A Perfect Mess by Zoe Dawson

Title: A Perfect Mess
Author: Zoe Dawson
Series: A Perfect Secret
Publication Date: August 5th 2013
Publisher: Blue Moon Creative
Source: E-ARC

I know what you did last summer.
Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.
Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.
Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.
Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.
As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

My Review

I received this as an ARC from the author in exchange for a review. 

This book has completely reached my expectations. I mean, I love the cover from the first time I saw it, and then when I read the book, I couldn't stop. At all.

Aubree Walker went away from her home town, Hope Parish, when something happened a year ago. Now that she's back, secrets are starting to stir up. Aubree is the sort of characters that I like, she's brave and strong, she stands up for herself and sometimes, just sometimes, she walks away. I kind of am jealous of her. LOL! I mean, seriously, she gets to spend her time with THREE hot boys. Not one, but THREE. Haha! Aubree is really likeable as I get to know more about here. As I read on, I realised that she has a lot of problems lying on her shoulders and that she's just a girl who has to learn how to cope with these problems.

Sexy, sexy Booker Outlaw. Yes, he is sexy, I have to admit. But the best part wasn't that. It was that he was a triplet *swoon*. He's isn't one of those really bad boys that really does bad things like jump from one girl to another. That job has to handed to his twin brother, Braxton. Booker has secrets, and he believes that he might become like his father who left his family and never came back. But he really isn't like that. He fell hard for Aubree and would do anything for her. Booker had me swooning all the way through the book.

The Outlaw brothers was a great addition to the book. I mean, even hearing the name had me swooning over them. They are known as "The Unholy Trinity", since you know, they're bad boys. Booker, who's a caring and protective guy, he's quiet and unpredictable (an he's also an author!!); Boone, he's a landscape architect but he's still reckless and liked living on the fact lane. And Braxton, he was the playboy and the sweet-talker. And he also cooks!! I love a man that can cook! The three of them were the bad boys in town, but inside, they really weren't. They are all kind and caring. They love each other and they protect everyone that they care about.

I would've rated this book as five stars, but 3/4 through the book, it became a bit predictable. I mean, I love all of the characters and the secrets that was in the story. But then as it came near the end, I could just predict everything. I wanted a surprise but there was none so that was why I gave this a 4.5.

But overall, I love the book. The plot intrigued me, the characters were all likeable, and the secrets took me in completely. I can't wait for the next one!!
