Blog Tour and Review: Perfection is just an illusion by Rebecca Barber

James Thompson is an Olympic swimmer with gold medals, world records, and million-dollar sponsorship deals…

But his fiancée Anna White is just an ordinary girl—or so she believes. 
When James takes her home for a visit and encounters her childhood friends and sleazy, jealous ex-boyfriend, Grant, he sees for the first time just how far apart their worlds really are.
Anna’s so-called friends undermine and backstab, but James is up for the challenge…

James is determined to make Anna see that while she might have once been an ugly duckling, she is now a stunning swan, and the only woman for him. 

As the London World Championships approach, media scrutiny of their relationship intensifies, and an intimate secret is uncovered...making their promise to each other nearly impossible to keep.

Caught up in a whirlwind of press coverage, and championship competition…

James and Anna find the stress almost overwhelming, and they struggle to maintain focus on their goals. But when victory finally appears certain, an old menace resurfaces and threatens to violate all James and Anna hold dear. 

Is it possible to have a perfect life?
A perfect love?
Or is perfection just an illusion…


Perfection is just an illusion was a big surprise to me. This book was a sweet journey through the eyes of a couple that despite they loved each other, the illusion of Perfection was something that almost attempt against them.

The relationship of Anna and James was a hidden relationships thanks to the fame of James, that once they returned to her hometown, everyone knew everything, and a lot of things started threatening their relationship. The lies and the roller coaster of the madness. Everyone wanting a piece of them, to destroy something that they were taking care of, very carefully.

But it's here when the title has a significance. Perfection is just an illusion. No every relationship is perfect, and even us a humans made a lot of mistakes. Anna's insecurities were understandable, and I appreciated how she discover that she was enough to James, a little long that time, but at the end she understood what she needed to understand.

The ending of this book, was a little strange. There are a lot of questions unanswered, and a lot of thing I need to finish to understand. I suppose the author plans to write a next book, because I think is necessary, and would be really good finish to read the story of Anna and James.

Rebecca, one of four kids to her parents who are both primary school teachers, was born in Wollongong on the south coast of Australia before moving to the country with her family. After a few years of embracing all that country life had to offer, the family relocated to Port Macquarie with its white sand beaches. After a brief period enjoying the sun and the surf they finally settled in Canberra where Rebecca still lives today. But all through her childhood a notepad and a book where never far away. These days Rebecca is an avid reader, and when she isn’t buried in a book or cheering on her beloved football team she’s spending time with her husband Robert and their overly spoilt dog Levi.
