Linda Howard at her best, It is funny, suspenseful and sensual. It will be a great fast read and one story you will never forget

this was so light-weight, poor character development. nothing she has written has ever compared to After The Night for me. I sometimes find it hard to reconcile that it was the same author.

This book was absolutely awful. It totally lacked cohesion. For the first two thirds of the book, the story was written exclusively from the perspective of the heroine. Following that, perspective shifted from character to character like an ungainly pinball.

Parts of the story were decent. I did laugh a time or two--which I really value a book being able to make me do--so it was not a total waste. Unfortunately, the book was simply too poorly written for me to really get into.

I have heard great things about Linda Howard's caliber as an author. Although this book did not impress me, I like to keep an open mind about her skills as an author--seeing as how this is the only Howard book that I have read. Still, it is very unlikely that I will pick up one of her books again. I strongly suggest that anyone who is not a die-hard Linda Howard fan, but still wishes to read this book, pick it up at a library. That way, you will have saved yourself some money and foregone any guilt that you might have felt should you choose to stop reading the book part way through.

The romance between Sam and Jaine was cute. Starting out as neighbors hating each other and then turning into something more. I liked the quarters Jaine had to give people if she said a curse word. Most people know how hard it is to stop cursing even if you only say it in your mind and then you just get used to saying it.
Of course some of the words Howard used was pretty juvenile. I didn't know whether to laugh or not when Howard put the words "sticky-out part." The mystery part was though. Some books you get the first time reading it through. This one you don't. I am really going to have to follow the killer when I read this again because it was really crazy. I didn't know who the killer was until Howard actually spelled it out.
As far as the "List" goes though, that plot was pretty unrealistic. How many times have women made lists about the perfect guy? Then they become celebrities because of this? Appearing on many talk shows and even ABC, I don't think so. So if you have a hard time reading a book that isn't realistic, this isn't the book for you. I was getting a bit annoyed too but the rest of the book is really good.
Because the characters died so soon too, they were really only surface revealed. Then I was annoyed that the author killed off the women who made up with their boyfriends/husbands. Since the characters except for Jaine and Sam were flat, I didn't really care too much when they died anyway. Mostly I just said awww oh well to myself. But it was nice to see how the four girlfriends chatted and reminded me of my clique of girls.

If you're looking for a laugh-out-loud romance packed with sex appeal and suspense then this is for you. OK, so the plot is slightly unbelievable (particularly if you read a lot of crime books) and the villain may as well carry a signpost around their neck with the words 'QUIET PLEASE - SERIAL KILLER AT WORK', but cracking dialogue and fantastic characters more than make up for these problems.
Jaine Bright is just about the only heroine I've ever read who manages to come across as zany and spontaneous without also being wimpy and irritating. Jaine holds down a good job, has a great car and house, and is an independent woman happy with her life. Cue Sam Donovan, a sexy, muscular cop who happens to be her next-door neighbour and you know that you're reading Linda Howard at her best. When a killer targets Jaine and her friends it is up to Sam to protect them and track down the villain.
The chemistry between Jaine and Sam is great and the use of humour is so funny in places that you can't help but burst out laughing. There are some incredibly risqué innuendos which are just fantastic, my favourite was when Sam walks into the kitchen when Jaine and her sister Shelley are preparing a cucumber to use on Jaine's eyes. The plot bounces along at a fairly fast rate but I felt the crimes really acted as a backdrop for the romance, as Jaine and Sam find various excuses for getting 'to know each other better'.
Overall Mr Perfect is a funny and romantic novel with a great ending and likeable characters. You can't really take it seriously as a crime novel, but who cares when the book is such a perfect blend of suspense and romance?

This is the first attempt at reading Linda Howard that I have ever made. I wish I had not started with this book. She writes well, but the plot is over the top dumb. A few friends in a bar decide what qualities make the perfect man, and all of a sudden they are overnight celebrities?!? Yeah, because women in bars don't talk about what they would like from a man every single day. And the 'villian' in the story is painfully obvious from the first few chapters, before the crime even takes place. This book was so dumb that I couldn't finish it. I just skipped ahead to see if everything that I thought would happen did, and I was right. I might be willing to give this author another try, but if I do, it's gonna be a library book!
