Double Book Review by Denise and Val: Perfect Imperfection by 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.
Denise’s Review:
I loved the slow burn on this book.  There was no rush into romance, it was a slow journey into friendship, that later developed into a romance. Reg decides to head out on tour with Jeremy after a chance meeting, and what comes about it is Jeremy learning to just trust and BE.  He doesn’t have to put on airs with Reg, and as time goes on Reg begins to care for Jeremy more and more, taking care of things that have stressed Jeremy out, leaving Jeremy to focus on music.  I just loved their dynamics.  Reg was strong where Jeremy needed him to be strong, and soft where Jeremy needed him to be.  And Reg was able to find love where he least expected it, making him feel special.  4.5 pieces of eye candy for me!
Val’s Review:
Wow this is the first book I’ve read from this author and it won’t be my last. This story was beautiful. I love how the author slowly built the relationship between Jeremy, a famous rock star who looks to escape all the paparazzi always hounding him, and Reg, a down to earth bartender in a small town. Jeremy happens into a small bar hoping to be unnoticed and meets up with Reg, the friendly and can I say, hot bartender. After a drunken night and comfortable bond, Jeremy asks Reg to come on tour with him. Time passes and the build up of the most beautiful friendship and trust forms. We get to see how these two take it to the next level and experience the a beautiful bond. I highly recommend this book. I can’t say enough about what a beautifully written this story is. A definite five pieces of eye candy for me.
