Blog Tour & Reviews by Jackie & Erin: Something So Perfect by Natasha Madison.


Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.


When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.

She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.

He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.

But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect.

“Okay,” Robert starts, “we have your contract here. It’s a one-year contract for two point one million, as per your agent.” He smiles at me because I don’t have an agent. I have Cooper. “We also have the stipulation clause. I know last time you weren’t happy with some of them, but it’s the only way we can both win.” He opens the folder in front of him. “You will be living in a brownstone in Brooklyn.” The page flips over while he continues to read. “Your chaperone will live with you.” He looks up, waiting to see if I’ll say something, and I almost say fuck off. “It’s a three-story brownstone. You each have your own floor to do as you please.”

I nod at him. It isn’t as bad as I thought and maybe me and my roommate will be each other’s wing man. “Your chaperone will be at your side each time you go out. Especially, game day and traveling. Of course you will each have your own room when traveling, but it will be connecting.”
“I hope this guy is up for Netflix and working out.” I smile at them, my hand itchy to sign the papers before I call it all off.
Doug gets up, going to the phone on the table, pressing a couple of buttons. “Can you come to the conference room, please?” He hangs up right after.

“If you mess up even once, your contract is null and void,” Doug says, sitting down just as the door opens and I turn my head to stare at the person who just walked in.

“You?” I stand up, looking back at the other people at the table. The chick from the gym walks in, this time wearing black tight pants and a white button-down shirt, rolled up at the wrists. “Is this a joke?”

“I can assure you I had the same reaction when I was asked,” she says sternly. “I don’t want this any more than you do, but it is what it is.”

“She tried to pick me up yesterday.” I put my hands on my hips, telling the table.

“Are you insane?” she huffs out, her voice rising. “You and your anatomy landed on me.” She looks at Doug. “Right in my back.”

I roll my eyes at her.

“Karrie,” Doug says, looking at her.

“What?” She shrugs at him. “He couldn’t even contain himself, and he thinks I tried to pick him up.” She looks at me. “You wish.”

I pfft out. “Please, one word and you would have come home with me.” I look at the men in front of me. “You guys can’t be serious.” I then look back at Karrie. “Besides, how old is she? Twelve?”

“Pervert. I would have pulled the fire alarm and kicked you in the nuts.” She crosses her arms over her chest, making her tits strain against the buttons. “Either way you would have ended up in the same place. Alone. With bruised nuts.”

Robert slaps the table. “That’s enough, you two.” He looks at both of us. “Now, you two have a lot of catching up to do. I will forward you both the travel schedule.” He stands up, grabbing the papers, and slapping me on the shoulder. “Good to have you.”

Coach Dan gets up also, smirking at me while I stand here speechless that they allow a girl to chaperone me. Not just any girl, the hottest fucking girl I’ve ever set eyes on. I had to take care of myself three times since I stumbled on her.

“You two try not to kill each other.” Dan looks at Karrie. “Be good, sweetheart.” And he kisses her cheek.

“Really?” I throw my hands in the air. “Does no one think this is a ridiculous idea?” I look around the room and the only one left is Doug, who gets up.

“I think it’s the best thing to ever happen to you.” He walks over to squeeze my shoulder. “But if you make my little girl cry”—he leans in, whispering—“they won’t find your body.”

My mouth opens and closes, and then opens again, not a sound coming out.

I have read every Natasha Madison book and have fallen in love with everyone of them and I have to say Something so Perfect is just  "Perfect".
Matthew Grant was young when he started his career in the NHL and its now time to make up for the mistakes he made in his youth, he has been given a second chance at building his career after being kicked out of his team for being NHL's bad boy. It's time to prove himself but that could be difficult when he is assigned the boss's stunning blue-eyed blond daughter as a chaperone.....
Karrie is a smart mouthed very intelligent woman and the last thing she needs is to babysit a arrogant hot hockey player, but since losing her mother to breast cancer she has become very close to her father and she will do what ever he asks of her.
Sparks fly from the moment they meet and there is no denying the chemistry between them but both have jobs to do, will they manage to do there jobs and still be friends or maybe they both want a bit more than friendship. At times you will think who is this jerk and at times you will be swooning at his lines like "You're more than my girlfriend..You're my lover.. You're my tomorrow ", at times you will be laughing out loud and at times you will shead a tear but one thing for sure is you will fall in love with the characters and the story. If you want a book that has it all and that leaves you smiling like a Cheshire Cat this is a must read. What can I say about the epilogue apart from I WANT THE NEXT COUPLES STORY NOW !!!!
Great job Natasha Madison another 5 star read.

This was only the second book I have read by Natasha Madison and the first from this series. Despite not having read the previous book I had no trouble following this story. 

When bad boy NHL player Matthew Grant is given one last chance to resurrect his damaged career he jumps at the chance. He knows that this is it and he is determined to get his career back on track.

However, he doesn't count on Karrie, the chaperone, who is charged with babysitting him and keeping him out of trouble being so attractive. 

Despite themselves, Matthew and Karrie are drawn to each other and sparks ignite. 
Can they both ignore the sizzling attraction that lies between them or will they decide that the risks are worth it?

Something So Perfect was at times like riding an emotional roller coaster; I laughed, I cried, I swooned. 

Matthew could be an arrogant jerk and yet he was also sweetly romantic. Karrie is one of those heroines who is feisty and one you just know could be a friend.

I look forward to reading more in the series from Natasha Madison.

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
