Overview

Originally published in print by Signet Eclipse.

The Perfect Trilogy:

Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a bestselling book, How to Have the Perfect Life—until they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up their lives. The worst part is…it’s sort of true. Together they make a pact: they each have one year to face down their fears—and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two!

Book Two: Just Perfect

An Ice Princess and a Ski Bum -- a Perfect Disaster?

You have to be tough to work in the ER—but Dr. Christine Ashton’s courage doesn’t extend to riding a chairlift, no matter how much she loves skiing. Her challenge is to strap on a pair of skis and conquer her fear of heights. The bigger challenge, though, will be resisting the sexy ski instructor her friends have deemed off-limits.

Alec Hunter is more than just a fun-loving charmer and nothing like the users and losers, and strays Christine usually picks. But she’s still giving him the cold shoulder, and he’s determined to prove how wrong she is about him.

After helping the victim of a snowboarding accident, the two fall hard and fast—with enough heat to melt the mountains. And everything is just perfect—until Christine must face another kind of fear and choose between her dream job back home and her dream man in Colorado.

Magazine - RT Book Club
Once again, Ortolon mixes humor into a well-crafted story of self-discovery and personal growth. Christine not only reaches her goal, she discovers that being true to yourself can be more important than parental approval, and that love is something that shouldn’t need to be earned.

    Just Perfect

    Three friends find themselves held up as negative examples in their 'perfect' friend's self help best seller. To prove Miss Perfect wrong, they each decide to tackle their predominant fear, and turn it into a bet to make it interesting. Christine's challenge is to got past her acrophobia and ski. If she can just best the ski lift, it'll literally all be downhill from there. By good fortune, she gets Alex Hunter as her ski instructor, and he's hot enough to melt snow. At first, he thinks she's nothing but pretty fluff, but as time passes, realizes she's not, and that he really likes her, but he's poor and she's anything but. Christine has trust issues, fearing he could be a user. Even if they get past all these fears, would her family ever approve? Can he deal with her being older and rich? ....................... This interesting premise proves one thing, no self help book can really help you, only you can, and if there's love involved the impossible becomes do-able. Some people may find it hard to believe that a woman with so much going for her as Christine could be cowed by her family, but many readers will know this is a very true to life character, one they may know themselves.

    In the next book of the Perfect Trilogy, Christine Ashton has to

    In the next book of the Perfect Trilogy, Christine Ashton has to get over her fear of heights. Actually she needs to get over her fear of heights and a whole lot more. She thinks that by conquering her fear of heights she will be able to go skiing and finally beat her brother at something and gain her father's approval.

    As part of the bet with her college suitemates, she goes to Colorado to get started on getting past this fear she has had for what seems like forever. Arriving about a week early, she hires an instructor to help her out. Enter Alec, the ski bum and he appears to be "perfect"...drat! Now she needs to refrain from the one thing Christine promised herself she wouldn't do...date and fall in love with another loser guy with no prospects for a future. Christine has to keep Alec at bay all the while conquering her fear of heights, learn to ski really well so that she can beat her brother at something, and gain her father's respect.

    By the way, did I mention that Christine is a doctor, just like her dad. But...well you know where this is going don't you? Well without giving away the rest of the story, Just Perfect by Julie Ortolon really examines the issues of the child/parent paradigm without getting too complicated in the process. Throw in a handsome guy who on the surface looks like a loser, but really isn't and it makes for a very interesting and entertaining read.

    I really like the fact that Ms. Ortolon was not afraid to show Christine's strength as well as her vulnerabilities. She also slowly reveals Alec's character true identity as well as both of their families. Of the three books in the trilogy, I would have to say this one was my favorite. At the end, I was actually yelling, "You go girl!" As for the reasons why, well you are just going to have to read and find out!
