A Perfect Mess Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

A Perfect Mess (A Perfect Series #1)
I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

3 stars out of 5
A Perfect Mess had an excellent plot line with some hidden meanings that actually made me think. The story begins with Aubree's recurring chicken dream. It is never stated what the interpretation of the dream was, but I was thinking about it the whole book and I just loved being able to do that and put my own meaning in the dream. The plot was also suspenseful, leaving e wondering what had happened on Wild Magnolia Road.

What I did not like about the novel was the characters. I felt like Aubree and Booker were always crying. I could kinda deal with that if it was just Aubree, but I felt like Booker was crying more than Aubree was. He would tear up at stupid things. I was just disappointed when I was reading his POV.

The setting is fairly vivid and Dawson's use of colloquials in her writing was good. I could almost hear them talking based on the way the words were written!

I am looking forward to reading about the rest of the unholy trinity (as Booker and his two brothers [their triplets] are called) and the imperfect trinity (as I have taken to thinking about Aubree and her two best friends) in the two upcoming sequels!
