Perfect 10 by Erin McCarthy
Katrina’s Lesson in Social Media Disasters--or How Technology Can Bite You In The A**
Katrina Phillips is an expert social media manager. But that doesn’t mean she can’t make mistakes. Horrible, hide-in-your-closet-forever mistakes... like accidentally syncing her BootyBook app with her online profiles.
Blammo. Now everyone in the world can see who Katrina has dated and how they rated in appearance, sexual performance, and (OMG) detailed descriptions of their manly parts! Now her phone is blowing up with irate exes—and an out-of-the-blue text from the only guy who came close to a perfect score...
Katrina has had a thing for Drew Jordan since forever ago, even if a booze-fuelled one-nighter did destroy their friendship. So why is he suddenly texting her now—and is it because she rated his Sexy Staff Of Manliness as “magnificent”? Now the only way to satisfy her curiosity is to reunite with Drew... and rate him all over again!

I've fallen behind on my Goodreads reading challenge lately. According to my challenge, I'm doing okay, but personally I'm not at the amount read that I'd like to be at by this point in the year. Therefore, I decided to read a few of the shorter books that have been on my TBR for a while. I decided to start with Perfect 10, which has been on my TBR since it first came out. It was an enjoyable read for as short as it was.
Perfect 10 was my first Erin McCarthy book. After reading it, I think I'd like to read more books by her. I loved her witty, snarky sense of humor. Her characters were very sarcastic and had me cracking me, especially Katrina. I loved how awkward she was. It's something I can definitely identify with. I also loved how calm she was, even in the face of personal disaster. I'm not sure I could have went through the public embarrassment that she did, and the business fallout, without losing it.
All of that being said, I also have a few problems with Perfect 10. I thought the book was over the top cheesy at times. There were several times that I found myself rolling my eyes at something Drew said, or a situation they got into. So many of their problems could have been solved by just communicating better, something that is a pet peeve of mine in books. I also wish the book was just a little bit longer. The ending felt very rushed, and abrupt. There were quite a few problems that Katrina and Drew hadn't solved by the end of the book, which drove me crazy.
Even though I had some problems with it, I thought Perfect 10 was an enjoyable book. Reading it made me want to read more of Erin McCarthy's books when I get through my current TBR. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun romance that can be read quickly. I think this would be a perfect book to read on a commute, or waiting in an office. All total, it took me less than an hour to read.
I give Perfect 10: 3/5.
