November 20, 2014
Morgan Pritchett doesn't need anyone. Strong-willed and confident, she's the master of organizing and looking after everyone around her. In her mind, she's bulletproof. But she has one weakness – men. She can't seem to live without them, yet is unable to find her perfect match. After yet another break up, Morgan promises her sister and best friend that she'll write off men for the rest of the year. But then she meets Sean Tate.
Sean Tate has worked hard to become a Hollywood actor, scoring minor roles and slowly making a name for himself as an action sidekick. After a chance encounter with the stunning Morgan Pritchett, he decides to take a risk and put his dancing skills to the test by signing on for the lead role in Superstar, a TV musical. He never thought he'd reconnect with the girl who urged him to ignore his manager and be honest with himself, but when Morgan shows up on the set as a production assistant, he realizes he's found his ultimate weakness — her.
Their passion for dance and music will bring them together, but will their relationship be able to withstand the forces determined to pull them apart? As Morgan comes face to face with her demons and Sean decides just how much he's willing to risk for love, these two lovers discover something... they're not as bulletproof as they thought.
Hello everyone! Welcome to my Release Day Review of Bulletproof by Melissa Pearl. As soon as I found out that Melissa Pearl was releasing a new book I knew I had to check it out. I really enjoyed reading Melissa Pearl's Fugitive duology so I was so excited to check out one of her adult contemporaries. So let's get into the review~
Morgan Pritchett has had a bad history with guys. Her last relationship ended in a disaster and after that, she’s sworn off men and relationships. Everything seems to be working until she meets rising acting star, Sean Tate. She gives him a piece of her mind regarding pursuing his dreams, never knowing how much it affected him. A couple days later, she finally finds a job as an assistant to a TV series director to find Sean as the leading male protagonist. They instantly hit it off, but they soon find out that love takes a lot more effort and sacrifice then they expected.
I had nothing but high hopes coming into Bulletproof and I was definitely not disappointed. Melissa Pearl delivers a story of a strong headed woman who has been forced to be bulletproof for her entire life. Bulletproof against the world and its taunts. Morgan was a fantastic protagonist in that you got to see her flaws and her strengths and absolutely love her for it. Throughout the years, her bulletproof armor has gotten so dented by the blows that the world has given her, she just doesn’t know if she can keep going for much longer. Along with all the taunts, she finds herself comparing her life to her mother’s. Is she really so desperate for attention that she can’t stand on her own two feet?
With Sean, Morgan slowly begins the repair her damaged armor, but there’s still that one kink that can’t be fixed. Their relationship is already strongly rooted in love, but it’s also shrouded in secret and that is something that bothers her a lot. Sean was a fantastic person as well, he gave you the feels and you got little goose bumps when he lost himself to the beat of music and dancing. Both he and Morgan have this burning passion that completely engulfs you regardless of your views toward music and dancing.
In addition to writing a perfectly beautiful romance, Melissa Pearl also addresses the strengths and weaknesses of family. Morgan and her sister have such a beautiful relationship as they are bonded by the tragedy of their mother abandoning them. Both girls have fears about themselves relating to their mother, but together they find ways to overcome those doubts.
I cannot write this review without mentioning the TV series. Personally, I think it’d be fantastic to see on the big screen. The choreography that is described is vivid and you see it all happening in front of you. There’s also Morgan’s S.O.B. boss who I would love to smack in the head because he’s a douchebag. Oh, another character I want to smack is Sean’s personal agent, you’ll have to read to know what I mean, but that woman drives me nuts. The series is such a vital part of the book, it’s really cool to see it represented as such a big deal instead of becoming second to the romance.
Overall, I really liked this book and Melissa Pearl has definitely done it again! I know this is the second book in a series, but it reads fine as a standalone. Nothing more to see other than go pick this book up! Welcome to the world Bulletproof!!
