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.

5 Star 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

#I am Willow.

To be honest I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about reading this book. You see I am Willow and I have always had my own image issues. Having said that I was really interested to see how Harper Sloan would handle this subject; one I know she is extremely passionate about. 

I have to say Ms. Sloan came right out of the gate at full speed. Wow!!!! I said that so many times whilst reading this book, (that was when I wasn’t crying or nodding my head in agreement). 

This is a stand- alone novel about the journey of Willow Tate and Kane Masters. 

Willow has had a tormented and at times tragic life, it is what has made her into the woman she is today. Kane is a man who knows what he wants and will leave no stone unturned to achieve his goals. When he sees Willow he knows that there is a connection, so deep that he has to pursue it. Kane sets his sites on Willow Tate, he has no idea of the rocky road he is about to travel nor does Willow realize that her life is about to change in so many ways it is too numerous to count.

I loved the vulnerability of Willow and at times I cried for her, I cried for myself and for all the woman (and men) who have faced and are still facing the issues in Perfectly Imperfect. This book was an emotional roller-coaster ride for me, making me face my own fears and imperfections time and again.

I fell in love with Kane, and I would be surprised if there were many that didn’t. Yes there were ups and downs. Hardly surprising given the subject matter at the heart of the story, but Harper Sloan kept pushing through the barriers and when they were finally knocked down and smashed apart, it was inspiring.

This is Harper Sloan writing at her best and I cannot recommend this book more highly. Well done Harper Sloan, if I could give this book 10 stars I would. 

This is one of those books that touched me on so many levels right down to my soul; you have my admiration and gratitude for having the courage to write this book. I don’t know if you fully realise just what you have done for so many, myself included. Simply put, thank you Harper Sloan from the bottom of my heart and soul.

5 Star 
I was given this book for a honest review
This book is one of the best I have read this year. What makes it special is its written from the heart. Harper Sloan has given us a woman that most women will relate and connect to and as you read this book you can't help falling in love with Willow Tate in fact if you are like me you will feel like she has a bit of you inside her......
Willow Tate has been tormented most of her life about her weight, the husband cheated with her sister, her mother died and her stepfather hates her so she keeps her head down and hopes that she can get through her life unnoticed.......
Kane Masters is a man we all want to meet and fall in love with or more to the point have him fall in love with us. He is kind and knows just what to say and do to make you feel beautiful within your own skin.
This book has its ups and downs but you just need to go with the flow.
I'm a plus size girl and this book showed me I'm not weak, Be proud of my curves and hold my head up high.......
Harper Sloan I thank you from my heart for giving us Perfectly Imperfect #IamWillow

“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.
