About the Book

 

Book Title: Imperfect Promisesnei5 Imperfect Promises

Author: Elizabeth Noyes

Genre: Action, Suspense, Romance

Release date: August, 2018

Award-winning romantic suspense author, Elizabeth Noyes raises the bar in this stunning conclusion of The Imperfect Series!

Former Special Forces operative, Jonas Cameron, traded his past and his service for his family back in Idaho and the ranch he loves. But ghosts have a disturbing way of not staying where you leave them.

Shea Townsend is on her way to becoming a chef extraordinaire until her father’s illness pulls her from culinary school and back to Montana to care for him. After his death, disinherited and alone, she sets out to make a new life for herself, one which may or may not include the too-alpha, too-sexy Jonas Cameron.

Jonas learns of a homegrown terrorist threat against him and his family at the same time a mysterious stalker sets his sights on Shea. Determined to neutralize both dangers, Jonas calls on old friends for help and draws upon his own very specialized skill set to end the menaces to Shea and himself.

As the danger escalates, secrets are revealed and the truth emerges in a deadly cat and mouse game with Shea caught in the middle.

Fast-paced action. Heart-pounding adventure. This is not your ordinary romantic suspense story!

My Perspective

 

This was a great adventure, fast paced novel with a romance, danger and surprises. First of all, I really enjoyed Jonas’ character. He is fiercely protective, and definitely someone I would want on my side. He had his issues as well, and it was neat to see him work through them in the story. Perhaps that most intriguing part of the book was the terrorist threat and stalked story lines. The author makes these stories so real and believable that you almost feel as if you are living through it. It is scary and eye opening at the same time. It makes you think about things a little differently, and I love it when a fiction book can do that.

If I had one complaint, it would be that Jonas and Shea came together a little bit too quickly in the beginning. With the past of Jonas leaving abruptly, I thought there would have been a little bit more hesitancy on Shea’s part, and thought it would have added to the dynamic of the story. But that is really my only beef. I liked their characters together, they worked well together and had wonderful chemistry.

This book was so much fun to read. I enjoyed the guessing aspect of it. Who the bad guy was, what was going to happen next, or how the two story lines were going to come together. When you get to the end you’ll find yourself surprised. Not only will you be wrong about the bad guy, because the twists and turns pull you in different directions, but you’ll be satisfied with how Jonas and Shea have grown as characters and how their futures look to pan out. Although it is book give in a series, I believe it could be read as a stand alone. I have not read the prior books and I did not feel as if I was lost or confused. However, I will say that after reading this book, I am intrigued about the other stories so hope to go back to them at some point!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Imperfect Tie Between Characters, Themes, and Titles

I love reading across all genres. If it’s well- written, I’m an easy catch. What I don’t like is when fictional characters are portrayed as model-worthy with perfect looks, perfect physiques, and perfect personalities. Yuk! I’ve never met a perfect person.

To quote Mark Twain, “The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction needs to be credible.”

I want characters with the same flaws as you and me—judgmental, short-tempered, guilt-ridden, egotistical, defiant, withdrawn, too-skinny, compassionate, couch potatoes, foolish, silly, serious, low self-esteem, arrogant, hurt, guilty, deceiving, generous… in other words, real people. These are character traits I relate to, and they come alive on the pages, giving hope that we can also learn from our mistakes and grow into something better.

The characters in the Imperfect Series let themselves and others down. They struggle with life issues, make poor decisions, grieve over mistakes, and then pick themselves up and go on.

In Imperfect Wings, guilt and low self esteem plague TJ, while her male counterpart, Garrett, struggles with anger issues. In Imperfect Trust, yeah, trust was a problem for both Lucy and Wade. With Imperfect Bonds, Cassidy fights for her sister’s forgiveness as she deals with feelings of inadequacy … both of which carry over into her relationship with Derek. In Imperfect Lies—yep, another obvious theme. Lies from the past come back to haunt Mallory and James.

In the final book of the series, Imperfect Promises, the main male character, Jonas, is by a nature a control freak. He suffers from guilt over a perceived failure when at his deepest core he is a protector and perfectionist. Shea, the female protagonist, rose from the ashes of a devastating childhood to forge a new life for herself. Both discover that promises made to themselves and to others can’t always be kept. Despite best intentions, life sometimes gets in the way.
