this way THIS novel made the top ten of most of those lists I spent most of my life thinking that all romance novels were a waste of my time and intellect, until I rediscovered romance about four years ago I discovered that romancecanbe well written AND highly enjoyable and entertaining.But this novel is an example of why I turned up my nose at the genre 25 years ago.Life is too short to waste on drivel I can see where this book is going from 1200 miles away Four friends are in a bar having a HILARIOUS good time OMG Men suck Yeah, men are so sucky What kind of man would you want if you could have THE PERFECT MAN OMG Don t talk like that You re insane No, really What s the perfect man No You re taking it too far Heheheheheheh Funny stuff Seriously Okay, he would definitely have to be faithful Seriously Really Well, if you think so Yeah, that s MOST important What about a sense of humor OMG You are SO right A sense of humor OMG that s funny Teehee He should be good looking Teehee He should be great in bed Teehee He should be rich Teehee He should be responsible DUDES This is all so original and FUNNY Seriously though He should have a ten inch penis Hmmmm..where does the story go.hmmmI already know this is a murder suspense romance The next door neighbor is a cop..hmmm..there is a serial killer and the title is Mr Perfect.hmmmm..nah, not predictable at all I really have no idea what could possibly happen next Oh, are the friends going to be murdered one by one By a serial killer that heard about their original requirements for a man Or something to that effect WHATEVER I seriously don t care.This is an example of severely dumbed down writing Romance readers are idiots, right Otherwise they would read serious literature instead of romance trash Obviously romance readers can t handle big words or nuanced narratives And of course, grammatical integrity, consistent voice and a plot that takesthought than a infant can muster would just be TOO MUCH for a romance reader to handle.EXCERPT Why on earth her mother had wanted her to baby sit the cat, instead of Shelley or Dave, was beyond her They both had kids who could play with BooBoo and keep him entertained Since school was out for summer vacation, that meant someone was home at both their houses almost all day, every day.But, nooo Jaine had to keep BooBoo Never mind that she was single, was at work five days a week, and wasn t used to having a pet If she did have a pet, it wouldn t be one like BooBook, anyway He d been in a feline pout ever since he d been neutered, and he took out his frustration on the furniture In just one week, he had frayed the sofa to the point that she would have to have it reupholstered.And BooBoo didn t like her He like her well enough when he was in his home, coming around to be petted, but he didn t like being in her home at all Every time she tried to pet him now, he arched his back and hissed at her.To top it off, Shelley was mad at her because Mom had chosen Jaine to baby sit her precious BooBoo After all, Shelley was the oldest, and obviouslysettled It didn t make sense that Jaine had been chosen over her Jaine agree with her, but that didn t soothe the hurt feelings.No, what really topped it off was that David, who was a year younger than Shelley, was mad at her too Not because of BooBoo David was allergic to cats, No, what had him steamed was that Dad had stored his precious car in her garage which meant she couldn t park in her own garage, since it was a single, and it was damned inconvenient She wished David had the blasted car She Wished Dad had left it in his own garage, but he d been afraid to leave it unattended for six weeks She understood that, but she didn t understand why she d been chosen to baby sit both cat and car Shelley didn t understand the cat, David didn t understand the car, and Jaine didn t understand any of it.You and me BOTH Jaine I don t understand the purpose of the entire passage Is this an obvious set up for future happenings in the plot The cat will be murdered and the car destroyed Is this a pathetic attempt at characterization Because now I hate Jaine and think she s a whiny baby I feel no accord with this character.Or was this merely an attempt to pad the word count It was all so stilted Unnecessary Like a conversation with someone who gives you way too many details about a story they re about to tell and you re just sitting there thinking Please get on with it For the love of God please 4.5 Stars If you re looking for Mr Perfect, you re going to spend your whole life being disappointed, because he doesn t existI generally hate books where any female or group of females start making a mental or physical list of what they want in a man Lists are absolutely stupid Love is unpredictable and shouldn t be put in a box Sure, six pack abs and a huge salary can be awesome, but the sweet guy with the messy hair and cute dimples might be the right one, even if he doesn t have gunIf you re looking for Mr Perfect, you re going to spend your whole life being disappointed, because he doesn t existI generally hate books where any female or group of females start making a mental or physical

