Synopsis: I know what you did last summer.
Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.
Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.
Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.
Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.
As the hot, sultry summer days on the bayou move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

Review: (I received this novel from the author for an honest review.)
A Perfect Mess is the first of novel in Zoe Dawson's Outlaw series. Damn, she made me fall in love with the Outlaw boys, otherwise known as the unholy trinity. Tough on the outside, soft on the inside, Booker has always seemed untouchable to Aubree. Of course she has always watched him from afar. Always aware of his presence. When one fateful nigh changes Aubree's world forever, Booker is by her side.
To Booker, Aubree has always been a shimmering dream just out of reach ans it is probably better that way. Booker wouldn't want to tarnish Aubree with his reputation. But mysterious things begin to happen in their hometown, Booker knows he must protect Aubree, at all cost.
Is it possible to overlook the past in order to move forward? Can someone break free from the constraints of their reputation?
I loved this novel and cannot wait to see what happened with Boone and Brax.
