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 answer would always be 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. I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

Good story, not so good female narrator
I loved the male narrator, Zachary Webber, and it's a shame he was not narrating more of the book. The female narrator's male voices were grating! In fact, I had to stop listening on several occasions because of it.
The actual story was really excellent, telling of a woman with little body-confidence, gradually accepting herself, and her body as she became a stronger person in general. The love story was sweet and very hot! Wear your earbuds!
The intrigue aspect was a good plot device too, although I did guess who the father was.
Overall, a good story, but it was slightly letdown by the female narrator.

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.
