Product Description

I had the perfect life.

The perfect husband.
Colin Cassidy—the incredibly talented, extremely gorgeous, and unbelievably humble star NFL quarterback.

The perfect career.
As the recently-appointed executive director for the Boston chapter of Mending Hearts, a child abuse prevention and treatment program, my daily reward was helping to keep vulnerable, innocent children from being preyed upon and destroyed. It’s all I’d wanted to do since I was a teenager.

Perfect city. Perfect car. Perfect house with the perfect view.

From the outside looking in, it was impossible to find a single flaw in my life. I had it all. Everything I’d ever wanted.

But that kind of perfection came at a price.
Demanded the ultimate sacrifice.

What happened when I discovered what I’d been missing all along?
When I began to question if the lies were worth protecting?

What if suddenly the last thing I wanted was to be perfect?

Monroe and Colin Cassidy appear to have the perfect marriage ... the perfect life that the title of Erin Noelle's new standalone alludes to, but don't be deceived. All is not what it seems.

In a masterful bit of storytelling, Erin plays the first couple of chapters straight, leading the reader to assume that they're wading into the mire of a certain kind of story, and then, with just a subtle peek behind the curtain, allowing a different perspective on what has just happened, the whole dynamic of the story changes. While from an outsiders perspective the story may not have changed at all, just that little snippet of a secret that's been diligently kept from the public, everything seems different ... but at what cost?

Before the plot twist in chapter three, this book was interesting and compelling. Clearly a great deal of meticulous research had gone into the worlds the story is set in, and beyond that its well written and infused with sweet, funny and downright quirky moments.

After chapter three though? Everything steps up not just one, but several notches, and it became riveting. The budding romance bubbling along just under the surface for the two main characters, the several subplots each cleverly woven through the main storyline all worked together to keep the narrative rushing, tumbling towards an awful, terrible and wonderful conclusion.

Lastly, I have to mention Ollie.

We all make sacrifices in life sometimes for yourself & also those around you. So there are quite a few people in this story who do this, as we are confronted with the truth early on in the piece. A perfectly constructed life for some maybe but not for all. This is so true as the years pass & life, love & feelings get in the way. Colin's life is virtually centred on his football, Monroes & Oliver's is Mending Hearts, Seths is his friends. So what happens when their worlds collide? Then we have the basis for this story, a perfectly constructed life unravels.

So your journey begins. It's not overly angsty but yet you feel for the characters, which are very well developed. Oliver is not your usual H, being the nerdy geeky hipster type. Colin seems to be more norm or is he? Monroe while beautiful is damaged. You wanted all of them to have a HEA so you'll need to read it to find out. Lol ❗️ ❓

HASH(0xacdc18f4) out of 5 stars 5 perfect life Stars! 19 February 2016
By Ms.Meesh - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Erin Noelle shatters every preconceived notion of what a perfect love story is suppose to be. In this unconventional tale, Erin captures our hearts and minds as she assaults readers with an onslaught of raw emotions. She allows her readers to absorb every facet of love, vulnerability, hope, lust, passion, and second chances that life entails. She gives her readers a story where love transcends everything. Where perfect is just a word. And the only thing that matters is the truth. And the truth is love is something that can't be undone once two hearts beat as one.

“I prepared myself for the usual anxiety I felt when encountering a one-on-one situation with an unfamiliar man, but it never surfaced. And in its place, a profound sense of fascination filled me. I bit my lip, finding myself oddly excited to be in his presence, and that was the part that unsettled me. Dr. Oliver Saxon captivated me in the most unusual manner, though I had no idea why. And I wasn’t sure I wanted to find out.”

When Erin first messaged me about what her latest book was going to be about, I was excited and yet equally nervous. I knew that I couldn't wait to read The Perfect Life. The blurb alone sold me but I knew Erin would definitely push the boundaries when it comes to this unconventional love story. And I must say, Erin did more than just that. She held her readers hostage as she gave her readers an unforgettable love story that is beyond perfect.

