If you're looking for a book that has some heat, passion, romance, and will twist your heart up a bit, this is the perfect pick for you! Although, thi..Show More »s is part if a series. I recommend you complete Twisted Perfection first. Just be prepared to put on your big girl panties, grab the tissues, and hang on tight when you tackle this little gem. There were quite a few surprises in this book. The first half of the book moves along at a steady pace. The second half of the book nearly knocked the wind out of me. I won't go into detail and ruin the impact for you, but just know that you will never see some of these things coming. This book continues basically at the point Twisted Perfection ended. Della is starting to adjust to the fact that Woods really does love and want her, she still struggles with the issues in her past. She fears that she will hold Woods back in the long term and feels like he deserves more. Better. Like in the first book, there were times that Della just plain irritated me. She quickly jumps to conclusions and her insecurities can be frustrating. But, I also empathized with her. Her past has seriously wounded her. Despite the times I felt frustrated with Della, I still admire the fact that she isn't scared to take a chance. Della learns some startling info about her past which changes the direction for a more promising future. I feel that she shows a lot more growth in this book. As far as my feelings for Woods. ..well, lets just say I thought I liked him before, I was wrong. I absolutely adore him even more now. Overall, I really liked Simple Perfection. Woods and Della's relationship is special & very very SMEXY!! This couple has had to overcome some pretty difficult issues. But, they do and they do it together. In fact, their love for each other is the only thing that is simple in this book. I've enjoyed these characters and look forward to continuing with the next book in the series. On a side note, it would been more helpful if Audible would have made the rest of the books in the Fallen too Far series available first since Blair & Rush play a significant role in this series. Its frustrating learning bits & pieces about them in this book. Regardless, its not the end of the world. I just think it would have helped listeners connect better with the secondary characters in these books.
