Star quarterback Austin Lawson’s dating life is fair game to the myriad gossip bloggers. Thanks to his most recent screw up with a social media savvy super model, he’s forced to return home so that his PR team can do damage control. To help speed things along, he volunteers at Jessamine Elementary School, never dreaming he’d find the perfect solution to his image problem in Harper Bell. Sweet as anything, she’s star struck by him and agrees to date-after-date, never suspecting the real reason he wants to be with her. But as things begin to heat up between them, Austin realizes that he wants Harper for more than just a quick fix.

Harper Bell is perfectly content as a second grade teacher in the small town of Jessamine—until she meets the one man who makes her question her lack of social life. She never dreamed that sexy, hometown hero Austin Lawson would ever notice a plain-Jane like herself. And with one hot kiss, she begins to fall head over heels for him…until she learns the truth. Austin’s been using her.

Now Austin has to execute the perfect play to win back the girl of his dreams. Or will Harper bench him permanently?

NA Review My Thoughts

Love So Perfect is the 5th book in the Lawson Brothers series by Marquita Valentine, but each of the books can be read as a standalone. They each focus on, you guessed it, a different Lawson Brother. Love So Perfect is Austin’s story. Austin is the first Lawson brother that I have had the pleasure of meeting and I have to say that I fell head over heels in love with him. (Well, him and Harper, I guess. But mostly him.) Love So Perfect is a classic contemporary sports romance. Not to mention very current with the older woman, young man thing going for it.

Austin is back in town trying to play PR control while he cleans up his image after a recent scandal in the media. Insert “good girl” Harper Bell, and Austin think she is just what he needs to reinvent himself. I found Love So Perfect to be a really cute read. I loved the characters. Harper is such a sweet girl, with just a side of sass. And Austin is clearly taken with her. Austin started off with his own selfish agenda, but I soon found myself completely swept up in how genuine he seemed. It was clear to me that this was the real deal for him. And I couldn’t help love him for that. Their romance was a bit predictable, but in a very satisfying way. It was just what I wanted.

The small town setting really added to the charm of Love So Perfect. I want to go back and read about all of the other Lawson Brothers now. Marquita Valentine does such a great job with her books. I know that the romance is always going to be great. I always walk away from her stories happy, content and feeling just a bit sappy.

Bottom line: If you like your romances on the sweet side, and you need your dose of cute “cheese”, this is the book for you. People that love small town settings will eat up Harper and Austin in Love So Perfect.
