Ethan Hendrix has lived in this town forever never wanting to leave. One person almost made him leave but instead she left with his heart. Liz Sutton has always been in his mind and now he is shocked. The woman he has always loved held a big secret from him, a secret that he is still trying to come to grips with. She says she tried to tell him the truth many times but how can he believe the town tramp. He knows it is wrong but maybe all those things they said about her are true? For years he has followed her career and knows in some way she might still love him. Seeing her again though makes him wonder what would have happened if she never left to be a success. As a developer he has reputation to maintain yet just being near Liz he loses control. He always thought he had strong willpower yet one kiss from Liz brings back all the passion he thought was forgotten. Can he convince Liz that life in a small town is so much better with a man that loves her deeply and truly?
Almost Perfect by Susan Mallery is definitely enjoyable and unforgettable. I loved that she created this story line in a unique way you don’t see very often. Liz already knew she found her man but like many young teenagers he ruins it stupidly. What I loved the most about Almost Perfect was that it wasn’t just Ethan and Liz but the whole town was in the book. I laughed so much. Now Liz is definitely a woman who has a lot of questions that all lead to Ethan but she is determined to not let him into her heart. Each character was great and there was so much going on. Susan made it all very enjoyable and you won't get board with this one. I loved it.
