A Perfect Mistake was a story full of Southern charm, undeniable attraction, and a secret that could shatter everything. This is the second installment featuring the Outlaw Brothers, or the “unholy trinity” of bad-boy hotness, and it did not disappoint!

Verity Fairchild, known as “Holy Mary Verity” the beautiful preacher’s daughter is back in Suttontown after a year, spending it supposedly on a mission in Kenya. She’s tried so hard to live up to the town and her father’s expectations of perfect,

This is my first Zoe Dawson read and I was all excited and then when I got into the book, I thought "What the heck," it was a lot toooo tamed for me. However, that's because I'm into more darker reads. So this took a lot of going back to my young un days of straight up fairy tale romance with a twist. Channeling this story into perception and to hit its objective was difficult. But it got done!

With that said. Let's get started.

I had a lot of fun with this book. Loads of Southern charm

Verity Fairchild is the preacher’s daughter and as such is held to very high expectations. However, Verity is human and makes mistakes like the rest of us.

Boone Outlaw is one of the Outlaw trio that have a bad reputation in Hope Parish. Boone has wanted Verity Fairchild for a really long time. But Boone had always made Verity off limits to himself and his two brothers.

Verity likes Boone and always has. She is deeply attracted to him. During the High School Graduation party something happened bet

I can say, in all honesty, that I have fallen prey to the Boone swoon. That boy is potent, and utterly lethal to women. I loved this book! From beginning to end, this book had me captivated. Also, the ending made me cry happy tears. I can't wait to continue on to Brax and River Pearls story. I highly recommend. <3

Four Fabulously Girly Stars

THERE WAS ANGST! There was passion, and secrets and heartbreak! I connected and I felt what these characters felt. I LOOVE Boone! Like seriously *swoon*

Wow. What a difference! I liked the first book in this series, A Perfect Mess, it was good, but I didn't connect with the story. That couldn't be more different from this. This book contained complicated and yet likeable main characters. Boone, one part of the Outlaw triplets was deep. He is known as the party-boy/ladies-man of the three, but th

You can tell Boone has some feeling for Verity, "she had on a lace bra beneath her wet shirt. The elusive design outlined against the white tank was unmistakable. Black lace. On the Preacher's daughter. Verity Fairchild like black lace. And I liked black lace on Verity Fairchild. It would be so good to take it off her. Eff me."

A Perfect Mistake is amazing! Thank goodness we get to see what happens with Boone and Verity. It was an underlying relationship in the making in A Perfect Mess. I can say again that the small town "parish" mentality continued throughout this book. I completely understand it!! Let's just say that being a preachers daughter (Verity) is not something I would wish upon anyone. The "perfect girl" possibly meeting her match with one of the "bad boy" triplets, is mouth dropping for sure! Again, the ba ...more

Another great story in this series. I so love Boone.

We met Boone and Verity in book one. This is their story. Boone like his brothers have fought hard to show the town they are not as bad as people think. Boone has fancied Verity for ages. She also fancied him until she thought he did something. Now she tries to keep him at a distance. Can these two sort things out??

This is a really brilliant story with fantastic characters. Loved it.

Guessed pretty much straight away what happened with Verity, and I still can't take any of the characters seriously with names like Booker Outlaw and River Pearl, but it was an enjoyable enough read.

Verity Fairchild has lived her whole life with the stigma that comes along with being the preacher's daughter. She's also lived for years wishing she could be something else. She wants to be a fashion designer. She wants to let go. She wants to be free.

But someone threw a wrench into those plans. Boone Outlaw—one third of the unholy trinity; the town bad boys. The Outlaw triplets.

Verity is filled with anger and that anger is directed straight at B

Charming and moving, Verity needing to find her inner streight to live her life the way she always dream. The only thing that I don't like at all is the hit by his back that Boone recived be cause it was the same as the one recived by his brother. He could be hit by a car when he was driving his motorcycle, or other injurie like this.

Boone and Verity's story was fantastic, was tearful and scary moments and misjudgments to work through. I love the storyline and of course the characters. On to the next Outlaw Brother once you start you can't stop.

Oh the Boone Swoon is definitely making an appearance! The 2nd brother of the unholy Outlaw trinity is getting his chance at happiness but there are a lot of obstacles to overcome before he can get there.

Boone has been attracted to Verity Fairchild for years- but as the preacher's daughter, she was way off limits to a guy like him. The small southern town they live in does not understand the meaning of "forgive and forget" regardless of how much the townspeople claim to be God- fearing folk so t

I received an ARC in exchanged for an honest review.

This is the second in the Perfect Secret Series but can be read as a standalone. I hadn't read the first in the series and had no trouble picking this one up. Verity Fairchild, the preacher's daughter, is returning to her hometown of Hope Parish for the summer after spending a year in New York City.

"Holy Mary" Verity has tried to live up to her parent's expectations. Really. She wasn't a party-girl, she wasn't a promiscuous teen, but she also wasn't in Kenya on the mission for the past year--as she had told them. No, Verity was in New York trying to rid herself of her perfect mistake. If only that freaking Boone Outlaw hadn't tainted her drink at that graduation party, and her perfection.

Boone Outlaw has always wanted Verity Fairchild. Not that he could ever hope to deserve her. In high sc

I cannot tell you how much I love this story! There are romance recipes that I am simply drawn to like moth to a flame, and A Perfect Mistake had two of them:
1. Childhood friends who crushed on each other, then became sweethearts.
2. Childhood enemies turned sweethearts.
What I like about these "recipes" is that you can jump into the romance right away because there is already an established relationship between the two. It doesn't matter if it's animosity or sweetness, just that there's

This is such a fantastic follow up book to the Perfect Mess.
There is a great mystery of what really happened between Boone and Verity that keeps you wondering, from there underlying encounters in Perfect Mess you just know its going to be good. Then when the bomb is dropped you just like bloody hell! sat on the edge of you seat.

As the story unfolds you can see why Verity had such a hate filled view of Boone in Perfect mess the trauma that she went through, the hurt, pain and guilt she suffers i

Judgment is something Verity Fairchild knows all too well. As the preacher’s daughter, Verity has faced the stigma that others have placed on her throughout her life. Every step in her life has been under the microscope. It’s one of the things that attracted her to an Outlaw.

Boone Outlaw knows the reality of never escaping ‘labels’ in life. The Outlaw brothers have always been outcasts in their small town. Each trying so hard to be an upstanding citizen. Yet, the stigma of their namesake was som
