Review - Peri in Progress by Cat Lavoie

SUMMARY
You know what they say about best-laid plans…

After a disastrous thirty-first birthday party where she gets stood-up by a man she isn’t supposed to be dating, Peri McKenna decides it’s time to change what hasn’t been working—which is pretty much everything. Her love life is going nowhere fast, she’s bored to tears by a job that makes her the office pariah, and the lifelong junk food addiction that used to be somewhat quirky is now positively problematic. To top it all off, her newly-purchased home is falling apart and wishful thinking hasn’t done much to fix the leaky roof.

It’s time be an adult now that she’s officially ‘thirty-something.’
But when the first step of Peri’s self-improvement plan backfires, she starts to wonder if change might be overrated.

Enter Milo Preston, an up-and-coming chef who’s in town to take over a local restaurant. When Peri and Milo begin working together, she finds it hard to ignore his easy charm and captivating emerald-green eyes. Since Milo is her best friend’s estranged brother, Peri has to keep reminding herself that he is completely off-limits. As they grow closer, Milo introduces Peri to new foods, the joy (and pain) of jogging, and makes her think her luck might finally be turning.

But when the past catches up with them, Peri finds herself back at square one. Will she be able to sort herself out—or will the roof cave in on her once and for all?
 


MY REVIEW

Boy this story was filled with ups and downs!  One minute I was filled with joy and the next I was in shock and a little sad to say the least.
Peri McKenna has not had the greatest of life experiences as of lately and she is starting to think she really needs to re-evaluate her life and what is important her.
Peri is secretly seeing this boy names Declan (let me just say that nothing good comes from seeing someone in secret!) and he basically denied being involved when she decided it was time to bring it out in the open..She is in shock....and to make matters worse she was suspended from her job!
This is it she decides, the sign she needs to know she needs to take her life in a new direction...a new Peri!

Junk food...a thing of the past (maybe), a new job to keep her mind off her old life and dare I say a new man?  Not sure that is a great NEW plan, but hay what does she have to lose?


Let me just say Milo is amazing, to die for really, but is he too good to be true?  I will not give away any of the sexy details, you must read and find out for yourselves!  Be prepared the scream at your book when things don't go the way you hoped they would!


WINE SELECTION

I would pair this fun read with FUNF Riesling!  Yummy and refreshing!  

MY RATING

I rate this sassy and sexy read, 5 wine glasses!  It was enticing from beginning to end and had some turns that I least expected!
