Imperfect Love by Rebecca Talley Review & $25 Amazon or Paypal Gift card Giveaway
Lauren Wilson is well on her way to her happily-ever-after. She has a career she loves, a husband she adores and a baby on the way, but a devastating diagnosis changes everything. The life she’s built suddenly crumbles around her when her husband insists she choose—the baby or him.
Returning to her small hometown to rebuild her shattered life, Lauren crosses paths with Ethan Campbell, the man who stole her teenage heart. The old attraction is still there, but Lauren won’t admit it to anyone—least of all herself. Her only priority is providing a life for her child, and she can’t afford to get it wrong. Ethan is confusing everything, including stirring up feelings she’s not prepared to face. Will she spend her life raising her baby alone or is the family she’s always wanted finally within her reach.

Rebecca Lynn Talley grew up in the gorgeous seaside city of Santa Barbara, CA. She met, and married, her husband, Del, while attending Brigham Young University. She graduated from BYU with a degree in Communications. She currently lives in rural Colorado on a small ranch with a dog, too many cats to count, and a herd of goats. She and Del are the proud parents of ten wildly-creative, multi-talented children.
Rebecca is the author of a children’s picture book, Grasshopper Pie (WindRiver 2003), a children’s chapter book, Gabby’s Secret (DuBon Publishing 2011), four novels, Heaven Scent (CFI 2008), Altared Plans (CFI 2009), The Upside of Down (CFI 2011), and Aura (DuBon Publishing 2012). She has also authored numerous children’s stories and articles for both print and online magazines.
When she isn’t writing, Rebecca loves to date her husband, play with her kids, swim in the ocean, and dance to disco music while she cleans the house. She has folded at least one million loads of laundry, baked hundreds of batches of chocolate chip cookies, and eaten 5,478 gallons of ice cream.
My Review: Imperfect Love by Rebecca Talley.
Imperfect love is a good clean drama dealing with real problems. It is easy to say I would make this choice when we are not in that situation. It draws out emotions. I wish that the ending could be different but I think it was right one.
Lauren Wilson is a strong character. She is facing some tough choices and chooses what she feels is right for her.
Lauren has been hoping to have a baby for a long time and now it looks like her dream is coming true. Lauren teaches middle school.
Paul is Lauren's husband. He works for his dad in his law firm. Paul is almost never home. He works long hours. He does not want to have this child and wants Lauren to choose to have abortion.
I want things to work out for Lauren. I like her. She knows that having a baby and being a single mother will be hard but she already loves her baby.
Lauren's mother tells her that she will retire and help Lauren with the baby. She wants Lauren to move in with her.
One thing that I was concerned about was how fast everyone was about Lauren finding someone else to date and be with it. I think that was rushing her into making decisions before she was ready.
I did not want to put this book down till I had finished reading it. It was a fast read.
The setting was Colorado modern times.
It is a good story that draws you into their drama and does not let you go. It also had some good humor too.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it.
