Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines

Simple Perfection: A Rosemary Beach Novel (The Rosemary Beach Series)


Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?

I didn't like this book as much as the first Woods/Della book, but I still enjoyed it. Della started to annoy me, I understand trying to be there for Woods but man you need to tell him when he is being too protective and trying to control you too much. In his mind he is protecting you and if it is too much you don't just say sure that is fine then run off, you talk to the person! He is reasonable and if you talk to him you can work it out. Her self doubt in this book was understandable for a bit, but it wore on me after a while. I get that she does need to figure things out and think she is good enough for him, but man.   When she overheard him having a conversation in the stairwell and obviously talking about his mom what does she do? Thinks it is about her and just runs off the following day. Way to devastate Woods! And he has so much going on already you are just adding to his plate of things to deal with. I did admire his restraint when her friends kept telling him to stay away just a little while longer. 

I did like how Della did deal with her past and move on from it, working so she doesn't have her nightmares and such anymore. I didn't buy that she changed that much that quickly though, over more time sure. Even with all of these annoyances and things I didn't like, I still like Woods and Della. I like their story and just want them both to be super happy together! So overall I did enjoy the story, I just didn't like it as much as the first one.
