Review: Imperfect by Willow Winters

Imperfect Imperfect by Willow Winters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 "Ummm... What???" stars!!

I'm here at the end of this book and I'm still confused. It wasn't until I got to the end when the story got a bit clearer but the gaps were still huge. But that's just me.

Julia's in mourning. She lost her husband, her high school sweetheart, in an accident. One night, over drinks, she meets Mason, who promises her a night to forget all her woes. This one-night stand inevitably leads to more, however, Mason's holding on to secrets that could destroy their budding relationship.

I had a few issues with the story:
1. Julia's grief and her hesitance to move on were ridiculous. She felt like she was cheating on her dead husband. See, that would be understandable under normal circumstances. But she found out that her husband was cheating all over the place. He had an apartment she didn't even know about. C'mon chica. Firm up. Gird up that spine. Stand tall and stop being foolish. Shoot, he didn't sound all that amazing despite all of this.

2. I absolutely hated Julia's POV. Hated it. It was a bunch of rambling, repetitive nonsense.

3. I didn't like the way Julia treated Mason. Yeah, he was keeping things from her, but SHE didn't know that. Therefore, he didn't deserve her manipulations. And her judgmental friends were definitely NOT helping matters. I swear, all the females in this book needed a good beat down. Knock some sense into them. By me.

4. The only person I knew and understood was Mason. It's funny to me that the only likable person in the entire book was the one doing the most lying. But his POV was real so he had that going for him. Oh and he was the only one who underwent any character development. Julia came from money but I still don't know how. She appears in the paper all the time but I can't figure out what about her warrants notoriety. And beyond Jace being a cheating bastard, who the heck was this guy?

Whatever... I'm off to read book 2 to get some answers.
