Perfect Plans #2

Sometimes, dreams come true.
And, sometimes…
They seem too good to be true.

So many questions, one affirmation…I am in love with Alexander Tate. Everything I've dreamed of was standing right in front of me. My ultimate fantasy come true. My more. So, why am I running?

Aby Ryan spent twelve years doubting herself…Can she really learn to trust others before learning to trust herself?

Alex and Aby's story continues in the powerfully sensual sequel in The Perfect Plans series, Take a Bow. The final instalment of their story is wrought with jealousy, endless desire, sinfully decadent sex, betrayal, humour, empowerment and, of course, love.


“When I met you, I walked into a fantasy. You… you are my fantasy. But it comes with a reality I wasn’t prepared for, as much as I thought I could be… for you.”

This book continued where the last one left off. There reunion was perfect. It wasn’t easy; it was realistic and true to their characters. I loved the way Alexander challenged Aby to face some hard truths in her life, but also how he loved and supported her. And boy did he love her… Mercy! (Don’t worry, we’ll get to that…)

“If I’m the devil, Aby, you are the angel that will save me”

Just like the last book, the character development is probably my favorite part of the book. They are well rounded characters with great humor and chemistry. The group of friends surrounding the main couple is fabulous! I really felt like I could sit down at a bar with this group and hang all night. I LOVE STACEY! She had me laughing out loud throughout the book.

“I’m reading Stacey’s texts. She’s nuts.”

Obviously any girl would be thrilled to be “Alexander-Tated” but I what I really loved in this book was how much Aby grew and changed, she really found herself in this story. She gained self-confidence and great strength. Being in a relationship with Alex is not easy but she sure as hell figured it out.

There were so many great moments in this book. Good and bad, I was riveted but the flow of the story. There were some crazy OMG moments followed by twists that I just simply not expecting. I held my breath more than once and hoped that the angst would end soon. What I loved was that there was a balance between the drama and the romance. Despite what was happening, there is no doubt that Aby and Alexander had amazing chemistry. I hate to give anything away in a review, but I will tell you that I was dying while reading the drunken text messages. Oh my… And the steam level in this book falls under the rating of “Holy Hell Hot!” We are talking Threat Level Red. Be prepared with a partner or a cold shower nearby as you read this one!!!!

“Cocky, Mr. Tate?”

The epilogue was great! I was grinning like a fool as I read. The fun and sexiness were both present as always, but the sweetness was wonderful! It was the perfect conclusion.

Not tonight, Miss Ryan. Tonight is about new beginnings.”

I’m really going to miss these two. I hope they show up again soon.

I give this book 4 solid stars and pair it with a melon ball. Cheers! 😉
