Rating: 2 out of 5.

The Perfect Couple by Maura Seger was perfectly…boring.

The set up was great: flipping back through different times in Shane and Brenna’s relationship, but the love story was treacly-sweet. If I liked that sort of white bread perfection, I’d read Nicholas Sparks, the gag-master extraordinaire.

Shane and Brenna have been a couple for some time, but their differences threaten their love-life. Brenna is a down-to-earth type who likes her life carefully planned out. She wants a long-term relationship, but no children. Shane lives on the edge and wants a family.

Then Shane’s plane crashes and he is presumed dead. Brenna hopes for the best and looks back on their time together, wondering if they were too different to be together or if love is enough to overcome all their obstacles, even death.
