Lynda Reviews Mr Perfect by J.A. Huss
Book #1 of the Mister series
Wanting the perfect man doesn’t make me crazy. I just know what I like.
A powerful billionaire in a suit wasn’t even my first choice. Mcallister Stonewall was never on my radar, I didn’t even know he existed.
But I do now.
His hands are all over me at work. The heat of his chest pressing against my bare back as he bends me over the desk is the only thing on my mind.
He is my most forbidden desires unleashed. He is my new secret obsession. He is my Mr. Perfect.
Until the moment I realize… There’s no such thing as perfect.
My first impression of Ellie is a needy obsessive delusional lost woman with a side of kink. But first impressions aren’t always correct.
Ellie just likes to make people happy and has her own dreams but needs to flourish in her own life.
Mac is a seemingly lonely fun cocky bossy jerk who does whatever he can to get in to Ellie’s pants. But he’s also mysterious.
“There’s just something strange about a man from a famous family not having an online presence. Something strange. Like he’s hiding.”
This Story has a fantasy element surrounding it with the description of campus. It’s like a whole different world. Hi profile celebrities, glass elevators and buildings, luxury jets and other things you will be wowed about. But the story is so much more, more complex.
The need to know the answers to all the questions running through my head was frantic. I won’t mention those questions because I don’t want to give anything away. It’s like a wild goose chase for information, the little “Stavanger hunt” doesn’t help either.
While the way Ellie and Mac first come together is a bit cringe worthy, its actually a strike against Mac and Ellie for me. Its a bit to “easy” for Ellie and a bit to “piggish” of Mac but it centres from something. Otherwise the chemistry between these 2 characters is potent all consuming lust. Normally when characters start off like that I don’t find their characters or relationship all that appealing, but these two both grow and learn in their relationship and life, they do develop past pure carnal lust.
The secondary characters aren’t really memorable, but I don’t think they’re meant to be. The “Mr” names are dropped here and there and are shrouded in mystery. This seems a calculated move by Huss, keep us wanting more of the Mr series, And upon learning some facts about the Mr “troupe” anticipation for Mr Romantic skyrocketed, which by the way is up for preorder on Amazon.
“I click through more pictures and see them all. Mr. Perfect, Mr. Romantic, Mr. Corporate, Mr. Mysterious, and Mr. Match. They’re all well-bred children from well-connected families who are rich beyond belief.”
While there have been some of J A Huss’s stories that haven’t totally captivated me, everything she writes is unique and well written. Always makes for an intriguing story.
