Sarah’s books always bring a smile to my face. They’re filled with kindness, hopefulness, playfulness, and feel-good vibes. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT is no exception. The individual and couple journeys of Will and Annie were mature and healthy, and I appreciated the emphasis on clear communication and therapy in this story.
Practice Makes Perfect Book Description:
Annie Walker is on a quest to find her perfect match-someone who nicely compliments her happy, quiet life running her flower shop in Rome, Kentucky. Unfortunately, she worries her goal might be too far out of reach when she overhears her date saying she is “sounbelievably boring.” Is it too late to become flirtatious and fun like the leading ladies in her favorite romance movies? Maybe she only needs a little practice…and Annie has the perfect person in mind to become her tutor: Will Griffin.
Will–the flirtatious, tattooed, and absolutely gorgeous bodyguard–is temporarily back in Rome, providing security for Amelia Rose as excitement grows for her upcoming marriage to Noah Walker. He has one personal objective during his time in town: stay away from Annie Walker. But no sooner than he gets settled, Will soon finds himself not only breaking his rule, but tasked with far more than simply providing security.
Practice Makes Perfect Short Summary :
Returning to Rome, Kentucky was a joy for me as I was lured by the small-town romance and the chance to meet my favorite characters again. What I found was that I enjoyed this book even more than its predecessor, “When in Rome”. The chemistry between the two main characters, Annie and Will, was fantastic, and I fell for the classic bad boy-good girl trope.
Despite their apparent differences, they find themselves in a pretend relationship to help Annie find her future husband. Throughout their story, their communication and friendship blossom, and there is no unnecessary angst or misunderstandings to make the characters miserable.
Their love story is heartwarming, with Will transforming from a presumed bad boy to a caring, sweet lover boy. I found myself experiencing a range of emotions, from laughter to tears, while reading this book.
The plot revolves around Annie, who is tired of being seen as the family’s little child and wants to explore her true identity. Her sister-in-law, Amelia, suggests that she work with Will, a bodyguard and executive protection agent, to help her gain more experience in the dating arena. Will, who has a troubled past with love, helps Annie to explore her adventurous side and her true identity.
This book will leave you wanting to visit Rome, Kentucky, and become friends with its lively and caring characters. It is a feel-good read that champions clear communication, therapy, and healthy relationships. Will and Annie’s journey as individuals and as a couple is heartwarming and mature.
In summary, this book is a must-read for anyone looking for a heartwarming, feel-good romance that champions healthy relationships and open communication.
This particular story was truly perfect. The couple was exceptional and their chemistry was incredible, which created a lot of tension in the story. I must say, it was one of my favorites from Sarah Adams, and I found myself giggling and feeling like a love-struck teenager. This book had everything and it was an amazing read.
