This is the second book I have read by Deaton. Even though it is the 4th book in the series it can be read as a standalone. Zoe and Tim’s friends are from the first three books and are mentioned in this story, but you do not have to read those stories to understand this one. Should you read them? Yes! Tarina Deaton is quickly becoming a favorite new to me author.
Imperfect Heart is super cute, super fun and super sexy. Tim is a small-town police officer while Zoe is ex-military. Zoe’s family sucks. Plain and simple they do not have her best interest at heart. Her best friend Elba is exactly what a best friend should be, caring, fun, and smart. Even the old lady across the street, Mrs. Wilson, seems to care more about Zoe than her own family.
While reading this story I laughed out loud, got a little teary eyed and found myself nodding my head in agreement many times.
“It was…nice. She didn’t have an issue with being taken care of. At least, not in the sense that she was helpless or wanted someone to provide for her, but having a guy who worried and wanted to make sure she was safe…? Yeah…that was hot.”
I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to read the others in this series.
