I am the quintessential island girl. I grew up in Saint Ann on Jamaica's idyllic North Coast, running around in the sun, splashing barefooted in puddles, and enjoying a good book under a tree while eating some sort of unripe fruit or another. I graduated twice from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica's (and the Caribbean's) premiere institution of higher learning: first with a BSc in Management and Economics and then with an MBA in Banking and Finance. I currently live in Paris, France, where I spend my days drinking in a good book, writing fiction, exploring, and dreaming of the Jamaican sunshine.
Bright, charming and insanely beautiful, Samantha Persaud is in an enviable position. She is the first-born golden child of Kingston's most illustrious Economist, Andrew Persaud and his fashion designer wife, Janise, the granddaughter to magnates, Ravi and Sylvia Persaud. In her own organized, perfectionist manner, the twenty-one year old Sam is well on her way to achieving all the goals she had set for herself when she was just a little girl. And, as icing on the cake, she has the world's most perfect boyfriend -- kind, sweet, considerate Micah, who is hopelessly devoted to her. But, one five-minute conversation all but ruins her perfect world. The well-ordered train of events that was her life has suddenly been derailed, and for the first time, the girl who had always been in total control of her destiny, realizes that she cannot even control her emotions. What is the perfect girl to do when she realizes that life is not "just perfect" after all? Just Perfect! is the second title in the Persaud Girl series created by Teisha Mott. Other titles in the series are The Bet, On Time and For Keeps.
