Bree had me hooked from the beginning, all the way to the end! This book is Perry and Stephen's story. It happens 6 years prior to Legal. It can be read as a standalone or as part of the Legal Series.
Perry is trying to get life together. She finally found a job that is she is extremely great at. She has a bunch of wonderful friends and well a "boyfriend", Dre. Their relationship is always on again off again, she is unable to really make the attempt to be in it. And the same goes for him. Perry has absolutely no filter, and says the craziest, sometimes most hilarious things.
Stephen is a in charge of the developing department of FiTech. He comes off like a player (Perry's perspective), but in all actuality he's a genuinely sweet guy. He is know for being compared to "Thor". Which means he's perfect and has an incredible body.
Perry and her best friend, Christa, are out celebrating St. Patrick's Day, when a handsome stranger, Stephen tells her Dre is a loser. When they are leaving, he puts a four leaf clover necklace around Perry's neck. Well little did she know, this man would factor more into her life than she thought. Her relationship with Dre was hitting a stalemate, he would say things but not come through with them. Perry didn't seem to really be bothered by it. At work one day, the man in charge of her department had a family emergency and in walks "Thor". She was speechless! As the story builds, they start to form a friendship, putting all Perry's sayings behind them. After discovering Dre in a pretty bad, no turning back situation, Perry turns to Stephen. But he appears to be unavailable. At work, her co-workers and Stephen all notice that Perry isn't herself. Stephen sets out to fix it and Perry goes, because what else has she got to lose. Stephen proves to her that she can really rely on him and he learns a lot more about her. He remembers everything she says! (Swoon)
Can they open up to each other and admit feeling a for one another? Does Perry walk away because it's a committed relationship? Will Stephen be the person Perry's been looking for?
Bree told a funny and romantic story of Perry and Stephen. I loved that Perry got her story! I can't wait to see what Bree has in store for us next. Excellent book that I highly recommend, along with Legal and Lyrical!
Coming August 14th!
