2* 'I deserve a BIG medal for making it through this one' Stars.

First, let me get this off my chest: The heroine, Freya, was SO. DAMN. ANNOYING!

PERFECT FOR YOU is a light and way-too-f'n-silly romantic contemporary where the heroine has a deep aversion to her hot, sexy, rich, nice, generous and damn-near-perfect neighbor Greg, who just so happens to be a lawyer. Because (according to Freya) all lawyers are bottom feeders with the single goal of hurting people. Makes sense right? No? Uh, not to...more

This was a cute read.

Was it super predıctable?
Yes ıt was.
Did it make me giggle?
Yes it did.
Was the "sumthin sumthin" scenes hot?
Yes. Yes they were.

Basically long story short.

Greg wants Freya.
Freya hates Greg cos hes a lawyer. (long story)
Gregs hot.
Freyas hot.

Freya places an ad on Craigslist for some hot sex to get her Muse back.
Surprise surprise Greg thinks he can fill the spot.
Freyas sister sabotages all Freyas date cos she likes Greg.

I tried to think of several ways to start this review, but I think going for simple and direct-to-the-point is best. But to sum up my thoughts: If I wasn't annoyed, I was bored. Perfect for You could not be any more not perfect for me.

Reasons why I intensely disliked Perfect for You:

1.) Freya has lost her muse, so in a flash of inspiration, she decides to post an ad that she is a lonely woman in need of a man. (Unfortunately, she sucks, so her best friend writes it for her instead).

Her neighbor,...more

I will admit that my opinion of this book is based on a very heavy pet peeve. If the setup to a story plot feels terribly artificial, I won't like it. Not matter how good everything else is. I just can't stand fake scenarios, mostly the ones that include artificial human reactions.

Here it is:

The heroine has lost her creativity and thinks that a steamy affair will get her "creative juices flowing". Okay. That's ridiculous enough already. Now the followup. She decides to find this steamy romance...more

This is another freebie that I got on Amazon. It was okay.

Okay, it was a bit more than okay but a bit less than great. It was funny and sweet and not bad for a free book.

Good thing I didn't expect much from this, no disappointments. I kind of expected it to be an okay-read at the least and it turned out to be that.
The story was "yeah, sure" and the romance between the two main characters looked like it was already happening long before this book happened. Yep, with this book alone, their sweet,...more
Tori
This book was not bad. Not good, either, but all in all not bad. There were a few 'OMG you have got to be kidding me' moments, like a support character whose attraction was his Harry Potter glasses and the fact that he smelled like onions (I don't know about you guys, but usually when I say someone smells like onions, it's typically in reference to the fact that they need deodorant!) There was also a lot of potential, I enjoyed the characters, the banter was pretty good, and the story wasn't bad...more

S-S-S-S-Steamy!
"PERFECT FOR YOU" ... is the second Kate Perry book I have read this month; except that there is much more sensuality in this one, she has not changed her writing style from the first book I read. If you are wanting read about spicy sexual activity, in locations you may have never dreamed of, with very little drama - then this is the book for you.

This saga is based on Freya's need to regain her creativity for an ad campaign at work. The muse she turned to in order to solve this p...more

The thing I love about Kate Perry is her books are simple. Now, normally that would sound like a bad thing but don't get me wrong, I mean that in the best way possible. She does an excellent job of creating a world that's light and easy. There's always good chemistry and you always get your happy ending. I love reading books by Ms. Perry when I just need a little pick me up, and that's what her books do.

Freya is a web designer in San Francisco who seems to be having a bit of designers block. Whe...more

I enjoyed this book, loved the characters, a lovely romance story for us hopeless romantics.

Meh. Cute and sweetish, typical romance. Not bad, just nothing spectacular.
Chris Bails
Wow, what a great book. Loved the story and loved the characters.
This is the story of Freya, a web designer. She has lost her muse and is stuggling with a new web design at work. Her boss tells her to get it together and design an awesome add or she is fired. She decides to put an ad on Craigslist to look for someone to be her Muse. Freya's problem with Greg is that she hates lawyers.
Greg is a lawyer and her neighbor and he has a crush on Freya. He has been trying to find ways to get together w...more

Cute freebie about a web designer who's lost her mojo... and she desperately needs it back to finish the designs for a big-time online adult store. It's not your run-of-the-mill porn shop; Freya (yes, named after the Norse love goddess) needs to get her own sexy love goddess back to finish the campaign. She's only got 4 weeks. This client could make-or-break her little San Francisco boutique web design company.

Everyone knows that her upstairs neighbor, Greg Cavanaugh, is the right one...more

Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

This is my first time reading Kate Perry and I already know it won’t be the last. In fact, before I started my review on Perfect for You, I went to Amazon and downloaded the next two in the series. This was a fun and sexy story filled with some pretty interesting people.

Freya Goodwin is a graphic artist who has lost her muse. She’s decided she needs to find someone who makes her feel sexy and help her get her muse back. She’s hoping a personal add on Crai...more

The story line was a bit blah. Nothing was detailed, like, you don't fully grasp what happened.

Its about this web designer, Freya, who lost her muse. So, she puts up an ad on craigslist to find herself a man (to date? to sleep with? for company?) in order to get her muse back for a big project. Yeah I know what your thinking.. WHO does that? I mean, if that doesn't scream out S-L-E-E-Z-Y, i don't know what does.

