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.
Review by: Amy C
"I, Willow Tate, have won." Isn't that the statement we'd all like to say? That we've won...at life, at love or in business. This book was a lesson learned in self love. Love yourself first and only then can you be free to love others. We all have a Willow hidden with in us. She screams, she cowers and she gleams when she's allowed to. Harper BLEW ME AWAY with this book. She tapped into a place I always knew was there but was never able to verbalize. She brought out so many feelings throughout the course of this book. She pushed my personal limits and helped me to grow toward loving the skin I'm in, instead of who I thought I needed to be.
I WANT KANE MASTERS!! That man was amazing and heartfelt. He broke all of the stereotypes. I was moved by the fact that he wanted to to be free to love who he wanted and not what was expected. He thought outside of the box and faced challenges with both a caveman and graceful approach. He was a great match to offer strength when it was needed and to step back and allow the people in his life to shine. He was perfectly ambitious and swoontasticly debonair.
Willow....amazing Willow. She was everything to so many. She was strength and courage masked by timid fear. She made me feel so many feels that we're so personal. Willow was not just a character she was an awe inspiring woman that wore so many hats. She searched for love and acceptance in all of the wrong places. Until the least likely person stepped in and became her life line. That person to catch her when she was about to fall but most importantly to be her biggest cheerleader as she grew into herself.
This book was an amazing sounding board for the lonely, for the girl that never feels good enough. The woman that needs to finally love herself enough to break free. I admired both Willow and Kane in their effort to both come into themselves and to grow as a couple. This book was so wonderfully written and brought in so much realism to me as a reader. I was able to connect with the characters and felt everything that Harper tried to convey. Her writing has a warmness that caresses feeling to come and out and be felt on every level. Harper can write greatness, but this book shows her growth as an author. This book is an absolute recommend and so appreciated for what it represents.
5 MAGNIFICENT STARS. Find "strength in the face of weakness."
“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.
