BLOG TOUR ~ Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan‏

Meet Willow and Kane in the newest stand alone by Harper Sloan!

NOW AVAILABLE on the following retailers:

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.


I am a fan of Harper Sloan's anyway. But Perfectly Imperfect Blew Me away. 

Willow Tate is a girl we can all relate to. Me especially, reading this was like Harper was in my mind, saying my thoughts. I 100% connected with Willow. 

Willow is a woman who has no confidence she has been put down most of her life by the people who were supposed to love her unconditionally. She is constantly told she isn't pretty enough and is to big. ( I hate the word fat) Willow has heard it so much she believes it. She is a whipping post for her family's venomous words. Every strike is another mark on her heart. 

Kane Masters is very well known actor, he is gorgeous and swoon worthy, and Willow catches his eye. He is captivated by her curves and beautiful face. He sees the vulnerability in her to, and wants to protect her. When he meets Willow he sees first hand how cruel some people can be and are to her. When a 2nd chance meeting with her and once again he see just how her family treat her he vows never to let it happen again. 

Kane brings Willow out of her Shell and makes her see what everyone else sees. I Loved seeing Willow get her confidence back. Her journey is beautiful but heart breaking, because like I said I relate to her so much. 

I cried so much reading this some sad some happy tears, but well done Harper for writing this. So many women go through this every day, and feel alone. 

5 huge stars for this book.

“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.
