an interesting job, she one of the screening nurses at a sperm
bank. She also comes from a well to do Boston family, and has
a few prejudices due to this. Her social life is at a stand
still, she has a steadfast rule, if you stand me up and don’t
call you are done. It is a one strike you're out rule.
Unfortunately this seems to be eliminating eligible men
quickly; though she seems to be doing all her dating with men
she meets at the sperm bank. Things are about to change is
what the tea leaf reader tells her, when her best friend makes
her attend a reading one lunch hour. She also tells her she
might need to change her definition of the perfect man.
“Crusher” owns a demolition company who blasts the building
next to the sperm bank. When Natalie comes rushing out and
reads him the riot act he is intrigued with her. She on the
other hand writes him off as a lug head with none of the
attributes that she wants in a man. Shane doesn’t take no for
an answer and pursues her on a date. Natalie is stunned to
find out how deeply she is attracted to him, but will he
measure up to her definition of a perfect man? Or will she
adjust her definition to meet Shane’s qualities?
Demolishing Mr. Perfect was a fast paced contemporary
romance. I found that I was cheering on Shane and was annoyed
with the ‘prissiness’ of Natalie. I continued to become more
enthralled in the story with each chapter, hoping to see Shane
put Natalie in her place. I won’t reveal whether he was
completely successful or not. I feel the book is well worth
the read for those of you who wish to find out. Ms. Chase
does a good job creating real characters and settings.
Demolishing Mr. Perfect was a fun light read.
