What made the experience of listening to Perfect Imperfections the most enjoyable?
This is such a beautiful character lead story with incredibly real and likeable main characters that are so well written the reader/listener genuinely feels like they know the men! The story develops so beautifully from a random meeting to genuine warm friendship that eventually becomes more, once Jeremy discovers things he never knew about himself! Jeremy is a Rock Star born to famous parents who grew up in the glare of the media but never had a real friend, and Reggie is just a regular guy who is everything Jeremy needs. Reggie is such an amiable guy, everyone should have a Reggie in their lives.
A thoroughly lovely book, narrated beautifully by Charlie David, this is a real feel-good story!

When 31 year old Rock superstar Jeremy Jameson steps into a seedy bar in Munds Park, Arizona it turns out to be the best thing to ever happen to him.
Jeremy is not your typical “rock star”…there’s no drugs, or scores of sexual exploits, or crazy publicity antics…he’s quiet, a bit shy, and, most of all, lonely. When he starts up a conversation with bartender, Reggie Moore, he finds himself relaxed and engaged and having a great time. After closing down the bar, ending up on Reg’s couch for the night, and a few more drinks an idea takes root: Reg would love to travel more and Jeremy is sick of going out on the road alone, or with women who don’t understand it’s not all premieres and glitzy events…so Jeremy offers Reg the opportunity to become Jeremy’s pretend boyfriend for seven months of travel, companionship, and adventure while Jeremy plays his latest world tour dates.
Reg isn’t your typical bartender, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a degree in Accounting, but since an office job was killing him, he returned home to work and save enough money to go travel the world. Reg understands that Jeremy doesn’t want a real boyfriend, but a friend, someone to spend with who wouldn’t have ulterior motives or make constant demands. The offer is amazing but Reg makes two requests: ask again once Jeremy sobers up and to give him a year instead of seven months.
It was sad that he felt he had to essentially hire that function out, but Reg wouldn’t complain. Jeremy was cool, his music was amazing, and touring the world would be a dream come true. “I hope so, man,” he said. “That’d be awesome.”
“It would.” Jeremy nodded. “No more lonely nights. No more boring flights with nobody to talk to. No more girls who say they want to be with me when they don’t even like me, and all they really want is a leg up.” He sighed. “No more.”
This story is hands down one of my favorite books of all time. I played a game with a friend where I was asked to name three books I would want with me if I was stranded on a deserted island, and Perfect Imperfections easily made the list. Why? Because, to me, it’s perfect. There’s no angst, no miscommunication, tons of humor, and hot sexy times. It’s fluffy crack.
For me the only thing that was missing was an audio version.
If you asked me for a list of my favorite narrators you would absolutely find Charlie David on that list…so finding out he was doing to the narration for one of my favorite books?
I hoped the narration would live up to the love I had for the book and wasn’t surprised when Charlie David gives another absolutely wonderful performance! The characters, the humor, the sexiness – it all comes through perfectly.
You want to know how I know this audio is fantastic? I immediately replayed the audio as soon as it finished the first time.
The story is absolute fluff-tastic sweetness and cuteness, and when coupled with Charlie David’s phenomenal performance, it’s absolutely unforgettable. Perfect Imperfections…I love you!!
