I have to say that I enjoyed Perfect Love even more than book 1. I found it to be written better and it was more engaging. I loved the fact that it picks up right where book 1 ended and we the reader are pulled into the harshness that is Quinn and Cash's relationship. A major bomb about Cash's past has just been dropped on Quinn while she is waiting to board the plane for Boston. Now away at school, Quinn throws herself into her studies. She is trying to gain some sort of control over her life but finds it a constant battle. Cash is never far from her thoughts and she still loves him just as much, but she just doesn't know that she will ever be able to forgive him for the lies and deception that he caused.
Cash has just watched the one girl that he really loves and cares about walk away and move across the country and more than anything he wants to fight for a chance to fix the mistakes of his past so that maybe he has a chance to make things right with Quinn. Dealing with his past and all the hurt he has caused proves to be a struggle and he wants more than anything to find a way to fix what they once had. Hearts have been broken and they both are trying to pick up the pieces that are left and move forward, but when their paths cross once again. will they both be strong enough to beat the temptation that made that their past relationship so hot and exciting or will they both have a change of heart and find them taking a second chance at happiness?
Go and grab Perfect Love and continue the journey that is Cash and Quinn's story. You will be taken on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The push and pull and the fight for the control that they both so desperately want in their lives is almost heartbreaking at times. I loved this story and I am so glad I took the time to read the work of a new to me author.

Perfect Sense (Perfect, #1) by Amanda Cowen
Laura's rating: 4 of 5 iScream Cones
Anyone who knows me in the book world or those following my reviews knows that I am a sucker for sports romance. But, there is just something about a sexy as sin, hotter than hell, hockey player. When I see a storyline that centers around a hockey player it's like a flashing light goes off in my brain. Buy me, read me, devour me...lol So, when I was given the opportunity to read and review Perfect Sense for the upcoming blog tour and release of book 2 (Perfect Love), I jumped all over it.
This is the first book that I have read by Amanda Cowen and I must say I was so glad that I had the next book in the series to start right after it. I damn near threw my kindle across the room. What an ending. I guess I should state that this book had me hooked from the first few chapters. Quinn Ashby has just graduated for Penn and is waiting to see if she has been accepted into Harvard to obtain her MBA, when she accepts a position with the Bexley Bruisers in the marketing and promotions department. Quinn has spent the past several years away from her father and younger sister. Now she has come home to hopefully pick up the pieces of her life and move forward. Well, that all seems to change when she meets one of the hottest stars in the league and Bruisers shortstopper Cash Brookes.
Cash knows he has life literally by the balls. He is an amazing hockey star and a dirty womanizer to boot. I have a thing for dirty talking hockey players and Cash delivers. His character is strong and determined to be the best that he can on the ice. When it comes to women he likes to play with the puck-bunnies, that is until he sees Quinn and his world is tilted off its axis.
The chemistry between these two is crazy hot, there is plenty of laugh out loud moments and it is filled with a roller coaster ride of emotions. And the ending with have you going crazy like I said before I was so glad I had book 2 waiting for me to start, otherwise, I might have really thrown my kindle. So, glab a comfortable spot and part your butt for a few hours and begin the journey that is Cash and Quinn's story.
