Meet Willow and Kane in the newest stand alone by Harper Sloan!
NOW AVAILABLE on the following retailers:

Blurb
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.

My Review: 
 Perfectly Imperfect is one of those books that everyone should read. In our day and age where image is everything, a lot of people end up with body issues and low self esteem. This book speaks to the person who has these issues and tells them that it is okay. It's a beautiful story that pulls at the reader's heartstrings. I'm happy i got the chance to read this one because it is one that will stick with me forever.
Willow has been beat down all of her life. The only love she was experienced is with her mom and her two best friends. It's sad because she has a sister and step father but hey treat her like she shouldn't exist. Stuck in a life she never planned on, Willow is truly unhappy. Willow takes a journey in this book. Willow finds herself and realizes the person she truly is. With the help of her friends and her new love, she takes the steps to her new life. What makes Willow's story stand out is it is something that most of us can relate to. We can understand what it's like to have low self-esteem. We understand what it like to not love yourself. What it's like to have people feed your self hate. Willow's story says to us, "Hold on, your happy ever after is coming."

This book is a HUGE message to the world. But I think some time should be devoted to Kane. I need to find my own Kane. This man is every woman's dream and probably everyone's new book boyfriend. Kane a movie star and built like a greek god. I would say picture Chris Hemsworth. Kane has a heart of gold and is fiercely protective of those he loves. Kane is quite possibly the most perfect book character.

The story is supported by Willow's BFF's Kirby and Eddie. They are there for Willow and want to ensure her happiness. When it comes to Willow and Kane, Eddie says it best, “It’s so beautiful to watch him bring you to life.” It is beautiful and I happy to have read this story.

Harper Sloan shows that she is a versatile author. She can write ├╝ber sexy stories and she can write ones that make you want to cry, laugh and scream from the rooftops that you have to read this book. Sloan proves with each book why she is a best selling author, her books rock. 

My overall thoughts are that this book needs to be added to your "Must Read Immediately" lists. You will not be disappointed because the book is really that good. 

My Rating:
5 out of 5 Stars!!!


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.


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.
