Imperfections is Shaniel Watson debut novel which will have you turning page after page. The story is about unspoken feelings that began during the hero and heroine’s adolescent years.
Cat and Nick’s history extends far beyond what anyone who knows them is aware of. Just when they think they can pronounce their love for one another, a situation takes root. For Cat, relocating back home isn’t as glorious. Nick’s situation with a particular female becomes so complex that people in their social circle are shocked to hear their names in the same sentence. When Cat’s family becomes aware of her involvement with Nick, the plot thickens. This is one time when love doesn’t seem to be enough to endure all the heartache. Cat has much more too lose than Nick and there are times when he failed to truly understand this small detail.
As much as I enjoyed Nick’s character, there were scenes when he came across as a selfish, arrogant jerk. Luckily Ava, Nick’s first cousin and Cat’s best friend, calls him out every time. He could have ended the lies from the beginning but chose not to, which didn’t make sense. My thoughts started leaning towards, he’s enjoying having two females vying for him. I know this is far from the truth because he regrets having the one night stand. Readers, you will want to know the other male in Cat’s love triangle and his connection to Nick and just how far back they go.
I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading part 2. I’m curious to read about two particular characters, Cat’s mother and sister. They are a piece of work. Nevertheless, the lovers’ quarrel leaves one person distraught and a family torn because lies, secrets and betrayal.
