"This book was fantastic...

heartwarming, funny, it's great no matter your sexuality, it makes you really think about relationship trials and what to do and what not to do.

-NetGalley Review


"I enjoyed this read...

When it comes to the romance, there is no insta love here. For that I was very grateful. It happens so much in lesfic that I am happy to read a romance that builds naturally. The chemistry is not in your face, but it is definitely there. You believe these characters would be attracted to each other...And what really impressed me, wait for it, there was COMMUNICATION! OMG it’s the unicorn of lesfic romance. Instead of just breaking up automatically, the characters actually spoke to each other. Who would have ever thought? I think romance fans looking for more of a lighter book that still has some angst, will like this read."  -NetGalley Review


"19 stars guys, read this book!...

My very first time reading from this author already had me hooked so going into this book was such a journey of not being disappointed whatsoever! Talk about hitting home with being able to overcome fear and follow your dreams. Everyone knows the struggle and being from such a tight knit family, it’s one of the hardest things to overcome but god, what a journey these two characters have with a growing love to push each other to be better." -NetGalley Review 


"Five Stars...

This novel makes me think summer read, lying on the beach, with book in one hand and Mai Tai in the other....I really enjoyed the banter between  Gabby and Olive. They didn’t only complement each other intimately but also around others. The small public displays of affection are the moments I love the most because it shows the couple as their friends and family would see them if they were a real couple. The more intimate scenes between the couple surprised me in a very good way. I was expecting Olive to be passive in the bedroom allowing Gabby to take control but how wrong was I, which just added to the already very sensual sex scenes....Another great novel by Lisa Moreau. Her novels just keep getting better and it leaves me desperate for what comes next."  -Les Reveur


"A fun, enjoyable read...

I enjoyed both characters and found myself really pulled into the romance. I did love how I felt they acted like normal adults through their disagreements or understandings and generally talked things out." -NetGalley Review


"It's cute and sweet...

There are some funny situations and in general it's nice to read." -NetGalley Review


"A definite buy...

I'm a big fan of the author. There are few authors whose dialogue is so engrossing that it doesn't matter what the set-up of the story is, it will be a good read. Lisa one of those authors. I just enjoy being able to listen in and watch the two main characters fall in love. She also has this great ability to create amazing characters, so that even the side characters feel fully developed. I especially loved the whole Italian posse/family of Gabby. I could just picture them throughout the book and was thoroughly entertained." -NetGalley Review

"This is a sweet story...

Both characters were interesting and the chemistry between them was believable. I also enjoyed the way their romance developed, and that any misunderstandings/issues were fixed up quickly." -NetGalley Review


"Fun to read...

There are so many layers to this novel with colorful characters so full of life and sweet soulfulness that it's a delight to get to know every one of them. The scenic Catalina Island adds to a picturesque backdrop to Olive and Gabby's love story. Their romance entangling with the photography competition was a push and pull of strong personalities and undeniable attraction. Throw in a good dose of overbearing and loud Italian family and it's one hilarious moment after the next tempered with solemn moments of the uncertainty of whether or not their love will survive another day. This is a great book to curl up with and escape for a few hours." -NetGalley Review


"A nice way to spend a few hours!...

I think a good book is what you can easily say for Picture Perfect by Lisa Moreau. It was a fast and easy read that was relatively lighthearted. The author has a beautiful way of describing the scenery and the story flowed seamlessly." -NetGalley Review


"I really enjoyed reading this book....

Gabby is losing her dreams because she has a very high sense of duty toward her family, Olive because she is afraid to go away from Catalina. When they found each other they found love and also the strength to be true to themselves."  -NetGalley Review


"Thoroughly enjoyed this story...

Two women enter a yearly photography competition, both wanting to win and to use the first prize of a job on a popular travel magazine as means to escape their current situations. Olive and Gabby are great characters and their journeys through the book, make fun reading. Gabby' s sister Gina, is bit of scene stealer as a nightmare bride to be!  -NetGalley Review
