Kurzbeschreibung

Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle of nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can’t say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.

Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there’s nothing pretend about their relationship.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superstar 18. Juni 2014
Von Carista
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe bis jetzt erst ein Buch von Cardeno C. gelesen und fand es schrecklich, darum war ich jetzt umso überraschter, wie gut mir dieses gefallen hat.
Die Charaktere sind sehr, sehr sympathisch. Es wäre schön gewesen zu lesen, wie sich auch Jeremy ausnahmsweise um Reg kümmert, das hat mir ein bisschen gefehlt, aber das Buch hat einen sehr guten Gesamteindruck hinterlassen, darum 5 Sterne.

Eigentlich war ich bisher kein großer Fan von Cardeno C.. Alle Bücher, die ich bisher von CC gelesen habe, fand ich eher mittelmäßig. Aber nachdem ich das Gemeinschaftswerk "Control" von CC und Mary Calmes (als absoluter Mary Calmes Fan ein muss für mich) gelesen habe und begeistert war, habe ich doch noch einen Versuch mit CC gewagt und wurde Gott sei Dank nicht enttäuscht. Die Charaktere sind überzeugend, sympathisch und witzig. Kann man ohne sich zu langweilen mehr als einmal lesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Excellent 8. Mai 2014
Von Christy Loves 2 Read - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm always excited when a favorite author, in this case, Cardeno C., is releasing a new book. 'Perfect Imperfections' is a stand-alone book, which I understand is making the author a little nervous about readers’ responses, but the author wanted to try a non-series book. To that, I say - Phooey and a blight upon your home if you don't adore this latest creation. Well, okay, that might've been a bit much, however, I totally loved this book and I hope you do, too.

Fate must've been watching over these two men when Jeremy Jameson, Grammy award winning superstar, taking time for himself before his next tour begins, walks into the bar in Munds Park, Arizona, where Reg Moore, laid-back, easygoing, looking to save money for his next vacation somewhere, is bartending. Jeremy found someone who knows who he is, but doesn’t treat him any differently, regardless. They just talk for hours and when Jeremy mentions how lonely it gets on tour and it never seems to work out when he brings someone, Reg jokingly says he'd go and pretend to be his boyfriend just so Reg could visit all those places. When Jeremy makes the offer, Reg figures Jeremy is drunk, so Reg comes up with a drunk test and they bet on it. If Reg wins, he's going on tour for seven months, but when it's done, Reg wants another five months with Jeremy just traveling wherever they want to go. A heady concept for a man whose life is scripted down to the minutes.

"See? That's what I mean,” Jeremy took a bite of his banana and kept talking while he chewed. “Everybody I've dated says they want to come on tour to be with me, but you know what? They don't. What they want is to do the things they enjoy. The red-carpet stuff they're all over, but the rest of it bores them, and being with me alone bugs them, and then they get pissy and resentful, and I don't need to deal with that while I'm working.”
"...And, you're okay with the world thinking Jeremy Jameson is gay just so we can drink a few beers and I can run interference for you with annoying press people?”
“Sure. Why should I care what they think about that?”

To label Jeremy as Hollywood royalty is, actually, accurate, although he hates being called that. His grandfather was a three time Oscar winning director, his mom has just as many statues for acting and his dad is still known, even after his overdose and death, as the greatest rock legend ever born. It is a huge relief and just relaxing, that Reg treats him just like any other guy, yelling at him to quit being a wuss and visit his mom, teasing him about being a diva, etc. It's a piece of normal that Jeremy has never had. Reg is the best friend Jeremy never had. And, as the months go by, Jeremy realizes how desperately he needs that.

It's impossible to spend every day together and not get to know the other person. What Reg discovers is that Jeremy hasn't ever had a real relationship, one where the people in it weren't out for what they could get, and Jeremy doesn't think sex is all that great, but the human touching and connection is why he does it. So Reg vows to show Jeremy what a real relationship is like, even if it is pretend. With all the media flak that Jeremy is getting about his "boyfriend" and lying about being gay, Reg and Jeremy have to up the stakes a little in public for the press. Jeremy just never guessed he'd feel the way he does from Reg touching him.

