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.
When 31 year old Rock superstar Jeremy Jameson steps into a seedy bar in Munds Park, Arizona it turns out to be the best thing to ever happen to him.
Jeremy is not your typical “rock star”…there’s no drugs, or scores of sexual exploits, or crazy publicity antics…he’s quiet, a bit shy, and, most of all, lonely. When he starts up a conversation with bartender, Reggie Moore, he finds himself relaxed and engaged and having a great time. After closing down the bar, ending up on Reg’s couch for the night, and a few more drinks an idea takes root: Reg would love to travel more and Jeremy is sick of going out on the road alone, or with women who don’t understand it’s not all premieres and glitzy events…so Jeremy offers Reg the opportunity to become Jeremy’s pretend boyfriend for seven months of travel, companionship, and adventure while Jeremy plays his latest world tour dates.
Reg isn’t your typical bartender, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a degree in Accounting, but since an office job was killing him, he returned home to work and save enough money to go travel the world. Reg understands that Jeremy doesn’t want a real boyfriend, but a friend, someone to spend with who wouldn’t have ulterior motives or make constant demands. The offer is amazing but Reg makes two requests: ask again once Jeremy sobers up and to give him a year instead of seven months.
It was sad that he felt he had to essentially hire that function out, but Reg wouldn’t complain. Jeremy was cool, his music was amazing, and touring the world would be a dream come true. “I hope so, man,” he said. “That’d be awesome.”
“It would.” Jeremy nodded. “No more lonely nights. No more boring flights with nobody to talk to. No more girls who say they want to be with me when they don’t even like me, and all they really want is a leg up.” He sighed. “No more.”
This story is hands down one of my favorite books of all time. I played a game with a friend where I was asked to name three books I would want with me if I was stranded on a deserted island, and Perfect Imperfections easily made the list. Why? Because, to me, it’s perfect. There’s no angst, no miscommunication, tons of humor, and hot sexy times. It’s fluffy crack.
For me the only thing that was missing was an audio version.
If you asked me for a list of my favorite narrators you would absolutely find Charlie David on that list…so finding out he was doing to the narration for one of my favorite books?
I hoped the narration would live up to the love I had for the book and wasn’t surprised when Charlie David gives another absolutely wonderful performance! The characters, the humor, the sexiness – it all comes through perfectly.
You want to know how I know this audio is fantastic? I immediately replayed the audio as soon as it finished the first time.
The story is absolute fluff-tastic sweetness and cuteness, and when coupled with Charlie David’s phenomenal performance, it’s absolutely unforgettable. Perfect Imperfections…I love you!!
