Review of Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines

Review of Simple Perfection by Abbi Glines


Synopsis:  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?

Review:   I loved Woods' story.  I fell in love with Woods in the Too Far series and Twisted Perfection.  I have been waiting to hear more about Woods and Della, so I was so happy when Simple Perfection was released!  This book picks up where Twisted Perfection leaves off.  Woods and his mother are not getting along (gee, who didn't see that coming) and his ex-fiancee' is a crazy loon who continues to cause Woods problems.  Woods tries to protect Della, but instead of allowing her to sprout wings and live life, Woods ends up smothering Della until she feels like she is ruining his life causing her to run from Rosemary.  Della learns a lot during her time away, including some information that will forever change her life.  Just when things in Rosemary start looking up, tragedy strikes leaving everyone devastated.  FINALLY Della is able to be the strong person for Woods.  We get to see a brief peek of Grant, who is all screwed up over Harlow.  I am so thankful that Della left Rosemary and found part of herself that had been missing for entirely too long.  The weak, fragile Della is gone. THANK GOODNESS! The whole whiny, needy routine was exhausting me and I wanted to strangle Della.  I am thankful that her time away from Rosemary brought some new people into her life.  Thanks to Braden and Woods, I think Della may finally be able to find happiness - and I think Woods is finally accepting his place running his father's company and is finally standing up for himself.  Both Della and Woods are finding themselves and growing as individuals and as a couple.  The ending is no cliffhanger, however I still want to know more about Woods and Della's story...I was left feeling like there should have been more.
