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…
What ensues is a story of friendship, trust and acceptance...the emotions are in the forefront along with the humor. The ‘feels' in this story are subtle but heartfelt nonetheless. Jeremy and Reg's connection is instant but through honest dialogue, funny banter and flirtatious and candid interactions, Cardeno deepens it. Bringing forth numerous ‘awww' moments, laughs and sighs. I loved Jeremy and Reg's easy camaraderie. It was great to see how it jumped off the page. They were friends first, lovers later and their journey was a treat to experience.
Sigh. This was so yummy and romantic and sexy, I just loved it. Cardeno C has created such a wonderful friends to lovers story here in Perfect Imperfections. I loved these guys together from the very beginning. They are such a perfect match for one another...Almost the whole book focuses on the two men developing their friendship and ultimately their romantic relationship within the very close confines of their travel together. This works so well with the story as the reader is just drawn right in to the intimacy these men have created. I could just feel the bond between them and loved watching these men interact....So this was another big hit from Cardeno C for me. I absolutely adored Reg and Jeremy completely. They are such a wonderful couple together and meet each other's needs so perfectly. I really loved watching both their comfortable friendship and their romantic relationship grow over the course of the book. Wonderful story and highly recommended.
There’s exactly the right mix of romance, sex, and angst. I will never hesitate to recommend his/her books
The build up to their first hot sex scene together was so intense and emotional. I liked the way we saw time pass by so the strengthening of their relationship made sense. Throw in a little mystery about somebody leaking information to the press, and I had a story that I couldn't put down.
