Almost Perfect by Julie Ortolon
A Free Spirit and a Reformed Badboy — a Perfect Match?
Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a bestselling book, How to Have the Perfect Life–until
they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up
their lives. The worst part is…it’s sort of true. Together they make a
pact: they each have one year to face down their fears–and maybe show
Miss Perfect a thing or two!
Book One: Almost Perfect
Maddy was always the artistic one of the group, full of life from her saucy
red curls to her vintage hippie skirts. Her challenge, the friends
decide, is to get her artwork accepted at a gallery. A job as arts
director at a summer camp near Santa Fe–with its thriving art
scene–seems like just the thing.
There’s just one catch: The camp is run by Maddy’s high school flame, Joe, whose heart she smashed
when she chose her art over marriage to him. His anger over the breakup
hasn’t cooled one bit. But neither has their attraction.
Old desires burn hotter than ever as Joe makes it clear there’s only one way
back into his heart: She has to get serious about the art career she
once valued above all else. But will falling in love help or hinder
Maddy as she struggles to meet her challenge?
