Review - A Perfect Mess (A Perfect Secret Series, #1) by Zoe Dawson

Blurb from Goodreads:
I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

My Review:

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley. Thanks to Toot Suite and Zoe Dawson*
3/5 stars
Aubree Walker tries to be perfect and have the perfect life but when she receives a call informing her that her aunt is in hospital, she has to return to Tulane, her hometown that reminds her how imperfect she actually is.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three gorgeous Outlaw triplets, has been in love with Aubree from the moment he first saw her and thinks Aubree is as perfect as she seems.

Aubree and Booker share a dark secret - the reason why Aubree has avoided going home for nine months - that someone is trying to unearth.

A Perfect Mess is a story of guilt and love. I enjoyed the writing style and the romance between Aubree and Booker. It was emotional and well-written though I didn't find it hard to guess Aubree's secret.
A good read.
