Sarah's Review: A PERFECT TEN (The Forbidden men, #5)

Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It'll be fun, they said. 

I know I've closed myself off in a major way over the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It's past time I try to live again or just give up altogether. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I'm standing outside Oren Tenning's bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he'd probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten.

Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye.

Oren Tenning is the stereotypical football jock/man-whore.  We've learned about his promiscuous ways in previous Forbidden Men books, but this is his time to shine.  He’s had a thing for Caroline Gamble since the day he laid eyes on her.  She was in a bad way and he knew he had to have her.  Unlucky for him, her brother is his best friend and will stop at nothing to keep them apart.  After traumatic revelations on his part, he's able to work out some of his demons and go forth with what he truly wants in life.

Caroline Gamble is still recovering from a very traumatic experience that landed her in the custody of her older brother and a new student at Ellamore University.  She's making friends and coming out of her shell but she really has one thing - or person - on her mind.  Oren Tenning.  He's crude, rude and the perfect man for her.  She goes out on a limb to get him and the rest is, as they say, history.

The Forbidden Men series is holding steady as my all-time favorite series.  Linda Kage keeps her story lines fresh and fun, always.  I didn't think one of her stories could top Quinn and Zoey’s in With Every Heartbeat, but then she goes and does it with A Perfect Ten.  It's heartfelt and hilarious and I had a few cries in there too.  The perfect blend of emotions for a new adult romance, in my opinion.  Caroline's movie knowledge was amazing and her filthy mind keeps right up with Ten's.  Loved this and cannot wait to meet Knox Parker in Worthless!
