In Pursuit of Perfection
by Jacki Kelly


GENRE: Romance



The next man in Macy Rollins’s life must be perfect. She’s had enough impostors and isn’t willing to settle for anything less. All she has to do is get through the company contract negotiation season and she will get that promotion she has been working so hard for. Avery Malveaux – one of Philadelphia’s most eligible bachelors – has been hired to work with her as legal counsel for the company. From the moment they are forced to work together tensions are high and expectations are low. He questions her ability, she questions his intentions. After Macy is suspected in an accounting shortage, she accuses Avery of betraying her confidence. Has she once again been deceived by a man she thought she could trust? Can she clear her name and win her job back? And can there be any hope for Macy’s pursuit of perfection.



Macy rubbed her forehead. Right now, wasn’t the time to fire Michelle and start interviewing for a new assistant. The world needed to stop spinning for just a few moments. Her job depended on finding that money. She picked up the phone and dialed accounting.

“Connie, I need your help,” she said. “Can you run monthly balances on my account, starting with January?”

“You want everything? That’s a lot.”

“Yeah. How soon can you get it to me?”

“Give me a day or two.”

“Connie, one more thing. I’m seeing a lot of new accounts. Several that I don’t recognize. I know we’re going after market share, but I didn’t expect this many. If I send you a list of the names, what information can you provide on them?”

“Well, I can tell you when the account was set up, by who, and purchasing activity. What else would you need?”

“That’s a good start. Thanks.”
Macy ended the call, but the nagging didn’t subside.



Falling in Love with the Main Characters:

Books are all about the characters in them and whatever it is they want to accomplish. When In Pursuit of Perfection came to me, I saw a female lead that was like ninety percent of women. Most women are insecure about something, whether it’s our hair, body image, or something as simple as our eyebrows or the fullness or lack thereof of our lips. Ask any woman if there was one thing she could change about herself and I’m willing to bet every one of them would come up with something. And if they are anything like my heroine, they might come up with two or three. I didn’t want Macy Rollins to be perfect because there’s no such thing. Macy has doubts and sometimes she feels insecure. Readers don’t fall in love with perfect characters because there is nothing for them to overcome, and nothing to draw the reader into the story and invest their time in reading the book.

The hero – Avery Malveaux, while he’s wealthy and has the career he’s always wanted, he’s not living in a perfect world. Nobody does. Everyone knows money doesn’t buy happiness, so when it comes to finding the right woman, Avery has run into obstacles. While money can buy almost anything, it hasn’t bought him the perfect woman. I think readers can connect with Avery because who doesn’t want to find someone to love for a lifetime?



Men and women have always sought the promise that only love can offer. Jacki invites you into an intriguing world where romance abounds around every corner and down every street. You’ll be amazed at the crazy things we do and don’t do for the promise of love.

Jacki has been writing since her fourth grade teacher made her keep a journal for a grade. Now she does it to keep track of all the fascinating and heartbreaking moments that life throws our way. Poetry, personal essays, short stories and novels have all occupied space in her heart and her hard drive.

Jacki lives in the northeast where the winters are too cold and the summers are warm. But, she wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else, well maybe for a fabulous house on the sunny sands of Miami Beach in February. Her loveable husband and adorable floppy eared dog endure her long periods behind the computer creating happy-endings for her amazing hero and heroines. Romance makes the world go round and Jacki is enjoying the ride.
