Publisher's Summary

Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle-of-nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant, bartender, and adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with "The" Jeremy Jameson and can't say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once-in-a-lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.

Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there's nothing to pretend about their relationship.

    "One of my favorites..."

    ** Audiobook provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review.***

    Perfect Imperfections is one of my favorite reads of the year and the audiobook managed to surpass every expectation I had of it!

    Jeremy is rockstar royalty, and he's straight or so he thinks. Despite his upbringing or perhaps because of it, he's very innocent in some of his beliefs. Reg is the most patient man in the universe, I swear, he gives Jeremy all he needs in terms of closeness and intimacy as he waits for him to realize that he might not be as straight as he's always thought.

    Charlie David did a fantastic job at making Jeremy and Reg come to life and more than made justice to a story that was already fantastic on its own right. He imprinted a lot of emotion into the narration, managing to show us all the elements that made this story so great. He conveyed Jeremy and Reg's growing intimacy, their feelings, Jeremy's innocence and Reg's patience and love; and damn if he somehow made the sizzling chemistry between Jeremy and Reg and the hotness of them together burn even hotter.

    All the different nuances in his voice, and the different voices he made for the different characters, how differently he narrated the funnier parts from the very sexy scenes to the more serious, emotion-filled scenes, that is what separates this audiobook from the rest. Definitely my favorite of all the audiobooks I've listened so far!

    Rating: 5+ Stars!!!

    "5 Stars! Flawless!"

    About the story...

    A straightforward read, very little angst, with a heavy focus on the relationship...which was as always, deliciously sweet!

    Cardeno C. does an amazing job when it comes to characters developing a friendship first, then building on that as they search for something more. It's a trademark aspect in many of this author's books, and something I really enjoy and look forward too. You get to know them first, understand their frame of mind before they deepen their bond and become intimate...an then it's always so loving and tender. Such is the relationship that develops between Jeremy and Reg

    It was a delightful read, and as with all of Cardeno C's books, the sweet bubbles to the top and leaves the reader with a satisfying glow and a happily-ever-after smile!

    About the audio book...

    This was my first listen by Charlie David and I found his narration to be as smooth as silk. His tone was easy on the ears, he created distinguishable fitting voices for each of the characters, and transitioned nicely from one to the next. The narrator also understood Jeremy and Reg's personalities, brought the needed emotions into their voices at the right time, captured the essence of the story and made this a very pleasant listen. I'll definitely be looking for more of his work

    Loved the rock song intro in the beginning, and then the brief musical interludes between chapters, however I wish it would have only played once, it wasn't necessary for it to fade in and out twice. That's my only complaint.

    "LOVE IT! "

    The story is amazing! It's a extremely sweet love.. the way Regi treats Jeremy is sooooo romantic. I really loved how the story was written.

    Personally I think Cardeno C. its excellent. Always finds a way to write a heartwarming story full of hot scenes too.

    The way the narrator give life to the characters is the best! and the music in between chapter was just great. Couldn't stop singing along.

    I enjoyed from beginning to end!

    Totally recommended!

    "Perfection"

    Cardeno C. with Charlie David is a match made in audiobook heaven. Charlie has the sexiest, smokey voice that simply allows you to feel all of the emotion that Cardeno has put into the story. This was perfection.

    Story
    "Love Cardeno C"
    Would you listen to Perfect Imperfections again? Why?

    I love Cardeno C.

    And this book reminds me why.

    Two guys meet in a bar, and based upon that brief meeting, one decides to change his entire life. It might have been predictable, but this was anything but. Jeremy Jameson is an amazing rock star, but the people around him who are supposed to make his life easier aren't very good at their jobs. When Reg Moore agrees to join Jeremy on the tour as his fake boyfriend, he thinks he'll see the world and keep JJ (his nickname for Jeremy) company. But he can't just sit back and watch Jeremy being disrespected, so he steps in and takes control of the situation.

    This book is low-angst. It is a story about a man who is comfortable with his homosexuality who opens the eyes of the man he considers a friend. Reg is just an easy-going guy who is the perfect foil for the high-strung Jeremy. Their journey together is sweet and heartwarming.