"Reg?”
Reg slid his arms around Jeremy's waist, cupped his backside, tugged him close. “Yes?”
“I think maybe I'm not straight after all,” he said, his expression earnest.
Reg tilted the corners of his mouth up. “I think maybe you're right.”

I fell completely in love with Jeremy and Reg right from the beginning. Jeremy is so clueless about his own feelings and his own desires, and he can be pouty, whiny, and needy. Most of the time, like Reg, I just wanted to ruffle his hair and snuggle him. Jeremy has been alone his entire life while surrounded by people. Reg is the most amazing combination of sexy, assured, confident, without being arrogant or cocky, tender, loving, smart, funny, and deep-down steady. He makes Jeremy laugh, he takes care of him, and that is exactly what Reg needs - someone to love and spoil.

Oh, Cardeno, you've outdone yourself, my friend. I'm actually sorry it isn't a series, because I could really read more of these guys. I love it. Thank you for giving me Jeremy and Reg.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well Written, Very Sweet and Romantic Slow-Burn. 6. Mai 2014
Von Kazza - On Top Down Under Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The official burb gives a pretty clear outline of Perfect Imperfections. Jeremy Jameson is Hollywood and rock royalty. When he sneaks off on his own one night for some private down-time, he meets a nice, easy going guy tending bar at a small town pub. A guy who doesn't seem at all star struck in his presence. More than this, he seems incredibly genuine and has the ability to make Jeremy feel calm. Jeremy ends up staying for six hours at the pub and he and Reggie talk for a lot of that time. Because Jeremy has had a few to drink, Reg makes sure he stays at his place the night. Jeremy soon discovers that Reg loves adventure and he wants to travel, he just doesn't have the funds to be able to do it. As it happens, Jeremy is about to head off on a world-wide tour and he would like someone to accompany him, no strings attached...except, well, Reg is perfect to be his "pretend boyfriend."

"You should come with me," Jeremy joked. "I'll tell everyone I stopped dating starlets, and you're my new arm candy."

Reg feels that Jeremy has had a few and when he wakes up in the morning the offer will be rescinded. But it isn't. Reg is offered the same pay he is on now, only with first class travel and being part of a tour thrown in. What starts out as Reg being Jeremy's pretend boyfriend, keeping him company on the tour and organising adventures in different cities between gigs, ends up as more. Before long, Jeremy finds that Reg is not only good company but he has the ability to calm him down and help him cope more. That he enables him to deal with other distractions in his life - like interviews that are more frequent than usual, and at the worst possible times, and the paparazzi that seem to know every single movement he makes on this particular tour.

This is a nice book, a character and romance driven story that has no dramas or miscommunications. It is very much about the development of the relationship between Reg and Jeremy. That Reg may initially see this as travel and an adventure, but soon finds a lot to like about Jeremy. That Reg is gay and that he believes Jeremy is at least bi, if not gay himself, but he will take his time and see where it goes without scaring him. That Jeremy has never thought highly about the act of sex before with women but he has this increasing friendship-cum-relationship with a man who sees him as more than a celebrity. Who he begins to see as more than just a friend. That there is a basis for the relationship that develops between the two men to beyond 'pretend boyfriend.'

I want to add this, I actually thought Perfect Imperfections was about a gay muso who didn't want to be 'out.' It isn't. I know it is fiction, and I get that, but I am really not big on GFY/OFY, I rarely read them. Mostly it's because I feel they play into the hands of people who believe that being gay is a lifestyle choice. But Cardeno C went to great pains to work with this in a manner that made me comfortable reading the book. When Jeremy tells his manager, Bill, that Reg is to be his new love interest, Bill doesn't like it much. He'll spin it for his client, but he also shares his feelings about it being used as a ploy -

"It means the homophobes are going to be pissed you're gay, and those of us who are actually gay, and have dealt with everything that entails, are going to be pissed when you change your mind about it as if your sexual orientation is a jacket you can take off and put on whenever you have a whim."

