REVIEW: Perfect Together by Kristen Ashley



What can I say, that hasn't already been said about Kristen Ashley and her novels? I don't know but if you figure it out, please share. Without fail, when she releases a new book I've either pre-ordered it or I immediately download it because I know that when I begin reading it, the entire rest of the world fades away and I can disappear into whatever trouble Kristen Ashley has cooked up for her characters. In Perfect Together, Wyn and Remy, a divorced couple, realize that they really shouldn't have been divorced to begin with. They clearly love each other and decide to figure things out. The end, right? I guess so, if you want to skip over the part where they demonstrate the depth of their love and care for each other through various major life events, or if you want to ignore the observations their kids and friends so humorously make. Telling the basic plot of this story is easy; it could be done in a few sentences, but the thing that always draws me back to Kristen Ashley is all of the interactions that make the characters who they are. It's the banter, the inner monologues, and the wisdom and humor that is woven through all of that. It's also the attention to detail-the interiors of the house, the outfits and jewelry, and the quirk of a lip or an eyebrow. It's clear that Kristen Ashley is a student of human nature (and of all things fashionable) and that she strives to create characters who show us the vast range of who we are, why we are, and the potential for what we can be.

As always, I'm glad that I read it, sad that it's over, and eager for the next book.



Wyn and Remy Gastineau were perfect together…

Until, without warning, Remy walks out on their life, their love and their marriage.

Wyn is blindsided and heartbroken. It takes her years to get over the loss of Remy.

Sometime later, their children call a family meeting and Remy is acting strange. Wyn refuses to hope. Remy has moved on. She must do the same.

But she’s wrong.

Remy wants her back and he’s pulling no punches. He’s determined to do the work to piece together the marriage he shattered. Forced by circumstances to tell Wyn things he never wanted her to know, Remy reveals his tragic secrets.

As the family reels from pain long buried now laid bare, Wyn realizes instead of letting go, she has to hold tight to the man and the family they made that’s perfect together.
