Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols | YA Book Reviews - […] It’s quite possible I would have enjoyed Harper and Brody’s story more if there had been more of a slow build, if they really worked to get to know one another, and if the tension has simmered just a little more. Or maybe I didn’t connect because I have aged out of Echols’ work? I probably would have given them the stink eye more than once because their fleeting decisions made little sense to me and there was so much back-and-forth I want him, I don’t want him, I want him. The bandaid was ripped from my reading-skin a few too many times, leaving me feeling very unattached and without much left to adhere to afterward. My recommendation if you’re in the mood for a great, steamy Echols’ read is to revisit Such a Rush. […]

Ginger @ GReads! - THIS. All of this. Holy dang. Estelle, you have out done yourself. This is by far my favorite review you’ve given a book. I know we’ve talked in length on this one, and I could probably talk another million years about it. It’s just SO. DANG. GOOD. I hope you’ve sent it to Magan & she’s devouring it now as I type this. Good lord, you’ve made me want to read it for a THIRD TIME.
