Pretty Much Perfect
By Sally Johnson
LDS Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 272 Pages
July 2nd 2018 by Covenant Communications


Camille Weston, a recently returned missionary, anticipates returning to college for her degree and perhaps to meet a nice guy. A sensible young woman with her future mapped out, Camille would never do something dangerous—like pick up a stranger on the side of the road. And yet, inexplicably, she does just that. This is one split-second decision that changes everything.

Determined to lend assistance, Camille gets more than she bargains for when she is roped into helping Liam, a handsome British man, with more than just a ride. As they are thrown together over the coming days and their mutual attraction grows, they realize they just . . . click. That is, until she makes a shocking discovery: the mysterious stranger is William Liam Jones, lead singer of the popular band Gear. Camille has never been one to swoon over a celebrity, and she knows her and Liam's lifestyles could never be compatible. But how can she convince her heart to listen to logic?

My Review

PRETTY MUCH PERFECT is a star-crossed romance between a fresh-off-her-mission gal and an English rock star. Their backgrounds and life situations couldn't be more opposite, but they do say opposites attract. This is a romance for those who like funny and sweet with a dose of stardom.

I loved the beginning of this story! The way Cami and Liam went back and forth when she's trying to figure out how he got into the situation was just hilarious. I loved all the English slang ("luv" is just a fabulous word - particularly when spoken by an English rock star). Liam is definitely charming, charismatic, and confident. And English. Did I mention that already? It's quite a combination. I also felt like Liam was so genuine. He just stated what he thought and what he wanted. Camille took a little longer to grow on me. I also thought she was somewhat of a self-righteous, stuck-up chick in several places. It's like she just couldn't relax and I didn't like how she came across being LDS in that way. She does eventually come around, thank goodness. Cami's family were quite fun and added their own humor and also a steadying influence for Liam and Cami.

I do have to say that I didn't really feel the chemistry between Cami and Liam until about half way through the book. I don't know what it was... but it was missing for me during the first part of this book. However, in the second half it seemed to develop. You could feel it between these two. Stories where the characters are of different faiths and that's a huge wall between them don't always work for me. This one did okay. It fit the situation. The story had some decent tension and some tough choices for these characters. I enjoyed how things worked out. Liam is just as awesome in the end as he is in the beginning. :)

In the end, was it what I wished for? An overall enjoyable LDS romance. Liam has been added to my list of favorite leading men. He was a fabulous character!
