1.5 rounded off to 2 disappointing stars!!

Where do I even start with this review?

I think I may have to apologize in advance to anyone who might find this review/rant offensive. Nothing against Abbi Glines really. I have loved some of her books in the past and I think she pretty much got herself a sweet slice of the NA pie genre. But that said, this book was such a disappointment for me.

Simple Perfection starts off right where Twisted Perfection leaves off. Woods Kerrington is now solely responsible for his family’s country club. He is dealing with his grieving mother, his crazy ex, and the stress is getting to him. Thankfully, he has Della. The only thing keeping him together, keeping him sane.

After the death of Wood’s father, he inherited everything and is now controlling the company, the same one he was once willing to give up his life in sacrifice for it.
Well, not anymore.
Della still has a lot of problems to overcome, but if Woods will have to choose, we will always choose Della. He will fight for her until the end.


Della will have a lot to overcome in this book, and she is settled in solving their problems and finally be the woman Woods deserves.

"Right now he needs you, I get it. But, Della, you started this journey to live life. Don’t forget that. You left one prison; don’t find yourself in another."

I’m going to keep this review short and “meh” because every road I can think to take leads to spoiler town and that’s not what I’m trying to accomplish. I love the fact that Della took some time to find her inner strength. I wish she would’ve gone about it in a different manner, but the finished product was a strong

I adored the first book. You can read my gushy review. And I was so happy that the next one was available right away. But this book was everything I don't like about NA.

1. Contrived drama.
2. Immature characters.
3. Misunderstandings leading to a lot of trouble.
4. Added angst and misery for whatever reason. I hate when the author(view spoiler)

I was really looking forward to another book about Woods and Della especially since I enjoyed the first book so much. I only have one question....What in the heck happened?

The Woods we knew and loved is G-O-N-E! Instead we have someone who cannot even function unless Della is around him every single minute! I understand he's concerned for her and that she makes him feel better but Woods was the one guy who had his act together. I hated that it was taken away.

“Our chapter was over. It was the most beautiful chapter in my life. I knew I’d had the happy ending way before it was time and now I had to live the rest of the story without him.”

Brace yourselves because Abbi Glines is armed and dangerous in this second instalment of the Perfection series and she is taking no prisoners. I was on pins and needles throughout most of this book, absorbing all the emotional curveballs being thrown at me and just when I thought it was safe to relax and breathe e
I'm sort of at a loss for words right now. I have said before that Abbi Glines books are like mashed potatoes -- comfortable, something you know, and love. I didn't really enjoy the Vincent Boys/Brothers all that much but other than that I liked the Too Far series and most of the Seabreeze series was solid, as well as her paranormal series. When I read Twisted Perfection I thought OMG Abbi has finally upped her game, I thought that book was wonderful. I loved Della, I loved Woods, I loved them t ...more

Yeah, clearly I missed it. I think I need to just give up on all of these multiple book series. Give each couple a book and wrap that shit up. PLEASE don't create unnecessary drama just for the sake of more books!

And please, please quit turning the hero in to a big vagina. First Rush and now Woods! Remove balls, insert vagina. for the story itself. Woods' dad has died and he now sits on the Kerrington Club throne. He's dealing with his mom and the ex-fiance

4/5 stars

THe first half of the book was (sorry!) frustrating to me. Woods was fine, it was Della who frustrated me so much. In the first book, I never pegged her as someone so weak as she is in this one!
She was too nice, she gave into her fears way too easily, and ran away without finding out the reason of a huge misunderstanding.

Because of the big stupid misunderstanding, Woods and Della were separated for a big part of this book!

THe second half gets much better though. We finally find out wh

I can't even make my words work right now! This book was fantastic, it was fucktastic... It was FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC. It was candy for my eyes.

GAH! Why aren't my thinking things working?????

Woods has found his girl, the one that owns him, owns his soul. His all-in. But Della has demons of her past and too many fears for their future to fully trust in the fact that she will ever be what he needs. This is not just a story about their love, this is Della's story of overcoming her fears and facing th

No words can describe what I'm feeling right now. I am sooo in love with Woods Kerrington and this perfect sequel of the Rosemary Beach. Honestly, I did not immediately delve into this book after reading Twisted Perfection because I didn't enjoy Woods and Della's story that time.

I just can't get into this book at all. It's the same song and dance for nearly 100 pages and it grated on my damn nerves! There was no substance with this story. Halfway through and that was enough for me. I can't even believe I made it that far.

I honestly felt like there was no climax to the story. There was no build up, no suspense and no chemistry. Nothing. I felt nothing. It was just... blah. There were too many I love yous and night terror type episodes for me to take. The heroine runn

This rating may get upped to 3, but for now I say this...
a. too much formula without finesse--parents are effed up and manipulative, angst from trauma of past abuse, boy-meets-girl, but boy's ex or relative is a she-bitch who hates his girl, girl runs away- and so this formula is getting played, especially when...
b. the plot is not fleshed out enough , where pertinent conflicts are left unresolved, H/h development as a couple is weak after the final "this is it; let's BE toge

Simple Perfection is a beautiful inspiring story. It's about being strong,loving unselfishly, forgiving,understanding,and acceptance. I like the plot of the story but somehow some of it didn't work for me. I'm not disappointed but it didn't amused me either. This was a sad,emotional read though you can't put it down.

What i like
I like Della so much. I like how she overcome her past and bad memories. Indeed she was a very strong woman.

Ummmmm… WTF just happened? Honestly, that’s pretty much the only thought my brain can process right now. But *pulls up the big girl panties* more of that later…

First and foremost, this is the conclusion to Woods and Della’s story, and it is an emotional, angsty, romantic, and really freaking steamy ride.

I love Woods! He is deeply, madly, and completely in love with Della, and is still swoony as all hell. But I must say, he almost seems a bit obsessed with her, unable to function without her clo

Well, what can I say about "Simple Perfection"?
I felt like we waited an eternity for its release date.
I really loved "Twisted Perfection"!!
Woods was so very alpha, beautiful & swoon worthy.

While reading this book, I kept asking myself "where did my Woods go?!!"
He was extremely sappy at times.
I loved how he was "all in" with Della but it was like he lost his manhood!!
He won points with me for always putting Della first but he was a bit smothering.
Even with him being on top of Della

It was great to be back in Rosemary Beach with Woods, Rush, Jace, and the rest of the gang! It’s official, Woods is definitely my favorite. He may have grown up as a rich and spoiled trust fund brat, but he seems to be the only one of his friends with an actual job. After his father’s unexpected death, Woods has taken over the Kerrington Club.

At 25, he is carrying on his grandfather’s legacy. He’s firing the current board of directors and surrounding himself with people that he trusts. This doe

I cannot believe this!!! I LOVED this installment of Woods and Della's story but damn if I wasn't pissed at 85%! Woods is a possessive alpha male to the max, but at the beginning his possessive more sounded like obsessive. His constant "I can't breathe without her" was a little much, but definitely showed how much he cared for her. Woods parents and their way of handling their son annoyed me. The rich and privileged only caring how others perceived them is such a waste of a human - I hate that h ...more

I think I'm really developing a love-hate relationship with Abbi Glines' sequels. Twisted Perfection is my most favorite work of hers and Woods and Della are my favorite couple. I really thought that she stepped up her game with their story, especially dealing with Della's complicated and sensitive back story.
