Dreams of Perfection Book Review

Dreams of Perfection
Dreams Come True Book One
Rebecca Heflin

Book Description

Best-selling romance writer Darcy Butler is holding out for perfection in the form of her own carefully-crafted heroes. Once blissfully engaged to be married, Darcy’s post-traumatic commitment phobia is depriving her of the very thing she wants most: her very own happily-ever-after. Now, here she is just six months shy of her thirtieth birthday, and not a Prince Charming in sight.

Successful lawyer Josh Ryan is the boy-next-door with a soft spot for the less fortunate, and Darcy’s best friend without benefits. Darcy often comes to him lamenting her love-life, or the lack thereof, whereupon Josh patiently doles out his sage advice. Problem is Josh is in love with Darcy.

But when Darcy finds herself looking into the handsome face of the man who graces the cover of her soon-to-be-released novel, she’s convinced her dreams of perfection have come true. Or have they?


My Thoughts

Definitely one of the best romantic plots I have ever read. I really enjoyed the fact that Darcy was a romance author, and yet she couldn’t get her love life together. It just goes to show that sometimes reality and fiction really don’t mix. However in this book she meets a man right out of one of her novels, no literally one of her heroes has miraculous turned up in her life, but Darcy quickly finds out that sometimes Mr. Perfect can be just too perfect.

I really liked Darcy she reminded me of some aspects of myself and she had a fun personality and cute quirks. Josh absolutely cracked me up, he’s so adorable. I really liked Josh, he was probably my favorite character and was very relatable down to earth guy.

I liked the way she wrote this book, it was very upbeat, her characters are vibrant and they come alive on the pages and keep you very interesting.

Yes the plot does have an ending you see coming but I didn’t really mind that because the plot kept you intrigued. There was not a dry moment in the book and that is really hard to do especially if your readers know what’s coming. I give Rebecca major props for that one, it is a task that is not easily done but she did it flawlessly.

One of my favorite lines in the entire book is “Ah, the woes of the super-rich.” I don’t know why but that stuck in my mind and made me double think a few things.

Another thing that I really liked was that the Blake mystery was never entirely figured out, she hinted at things that might have happened but she leaves it up to the reader to make their final decision about Mr. Perfect, I have my theories and when you read it, I would like to hear your opinion on what you think happened. Other than that I will keep my mouth shut about what I think happened!

I really deeply enjoyed this book and I think the plot was rather fresh and interesting, I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a new and fresh story!
