Product Description

Amazon Review

Jaine Bright and three close friends share dinner one night and during casual conversation, create a list of qualifications for Mr Perfect--some logical, some hilariously funny, some racy. Within days, their tongue-in-cheek wish list of attributes for the perfect man has been leaked to the press and the resultant publicity is overwhelming. Coworkers, TV crews and reporters barrage the quartet with comments and criticism.

As if Jaine doesn't have enough to cope with, she has a new neighbour who she suspects is a criminal. She's relieved to learn that her neighbour is really an undercover cop, but she's still wary--because smart, sexy Sam Donovan handles her sharp witticisms with easy humour, and Jaine suspects that he may threaten her heart. What Jaine doesn't know is that she's about to need Sam desperately for something other than romance because her circle of friends is in big trouble. Unfortunately, that list of qualifications for Mr Perfect has touched off a madman's rage. All of their lives are threatened and some of them are going to die, maybe all of them, if Sam can't stop the unknown killer.

Mr Perfect brings to readers the quintessential Linda Howard hero, whose straightforward, "me Tarzan, you Jane" attitude plays well with a smart, witty heroine. The rapid-fire dialogue between the two is downright hilarious at times, even when the two are about to steam up the windows and burn up the sheets. It's difficult to balance this kind of humour and sensuality with edgy suspense, but Howard manages it with aplomb. If you enjoyed Heart of Fire and Dream Man, you're going to love this latest novel. It's drop-dead wonderful. --Lois Faye Dyer, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read this on an aeroplane over the Atlantic and it was hard not to laugh out loud at some of it. A funny, witty heroine and a tough and confident guy make a good partnership in a book which has humour, romance, suspense and sex. It was the best light hearted book I have read in ages and my first introduction to this author. The women is how most of us girls like to think we are and the guy we wish we could meet, who is not threatened or put off by a confident, sexy, modern woman. Recommended if you like sexy romances with a touch of suspense but not if you are a prude!

I have read all Linda Howard's books, and I was not dissappointed with this book. Jainie and her three friends make a list of their idea of the perfect man, which is accidently published in the newspaper,then on TV and internet. A killer stalks the four friends killing them one by one... A very sexy , funny and a good twist to the end, book Well recommended read.

This was a much more enjoyable read than All The Queens Men and Now You See Her, which were way too dark for my taste. I have to like the main characters to enjoy a book. Sam is to die for, and Jaine is a great match for him! They reminded me strongly of Gray and Faith in After The Night(easily my favourite L Howard book), especially the humour, and heat, of their encounters! The only problem I had with Mr Perfect was the somewhat uneasy mix of the funny dialogue and situations with the murder story. The baddie really gave me the creeps. When I re-read the book, I can imagine myself skipping over those bits to get back into the Sam and Jaine side! That apart, I would strongly recommend Mr Perfect, every woman should have one!

Witty, sexy and fun! I never get tired of reading it. It's got enough twists and turns to put carnival rides to shame. I couldn't put the book down! I had to remind myself constantly that this was a story, which was very difficult considering the characters were very much 'real'. The main character, Jaine Bright is funny, sarcastic and speaks her mind. Her next-door neighbour, Sam is rough and masculine (sigh) and is a cop. Put those two in a bowl, add some sex appeal, a sprinkle of humour a dash of suspense and danger and what do you have? A fantastic read.

I am a big fan of Linda Howard and I enjoyed this book tremendously. Jaine and Sam are great central characters and their sparkling conversations full of wit and sarcasm and repartee were hugely entertaining. The only reason i have not rated this book with five stars is that i felt that the relationship between Jaine and Sam could have been given a little more space and depth in the book. I would have liked to read more of Sam's perspective as the relationship unfolds. Nonetheless I would recommend this book to all.

By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on 14 Feb. 2003
Format: Hardcover
Linda Howard scores a one, two knock out with this spicy thriller!! *****GOLD
Four ladies work at a company dominated by men, and so every Friday night after work they meet for supper and girl-talk. This particular Friday, men - or rather the lack of Good Men - leads the four into creating a list of their idea man.
Marcia is a forty-something with three failed marriages behind her. She loves men, their company and sex, so is currently living with an out of work Brick. TJ, thirty-something, is married to the childhood sweetheart who is likely having an affair. She wants a child, but he refuses. Beautiful Luna, twenty-something is head over heels in love with a heel, a NFL
quarterback who likes parties and women too much. And razor-shape mind and tongued Jaine, thirty-something, and a veteran of three failed engagements.
So over a few drinks, they come up with a list of all the qualities of the perfect man, like faithfulness, honesty and something that says size DOES matter!! Naturally, later a tipsy Marcie shows another woman at work The List, and suddenly it is on the bulletin board, going through emails, and then the news local and national are picking up it.
And the men around these ladies are not happy campers. One man in particular is very upset.
Janie is furious with Marcie, but has other things in her life to worry about. She just bought a new house, her mother and father are away on a vacation of a lifetime - her mother leaving precious BooBoo kitty and her father his precious Shelby (car for all you non babyboomers). BooBoo kitty is shredding the couch cushions, her sister Shelly is mad because Mum left Jaine the cat, and her brother David is mad at her because Dad left the Ford Cobra with little sister!!

This book is another brilliant offering from Linda Howard and one of her very best.
Jaine is dynamite and really, really likeable. Sam is so hot he's off the charts and their chemistry is sexy, sweet and smoking hot.
The murder mystery stayed enthralling right to the very end.
Bravo💖

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were fun, the story enticed me in and held my attention and I was never quite sure that I'd figured it out until it was revealed at the end. I would definately recommend it!
