Book Review: Present Perfect

Present Perfect by Alison G. Bailey: Amanda Kelly spent her entire life trying to control every aspect of it, while striving for perfection. Her obsession with being perfect, along with her feelings of worthlessness, consumed her. The one thing she thought was perfect in her life was the bond she shared with her best friend, Noah.
Everything was going according to her life plan until she woke up one day and realized she had fallen in love with him. The one thing she couldn't control was the affect he had on her. Noah had the power to give her one hundred lifetimes of happiness, which also gave him the power to completely devastate her. He was the one thing in her life that was perfect, but she couldn't allow herself to have him.

Her life begins to unravel. Events take over and force her to let go of her dreams and desires. She needs to realize that a person cannot control the events in their life, only their reaction to them...but will it be too late for her to save her relationship with her best friend? Present Perfect is a story of how past events have present consequences and how perfect your present could be if you stopped fighting and just allowed it to happen.

TeriLyn's thoughts: The heroine in this story drove me absolutely crazy. Back and forth about her feelings, never letting Noah in completely but never completely letting him go. Amanda was a selfish girl then a selfish woman and I never felt a strong connection to her even towards the end when the book got better for me. I never feel like she totally redeems herself. The events that start to make Amanda realize what she has forfeited in her life I have a very strong connection to but she still seemed so selfish to me even years later. Noah was perfect through the entire story. He wore his heart on his sleeve for her. The pushing and pulling of this just didn't work for me. The last several chapters were better for me with the direction they headed but it was a struggle getting there. I rate three stars over two because it was very well written and the ending was good.
