#Throwback: Perfect

 Jaded billionaire Jeff Mayfield loves only what his money and power can buy, but the Fates have plans for him. First a player in Jeff’s casino hits a huge jackpot and things turn hectic.Then, in the middle of the chaos, Jeff lays eyes on the unbelievably sexy Cam Smith—Cupid in his human form.

Seized by lust, Jeff makes a move, only to find himself on the receiving end of a blistering wave of sexual intent. Cam disassembles Jeff’s self-image and puts it back together upside down. But Jeff isn’t the only one struggling with control. Cam’s alter ego is Jealousy, and if he loses his composure, the consequences will be deadly
I think I actually enjoyed Perfect even more than I enjoyed Priceless. Like the first book, much of Jeff’s story takes place over the span of a few days. This time, however, Cupid left his arrows at home and took a much more hands-on approach with Jeff’s love life. Literally. It seems that the challenge that Jeff issued about not needing love was more than our god of love could resist. While the no-love challenge may have gained Cupid’s attention, it was recognizing Jeff as his mate that made Cupid even more determined to make this match, arrow free.

I loved the “powers” that Ms. Church included for Cupid. Admittedly, Cupid was never one of the gods I was that interested in when I delved into mythology in my youth, so I’m not sure which abilities would be consistent with his mythology and which are of the author’s creation, but it really doesn’t matter because ultimately it was how Cupid wielded his powers in his search for love. While Cupid did considerable research on Jeff before becoming Cam, he used the info he gleaned to predict Jeff’s responses to him rather than trying to trick Jeff into falling for him. Well that and maybe to get Jeff’s attention initially and to interfere with interlopers, but Cupid didn’t once consider using an arrow to influence Jeff’s feelings toward him. Rather, Cupid became Cam and pursued Jeff all on his own, seduced him with his naturally sexy ways (boy did he ever!), and won his man. But don’t let me lead you to believe that Cam and Jeff’s courtship was an easy one, because it wasn’t. We are talking about gods after all, and even the God of Love has higher-ups he has to answer to… or face the consequences. Perfect proved to be the perfect combination of mythology, mischief, foreplay, hot man-on-man action, interfering gods, Jealousy, romance, and love. And with the groundwork Ms. Church laid out for Zygi’s story, let’s just say that I’m glad Pure is already waiting for me on my Kindle.
