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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Most women (myself included) have had some sort of body image issue(s) at some point in their lives. If you are included in the ‘most women’ this is a story written for you with a character you’ll be able to relate with. Harper did an excellent job writing about something that is prevalent in our society, yet not spoken about very often. Willow’s story of self discovery, moving forward and loving herself isn’t always easy, but it’s a beautiful tale.
Willow Tate is having one of the worst days of her life. She’s getting divorced. And one of her biggest tormenters is not only there to witness it, but is part of the reason. Blessing in disguise- that is what this divorce is. And at her lawyer’s office, she knows why. She meets someone named Kane Masters. She knows who Kane is right away, he’s famous. And he seems to genuinely like Willow. The fact that someone like Kane could like someone like Willow blows her mind at first, but it is also a catalyst in her changing her life an accepting herself.
Willow and Kane get thrown back in the same place at the same time once again. And it just so happens to be another awful day for Willow. This time is different though. Willow speaks her mind and stands up to those who bully her. Kane witnesses it all. He can’t believe anyone would treat Willow this way. Kane is in Hollywood and surrounded by people who aren’t real all day long. Willow is a breath of fresh air and someone he wants and desires.
Willow and Kane’s relationship is one of patience, understanding, trust and love. I love how much Kane is there for Willow. He gets her and her issues and he supports her wholeheartedly.
I love to read and when I read, I love to feel a connection to my characters. I love that I felt that connection with Willow. She and Kane weren’t perfect characters, but they were perfect for each other. I loved the characters and the growth Willow had. Kane was as near perfect as a hero can get.
This book had a wonderful message- being perfectly imperfect is okay. It’s okay to embrace the things about you that you don’t love. In fact, some of the very things you are self conscious about just may be the thing that someone else falls in love with. It’s a story that gives hope, a story that is about being brave, standing up for yourself and changing the way you see yourself. Thank you, Harper, for tackling such a difficult topic. Well done!
I know that our world will be full of imperfection, but I’ve found my little slice of flawless love and happiness here in Kane’s arms. His love makes every second yet to come of our perfectly imperfect life something I know will never get old.
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.
