Almost Perfect had me Almost Crying throughout the whole book! This was such an emotional roller coaster for me! It made laugh, get angry, get sad…it literally had me on the verge of tears the whole time…until the end, when I finally cried happy tears.
To keep this review from getting too personal let’s just say that I’m a mom and that may have led to this book resonating with me on so many levels. I agree that Liz should’ve tried harder to bring Ethan and Tyler together, but it was hard for me to get angry with her because I sympathized with her so much. I thought she was a GREAT mom to Tyler and I really loved her character.
Ethan, you idiot. This was a constant thought while I read this book. I loved him and thought he was sexy and funny, but he just couldn’t get it right! It was so hard to remain angry with him, though, because he never really realized just how much of an idiot he was being until the end. I thought that last (unintended) grand gesture was incredibly overdue, but despite that, I LOVED it.
The town and its residents completely won me over once again. The Fool’s Gold books are great if you’re looking to get into a romantic Romance series with just the perfect amount of steaminess.
