I really liked Shannon AFTER she left her abusive relationship. Though I would have like to see how she found herself after she left that relationship. She was a meek woman with her ex, but when you see her next, she’s this strong woman who is determined to take care of herself.
Ethan Stone is a ruggedly handsome, broken solider. He’s a drunk who can’t seem to get over what he experienced during his tour of duty (which considering what he’d seen, is totally understandable). After he causes a fight in Shannon’s bar, he’s now the new bartender (which probably isn’t the best idea for an alcoholic)
I enjoyed the characters, but the relationship between Shannon and Ethan, I would have liked more depth. First they can’t stand each other, and then next thing you know, their ripping each other’s clothes off. They don’t really know each other and don’t really spend any time together, but they’ve fallen hard for each other. I would have liked to see their relationship develop a little more before the I love you’s start popping out.
As I said, there were some good things about this book, but I wish there was just more. I think that if the author went more in depth with the characters (especially Zeke, Stone’s son, who just comes out of nowhere) this story would have been better. As always, don’t let my review stop you from reading this book though, just because it wasn’t my favorite, doesn’t mean it won’t be yours!

Shannon is a girl that has had a hard time, her past relationship wasn't all that great, and is now managing a bar her father left her.
Both thrown together in a way, Shannon realizes that Stone needs help and she is the one to help him.
This story had some really great sexy time, and it kept you interested. I did have some issues with the time line, and there was one major issue I had; but maybe that was just me and you guys won't even notice. For those issues that I did have, I have to give it a 3.5.
I LOVED the story itself, the bones of it, the characters, the relationships. I didn't love the confusing back & forth that kept happening. At least in the beginning, it felt like the POV was coming from the wrong person for certain aspects of the story. It made it hard to connect w/ them, because the scenes were told from the reactionary party's POV rather than the person acting. This meant that at first both Shannon & Stone seemed completely off-kilter & I couldn't get a grip on them. This annoyed me.
As the story progressed, this got better, and I was able to lose myself in their world. I really enjoyed the twists (even tho I figured them out way before our characters!) & thought they were all very clever. And once I got swept away in the story, I liked it. : )
Shannon is a woman who got off an abusive relationship with her ex-boyfriend and went back hometown to tend to her late father's bar.
Ethan Stone is a drunk war vet who suffered from PTSD. The surprising part of Stone is he isn't a brooding jerk, he mostly is a drunk-a$$ jerk who is quick with his fist. I like the fact that this is the first time I actually read about a desperate drunk that have problem recovering.
Stone got into a bar fight at Shannon's place and then he was put into work by his friend's Keets as payback for Shannon. It didn't take long for them both to get in between the sheets. Honestly, due to Shannon's past, I thought it will take longer to get into her pants.
I admire the fact that Shannon want to help Stone to get better and be there for him. So I understand why Stone will fall for this woman. But as for why would Shannon care so much about Stone while barely knowing him? I don't get it. He reminds me of her ex, with his drinking and bar fights. I thought she should be more caution. Honestly, he is not such a great catch. He was basically a mess.
Meanwhile, we have an sudden appearance of Stone's son and a shocking revelation about the truth behind Shannon's father's death. Stone's son, Zeke is an angle that I wish the author could explore more on it. I always love reading on father-son relationship.
Overall, I think as per the title, is an Imperfect story for me, but nonetheless it was quite an interesting quick read.
