WLK synopsis

Perfect Imperfections - AudioPerfect Imperfections

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.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)


Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


Every time I read a new Cardeno C book, it becomes my favourite one. This is no exception.

It has a beautifully love story, of getting to know someone before jumping into bed with them. It has witty one liners, humour throughout the book. It has angst and passion, it has sex and sorrow. Basically, it has everything, all wrapped up in a neat little package of 205 pages.

I LOVED JJ and Reg, I really did. Their meeting was in the very first 3 pages was sweet. And that filtered through the whole book. Dont get me wrong, it is HOT in places, but Reg is such a sweet person, and he doesnt change in the book, at all. Once JJ and Reg make their decision for Reg to accompany JJ on tour, Reg looks after JJ, just like he did on their first meeting. JJ needs Reg, like NEEDS him, but JJ doesnt see it, not straight away anyway. The attraction of Reg to JJ was not immediate, no instalove here, but it creeps up on them both. JJ more so than Reg. AND I LOVED THAT! Its well over half way before Reg and JJ begins to truly discover each other, and its so beautifully written! It really is.

As is usual for Cardeno C's work, there is no falling out, no major breakup/make up, no psycho ex. Its just a stunningly well written love story, that is my new CC favourite!

Oh, and the Fleschlight never had it so good! PHEWEEE!

And yes, Reg is the bomb :-)


5 full stars.

AUDIO REVIEW

I also had the opportunity to review this book in audio form.

Charlie. David. Narrates.

Do I need to say more? The man is a genius at voices, emotions, story telling. He captures Reg's patience with JJ perfectly. He captures JJ's meltdown 's brilliantly. His portrayal of both men is perfect. He gets across all the emotions that these men have, in all the right places. Mr David's reading voice is deep and clear. His voices are easily defined, and makes listen king to a multi person conversation easy.

I found myself reading this along side listening. Why?? No freaking idea. It's not something I've done before BUT it will be something I try again. Charlie David in my ear, with Cardeno C's work before me? A perfect way to spend the afternoon.

This is not that first CC/David combination. And I certainly hope it won't be the last. I love them together!!

5 Stars for the narration, making a full 5 stars in total.

I received this audio from WLK Book Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.
