REVIEW: “Perfect Imperfections” by Cardeno C.


Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle of nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can’t say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.

Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there’s nothing pretend about their relationship.



I’m not usually one to go for books with musician MCs, so I’m super glad I gave this story a try!  And with apologies to my actual husband, I wish Reg Moore was my man. ;)

Rock star Jeremy Jameson has been in the limelight his entire life, and he’s looking for a simple, relaxing night when he stumbles into a dive bar in BFE, Arizona and meets Reg. Reg is muscled, tatted, growly, touchy-feely sex on two feet. He’s also the most laid back fictional guy you’ll ever meet. Who says no to all that? (Apparently not me, bonafide Cardeno-C. fan for life.)

But listen, the guys bond and form a friendship. Next thing you know, they’re planning a road trip together for Jeremy’s next tour, with Reg (who’s gay) pretending to be Jeremy’s boyfriend, even though Jeremy is…wait for it…you know what’s coming…STRAIGHT.

The nice thing about Perfect Imperfections is that it’s an easy book to read and love because the author really gives you a chance to get to know the characters and what they’re all about before the guys fall into bed together. Jeremy has his ticks—he’s hotheaded and bratty and prone to tantrums. Reg balances him out with his calm, no-nonsense, take-charge approach (plus all that touching and hair stroking and petting, GAH!). Come to momma, Reg. Oh, and that falling into bed part I mentioned? This is Cardeno C. we’re talking about: it’s hot. Smoking hot. Call the fire department hot.

Why should you read this book? Because it’s relaxing and it’ll make you feel happy and take you away from it all. I especially recommend it after you’ve read something heavy and serious; Reg and Jeremy will take your mind off things and pull you into their world and before you know what happened, you’ll be reading the last pages of their story and wishing for more.

      Cardeno C. is like chicken soup for the m/m reader’s soul, I’m starting to think, right? Glad you had a chance to re-read, and thanks for the kind words! :)