Not to mention several other points that were very well handled and respectful. I totally bought the fact that Jeremy was unsure of his own sexual fluidity and that he fell for Reg. Nothing felt forced or awkward.

My only niggles with Perfect Imperfections are that Jeremy reads younger than his age (thirty one turning thirty two) and that Reg says 'cool' and 'awesome' far too often for my liking. Hence the 4 stars.

Overall:

I really enjoyed Perfect Imperfections because I liked Reg and Jeremy as a couple. They didn't shine individually for me, but together they worked very well, but, really, that was the whole idea. It was also the time taken by Cardeno C to work out their relationship - this book is over a period of a year - Jeremy's realisations, and the slow burn to them being together, that were particularly well written. Recommended for those who like rock star or celebrity stories (which is never played up to the hilt), a kind of GFY/OFY/sexually fluid storyline and a sexy, sweet MM romance with its fair share of 'aww, isn't that sweet moments.' Very nice, romantic reading.

"You break my heart sometimes," Reg whispered. "Kills me how alone you've been." He pulled Jeremy down, tucked Jeremy's head under his chin, and squeezed him close. "So glad I found you." With Reg's muscular arms around him, Jeremy felt safe, like nothing and nobody, himself included, could pry him away from this man.
"And don't worry," Reg said. "If you try to push me away, I'll remind you why you need to hold on tighter instead."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful 1. Juni 2014
Von Valerie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow this is the first book I've read from this Author and it won't be my last.
This story was beautiful I love how the Author slowly built the relationship between Jeremy a famous rock star who looks to escape all the paparazzi always hounding him and Reg a down to earth bartender in a small town.
Jeremy happens into a small bar hoping to be unnoticed and meets Up with Reg the friendly and can I say Hot bartender.
After a drunken night and comfortable bond Jeremy asks Rog to come on tour with him .
Time passes and the build Up of the most beautiful friendship and trust forms , we get to see how these two take it to the next level and experience the most beautiful bond.
I highly recommend this book I can't say enough about what a beautifully written this story is.
A definite five stars for me

3.0 von 5 Sternen Imperfect Imperfections 11. Mai 2014
Von ShinyNickel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a difficult review to write because I have such conflicting feelings regarding this book. Firstly, the two leads, Jeremy and Reg, are immensely appealing. Loveable and memorable characters are practically a Cardeno C. trademark, and this book is no exception, but there wasn't a whole lot going on otherwise. Very little to no conflict, etc.- I didn't experience any breadth of emotion. Sure, I had a small slip of a smile throughout ( how can you not with those two?), but I wanted more. I need more from this author. And, however enjoyable, the plot was ludicrous. Thankfully, I'm a master of suspended belief.

I'm neither expecting nor desiring a literary masterpiece, but I would like something to chew on, something with substance rather than being spoon fed complacent fluff.

That disappointment aside, I still liked the book. I'd still read and purchase it again. See? Entirely conflicting. But, if you're already a fan of Cardeno C. I'd say go for it- with the above issues in mind. However, if you're a new reader of this author I'd recommend first reading: "Walk With Me", The Mates Series, "More Than Everything" to get a better glimpse of her capabilities.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it! 7. Mai 2014
Von d.blue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Perfect Imperfections. I almost thought Jeremy was too naive for a rock star, but he really did lead a sheltered and controlled life. The story is fairly angst free, with very likable characters. The camaraderie between Jeremy and Reg is immediate but their friendship really develops when they go on tour together. The more they are together, the more Jeremy looks to Reg for comfort and support and Reg is wonderful in that role. The friendship to romance is slow to develop but evolves at a nice pace, and once they make the decision to take it to a more intimate level – it is hot. Reggie IS the Bomb (you have to read the book to know why). I thought the way the author handles a character not realizing he is gay until age thirty-one is well done. The way Jeremy’s manager viewed Jeremy and his relationship with Reg was annoying at times but also felt realistic for the circumstances.

If you are looking for a light, sweet, romantic story this would be one I would recommend.