    And the cuddling. Oh, the cuddling. It made me jealous.

    A great happy ending, a bonus scene, and a great soundtrack make this the perfect book.



    What was one of the most memorable moments of Perfect Imperfections?

    The cuddle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The bonus scene.


    If you could take any character from Perfect Imperfections out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    That's a tough one. Reg is chill and Jeremy is high energy. Both would be great companions.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the song.

    "Wtf! Lame @$$ music..."

    I want to throttle the person who thought it was a good idea to include music in this audio book! First of all the song seriously sucks. Second, it's annoying as hell. Wtf. Ruins an otherwise great story and performance by the narrator. You're better off reading the book.

    Story
    "The performer sells the implausible"
    What made the experience of listening to Perfect Imperfections the most enjoyable?

    Charlie David is an experienced, competent performer with a passion for the characters he portrays and a clarity of delivery that allows the listener to understand his words with ease and to access the emotions of the character with an equal facility.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story is awfully predictable and, especially at the outset, there are a lot of things that occur that are just rather difficult to believe might happen. The more the reader knows of the world in which the author sets the work, the harder they will find it to suspend their disbelief. For this listener, I was pleased that I listened to the recording and had not read the book. The reader sold otherwise eye-rolling dialogue and unbelievable circumstances with an easy style and a seeming truth in delivery.


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

    The reader has an apparent skill and an obvious talent for creating a character and, beyond that, for assuming a tone appropriate for the location dictated by the author. His speaking voice changed in private conversations in private settings and was still in character, but appropriate to more public situations. Beyond that, he was rather successful at separating the voices of the characters without apparent effort or affectation, thus providing a clarity for the listener as to which character the author had assigned the dialogue.


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

    The eventual acceptance of the musician of his affection and connection to the man who had been his companion and friend was expected and necessary to the plot line, but I was affected by the timing, in particular, that the reader/performer brought to the delivery of this moment in the text. It was easy and unhurried and gentle with a depth of feeling that made what might have been a rather tired turn-around in the nature of the character far more engaging and yet never sentimental, a very good balance of vocal skill and emotional commitment to the words.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so tired of poorly written works of fiction with LGBTQ characters. I long for more complex and yet still realistic, believable and true-to-life revelations, events, developments, and characters. I have read other works by this author and I believe he is growing as a writer who can create full, complete, and resonant stories. I don't think this is one of those, but it shows that the writer has that potential and the vocal characterization of the actor reading the text added the essential, vital element the improbable story required.

    Story
    "A perfect slow-burn friends to lovers with hot HEA"
    What made the experience of listening to Perfect Imperfections the most enjoyable?

    This is such a beautiful character lead story with incredibly real and likeable main characters that are so well written the reader/listener genuinely feels like they know the men! The story develops so beautifully from a random meeting to genuine warm friendship that eventually becomes more, once Jeremy discovers things he never knew about himself! Jeremy is a Rock Star born to famous parents who grew up in the glare of the media but never had a real friend, and Reggie is just a regular guy who is everything Jeremy needs. Reggie is such an amiable guy, everyone should have a Reggie in their lives.
    A thoroughly lovely book, narrated beautifully by Charlie David, this is a real feel-good story!

    "Can't distinguish between the MCs"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I love this story, at least when reading it but the voices between the MCs weren't distinguishable and that made it difficult to understand who was talking if you aren't familiar with the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The song in the beginning and between the chapters was ANNOYING!!! I didn't care for the music, which every time I heard it I thought I was going to listen to a Scorpions song, and the lyrics were meeeeh!

    "A winner"

    A winning combination of Cardeno C and Charlie David. The story is funny and loving and basically one long sweet seduction, both main characters are sympathetic, and Bill the manager is a deviation from the norm by being gay himself, rather than the 'usual' villan. Charlie David is simply an excellent narrator, both main characters have their own distinct 'voice' and he always reads with feeling. Worth the money, listen to it!
