Colton Evans loves both men and women but never thought his family would approve of his long kept secret. After falling head over heels in love with Bleu Leroux and Alexis Mirskii, he's finally forced to confront his fear of coming out to his police officer father.

Alexis Mirskii overcame years of abuse at his father's hands, eventually becoming a successful chef. It wasn't until meeting Colton and Bleu that he found something was missing. Even if that something meant falling in love with a woman and a man after considering himself straight his entire life.

Bleu Leroux, a former troubled teen and drug addict, has always struggled with her past and never thought it possible to find someone who could accept her, let alone two someones. A night of tragedy began the trio's journey toward love ten years before ever meeting. But can they put aside the complications of their pasts to create a future together?

Using the words "different" and "unique" to describe Ceri Grenelle's novel, A DIFFERENT KIND OF PERFECT, would be like saying a painting is "interesting."

There is nothing typical about this book. It is disturbing in an "OMG" kind of way. I've read plenty of stories featuring broken characters, but this one tops them all.

If you aren't comfortable reading about a "trouple," which involves three individuals in a relationship, this may not be the best book to choose. However, if you believe that love has no boundaries and can overcome any obstacle, this will be a gripping read.

The three characters, Colton, Alex and Bleu, have a unique connection from the past that greatly impacts their relationship. Each one has an individual storyline that merges into the main one. There's a lot going on within the pages of this book -- from Colton and Alex grappling with their sexual identities to Bleu coming to terms with her tragic past.

From a heat standpoint, the interaction between the characters is extremely intense and detailed. The test of a good book is whether it can stand on its own without the erotic element. In my opinion, A DIFFERENT KIND OF PERFECT meets that requirement.

I always wonder how an author chooses the wording for a title. In this case, Ceri Grenelle makes a powerful statement with her selection. It is not until the reader gets into the story that it becomes evident why this particular choice is so appropriate.

While a bit out of my comfort zone with the m/m action, I found this to be a book not easily forgotten.
