Imperfect Love Blog Tour!
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?
Author Rebecca Lynn Talley
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.
Wow. This book tore me up! But in a good way. As a mother, my children are my life. I love my husband and he loves me but we both acknowledge that the moment that they each came into existence, they became our priority. Lauren is a woman after my own heart, she puts her child above and before all else. I can't hate her husband for his choice to not parent a special needs child. If you don't believe that you can handle it, you probably should not try. Not everyone has what it takes to parent a special needs child and every child deserves a loving and appropriate home. But just as not every parent should parent a special needs child, I believe that there is someone out there for everyone. Lauren deserves this love and support too. She finds it in her childhood crush who has returned to town. I loved Ethan's sweet and honest personality. He is just adorable and just what Lauren needs. I really appreciated this story, even though it was a bit rough on my heart at times. Rebecca is also a writer after my own heart. I really love that she has a large family with lots of pets. I feel a type of kinship with her and it made the story even more real for me. All in all, I can not wait to read more from this author and I loved this book!
