Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.

Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

This book is not suitable for those under 18 years of age because it contains one or more of the following: language, mature content/scenes, references to drugs or alcohol.

My Thoughts
Wow! This audiobook was fantastic! I loved every minute of listening to this book. The narrators filled the roles well and I felt as if I was truly among Rome and Cora’s intense roller coaster ride!

The narrators truly brought Cora and Rome to life. I felt Rome’s heartache, his tortured soul, as if it was my own. I felt Cora’s easy loving spirit like it was mine. The intensity in which their story was told was fantastic! I loved it!

This book was beautiful the first time I read it in paperback. It’s even more emotionally moving in audio form! Definitely another 5 star listen for me and I can’t wait to listen to Nash’s story next!
