It's too late to write a review now, but just in case I forget later:

I loved it!!



“His mouth was hot and hungry, and he kissed the way no man should kiss and still be allowed to run free.”


It has steam, a likable heroine, a hot cop neighbour, suspense, mystery, humor and it was just a book I really needed to read right now.



"I knew you were trouble the first time I saw you."
"What do you mean, trouble?"
She sat up, glaring back at him.
"I am not trouble! I'm a very nice person except when I have to deal with jerks!"
"You're the worst kind of trouble," he snapped. "You're marrying trouble.”

Mr. Perfect
4.5 Stars

Jaine Bright and three of her friends and co-workers get together one night and devise a list of the traits for the perfect man. When the list goes viral, the four women become the target of a deranged killer and Jaine turns to her sexy yet unpredictable neighbor, Detective Sam Donovan, for help. Will they be able to unmask the killer before its too late?

My initial attempt at reading this book as a teen was a dismal failure probably due to the slow build up at the beginning (which is a characteristic of the author’s writing style). However, I’ve recently read and enjoyed other books by Howard, and as this one fit into a challenge, I decided to give it another go and I’m really glad I did.

The first half of the book falls into the contemporary romance genre with the development of Jaine and Sam’s love/hate relationship. With their witty banter leading to numerous laugh-out-loud moments and their incredible chemistry, Jaine and Sam set the pages on fire.

The second half is more romantic suspense as Jaine and her friends are targeted by a killer. In this respect, premise of a list of the perfect man’s attributes is compelling, however, the strong negative reactions that the women receive is more suited to the eighties than the noughties when this book was published. That said, the serial killer subplot is intense (although it is easy to guess the identity of the culprit and their motive) and the climax and resolution are exciting and action packed.

In sum, Mr. Perfect isn’t a perfect read by any stretch of the imagination, but it is well written with a smart and engaging heroine, a sexy and confident hero, well developed secondary characters and an entertaining suspense story. I really need to give books a second chance more often. ( )

I really enjoyed Sam and Jaine's interactions. The Chemistry was great! It was a good quick read for me! ( )

4.5 "What Does the Perfect Man Mean to You" Stars for the story and 5 stars for the narration!

Proving that a great romance is timeless, Linda Howard's Mr. Perfect, first published in 2000, was pretty near close to perfect. Yes, there were the occasional markers that undoubtedly branded this romance gem with some antiquated technology device references (who remembers answering machines, when cell phones were optional, and caller id required a little machine attachment rather than being built-in to your phone?), but the witty banter and raw appeal between the hero and heroine was exactly what I look for in a top-favorite romance. Moreover, Ms. Howard works double time and also manages to mix in a good dose of suspense to further enhance this home library, romance shelf keeper! As if this weren't reason enough to dust off your old copy of Mr. Perfect, or indulge in purchasing a brand new copy, Laura Hick's fabulously, gifted narration makes this a story that is a fantastic audiobook pick!

Ladies the world over have at one time or another pondered the question: What kind of man would be the perfect man? But when 4 co-workers, after a few drinks imbibed after work, decide to put pen to paper with their list of Mr. Perfect attributes, "the List" sky-rockets to instant fame. Not only is their whole workplace buzzing with the gossip of what did and didn't make the list, but even the media takes notice and starts hounding the ladies for interviews and guest appearances. However, not all the attention is good, and when the Mr. Perfect list hits a raw nerve with an individual who takes the list as a personal insult, the girls' bit of fun takes a potentially deadly turn.

Fortunately, for Jaine Bright, one of the four list makers and the main heroine from the Mr. Perfect romantic arc perspective, she has one rather irritating and yet equal parts alluring neighbor (Sam Donovan) who may just be the answer to this potentially dangerous situation. Sam Donovan is the kind of alpha hero romance readers swoon over, and a police detective to boot, so he gets right on the case and makes it his top priority to ensure Jaine's safety. But will he be successful with a seriously unbalanced predator on the loose? Moreover, with the dangerous matter at hand, not too mention their volatile interactions together, does Sam stand a chance of being Jaine's Mr. Perfect?

I'm not a big humor fan, as most humor is lost on me, but the humor in Mr Perfect by Linda Howard was great. I had so many laugh out loud moments. I really enjoyed the characters, the friendship, humor, and sexy side of the story, which were all blended so well together. I can't believe it took me so long to read this one. ( )
