Zoe is used to taking care of herself and has long ago accepted that if anything bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to her. So when she loses her job over something most bosses would probably be happy with and her life starts going down hill from there she doesn't expect it to get any better. She certainly didn't expect any help from the loud jerk next door, but then again she has nothing to lose so puts her trust in him and hopes for the best. What she didn't expect was the once in a lifetime opportunity that he offers her through an arrangement where they both benefit and no one is supposed to get hurt, but she should have known better because her luck has never been that good.
Like most Bradfords, Trevor has a soft spot for food, but that's about all. He leads a pretty straightforward life and likes to keep things simple and that includes his relationships. He wants the perfect woman and knows exactly what she'll be like. So when he discovers much to his horror that he's thinking about his frumpy little neighbor he decides the best way to get his head straight is by working her out of his system. He'll keep her around, but only until he finds perfection. 4.5 (FIVE) BOUNDLESS STARS
It is weird the things I retain. The central aspect of this book I retained from 2012 is the date that Zoe and Trevor go on. What I love about Perfection is Zoe, she isn't perfect like Haley, she is average, plump and can't cook. She has low self-esteem, and she is most women. At least most women I know. Trevor is gorgeous, arrogant, and food-obsessed like all Bradfords, it's a thing. He has a weird idea of what his perfect woman should be the complete opposite of Zoe, and he doesn't even realize that she is perfect for him. I liked the realness of this story. The very hot guy was hooking up with a frumpy plump girl but only on the DL. He was just waiting for something better to come along. Until he realizes there isn't anything better and he screwed up. I am giving Perfection 4.5 Boundless Stars, and it was a lot of fun to listen too.
