If you had asked me....
Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines
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?
Rate & take
Heat Index 1 ☼
If someone would have asked me (anytime during my reading of the first two-thirds of this book) what I thought my rating was going to be, I would have said it was a solid three. But it's what happened late in the game that really changed it all for me....it was one of those 'I-did-not-see-that-one-coming' moments and really brought the story to a new level and I knew then it sure was worth the rating of four.
I have read several of Abbi Glines books and I've never been disappointed by the way she crafts a story and weaves in the emotional tones that often times just tug the heck out of my girlie side. And she is great for a plot twist or two as well. I hope she keeps writing for a very long time to come!!!
