RATING: 4.25 WOODS MOMENTS!!

Blurb: Goodreads

Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Simple Perfection continues the relationship ups and downs of Della and Woods.

Woods is a fave of mine and he did not disappoint.

I thought Della may have been dealt the weak character card a bit too much in this installment. I would have liked her reasonings for leaving Woods to have been stronger. I loved seeing her get a HEA of another type.

I did love watching Woods get all fierce about her leaving. He did not give up and that is what I love about Woods he became quite the distance stalker.

A very heart shattering moment twisted me all up inside. It was sad but it also felt like a quick game changer move. I am still not sure how I feel about this. Again if it was written a bit different I may accept it more. But this heart breaker, gut wrencher felt too spontaneous, even though it is meant to. I am not sure if I am explaining myself well here. I think, I felt that the lead up needed to be stronger. More time possibly spent on it. I know we aren’t meant to see it coming, but the validation of it happening I felt needed to be stronger.

Total. Heart. Crusher.

Rush and Blaire add the lighter side to this installment with little Nate. Watching Rush rock a diaper bag, is sure to put a smile on your face. Being the man he is, it does not faze him, one bit.

Rush is always evolving and that is what I like about his character. He has grown the most before our eyes.

Grant is giving us a lead up to the shenanigans that will no doubt be going on in Take A Chance with the relationship villainess, Nan.

Tripp, trips his way into this installment in a much meatier role. I do like the sound of him, but at the same time I got quite a little shocker from this installment.

Nice one.

There’s never a dull moment in Rosemary Beach. The smexi times are ALWAYS hot and delicious and the tough times are filled with angst and drama.

And then there are the Nan, times.


“She’s all kinds of fucked up and mean.”
