"Seeking Perfect" is a book that nearly destroyed me. Jesse goes through so much in her life and it hurt my heart when she was naturally suspicious of Derek wanting to be friends with her. Her home life isn't perfect by any means but I’m glad she has people looking out for her. She’s very self-sufficient, she has a job and hates hospitals. She depends on no one but herself and it’s hard to ask for help when she needs it.
Derek just wants to get to know Jesse. He sees her alone and by herself more often than not and just wants to be a part of her life. Even though he could never understand what she deals with. He’s got a nice home and great parents. It will take a lot to get Jesse to trust him and believe that love does exists.
I loved reading "Seeking Perfect". Jeri di d a good job portraying each character. This book is full of emotions and will have you feeling so many things. I recommend this great read.
Jesse learned early not to trust a soul, but what if he was her soulmate?
Senior year of high school should be about friendship, boyfriends, and graduation, but for seventeen-year-old Jesse Barnes it’s about escaping the shame of life with an alcoholic mother.
Jesse’s goals are clear: keep a roof over her head, avoid the revolving door of leering men her mother brings home, graduate from high school, and do everything possible to keep her home life secret. Friends, boyfriends: not an option. Who would understand?
Then perfect, popular Derek Aames sits with Jesse at lunch. How can she discourage him? How can she keep him from intruding on her life and discovering her secret? And most of all, how can she keep him out of her heart?
Will his persistence finally break down her walls, or just break her?
