Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review and participation in a virtual book tour event hosted by I Am A Reader.
Lauren Wilson is well on her way to her happily-ever-after. She has a career she loves, a husband she adores and a baby on the way, but a devastating diagnosis changes everything. The life she's built suddenly crumbles around her when her husband insists she choose—the baby or him.
Returning to her small hometown to rebuild her shattered life, Lauren crosses paths with Ethan Campbell, the man who stole her teenage heart. The old attraction is still there, but Lauren won't admit it to anyone—least of all herself. Her only priority is providing a life for her child, and she can't afford to get it wrong. Ethan is confusing everything, including stirring up feelings she’s not prepared to face. Will she spend her life raising her baby alone or is the family she's always wanted finally within her reach?
My Book Review:
Lauren Wilson has a job that she loves, a loving and successful husband, and after two years of unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant, she is finally going to have a baby and the happy ever after perfect life that she has dreamed about since she was a little girl. But Lauren's world will turn upside down when an ultrasound reveals a devastating news that makes her husband Paul give her an ultimatum: him or the baby! Forced to make a difficult decision, Lauren chooses to return to her hometown to start her life over with her baby. Struggling to pick up the pieces of her life, a chance encounter with Ethan Campbell, an old high school crush, leads to the rekindling of a friendship and a second chance at love.
Imperfect Love is a breathtakingly beautiful and emotional story of a mother's unconditional love for her child and a second chance at an imperfect but fulfilling love. Author Rebecca Talley does a wonderful job of drawing the reader into Lauren's life as she struggles with real life issues and the disintegration of her marriage when a traumatic test result in her pregnancy that leaves her no choice but to make a difficult life changing decision. Lauren's journey is filled with joy, heartbreak, choices, struggle, courage, friendship, love and redemption.
Imperfect Love takes the reader on an emotional journey where no emotion is left spared, you can't help but get swept away in this powerful and compelling tale of unconditional and imperfect love.
RATING: 4 STARS ****
