Review: Perfect Imperfections by Cardeno C

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.

4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

Perfect imperfections is the story of Jeremy and Reg, two men who form a bond, find a friendship and fall in love when least expected.  

Jeremy is a rock star and Hollywood royalty. He finds himself at a dive bar one night just wanting to escape his life.  For most of his life the only thing that he has known is music.  For someone who grew up the way that he did he seemed to have lived a sheltered life.  Music is his only friend.  Until he meets the bartender Reg Moore and his life changes in a direction he never saw coming.

Jeremy is getting ready to go on tour and asks Reg to go with him.  He wants him to pretend to be his boyfriend.  Now here's the thing, Jeremy is not gay.   He's been in relationships, if you can call them that, with many woman.   So why would a straight rock star ask a gay man to go on the road with him and pretend to be his boyfriend?  That's the exact question I was asking myself.  But as you read on you see why and you completely begin to understand Jeremy.  Jeremy is tired of dating woman who only want him for who he is.  He is tired of living his life the way everyone else tells him too.  The relationships that are for show or just go nowhere.  That night at the bar he may have been a little tipsy but there wasn't denying how easy it was to talk to Reg.  and Reg expected nothing in return,  Reg agrees to this charade and joins him on tour.

I loved the relationship that Jeremy and Reg had.  Reg was his protector in many ways. He knew how to calm Jeremy down when he had his tantrums.  He knew what he needed and when he needed it.   But Reg also knew Jeremy better than he knew himself.  When Jeremy told him sex was never a big deal to him and there was never any connection, Reg understood why. He knew that the feelings that started to grow between them was more than friendship but it just took Jeremy a little longer to figure out the truth, that he is gay. 

Jeremy was cute and adorable and so naive at times.  But Reg was there to show him the way.  It was fun to watch these two form their friendship. At times I wondered though how jereny didnt see what was going on all along.  Some of the ways Reg took care of him were not ways that two men who were just friends acted.  So you ask yourself was Jeremy that naive and sheltered that he had no idea what was going on?  And while i do think he was very naive and clueless as to the feelings that he had for Reg and vice versa, I honestly think Jeremy just felt comfortable with Reg.  He was no longer lonely, he had someone who actually cared about him and not what he did.  Reg took care of him in ways that no one else did and that is why I think Jeremy never questioned it.    Reg was very patient with him and moved at his pace which I loved. The two of them were so perfect together.  

This was a really cute, light fun read.  When Jeremy figured it all out the two of them together went from being cute and adorable to hot and sexy.  Did some of it seem a little unrealistic?  Yes but that is what made these two so cute and so fun together.  I wouldn't have it any other way.  Jeremy was young and pouted often when he didn't get his way but with Reg by his side it just made life better and easier.  I loved this book and look forward to reading more from Cardeno C in the future.
