I always get a bit nervous, when reading a book written by multiple authors. I find that it can sometimes seem choppy, and the parts written by each different author can be obvious. However, I was hopeful, since this one is part of the Misadventures Series, and thus far the books have all been fabulous. I am happy to report that this book was no exception. It was fantastic, and it was very fluid, and I could not tell it was written by two different writers.
I really, really loved this book. I think the thing that really drew me in, was the characters. I loved both the female (Blake) and male (Gavin) leads. They were fabulous. I could relate to Blake quite a bit, and I really enjoyed her blossom throughout the story. Gavin is a man to be adored.
This book will make you laugh, scream, cry, and turn the pages. It is one of the better books I have read recently. I was honestly hooked before the end of the first chapter. I found myself invested in the characters. I genuinely want to know what happens next. It was a genuinely pleasure watching the affect they had on each other.
This was my first book by authors Elizabeth and Hayley aka Elizabeth Hayley, but it will not be my last.
I will say that you make get a tiny bit frustrated at first by Blake, but have some faith. Ride it out, and she will win you over.
So, definitely read this one. Continue reading, to find a brief synopsis of the book, information about the authors, and most importantly- links to buy your own copy!!! There is even a link to a giveaway!!!
Having had an especially troubling childhood, Blake’s aware she doesn’t exactly fit the definition of “normal.” Her lack of filter, dry sense of humor, and uncanny ability to read people make her rather unique—and difficult to live with. When her latest roommate has had enough of her antics, Blake decides living with a man might suit her better.
Gavin Gibson’s a dreamer whose artsy aspirations don’t meet the high expectations of his wealthy family. Cast off and cut off, Gavin needs a place to live. When he’s invited to share Blake’s quaint apartment, he cannot pass it up. With a knack for spotting the good in others, Gavin can see past Blake’s quirks—and neither of them can ignore their sexual chemistry.
As sparks fly, their genuine affection for each other grows, and Gavin begins to break down Blake’s defenses. But can Blake open up to reveal the damage she’s worked so hard to conceal?

Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin).
"Elizabeth" lives with her husband, daughter, and nutjob of a dog. "Hayley" lives with her husband, son, and her own crazy dog. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind."
What I need you to know... I received an ARC of this book to read, and write an honest review. I was not paid to say anything, and anything I say, is my honest opinion.
