really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, romance

Fast-paced, fun, and sexy. Jaine is spunky, swears a blue streak, and in her 30's with a decent office job. Not your typical heroine, nor is Sam, her love interest, the typical Prince Charming. Short-tempered and rather blunt, their first meeting (and subsequent clashes) are extremely fun to read about.

The mystery/detective element is not as strong as I was led to think by the blurb, but it's there, and the creepy madness of the killer is constantly present and threatening in the novel. The deaths of her friends are very real, and as the tension builds with the mental breakdown of the murderer, the book finishes with an all-time climax.

"Mr. Perfect" made an incredibly satisfying read; not only are the characters fun, with very realistic flaws and strengths, but the build-up to the finish was very well done by Howard. More often than not, readers end up disappointed when the ending flops or fails to deliver. This didn't happen here, and the ending was like a punch to the gut. Definitely worth the read.
