    For Ceejay Lovejoy, life in Perfect, Indiana, has been anything but. Abandoned by her parents and left pregnant by her boyfriend, Ceejay has had to fight every step of the way to carve out a future for herself and her daughter. She swears off men for good - until the day Noah Langford appears on her doorstep. Noah narrowly survived the roadside bombing in Iraq that cost him his leg, returning home to the news that his stepbrother, Matt, has died in a car accident. It is the final blow to Noah’s shattered soul - until he learns about the girlfriend and baby Matt abandoned.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Far from Perfect to be better than the print version?

    Using the Kindle edition and the audio edition at the same time is good listening practice as I adjust to my new Cochlear Implant. When both are downloaded to the Kindle Fire, they can be used simultaneously.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Noah. He is working at making his life better on his own. He is not waiting for someone else to make things easier for him.


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an excellent reader. As mentioned, in my case, it gave me the chance to both hear and read the words at the same time. I find when I read, I mentally put expression into the words I am reading and it was nice for her to provide that for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My heart hurt for Ceejay, that she couldn't trust.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a timely, excellent story. I was disappointed in the frequent use of bad language throughout the book. It added absolutely nothing to the story, and I would have enjoyed it even more without the bad language. I won't recommend it to my friends because of that. I like the story and have bought the next in the series to continue practice for the Cochlear Implant, but again, I can't recommend the next one to anyone who is offended by such language, for the same reason.
