Perfectly Misunderstood (Perfect Series Book #4) by Robin Daniels {Review and Giveaway}

Perfectly Misunderstood (Perfect Series Book #4) 
by Robin Daniels

This dual perspective book is the final installment in the Perfect Series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Jayden Valdez is an overachieving intellectual. Mike McGinnes is Franklin High School’s dumbest jock. Even though they barely know each other, she finds his personality repulsive and he thinks she’s got a giant stick up her you know what. Mike and Jayden are surprised and annoyed when their teacher pairs them together for Spanish tutoring. Both feel it’s a complete waste of time, since nobody could learn from a person who bugs the crap out of them. Not to mention that their reputations might be ruined if people realize what they’re doing. But it doesn’t take long for Jayden to discover that Mike has a secret—he isn’t the person he appears to be. Much to her dismay, Jayden finds 'Secret Mike' strangely attractive. And for some crazy reason, Mike is amused by Jayden’s clever insults and witty banter. Suddenly, they have a much bigger problem than their mutual disdain. What started as irritating tension is beginning to feel more like romantic tension and acting on it would be a very bad idea.

My Review: 4.5 Stars

I've read this series from the start and have loved it! And honestly? I don't want it to end.

Jayden and Mike are about as different as you can get and it's really easy to stereotype these two. I think most of us are guilty of acting the way we think we should and falling into these types. I love the way they overcome the social molds they each find themselves in and grow into who they really are.

Jayden is super smart and comes across as being a little too mature for high school in some ways, but when she finds herself in need of a tutor to appease her perfectionist father, Mike comes to the rescue. He seems like a "dumb jock" but has some secrets up his sleeve. I loved discovering the depth of these characters and seeing their true colors.

I also loved the romantic development. The banter is fun and witty and the chemistry is smoldering. The interactions made me smile and I always wondered what they would do or say next. This book almost made me wish for those high school days again--it was that fun!

Like I said, I'm sad for this series to end, but it was fun to see glimpses of previous characters and to get a satisfying ending. I'm keeping my out eye out for Robin Daniels and hoping for another fun series!

Content: mild language; mild innuendo, kissing

Jayden’s glare intensified, and I could tell she was sending me mental death threats. Eventually, she gave up and sat down across from me. “Was that so hard?” I asked.
“About as hard as you head.”
“I have harder parts than my head,” I countered. Her eyes grew wide at the implication. I let her stew for a second before lifting my sleeve and flexing my bicep. “You think that’s hard? You should see my abs.” I’d said it as a joke, but it was basically true.
She was surprised for the briefest moment, then she grunted. “How Cro-Magnon of you.”
“Your grunt suggests you’re familiar with the genotype on a personal level.” I smirked.
Jayden’s eyes narrowed. “At least I’ve evolved. Your face suggests that you haven’t yet.”
I tsked in good nature. “Your face might be prettier than mine, but your manners prove you haven’t evolved as much as you think.”
