Their very first interaction with one another he gets so angry he says, "Its not like you need it anyway!" (talking about food)… So Zoe begins to starve herself. Like, literally starving herself on a less than 1200 calorie a day diet. She passes out, she loses over 30 pounds in two months, she is happy when the Bradford men steal her lunch… It's just so sad because I understand it.
But like I said, Trevor does fix what he did wrong. He falls in love with her and make her eat because he realizes he loves her and her curves. He makes her feel special and he does give a good "I love you so just shut up about it" talk.
All in all I loved and hated it.
Trevor is your classic playboy with the perfect body. Used to having the 'perfect' looking woman any time he wants.
Zoe is more the nerdy, shy, used to being a doormat type girl. So she definitely has some insecurities that I think most of us (that can relate to her) have. It's kind of like if Henry Cavill started hitting on me....umm I'm gonna question what part of hell froze over for that to happen. I mean I'm fabulous and he would be lucky, but still.
It's hard to watch Zoe struggle with her diet. Trevor realizes she is starving herself and he threatens to cut her off from 'the lovin;' if she doesnt start taking care of herself. As well as he shows her, she can eat more and still make healthy choice. A lot of reviews put him down. I actually really liked his character. He was taken by surprise by his attraction for her. And I wanted to put in a quote from the book that to me really shows his love for her so SPOILER BELOW
"She was beautiful, smart, funny, a great wife and mother, a horrible singer, a decent cook, and baked things ever their dogs wouldn't touch, and she was his and he wouldn't change a thing about her." <3
If I'm honest, I have to admit that after a couple chapters, I wasn't sure if this book was for me. I kept going because I trusted Steph's opinion and there was something kinda charming about the characters, even if there were a couple things bugging me. I'm really glad I kept going, too. It was a delightfully quirky, romantic and funny book.
Though this was the second book in the series, I didn't really feel lost or like I'd missed much by not reading the first. (Though I do plan to go back and read it at some point.) The only thing that was kind of a mystery was the Bradford obsession with food. I'm not sure if the first book clears that up any or not. While odd, I could still read and enjoy the book without knowing the trigger for their obsession.
The characters totally made this book. I liked Zoe pretty well from the start. I could sympathize with her over her weight issues and Trevor's attitude in the beginning towards her made me really skeptical I would come to love him. There's just no easy way to put this – he was a douche. He was attracted to her, but didn't know what to do with those feelings and it wasn't pretty at first. BUT, he mellowed. He accepted his attraction and I absolutely loved watching him fall for the woman who is unlike the women he's usually attracted to. I think I loved it most of all because of the way his character transformed and the awkwardness that ensued as he accepted his feelings. They were super cute together once he stopped being a jerk.
Perfection was funny and heartwarming and definitely gave me plenty of feels. As uncertain as I was in the early chapters, I liked this one a lot. Plus the blurb for the following book caught my attention so I'm pretty sure I'll continue on with this series... and I still want to go back and read the first one.
Zoe and Trevor are neighbors, each living in one half of a house owned by Trevor. And he makes her life difficult, to say the least. They bond over a love of reading - she reads, he listens. Then they become friends with benefits. Then they become so much more.
I liked that Haley and Jason from the first book were also in this one but I felt like there were some parts of this one that could have been expanded on - such as Zoe's issues with food. Overall it was a great story though and I look forward to the others.
