Pretty Much Perfect by Sally Johnson
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: Received from publisher to review.
Genre: Contemporary LDS Romance
Book Description: Camille Weston, a recently returned missionary, anticipates returning to college for her degree and perhaps to meet a nice guy. A sensible young woman with her future mapped out, Camille would never do something dangerous—like pick up a stranger on the side of the road. And yet, inexplicably, she does just that. This is one split-second decision that changes everything.
Determined to lend assistance, Camille gets more than she bargains for when she is roped into helping Liam, a handsome British man, with more than just a ride. As they are thrown together over the coming days and their mutual attraction grows, they realize they just . . . click. That is, until she makes a shocking discovery: the mysterious stranger is William Liam Jones, lead singer of the popular band Gear. Camille has never been one to swoon over a celebrity, and she knows her and Liam's lifestyles could never be compatible. But how can she convince her heart to listen to logic?
My thoughts: I love humor in a book. Moments that make me chuckle an laugh get me every time. Pretty Much Perfect starts out "perfectly". Camille is driving home from a job interview when she see's a man stranded and half dressed. For some strange reason, she takes pity on him and gives him a ride. (Exactly what I have stressed to my children to NEVER do.) Their exchanges about his state of dress are hilarious and the fact that she buys him the most unbecoming clothes available. Then belts out a song on the radio in front of him. (Not knowing that it was his song.) It's hard for a book to start out better than this!
Fortunately, the awkward moments keep coming. Ok, not everything is awkward. There is a ton of good things happening too. My main point is that this book kept me coming back for more. It was a good mix of humor, growth, worth of a soul moments, and romance.
Camille is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This book does contain religious content.
