review: A Perfect Mess by Zoe Dawson

A Perfect Mess (A Perfect Secret  Series, #1)A Perfect Mess by Zoe Dawson
4.5 of 5 stars

I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

My Thoughts -

This story is non-stop from start to finish. It's got it all, stalkers, hot brothers and family secrets. Did I mention the hot brothers part?

Aubree really goes through a shit storm in this story. I don't know she did it. Maybe she didn't handle things correctly at times, but she got through it all - just barely. Thank goodness for Booker - really. He really is her rescuer. I was totally envious of Aubree. Booker was awesome - I'd let him make me dinner anytime. Seriously, anytime. The pair had great chemistry right off the bat so when they finally get together, they're incredible.

When major communication happens and we find out the whole "bleacher" story and what really happened last summer, the baddie at the end is kind of a given. I still totally loved this story though. It was easy to rad, fast paced and wicked smokin' hot. I look forward to reading about River Pearl and Verity in the future. Great job!!
