Title: Perfect Imperfections
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Author: Cardeno C
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.
Perfect Imperfections, the newest romance written by author Cardeno C, is set with in the music industry. Jeremy is a rock musician who is used to be surrounded by people who want something from him, including his family. He is surprised when he meets Reg, a sometimes bartender, and finds the man is interested in Jeremy the man, more than Jeremy the rock star. Reg is the perfect counter point for Jeremy and while the chemistry between them is strong, and their passion is really intense, it is the everyday experiences that Reg brings to the younger man’s life that help make this a fun read.
One of the things that really helped make this a stand out story for me was the ‘fake boyfriend’ pretense that the author used. While this is not a new concept in romance stories, the author did a very good job using the time the men were together to move them from acquaintances to friends to lovers.
Perfect Imperfections has a little bit of everything and is sure to be another hit for Cardeno C. If you have not yet tried anything by this author this book would be a great starting point.
