The Perfection Series by Abbi Glines - #review
Twisted Perfection (Perfection #1)

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

My Review...

Let's start with how excited I was to read Wood's story since he stole my heart in the Too Far series.

Here we meet Della who is a wounded bird trying to fly.

Woods who is the ultimate fixer meets Della whom to start with he only wants a one night stand as his life has no room for more.  After he sleeps with Della he can't get her out of his head but they both need to move on.

However fate has another idea and brings these two back together but for Della once burnt makes her a bit skeptical with Woods.

For Woods, Della is so much more than sex and he wants to be with her as well as fix her but to do this he has to give up everything.  Is she worth it?
"I'll be whatever she needs me to be. I can't walk away from her; I tried. I'm hooked. And now I'm about to lose my mind because I don't know how to help her. I just need to go find her and hold her the rest of the damn day. I need to know she's okay."
For Della it is so much more than a bit wounded she is broken almost to the point of no repair but with the strength of Tripp, Braden and Woods she gives into to love.

But is love strong enough to keep these two together for the long haul?

Simple Perfection (Perfection #2)

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?

My Review...

Woods fights for Della and wins but his new life and her issues take a toll on their relationship.

This story is about Woods learning to let go and believe in what's right instead of fixing everything.

It is also about Della's journey in finding her inner strength.

With her journey I wanted to slap her silly with the way she handles her issues. I know I sound like a heartless cow but it was so frustrating. I know she has a shitload of baggage and she has to deal with it on her own but sometimes the whole martyr storyline drives me bat shit crazy.

With the help of Tripp and Braden and the patience of Woods she is able to fight for what she wants and needs....Woods.

Finally a HEA..Oh ! Wait nope here we have more cray cray with Angelina and Wood's mother as well as the crazy WTF moment with JACE!!!

Why??????? Do that? Argh!!! It still makes me sad.

In the end Woods and Della find strength in one another and fight to make it work.
"...She is my perfection. She holds my heart in her hands. When she hurts it brings me to my knees. There is no way to explain to you the way I feel about her. Just understand that I will not allow anyone to hurt her again. I won't forgive that. I lose a piece of my soul when I see her in pain."
Finger's crossed that Tripp get's his own story and I'm excited to find out more with Grant, Harlow and the biggest bitch of all bitches...Nan.
