Book Description:

In Present Perfect, Brad Johnson was sexy, cocky, rich and a complete Smurff**ker. He could afford anything he wanted and could charm any girl he set his eyes on. Everything was laid out in front of him, all for the taking except the one thing he craved and needed. A tragic event forces him to reevaluate his life. When he tries to change, will the people in his life let him move on from his past or will they constantly hold him to the life altering mistakes he’s made?

Mabry Darnell is intelligent, ambitious, beautiful, and sassy. Secrets from her past haunt the present causing her to question her actions in order to shield her heart and protect her life. 

From the moment Brad and Mabry met, their connection was strong, intense, and electrifying. Both knew they had found the one person who could satisfy what the other ached for. When their pasts collide with their present, will it prevent them from having a future together or will love be strong enough to conquer their demons?

Christine's Review: 

So if you've read Present Perfect you know that Brad is, well was a smurff**ker and if you haven't read it...why the hell not? Past Imperfect could be read as a stand alone however I don't recommend that. 
Present Perfect is currently on sale, so go pick it up! 

Okay, well I absolutely fell in love with Present Perfect so I couldn't wait for this novel when Alison announced it. Although Brad was a total a$s, I knew he could be redeemed and Alison did not disappoint. I love the author's style with the dual points of view and alternating from past to present which really helped connect you to the characters. Seeing Brad's past gutted me and I seriously wanted to throat punch his parents. It really made you understand and sympathize for Brad. A tragic event did cause Brad to reevaluate and change but thankfully he didn't lose that hot cockiness about himself. It didn't take me long to fall in love with Brad. 

Brad and Mabry's story is funny, sweet, gut-wrenching, tragic, heart warming and beyond sexy. So basically you will be sent on an emotional roller coaster but it's everything you look for and need in a book. Alison touches on some sensitive subjects which she tackles beautifully. 

I am a sucker for epilogues and I will say that this book has to have the BEST one that I've EVER read! Once I finished, I went back and read it again it was that ah-mazing!! I didn't want it to end. 
This is a must read!! I give Past Imperfect - 4.5 wamfu bookmarks.

About the Author:

Alison was born and raised in Charleston, SC. As a child she would create (write) additional scenes to TV shows and movies that she watched. She attended Winthrop University and graduated with a major in Theater. While at school she began writing one act plays which she later produced. Throughout the years she continued writing and producing several one act plays, but then life got in the way and she hung up her pen for a while. At the end of 2012 a very talented author friend convinced Alison to go back to writing and see what happens. So she did and fell back in love with it. Present Perfect will be Alison's first self-published book. A few personal facts, Alison loves anything sweet, especially frosting, and is addicted to Diet Pepsi. Alison's philosophy: Don't let your obstacles define you. At times life can get pretty overwhelming, but with a great support system and a lot of humor you can get through them. If you have humor in your life your spirit stays strong and you can tackle anything.
