Book Review: Craving Perfect

Craving Perfect

by Liz Fichera
Release date: 25th July 2011
Publisher: Carina Press
Pages: 234 (ARC NetGalley)

Summary from Goodreads:

Grace Mills craves being perfect almost as much as she craves raspberry scones. In fact, her life would be perfect if only she could lose ten more pounds, if only the pastry café she co-owns with her sister would turn a profit, if only the hottest guy at the gym would look her way...

And then "if only" comes true. Grace is suddenly straddling two lives: an alternate reality where she's a size two, weather girl celebrity and being chased by the hot guy. Only Mr. Gorgeous isn't very nice.

In her other life, she's starting to realize her sister is less than happy running the family café, and hunky Carlos, the gym's janitor, seems to have a secret crush on her. Maybe there's more to him than meets the eye...

Grace is living two lives and it's beginning to cost her. Is there a way to pick one...that's perfect?

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

I'm a sucker for love stories, that's the true and Craving Perfect was a wonderful book for me. I had TONS of fun, and I mean, really, tons and tons of fun.
The main character, Grace, was a really sweet and annoying girl that made me laugh and hit my pillow a few times.
You see, Grace loves to bake pastries and cones, she simple loves to do that. And of course she loves to eat them as well, but most of them she keep them to sell them at their Café she and her sister own. But at the same time she wants to loose those ten pounds that are annoying her. And since her sister insists to go to a gym they do, and there she meets the love of her life, a handsome and sexy man named Max that looks down at her and ignores her every single time she looks at him.
Sorry, did I say love of her life? My bad, he is an idiot. Period.
Bur Grace, for some reason I can't understand yet, yearns for a single touch, a look (even when he looks right through her she imagines he is been shy!!!) of Max. Let me tell you, I hate when a woman acts like that, but the book was so good and the inner dialogues that Grace had with herself made the book a wonderful read.

But despite the fact that Grace is blind our real hero is not. Carlos, a sexy, sweet and very very handsome guy that works at the gym finds Grace really pretty and cute, even her clumsiness is a good thing for him. And Carlos is far more that what Grace thinks...

But things for Grace and her sister are not going really well and somehow every single time that Grace runs in a treadmill at the gym and manages to fall, literary, of it, she founds herself inside a different body, a woman named Callie who is perfection personified: beautiful, with a size two, a flat stomach, a long blond smooth hair and beautiful skin. And on top of that Max Kramer is her fiancé!
Her life is about to take a real twist... a twist that only she can choose.

Since i finished the book within a day I can say that I really enjoyed it.

Alaiel's Rating:

If you really like it, you can find it here:


  1. Thanks for your review. This looks like a great book.

    I think we all imagine our lives would be perfect if only... And it's human to think the grass is greener... Both the above are not necessarily true.

    Why is it that guys/girls fall for the loser that is not worth the time/effort and overlook Ms/Mr Right.

  2. Sounds like a fun and relaxing read. I think I'm gonna try to get my hands on this book and read it.


Something to share? (cheese would be awesome!) I love to read your comments :]
