This was another guilty pleasure type of read where you have to just have to pick up and dive right in. For those of you, like me, who are familiar with author Cory Cyr's books, The Perfect 1 follows her usual older gal meets younger guy recipe. It's like the writers lives out her fantasies through her female heroines! lol. Nah, nah. I was just kidding.
Anyway, as for the story, it had a different feel. It felt a bit more angsty.
Both main leads have had it hard and we see them deal with it in their different ways of coping. Jensyn, our female lead, was more of a hard pill to take. Not going to lie. After a tragic accident leaves her life in tatters, she is a shell of person and a sour one at that.
And Lincoln. While, I felt Jensyn's fate was more superficial, albeit still horrendously traumatic-- Lincoln's demons stem from losing his eyesight. I mean, how would you deal with going about everyday, living your life and writing books for a living, and baam! You end up losing your vision. I can't even.
While completely different situations, I felt Jensyn and Lincoln were just meant to have been together and this twisted version of fate. It's like no matter how messed up things can get, sometimes it just leads you on where you need to be.
Anyway, a good read.
