RELEASE DATE: September 14, 2015
AUTHOR: Kendra C. Highley
GENRE: Young-Adult,  Contemporary,  Romance.      
PUBLISHER: Entangled Crush
SUMMARY: How far will you go for perfection?

For “Perfect Paige” Westfield, today is “D” Day. As in, she just got one on her calculus test. With her dreams of Stanford, her reputation, and her parents’ expectations at stake, Paige needs to find a way to save face before everything she’s worked for goes up in flames.

Ben Franklin (yes, he’s related) is from the wrong side of town, with the wrong clothes and the wrong kind of life. He also knows an opportunity when he sees one, and he’ll be happy to tutor Paige—if she makes him into the kind of guy her best friend, the hottest girl in school, will date.

It’s the perfect arrangement. And Paige is determined not even the inconvenient—and utterly imperfect—attraction simmering between her and Ben will ruin it…

I love reading Entangled Crush’s Teen Contemporary romance novels and Finding Perfect is another book that I’ve been looking forward to. Honestly, I liked the book but I can’t say that I love it as much as others did. Finding Perfect is an adorable read and very entertaining but it wasn’t outstanding. My only issue with this book is the storyline which is too predictable and we can easily figure out almost all of the story. However, it was  fun to read and I think many people would definitely enjoy reading it.

Paige Westfield is the popular girl in her high school and also the best friend to Zoey who is the hottest girl in her school. Perfect Paige is perfect in everything except for calculus in which she recently scored D that will definitely destroy her future dreams for applying to Stanford. Her parent’s are pretty much over protective who already made her future plans and she didn’t want to disappoint them. During her break-out session, she has an embarrassing moment when she tripped and fell flat on her stomach which was witnessed by a nerd boy who is passing by. He seems to be genuinely concerned about her well-being and surprisingly he is quite genius in Calculus. Understanding her situation, he makes a deal to help her out by being her tutor but in return she had to help him out with her best friend Zoey by turning him into someone that appeals her. Paige was reluctant at first but finally she gives in cause she had no other choice left.

Paige is pretty much likable character we can relate to. Even though she is from a rich family she is very sweet and friendly towards Ben who is from the opposite side. Ben is kinda ok character but he wasn’t much impressive. Like every boy in school he drools after Zoey but when he comes to know more about Paige he starts to get attracted towards her and finally learns that love is not all about looks. The chemistry between them is adorable and sweet and completely YA rated. It was so cute how he used his mom’s chocolate chip cookies as a gift.

As I already said the storyline was too predictable which is the major downfall for me cause I love elements of surprise in a book because without them it wouldn’t be an engaging read but still the story wasn’t that bad because it did made me read it till the end. The first part of the book was about how Paige and Ben slowly grows to like each other and finally confess their feelings towards each other. The second part is about convincing Paige’s parents to accept their relationship and also some family drama regarding her future. The main characters are quite good but not that great. As for the supporting characters, I really liked Zoey, Ben’s Mom and also Paige’s dad. The book not only deals with romantic relationships but also family relationships. The pacing of the story is slow but don’t worry it wasn’t that boring. It’s the first book I’ve read from the author and the writing of it is quite good and solid. I really liked the character development of Paige at the end who finally becomes an independent woman who makes her own choices.

Overall, I liked the book! If you haven’t got any problem with predictable storylines and clichéd romance then you’ll definitely enjoy reading this. I would recommend this book to all the readers who loves reading cute contemporary romance.

MY RATING: 4-stars14-stars14-stars1 4-stars1[3.5/5 Stars]

    Sorry to hear that the predictability of the plot weighs the story down, but I am glad you still found things to enjoy in it! I actually find that I love reading predictable stories when I am in a blogging slump haha.