hair and cute dimples might be the right one, even if he doesn t have guns of steel or a six figure income.Whoops Let me get off my soap box because this wasn t that type of book On the contrary, the list was supposed to be a fun game and nothing , which made me thankful that I wasn t going to have to hate the characters in this book for being ultra shallow Mr Perfect is a romantic suspense murder mystery book with a side of comedy Suspense is not my preferred genre, and cops are not my preferred type of hero, but Linda Howard surprised me by making both work in her favor because I ended up really liking this book It must have been that side of comedy which made the book feel like it wasn t as somber as it could have been Computer Nerd office signs for the win XEROX AND WURLITZER HAVE ANNOUNCED THEY WILL MERGE TO MARKET REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS.NEW PRESS RELEASE BY THE FDA RED MEAT IS NOT BAD FOR YOU RESULTS OF TESTS SHOW IT IS FUZZY GREEN MEAT THAT IS BAD FOR YOU.These signs sprinkled throughout the book, along with some of the fun banter, brought a great balance to the dark subject matter.After all, there was still a killer on the loose, terrorizing the four women who started the list Looks like someone didn t feel perfect enough to make the listWhich one are you whispered a ghostly voice I mentioned the cop hero Sam was great Who knew I just needed the right author to come along and make me fall for a cop He might have been a little too gruff at times and made a few off remarks yes, he called his ex wife a bitch which you might not see in arecent novel, but when he needed to be, he was sweet and protective.There were a couple of little pokes at feminism which were odd, but I sort of rolled right over them because I wasn t seeing any big malice showing through In fact, I didn t have much to complain about when it came to Mr Perfect Between the mystery, the romance, and the comedy, I got enough to keep me entertained on a lazy night If I had to come up with one complaint it would have to be hidden behind a spoiler tag, so only look if you don t mind being spoiled view spoiler A marriage proposal and declarations of love during sex Really hide spoiler I ll definitely pick up another Linda Howard book again in the future, if only to get my fix of random wacky lines such asThen I got inside you and it was like sticking my cock in an electrical outlet 5

could count and it never fails to make me laugh, cry and swoon This book is what made me a fan of Linda Howard s writing This was Linda Howard at her peak writing form witty, fun, hilarious and terrifying at the same time Mr Perfect is a story about four friends and their idea of Mr Perfect The fours friends understood, of course, that Mr Perfect doesn t really exist in real life but that didn t stop them from making the Mr Perfect list It was supposed to stay between them but one thing led to another and suddenly, the ladies find themselves as the newest national sensation Worst of all, they also attracted the attention of a very disturb and sinister mind who will stop at nothing to hurt them As to who and why he d want to hurt them, well, I say, you must read the book because I m not spoiling anything D Why I love this book We re all familiar with that book where the heroine meets the hero and it was viola Instant attraction, lust and even love at first sight And then we get a heroine who keeps saying in her head, He s so gorgeous, or he s the most beautiful man I ve ever met, or he s perfect I wanna devour him That plus the gushing and clenching their girly parts This book doesn t have that You d get the exact opposite First of all, Jaine that s our female MC thinks that Sam our male MC is foul tempered drunk and a world class jerk No ifs and buts about it She wasn t a bit attracted to him In fact she contemplated on boiling her fingers because it touched him DAll she knew was that he was a rough looking character, and he didn t seem to hold down a regular job At best, he was a drunk, and drunks could be mean and destructive At worst, he was involved in illegal stuff, which added dangerous to the list He was a big, muscular guy, with dark hair cut so short he almost looked like a skinhead Every time she had seen him, he looked as if he hadn t shaved in two or three days Add that to the bloodshot eyes and bad temper, and she came up with drunkIt was downright hilarious the moment they officially met too And boy, was Jaine ever wrong about her first impression of the guyI haven t had any sleep, any breakfast, or any coffee I d better leave before I hurt you He nodded That s a good idea I d hate to have