About A lot Like Perfect
What kind of man falls for the woman meant for his buddy?
Navy SEAL Isaiah West has trouble calling himself “former” military, but after an involuntary discharge, redefining himself is the only option. The small town of Superstition Springs seems as good a place as any to regroup while he figures out where he’s supposed to go next—and deal with how that last operation in Syria messed up his place on the team.
Aria Nixon has long accepted her role as the “plain” sister and really, she has no use for a man who only sees her looks anyway. So when her Aunt Serenity’s love prediction mentions the word “makeover,” it’s game on to prove she can get noticed without one. Who better to help her get the inside track on how a man thinks than…a man? Isaiah specifically, who has his own prediction to sidestep.
But in a mystical place like Superstition Springs, nothing ever goes as expected. It turns out Isaiah and Aria have a lot in common, and what’s with the attraction between them? Not supposed to happen. She can’t fall for Isaiah. He’s too perfect, too much what she wasn’t looking for and too likely to break her heart when he leaves. And Isaiah isn’t about to admit he’s got feelings for the woman he’s supposed to be helping attract an entirely different guy—his teammate. They should stay friends. Right?
Welcome to Superstition Springs, town in progress…SEALs of Superstition Springs is a clean and wholesome series starring heroes you can share!
Something that so many will love about this series is so far they have been all light-hearted and sweet reads. If you read A lot Like Home, you’ve been introduced to all the characters that will get their own books within this series. I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t really care about Aria’s story, but she surprised me quite a bit. I enjoyed Aria and Isaiah’s story. It’s a friend to lovers story when the hero helps the heroine try and get the other guy to notice her, a while falling in love in the process. Even when they don’t realize it at first.
I’d definitely consider this a beach read, it’s light, low on the angst and drama, and these two are just sweet and will make you smile. I loved witnessing them slowly notice each other more and more as they work together, when Aria accepts a bet to try and get a date with a different SEALS member. However, reading Isaiah’s thoughts the whole time will make you a little bad especially when he starts to realize he has feelings for her. It was one of those everyone notices it except them.
So far, these two are my favorite couple in this series. I loved the journey that Isaiah needed to go on to figure out what he needed to do to move on and accept what happened on their mission while they were overseas. It was no easy task, but Aria helped him out quite significantly. I wished we saw more with Aria’s story and her relationship with her sisters, it definitely didn’t paint them in a good light. But we notice that in the first book of this series. To me, it felt like it wasn’t completely resolved and possibly brushed away as a small issue.
A rather enjoyable story with the sweetest of romance!
