For seven years Ellie's been doing the same job as a celebrity concierge, but when McAllistar Stonewell turns up she is completely perplexed, especially as she had no idea that he even existed. Ellie's been living a fantasy life by sending messages and pinterest boards to Mac's brothers phone knowing that they went undelivered...at least until Mac turns it on. Almost instantly Mac is intrigued by Ellie and will stop at nothing to make her his...
I'm not even in the slightest bit ashamed to say that I read this one release day (dropping the book I was reading at the time to do so). There's just something about Huss' writing that makes you really want to know what she's released now, and I had to wait ages to read Rock because of my Lent against buying books, so Mr.Perfect got the immediate reading treatment!
I loved Ellie! She was quirky and unique and she wasn't afraid to own it. Her little quirks and outbursts often had me laughing and they really helped me identify with her. I think it was also her fantasies and how they weren't massively over the top, instead they were just really sweet and normal. It humanised her.
The chemistry between Ellie and Mac was there from the start, though there was also the other level of them not quite looking at it in a just physical way (though at some points they both appeared to be a little bit clueless about it! But for me the two of them worked amazingly well as a couple.
There wasn't as much suspense in Mr Perfect as there has been in Huss' other contemporary books, and the darker elements are missing to some extent, but that gives this book (and the future books in the series) a different feel to them and I liked that.
Even if this wasn't Huss then I'd be reading the next book!
