Reviewed By: Amy
Blurb: Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle of nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can’t say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.
Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there’s nothing pretend about their relationship.
Review: Oh, Cardeno C., this love story is simply perfection. This book is proof that fluffy happy stories are viable, and, if well done, can rock your world.
Reg is my ideal man. Big and manly but patient and warm. So warm, indeed, that Jeremy is drawn to him from the moment he wanders into a dive of a bar for some relief from his life as a famous rock star. After a drunken offer of company, these two lost souls start a journey of friendship and love that is magnificently built. There is no doubt that this story is anything but a love story—no false plots, no thrown in controversies.
JJ is definitely a bit of a spoiled brat who is used to getting his way. I do believe beneath that persona, he is just a lonely little boy whose mother is my version of a monster. At no point did I feel that this was too long or drawn out. I wanted the story to go on forever. The relationship was slow building, and the anticipation was killing me! The first sex scene was absolutely intoxicated, and the rest were just to die for.
Narration: Perfect Imperfections was my introduction to Charlie David, and it was an absolute pleasure meeting him as a narrator. He was entertaining and read the sex scenes incredibly well. He was definitive in his voice, and I was not once confused. Altogether, with Cardeno C. and Charlie David, this audiobook is a definite success.