She also supports her younger sister through college. In the beginning, she appears...more

While looking through the list of books to read, I had passed by this novel a couple of times. At the time, the title just seemed a bit too cheesy for me; even now I still think so. However, based on the reviews, I decided to go for it. Someone has mentioned "light" and easy to read... just what I was looking for. But I think that what I really loved about it was the humor; I had quite a difficult time masking my laughter while reading this when the rest of the house was asleep.

The heroine poss...more

Okay, I know a lot of people are somewhat all over the place with their ratings on this book. It appeared to be that it was one of two options (for most readers): you either loved this book or you hated it with a great passion to want to burn it to hell and back.

I admit, I liked this book. It was really sweet. Greg was determined but he wasn't like most books I've read where there is a complete alpha male and he isn't to be defied or questioned at any one given point in the book. In fact, he was...more
Sara
Oh my God! Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! I adored it! It was fun and incredibly hot and kind of sweet! It made me smile and chuckle. It made me hot, my hormones crazy. And I loved all the characters. Freya was a good main character, though I didn't like much her stubborness on disliking lawyers and keeping on going out with Connor. Oh, right, that was one character I didn't like. He was so boring. And kinda stupid, if you ask me.
I liked Anna a lot, even though I didn't agree with her about s...more

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

I really liked this book. Yes it's a little clichéd and predictable, but I loved it anyways. I love Miz Perry's voice and the stories she creates. She is able to get me so wrapped up and invested with what's happening that I don't ever want to put the book down until I've finished.

I loved both Greg and Freya. They had such great chemistry and were hot together. They both have such strong feelings for one another and it was just so refreshing t...more
Rebecca
Okay, so I gave this book 3 stars because its dead in the middle. I wanted to love this book but I just can't. I can't hate it either. This is my first review so I hope its okay....

This book was alright..

My favorite character in the whole book is Anna, she's funny and I can relate to her more than any other female characters in the book. However, I didn't like how she was so afraid to tell Freya what she had done. To me it just wasn't that big of a deal. Maybe it's from coming from a large fami...more

4.5 solid stars

First time I read anything from Kate Perry and it was a lovely surprise. Thanks Kobo Store for recommend it to me, very grateful.

I should probably be beating myself for liking it, because this is a series and now I'm feeling like I should read the others 9 books.. Where will I find the time to accomplish it is beyond me!

Anyways, Perfect for You has a very simple plot. Freya has a crush on her hot neighbor, Greg. And he is pretty much in love with her as well. They hanged out once...more

I will admit I did not like this book at the start. I found Freya to be annoying. But I’m glad I gave the book a chance to hold my attention.

Freya is a strong, independent and very serious woman. At least that’s how she first comes across – stiff. Greg is what kept me reading. He is easy going, open and sexy as hell. And the chemistry between the two is apparent from the very first interaction.

Okay so the book is centered around Freya and her need to get her groove back in the muse department. S...more

I am coming back and writing a review for this book a few days after I read it because I have spent the last 4 days reading Kate Perry's entire Laurel Heights series(so far) and moved to the 2nd book as soon as I was finished with this one. I love Freya and Greg's story, it is probably my favorite of all of them(to date). The series was a Goodreads recommendation from another series that I read that I liked. I love the Laurel Heights series. I would like to move there, to this place where strong...more

This was a nice light read just when I needed it! I have been reading plenty of heavy subject matter books and I just needed some love and this was perfect! Starts with a great male character Greg Cavanaugh who isn't a man- whore. Let me repeat that ladies no man-whore here just a genuinely nice guy who can't Figure out why his neighbor that he is completely enamored with despises him! Enter Freya Goodwin website designer that has lost her muse. She is on the verge of losing her job if said muse...more

You need me to inspire you and remind you how wonderful you are. You need me to kiss you." He lowered his head and pressed his lips to her neck. "You need me to love you.
"But more than that," he continued, "I need you. I need you to come home to. I need you to talk to and laugh with. I need you to love me back."


I will only say 3 things. 1) I finally read the first book! It was the only book in the series I hadn't read. 2) Creg is the most romantic guy in the series and 3) There is also Anna and...more

What a great surprise. I didn't have any expectations when I started this book. I saw it for free in the kindle store so I decided to give it a try. Best idea I've had in a long time. Both characters were very easy to love. The chemistry was fantastic. It was fun to see Greg so sure about his feelings very early in the book (yes the male character ! can you believe it ??).
The secondary romance was a nice plus, and very romantic in my opinion. I really loved Anna. She was one smart and yes, snea...more

Sweet and fast read

loving the Kate Perry books. Loved this one in the series. sweet story and hot read. definitely worth a look into!
Rachel Gifford
Cute, quick read. I may try to read the others in this series, eventually. 3.5 stars.
Esther David
I think I'm confused. Freya is as confused as me. I think though I haven't got anything against showcasing a woman's personality as that of a flirty swishy kind but I definitely don't like some authors' character depiction. It has over time definitely given me an image of a woman from the West to have a habit of falling into the arms of first available man and then testing out with another. Well it was an ok read. Neither too appealing to my sensitive feminist thoughts but bt the same time Anna...more

Kate has tangoed at midnight with a man in blue furry chaps, dueled with flaming swords in the desert, and strutted on bar tops across the world and back. She’s been kissed under the Eiffel Tower, had her butt pinched in Florence, and been serenaded in New Orleans. But she found Happy Ever After in San Francisco with her Magic Man.
