A Perfect Dilemma

A Perfect Secret Series, #3
New Adult Contemporary Romance and Mystery
Released September 2014
The one secret she can't stand to keep is the one she can't afford to tell.

The perfect little rich girl, River Pearl Sutton has always done what her family expected of her. She’d become the perfect little beauty queen, the perfect child model and now her global success locks her into a life she never really chose.
Coming home for the summer to prepare for the Founder’s Day Festival, a celebration of her lauded ancestor, she is tasked by her father to write a speech to be delivered at the end of the party.
Returning to Hope Parish brings her back into close proximity with sweet-talking, skirt-chasing Braxton Outlaw, the boy who always seemed immune to her charms in high school. But now he looks at her with those challenging blue eyes, both intimidating and seductive at the same time. Using research of her family lineage and his as way to get close to this bad boy, they fall into a hot, torrid affair.
She stumbles across a terrible secret that could bring to ruin not only her reputation, but the reputation and standing of her family. But when her infatuation with Brax grows into something that she can’t live without, she must decide what to do. Keep the secret and lose Brax or destroy her family and lose them. 
It’s an awful, heartrending perfect dilemma.

So I've been following along with this great series. For those of you who are just coming across this then read my previous reviews to see if this series is right for you. Trust me this is one of those series you'll want to put on your TBR list. In this book is the perfect mix of everything chemestry, suspence and the steaminess. I loved the characters and the storyline was great. One thing about this book and the series is that each of them are stand alone so you can jump right in any order though I do recommend reading them in order you'll enjoy the characters more that way. This is one book that once you start you wont be able to put back down. Highly Recommend!

A Perfect Mistake

A Perfect Secret, Book #2
How can they have a future when their past is based on a lie?
The perfect preacher’s daughter, Verity Fairchild, has something that only she and God know about and she wants to keep it that way. Her mistake was easy to keep secret when she was out of town, but now that she’s come back to Hope Parish for the summer, she comes face-to-face with the guy responsible for it all. Boone Outlaw nearly ruined everything for her and despite the fact that he’s now working at her father’s church, she’s determined to stay as far away from him as possible.
Boone Outlaw doesn’t understand Verity’s anger towards him. He barely knows her. In high school she was Holy Mary Verity and she was off limits – except in his dreams where Verity seems way too real. Most of the time he was wasted in high school, not the type of boy Verity would ever look at twice, but he can’t shake the feeling that something might have happened between them. He’s going to break his own rules to get the answers he needs straight from Verity.
What will Verity do when she finds something in Boone that she never knew existed and her perfect mistake is the only thing that could stand between them and their happiness? Will she sacrifice Boone to keep her secret?

My Thoughts:

Everyone from Verity's town thought she was the perfect preachers daughter and never questioned her year at Kenya. Verity was hiding a dark secret that she couldn't let anyone know. One reckless and confusing night changed her life forever. Now shes back in down and unfortunately had an encounter by the one person she didn't want to see again : Boone Outlaw. Little did she expect was to fall for him which makes it even harder for her when shes going to have to tell Boone her secret.

I really enjoyed this book. Fast paced and interesting. A couple of twists that kept me guessing of what was going to happen. I loved the connection between Verity and Boone. I loved that there was two point of views which helped me understand and connect to the characters. This book was well written and I just loved it. I highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book. Just so you  know that the books from the A Perfect Secrets trilogy are standalone. So you can read the books in different order it wouldn't matter.

A Perfect Mess

A Perfect Secret, Book #1

I know what you did last summer.
Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.
Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.
Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.
Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.
As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

My Thoughts:

For nine months Aubree had avoided her home town. After she received a call from her home town sheriff dept and finds out her loving aunt is in a coma Aubree comes back. For nine months she was trying to escape her past and a guy she bad boy Booker. Now shes back in town and had to deal with painful secrets, lies, Booker and dealing with fact that someone is sending her cryptic messages.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved how mysterious this book was. When the first string of secrets came out I couldn't help but think it wasn't that big of a deal, and was kind of predictable but I still found myself enjoying it anyways. The secrets that were slowly coming to light were interesting. I want to say more on it but I don't want to ruin the book. I loved the connection between Aubrey and Booker. Oh and what in the world kind of name is Booker or Boone? I've never heard of characters with such strange names. I thought this book was well-written. Overall I enjoyed this book and think you contemporary romance fans would enjoy this book! 4 of 5 stars.
