“Another brilliantly written winner. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up, you will not regret it.” —Kate Stewart, USA Today bestselling author
Perfectly Adequate, an all-new must-read romantic comedy from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!
Dr. Elijah Hawkins needs … something.
After his wife jumps headfirst into a midlife crisis, he’s left with his young son, Roman, and a lot of unanswered questions.
That something turns out to be a someone—Dorothy Mayhem, nursing student, patient transporter, reckless driver, and emu owner.
Dorothy studies humans, the neurotypical kind, through books and television. Then she emulates their behavioral patterns to fit in with her peers.
But nothing can prepare her for Dr. Elijah Hawkins.
Brilliant pediatric oncologist.
And the sexiest doctor at the hospital.
When his failed attempts at asking her out turn into a string of playdates with his son, Dorothy finds herself unexpectedly enamored with the boy and his father.
And that’s a problem, a huge one, because Elijah’s ex-wife is a famous plastic surgeon—and Dorothy’s idol.
Perfectly Adequate is a beautiful, hilarious, and heart-felt journey along the “human” spectrum.
Dorothy Mayhem! What a character and what a woman. She’s been diagnosed with ASD and it affects her socially, how she views her surroundings and interact with people. She has no filter whatsoever and that definitely made me giggle numerous times because of her honest outbursts whether it was during sex or because she couldn’t tell a lie. There’s no doubt that Dorothy is a good and sweet human being. She sees the best in people and values the small things in life.
Elijah is swept off his feet when he sees and talks to Dorothy in her color coordinated clothes and her red Nikes. Intrigued and captivated by her and he’s totally inexperienced when it comes to asking a woman on a date.
Dorothy and Elijah is amazing and so much fun. He doesn’t look at Dorothy as a person with ASD no he looks at her as Dorothy. The most kindhearted and best woman on the planet. She has her routines and structure which can be difficult for some to accept and grow accustomed to but for Elijah it’s a fresh breath of air. For him it’s all about Dorothy.
Elijah has a son Roman who Dorothy hits it off with immediately and it doesn’t hurt that she has two emus and a dog.
Perfectly Adequate is a cute and hilarious romantic comedy. Once again Jewel E. Ann accomplishes writing a special story with well developed characters who have so much heart. She handles ASD with care and her portrayal of Dorothy is honest and heartfelt. Perfectly Adequate is a gorgeous treasure.

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.
With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.
After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.
When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
