Book Review: Practice Makes Perfect by Sarah Adams

❥ Thank you for the free audiobook, PRH Audio.


Annie Walker is on a quest to find her perfect match—someone who complements her happy, quiet life running the local flower shop in Rome, Kentucky. But finding her dream man may be harder than Annie imagined. Everyone knows everyone in her hometown, and the dating prospects are getting fewer by the day. After she overhears her latest date say she is “so unbelievably boring,” Annie starts to think the problem might be her. Is it too late to become flirtatious and fun like the leading ladies in her favorite romance movies? Maybe she only needs a little practice . . . and Annie has the perfect person in mind to be her tutor: Will Griffin.

Will—the sexy, tattooed, and absolutely gorgeous bodyguard—is temporarily back in Rome, providing security for Amelia Rose as excitement builds for her upcoming marriage to Noah Walker, Annie’s brother. He has one personal objective while on the job: stay away from Annie Walker and any other possible attachments to this sleepy town. But no sooner than he gets settled, Will finds himself tasked with helping Annie find the love of her life by becoming the next leading lady of Rome, Kentucky. Will wants no part in changing the sweet and lovely Annie. He knows for a fact that some stuffy, straitlaced guy won’t make her happy, but he doesn’t have the heart to say no.

Amid steamy practice dates and strictly “educational” tutoring lessons, Annie discovers there are more layers to Will’s usual stoic attitude. As the lines of their friendship become dangerously blurred, Annie reconsiders her dream guy. Maybe her love life doesn’t need to be perfect—it just needs to be real.


Book two in the When in Rome series was such a wonderful love story! I enjoyed returning to the small town of Rome, Kentucky to learn about Annie and Will. I loved checking in to see what our other favorite couple, Amelia and Noah, were up to, as well. With small town charm, hot couples, and fun storylines (to include pirate smut), there was lots to love about this book. I can’t wait to see what Adams has in store for book three, which is due out early next year!

❥ Listening to this via audio was an excellent experience. Narrators Will Peters and Jorjeana Marie did such a lovely job!