The perfect life. For Monroe Cassidy, she has the perfect life. She has the perfect NFL husband. The money. The fame. The good life. The perfect life. But what outsiders don't know, nothing in her life is truly perfect. Yes, she is married to a good man. A man who treats her with respect. A man that she loves but it is a different kind of love. And so Monroe was willing to continue living the perfect life that is until she meets him. Oliver Saxon.

“Yes, I was a hot-blooded male who couldn’t help but appreciate her stunning outer appearance, but it was about so much more. She was so much more.”

Oliver Saxon knew it was wrong to lust after a married woman but he couldn't help it. He was drawn to Monroe and like a moth to a flame he was willing to go after her. The lines of right and wrong were blurred and shattered as two hearts were discovering this uncharted territory of what could be the greatest love affair of their lives.

“If I could only get past the way my heart soared in my chest every time she flashed me one of her million-dollar smiles, or the way my c%*k twitched with lust-driven hope each time we accidentally touched , then I’d have nothing to worry about for the next six months. If only”

Oliver and Monroe knew their love was true. But in the eyes of the public, it was wrong. But Monroe knows the truth. The truth is a secret that Monroe and her husband have kept for years. It is a secret that would shatter every image of what it means to be perfect. For years, Monroe lived to be perfect. Will she be ready to throw out her perfect life for the perfect man that is truly meant to be hers?

“It was passionate, reckless, and just plain stupid . But I never wanted him to stop. Not ever.”

“My draw to him was undeniable, an electric charge that whirred through my body each time we touched. He made me want things I’d never before wanted. Physical things, like kisses and caresses and intimacy that used to make my skin crawl.”

The Perfect Life was a love story where its raw characters makes this book stand out from your standard romance novels. Erin Noelle writes a story where the characters are the biggest aspect of the story. Each character encompasses what it means to be vulnerable and exposed. Ms. Noelle strips each of her characters naked and in such allows readers to feel every facet of the hurt, the betrayal, the hope, and the love. In this imperfect love story, Ms. Noelle will awaken hearts, minds, and souls as she gives her readers an unforgettable story. So if you are looking for a book where readers are lost in Erin's gorgeous and heartfelt prose of what it means to let your hearts soar and really love imperfectly then this book is for you.

HASH(0xacfd1ed0) out of 5 stars Love that heals 5 classic stars 19 February 2016

When I read the prologue, I was scared, I didn’t want to read on, not because it wasn’t good. I just knew it was going to wreak emotional havoc. I raged, I screamed, I glared, I swore and then I swooned, I aww’d, I laughed, and I panted.

Monroe Cassidy had the perfect life. She was married to her best friend, Colin Cassidy – the very gorgeous and unbelievably gifted NFL quarterback, who was also her rock, her champion, her savior. Their bond was unbreakable. With her heart of gold and love for children, Roe worked tirelessly to help defenseless kids. Her dream of having her own safe haven for these abused kids made her the perfect champion for Boston’s very own, Mending Hearts. Yes, Monroe’s life was perfect. Or was it?

As the story started, I was swept away by Roe’s perfect life, I loved how Colin was with her, his love for Monroe endeared him to me. Then there was Seth, his sister, the family, Allison, the kisses on the forehead. All these were just the calm before the storm. A storm so strong that Roe was swept away, away from her perfect life.

And then there was her work at the new Mending Hearts which brought Sax into her life. Sweet heaven, that man was perfect. He was simply PERRRRFECT. The right combination of nerd and handsome. Their friendship was sweet, hilarious and exhilarating. I adored how Sax’s goofiness helped to break down Roe’s walls and build a friendship that would change their world forever. A friendship that would heal and make them both whole.

There were moments in this story where I went nuclear mad, and moments where I was a puddle of mush. Roe Cassidy's story was a perfect blend of calm before an f-5 tornado that wrecks everything in its path. At one point, I screamed OH MY GOD because I just had a feeling and my intuition was bang on. And then the whole phone call scene with Sax and his niece. I was literally rolling in my bed, I had to hold my tummy cos it was hurting so much from laughing. And then there was the sweet-hilarious moment where Sax sits with his mother and reveals his secret and the whole reference to Mo and Danny.

