Perfectionist (n.)-someone doomed to disappointment For a person convinced second best simply won't do, all of a sudden Jocelyn "Joss" McBride can't seem to win. Not in the battles with her snippy Siamese or skirmishes with the fire-breathing dragon who's her mother. Or even more annoying, losing advertising awards and clients to the infuriating Hugh Brannon, her not-quite-perfect ex-lover whom she, um, sort of lost, too. Well, enough already. Like any overachiever, Joss is determined to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat-meaning beating Hugh, of course. Unfortunately, her attempts at evening the score bounce right off the Teflon man and a new suspicion dawns-if life was absolutely perfect, wouldn't it be a bore?
