Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ortolon's enjoyable final novel in her Perfect trilogy (Almost Perfect; Just Perfect) spins a good, old-fashioned contemporary fairy tale, but conscious suspension of disbelief is required. It's time for nurturing, curvy, Texas-bred Amy Baker to face her ultimate fear-traveling alone. She plans a working vacation cruise as a nanny, but gets fired and stranded on the Caribbean island of St. Barts before the trip begins. Determined to finish her challenge, Amy takes a job as a housekeeper for Guy Gaspar, a disfigured man who lives in his extravagant fort's tower and never shows his face. Or so she's told by his jolly French assistant. In reality, the lone tenant is sexy Hollywood golden boy Byron Parks, who seeks anonymity from the paparazzi. In an Oscar-worthy performance, Byron plays both assistant and "beast," and Amy falls in love with "Guy" over the fort's intercom. In this novel's case, the title is right on: the fanciful plot twists are fun, but Amy's character reads juvenile, and Byron is too sensitive for a playboy, even one with a heart. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Huntress Reviews - Detra Fitch
5 STARS! "Talk about a twist on the old 'Beauty & the Beast' tale. I have never read anything like this story. This is the last book in the 'Perfect' series. Of the three, this one is definitely the best. I hated seeing this trilogy end. I feel as though I know these three ladies and I am going to miss them. Author Julie Ortolon is going to have a hard time topping this book though. She has made a life-long fan in me. Highly recommended reading. "
Romantic Times - Susan Mobley
4 1/2 Stars! "Ortolon does not let you down with this wonderful conclusion to her Perfect Trilogy. The characters come alive and their problems are such that empathizing with them is easy. The trilogy is wrapped up nicely and with some sadness in saying goodbye to these characters."

    A must read!! The author makes you wants to be the main character in each book.Loved this trilogy.

    This I think is my favorite of the 3 books but loved all of them. I love this author, she gets you hooked the first thing and keeps you to the end, I read all 3 books in a day & half. My whole family are avid readers, so own hundreds of books but I will read these books again and again that says a lot about how much I enjoyed these books.

    Great series

    Loved this series. All books can stand alone but even better read in order. So many of us feel pressured by imagined responsibilities and are afraid to take chances. When AMY finally gaines confidence in herself she learns what true happiness is. Love scenes are great and you feel like you are living her dream. Well worth buying.

    terrific perfect final tale

    Artist Maddy Mills, Dr. Christine Ashton, and Amy Baker are elated for former college roommate Jane Redding, who has written a self-help book ¿How to have the Perfect Life¿. However, they become angry when they realize Jane used the trio as classic examples of how fear can destroy your life. Angry and feeling ridiculed the threesome vow to prove little Ms. Perfect wrong by regaining the passion they lost when they allowed phobias to paralyze them. --- Maddy has overcome her fears (see ALMOST PERFECT) and Christine succeeded too (see JUST PERFECT). Amy knows it is her turn to face her fear of getting lost while seeing the world. She takes work as a traveling nanny on a Caribbean cruise, but loses her job. In St. Barts, Amy gets lost. The success of her buddies leads Amy to tough it out by finding temporary work as a housekeeper to a recluse. Movie mogul Byron Parks is tired of the phoniness of Hollywood so has fled to a tropical getaway pretending to be hermit Guy Gaspar and flamboyant sexy Frenchman Lance Beaufort. The latter¿s flirtations leave Amy uncomfortable while the former¿s contact through a video intercom makes her feel good. As she falls in love with Guy, Byron reciprocates but fears how his housekeeper will react to the truth. --- TOO PERFECT closes out a fun trilogy with a terrific perfect final tale starring two fine likeable individuals with mucho emotional damage. Though Amy has lost a ton of weight, she psychologically believes she is fat and unappealing to males. Byron has become so down on relationships he split himself into two ¿new¿ personalities just to deal with the new housekeeper. Readers will appreciate this wonderful contemporary romance that perfectly asks what happened to Jane? --- Harriet Klausner

    Favorite book of the series...

    I absolutely love this series but to be perfectly honest this is my favorite book out of all three. To me you get a much better understanding of both the male and female characters and what leads to the problems in their relationship. From my standpoint it makes me appreciate it so much more when they get together because you know what they really had to overcome.

    A perfect ending

    Too Perfect by Julie Ortolon is the conclusion to the Perfect trilogy. It¿s a enchanting book from beginning to end. _____ Amy Baker¿s goal was to conquer her fear of traveling and to have faith in herself. She takes an assignment from her company Traveling Nannies and travels with a family on a Caribbean Cruise. Amy gets lost and ends up stranded on St. Barts with nothing. She agrees to take a job as a housekeeper for the recluse Guy Gaspar at his fortress. Amy only has direct dealings with his servant Lance Beaufort but the man in the tower intrigues her.________ Billionaire dealmaker Byron Parks has fled to St. Barts to take a long hard look at his life. In disguise as Lance he can go about daily life unrecognized but must hid in the tower as guy. Byron is compelled to talk to Amy through the monitors he has set up. They begin nightly talks over dinner that progress to titillating emails. But Amy wants to met guy face to face, she has never felt what Guy makes her feel. __________ Amy forces Guy (Byron) to met her but is in complete darkness. They begin a whirlwind romance both growing and changing. But will it all come crashing down when Amy finds out the truth? ________ Too Perfect is a deeply moving and funny book. It explores how we all few ourselves and each other. Amy and Bryon are an exceptional couple, their romance is unconventional but it works on all levels. Too Perfect brings this delightful trilogy to a close but these three friends and the men that they love will linger in your hearts long after you turn the last page.

    In the final book of the Perfect Trilogy, Amy must get over her

    In the final book of the Perfect Trilogy, Amy must get over her fear traveling by herself and getting lost. So to complete the bet made between Maddy, Christine and herself, she takes a job through her own nanny agency and gets on a boat as a traveling nanny for three children who are on vacation with their grandparents. What could possibly go wrong?

    Everything!

    To not give away too much of the story, let's just say she gets stranded on an island with little money, no passport or clothes. Luckily she gathers herself together long enough to make it to the local travel agency that helps her with some of her issues. And she finds a sign for a live-in housekeeper. Well, that should solve her problems for cash.

    And then the cliches begin. Girl goes to island mansion (in this case it's a castle), girl meets guy (in this case the assistant to the guy) and gets job. Assistant to the guy is actually the someone famous, and ultimately she falls in love with guy. Blah, blah, blah.

    Of the three books in the series, this one is my least favorite. While it sounds all romantic and all, it seemed to be a little stretch to make this happen. But, perhaps this is what Ms. Ortolon had intended for this last book...make it a real fantasy. It was just a little OTT for me. The only thing that I found to be interesting and the one thing that I could really make a connection with was Amy's realization that Grandma was secretly sabotaging her life in every way imaginable, and Amy was too blind to see it. Oh look! Something plausible and the saving grace in the entire story.
