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

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

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,

★★★✩✩ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Xe Sands gives us a lovely narration. Good differentiation between characters and I liked her pacing and inflection.

I was enjoying this lighthearted book until - bamb - a bit of a double standard occurred. In any book, if the hero did what Freya did, I think the readers wouldn't forgive him.

Still, I'll go on with the series.

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

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

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.

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.

"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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Freya Godwin is a marketing wiz who has lost inspiration. Greg is a divorce lawyer who’s been hung up on his downstairs neighbour. Before Freya found out Greg’s line of work, she thought they could’ve been so good together. That’s basically the meat and potatoes of the story. Freya has a problem with Greg being a lawyer, and Greg simply wouldn’t quit.

In an attempt to entice her inner muse to come out, Freya decided she needs to get laid. So she puts out an ad. I’m not doing a very good job at su
