 If you take away the hot sex scenes and the explosive chemistry, you have a romance that is rocksteady and perfectly balanced. ~ Under the Covers

Readers first met Woods in the Too Far series by Abbi Glines. Now, Woods Kerrington has his own white hot series called Perfection, which will follow Woods and Della’s journey to falling in love. Going into this book, I already knew Woods and was half in love with him already. So Glines’ next challenge was to introduce a heroine who could stand up to Woods and balance him well.

I thought she did a fantastic job with Della Sloane, an intuitive and slightly innocent girl who needed to escape her dark past and find herself. Woods and Della first meet at a gas station which leads to a smoking hot one night stand that leaves a lasting impression on both of them. Years later, a difficult circumstance brings them back together and this is when the story takes off.

Glines takes a different approach to this book. It’s a little more cruder in tone, bordering on the erotic romance side. While I have no complaints about the intensity and hotness of the crude words Woods uses, I also felt that sometimes it wasn’t that necessary for a particular scene, causing it to feel overdone in places.

We get a deeper look into Woods’ life and the constant pressure his father puts on his shoulders. With an impeding arranged marriage planned out for him, Woods is grasping desperately at anything to help him out of the loveless, sparkles romance. Meeting Della again shows him that he wants something more for himself.

Della’s backstory is a tragic one and that’s what I loved most about this book. If you take away the hot sex scenes and the explosive chemistry, you have a romance that is rocksteady and perfectly balanced. Della is the main reason for that. She has this playfulness about her that makes her charming and fun, but certain things cause her to remember her past and suddenly her PTSD kicks in. It just makes the romance feel more real.

There is a cliffhanger ending but it’s one that I like. It definitely kept me on edge and I’m looking forward to learning about what happens next in SIMPLE PERFECTION!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