One of the things I love about this book is the hero, he was THE alpha, no doubt about it. He was real, honest, goofy, smart, hilarious, sweet, understanding and for me that's alpha. And then there were those perfect little quotes by Chris. Holy swooniness in heaven. WTH! Each of those words hit the chords seamlessly in my heart because they were in perfect harmony with the chapters. Erin Noelle has written an incredibly perfect story.

When the truth about Roe’s past comes out, how she met Colin, and their life together, I was left feeling there was hope. Because there is light to be found even in the darkest of situations. Then there was Seth and his role in Roe and Colin’s lives. Allison’s little heartbreak and then the whole Saxon family story.

My heart was full and ready to burst, I was mad yet happy and giddy, far from the girl who was scared at the beginning to read on. And then the whole thing blew up.

When your life is perfect, can you really trust the people closest to you? Because the darkness is just waiting to strike you're perfect ray of light. I cried after I was done reading. It was a major freaking touchdown that beat all touchdowns. Thank you, Erin Noelle, for Seth, Colin, Jojo, Roe and more importantly, Sax.

WOW!!!! That's the first thing that comes to my mind after reading this amazing story. A perfect life is the perfect name for this. Monroe Cassidy is one very lucky lady. She's married to Colin " The Clutch" Cassidy Quarterback for the New England Patriots'. They are both are beautiful and rich. But what the outside word doesn't know that behind their closed doors they both hide very deep secrets.
Erin took 2 taboo subjects and wrote them with greatness

The Perfect Life couldn't be a more perfect title for this book! Things are not always what you think and to not take life for granted. This was such a great read the friendship, love and headache you have it all. It's true people only see what's on the outside not on the inside and Erin did a great job showing that through her writing. Take a chance cause you never know where it might lead.

By ANJasper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am a big Erin Noelle fan and will read anything this woman puts out. She has the uncanny ability to write anything from humor to gut crushing angst to scenes so steamy you need to fan yourself. And The Perfect Life is no exception to her winning formula. The intro's of each chapter only added to the impact of what was taking place. I was instantly swept into the whirlwind life of Colin and Monroe. Both do-gooders with big secrets that they're willing to protect at all costs. One of the biggest jaw droppers happened pretty early on and had my head spinning.

I loved Monroe and her big, soft, giving heart. Her choices are her own and she makes them with the best interest of others at the forefront of her mind. And just as her dream is on the cusp of coming true, another twist in her seemingly wonderful world throws everything off its axis. It also brings the nerdy but sexy Oliver Saxon into her life. Their first meeting was sweet, flirty and fun. But there was this underlying tension that they both felt the moment their eyes locked and it shook them both to their core.

Oliver was such a good guy! I liked him from the start. His kindness and how he gave himself to the center. But it was his inner battle over his feelings for Monroe and how he didn't want to be "that guy" which made him all the more likable. The fact that he was hot as all get out and good with his mouth and fingers (you'll see what I mean) didn't hurt either. Their relationship and all that it entails is something neither of them thought they would ever have. Both Monroe and Oliver's pasts are far from ideal and when those details were revealed my eyes were misty.

Of course, in true Erin Noelle fashion, the big turn comes just when I think everyone is going to get the happiness they deserve. I really wanted to jump into my kindle and shake the someone that caused all the unnecessary trouble. My heart ached for Monroe and I was angry for her too. She had taken such strides and worked past so much of her fears and then for that to happen- just heartbreaking. I liked the way Colin finally stepped up and risked it all for the one he loves the most. That being said, things seemed to warp up pretty swiftly. I wanted a touch more of the fallout and the events that took place shortly thereafter. However, that is just me and my curious brain and what I want in no way detracts from the overall wonderfulness of this story (and hopefully they'll be coming at some point). This book is full of humor, heartbreak and hope. The Perfect Life shows that there is no such thing as perfection. But love, especially Colin, Monroe and Oliver's, knows no fear and will always find a way to be with the one it wants.
