Book Description

The Perfect Trilogy:
Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a bestselling book, How to Have the Perfect Life--until they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up their lives. The worst part's sort of true. Together they make a pact: they each have one year to face down their fears--and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two!

Book Three: Too Perfect

A Wandering Duckling and a Two-Faced Beast--a Perfect Fairy Tale?

Defying the terrible sense of direction that's kept her form traveling, Amy ships out as a nanny on a Caribbean cruise-and promptly gets lost when they stop on St. Bart's. Now she's stranded without any money-or even a toothbrush!

Locals say that Gaspar, owner of the island's crumbling fortress, is a hideous recluse. They call him La Bête, "The Beast." But when Amy applies for a job at the fort, she meets only his charming assistant, Beaufort. In truth, the two are the same man-billionaire Byron Parks, who's desperately seeking privacy and peace.

Amy aches for the miserable man secluded in the fortress tower. Through e-mail, they begin an imaginative exchange of romantic fantasies. Byron is hopelessly smitten with his sexy storyteller-but will his real-life make-believe ruin their happy ending?

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ortolon's enjoyable final novel in her Perfect trilogy (Almost Perfect; Just Perfect) spins a good, old-fashioned contemporary fairy tale, but conscious suspension of disbelief is required. It's time for nurturing, curvy, Texas-bred Amy Baker to face her ultimate fear—traveling alone. She plans a working vacation cruise as a nanny, but gets fired and stranded on the Caribbean island of St. Barts before the trip begins. Determined to finish her challenge, Amy takes a job as a housekeeper for Guy Gaspar, a disfigured man who lives in his extravagant fort's tower and never shows his face. Or so she's told by his jolly French assistant. In reality, the lone tenant is sexy Hollywood golden boy Byron Parks, who seeks anonymity from the paparazzi. In an Oscar-worthy performance, Byron plays both assistant and "beast," and Amy falls in love with "Guy" over the fort's intercom. In this novel's case, the title is right on: the fanciful plot twists are fun, but Amy's character reads juvenile, and Byron is too sensitive for a playboy, even one with a heart. (Nov.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 3 November 7, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Maddy, Amy, Christine, and Jane were roommates in college ten years ago. Jane became a TV anchor, but has now just published her first self-help book "How To Have The Perfect Life". Maddy, Amy, and Christine are thrilled for Jane, until they realize that Jane has used their lives as bad examples! The three decide to prove Jane wrong. They each have one year to face their biggest fear.

Amy Baker is the nurturer. Her mother is deceased and she cares for her grandmother, Meme, who is a consummate worrier. When not caring for Meme, she runs her business Traveling Nannies. Amy has so much love to give, but is way too shy about herself to risk getting to know anyone. She has battled her body weight most of her life and is extremely self conscious about her extra body fat. Ever since she decided to never date, much less marry, she has been able to stick to her diet. The weight is coming off. Not easily, because Amy LOVES to cook, but it IS melting away. Yet she still feels F-A-T and U-G-L-Y. Meme's worrying tendencies have rubbed off on Amy over the years. Amy has an awful sense of direction and is the only person who gets lost every single time she goes somewhere new. Maddy and Christine decide that Amy's challenge is to face her fear of strange places and go on a trip for about three weeks. So when a nanny is needed for a Caribbean cruise, Amy goes herself instead of sending an employee.

Amy is fired from her nanny position early on. She runs off to have a good cry, and ends up being left behind by the ship. Amy is stranded on St. Barts, one of the most expensive islands in the Caribbean, and all she has is the clothes on her back. Determined not to run home, she decides to make this a working vacation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The conclusion to the Perfect trilogy - my favorite ! December 20, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The final of the three 'Perfect' contemporary romances. The three novels tell the story of Maddy, Christine and Amy who find themselves as examples of want not to do in their university roommate `how to book.' They decide to show old roommate that they can face their fears. Maddy is first with `Almost Perfect' and must get her art into a gallery and move past her husband's death. Christine is second with `Just Perfect' must face her fear of chair lifts and her problems with always wanting to please her family. Amy in `Almost Perfect' is the final novel and Amy must travel outside of Austin TX and face her fear of always getting lost and leaving her protective home. All three novels have strong men who encourage and support the changes and choice the female character must conquer. Buy them all and take a weekend for yourself and Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally perfect... May 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I never write reviews but I'm writing one for 'Too Perfect' because this book was very well written. I downloaded the first book and finished it yesterday and had to stay up and finish the series.

With modern women who have great depth and complicated emotions, friendships, fears, and aspirations, Julie doesn't shy away from exploring each facet of every character with great humor, sarcasm (when I laughed out loud on page 2 of the first book, I knew that this was going to be a great series), and surprising wisdom. I found myself writing down some of her quotes so that I could remember them. Amy's story was perfect. It's a superb interpretation of the Beauty and the Beast story (this may not be a fair analogy because the book is so much more), but this book takes two wounded characters and makes their story and trajectory real, natural, and beautiful. And, it's a great conclusion to the trilogy. Great job, Julie! I'm looking forward to reading more of your work. But, I'm curious, this all started with metaliterature (Jane's 'How to Have a Perfect Life) - unless I missed it, we don't know much about Jane other than she's the friend who started the whole mess of the dare and who is no longer great friends with the other girls. Is this the end of her story or will their friendship be reconciled at some point? Clearly, not all stories have a resolution or a happy ending, but I just wonder, Julie, if you ever read this, if you have Jane's story inside you somewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOLLYWOOD! May 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After having read the first two books, I wasn't sure I wanted to read this one after having read its teaser. For me, it was a bit too much of Beauty and the Beast meets You've Got Mail. It was hard to keep my prior images out of my head. I really saw the connection Byron had with his struggles and Amy with hers. How common is it for us to try to hide our imperfections and need to feel loved for who we are? Both characters exemplify this struggle. I really liked how they tried to help each other grow emotionally and break their perspective barriers. Thanks Julie for a great series! Shame it had to end that that I voraciously read all three books in less than three

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first two
It was ok, but reminded me of a weird twist on Beauty and the Beast. The premis was silly.
But loved the second book and liked the continuation of the characters.

Very hokey. Unrealistic and silly, but if you already read the first two you might as well read the third.

More About the Author

I'm a late bloomer when it comes to reading -- and writing. I didn't discover either joy until I discovered romance novels in my early twenties. Now, I'm totally addicted. My biggest joy is bringing all my interests together in my books, to have the chance to celebrate the things that excite me through my characters.

Since I love to travel, all my books are set in places I've actually been. Sometimes those real places morph into fictional places -- like Pearl Island -- but I try to capture the magic of the setting and people in all my books, to make writing them like a trip to a wonderful world where good always triumphs and love always ends in Happily Ever After -- against all odds. That's what makes life worth living, and books worth reading: when someone grabs the brass ring.
