Wow a weeks gone by again and here i am slacking again. It's been a really crazy busy week but i finished it off by reading Susan Mallery's new release, Almost Perfect. This is the 2nd book in the fools Gold series. The first i reviewed here was called Chasing Perfect. In Almost Perfect Liz Sutton is a New York Best selling author. She grew up in Fools Gold but didn't have a easy time of it and fled at 18 when the Ethan the boy she thought loved her denied knowing her to his friends. Ethan Hendrix you met in Chasing Perfect. He was supposed to have a career racing bikes like his best friend Josh Golden but a accident ruined that chance and then his fathers death thrust him into being responsible for his fathers company and head of his family. Liz found out a few weeks after she left she was pregnant with Ethan's baby but when she came back he finds him otherwise occupied so she left again to have and raise their baby on her own. She tries one other time 6 years later but someone intervenes and Ethan doesn't know about the baby still and Liz is deeply hurt by his rejection of both her and their son. Before you know it 11 years go and she gets a email from 2 nieces she didn't even know she had. They are alone and in trouble and she has to go back to Fools gold to help them. Except Ethan still lives there. Here is a little blurb from Almost Perfect.
HQN -- Book 2 Fools Gold series
Back in high school, Liz Sutton was the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Then she'd stolen the heart of the most popular boy in town, and their secret romance helped her through the worst of times. Until Ethan Hendrix betrayed her and everything they'd ever meant to each other. Devastated and pregnant, Liz left Fool's Gold, California—forever, she thought….
Now Liz must return to town and face the man who doesn't know of their son's existence. And this time she won't have the option of making a quick getaway. Ethan and Liz can't deny their passionate attraction, even after all these years. But will their desire be enough to spark a second chance at love?
Ok honestly i kept going back and forth on whether i liked this book or not. lol Ethan is a real ass if you ask me and i wanted to smack him several times. He certainly had to have been immature at 18 and seems it took him a while to grow up. Liz is just awesome not only does she deal with being pregnant and raising a baby on her own but then she claims her 2 nieces without hesitation. The blows keep coming at her but she stands up and does what she has to do. Ethan finally gets a clue at the end but i really wanted to whack him a good one way before then. You can read the first and 2nd chapter by going to Susan mallery's website by clicking HERE. You can read about the first book Chasing Perfect. Her next release is this series is called Finding Perfect which features Raoul who first appeared in Bakery sisters series Sweet Spot as a teenager.
I give Almost Perfect 4 Modokker Book Pick stars. Can't wait for Raoul's book in September. You have plenty of time to pick up the Bakery Sisters series to find out about Raoul's back story.
