It's Not Easy Being Right... Vanessa Campbell is a CPA by day and a perfectionist by night. She's fit, successful...and decidedly lonely. She can't stop thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron. He's just like her: smart, attractive, and usually right—except when dealing with her. ...But Someone's Got To Do It. Cameron McCauley likes Vanessa a little too well. She's a blond goddess with a razor-sharp tongue. She hates to be wrong, just like him. But she can hold a grudge and is stubborn to a fault—also like him. A past misunderstanding has them rubbing each other the wrong way. Cam is dying to shake Vanessa up—get her to let loose. But if he succeeds, can his heart handle it?
I love the McCauley Brothers series by Marie Harte and Ruining Mr. Perfect gave us Cameron, the youngest McCauley’s story, along with a few side stories that gave it a small-town vibe. From page one Harte grabbed me, and I devoured this as I laughed, sighed and crossed my fingers. If you haven’t tried this series yet, I highly recommend it to fans of BROTHERS *yummy brothers*, small-town feels, family and just the right amount of heat.
Caffeinated Dates with Ruining Mr. Perfect
First Date: In the previous novel Vanessa Campbell our little perfectionist, drill sergeant and number geek shared a rather smokin’ hot kiss with Cameron. He is the youngest McCauley, who unlike his brother’s isn’t in the family construction business, prefers apple-flavored beers, eats healthy and is neat. Nothing has happened since then, but Cameron is finding opportunities to spend time with her. Vanessa is impossibly attracted to him, but with her roommates dating his brothers it could get messy and Vanessa doesn’t do messy.
Second Date: I love the little tango, denial and friendship developing between them. Talks at the gym, and a situation push them into spending time together and ooh-la-la the sparks, the heat, the view. I am melting as I try to both savor and move forward to my HEA. Meanwhile, there is trouble at the McCauley homestead, and it is shaking up the boys. Mike and Delilah butt heads and the brothers dish and tease each other. I adore the small-town vibe, side stories and updates regarding previous couples.
Third Date: Vanessa and Cameron are so hot together, but Vanessa has some hang-ups and trust issues that are making things difficult. Miscommunication, feelings, fears and an unexpected complication throw a bump into the relationship. Of course, family and friends are there to offer advice and help the couple out. Other threads wrap us as our couple grows in their relationship. The chemistry between Cannon and Vanessa was delightful from their banter to sexy time making this date the most precious as I rooted for them.
I enjoyed my dates with Ruining Mr. Perfect and recommend the series to fans of brothers, friendships, and family. Fans of Bella Andre will enjoy this series. What to Do with a Bad Boy the next book features Mike and his son.
