Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle of nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can’t say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.

Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there’s nothing pretend about their relationship.

Review of book:

What can I say?  I've had my Cardeno C cherry popped in a major way with Perfect Imperfections, and I'll never look back!  This author came highly recommended to me, and even still, I was completely unprepared for how much I enjoyed this book.  The plot was well crafted and paced - just the right amount of detail to hook me - and characters that I absolutely adored.  Jeremy Jameson's life played out in front of millions, and sadly he seemed to be the loneliest guy on the planet. Tending bar ensured that Reggie Moore was well accustomed to being a sympathetic ear to his patrons, but his instant connection with Jeremy parlays into an adventure of epic proportions.

Simply put, Jeremy is ying to Reg's yang.  When the rock star goes into diva mode, Reg's calm, quiet, down to earth personality smooths out even the most ruffled of feathers. I truly enjoyed watching these two dance around each other so much that even when they finally gave in to the sexual tension, the scene was still profoundly  romantic. Each fed a need in the other, and it thrilled me that no matter how stressful circumstances got, they made the effort to communicate and deepen their relationship.

This book really revolved primarily around the developing romance between these two characters, so if you're a fan of a good character driven piece, I'd highly recommend Perfect Imperfections by Cardeno C - it's a fabulous piece that sucks you right in from the first word to the last!
