✪ Review ✪ Perfect Imperfections ✪ 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 cant 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

When the author asked if I was interested in reading Perfect Imperfections, I read the synopsis and jumped at the chance.  M/M and rock stars - two of my favourites at the moment - yes please!

Jeremy is Hollywood royalty, and as such is forever in the spotlight, whether it be for his career or his dating history.

Reg is a bartender at a dive bar in no place special.   The one night, a rock star walks into the bar... and the rest is history.

I am a bit over the "gay for you" which is how Perfect Imperfections kind of started out, but there was always that undercurrent with Jeremy that there was more than meets the eye, and as the story progressed we saw more of it.

For a rock star, Jeremy felt pretty tame and innocent for a rock star.  It was actually quite sweet, I don't know about you but I get a bit sick of the "he's a rock star-man whore-must always have dick in a chick" categorisation.  This was a nice change.

 I loved watching the "faux-lationship" between Reg and Jeremy grow.  I went from acquaintances to friendship to confusion to more as the story progressed.

Loved how Reg was with Jeremy.  Yes at first he was there to see the world while acting as Jeremy's "pretend" boyfriend, but there was always something more between them. 

Do Reg and Jeremy get the HEA?  Will Jeremy succumb to the pressures of Hollywood and keep his feelings and relationships a secret/

Nope, for that you are going to have to read for yourself.

This is the first of Cardeno C's books that I have read, but I have already added a few more to my TBR list and to my Kindle.
