Emma, Tyler and Shane have been best friends since they were kids. Along with their college addition, Rob, the four friends have an exciting life in NYC. In fact, Emma Sloan appears to have it all.
Despite being happy with her current situation, a big family announcement leaves Emma questioning whether she is truly content with her life. With her thirtieth birthday fast approaching she vows to find her ‘perfect’ man any way she can. But Emma will soon discover that the path of true love never runs smoothly and that sometimes, instead of chasing love, you have to wait for love to find you…
Perfectly Perfect! (Sorry couldn’t help myself ;))
But seriously, I knew this was going to be a good a read from the beginning – I found Woodward’s prologue fresh and unique, and I absolutely loved her pacing, it was perfect and made IMPERFECTLY PERFECT a quick and very satisfying read.
It was so nice to be able to relate to a main, New Adult, character who was so close to my age and stage in life. Emma, our main character, is a very complicated, in her late 20s, she's more focused on professional success, than Romantic. If I’m being completely honest, I found her hard to like, especially in the beginning. She’s very confident in herself (a trait we don’t see in most New Adult heroines) but at times I thought her confidence bordered on conceit and she was a bit hypocritical towards Cheyenne considering her flippant attitude towards poor sweet Eric. (You’ll have to read the book to fully understand this last statement ;))
I really enjoyed the family dynamic between Emma and her Mom. There’s a huge disconnect between these two, a lack of understanding on both ends, but despite this they still share a deep love that only a mother and daughter can.
Now my favourite part, Shane- I loved this man! And I really enjoyed how up beat he was. He just seems like the kind of guy who can keep you blissfully happy and at the same time, grounded. I always enjoy the storyline of love blossoming from friendship!
I need to take a minute to mention just how jealous I was of Cheyenne's close relationship with all the men (and roommates) in her life, I've always thought it'd be fun to live with a bunch of boys, but my friend who did live with four men, assures me it is not all sunshine and roses, haha.
IMPEFECTLY PERFECT was a great, fast read for me and it came to me at the "Perfect" time. I would recommend this to all New Adult fans who aren't afraid of a tad older main character.
