I was giving An ARC of this book for an honest Review so here goes......

Ugh,were to start! I have waited for this book for MONTHS! The way book one The Perfect Distraction Ended killed me. Knowing that Kate and Reed were both heart broken left me heart broken lol. But she ran from him because after what happened with Kyle she needed to work threw some things in her own time. She needed to work threw the taught's that she has used Reed. Well in her head she thinks that anyway. And NOW I have to

Melissa Rolka has done it again, Reed Harper does not disappoint! His usual sweetness toward Kate is back, but this time we also get to hear him sweet talk her in the bedroom. OMGHOT! If you thought you loved him in The Perfect Distraction, youll be dropping to your knees begging him to ditch Kate and be yours in The Perfect Emotion! Except for one major hiccup, youll probably fall more in love with Kate in this book. Youll start viewing her as friend and no one does that to a friend. Yep, Kate ...more

Mmmmm hmmmm this was good. Really good. And so much better than the first book.
Reed. Wow. He was sensitive when he needed to be. Smoking hot when his control wavered. Heroic. Gentle. Loving. Perfect. Yeah, he is perfect in every way.
Looking forward to book three xx

"I care about you so damn much. You do something to me that has never happened before."

I'm going to start off with I loved this book better then the 1st one!! There was a few reasons why. One of the main reasons was because we FINALLY got Reed's POV. I loved getting his point of view on what was going on. I also loved how Kate's backbone FINALLY

Reed, Reed, Reed. Oh Kate, you lucky biatch.

Kate is back at school after leaving last semester early to deal with the emotional fallout from Kyles attack and her mothers absence. She left Reed with only a note and now shes dealing with the guilt from the way she used him to distract herself from her problems. Reed justs wants her back, but hes willing to wait until shes ready. He knows she is pain and he wants nothing more than to help her. Problems are still looming in Kates life and now Reeds

***Arc was provided by author in exchange for an honest review***

Reed Harper can distract me and overwhelm me with emotions any time! Man, he is one fantastic book boyfriend. Mr. Blue Eyes is back in The Perfect Emotion, and this time, hes not letting anyone get in the way of who he wants not even Kate herself.

Book 2 in the Perfect series begins soon after The Perfect Distraction ended. Kate went home to heal and learn how to cope with the stressors in her life namely her mother and Kyle. She

The Perfect Emotion was a fantastic, romantic follow-up to The Perfect Distraction. In this book, Kate is back at school and is attempting to return to the normal life she had before the thing that happened in the last book happened. She's such a strong girl. Sure, she was a bit skittish and scared of getting hurt again, but that's to be expected after what happened.

Reed is nothing short of amazing. I adored him in the first book, but that's

Please dont read this review if you have not read the first book-as it may contain spoilers. In the second installment of The Perfect Series we are back with Kate and Reed, navigating the choppy waters of their relationship. When we left them, Kate needed some time to find herself and Reed was going stir crazy without her.
Kate is doing exactly what she said she was going to do, work on a different way to deal with her issues instead of running away from them. She takes the

I received a signed paperback copy from the author. Thank you so much.

I was so upset the way the first book ended; I totally get why it ended the way it did, but man did it tear my heart out. I understand that Katherine needed be whole before she could offer Reed anything but it still killed me.
While at home things have changed for Katherine, her mom is now at home, she has been in counseling getting help, and began to bond with her mom. She is learning to talk through things that bother her

Kate missed Reed, but was still not ready to be with him. There were a lot of issues she needed to address and conflicts that she wouldnt dare to involve him. So, to keep her mind sane, she decided to get herself distracted at any cost, and tried to move on.

Let me just say that I am in love with Reed I love everything he is and how he is with Kate. There love is amazing the kind you just pray that everything works.
Ok with that said lets see you start off the book with Kate avoiding Reed. Because of the things she is working on meaning her self. At first I was so annoyed with her but then as the chapters started going over why she was doing what she did I understood but did not like that she was hurting MY REED lol. But Reed is smart and he knows

Wow! This was a fantastic second book for the Perfect Series. I have been eagerly waiting to see how things would proceed after the end of The Perfect Distraction and I was not disappointed. Theres plenty of drama but theres also some seriously steamy moments, some downright sweet and romantic moments, and of course lots of opportunities for the characters to grow, heal, and mature.

Reed and Kate have things to work through but Reeds unwavering support and willingness to wait for Kate is so

The Perfect Emotion picks up the story with The Prefect Distraction has ended. Which for me, was a good thing, cause I was needing this story right away. I have to be honest, I waited to read them both together. I am so glad I didn't have to wait. I am not a patient person.
Kate is trying to recover after being attacked. She has decided to put men aside and work on her. I mean, can you really blame her? She has been through more than a girl her age (or, any age really) should ever have to go

Kate was finding it difficult to let go of the guilt she felt by hurting Reed. After leaving school to allow herself time to heal she returned to once again face the one guy that had made her feel alive. The problem was seeing him just intensified her guilt she felt about leaving him without and explanation and using him to forget her past boyfriend.
There was one problem...
Reed refused to give up. He refused to let go of Kate because she was the girl for him.
They found their footing once again

This book picks right back up where The Perfect Distraction ended.

Buckle-up this book is an EMOTION of roller-coasters!!

What with Kate getting back on track after Kyle's attack, who can really blame her for putting off "MEN" or * coughs REED...AHHHH Reed still as charming as the first time we met him. He's not so willing to let Kate, it concocts a BRILLIANT play to get her back...TENNIS ANYONE

Kyle is still very much in the picture, and is always

Amazing follow-up!!!

The Perfect Emotion continues Kate and Reeds story. Their story once again pulled me in instantly and captivated me from cover to cover.

Every girl should have a Reed for herself. Persistent, lovable and a guy who knows what is going through her mind. A guy who wont be stopped by anything to get his girl back.

The story has a wonderful pace. It is not rushed. It just flows.

Their story once again has dramatic angst and twist and turns that keep you even more glued to it.

As you know I disliked Kate a lot in the first book! And as this one started I also disliked her, BUT as it went on I slowly started to ease up on her and like her! She actually tried to face her problems and become a better person! She actually faced all the problems she avoided in book 1.

Reed was still the same, although I don't really understand what he's doing for Jess! (Its in the end I ain't spilling!) Let's just say, I see that biting him in the ass straight up if he doesn't tell Kate

Reed.....he just seems like the perfect boyfriend. His subtle to get Kate back were so sweet and he was so patient. I can't wait for the third book. Just wondering what kind of ride that book will take us on. There are so many characters in this series and so many different options.. I can see this series going on for quite a while...please! Thanks for sharing your talents with us Melissa!

I recommend this book to anybody looking for a modern romance. I love the way the author really allowed the reader to get to know the characters. There is a lot of depth and twists and turns in this book! I didn't think the ending was a cliffhanger, but I got the second book the second I finished this one!

Well done Melissa Rolka. I got sucked right into this whirlwind of a ride.
