Picturing Perfect (Love of My Life) by Melissa Brown

Life may not turn out like we planned, but sometimes that’s what makes it perfect…

Hadley Foster has always been a planner. But, since the age of nineteen, things haven’t exactly gone according to plan… not at all. And the changes continue to mount when a trip to Europe with her best friend starts a domino effect in all aspects of her life. Suddenly, the future she had envisioned for herself seems unlikely to happen. It’s time to make a new plan… or accept the dominoes as they fall.

Jason Kelly has a great life. He’s a successful self-published writer who’s living his dreams. But, something is missing. Hadley Foster. Letting her slip through his fingers is one of his biggest regrets. Over time, he had to accept the idea of being without his first love as he watched her fall in love with someone else.

When circumstances bring Jason and Hadley back into one another’s lives, they’re forced to deal with their past, their present and the possibility of a future together.

**Note from the author: You do not need to read either Bouquet Toss or Champagne Toast to follow this story. It is a stand-alone book that connects to Champagne Toast. **

First line: 
I had a plan.
I knew exactly how my future would be.

4 stars out of 5
This book is so sweet! Hadley knows what she wants in life. But fate intervened and threw her off track. And that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. She's working a job she loves, she's with the love of her life, and their about to start a family. So what if it's earlier than she planned? But Tucker explodes when he learns of the pregnancy.

Jason is simply amazing! He loves Hadley, even though she's pregnant with another man's baby. He's there when Hadley needs somebody. Because not only struggling with her pregnancy, she's also dealing with her boyfriend leaving her and her mother checking out after her father's death.

Tucker is a jerk.  I really, really want to slap him. Everything is Hadley's fault according to him. And when he finds out she's pregnant, he abandons her. He also lies to everybody around him about the pregnancy.

Picturing Perfect is a quick and sweet romance read. I really want to read Champagne Toast now!
