(Perfect Imperfection #1)
by Emily Jane Trent
Alpha male, Bradan Reid, will capture your heart and leave you breathless! Cami knows he is a bad choice, but is unable to walk away.
This STAND-ALONE novel is a Reid family romance. You will be swept up in this roller-coaster relationship. You'll laugh, cry, and fall in love!
Camille Joubert moved to Seattle to leave the pain of her past behind. She finds more trouble than she can handle in Bradan, who seems to be with a different woman every night. She’s trying so hard to “not do stuff that’s bad for her,” but her attraction to Bradan is too strong.
“Their eyes met and electricity went through Cami’s petite frame like a lightning bolt. His thick brown hair was etched with blond sun streaks, gleaming beneath one of the few spotlights in the room. His blue eyes captivated her. But it was his body that made her swoon. If he’d worn a blazer, it was off now. He had only a soft, pale shirt with several buttons open, and the cloth settled over his hard body. The gorgeous man was solid sculpted muscle, which couldn’t be missed even under the casual shirt. With his thighs, shapely under the dark pants he wore, and the way he leaned back with his legs apart, Cami couldn’t take her eyes off of him.”
Bradan Reid left to escape heartbreak, only to find his life changes when he meets the one woman he wants in his bed, and in his life. Will Cami tell him the truth? The secret she holds will either destroy their love, or save it. Is she brave enough?
Recommended for 18+ for adult situations and language.
Perfectly loved it! Two young adults, each searching for a new beginning and running from the pain of their pasts.
Amusing at times, gut-wrenching and honest ... you feel the pain each of our main characters feel. Cami is trying to start anew and re-build her life. For someone so young, she has already experienced so much traumatic loss and she no longer feels strong enough to deal with that level of emotion and anxiety. In an era when we are used to a strong female lead, Cami comes through as brittle, fragile and somewhat lost. She is trying to keep things from spinning off her control and feels very uncomfortable falling in love with anyone at this time. And then Gradan enters her life.
Gradan is your typical alpha player. A different woman every night, whiskey to drown in, dreams of making it big in the tech industry. Behind this bravado exterior, he is also trying to soothe his heart from the break-up of all times. This new life suits him, he thinks, because he has freedom, women swoon at his feet, and he has no feelings for anyone of them that can bring him complications.
Drunk on whiskey and glazed scallops adorning his pants, he is mesmerized with Cami the first time they see each other. The feeling is mutual! Our story grows from there as our characters learn to deal with each other as well as all the confusion they are feeling.
Emily Jane Trent is giving us another jewel from her magic pen. These flawed characters grow and change as they accept the inevitable. She gives us enough plot twists here to keep us on the edge of our seats until the end.
