4 stars is because it fell back on an old clichè I absolutely hate: the misunderstanding. It’s like an old sitcom where someone overhears something and then acts upon it. I cringe when I see that used. It wasn’t the entire story but it was there and irked me enough. If you can get past that, you’ll have a 4 ½ – 5 star book on your hands!!!

I am so glad I finally picked up Abbi Glines and she will continue to stay on my TBR list as one of my favorite contemporary romance authors.
