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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

This rating may get upped to 3, but for now I say this...

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.

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.

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

Della really goes through true personal growth in this book, you can’t help but see and want to fight with her.

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 have to say that I enjoyed the other book more Twisted Perfection but it was still pretty enjoyable. Unfortunately I had some issues with it. In my previous review I said that I like Della as a character, but now not so much. There is a difference between a character who has suffered through lot of messed up stuffed and a weak character. In the other book she was shown as strong, but with bad past and lots of stuff to work through. Here she was just weak. But I liked that around the end of the ...more
