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.

I just want to start by saying what this author has wrote in this book is a beautiful emotional story that affected me and connected with me on a personal level to the point where it could have been wrote about me. I'm also sure it will also relate on a deep and meaningful level with a lot of other readers out their and for that this author deserves 5* ratings and for putting so much of herself into this book. I've always loved Harper's books but this one was more of a personal connection for me. For 7years until a few months ago I was in a relationship with someone who mentally abused me day after day. He never ever got physical but sometimes people don't need to raise their hands to break you. For years I've suffered with my image and how I feel about myself and unfortunately I was with someone who made that worse. Like I say no one knows that about me but I did get out of that relationship but like
that still doesn't change everything straight away and today I still really
struggle, but that's why this book was so good because I could really connect.
Anyways this is
and Kane's beautiful story. I loved Kane, he was this big mega star but was so
down to earth and him and Willow
together made a beautiful couple. The chemistry and connection between them was
electric and I especially loved the build up of their relationship and how Willow
grew as a person because of Kane and because of herself. I don't want to say to
much more as i feel it needs to be read yourself to fully appreciate this book.
Full of drama and emotions and some sexy chemistry mixed in with some real tough times this book is truly brilliant and I myself want to thanks this author for writing such a personal story that many woman out their can relate to.
“Are you nervous right now?”
“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.
