Rachael was a strong, smart, and beautiful woman. On top of that she was a successful photographer. Carl comes into the picture and Rachael isn't the same. Carl is smart and handsome but has a need for control. She doesn’t want to be controlled and yet they have undeniable attraction towards one another. As the two fight their attraction, something from Rachael’s past comes out and all hell breaks loose.
I wasn’t too sure how I would feel about this book due to a character from the first book in it. I was pleasantly surprised. I love Rachael’s character! She is fun, smart, and very quick on the comebacks. Oh and Amy is such a sweetheart! I really did want her to get her happily ever after. This book was a good follow up to the first one. I will say there are sensitive/violent scenes in this book so proceed with caution. I give this 4 stars
Perfection is a gimmick.
It’s something they use to sell you s*** you don’t need. The perfect home. The perfect family. The perfect marriage. Photos of that perfect life are all around us, but none of it exists.
This story is about Rachael, a photographer. Her boss is her ex-boyfriend who she once thought was her ever after and the love of her life. Her world ended when one day she came home from a photo shoot to catch him in bed with another woman. Not only did this woman take the love of her life, soon her perfect too.
Carl Williamson: He has the perfect job, the perfect house, a beautiful little girl, and the perfect marriage. That is till his wife suddenly died of cancer.
"I know better because I take those photos. It’s all a ruse to make us think that's what we want. Behind closed doors, the house is a mess, the family is fighting, and that loving couple hates each other. I prefer a different city every week, laughing friends, and a variety of lovers."
Rachael & Carl meet at a photo shoot, but that wasn't their first meeting. They've met before and there was a misunderstanding that Rachael ran away from and hasn't seen Carl since... until now, and boy do the sparks fly!
The misunderstandings get cleared up and they have great chemistry but they both have baggage and they don't know what to do about their feelings.
they be able to help each other get through their turmoil?
I loved watching Rachael and Carl fall in love. This story was written so well and kept my attention throughout.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Cutting Muse Blog Review
Nothing is perfect in this world and if you strive for a perfect life, reality will soon hit you in the face. Rachael's boss is her ex cheating boyfriend, a man in her life that she thought once loved & would soon get her happily ever. It all came crashing down one day when she came home from a photo shoot catching him in bed with another whom soon not only took her man but her perfect job.
Carl Williamson, the guy who has the perfect job, the perfect house, a beautiful daughter, but he also use to have the perfect marriage till his wife died suddenly of cancer.
"There is no perfect. Perfection doesn't exist. Life is messy and filled with things that happen daily but shouldn't happen at all; however, you pick yourself up and go forward."
Rachael & Carl have a chemistry out of this world but their lives are a mess and reality sets in that neither one knows what to do about this feelings that are quite unattainable. Rachael can't get away from her messed up Boss who is also her Ex and Carl can't move on from his late wife.
"When things get bent and broken, it doesn't mean they should get tossed aside. They just need to find the other half who can make them whole-the other half who can turn their imperfections into something beautiful."
I did like the story and it was well written but I wouldn't say it caught my attention enough to want to read it again which is how I score as a 5 star read for me. There were a lot of times in the book that I wish that it was more dramatic but never got to feel the true adrenaline rush of a page turner.
I was gifted this ARC in exchange for an honest review for a Book Blitz Tour. This is my first book from this author that I came across and read synopsis which intrigued me enough to take a chance.
