Perfecting Kate

Perfecting Kate
By Tamara Leigh

About the book:
Kate’s Creed: Thou shalt embrace singledom and be unbelievably, inconceivably happy.


Kate Meadows is a successful San Francisco artist looking for a nice, solid Christian man. So when not one, but two handsome bachelors enter her orbit in rapid succession, her head is spinning just a bit. Michael Palmier is a hunky and famous makeup artist who actually seems to be flirting with her–rather than her physically flawless housemate, Maia. Trouble is, he keeps handing her business cards from various beauty professionals and plastic surgeons. Is he trying to stamp out every last bit of self-esteem she has?

Then there’s Dr. Clive Alexander, good-looking enough to be mistaken for Brad Pitt, who sends Kate’s pulse skittering every time he comes near. Too bad he’s only interested in her work–and doesn’t think she’s much to look at. It’s enough to send a girl running for her paint-splattered, relaxed-fit jeans and swearing off men altogether! But after undergoing a makeover from Michael’s staff, Kate can’t be oblivious to the admiring glances men throw her way. Maybe she should try contacts…consider some fancy dental work…and you know, that mole really could stand to go. The question now is, what kind of work will Kate do on herself…and who exactly is she trying to please?

My thoughts:
While trying to find confidence in the way she looks and determined to be a content single, Kate Meadows meets Clive Alexander. He's everything she could want. And he's equally as crazy about her with one exception, she drastically change her appearance. Is it worth it?

I loved how lighthearted and honest "Perfecting Kate" was while also being deep and thoughtful. Some may I say it was shallow but let be honest who hasn't had a ton of Kate's thoughts? I ended really admiring all Kate learned through her journey.
