Almost Perfect (Fool's Gold #2)
Back in high school, Liz Sutton was the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Then she’d stolen the heart of the most popular boy in town, and their secret romance helped her through the worst of times. Until Ethan Hendrix betrayed her and everything they’d ever meant to each other. Devastated and pregnant, Liz left Fool’s Gold, California – forever, she thought…
Okay here are my thought on this book down and dirty. I liked everything about this story but the hero Ethan. He was a stupid, asshat, douchebag, and treated the woman he suppose to love who is also the mother of his child like shit. Not just in the beginning but til the very last page. So sorry I'm not sorry, but I don't give a shit he says he sorry. He is sorry alright a sorry ass selfish POS. I would have given the book a 5 star rating had he ended up alon ...more
Really. Would someone tell me how on earth anyone can like Ethan and consider him the romantic interest in this........romance. Why on earth would anyone want him. And his mother! All self-righteous. Why didn't she knock him upside the head and tell him off for his behavior. And what was with the main character ( ...more
I blame my need for reading a chic lit on Jenn Bennett.
This is not what I was looking for.
This was horrible.
I wanna crawl into my bed and cry. It was that bad.
The hero is an asshole.. he keeps on blaming the female lead for things she had no control over when from my point of view he should be taking most of the blame or his dead ex wife. Through out ...more
I'm really loving this series. Mallery has hooked me completely. I wish we didn't have nearly two months to read the last book in the series.
I'd recommend reading the series in order. Lots of continuity going on.
Back when they were teens, town golden boy Ethan Hendrix and poor-girl-with-an-unwarranted-bad-reputation Liz Sutton had a classic secret romance. But then Ethan trashed Liz to his friends to save face and she ran away. Only to find three weeks later sh ...more
Tell me about it.
I was curious to read this book because its Secret Baby plot sounded quite similar to Mallery’s Sweet Trouble, a story that packed a huge emotional punch for me. I wondered if the formula would work again, or if it would feel too much like a rerun. Well, it was a bit too familiar at times--but a much ...more
I’d heard good things about this author, and thought I’d try one of her books out. I like books with kids – they add a twist – and picked Almost Perfect.
I am still recovering from the horror.

Ethan on the other hand is Selfish,mean,arrogant and in first book of this series"Chasing perfect"u will come to know he stopped speaking to his best friend Josh for 10 years because Josh became ...more
Liz was certainly the big draw. I liked her from the start. She's strong and smart and kind and doing her best as a mother. Indeed, the motherhood moments in the book were standouts both in the character of her son as well as her interactions with the nieces dumped in her lap. Liz shows courage and no small amount of forbearance in dealing with the town an ...more
Let's see... where to begin with this one... Susan Mallery is so hit or miss with me. I was hoping this would be good because the premise had potential to be heartfelt and angsty. Oh, I felt something alright. Just not the warm and fuzzies I was hoping for.
The H and h are the typical social opposites; the H being the small town's golden boy and the h the pariah, mainly because of her mother's drunkeness, prostitution-ness, and ...more
No me gustó excesivamente el personaje de Ethan. Comprendo lo que dice y hace hasta que le demuestran que intentaron hablar con él, pero desde ese momento en adelante se comporta como un malcriado.
And really, aside form not being able to use contraceptives and practice safe sex, there are a heap of more horrible characteristics to him.
Plain and simple- he sucked. Big time.
Also the stage speech in the end?
Sorry it can not delete all the bad things that happened. Not in my book.
I did like the heroine, but I am unable to give more than 2 stars on the sole stand of her being written well.
P.S. Did any of you feel he had even a spec o ...more
I was soooo looking forward to this book (even though I didn't much like Fool's Gold #1)and I have to say I'm not disappointed.
I think there is the potential for a lot of people to be annoyed with Ethan and maybe even Liz, but I can't say that I was at all.
The hidden-child theme is one of my favourites because it is such an impossible situation. How can two people fall in love after such a betrayal. I also love the themes where the heroine comes from a really tortured past wher ...more
I was so excited to begin reading Almost Perfect and could not believe that I was given the chance yet again to read it before it hits shelves on June 29th. Thank you NetGalley!
Okay seriously...What do we need to do to get Susan's books on the big screen? Every time I read her books I picture a movie or at least a TV mini series. It needs to be done! LOL
Anyway, the book kicks off right where Chasing Perfect left off. It begins with Liz who receives an e-mail from her nieces (that she ...more
These books are *okay* if all you're looking for is fluff (and sometimes just sub par fluff at that). This book though....I would just skip it if I were you. All you need to kn ...more
Ethan was the most stupid character..EVER! Given he's a good man made it more frustating. Thankfully he had Liz, now she's a really good woman. I liked her a lot. That balanced it out.
I'm beginning to grasp the way Ms. Mallery writes her stories, I like how she writes about real people, the ones with real emotions and flaws. It's comforting. Her books are equivalent to comfort food :)

I don't understand why certain things and details are left out, and this frustrates me to no end. Too many loose ends for my liking. How did the gir ...more
I’m always partial to hidden children themes in my romance stories. I can understand and relate because such incidents do happen in real life but for the most part, there is a part of that wonders what would make a woman not share that she is having a chi ...more
Almost Perfect had me Almost Crying throughout the whole book! This was such an emotional roller coaster for me! It made laugh, get angry, get sad...it literally had me on the verge of tears the whole time...until the end, when I finally cried happy tears.
To keep this review from getting too personal, lets just say that I’m mom and that may have led to this book resonating with me on so many levels. I agree that Liz should’ve tr ...more
