Imperfectly Perfect (Series of Imperfections #1) by A.E. Woodward
Imperfectly Perfect (A Series of Imperfections Book 1)
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...
Imperfectly Perfect was an alright read. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. I did really like the ending and how this was not the normal romance in a lot of ways. I like that Emma did not have the "normal" happily ever after in a lot of way, but it works for her.
Emma, Tyler and Shane have been friends forever. In college they added Rob to the mix and the four of them live together in New York. They are happy with their arrangement and none of them can imagine doing anything different. Sure lots of people don't understand why some almost thirty somethings are still living together like college kids, but it works for them. At least it does until Emma realizes that she might actually wants parts of a normal life.
When Emma goes home for a visit she learns some things that make her realize even though she is happy with where she is and what she is doing, there are some other things that she does in fact want out of life. Some things she never really considered before. So when she gets back she starts to try and find the things she is missing.
While she was gone one of the boys realizes some things as well. And when Emma gets back he tries to talk to her. Unfortunately she doesn't want to talk and before long it is too late for him to tell her what he wants to. It was interesting enough to read I guess, but they way it was written didn't really drawn me in that much. It was like I was just observing people I didn't really care about. One thing that was a bit perplexing to me was apparently Emma only ever dated guys who cheated on her. Ever. She says something early on like after the seventh or eighth time it happened and I was just like what? Really? You are obviously terrible at picking guys cause that is just a bit crazy. Oh well, she seems fine regardless of all of that. There were no issues with her trusting guys or anything even though she has only been with people who cheated on her.
Things do work out in the end, and like I said above I liked that everything didn't change just because a few things did like I was expecting. An alright read, but nothing about it really pulled my into the story. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either.
