I have not read a book lately that drew me in so quickly. Michele Gorman captivates her audience from the very beginning. The story focuses on the main character who's always trying to be perfect. She is always trying to keep her friends, family and boyfriend happy. Never focusing on herself and what she wants in life. When the tables turn at work and she finds herself in a bad situation she is determined to not take it without fighting back. She also has some explosions within her family and personal life as she finally works to stand her ground.

I recommend this to all women who want to feel empowered and stand up for what they believe in.

I’ve reviewed two of Michele Gorman’s novels and enjoyed them thoroughly. “The Expat Diaries: Single in the City made Rabid Readers Best of 2014 List. As much as I enjoyed these two works by the talented Gorman, the same cannot be said for Perfect Girl. While technically Gorman’s writing is on point, as usual, the characters were a study in extremes.

I should preface this review by saying that the hit Fox show “New Girl” annoys the heck out of me. While the eccentric charm of Sophie Kinsella’s characters, and some of Gorman’s former characters are entertaining, Carol aka Perfect Girls a mess and is such in a way that some readers will find endearing but I find infuriating. Carol is a chronic people pleaser and because of that allows everyone to use and abuse her for their convenience and for her illusion of having coming off as something she really wants to be but clearly is not— perfect. While readers of this review will say “Well, yeah…no one is perfect,” Carol is delusional and while wanting to head for her goal, could not be more destructive for her own sense of well-being and peace much in the same way as Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones character. Carol may be a character with whom some readers identify, but she’s also one that others (like this reader) would want to slap.

There were moments of humor on the heels of Carol’s thoroughly horrible family and her attempts at a social life to lighten the tone of Carol’s oppression. I found the frequent laughs again reminiscent of Fielding. Carol is not a copy of Bridget, but there’s a general sameness of flavor and Carol’s self-sacrifice in the face of a goal read with the same futility as Bridget’s diary.

Another fantastic book...about me! Some how Michele always writes characters that I can relate to. In Perfect Girl, it was a little painful bc I have so many of the same frustrations that Carol does with balancing everyone else's expectations and needs. Sometimes instead of my own. My favorite part about the book was how it went past the final obstacle resolution. My favorite parts of movies (fiction of non) is how the characters progress after. Even if it's just a little past the event. Thank you Michele! Can't wait for the next book!

I'll admit that the first part of this book was a bit difficult to read because Carole was such a pushover and I wanted to scream at people for having such high expectations of her and push her to stand up for herself. Once she did, however, I really enjoyed this book. It was very funny and the character development was terrific. I would have preferred a different outcome for her romantically though and curious whether anyone else agreed with me. But I can't spoil it!

Perfect Girl wasn't perfect for me. Michele Gorman has a lighthearted style of writing chick lit which has been consistent in all of her novels. However, this one just didn't do it for me. Hard for me to relate to the main character who went above and beyond the call of duty and allowed herself to be sexually harassed day in and day out at her workplace. Also, the beginning of the book where she is being harangued by reporters saying "why did you do it?" is, I believe supposed to draw you in to wondering what a perfect girl could have possibly done wrong.........However, for me it just made me wonder why I had gone ahead and bought the book without reading the SAMPLE first. As I have enjoyed Ms. Gorman's other books, I will continue to explore her future novels. I just won't purchase one without checking it out first again.

The first half of the story you just wanted to smack this girl for being such a pansy! Then when she starts to be some confidence the story becomes flat. I finished the book but didn't look forward to reading it every night.

Perfect Girl is close to a perfect book! The book tells the story of Carol, a twenty something professional who is very well established in all of her relationships as the "perfect" one. She is the perfect employee, girlfriend, sister, daughter and friend until one day when she realizes that perfect isn't all it's cracked up to be. Perfect Girl tells the story of what happens when Carol realizes that giving up everything to please everyone else is a sure road to misery. When Carol decides to stop being perfect she is able to let go and become a much more fulfilled woman.

This book is a fun, easy read but is also thought provoking. The book helps the reader realize that by being perfect Carol is both holding herself, and those she loves, back. I would highly recommend Perfect Girl as well as any other books Michelle Gorman has written. She is a fabulous writer and her stories all feature honest characters who feel like friends!
