It’s finally my turn to review the blooming AMAZING Perfectly Imperfect! Meet Willow and Kane in the newest stand alone by Harper Sloan!
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.
Harper Sloan is just so fabulous and this book perfectly illustrates just how much! Perfectly Imperfect is the kind of book that grabs hold of your heart and won’t let go because not only is the story and Mr Masters utterly perfect, it’s also a story which we can all relate to.
Willow has spent her life seeing only her imperfections. Having lost her mother at a young age she has only known the poisonous words and actions of her step father and sister. When a handsome gentleman asks her to marry him she thinks he’s her best chance of being happy and throws herself into a married life with him. Little did she know he would be just as cruel as her supposed “family” are.
Left broken, she embraces the realisation that she isn’t the type of girl who gets a fairytale ending and readies herself for a life on her own. But when Kane Masters enters her life just as she hits rock bottom, she’s surprised to find out that he has no intention of letting her go.
Willow always thought she was too imperfect for someone like Kane but with every minute she spends with him she soon realises that those imperfections are the exact reason she is perfect. Will Willow find her happy ending with her own handsome prince?
There are too many ways to say how much I love this book, so I better keep this short before I start rambling. It’s a story that will resonate with you because the truth is we all have a bit of Willow inside of us and reading a story where that part finds happiness is always going to be wonderful. And having a leading man like Kane Masters certainly helps as well…I mean, Wow *fans self*. I think we could all use a Kane Masters in our lives, and if I could be half the woman Willow is I’d be a very happy lady.
Read if for yourself here…
“Are you nervous right now?”
“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.
About Harper Sloan
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.
