When rock star Jeremy Jameson wanders into the bar Reg Moore is working at, the pair fall into easy conversation. Reg recognizes the musician but can tell that the man is looking for some much needed anonymity, so just acts his usual laid back, friendly self. At first, Jeremy thinks the barman can't have recognized him, he's so used to getting a reaction, but he has to admit it's nice to be treated as just a regular guy for once.

They hit it off, and Jeremy finds himself talking more with Reg in one night than he has with anyone else in a long time. There is just something about the guy, and before he knows it, Jeremy is inviting Reg on his upcoming tour. Reg has always wanted to travel the world, and the opportunity to do it with such cute company has Reg jumping at the chance. As for Jeremy, he has never been able to relax and be himself around someone like he can with Reg, and having him by his side to ground him and keep his ego in check is just what the doctor ordered. Jeremy's relationship history is rocky at best however, and it's not long before past failures have him counting down the days until Reg gets bored with him and the rock star lifestyle. Will Reg be able to persuade the talented superstar that he has fallen for the man behind the legend?

Perfect Imperfections is a very enjoyable read, with entertaining characters who are immediately likeable. I read this book on a long haul flight and it was the perfect way to wile away the hours. I recommend to any fan of the genre as it has a really engrossing storyline and some scorching scenes between Jeremy and Reg. Personally, Reg is my favorite character, as he is relaxed and easy going, but focused on making Jeremy happy – a dream come true to me. Jeremy is anything but the stereotypical rich, young, spoiled brat rock star. Through Reg we get to dig under the surface to see that Jeremy is kind, gentle and much in need of love. Of course, he is far from perfect, and I love how Reg can accept all of the musician, imperfections and all. What's even better, he helps Jeremy accept them too. The author did a good job of teasing me, testing my patience as our two guys figure each other out, and the ups and downs of being famous were also interesting to explore.
