Mr. (Not Quite) Perfect-Jessica Hart

Mr. (Not Quite) Perfect
Jessica Hart
Harlequin KISS, Dec 17 2013, $5.99
ISBN: 9780373207459

Glitz fashion magazine reporter Allegra Fielding sells a concept for an article to her powerful editor Stella on changing Mr. (Not Quite) Perfect into Prince Charming. Allegra has one other persuasion to perform. She must convince her practical temporary engineering roommate Max Warriner to be the makeover subject.

Recently dumped by his fiancée Emma for being more of a passionless friend than a committed lover, Max agrees to become the experiment if Allegra pretends to be his fiancée. Max begins to understand that relationships require two involved people offering what their partner needs to keep the fire burning. Allegra has an epiphany that her ideal paragon ironically is not good enough for her or any full-blooded woman to live with as it is more important that someone who cares so much about you that they will do things for you they detest. While the roomies fall in love, both fears that they fail to meet the other’s ideal perfect criteria.

Jessica Hart provides a wonderful contemporary romance in which the lead couple must leave their respective comfort zone if they want a loving relationship. Though the storyline goes the path as expected, readers will enjoy the engaging transformation of a modern day male Pygmalion.
