One night changed Elona’s life forever. Once she wakes from her coma to realize her best friend didn’t make it, Elona basically puts her life on hold so she can deal with the tragedy. After taking 3 years of online classes, she decides it’s time to broaden her wings and finish her courses in person at the college.
Michael was ready to finish his final year of classes and take his place in the family business. He’s not looking for a relationship, but when he sees Elona, he immediately knows she is the one. He just needs to convince her of that fact.
Both Elona and Michael have tragic events in their past that have shaped them and brought them to where they are today . . . but will their newfound love be enough to allow them to leave the past behind and create a new life together?
A Life No Less than Perfect is author Angela K Parker’s debut novel. It’s a very sweet contemporary romance and would be appropriate for young adults to enjoy. While it is love at first sight, the characters both move slowly towards their ultimate goal.
Elona is a sweet, but somewhat naive young woman. Because she sheltered herself after the accident, she isn’t quite prepared for the attention Mike is ready to lavish on her. Michael realizes his love for El almost immediately, but understands he must take things slowly to allow her to catch up to him emotionally. He also has to deal with the hurt from his past to fully accept El in the present.
I also enjoyed watching both characters interact with their families. Elona is an only child while Michael has many younger siblings. While their families are complete opposites, both sets of parents are incredibly supportive of their children and the interactions between Mike and his parents and El and hers add a lot of depth and understanding to the plot.
Angela K. Parker created a sweet story with her characters reaching for their own brand of perfection and a happy ever after. 4 stars.
