Review – THE PERFECT LIFE by Erin Noelle
I had the perfect life.
The perfect husband. Colin Cassidy—the incredibly talented, extremely gorgeous, and unbelievably humble star NFL quarterback.
The perfect marriage. Our bond was unbreakable. His support unwavering.
The perfect career. As the recently-appointed executive director for the Boston chapter of Mending Hearts, a child abuse prevention and treatment program, my daily reward was helping to keep vulnerable, innocent children from being preyed upon and destroyed. It’s all I’d wanted to do since I was a teenager.
Perfect city. Perfect car. Perfect house with the perfect view.
From the outside looking in, it was impossible to find a single flaw in my life. I had it all. Everything I’d ever wanted.
But that kind of perfection came at a price. Demanded the ultimate sacrifice.
What happened when I discovered what I’d been missing all along? When I began to question if the lies were worth protecting?
What if suddenly the last thing I wanted was to be perfect?
Roxie and Jen’s Review
The Book Boyfriend series is one of our absolute favorites so when we saw the blurb and the blurb for Erin Noelle’s newest book we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. We were so excited when we dug in, but at the end we just couldn’t connect with this story as we hoped we would.
The prologue quickly reals you in. No doubt about it.
We all know that saying, “Everything not as it seems.”
Well, this book has a lot of secrets that are slowly revealed through out the whole story.
Meet Collin and Monroe Cassidy, America’s it couple. He is the rockstar of NFL, she is Hollywood royalty. They’re beautiful, happy and successful. What more could you want? We couldn’t help but swoon for Colin from the start, he is hot, sexy and supportive to Monroe.
As we read on things starts to unfold, secrets unravel. And we quickly learn there is always more the story than we are allowed to see. A game changer enters the perfect life of the couple that is adored by many.
Monroe is busy starting a new chapter of a charity close to her heart and during the process, her life changes.
She trying to navigate through the murky waters of her new feelings without getting hurt or hurting others in the process.
“My draw to him was undeniable, an electric charge that whirred through my body each time we touched.”
What started as a promise became a world full of secrets and regret. Commitments were made but the question arises, is it worth it?
“One word that would change everything.
One word I couldn’t take back.
One word I wanted to say again and again.”
While the premise of the story was fresh and promising, we questioned the decisions made by the characters often.
Overall we enjoyed this one but couldn’t fall in love as we hoped we would.
