The Perfectly Imperfect Match!!!
The Perfectly Imperfect Match (Suttonville Sentinels) - Kendra C. Highley

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

This book comes out july 10th.

 

This book is the 3rd book in the Suttonville Sentinels series but can be totally read as a stand alone. I haven't read the first two books but I'm planning to read them, cause it's my mission to read all of Kendra C. Highley YA contemporary books.

 

This marks my 4th book, I read by the author and let me just say, I LOVE her writing, her stories and all the different characters.

 

Summary: Pitcher Dylan Dennings has his future all mapped out: make the minors straight out of high school, work his way up the farm system, and get called up to the majors by the time he’s twenty-three. The Plan has been his sole focus for years, and if making his dreams come true means instituting a strict “no girls” policy, so be it.

Lucy Foster, needlepoint ninja, big sister to an aspiring pitcher, and chicken advocate, likes a little mayhem. So what if she gets lost taking her brother to baseball camp…at her own high school? The pitching coach, some hotshot high school player, obviously thinks she’s a hot mess. Too bad he’s cute, because he’s so not her type.

Problem is, they keep running into each other, and every interaction sparks hotter than the last. But with Dylan’s future on the line, he has to decide whether some rules are made to be broken…

Disclaimer: This book contains a crazy night of moonlit skinny-dipping, a combustible crush, and kisses swoony enough to unwind even the most Type A athlete.

 

I got into this story super fast, the reading was amazing (as always), I feel in love with the two main characters really fast, and the side characters were amazing as well.

 

Lucy and Dylan are amazing main characters. They have their own story, they have their own personalities and have their own problems and flaws. And because they are so different from each other, whenever they meet, the air around them just explodes because of all the tension. WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR???

 

No, but seriously, I loved them. I'm not really into baseball (or lets just say that I have no clue when it comes to the sport) but I really loved Dylan's POV and I really loved the parts with the sports camp for the little kids. CUTE!!! I also loved Lucy and her sewing. I just love creative things like that (I'm a knitter myself, well, I haven't knit anything this year, cause books. BOOKS!!!).

 

I loved the side characters like Dylan's friends Tristan and Alyssa, they are the main characters in the book before this one. I really wanna read their story. I also loved Lucy's friend Serena and her family, the chickens. That was such an wonderful side storyline. SAVE THE CHICKENS!!!
And of course Otis, Lucy's little brother and overall Lucy's family. So many friendship and family feels. Also Otis was just the cutest when he was overprotective of his big sister. Awwww.

(Can I also just say that I loved that their wasn't one character that tried to ruin things for anyone else!!!)

 

The relationship between Lucy and Dylan was wonderful to read about. Things moved pretty fast but I worked and I was so happy that at one point they just stopped, took a step back and got to really know each other. Of course there were some hurdles along the way but they got through it.

 

And I loved the end of the story. Again, so many family feels!!!

 

So, yeah. Long story short, I highly recommend this story for everyone who is looking for a fun and fast read.

Imperfect (Terran Times, #17) by Viola Grace Review
Imperfect - Viola Grace

llora has been through a lot and is looking forward to a solitary retirement. All she needs to do is to get past the selection process in the Lorahan seralgio for three more days and she is home free.

The Prefect of Lorahan wants Illora and her successful efforts to dodge the selection process has turned him ashen with fury and parts of him blue. He concocts a plan to trap her with her own honesty and the race is on to make her his before the Alliance comes to retrieve her. He must fight his urge to be forthright and deliberately manipulate her into the position as his wife.

Let's hope they both survive the process.

 

 

Review

This science fiction romance short story has a unique courtship. The heroine's reasons for resisting are moving and hero's steadfast pursuit is compelling.

 

Good stuff.

Addiction, danger, patience, and faith pulled me in
Addicted to the Duke: An Imperfect Lords Novel - Bronwen Evans

A terrible past haunts Alex and he must face his demons when he rescues Hestia. She knows her heart belongs to Alex, but it takes a lot of faith, patience, and strength to help him find his way to his own heart. Alex is a very tortured soul, physically and emotionally, and I wanted to help him see the light. Hestia is young and honest, but learns and accepts the bad in the world, and I applauded her strength. I highly recommend this story and give a mild warning about the dark aspects of this story. It kept me reading whenever I could. I enjoy Ms. Evans stories, and look forward to more in this series.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Age doesn't always bring wisdom with it...
Imperfect Harmony - Jay Northcote

"Imperfect Harmony" is a wonderful second chance story about to men who for all intents and purposes on paper shouldn't work but they do...sometimes opposites do attract. 

 

John is 19 years older than Rhys. He's already lost too much and keeps the world at a distance trying to keep the hurt away. But the world has a way of only letting a person have so much distance and when John's neighbor finally lures him into choir practice one day the world presents him with Rhys, he's young, he's got blue hair and tattoos and he can sing...like an angel. Sometimes the world fights dirty...music is John's weakness and little by little as he finds himself returning to choir practice with his neighbor he begins to realize how much he's missed having music in his life. 

 

It's their shared love of music that slowly draws these two men together. But it's the growing attraction that keeps them both wanting more than just choir practice time with each other. This could have been an over the top angst fest but instead it was sweet story about two men each dealing with their own grief while helping the other through theirs. 

 

The interaction between these two men was good, it was fun and sexy with serious moments and glimpses into their past and made even better with the addition of seeing John and Rhys interact with the other people in their lives as well...John with his neighbor, co-workers and other choir members and Rhys with his family, members in his choir group and the seniors at the retirement home where he goes every week to lead the residents in a sing-along. An event that he ultimately convinces John to join him in. 

 

It's all these little interactions that come together to create a picture of two men who are each kind and caring in their own ways, giving of themselves to the people around them and freely sharing kindness and making lives a little brighter but never realizing that they deserve to be happy too.  

 

Sometimes the road back from grieving can seem like it's all uphill until the right person takes your hand and starts to walk with you. 

 

I love a good second-chance story and "Imperfect Harmony" was a wonderful second chance story and it was only further enhanced in the audio book through the excellent narration provided by Mark Steadman. The 'basics list' was easily checked off and the voices fit readily into my perceptions of how these characters would sound adding a further dimension to the story and allowing me to enjoy things all the more. 

 

Whether it's an e-book or an audio book a good story is a good story and this good story is worth enjoying no matter what format you choose.
