This for sure is a story about growth, acceptance, and of course romance. I loved the way Sal’s character turned things around in the end. I enjoyed this addition to this series and recommend all of them!

Cardeno C did it again…make me have so much feels that the story just touched me.

This book is really about second chances and realising your opportunities when they present themselves and grasping on to them. ....I enjoyed this story a lot. It has a strong message that life is too precious to throw away and you should enjoy...

Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

Perfect Imperfections is another winner for Cardeno C. This story is a perfect blend of romance, angst, hot sex and sweet loving! I've recommended this book to all my friends ever since I finished reading it I loved it that much!
