Best-selling romance writer, Darcy Butler, is holding out for perfection in the form of her own carefully-crafted heroes. Once blissfully engaged to be married, Darcy’s post-traumatic commitment phobia is depriving her of the very thing she wants most: her very own happily-ever-after. Now, here she is just six months shy of her thirtieth birthday, and not a Prince Charming in sight.
Successful lawyer, Josh Ryan, is the boy-next-door with a soft spot for the less fortunate, and Darcy’s best friend without benefits. Darcy often comes to him lamenting her love-life, or the lack thereof, whereupon Josh patiently doles out his sage advice. Problem is Josh is in love with Darcy.
But when Darcy finds herself looking into the handsome face of the man who graces the cover of her soon-to-be-released novel, she’s convinced her dreams of perfection have come true. Or have they?
This is a perfect beach read, or lazy day just to get absorbed in a book that didn't have too heavy of a subject line, which was perfect for me after the heavy subject matter of the last book I read.
This book reminded me of a Danielle Steel novel. It was a great story. Girl dreams of Mr Perfect but when Mr Perfect literally falls out of the pages of her most recent novel and shows up at her door, something is missing, while they have fun together, something is missing and she can't quite place it.
Its a classic friends turned lovers story the character are spunky and fun, there were a few lulls but nothing that wasn't too off putting. All in all this was a cute fun book to read, that was a perfect distresser after a long day at work.
I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars
