Accountant slash bartender Reg will show rock star Jeremy how to have fun...and possibly fall in love.
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.
With the worn-to-hell baseball cap pulled low over his face, Jeremy Jameson walked into the bar. At least he assumed it was a bar, based on the lopsided sign out front that simply said "Bar" in peeling red paint and the stench of beer and cigarette smoke that permeated the air. The interior space wasn't any cleaner or hipper than the parking lot.
Jeremy tried to remember the last time he had been in a club or bar or restaurant that wasn't sleek with carefully positioned lighting and well-maintained fixtures. Never. The answer to that question was never. Even musicians who started on the bottom and worked their way up probably wouldn't have come to a dive like this; it was too small, too out of the way, and it didn't have a stage or any room to set up equipment.
Internally lecturing himself for thinking about work…
There are some very funny moments in this book...fleshlights...and the way that Reg just keeps pushing and waiting for that ah-ha moment cracked me up. There are also some very sensual moments and as always with this author they are beautifully written.....This is a perfect lazy day read when you want something that will interest you but not overwhelm you with angst.
This really is a heart warming story. Both characters are likeable but in such different ways....It was lovely to see their relationship grow and to watch in particular Jeremy's realisation that his past failures with women may actually be down to the fact that he is in fact gay. He is needy and craves love and attention, luckily he has found Reg who is someone that is a natural giver (please ladies/men - I don't mean it like that) and enjoys looking after Jeremy and keeping him safe, secure and grounded. If you want to read a story of self discovery, friendship, love and loyalty as well as some hot M/M scenes; Perfect imperfections is the perfect (excuse the pun!) easy read :)
So let us just say that once again, Cardeno C. managed to surprise me with this Slow-Burning-Romantic-Comedy-With-A-Touch-Of-Erotica-That-Made-Me-Blush! ... As the two men's lives, developing friendship and dependence on each other unfold through the read, the more I saw that they were just two men who wanted to live a little. When they started falling in love with each other in the course of several months, then things got a little sexier ... I never thought that these two imperfect men could be so Perfect together and with each other. It was easy to fall in love with them.....so very, very easy. I can't seem to let these two go....
The resulting relationship is part friendship, part hottie hot hot sex personified. This gay for you book will get you hooked
