Title: Her Perfect
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 1, 2019
Her Perfect is unlike any forbidden student/teacher romance I’ve read before and I’m not sure how I’m going to do this book justice with my review, especially as I don’t want to talk specifically about the plot. For that reason, my review will be short and vague. I was not prepared for what happened between these pages and my enjoyment of the story was even better because of it.
This story is deep and multilayered, raw, heart wrenching and gripping. SO much more than I was expecting. With each page I turned, each new revelation, it drew me in. It’s a story about relationships, those than heal and those that harm, with a wonderfully talented young woman at its centre. It’s about striving for perfection when you don’t feel good enough. About how, even in the midst of a crowd, you can feel totally alone and invisible, until finally, like an answered prayer, that one incredible person sees you for who you really are, the unique shining light in a sea of sameness and conformity. That one person who then becomes your champion, willing to sacrifice everything because they believe in you.
“I just need you to know I see you. I want you. Every perfection and every flaw. I love all of you equally.”
Touching and inspirational, I don’t hesitate to recommend Her Perfect.
Everyone has secrets. Although, I was a master at concealing mine. But part of hiding was deception, and I’d become a veritable Pinocchio.
He was like two different people—Eli and Dr. Paxton. While I knew the latter would turn out to be an incredible teacher, the idea of Eli being more threw me for a loop. I couldn’t separate the two, and it seemed vastly inappropriate and strangely alluring.
The practical side of me needed to win the war inside my mind. I had to please the teacher, not the man. But once I’d cross that line, there was no turning back.
For either of us.
