Gray is... Well, Gray. I know it doesn't mean any sense to you, but when you meet him you will understand. I liked how he goes from this careless playboy to a guy you immediately fall for. I don't even noticed when I gonne from just smiling and shaking my head at his antics to the moment when Gray crawled into my heart. But I think that was because beside the fact when that man loves, he does it with his whole soul, his another one of best qualities is his family. They may be crazy and sometimes can drive you bonkers, but they are one of the best gifts a man can give you. Because they are the kind of family that will always has your back and make you feel loved.
CC got depths, that at beginning you couldn't guess she has. At first all you see is this funny, sassy girl who's is quite happy with her life. But later you are allowed to see into her soul and you see that she has insecurities and scars, that still were bleeding. They are inflicted by other peoples flaws and selfishness. I has my suspicions and at the end I have to say I was not happy that I was right. It made me sick and so pissed that people can be so depraved and happy to inflict wounds on others. In those moments I wanted that CC fought back more, instead of just taking it. Don't get me wrong. CC is strong girl. But even strong one can be broken after being hit over and over. I was just happy CC didn't let it to cripple her completely. That no matter her fears, CC let love into her heart.
When Jordan announced that she's trying something different with her new series, I wasn't worried. I had fate, that even though it wouldn't be as raw, gritty and action packed series with tattooed, dirty bikers, she will give us something special to stroke and to chew on. And I was right. It's a success. I was invested into this story. Actually, I was so into it, I ended reading in one go overlooking my commitments. Whatever. Who cares about them anyway, right? I had a wonderful time. And that's what important. I so can't wait to read more about this colorful family.
I hate to pigeonhole an author, it's not fair to them, and I'm not implying here that Jordan was, it's just that when I think of her work, I immediately think of gripping, gritty, raw emotion. I think of hardened, tattooed men and strong-willed and sassy heroines. But after reading The Perfect Stroke, I'm thrilled to say that sexy romantic comedy is yet another genre that totally fits within Jordan Marie's wheelhouse. She is a natural, folks, and she totally nailed it!
This book was so funny and so very sexy. I loved everything about Gray and CC--the chase, their off-the-charts chemistry and their fabulous banter. I loved all the secondary characters, especially Gray's family, and I am praying to the gods of written romcoms that they bless Jordan Marie with inspiration so that we get their stories as well. She totally took me by surprise with this book, and it was an amazing thing. As a long time fan, to see her spreading her wings and taking flight in a different direction was, well, exhilarating and a breath of fresh air. Truthfully, I shouldn't have been surprised though, I've extolled the virtues of Jordan's exceptional writing abilities in reviews of her previous works, but still, there is no other way to say it than I was surprised, in the very best of ways.
I've always said that Jordan is a natural storyteller, and never ever has it been more evident than it was here in this book. I adore romantic comedies, and The Perfect Stroke was a fantastic one. So if you're thinking about picking up this book, but you're a bit wary, don't be. Let go of what you think you know of Jordan Marie and read this book.
