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

What the Critics Say

"Sexy fun....A frolicsome mystery...Jaine Bright lives up to her name: she's as bright - and explosive - as a firecracker." (People)

"There is nothing quite like a sexy and suspenseful story by the amazing Linda Howard! The sparring relationship between Sam and Jaine is a delight. Mr. Perfect is funny, exciting, gripping, and sensuous - in fact it ranks as one of her all-time best!" (Romantic Times)

    Story
    "For die-hard Linda Howard Fans"
    If you’ve listened to books by Linda Howard before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to this book because I've listened to or read just about everything Linda Howard has ever written. Up against some of my favorites like "Kiss Me While I Sleep" and "Death Angel", this book is definitely not one of Ms. Howard's best. It is an odd mix of humorous romance entwined with a plot that features a psychotic serial killer. I couldn't decide if I should laugh or feel edgy. The reader did a good job with voicing the multiple characters, which made it easy to listen to. This is a fun 'read' and a good one if you are a true Linda Howard fan. If this is your first time with this author, try my favorites first.

    Story
    "A WORTHY LISTEN"

    It started off as a really funny lighthearted story which was expertly switched into a dark murder mystery romance (with a twist or two along the way) by the skilled writings of Ms Howard.

    Worth a credit? If you're looking for a good romance thriller then, for the price, just buy it with $ coz it's cheap enough.

    Story
    "Glad Audible has this book!"
    Would you listen to Mr. Perfect again? Why?

    I read this book a number of years ago and laughed my head off. It was available on tape but not CD and I've continued to watch for the CD or download and now its here. Once again I laughed out load. I found the narrator took a while to get used to but that was the only down side. Some of the references in the book are dated as you would expect from a re-issue but I still loved it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The antics and smart mouth of the main character.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laura Hicks’s performances?

    Rather not

    Story
    "Serial KILLER is out for revenge~HOWARDS BEST !~!"

    PLOT: 5 women make a list of the "perfect man" leading a serial killer to hunt them down.

    Janine Bright is one of the 5 friends who meet every Friday for a drink and "rag" on men session. After a few drinks they make up a list of the "perfect man" in each womans eyes and the list is HYSTERICAL AND DETAILED "~ SOON the List is bringing UNWANTED attention and fame to the ladies of the List as it hits GOOD MORNING AMERICA and the internet. An abused killer is SET off when HE reads the list and soon is stalking one by one the ladies who wrote the list. Janine has RUDE nasty neighbor who has the disposition of a RABID skunk~ is DETECTIVE SAM DONOVAN~ oh THE fun AS Janine and Sam goes toes to toes in this one~ BEST character development by Howard we have read. the slant is on HUMOR and intrigue as Janine suddenly is *involved* with Sam in and out of bed.~ as the KILLER slowly tracks down the LIST ladies SAM is doing his very best to keep Janine alive.
    I give this plot 10 stars but 5 is as high as they go. We also get inside the mind of the KILLER who was very abused as a child who is driven to "GET even". The mystery is first rate~ the romance is hot hot hot~ the humor is grand because this couple IS FUN~ and the great surprise ending is excellent. this was unavailable on audio for many years in the un abrided form and audible has been able to give this oldie but goodie GEM by Linda Howard. The READER is excellent and this over all is one of the BEST by Linda Howard. also see All the Queens Men and Now You See Her and Open Season all released again in audio after many years and were very hard to find RELEASE IN UNABRIDGED FORM~ thank you audbible~

    "Good story ruined by a mediocre narrator......."
    Any additional comments?

    The storyline was good, not great (a bit predictable). The narrator completely grated on my nerves. Her male voices all sounded like a grumpy old man who has smoked for 40 years, and her elderly lady voice sounded like the wicked witch of the west. Too bad really, because I would have enjoyed the book much more with a different narrator.

    "An old favourite finally available on Audible"

    I have been looking for this audiobook for years after getting it from the library long ago. As soon as I saw it in audible's listing, I downloaded it. I noticed right away that it was not the narrator I remember. Researching this, I found that the original narrator that made me love the book so much was Jenna Stern. Laura Hicks is fine. I have no real complaints, but I didn't find her Jaine quite as funny and engaging. I think if I had never heard the original I would have given this narrator a higher rating. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her, I would listen to her narrate any other books, I just preferred Jenna Stern on this one, having had that comparison. But other than that, the book was as good as I remember. The perfect combination of murder mystery, suspense, romance and my favourite part - humour.
