Ashton never thought he would be attracted to another man before and when he spies Hayden, the bartender, at this quaint off the roadside bar, he is smitten immediately. As time goes by, his feelings continue to deepen as both men find themselves falling for each other. Just one tiny little problem for both of them-Ashton is married and Hayden has a controlling jerk of a boyfriend. Can either find a way to be together and have their own PICTURE PERFECT life together?

PICTURE PERFECT is a nice, sweet, short story that will steal your heart within moments of cracking open the book. The characters were well rounded, believable and the storyline flowed smoothly. The conflicts between the two main characters are written well and the writing was tight. This was my first book by this author and I found his writing to be very enjoyable and entertaining.

Meet Ashton, a car salesman who is miserable in his marriage and when one night, he stumbles upon a bar he has never noticed before, he finds something he has never felt before-lust for another man. Hayden is cheerful, personable and easy on the eyes. Ashton is immediately smitten and as these two grow closer, the attraction simmers and builds between them until a kiss changes everything. I love the characters here. They are multi-dimensional, appealing and I really wanted to meet Hayden to see what a yummy man he was in Ashton’s eyes. Both are perfect for the other and the reader is taken on a journey as their relationship flourishes amid breakups and conflicts. I found the secondary characters interesting and they kept the story flowing smoothly from one page to the next.

PICTURE PERFECT is a wonderful story of two people finding themselves and a love they only dreamed about. Mr. Greene delivers a heartwarming story that will warm the heart and in the process capture it as well. If you enjoy a sweet, tender M/M story then I highly recommend PICTURE PERFECT to read. I am definitely looking forward to exploring this author’s backlisted titles next.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
