Perfect offers up some ethnic and social discrimination and the results it has on a couple who are meant to be even if they don’t know it yet.

Brooke Pennington is hot stuff, not only is she hot, but she’s brainy, and she uses that brain to attend law school, where she meets Sam Martinez.

Sam Martinez, of the hot body and Mexican background, finds the very Anglo Saxon Brooke incredibly attractive. But Sam fights his lust because Brooke is rich and comes from a socially prestigious background.

Brooke strives to be perfect, but above all she wants Sam in her life and in her bed. The social disparages between the two wreak havoc with Sam, who thinks he’s just a plaything to Brooke, even though he wants to believe he’s more than just a solid, steady bed partner. Brooke’s insecurities over her wealth and past relationship troubles play head games of its own, and Brooke finds herself claiming she only wants to sleep with Sam, never allowing herself to entertain the idea that there could be more than just the sex. That Sam thinks she’s a complete snob and self absorbed doesn’t help much.

What will it take for these two to realize that their differences are what makes them perfect together?

These two are a couple of bull headed, narrow minded, bright people who have allowed society’s rules to dictate their lives. I wanted to scream with frustration over their continual refusal to acknowledge that the relationship had long since made it past the physical connection, and was thrust kicking and screaming into the emotional realm. That was what made this such a great read, beyond the incredible sex, I felt the need to sit these two down and have a good heart to heart! This is a classic love story, the struggle of overcoming class division and societal beliefs, however done Ms. Harte style, it takes on a whole new meaning!

Passionate and fiery, a plot with precision and rich in the colors of ethnic diversity is Perfect!
