Beschreibung

Pop star Leontyne Blake might sing about love, but she stopped believing in it a long time ago. What women want is her image, not the real her. When her father has a stroke, she flees the spotlight and returns to her tiny Missouri hometown.In her childhood home, she meets small-town nurse Holly Drummond, who isn't impressed by Leo's fame at all. That isn't the only thing that makes Holly different from other women. She's also asexual. For her, dating is a minefield of expectations that she has decided to avoid.

Can the tentative friendship between a burned-out pop star and a woman not interested in sex develop into something more despite their diverse expectations?

Contains mature themes.

    A sweet lovely story. Learning a lot about other sexuality in our ?️‍?community

    This was a really sweet romance story. I pretty much always like books by Jae, and I’ve yet to come across a book narrated by Angela Dawe that I didn’t enjoy. I loved the asexual representation! You don’t get to see that enough in stories, especially not so lovingly told in a romance like this.

    A brilliant piece of writing. This book was sweet, funny, heartbreaking, heartwarming, a truly great read. The narrator was also fantastic!
  • (5/5)
    It’s good story! This was my first read of Jae’s work. The slow burn romance was beautiful and it was nice reading about asexual people, the way they lived their lives and the varieties of it. It was educational. Angela Dawe as usual was magnificent!

    Perfect rhythm is perfect in every sense. This has to be Jae's best work for me out of all her books.
  • (5/5)
    It was an amazing book! For me it gives enough justice on how and what it was like to be an ace. I need more of this kind of book!
  • (5/5)
    I highly recommend this to all aces and all who like sweet and sappy and slow romances. It might have been a bit silly and trope-y, but seeing those used to uplift asexuals and lady love made it precious and new.

    I really enjoyed this book by Jae. I’ve read/ listened to others be her as well and this one was very unique. It provides an in depth picture of asexuality and the fact that sex is not merely physical but can be emotional and felt in different ways. Definitely give this book a chance.

    Although the book describes a perfect story, I still can't imagine how an asexual and a sexual person can be wife and wife.

    As an aromantic, queer, polyamorous person, I was thrilled to read a book that had a main character off the “conventional” sexual orientation spectrum. I also felt that the warning before chapter 22 was extremely sensitive, and that the intimacy between Leo and Holly was authentic and believable. Thank you, JAE!

    I've missed reading several of Jae's newer books but jumped at the opportunity to read this one. More visibility and inclusion of the BT and A aspects of LGBTQA spectrum are needed and I think Perfect Rhythm is a great addition.

    I knew the bare bones about asexuality so it was nice to get to know Holly and get a better understanding of some of the relationship hurdles she and other ace folks deal with. Besides the issues dealing specifically with asexuality, this is a pretty standard lesfic romance. Not too much angst but lots of relationship building and outside things going on that help to move our leading ladies toward finding love with each other.

    I thought the dialogue and flow of the story were very good. If you're a fan of any of Jae's previous books, I have no doubt that you'll like this one, too.

    It was ok. Story ok. Wish the ending was more of her getting back on tour. That could be another book.
  • (5/5)
    As a minority buried within so many minorities, I get Jae's purpose. Everyone, not just the majority, needs a voice. After reading the blurb, I thought Okay, Holly just hasn't met the right person yet. Once she meets Leo, Holly will fall in love, and all of her "pent-up" sexual desires will coming spilling out. Problem solved. Man, was I wrong. After reading Perfect Rhythm, I see that my understanding of the term asexual was off base. I had no idea how broad the asexual spectrum is. From Leo and Holly's journey, I get that if sex can exist without romantic love (e.g. Leo's past relationships), the converse is also true: romantic love can exist without sex. Unfortunately, we live in societies where, as Saul said, sex sells. It's fun to talk about, to read, to watch, and to explore. So who thinks about the converse when relating sex to love? From this viewpoint, I understand Holly's apprehensions about discussing her orientation especially when one of the minor characters used the phrase "her...issues" to describe Holly. Like Holly was the problem because she did not fit into the norm.

    Besides asexual awareness, the minor plot concerning Leo's relationship with her parents hits home for me. Once I had that "Hey family, guess what...." talk, I wasn't rejected, just communication went from "this isn't how you were raised" comments, to the looks of disapproval, and finally to very little communication. Maybe it's time for my "new beginning" too.   

    From a different perspective, this story strengthens my hate for labels. A romantic relationship consists of people loving who they want to love how they want to love them. And like any healthy relationship, good communication, respect, accommodating differences, and understanding are a must. The journey may be different, but don't people want the same thing, a HEA? Why use labels?

    I was given this ARC by the publisher in exchange for an Honest Review.I really, really wasn't sure about this book. On the one hand, I read lesbian fiction and lesbian romances because of the lesbian. I don't know if that makes me a bad person or whatever, but, those are what I enjoy, they're what relax me (well, usually).I have read a couple of books with transgender characters and liked them, so I thought I should try one about an asexual character as well, broaden my reading horizons.It's about Leo and Holly. Leo is also known as Jenna when she's in her pop star life, but, in this book she goes home when she learns her father has had a stroke. There she meets Holly, who is her father's home care nurse. Leo and Holly knew each other when they were kids, but weren't close. And Holly is the character who is asexual.Leo is a lesbian slowly falls for Holly, and so there was a lot of internal stuff for both of them, as well as explanations about asexuality (the stuff like the fact that not every asexual is exactly the same, [sarcasm]I know, totally surprising huh? [/end sarcasm]) that I thought mostly fit in amongst the rest of the narrative pretty well.Look, I know that I'm probably getting a ton of stuff wrong with this review, and for that I do apologize, but, it was a Jae book, and it was amazingly written as usual, and I did really enjoy it.
