Feature and Giveaway: Ruining Mr. Perfect by Marie Harte


Vanessa Campbell is a CPA by day and a perfectionist by night. She’s fit, successful…and decidedly lonely. She can’t stop thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron. He’s just like her: smart, attractive, and usually right—except when dealing with her.


Cameron McCauley likes Vanessa a little too much. She’s a blond goddess with a razor-sharp tongue. She hates to be wrong, just like him. But she can hold a grudge and is stubborn to a fault—also like him.

A past disagreement has them rubbing each other the wrong way. Cam is dying to shake Vanessa up—get her to let loose. But if he succeeds, can his heart handle it?

Maddie turned back to Vanessa. “Vanessa, let’s be honest. You never date a guy this long. I mean, you and Cam went to Beth’s as a couple. You spend your time exercising and eating disgustingly nutritious food…together.”

Abby smiled. “I think it’s great.”

“Yeah. Okay.” Vanessa headed to the kitchen, in need of some peppermint tea. Unfortunately, the chatty twins followed.

They watched her put the kettle on for tea.

“Vanessa?” Abby asked. “Why don’t you seem glad about being with Cam?”

She felt tense and deliberately relaxed before turning to face them. “Our relationship is great, but we’re no big deal. Cameron and I are new. So of course it’s all fluttery feelings and fun. I give it another few weeks before we cool down.”

Abby shook her head. “Brody told me he’s never seen Cam so happy before. I mean, really happy. That’s even while living with his father underfoot.”

Maddie nodded. “Flynn said the same thing. So are you going to let this relationship happen, or will you sabotage it like all the others?”

Vanessa frowned. “That was your M.O. before Flynn. Not mine.”

“You’re more subtle, but you’re flawed, just like me. You find fault with everyone you date. I’m shocked Cam’s lasted this long. But then, with a guy like him, it’s got to be hard to find things you don’t like. He’s nice but not too nice. Sexy, handsome, smart. Your kind of smart. And he’s rich.”

“He doesn’t have to be rich to be interesting.”

“No, but that doesn’t hurt. The man is just like you.” Maddie glanced at Abby. “Am I right?”

“So I hit a bunch of duds before,” Vanessa cut in. “Not my fault they couldn’t keep up.” She recalled John “Small Dick” Willington. She hadn’t seen him since that dinner and actually liked dealing with Henry on business.

“Well, this thing you have going with Cam.” Maddie pointed a finger at her. “Don’t screw it up.”

“What the hell does that mean?” Vanessa took the kettle off the burner when it whistled and turned off the stove. After pouring herself and her roommates some hot water, she girded herself for a verbal battle. “Why do you automatically assume I’ll be the one to screw up?”

“Because that’s what you do. Your parents did a number on you as a kid, and you always get weird when you find a guy you might like. I think you really like Cam. Don’t search for problems where there are none.”

  1. Can't choose. I haven't read any of the books.........Yet!

  2. Haven't read any of the McCauley brother books yet. But reading the synopsis of each, I think I'm most interested in either Mike or Flynn. However, Vanessa Campbell in Cameron's story being a CPA has me most interested. I went to college and got my accounting degree but never did take the CPA exam -- my one regret in life. [married and really have never worked as an accountant either]

  3. Haven't read the stories yet, but I am sure I will love all of them! Your covers are gorgeous!

  4. I've not read any of the books so I can't answer that question.

  5. I haven't read this series, but I like the sound of Flynn and Maddie's story.

  7. I just read the first two books in this series, and I LOVED them. I can't wait for Cameron and Mike's stories. They are definite must buys.
