His life was never easy. Hers wasn’t supposed to be this hard. They come from different worlds, but fate lures them together in a way neither expected in Cecy Robson’s raw, steamy series debut—perfect for fans of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn.

Evelyn Preston’s future once looked perfect—until her wealthy father was caught in an embezzlement scandal and took his own life. Alone and struggling to pay her college tuition and bills, Evelyn finds a job as a waitress at the ultra-hip nightclub Excess, where she used to have more in common with the privileged private-school clientele than her fellow staff members. But something attracts her to the sexy six-foot-four bouncer and underground MMA fighter Mateo Tres Santos. Although they’ve led different lives, their troubled pasts bonds them in both survival and love.

Mateo is ex-army who wound up in prison for assaulting the man who harmed his sister. Now he’s feeling the same protective impulse for this petite blond waitress. When Evelyn experiences a panic attack at the club, Mateo comes to her rescue. And when Mateo is wounded shielding her from a brawl, Evelyn returns the favor and comes to his aid.

As their attraction intensifies, Mateo is determined to find out what nightmares are lurking in Evelyn’s past—even if that means tackling his own to save her.

This is what I consider to be a "want to hide in bed all day so I can just read one more page" kind of read.  ONCE PERFECT was...well...Just Perfect! If I didn't have two little ones, and work to do, I would have finished in one sitting...ahhh...I remember those days...

Back to the book, Cecy Robson got me hooked...line and sinker, and for those who are fans of movies like CRAZY BEAUTIFUL , the PERFECT CHEMISTRY Series by Simone Elkeles, and the TRUE Believers Series by Erin McCarty, you will SOOO want to grab a hold of ONCE PERFECT, clear the calendar and dive into the sexy, sweet, emotional, and sometimes horrific world that is Teo and Evie...Oh Mateo (yes, for all you ALL MY CHILDREN fans....the heroes name is MATEO and he likes some gringa too!)

In ONCE PERFECT, we get a little something different from what we keep seeing in the NA world.  We get a club atmosphere, a taste of Underground Fighting, and the madness that is the age we call New Adult and the "Shattered Pasts" that come to haunt you when you think you can escape it!

The story is truly emotional at times, silly at times, sexy at times, and all together AWESOME.  I can't WAIT to see where Cecy takes the Shattered Past Series, which I believe is Lety and Brody next (OH YEAH), and I HOPE Sofia and Killian after that (and my daughter is Sofia with an "f", so I like her even more).
