Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretendingthey 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.
 

While I ultimately enjoyed this book, there are parts that I had mixed feelings about.



First, I've read Harper Sloan before and was blown away.  I think she is a fantastic author.  And when I read her letter to the readers at the beginning of this book, I just felt like.... like she was such an awesome and strong person.  Like I couldn't wait to read a book that she, herself, was able to identify with so much.  It was quite emotional and touching, and I loved that she opened herself up that way.

I love the character of Willow Tate.  There were times that her body image got on my nerves - but that's how it is.  She blossomed from something she hated into a strong woman that she loved, and that's great.  It seemed a bit... I don't know, easy.  Like she hates herself, then she meets Kane and he loves her, and ergo, she should love herself.  I don't know. Either way, I love that she wasn't perfect.

As for Kane, I loved him too.  He seemed like a true, fierce, and genuine person.  However, he is a famous actor.  Had I known that, I probably would have shied away from the book.  Lately my tastes tend to go away from billionaires, celebrities, and rock stars.  To me, it just doesn't feel like the real world, and so it's not one of my preferred genres.  As for the man without the celebrity, he was pretty awesome.  And I love that he had dark hair - I'm so over blond men lol.

I loved the story, and I loved many of the characters.  At over 400 pages, there are a lot of things I could have done without.  It began to feel a bit long to me.  Maybe I am just used to shorter reads.  However, the extended length really allowed for a multitude of situations to play out.

All in all, I was happy. The main characters were likable, and they definitely had chemistry together.  There was an abundance of "bad guys" to hate, and that was fun for me too! Hello, Ivy, I'm talking about you, bitch. Ahem... Anyhow - I think this is a book that will speak to a lot of women, and I'm glad I took the time to get to know Willow and Kane!

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.
