Natasha is engaged to Josh, her childhood sweetheart and the man she’s loved almost all of her life. Her future seems all planned out, but she’s not sure it’s what she really wants.
When business commitments take Josh overseas, Natasha and Gabriel Owens, a partially sighted artist, are thrown together. Despite their immediate clash of personalities, there is an undeniable intrigue between them.
As an unexpected twist of fate leaves Natasha reeling, she finds her life in free fall. Does Gabriel have the tenacity and inner strength to pick up the pieces when he himself has so many insecurities and his own life is far from perfect?
Will they be able to piece together one another’s perfect imperfections?
Perfect Imperfections by J. & L. Wells was such an emotional read. This was my first book by this author duo and I enjoyed it.
Natasha is so close to walking down the aisle. Things are falling into place. She is marrying her long-time love, Josh. After ten years, nothing can go wrong, right? Before the wedding, she gets a painting done for her fiancée. But she is the one that is surprised when her world is turned upside down after unexpected events. I liked her determination. Even when dealing with so much family drama.
Gabriel is the artist who will create the painting. He is partially sighted and they do not hit it off at the beginning. Add in his own insecurities, history and fear of losing what little vision he has left, he is not always the friendliest person to meet. But as Natasha and Gabriel spend time together, they slowly begin to form a friendship of sorts. And as her life begins to fall apart, she learns she can lean on him.
I enjoyed the story, but did find it a bit slow at times. But once things began to move forward, it does pick up. I eventually found myself just wanting to know what would happen next. Overall a good story. There were some light moments but also some very emotional ones. Natasha and Gabriel had quite the journey.
