Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It'll be fun, they said.
I know I've closed myself off in a major way over the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It's past time I try to live again or just give up altogether. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I'm standing outside Oren Tenning's bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he'd probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten.
Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye.

The Perfect Ten is the first book I have read from this author, I started it last night and could barely put this one down. i don’t read New Adult Contemporary too often, but wow is this author’s storytelling abilities quite enchanting and this story completely drew me in from the beginning. What we have here is a forbidden romance, two people that care for each other, have been secretly in love with each other, but due to other circumstances haven’t been able to act on it. Oren, has watched Caroline from a far, knowing he could never have her, or it would destroy his relationship with his best friend who is Caroline’s brother. Caroline wants Oren and always has, despite what a womanizer he is. So she is tired of waiting, and goes to his room to have one night of hot sex in the dark, and thus begins a secret relationship. The Perfect Ten is quite the romance, and I was cheering for the couple all the way, and I was on tinderhooks, from beginning to end…this story was intense and tender and had some unique dramatic moments that made the story seem even more fascinating to this reader. The love story was perfect in every way, the characters endearing, the plot never ending, with some twists that are unique to the story. Definitely going to have to buy the other books in the series now…I just need to read all the other stories of characters that are connected to this one. Overall I found the Perfect Ten to be a heart wrenching romance that pulled at my heartstrings….EXCELLENT!!

    New Adult books can be hit or miss for me too but this sounds like an author I need to try!
