Aimee hits all the right notes to make this a “perfect” second chance romance

55346405._SY475_Mr. Perfect by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aimee Nicole has outdone herself in this one, it’s sheer perfection for a second chance former lovers romance and it’s coupled with a really good suspense plot as a bonus.

Also, the ending/introduction to book three’s love interest for Rocky Jacobs is utterly brilliant and had me howling with laughter once I’d got over the heart-racing fear that our intrepid threesome had landed themselves in a situation they couldn’t escape from.

Felix and Jude are a glorious pair once they reconnect, but it takes some doing to reach that point and I felt so badly for both of them. This isn’t a romance where there’s a clear fault, both men were badly hurt at their split when they were young men at college.

I was rooting for Jude to get Felix to listen to him and to forgive him though from the off. The book is completely from Felix’s POV but you get a real sense of the character of the man who comes back into his life after more than a decade.

At first Felix is prickly and resistant, but as the investigation he’s working on for the Sinister in Savannah podcast with Jonah and Rocky gets ever more dangerous, his feelings towards Jude change when they’re constantly thrown into each other’s path.

Both men have a ways to go, not because Jude was all to blame, but because Felix needs to accept a few painful truths about himself when they were still at college. There’re loads and loads of feels in this book and they come from all over the place!

The suspense part of the plot is very clever, I have to say, I never saw the final twist coming at all! Brilliantly done Aimee!

Now I am absolutely dying to get my hands on book three because I’ve a feeling Aimee is going to blow that one out of the water. The sparks between Rocky and his love interest were off the charts with such a backstory I cannot wait to dive into.

This series has been an absolute triumph, I also really appreciated the guest appearance from Locke and Keye too 😁

Sometimes the best love stories come in two parts.

When Felix met handsome journalist Max Travers, it was lust at first sight. It was just his luck that he then had to develop a terrible case of feelings and got his heart broken. However, two-and-a-half years later, he’s over all of that. His job is going well, he has good friends, and he doesn’t lack for male company. Which, of course, is when Max has to come bursting back into his life.

Felix Jackson will always be the one who got away to Max. He’s spent their time apart regretting his actions and hoping for a second chance. When an accident lands him in Felix’s less than tender care, Max is determined to grab this opportunity. The only problem is that Felix is equally determined that he doesn’t.

From bestselling author, Lily Morton comes a story of missed opportunities, second chances, and two very stubborn men. This is the third book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt

I’m halfway home when my phone beeps. Digging it out of my pocket, I look down at the text and then give a startled laugh.

Max: Hope you’re home safely.

A smile plays on my lips as I tap on my phone.

Me: Why wouldn’t I be?

Max: Well, you were walking a bit funny. I was concerned that I’d shagged your coordination out of you.

Me: I think that only happens when people get to your advanced age.

He sends me back a one-fingered emoji, and I laugh.

Me: I cannot even begin to imagine how your number ended up on my phone?

Max: I put it in while you were in the bathroom. Thought it might come in handy.

Me: For what? If I ever happen to need my autobiography written?

Max: I’ve already got the title. ‘Sassy and Shagged Out’. It’ll be a bestseller.

Indiana Jones meets Clark Kent in this modern-day treasure hunt.

Archaeologist Cairo Vanderbilt was born to be a treasure hunter, whether he liked it or not. When his famous father dies in search of the tomb of Alexander the Great, Cairo picks up the trail to find the world’s most famous lost treasure. Having failed once before, he’s determined to find Alexander’s remains and fulfill his family’s legacy.

History blogger Dillinger DeCosta has only written about the past from the safety of his South Boston office. After hearing Cairo speak about the coming expedition on the evening news, he wants to join the hunt for Alexander and finally be on the front lines of history-in-the-making. By offering to come along, Dillinger is taking a huge risk, but he’s banking on an even bigger reward.

Hot on Alexander’s trail, Cairo and Dillinger discover sparks between them that ignite unexpectedly. One of the men has a secret that may threaten not only the success of the expedition, but their new relationship as well.

If they can’t find a way past the challenge that lies between them, they might just lose the greatest treasure of all.

Each other.

Excerpt

When we’d gotten back to the hotel, I’d stomped up to my room like a spoiled child. This is where I’d been for the last two hours. Alone and trying to figure a way out of this mess.

A knock at the connecting door between my room and Dillinger’s startled me out of my pity-party for one. Sighing, I headed to the door, pulling it open. What I saw was a bit of a surprise.

“You missed dinner.”Dillinger breezed past me and into my room, setting the dinner tray he was holding on my table.

I watched in awe as he started pulling lids off the plates. There was no way in hell I deserved this kind of treatment. He’d even brought me dessert.

“I didn’t know what you’d like, so I grabbed a bit of everything.”Dillinger’s intense green stare was boring into me.

To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure how to react. No one had ever done anything like this for me, not even Memphis when I was sick and miserable.

“You could have at least said thank you.”Dillinger strode back toward the doors connecting our rooms.

Shit…“No, wait.”I took off after him, grabbing his left elbow with more force than I intended. I yanked so hard that Dillinger crashed against my chest. My left arm reached out to steady him, pulling him closer to me in the process. He was warm and solid. It could have been my raging hormones, but holding him felt good, like I was home.

I knew my wistful thoughts were on the money when my body responded to his instantly. My cock was hardening and unless I missed my guess, so was Dillinger’s. This was wrong on so many levels. There was so much I needed to say to the man I was holding in my arms, but the only thought running through my head, on a loop, was. “Kiss him!”
