SIMPLE PERFECTION is a delightful read that is perfect for a refresher – it’s light but still potent. ~ Under the Covers

In the concluding installment to the Perfection series, Glines returns to Rosemary Beach with Della and the dirty talking, Woods. Readers who enjoy a quick and easy read will find this book especially appealing, though I would say it’s better to read this series in order. It’s a duology so it shouldn’t be too difficult to catch up.

Della’s past is explored more in this novel. It’s dark and saddening which further makes me admire her character. If you’ve read the previous book in the series, then you’re familiar with Woods’ father. Events transpire and it is the start of a nosedive fall for the characters. The last 20% of the book was a serious eyeopener. Glines takes no prisoners here and plunges deeper and darker before. I wasn’t expecting that, but I will say that it made the book worthwhile to read. I am looking forward to what Glines has in store next, especially for Grant’s character.

In terms of the romance, Della and Woods have it good. It’s nice to see a man who is so unabashed about his love for his girl. It just makes Woods that much more appealing. As you can expect, there are a ton of steamy scenes interspersed in this novel, making it possibly one of the hotter ones she has ever written. Though Della and Woods are madly in love, it doesn’t mean that everything is going on well. In fact, Woods crazy ex-fiancé is burr in everyone’s side. She is a constant threat to their love and this will test them like never before.

SIMPLE PERFECTION is a delightful read that is perfect for a refresher – it’s light but still potent. Though dark at times, I think Glines nicely balances the good and the bad, making for an easy read.

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!

Nicely written review! I also love how sweet Woods is to Della. They also have a hot dynamic. Abbi Glines is a gem in the NA genre, IMO.
