**BT & Giveaway** Perfectly Imperfect ~ 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.

“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.

There has never been a hashtag have so much meaning to me and thousands of other people as this one does.
I am not writing a review of the book, because in my eyes, the best review would simply say READ IT!
I am truly and deeply affected by this book and what Harper Sloan brought out into the public eye. This is a subject that is front and center in today's society and I fully believe everyone should read this amazing story. Yes, it is a love story, but the underlying subject of body image and the awful things anyone who suffers from any sort of issues with their own body, or even life events that may cause them to think they are not worthy should read this. Everyone needs to learn to live within their own skin and not let the way they look, what size they wear or don't wear, and what society thinks everyone should look like affect them. Life is too short to live unhappy. And I can say, in my own past life events, #iAmWillow. Thank you Harper Sloan for opening up yourself and helping so many people with this story!

Perfectly Imperfect is a story that will speak to each and every woman who opens its pages. As a reviewer we can sit and we can give you our opinions on this book, but I think I can say bravo Harper Sloan. she's left herself wide open toa ll of her readers and gave them a peek inside of her and showed us that she herself experiences the same doubts that we experience. Not just readers, but women as a whole. I can say without a doubt that #iAmWillow 
Pick the book up and read it. It will be the best thing you've ever read.

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.
