Imperfect Love is revolves around Holly Scallanger, a 24 year old with everything a girl could want...that is until she catches her fiancé in bed with her worst nightmare - Fonna Sinclair - a week before her wedding. Attempting to recover from everything, Holly swears off men, which is pretty hard since meeting Jake 'Hooligan' Peters is not a part of her plan. Jake Peters, a med student, sweeps Holly off her feet - and away from her past - and shows her bright future. That is until she ends up pregnant with Jake's baby just as he is beginning his internship at P&E, his family's hospital.
Will this love be the happily-ever-after she has always craved? Or, will her heart be betrayed all over again?
I really don't know what to say without spoiling the novel but I will try. The story starts with Holly, the heroine of the novel, finding out her fiancé was cheating on her again. Instead of falling for his apologies and promises, like she did before, she broke things off with him. After packing all her things, she stays with her best friend Bernie. After Holly had some time to mourn her relationship, Bernie and her husband, Leo, decide to take Holly camping with them. It is ultimately there that Holly will meet Jake. Tall, sexy, green eyed Jake. They instantly become attracted to one another and know they will be seeing more of each other before the night is over.
The novel seemed to sweet and romantic, and Jake was like every girl's dream of the perfect boyfriend. The humour within the novel made it even more of a light and airy read. But then out of nowhere this book ripped me apart. The last 30% of the book left me crying and despising the fact that this perfectly amazing novel had left me like this. Despite the anger and sadness, I pushed on. There is no cliffhanger but this novel will make you want to know what is going to happen to the characters from this novel. Seriously I can not wait to pick up the sequel.
I recommend this novel to you all. Seriously pick it up and read it today.
