Review: Perfect Imperfections
Perfect Imperfections - Cardeno C.

I've read this so many times I lost count.
This is one of those books that gets better the more times I read it. Bumping it up to 5 stars because of that.

---------------

Jeremy is a famous rockstar, but he is so tired of being in the spotlight and not being able to be himself. He gets drunk at an unknown bar at one night and meets Reggie (Reg). They hit it off and Reg takes Jeremy home because he is no condition to drive.

Jeremy is dying for someone to go on his tour with him, someone he can trust. So he asks Reg to come. Reg is an adventurous kind of guy so he says yes immediately.

Jeremy is ‘sure’ he is not gay… Reg is gay and is sure Jeremey is not as straight as he thinks he is. These two become very close friends and Reg is the solid rock in Jeremy’s hectic life.

But after a few months on the road Jeremy finds out that it is probably not that straight of him to constantly cuddle and sleep next to his best friend. Nor is it very straight of him to join another man in the shower.

Reggie notices the change in Jeremy and just kind of eases him into the whole gay thing. A touch here, a touch there. Jeremy has no choice but to surrender to his feelings.

Reg was just so sweet. I loved how he took care of Jeremy. He knew just what Jeremy needed. And Jeremy may have been older than Reg, but in some ways he was just so naive. Absolutely adorable.

There was one part I didn't like and that was the fleshlight scene. But I have to admit with every re-read it got less weird.

Overall, a sweet, angst free story.

Harry Styles walks into a bar and picks up me. Le sigh.
Perfect Imperfections - Cardeno C.

Like Isaac Mizrahi would say, "this is divine,dahling." 

 

Imagine some super music star coming into your bar, in my fantasy it's Harry Styles, or maybe Jared Leto I'm not picky, and you end up going on tour with him to be his friend and keep him calm, which turns into the sexy kinda stuff you've had wet dreams about since puberty. Mebe that's just me. Anyways, that's the 411 on this book. I'm in luv with Reg and Jeremy. I'll take both of them. I've got stamina, honey, yes I do. ;)

This is the Cardeno I know and love. I absolutely adored this book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

 

Both Jeremy and Reg were so cute. I loved their relation because first of all they were friends.

 

And Reg supported Jeremy and gave him time to figure his feelings on his own and did not act without consent.

 

Their love was so pure but above all, it was healthy. I loved that and you have no idea how much I love those kind of stories.

 

With this book I've found my lost love for Cardeno again.

So I had a moment...
Perfect Imperfections - Cardeno C.

and thankfully that's all it turned out to be a fleeting moment where I started to worry that maybe...just maybe, this book that so many of my friends absolutely love was not going to be the book for me. Thankfully, the moment passed.

 

I ended up really enjoying this story. Reg and Jeremy meet by accident one night when Jeremy goes into the bar where Reg works to get a drink and to escape his crazy 'superstar' life because he's 'The Jeremy Jameson' and sometimes he just needs to disappear for a bit to be a person just a normal regular person and not 'a superstar rockstar'. What starts out being just friendly chatter between two guys in a bar ends up being a life changing conversation for both of them.

 

Jeremy's ironically had a bit of a sheltered life. He's been wrapped up in his music practically since before he could speak. It's been Jeremy and his music the rest is just background and he's not really interested. Reg is just an ordinary guy working in a bar trying to save a bit of cash so he can travel and see the world...have some fun. But when closing time comes Reg takes Jeremy home so he can sleep it off because he's maybe had one too many. They talk Jeremy makes Reg an offer (no, not that kind of offer...dirty minds...ok, that offer might come later).

 

Jeremy wants a 'pretend' boyfriend to travel with him keep him company maybe have a bit of fun together on his downtime. Reg wants to travel...how could he possibly refuse? Well, he's a sane intelligent man of course he's not going to refuse and this is how Reg and Jeremy came to be.

 

This book was low angst, humorous and I adored Reg and Jeremy. I have to honestly admit at times Reg was definitely not my cup of tea. I found him to be too controlling, too take charge and ironically that was exactly what Jeremy needed. He desperately needed someone to take care of the background clutter so that he could focus on doing what he did best and Reg liked doing that because it gave Jeremy some breathing space, helped him to relax so for these two it was good it worked.

 

My moment came when the relationship progressed from 'friends to lovers'. There was a definite imbalance in the relationship in regards to sexual preference. Reg was gay he knew he was gay and he had experience as a gay man. Jeremy was straight because everyone told him he was. His managers/publicist, his 'people', kept fixing him up with women so he must be straight, right? He'd never been interested enough to question this because he was all about the music. Being with Reg made him question this. Reg realized this little problem very early on in their relationship and while he wanted Jeremy and make no mistake about it, Reg wanted Jeremy! He also wanted to be a friend to Jeremy to allow him to figure things out. It could be argued that Jeremy only fell in love with Reg because he needed him but that leaves the bigger question open of why does any person fall in love with the person they fall in love with? We all have needs be they physical, emotional or intellectual and truthfully if the person we live with, love and are possibly married to doesn't fill those needs, doesn't make you happy, as Reg did for Jeremy, than I guess the next question is 'Why did you fall in love with them? or maybe it's 'are you sure you love them?'

 

I loved how this book reflected a very personal belief for me and that is that 'I don't love someone in spite of their faults or imperfections' I love that person because of them. 'Perfect Imperfections' for me ended up begin imperfectly perfect.
