Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.
what’s easier than I ever imagined?
I enjoyed this book so much! After reading Little Miss Perfect I HAD to know how the story of Will and Mallory went!!!! I loved their “mis-connection” in high school and it left me with soooo many questions!!!
Mallory is so much like me it’s scary! We are both way naive, smart, work in interior design and are plus size. Her little mishap in the beginning made me laugh sooo hard because I had NO CLUE what a fluffer was! I adored her character so much because we are similar, but I think that Julia wrote her character so that you couldn’t help but fall in love with her. She is such a smart person, she’s funny without meaning to be and she’s so straight forward. She’s such an amazing lead female!!! Bringing Will back in the picture was equally entertaining with how he was brought in. I loved that she fell over her own feet because of him. Having a female lead who is not perfect is my favorite! Mallory and Will have the most amazing second chance romance, even if they didn’t realize it was “second chance.” I also loved how Mallory was so afraid to get hurt, but everything in her life was pointing her back at Will.
Now Will, I was pretty mad at him in Little Miss Perfect, because he didn’t strike when he could have and he didn’t really try hard to fix it. I was SUPER excited to see him redeem himself though!!! I loved his character in this. Between him being funny, trying to help Mallory and trying to woo her at the same time, he was pretty darn perfect. He was so determined to win her over and make her see herself as she really is, that you couldn’t help but fall in love with him too! Then we have the parents trying to do things on the sly, the dancing fiasco and so many other moments. It was just really funny to watch these two! Speaking of funny, holy crap was this book funny! I was laughing from beginning to end!!
And of course we have to talk about the secondary characters. Fiona and Perky WERE PERFECT!! These two were the best friends a girl could ask for! Their characters were the best with their support and their comedy. Add in all of this to a high school reunion, MAGIC! All of the pieces to this beautiful puzzle were complete because of them.
I can’t wait to see what Julia has lined up next with Perky!

and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in

writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult
rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she
writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for
a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a
men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire). She lives in New England with
her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever,
