Publisher's Summary

What would make the perfect man?

That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

Turning to her neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaine must unmask a killer to save her friends - and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival - as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

©2001 Linda Howard (P)2012 Simon & Schuster

    Story
    "Not what the reviews make it out to be."

    I found it hard to relate to the premise of this book, maybe because it was originally published in 2004 and today it's hard to imagine how a checklist for a Mr. Perfect would set off a killer, and get all of the attention it gathered in the book, I kept rolling my eyes and trying to force myself back into the era of the book, but even then I still didn't believe that the list was as racy and controversial as it is meant to be.
    Also there aren't many characters in the book, so it's very easy to determine who the killer was, and I feel as if last minute changes to one of the characters was developed just to further the plot and reveal the killer to the reader. Even with the twist I knew very early in the book who the killer was. I did not enjoy this book, although the performance was good, I found the story to be lacking. I expected so much more because of all the high ratings and reviews, this story is not sexy I would barely classify it as light romance...it could actually go in the cozy category.

    "Enjoyable story"

    I liked this audiobook and had read the book previously. I wasn't too thrilled with the narration of this book. For some reason, the narrator has a voice that just grated on my nerves. Otherwise I liked this audiobook ok

    "Great Suspenseful Story"

    Great suspenseful story that kept me on edge of my seat. Very surprised at who the villain was. Loved the love story also with a lot of humorous situations.

    "Hooked"
    If you could sum up Mr. Perfect in three words, what would they be?

    Cheeky, sexy, suspense


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Female protagonist - Many women can relate to her.


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

    Emotional depth


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climax had me on the edge of my seat.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't use this recording to fall asleep with. You won't want to turn it off.

    Story
    "Fun listen with mild eye rolls"

    Mild Spoilers- first off I really don't understand why no one uses their cellphones or has them..? And why you'd agreed to get married after knowing someone a week. Also I can't believe there is a world where 4 women come up with a list of a few very basic/text book characteristics of their idea of a perfect man and receive national attention for it. Even if it's a slow news week! Other than that I really enjoyed the Jane character, quite dynamic. And the chemistry between her and Sam. I do wish their flirting would have gone on a little longer. The narrator really didn't have enough distinction in her voice imho. But it was a fun listen with some interesting storytelling.

    "Mr Perfect is ALMOST perfect"

    Witty dialogue, great characters and an interesting story told by a great narrator. Not overly sexual but definitely not PG

    "I did enjoy the overall story..."
    Any additional comments?

    liked this story...it was funny and smart. The only thing that I think didn't hold any strength was the content of the plot. I am trying to figure out a way of saying this without giving anything away :)
    Directly from the synopsis: As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation

    What they actually did and the reaction and publicity they received just wouldn't happen. I really liked how the author played the instant sensationalism into the story and how it created a chain of events, but honestly, I think that the author could have written a better catalyst than a "perfect man list"...

    "Yuck"

    Way too much sex and it really doesn't go in a crime novel .... Very off putting and the mystery is dull and predictable too!

    "Very good"

    It was a perfect blend in of comedy and crime, mot sure if that was intended but the book was brilliantly put together with style. The narrator was good, but I think a male narrator to do the male would have been better, but she did a good job.
