Review Blitz & Book Spotlight | Ruining Mr. Perfect by Marie Harte





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 much. 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 disagreement 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?

My Review

She’s going to eat him alive. I just knew it. She’d eat him for breakfast, chew him well, and have him digested before lunch time. But I so love Vanessa, she’s very intelligent, and I just adore smart women. She’s beautiful, not to mention she has a type A personality who is honest to a fault, doesn’t tolerate bulls*** and a perfectionist. She’s one of the promising accountants in a private firm and on her way on becoming a partner. But she is a lonely girl. It didn’t help her constantly thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron who was exactly just like her – smart, and attractive only that he couldn’t seem to do anything right when it comes to her.

If you love smart women, wait until you come across Cam: an intelligent and SENSITIVE man. Yep, you got it right. But it doesn’t make him a ninny. It makes him irresistible in my eyes. He likes Vanessa – way too much. She might not like to be wrong, and really, really stubborn just like him.

How can two people who are very much alike, and as stubborn as a mule can work things out? My sentiments exactly. But it had worked out. It wasn’t easy, they had things to consider, things to talk about, knowing both of them always wanted to be right, and Vanessa always wanting to be in control. It was great that they have friends and family surrounding them, ready to give them a sound smack just to get them into their senses. For super intelligent people, they can be a little stupid when it comes to love and relationship.

With a stubborn woman and a sensitive man, not to mention family dramas, teasing brothers, great friends and steamy scenes makes Ruining Mr. Perfect the perfect read for my stormy afternoon.

I just knew this was going to be so much fun and I wasn’t wrong. Two smart people thrown into a one wild, hot ride that can set your sheets in fire!

This is my first read in the series (which thank goodness can be read as stand alone), and Marie Harte gave me enough reason to read the rest of it.

Excerpt
“Colin,” Cam tried again. “You know dumping water on someone in the shower is a no-no. And especially Ubie’s new girlfriend.” Ubie—short for Uncle Brody. Brody Singer, the blond “adopted” McCauley who had grown up as part of the family 
“But he told me to do it.” 
Cam blinked. “He did? Well, you should never—” 
“Dad thought it was kind of funny after he yelled at me.” Colin gave him a sharp nod, then added with a smirk, “Dad said he used to do that to you, and that you cried like a girrrl.” Considering Colin’s anti-girl phase, that was a high insult. 
“Is that right?” Cam frowned, remembering being the butt of too many jokes while growing up. “Mike has no idea what he’s dealing with. You think your dad’s tough? Watch Uncle Cam.” Knowing he shouldn’t encourage the mischief in his nephew’s eyes but unable to stop himself from the unspoken dare, Cam hurried to the kitchen, found a large glass and filled it with ice-cold water. Considering the freezing January wind outside, Mike would be basking in a hot shower to warm up. Cam grinned, looking forward to his brother’s howl of misery. 
Colin trailed him like a puppy. “Oh wow, Uncle Cam. Are you going to get Dad?” He clapped. 
“Shh.” 
“Oh, sorry.” Colin’s big grin showed a missing front tooth. 
Cam walked down more ugly brown carpet that looked as it if had been vacuumed to death—Mike and his obsession with cleanliness—and tiptoed into the big guy’s room. He made sure he had a clear exit. If his goliath big brother caught him, he’d be toast. Fortunately, he could move like a gazelle. 
Gliding into the master bathroom, he readied himself. One, two…three. He yanked open the curtain and tossed the cold water at…Vanessa Campbell? 
He stared in shock at the sexiest woman he’d seen in a long, long time. Naked, her creamy skin glistened with water as she gaped at him in horror. Which quickly turned to anger. 
Cameron McCauley! 
“Oh, wow.” He couldn’t look away
