In the next book of the Perfect Trilogy, Christine Ashton has to get over her fear of heights. Actually she needs to get over her fear of heights and a whole lot more. She thinks that by conquering her fear of heights she will be able to go sking and finally beat her brother at something and gain her father’s approval.
As part of the bet with her college suitemates, she goes to Colorado to get started on getting past this fear she has had for what seems like forever. Arriving about a week early, she hires an instructor to help her out. Enter Alec, the ski bum and he appears to be “perfect”…drat! Now she needs to refrain from the one thing Christine promised herself she wouldn’t do…date and fall in love with another loser guy with no prospects for a future. Christine has to keep Alec at bay all the while conquering her fear of heights, learn to ski really well so that she can beat her brother at something, and gain her father’s respect.
By the way, did I mention that Christine is a doctor, just like her dad. But…well you know where this is going don’t you? Well without giving away the rest of the story, Just Perfect by Julie Ortolon really examines the issues of the child/parent paradigm without getting too complicated in the process. Throw in a handsome guy who on the surface looks like a loser, but really isn’t and it makes for a very interesting and entertaining read.
I really like the fact that Ms. Ortolon was not afraid to show Christine’s strength as well as her vulnerabilities. She also slowly reveals Alec’s character true identity as well as both of their families. Of the three books in the trilogy, I would have to say this one was my favorite. At the end, I was actually yelling, “You go girl!” As for the reasons why, well you are just going to have to read and find out! Rating:
