Perfectly Imperfect 
Harper Sloan 
~ Synopsis ~
Mirror, mirror ... who's the fairest of them all?
I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn't grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all 'mean girls.'
And those mean girls were right - it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world - and I knew the answer would never be me.
The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.
The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.
Well, that's definitely not Willow Tate.
No. That will never be me.
Because I'm completely imperfect.
And ... I hate myself.
I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.
~ Excerpt ~
“Are you nervous right now?”
I nod.
“Tell me why.”  His demand, steady and calm, gives me the courage I need to tell him.  To open a vein and bleed my insecurities.
“I’m not perfect,” I whisper.
“And neither am I, Willow.  I don’t want perfect.  What so many see as perfect, to me, is fake.  Perfect isn’t achievable naturally.  No one, and I mean no one, is perfect.”
I’m shaking my head before he’s even done speaking, but one long finger comes up and presses against my lips before I can speak.
“No, let me finish.  There isn’t beauty in perfection.  It’s as fake as the image the word projects.  Beauty is found in imperfection, Willow, because to admit you’re not perfect means you’re admitting you’re not whole and absolute.  When I think of myself, I see someone willing to admit he’s as far from complete as it gets because, in order to get to that perfection, I need to find the other part of me who will make my life better.  To take all the faults I have and fill them, and only then will I be there.  You see, the way I see it, the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”
When he stops, I swear I might have stopped breathing.  How am I supposed to respond to that?
“Do you trust me?” he asks, his voice strong and sure.
“Yes, Kane.  Nerves or not, I do.”
“Then let me show you what I see when I look at you.”

He brings his hands up, framing my face once again in a way I’m quickly becoming addicted to the feeling of.  His warm eyes implore, begging me without words to let him continue.  I do not intend to stop him, regardless of the butterflies currently taking over my system.  I’m all in.

~ Review ~
THIS book speaks volumes!  It is most definitely a MUST read and I am positive that everyone would benefit from reading it.  There is a bit of knowledge and truth contained in this book for everyone to take away something from it.

You can tell that this book was personal to the author as the struggles cited were very real and relatable.  We should all strive to become perfectly imperfect.  There is a bit of Willow in all of us.  #IAmWillow

Willow has been emotionally battered and verbally abused by those you would expect to love her most.....her family.  Who knew that a chance encounter on what she deemed one of the worst days of her life would allow her to find herself, love and happiness.

Kane stole my breath for more than just his good looks and charm.  His level of understanding and ability to see past the physical into the depths of her soul was unparalleled.   His protectiveness and reassurance of her ability to find herself gave her the confidence to connect with her inner strength and face the demons of her past.  Her ability to learn her own self worth and love herself was beyond moving.  

There isn't much more I can say about this book without giving away parts of the story line....which I will not do.  Please, if you only read one book the rest of this year....make it Perfectly Imperfect.  This is most definitely is a Top Read of 2015 for me and will stay with me for a long time to come.

Well done Harper Sloan! Well Done!

 ~ About the Author ~
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
