Perfect!*****This is a spoil free review**** As usual, Colleen Hoover tells us an original story about love, loss, secrets, mistakes and healing. This is the story of Quinn and Graham. They meet under unusual circumstances and they fall in love. It is so very hard to write this review. All I can really say is: go in “blind,” meaning don’t read reviews, don’t get caught up in the hype. Take your time and savor the words that are beautifully written. It will be emotional, but in the end it is worth it. Hold on tight because you are in for one hell of a ride. “If you only shine light on all your flaws, all your perfects will dim.” Quinn and Graham have an amazing story. It is told in alternating times of “then” and “now.” A few chapters are written from Graham’s point of view. Their story is written so beautifully. The words flow from chapter to chapter. I felt as though I knew them. I shared in their laughter as well as their grief. Graham is thoughtful and wise. Quinn is hopeful and positive. Together, Graham and Quinn face the struggles that life throws their way. However, there is an unexpected situation that will test their love and commitment to one another. Pain, guilt, anger, shock and denial is wrapped up in a snowball that is slowly melting, leaving all of these emotions in their wake. And to be honest, I’m tired of swimming upstream. I love the way he looks at the world through a pair of calm eyes when his life is in complete turmoil. To Colleen I say, wow! I don’t know how you do this. You continue to amaze me every time you publish a book. Every book, including All Your Perfects, are original, fresh, and thought provoking. You climb into my heart and take up residence there. You bring so many emotions with you. You draw us in and weave the story like a spell. To the readers I say: Do not be afraid to read this book. It is an amazing piece of Colleen Hoover’s heart. Embrace it. “When you meet someone who is good for you, they won’t fill you with insecurities by focusing on your flaws. They’ll fill you with inspiration, because they’ll focus on the best parts of you.” 5 stars
