It's been a week and a half since I finished this.... I needed that much time to fully process the AWESOMENESS of it.
WOW, just WOW.... I was speechless after I finished this book. When I first met Brad in Present Perfect, he was, well let's face it, he was a JERK! The way he used Amanda to win his bet was downright cruel... But even with that, I still liked him. I think I saw in him the fact that he was just putting on a show. You could tell that he truly did care about her, but that something was holding him back. Well, we got the full picture of the story in Past Imperfect.
In this book, we get the backgrounds of our misunderstood Brad and a new character Mabry Darnell. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever guess that I would fall as hard for Brad as I did in this book. After all, in PP, I was TEAM NOAH all the way.... Well, Miss Bailey totally blew me away with the fact that I ended up being head over heals in LOVE with Brad.
This book takes place a few years after PP, and you can tell right away that we are dealing with a more mature Brad. He now has a new 'friend' in Mabry. I have to say that I instantly bonded with her character. I needed to know more about her character, but little did I know how dark her character would be.
You see, Alison has this BRILLIANT way of writing about topics that other authors don't. And just like in PP, she takes you on an emotional roller coaster.
The pasts of Brad and Mabry have helped to shape the people that they are today, but they have also held them back from being what they could be.
I LOVED the dual POV's and the way that the chapters went from Present to Past to give you the WHOLE story. It shows you how the two of them get to where they are, and allows you to see things as they develop.
The twist in this story BLEW me away, and was nothing that I expected.
I HIGHLY recommend this book, but only after you've read the AMAZING Present Prefect first... There are certain parts of this book that will not make sense to you, if you have not read PP.
We met Brad in Present Perfect, you may remember him as Smurffucker or as one of the evil B’s. Well, I may make all my Present Perfect friends mad, but I actually liked Brad in Present Perfect. In the beginning, I thought he was a Smurffucker, but the more I got to know him he grew on me. So naturally I immediately jumped into this one.
Past Imperfect is told from Brad and Mabry POV and the story alternates between their past and present until they merge.
We all know Brad was a dick in high school, but this story tells Brad’s backstory and what shaped his character. Brad had a troubled childhood and at a young age learned his parents never wanted him. So he is constantly trying to find praise through other sources, and that leads to a lot of bad decision and selfish behavior. Until tragedy strikes Brad and he is forced to re-examin how he is living life.
Mabry is still haunted by her past. While on the surface she is smart, sexy and successful beneath her perfect facade she is drowning.
Mabry and Brad’s both go to college, graduate with law degrees and their lives merge when they begin working together. Both individuals are immediately drawn to each other, but neither has a clue how to be in a relationship. Things begin as friends with benefits, but escalate quickly.
I guess some would call this insta-love, but with the way things are written with their pasts explained, it didn’t feel that way to me. It felt like their connection was real, even if it was quick. Despite things coming together quickly there is still so many things they have to overcome individually and as a couple.
Like Present Perfect this story has a ton of heart, but will not gut you or drive you to drink like it’s predecessor. I really enjoy this one and felt it had a great message, it just felt slow in some places despite being a short book. I still recommend this book, as I am a fan of Brad and the Perfect Series.
