5-stars for Perfectly Imperfect by Fabiola Francisco
Interesting and Unique.
This is an interesting book with unique pacing. Unlike some romance novels with only one pivotal moment, this one has several. In the epilogue, Grayson, the story’s hero, says, “The last year has been a hectic ride. Crazy ups and downs like a rollercoaster.” How right he was. This book takes the reader through quite the emotional journey.
Mia, the book’s heroine, is dealing with some serious hang-ups and issues with her past. She is damaged. There’s no doubt about that, and occasionally, I wanted to smack her for making terrible decisions (especially at those pivotal moments). But her imperfection makes her human and lends credibility to the story. Luckily, Mia has one smoking hot hero to help her deal with her issues. Grayson is dreamy and one can’t help but fall in love with him. He has some demons to deal with as well, but he’s loyal when it counts.
If you want a book that breaks from the tradition of sugar-coated fairy tales, this is the one for you. Real people come with baggage, and this author knows that. Her story paints a realistic portrait of two imperfect people working through their issues to find a perfect love.
