Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.
When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.
She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.
He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.
Something So Perfect by Natasha Madison was just that, perfect. Something So Perfect was hilarious, it was sexy, it was about a hockey player bad boy and it had a kick ass heroine. I read have read this one twice already. For me to read an ARC twice BEFORE it releases is something because I am usually so busy I don’t have the time to do that. I made time to read Something So Perfect again because I honestly loved it that much.
Matthew is over the top caveman and I LOVED that about him. He went for what he wanted and what he wanted was Karrie. I loved how he didn’t back down, how he made it known to her that it was happening between them whether Karrie wanted to admit it or not. Could he drive a nun to smother him in his sleep? Yeah but it worked for him. He was hot. He was sexy. He was funny. He was sweet. Most importantly of all he was perfect for Karrie. Since I have been told I can’t lick him to claim him *grumbles and growls at Natasha Madison* I will love him from a distance.
Karrie is sassy. She is feisty. She is a bit nuts but in a great way. She balances Matthew out in the best possible way. She can tamed his caveman antics and he can get her to melt. I loved how she stood by him, protected him, and when needed put him in his place. Even when he drove her nuts she loved him and that right there is something that is rare even in real life.
I devoured Something So Perfect both times I read it. I laughed, I called Matthew a caveman a time or ten, I cheered Karrie on while jealous at the same time. Natasha Madison did something perfect when she wrote Something So Perfect and this is a book I will be reading again and again. Make sure Something So Perfect is on your TBR lists because this is one you don’t want to miss!
When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
