Dreams of Perfection

Dreams of Perfection by Rebecca Heflin

Contemporary, Romance

Darcy Butler is a best-selling romance author that is holding out for the perfect man like the heroes that are in her books.  Darcy was once engages but now she is now is dealing with a commitment phobia after the traumatic ending of her engagement.  It is also getting in the way of the one thing she wants most her own happily-ever-after.  Now she is six months away from her thirtieth birthday and doesn’t have a Prince Charming. 

Josh Ryan is a successful lawyer with a soft spot for the less fortunate.  He is also Darcy’s best friend without the benefits.  Darcy goes to Josh lamenting her love-life or lack thereof and Josh is there for her and doling out his sage advice.  The only problem is that Josh is in love with Darcy. 

Now Darcy thinks she has finally found her perfect hero when she meets a man that has the handsome face of the hero in her latest book that is soon-to-be released.  She is convinced her dreams of perfection have come true.  Or have they?

This is a fun friends to lover story with well developed characters.  The humor help the story move along well.  While some readers will wish for things to move a little faster between Josh and Darcy it is still a good story.  The characters are very relatable and down to earth.  There are some slow areas but nothing that truly bogs down the story. It is also the start of series that should prove to be interesting and will hopefully give readers a chance to revisit the characters from the other books. 

I give this one 4 red roses
