Review: Imperfect (Sins and Secrets #1) by Willow Winters
Publication Date: May 15th, 2017
Rating: 3.5 stars
Fate brought us together, but the sins of my past threaten to rip us apart.
In a city ruled by corruption and powerful men, only the ruthless survive.
And that’s just what I am. Like father, like son. The life I lead is riddled with black tie affairs and dark secrets.
A simple mistake destroyed a woman I knew nothing about. She was only a name and a beautiful face in a photograph. Her fairytale life was shattered, but I didn’t give a damn. Or at least I thought I didn’t care, until she stumbled into me.
One look, and I was tempted. One taste, and I was hooked.
It wasn’t supposed to turn into this. She’s a good girl from the Upper East Side, innocent and naive. She’s ashamed to be moving on so quickly. Especially with a man like me. Someone who could tarnish her sterling reputation and make the crack in her picture-perfect frame splinter even deeper. We both know this was only meant to be a one-time thing.
But I’ll never have my fill of her.
Now she has me wrapped around her little finger, using me to get through her pain. I’m addicted to her soft moans and the way her nails scratch down my back.
I’m starting to need her just as much as she needs me.
I’ll protect her from the truth as long as I can.
But even if she finds out, I’m not letting her leave me.
She’s mine now.
Imperfect is the first book in the new series, Sins and Secret Series of Duets by Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author Willow Winters. It is book 1 of a 2 book duet
This is the first book by Willow Winters I’ve tried out, and I must say I was a bit disappointed. Imperfect wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t my favorite either. The first half of the book was very slow, and even now that I’ve finished it, I’m still unsure of what to think of Jules. I mean, I get what she went through, but the way she acted I feel as if maybe less time should’ve passed by before the book started. Jules was just one of those female characters that’s hard to connect with, and one that I wanted her to be stronger. Mason was okay too. I didn’t love him, but I also didn’t hate him. To be honest, I had an idea of what he was hiding about halfway through.
Like I said this one wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. Maybe I just didn’t connect with the characters, and maybe with the next book Jules will grow on me. Honestly this one is hard to review because there were things I liked, but I don’t want to give anything away. I just hope the next one isn’t as slow paced and both characters grow more.
