Publisher's Summary

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. Suddenly Noah has a new mission: to make amends with the family his brother rejected.

From the moment he meets Ceejay, her beauty and warmth act like a balm on his fractured heart. But when a painful secret comes to light, it threatens to break the fragile bond growing between them...and to destroy a love powerful enough to heal them both.

    "Super"

    I loved this book so good, I bought the other 2 series, you won't be disappointed in this one, A very touching family story, a great plot, and you never know what is going to happen next, especially with C.J. but Noah is one that will melt your heart, not many men like him around.
    be sure to get all 3 book's..you won't be dissapointed

    Any additional comments?

    Every once in a while I want a romance. This is a good romance. I liked the characters, the story, the setup with the dead brother and materialistic grandparents. You knew from the beginning what was going to happen, and it did, and all's right with the world. It's not a book you would sit down and just listen to, but it is great for waiting in line, or painting, or cleaning the kitchen. I found it quite satisfying for that.

    "Great story"
    Would you listen to Far from Perfect again? Why?

    Great Story - however the narrator leave much to be desired. Everytime she says "to" it sounds like she is reading from a script.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Far from Perfect?

    all


    How could the performance have been better?

    different narrator


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no - over a couple of days

    Average says it all. Just an ok story, the narrator was just ok. Too much story not enough romance for my tastes. It was just a sweet story with a HEA ending.

    "Nice story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I didn't finish listening to the story as the narration was very hard to listen to.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not every letter and syllable needs to be pronounced.


    Was Far from Perfect worth the listening time?

    The story is good and I would like to know how concludes; but not worth the irritation.

    All the "good guys" are gorgeous and rich. The "bad guys" are ugly slugs. All ends happily for the the "good guys".
