Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It'll be fun, they said.

I know I've closed myself off in a major way in the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It's past time I try to live again or just give up completely. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I'm standing outside Oren Tenning's bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he'd probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten.

Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

The Forbidden Men series has truly been one of my favorite series over the last year. Who doesn’t love a look-but-no-touch temptation?  Seeing all the characters as changes have come into their lives has been an experience worth reading. What ensues in A Perfect Ten is arguably one of the most hilarious, infuriating, and hot Forbidden Men reads.

We have previously been introduced to Oren Tenning and Caroline Gamble in earlier books in the series.  Ten knows how to work it. He is self-assured and has never fretted over any girl until her, Caroline Gamble, his Achilles heal and game changer. He has tried everything to avoid this attraction, but it has only deepened the overwhelming pull that he has to her.  Caroline is painfully in lust with Ten.  She can’t get over anything about him. But for her sanity, she knows that she must try. She can be hell on wheels and mischievous. Making up her mind to satisfy her sexual cravings, she puts a plan in motion that sets the stage for our story, and opens up her own Pandora’s box. 

A Perfect Ten was that, perfect!  Why did I love it? Let me count the ways. I adored the snarky but sweet characters. They gave so much flavor and set the tone for the story. I love color! Linda Kage used wording in her writing that illuminated the story for me. I didn’t have to try hard at all to see every detail present. The friends in the story were the kind you want to pick up and squeeze…laugh with you, cry with you, and kill for you.  Ten and Caroline’s encounters were everything that I hoped they would be…hot, sensual, and jaw-dropping! All of these things combined to make this a top shelf read!
