Synopsis: Best-selling romance writer, Darcy Butler, is holding out for perfection in the form of her own carefully-crafted heroes. Once blissfully engaged to be married, Darcy’s post-traumatic commitment phobia is depriving her of the very thing she wants most: her very own happily-ever-after. Now, here she is just six months shy of her thirtieth birthday, and not a Prince Charming in sight.
Successful lawyer, Josh Ryan, is the boy-next-door with a soft spot for the less fortunate, and Darcy’s best friend without benefits. Darcy often comes to him lamenting her love-life, or the lack thereof, whereupon Josh patiently doles out his sage advice. Problem is Josh is in love with Darcy.
But when Darcy finds herself looking into the handsome face of the man who graces the cover of her soon-to-be-released novel, she’s convinced her dreams of perfection have come true. Or have they?
Review: DREAMS OF PERFECTION is a romance novel which, I feel, will be very popular. I prefer romances, like this one, where the characters aren't perfect. Darcy Butler is a romance writer who doesn’t have a great love life. Everyone she dates turns out to be a frog instead of Prince Charming. Thankfully she has her best friend, Josh Ryan, who she can always count on. What Darcy doesn’t realize is that Josh has been in love with her for a very long time. When Darcy meets a man who matches the guy she’s written about in her latest draft novel, down to his name, she knows he’s perfect. However, is getting everything in a man she thinks she’s ever wanted really what Darcy wants? DREAMS OF PERFECTION is a funny, sweet, and light romance novel. I loved Josh; his grounded and generous nature was a perfect complement to Darcy’s airy and head-in-the-clouds personality. I liked Darcy, but I wish she’d been a little more realistic about life and love. DREAMS OF PERFECTION will have readers breaking out the tissues!
