We have a brand new synopsis for Perfect For You. Please can this be used for all tour material.
Seventeen-year-old Meg Flannigan isn’t very self-confident, but what girl would be after her sophomore-year boyfriend dumped her by making out with another girl in front of her locker?
Now a senior, Meg catches the eye of not one, but two gorgeous guys at school. Sounds good, right? What girl wouldn't want to be in Meg's shoes? One cute boy happens to be her boyfriend, and the other? Well, he wants to be. And Meg? She't torn between Ash, the boy she's been with for nearly five months, and Noah who is pretty irresistible.
But Meg is playing with fire. Pitting two boys against one another, even if she doesn't intend to, could end badly if she isn't careful. PERFECT FOR YOU is a teen romance from bestselling author Ashelyn Drake, where one girl will risk everything to find her perfect match.
Meg has some baggage that she is dealing with. I think it’s incredibly important to how she acts in the story. There were times that I didn’t necessarily like her but I understood. Meg is someone who has been cheated on before and I think that if you have not lived that experience it’s not as easy to get if you have. When a normal relationship ends you kind of signs. Plus it’s just different because there is not that extra layer of hurt like when someone cheats on you. Lots of times with cheating it feels like you are completely blindsided and it completely shatters your heart because you might think everything is good and then what you thought was going on was all lies. See it’s even hard to explain. Being cheated on is something that sticks with you and takes time to get over because there is some other person in your head whispering. “You didn’t see the signs last time, maybe this is a sign” or “You thought everything is great but it wasn’t are you sure you know who they are talking to”. It’s terrible. I think sometimes we do damage to ourselves then the actually cheating did initially. Also there are triggers that remind you of it as well. Okay so I’ve gone completely off the trail but I think it’s important to understanding Meg’s characters.
So we’ve got the guys who we meet at the beginning of the book. Ash is Meg’s boyfriend, they have been dating for almost 5 months. Sweet, sensitive and understanding for the most part. Then there is Noah, the boy Meg crushed on for 2 years and who has now taken an interesting in her. Also sweet and caring but he has that edge to him that borderlines on bad boy. Then there is Liz, Stacey and Derrick.
Grayson is Meg’s best friend and at first I wasn’t sure if I liked her but by the end she really proved herself to me. When I was in high school I remember friendship being like dating. If you start hanging out with someone else too much then the friend gets jealous. I like how Meg and Grayson’s friendship shows a real high school friendship.
I think I might have rambled quite a bit but I really did like this story. I just really like how everything developed. It’s definitely the best love triangle I’ve ever read because it makes sense to me, it also feels like something that would happen in high school. It’s a face paced addicting read too so I cruised through it. I think if you want a unique love triangle contemporary read this would be good for you. I emphasize the unique so you are not scared off by the love triangle part.
