Star quarterback Austin Lawson’s dating life is fair game to the myriad gossip bloggers. Thanks to his most recent screw up with a social media savvy super model, he’s forced to return home so that his PR team can do damage control. To help speed things along, he volunteers at Jessamine Elementary School, never dreaming he’d find the perfect solution to his image problem in Harper Bell. Sweet as anything, she’s star struck by him and agrees to date-after-date, never suspecting the real reason he wants to be with her. But as things begin to heat up between them, Austin realizes that he wants Harper for more than just a quick fix.
Harper Bell is perfectly content as a second grade teacher in the small town of Jessamine—until she meets the one man who makes her question her lack of social life. She never dreamed that sexy, hometown hero Austin Lawson would ever notice a plain-Jane like herself. And with one hot kiss, she begins to fall head over heels for him…until she learns the truth. Austin’s been using her.
Now Austin has to execute the perfect play to win back the girl of his dreams. Or will Harper bench him permanently?
Love So Perfect
Marquita Valentine has quickly become one of my 1-click authors. Love So Perfect was another reason why I love her books! Austin is a famous QB who was video taped behaving badly and shipped off until the scandal dies down. He goes to his tiny hometown in NC and meets elementary teacher Harper. He begins to see her and decides to use her to improve his tattered image. Of course Harper has no idea and-surprise, surprise-gets her heart broken. While there is no plot twist, major “holy s#!t” moment in the book, its still great. Why you ask? Because Austin and Harper are well written characters, their relationship is still interesting, and you can’t help but care about them. The book is sweet (Harper is a 30 year old virgin) and predictable but I think it really is a Love So Perfect!
