Review- Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines

Summary-

Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?

Review-

Simple Perfection is the much anticipated sequel to Twisted Perfection. Though Twisted Perfection did not end on a major cliffy I was eagerly waiting for Simple Perfection. The reason being Woods, of course. I read the book for him and I loved the book for him.

Woods has a lot of things to deal with. An unexpected tragedy leaves him the sole bearer of the family business. All the things Woods had decided to leave behind for Della come crashing down on him. I loved Woods. Yes, I'm repeating myself but he was amazing. You could feel his devotion to Della. Sometimes, it did result in over protectiveness but his love was unwavering.

Della wants to be strong for Woods. But her issues are even more messed up than his. Della was still the same sweet girl we'd met before, perfectly balancing Woods out. But she had her insecurities. It did get a tiny bit frustrating but when we see her nightmares from before you know how horrifying her past was. It justifies the way she is.

The romance between Della and Woods was beautiful and their bond continues to grow strong. They are vulnerable with each other but their passion burns hotter by each page. They had a mix of tenderness and intimacy. We get to see how everyone else in Rosemary is doing as well.

There were a lot of twists in the second half of the book which I so did not see coming. Unexpected developments take place where Tripp and Grant are concerned. Abbi teases us just enough to make us hungry for the next book. I loved Simple Perfection and can't wait to read what next Abbi has in store for us.

  1. After our twitter chat, I read few chapters, and from that alone, I'm can tell that Woods is everything I expected him to be. I put Della in front of his family and that is the kind of commitment I love from a man. Also, I love love love that he doesn't give a shit about Angelina and he always lets her know that. I'm very curious to see where it will go wrong between Woods and Della (hopefully nowhere) because that has to happen, right? Great review as always, Janhvi! I can't wait to finish this book so we can finally discuss the spoilery sections :)

  2. I should just skip your reviews for Abbi's books cause they always remind me that I need to read her books. Well one thing is sure when I start with her books it won't be this book. Woods sounds great though. Great review Janhvi :))

  3. I've not had the easiest time with Glines novels but I keep hearing Woods is fantastic so maybe I need to give her another shot. Yes?
