Book:Something Like Perfect
Author:S.C Stephens
Summary: Something Like Perfect is about a hard-working, loyal, selfless woman named Valerie and her attraction towards her sister’s boyfriend. After receiving a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity, Valerie needs to decide if she’s ready to take the risks necessary to achieve her dreams. 

‘Something Like Perfect’ is a recipe for an equally blended milkshake of fluff and angst.

Valerie is a well-written protagonist. She had good instincts and wore her heart on her sleeve. The specific details the author added portrayed the emotions behind certain parts of the story. The diction was simple and set the tone. Foreshadowing helped progress the story. All the characters were relatable and neutral. The author did a great job of keeping the reader on their toes. ‘Something Like Perfect’ had some unexpected twists and turns that enhanced the inner plot. The book consists of many ironic phrases that convey the conflicting feelings of the characters, very well-done.

 Jake’s point of view would be appreciated because for a while, he’s only known as Valerie’s sister’s boyfriend. Jake and Valerie were similar in a lot of ways. Also, internal conflict between them would have added more layers to the story. Avoiding repetition is a daunting task, the author needs to trust the reader to pick up on the hints without much elaboration on the certain actions taken by the characters. This book is recommended for slow burn romance genre readers. 

Personal Note: This is the first book I’ve ever read of S.C Stephens and it captured me. I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing more. Thank you. ARC s provided by the publisher.
