Heartwarming romance with a great message....

Any additional comments?

First and foremost I must mention the performance: 5 well-deserved, I love Zachary Webber and Shirl Rae stars!!! This is my first Harper Sloan book, and my primary reason for buying it was because of this duo of narrators. If you haven't listened to a book narrated by either of these exceptional performers, you are missing out!

The books itself was great. I loved the characters...especially Willow and her phoenix-like rebirth. She was a destroyed woman...kicked repeatedly while she was down. Her rise and redemption was a thing of beauty.

The story was rather like a modern-day Cinderella. Willow's meltdown at her stepfather's company was sad but satisfying. Her return for closure was a thing of beauty that made me want to start high-fiving anyone in my vicinity!

The romance between Willow and Kane was sweet. Willow denies Kane's interest initially because she can't imagine why the perfect male specimen of a movie star could desire her. As Willow slowly becomes comfortable in her skin (a voluptuous size 14), the romance blossoms and sexual tension builds.

The only thing that I didn't like about this book was the time-skipping. There were events particularly during the building of the romance that should have been detailed. Large chunks of time were missing and glossed over with only a passing mention. This made the story choppy. I get that it had to take place over years, but there are more seamless ways to accomplish this. Cutting out the nitty-gritty of a courtship in a romance novel is a bad move. Sloan, I hope you have an ex-editor you hate for having done this to your book.

With that said, Perfectly Imperfect was a good romance read. Well worth a credit.

This was the best of all her books

This book is an erotic, romance novel. Loved every min.

I have to say this one really had me in tears and screaming all within five mins. The story between two people was so strong and the abuse that one person has to overcome just to be free of the past.

Willow use to know unconditional love through her mother but as she grew and her mother remarried, she soon became acquainted with a love that came with conditions. Starving and striving to give all she can to retain the love of her step father after her mother's death is a long dream that will be come to light. The emotional abuse of her stepfather and sister can only force willow into a shell.

Kane a man of the Hollywood spot light is looking of the one girl, a dream of finding the woman that he plays in every movie. When he finally finds her and await for her to lick her wounds so he can come to her rescue, he finds himself in the tabloids scandals. As stories from the press make him look bad when only trying to help a friend, Willow wants nothing to do with someone like Kane, sexy as sin and is no way in her league. He still will not let go of the hope that Willow is strong enough to believe the truth and to trust him.

Love, love, love this book. The characters are well defined and the emotions of each charter are truly a work of art. This book is not like her other, were there is a lot of action and violence, this book is awesome.

So this is a hard one for me. I really loved the idea behind the story, especially after looking up inspiration pictures on Pinterest. It was such a nice change of pace from the stereotypical heroin in a book. I think the twist at the end was well played out until the epilogue, then I got lost again.

I think the author tried to get her point across so much that it came across as redundant. I felt like screaming... We get it! He loved her for who she is! And it seemed quite unrealistic for him to be so incredibly patient dealing with such behavior Willow about her body image.

Ok, negatives aside... It was a great love story. I am so disgusted with her families behavior towards her and it was hard to listen to knowing that there are people who treat others that way. Worth a listen, definitely entertaining.

It was just ok...

The story was very predictable and didn't give much of a story plot, I felt like the story was ending before even begun.If it wasn't for the narrators being amazing I'm not sure if I want to finish the book. To tell you the truth the only reason I even bought the book is because I adore these narrators they're amazing.

Whatt a Debbie Downer!

I gave this book 12 chapters that I will never get back. Typically, the audio performance of Zachary Webber can save any audiobook from mediocrity. However, nothing could make this book good. The female lead spoke so negatively about herself, going on ad nauseum about how awful, fat, ugly, and worthless she considers herself. One can not help but wonder how any hero can love a heroine that fails so utterly to lover herself. Frankly, I am frustrated, slightly depressed, and over it. I don’t read or listen to romances to be depressed. I read and listen to romances for escapism and the HEA. If depressing is your go to literature, you’ll adore Perfectly Imperfect. (I’ve never read a character that hated herself as much as Willow.) If you prefer your romance without the self-loathing, avoid this book and audiobook at all costs.

This book makes my heart go pitter pat!

Why did I wait so long to read this book?

It's unusual to find a romance book that resonates so deeply with me... I don't usually connect with the heroines in most of the books I read because we have zero in common unless we have blue eyes or brown hair. Beyond that... they don't look like me...

Willow Tate is my fictional hero. I hope that I can exude the confidence and courage she portrays by the end of the novel in my lifetime.

Kane Masters is not like most men in real life, but he's pretty spectacular for a fictional Hero.

Harper Sloan has a captivating way to grab you by the heart strings and hold on until the last breathtaking moment.