to arrest you She stared at him, taken aback What I m a cop, he said, then turned and walked back into his house Jaine stared after him, shocked A cop Well, fuck, she said See, what I mean That was just refreshing to me I always find it fascinating when a romance author tries to subvert a well known trope, in this case the insta attraction or insta lust trope, and give us something different.Of course, this dislike turned into something a lotpleasant when Jaine saw Sam in his birthday suit outside her kitchen window Jaine s inner monologue in that one was seriously funny and seriously hot I swear reading that part made me wish, I had a hunky neighbor I could perv on LH described Sam s nakedness and Jaine s reaction to it in way that make you laugh and turn you on at the same timeWhat then happened wasn t her fault She was standing at the sink rinsing out her cup when the kitchen light in the house across the way flicked on and Sam walked into view She stopped breathing Her lungs seized, and she stopped breathing Sweet baby Jesus, she croaked, and managed to inhale.She was seeingof Sam than she had ever thought she would everything, in fact He stood in front of the refrigerator, stark naked She barely had time to admire his buns before he took a bottle of orange juice from the fridge, twisting off the top and tilting it to his mouth as he turned around She forgot all about his buns He wasimpressive coming no pun intended than he was going, and that was saying something, because his butt was severely cute The man was hung In spite of that encounter, they didn t immediately jump into bed and have sex They had to work out some issues first, plus the fact there was a killer on the loose after Jaine and her friends But when they did YOWZA LH writes some of the best love scenes around She s not overly descriptive There s almost like a brusque quality to the way she writes these scenes that does something your imagination And for someone with a very active imagination like moi, this was just perfect for me.Sam Donovan, or as Jaine referred to him as the jerk, was a wonderfully swoony character He is alpha without being too over the top and the jerk is funny He can totally match Jaine in the wit department Plus, he ain t that bad looking either Oh, who am I kidding Sam is gorgeous in a totally manly way and most of all, he s got the right equipmentI tracked it down on the Web It was funny stuff Ms C She gaped at him How did you know she demanded He snorted Like I wouldn t recognize your smart ass mouth even in print Anything over eight is strictly for show and tell , he quoted at her I might have known you d remember only the sex stuff Sex is much on my mind these days And just for the record I don t have anything for show and tell If he didn t, he hadn t missed it by much, Jaine thought, remembering with great fondness how he had looked in profile He continued, I m just happy I m not in the point and laugh category The story was seamlessly told in multiple POVs, with Jaine having the most of them We also get to be inside the mind of the killer and let me tell you, it was creepy as hell and very disturbing I have to warn you though, there is much sadness that happened in this book I won t elaborate anythingthan that but this book isn t all hearts and rainbows But it does have an HEA.Overall, very solid and pretty much unforgettable story from Linda Howard Definitely worth the five stars What do you get when four friends get together for their weekly girls night out and have a little too much to drink Well, in this story, you get a list detailing what these friends think it takes to make the perfect man And what do you get when that list becomes an overnight sensation with a nearly cult like following Well, in this story, you get murder I ve had this book on my shelves for quite awhile and whenever my Goodreads friends would talk

murder I ve had this book on my shelves for quite awhile and whenever my Goodreads friends would talk about Linda Howard s books, Mr Perfect was sure to be listed as one of her very best, and almost always a favorite So why did I put off reading this book, you ask Because I thought the cover was ugly And let me just tell you now, it s true what they say you should never judge a book by its cover Mr Perfectwas a fun, fast paced, sexy read and once I got started I just couldn t put it down And while the idea that such a list could become so insanely popular and cause such havoc is a bit on the farfetched side, the story was written in such a way that made it believable, and the characters were written just as well Jaine Bright and Sam Donovan were both so perfect, and yet so flawed that they felt like real people to me, not just words and images bunched together to give us characters to read about, but honest to goodness real people Their banter was laugh out loud funny and their sexual chemistry burned up the pages.I