There is a rule in book conservation: You must never do something perfect. Perfection is forgery. Once a page in a book is torn, the tear cannot be erased. Joan dreams of the man who will erase all her imperfections, even though she’s sure that’s against all the rules of love, too. She decides to fall for a seductive psychopath who she knows can make her perfect—but she doesn’t know the price she will have to pay.
