Perfectly Oblivious (The Perfect Series #1)Perfectly Oblivious by Robin Daniels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Perfectly Oblivious is one of those stories that is enjoyable for all ages. I received a free copy from ebooksforreview.com in exchange for an honest review. When I first read the book synopsis I thought this book sounded fun. I have to admit I had a few flashbacks to high school. I wasn't very popular the first couple of years and by junior year I was better known which apparently happens when you are one of the few with a car. I was still a student at a school far away from my friends that I grew up with who was basically putting in time until the end of the day when I could go hang out with buddies from the neighborhood. I managed to keep my feet firmly in both worlds and found house music which brought on an entirely new set of buddies. Well, Detroit House Music is an entirely different story but one of my true loves. Bea, or BeBe, as Cam calls her is sort of the same way, popular by no effort of her own, but, more by association with her popular and much-loved sister.

What is funny about BeBe and Cam is that they are in love with each other and both not willing to fess up. But, that is sort of how it is in high school. We never want to be the first to say we like or love someone. Unfortunately, Bea has what she thinks is a good reason for that. She appears to be cursed or at least she suffers from the same curse that a lot of sisters do. They like someone. That someone comes to visit or sees her out with her sister and immediately falls for the sister. Luckily she has a sister who has the same rules my sister and I had growing up. You don't date someone your sister likes or dated. That one was ingrained in me from a very young age by my mom. Bea's sister is a surrogate mom for Bea after their mom died many years ago and she has a really good head on her shoulders, despite only being a few months older than Bea. Well, she did some out of character things trying to help Cam get Bea to "see" him. What ensues is one misunderstanding and hurt feeling after another, well basically high school. Perfectly Oblivious is a great story for any age when they want to remember what it was like to fall in love in high school and it looks like it is the start of what promises to be a great series.
