How can they have a future when their past is based on a lie?
The perfect preacher’s daughter, Verity Fairchild, has something that only she and God know about and she wants to keep it that way. Her mistake was easy to keep secret when she was out of town, but now that she’s come back to Hope Parish for the summer, she comes face-to-face with the guy responsible for it all. Boone Outlaw nearly ruined everything for her and despite the fact that he’s now working at her father’s church, she’s determined to stay as far away from him as possible.
Boone Outlaw doesn’t understand Verity’s anger towards him. He barely knows her. In high school she was Holy Mary Verity and she was off limits – except in his dreams where Verity seems way too real. Most of the time he was wasted in high school, not the type of boy Verity would ever look at twice, but he can’t shake the feeling that something might have happened between them. He’s going to break his own rules to get the answers he needs straight from Verity.
What will Verity do when she finds something in Boone that she never knew existed and her perfect mistake is the only thing that could stand between them and their happiness? Will she sacrifice Boone to keep her secret?
WoooooWeeeee!!!!!!! A Perfect Mistake, book two of Zoe Dawson’s A Perfect Secret series is absolutely better than the first installment and I LOVED that book!!! Here’s the low down:
Verity Fairchild’s (aka Holy Mary Verity) return to Suttontowne is meant to be as short as is humanly possible. She fully intends to declare her intentions to her parents and then walk away no matter their response. All she has to do is get through the summer with as few complications as possible and then she will finally be free to live her life on her terms and her terms alone. For time, all is going according to plan and Verity begins to feel as if she will make it through the summer and then Boone Outlaw walks right back into her life. How will she get through a summer when she is constantly forced to interact with a man she despises right down to her very core? Better yet, can she overcome her traitorous body’s desire to run straight into the arms of a man she hates?
Boone Outlaw is a changed man though his reputation around town would suggest otherwise. Once the most reckless of the Outlaw triplets, Boone has cleaned himself up and started a landscaping business. In an effort to improve his overall reputation, Boone has volunteered his company and his own resources to the local church. His revamping of the site’s landscaping is in full swing and though he is happy with the work, he is also completely confused. Every day Verity Fairchild watches Boone work yet any time she comes near him, he can see the anger toward him rolling right off her like a tidal wave. But for the love of everything holy, he can’t figure out why.
For more than a year, Verity has hated Boone and her hatred has been based on her conviction that Boone was the asshole who spiked her drink and then never once gave her a second thought after claiming her virginity. Then, there is Boone who has lusted after and been interested in Verity since high school and cannot recall a single encounter with her that would warrant such hatred. So, in typical Outlaw fashion, Boone forces the issue and finally gets Verity to explain herself and her actions. Though he has a nasty reputation, Boone would never, ever force or drug a woman to have sex with him!! After all, more than one girl (myself included!!) has fallen prey to the Boone Swoon – no force, no cajoling and certainly no drugs necessary 🙂
Once all the cards are on the table, both Boone and Verity have to acknowledge that there is something between them and though a relationship might not be the best idea, they can’t seem to stay away from one another. For Boone, the decision is easy: he has harbored an interest in Verity for several years and now he has his chance to really get to know her. For Verity, the prospect of being with Boone and reassessing her opinion of him is far, far scarier. In order to completely and fully give herself to Boone, she has to risk everything and tell him the entire story of the night he took her virginity. Furthermore, she will have to face the wrath of her father, a man who has already driven her brother from their home because of his choices. Oh, and to make matters far, far worse for all involved, there is the crazy misguided guy who thinks Verity belongs to him, Boone’s brothers who keep reminding him (sometimes violently!) that the preacher’s daughter is off limits and, one fantastic bar fight! Certainly the relationship is worth all this drama, right?
The Bottom Line: I am hopelessly in love with Boone Outlaw and the A Perfect Secret series!! Dawson has created yet another well-written and completely engrossing story with beautifully relatable characters and a crazy and moderately suspenseful plot line. (That last part, so not a criticism!) Adding to the read are some seriously juicy naughty bits and visits and further developments from the other Outlaw boys. Yes, I was up until three a.m. with yet another Zoe Dawson novel. No. Regrets. The secrets, the drama, the naughty bits and three seriously hot boys, what’s not to love? If you are fan of light mystery/suspense, superior writing, HEAs and, triplets then I highly recommend this series to all 18+ readers.
P.S. In my mind, Boone Outlaw looks just like Hart of Dixie’s Wilson Bethel. Here’s the link to his IMDb page for your viewing pleasure: Wilson Bethel – My Boone Outlaw
