The tale of a perfect Prince Charming has been told to girls for centuries, and we all have our own ideas of perfection. Author Rebecca Heflin has created a world where perfection is not always what it seems. Our heroine, Darcy Butler, is a romance novelist who keeps measuring her dates up to her fictional heroes. She’s feisty and dynamic, and thoroughly entertaining. I found the story to move fast, but not too fast. I adored this novel, and will be looking for more from Ms. Heflin. She really knows how to tell a tale!
How long does a girl have to search for her Prince Charming? This is precisely the question that our heroine, Darcy Butler, keeps asking herself. After a series of horrendous first dates, she’s all but given up in men, choosing to hang out with her best friend in the world, Josh Ryan. Darcy is as happy as she can be, single and lonely; Josh is happy but frustrated. He’s been in love with Darcy since the beginning of time, but she’s oblivious! And when the living embodiment of Darcy’s latest hero (she’s a romance novelist) appears, all bets are off as to whether she will ever realize that Josh is her true match. Darcy’s had perfection, but can she listen to her heart and come to her senses before it’s too late, and Josh is gone forever?
What if perfection isn’t truly perfect?
Best-selling romance writer, Darcy Butler, is holding out for perfection in the form of her own carefully-crafted heroes. Once blissfully engaged to be married, Darcy’s post-traumatic commitment phobia is depriving her of the very thing she wants most: her very own happily-ever-after. Now, here she is just six months shy of her thirtieth birthday, and not a Prince Charming in sight.
Successful lawyer, Josh Ryan, is the boy-next-door with a soft spot for the less fortunate, and Darcy’s best friend without benefits. Darcy often comes to him lamenting her love-life, or the lack thereof, whereupon Josh patiently doles out his sage advice. Problem is Josh is in love with Darcy.
But when Darcy finds herself looking into the handsome face of the man who graces the cover of her soon-to-be-released novel, she’s convinced her dreams of perfection have come true. Or have they?
