Another 5 star read from Ms. Mooney. I have loved this series and each can be read as a stand alone. I loved these characters, Deb and Mick, each striving for acceptance in their own way and maybe finding it with each other. Deb has a past that haunts her and Mick has let down his father with some choices he has made. This story had me hooked from the start, I wanted to see Deb finally find happiness. The suspense of who was causing her problems and why, had me on the edge of my seat. I also loved that the characters from the other books were also in this one. The series is wrapped up in the end perfectly. B.L. definitely has a fan in me, if she writes it, I will read it with no hesitation.

This story is so compelling and dynamic! I couldn't put it down, even for a second.

Deb: Surviving a disturbing ordeal and being repeatedly haunted by her actions leading to her murdering her brother’s fiance's, ex boyfriend... whom she was cheating on her husband with.

"My crime?
I cheated on my husband and then killed the man I cheated with. Would you still accept me?"

Deb already had a precariously rocky relationship with her family and was caving under the pressure it caused.

She is straining to move on with her life after everything she's been through. She goes to therapy and is trying to open her own florist’s shop. Coping by closing everyone out.

Her landlord, Mick, is not someone she expected to be supportive, but he is. Even though she doesn't want or think she needs it.

With setbacks happening at her shop, she's afraid that her past wouldn't lead to the future she was hoping for.

Mick: Was trying to open his own restaurant like he dreamed, even if it was against family tradition and his legacy.

Can Deb capture and obtain Mick's love and support, while having her family and friends backing her?

This being the third book in the stand alone, Striving series, was both impressive and meaningful.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Ever since I read “Striving for Normal” BL Mooney have won me right then and there as a reader. Every time I see her name pop up into my inbox for an invite I know I have to support her because her writing is just beyond words. I was a little sadden that I never got the chance to read “Striving for Perfection” because I never even knew that it came out. I knew from talking to her that it was but I never knew when, so I was happy to say that I had a chance to read it and write a review for it also. Anyway, let me start off by saying bravo to BL and giving her kudos because I knew from the beginning Deb had a back story to tell and I knew it would be a good one. Craig was a manipulator and he used her because he saw that she was weak and seek would try to get attention from anywhere she could. After reading about her background and how she never had a childhood because she had to be there for her younger brothers and sister it was ashamed. But I was also happy that she met Mitch, she thought it would be a bad thing but he also helped her to realize certain things about herself. I think she also misjudged a lot of people, including Drew, I mean let’s be real she wasn’t in her right mind when she was with Craig because of what he was and the frame of mind she was in at the time. But then again Dennis had to learn how to forgive her, and I was happy to see that happen. Deb also had to learn how to forgive herself, love herself, and get to know who she really and truly is on the inside and that’s why I loved her therapist Joseph, he never sugar coated he made her see. Now to the sexy parts, those sex scenes I tell you where so damn hot and sensual. I love me some Mitch, he was an all around gentleman and I was happy she got him in her life. Not only that but there is a very wonderful suspenseful twist that I am sure BL your readers will not want to miss. I cannot wait to find out what else you have in store for us lady, keep the great stories coming.

Deb had survived a trauma where she took a man’s life. Her actions leading up to that event haunted her and her already shaky relationship with her family seemed to be buckling under the strain. The man was not just anyone – he was the ex-boyfriend of her brother’s fiancé. Struggling to keep moving forward with her own life in the aftermath, Deb was regularly attending therapy while concentrating on opening her own florist’s shop. Keeping the world – and all her relationships - at arm’s length was the only way she knew how to cope. As her story was tantalizingly revealed, it became clear that Mick, her landlord and unexpected supporter, was there to help her whether she wanted it or not. She struggled with her actions leading up to the event and with mishaps occurring at the shop she feared even more that the past was not going to let her lead the life she was afraid to hope for. Mick, fighting the bonds of family tradition and legacy, was trying to fulfill his own dream of opening his own restaurant while looking to his own divided family for the support they both needed. With family and friends rallying around her, could Deb reach out and accept Mick’s love and support?

This is the third book in the Striving series and the first book I have read by this author. The story reads well as a stand-alone though it is clear supporting characters had their own stories which led up to the telling of Deb’s own story. Deb and Mick were complex characters and I loved the way the point of view seamlessly shifted from one to the other throughout. Both were dealing with family issues and the theme of acceptance was woven into both their lives.
