Review – The Perfect Bastard by LK Collins

TPB cover

Review graphic

This story was not at all what I expected it to be. Single dads are the current “thing”, the latest hot fad that seems to be popping up everywhere. Roan Reddick could be like any other man trying to do the right thing by his family while also trying to do his sexy thing on the side and keep it hidden. But I was wrong. This single dad was so much more. This man is unlike any hero that LK has ever written. This story has a different feel than anything LK has offered and is a wonderful show of her talent and versatility.

Roan is a broken man but hiding it as well as he can. He’s tempermental and hardworking. A brilliant engineer and shrewd businessman. He’s determined to give his two girls everything but knows that he can’t give them the most important thing – their mother. That doesn’t stop him though, but one night he takes something for himself. One night he takes Mia Cavalano, his best friend’s little sister, and finds solace for himself. It was wrong and he knows it. Still that one moment of indulgence changes his life and Mia’s. So much so that Mia opts to leave Boston, Roan and her broken heart behind to go to college and start over.

But Mia can’t pass up an opportunity to return home when her job transfers her there. She goes back knowing that Roan and those memories of their night together await her. But there’s no way to hide what’s between these two. It’s smoldering and steaming right at the surface. They want to deny what they feel and fight a second chance at love. So many worries and insecurities – the girls’ abandonment by their mother, the fear that Chandler will not accept his sister and best friend together, the guilt that Roan feels.

I loved Roan! He’s sexy and strong, but he’s flawed and bitter. He’s dark and just so heartbroken. He’s loved and lost. He’s tired of fighting but is scared to trust what he feels for Mia. The one thing that is sure in his life are his daughters and his absolute devotion to them. Mia is fierce, feisty and absolutely perfect for Roan. She’s accepting of his flaws and understands just how much the past has hurt this man that she has known and loved most of her life.

The Perfect Bastard is one incredible second chance love story. Angsty, full of sexy moments and undeniable chemistry. The ultimate story – the real love story in my opinion – is the love that Roan has for his girls. The ups and downs that he faces with them… the defiance, tears and feelings of failure. The past is never far behind with this family. But leave it to Mia to act as a bond between Roan and his girls even when she has to face her own doubts.

Beautifully done! A story of true love and more importantly, the amazing truth that the love of family can heal broken hearts. Great job, LK!

Lost Her -- TPB


What is the one thing you shouldn’t do when your wife leaves you? Sleep with your best friend’s sister.

It’s too bad Roan Reddick never got that piece of advice before he fell into bed with Mia Cavalano. She’s smart, sassy, and sexy as hell. She’s also the only woman to flip his world upside down since his wife. And she’s leaving for college in two days, which is good considering he’s not looking for a relationship, not now, not with the agony that lives inside him from his past. But Roan can’t kick the craving he now has for Mia.

One choice changed everything.

After years away, Mia realizes they just aren’t meant to be. So she vows to keep her focus on her career and forget about the one-night stand that rocked her world so long ago. But when work transfers her back to Boston, a place that holds so many memories, she has no choice but to go. All she has to do is stick to her plan and keep her focus on work, which should be easy, right?

Besides, in a city of half a million people, how hard can it be to avoid the perfect bastard?
