Reviews of Barth's Previous Books:
Up To Me (#1) -- Kame
Friends to Lovers (#3) -- TBQ
The Reverse of Perfection was just what I needed last week – a quick, easy read, but I mean that in the best possible way. While it’s a novella, I found that the pacing and everything was done really well; I never felt like there was anything unnecessary taking up precious page space, I never felt like anything vital was being skipped in order to wrap everything up quickly, nor did I feel that things were being rushed along. It was just . . . well, perfection in that sense. J
Dylan’s trying to break away from his boy-next-door image from his years in a boy band. Trouble is, everyone still wants to see him as the innocent teen heartthrob, and his attempt at a solo album did not go well since everyone else was calling the shots – the production company, his agent, etc. – and not him. Now he has a second chance, just one though, to turn his image in the direction he wants, to share the music he writes, and not just follow the puppet masters that have been in charge of his career since he was a teen.
Enter Ariel, who’s in the middle of her own second chance at picking up the pieces of her career. Finally, someone who doesn’t just tell Dylan what to do, but actually asks for his opinion. The only problem is he’s also attracted to her – and has been since he glimpsed her at an event four years ago. Can he take control of his own career and find love?
This was a fun read. Dylan was adorable, and I loved watching him go after Ariel. There was a good deal of banter between them, not to mention chemistry.
A hot and fun read that’s quick, yes, but very enjoyable. I don’t think you’ll find anything lacking. I sure didn’t. There’s some drama that comes up towards the end, but otherwise it’s an easy ride to their HEA. I’m interested in the rest of the Riptide band members, so I’ll be back for the other books. Especially Jones, the drummer. I have a good feeling about his story since he was a very fun character.