also loved the secondary characters who filled out the group of friends, four ladies working for the same company yet in different departments Their love for each other was so apparent, and it made me think of a couple of my own closest friends I could easily see us all sitting down and getting carried away, laughing and just having a great time creating our ideal man, our own Mr Perfect The bottom line This was my first Linda Howard read and before I was even 1 3 of the way through I was orderingof her books It was fun, exciting and very sexy, so needless to say, I really enjoyed Mr Perfect and I m looking forward to readingby this author 4.5 5.0 This is an old book but I see that most of her books have now been released on Kindle Lucky Me Not So Lucky my Credit Card I have read a few of Linda s other books and loved them This was a great story with a spunky, sassy heroine and a gorgeous hero wouldn t mind a bit of Sam living next door to me Sad, funny, mysterious it had it all hopefully the kindle edition will bring a new realm of readers to discover Ms Howard. This book was very funny and a good romantic suspense The interaction between Jaine and Sam was hilarious She is a bit of a spit fire and he has a bit of a temper I love the part where she sprays him with the hose then he hold her against her car She tells him he is holding her against her will but he says he isn t, he is holding her against her car The diagolue was great and the suspense portion was good This is a great read if you enjoy a laugh, good romance and a bit of suspense THERE ARE MULTIPLE REASONS WHY I LOVE THIS BOOK.A THE BANTERB THE CHEMISTRYI can t count any how often this book made me laugh out loud The dialogues between Sam and Jaine are on point, funny, sexy, hilarious Janie is such a straightforward kind of person, she attacks life with gusto, and tenacity She is not afraid of anything, and it shows Sam, the poor guy, should be afraid, but he is the opposite, he loves everything about Jaine He is confident, unfazed, and perfectly equipped to THERE ARE MULTIPLE REASONS WHY I LOVE THIS BOOK.A THE BANTERB THE CHEMISTRYI can t count any how often this book made me laugh out loud The dialogues between Sam and Jaine are on point, funny, sexy, hilarious Janie is such a straightforward kind of person, she attacks life with gusto, and tenacity She is not afraid of anything, and it shows Sam, the poor guy, should be afraid, but he is the opposite, he loves everything about Jaine He is confident, unfazed, and perfectly equipped to handle a strong willed woman like Jaine, and it shows in many ways throughout the novel And he is never in danger of losing sight of what s important, and the way he takes care of Jaine is still my favorite part of the book.Together they were explosive And I had a first row seat, enjoying it all.Also their easy way with each other, their no nonsense approach to a future relationship was refreshing, and so Linda Howard Now, reading this book in 2019, I realize that there is a hefty dose of insta marriage in this book I m trying to remember if this was the norm in 2000 I m not usually a fan of insta anything, but the overall feel of this novel is still the same as it was when I read it the first time.The suspense is through the roof, and I m actually shocked every time about the author not pulling any punches There is quite the body count in this novel I feel like this rarely happens in romantic suspense novels any And it surprises me every time I read it.So, if you love romantic suspense you MUST read Linda Howard s books, but especially this one.Findreviews and book recommendations on my blogFollow me on Bookstagram 4.5 a re read not as good the second time around I sort of knew the wow factor so that took away from it I think I might have already reviewed another version so apologies if there are two reviews on here Well, I did read it twice so maybe that s OK I love both main characters Knew what they wanted each other Sam sure is sexy.Jaine is a great heroine Has a temper, has a backbone, has a sense of humour If you re looking for Mr Perfect, you re going to spend your whole life b 4.5 a re read not as good the second time around I sort of knew the wow factor so that took away from it I think I might have already reviewed another version so apologies if there are two reviews on here Well, I did read it twice so maybe that s OK I love both main characters Knew what they wanted each other Sam sure is sexy.Jaine is a great heroine Has a temper, has a backbone, has a sense of humour If you re looking for Mr Perfect, you re going to spend your whole life being disappointed, because he doesn t exist You have to get the best deal you can, but there will always be problems And that is where all the trouble started With the List I told you, we haven t had sex It was just a kiss Like the Viper was just a car, and Mount Everest was just a hill
