Imperfection by Phaedra Seabolt
Publication Date: July 23rd 2013
Genre: Urban Fantasy
 Meara Falk always followed her parents' rules, until one night in March when the temptation to let loose changed her life forever. Nine months later, disowned and with a baby on her hip, she discovers werewolves are real after being on the wrong end of one’s teeth and claws.

When her first change is upon her, werewolves attack her home, stealing her son and driving her out of her home. Now she’s looking for the man who kidnapped her baby and turned her life upside down.

A war is brewing between the two packs with Meara’s son being in the center. Will she be able to get her son back before losing everyone she cares about?


Wow what a book. I usually stand clear of books that have babies involved, but this book also has werewolves, so I took a chance on it. I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next one because I know it’s going to be amazing. Well find out more about why Meara is the way she is and did I sense a little chemistry between Garret and Meara. Meep I hope so. They would be a good match.

Now that I have said all that let’s get to the story. The beginning was a typical good girl that decides to let loose a little and ends up drinking too much alcohol. She meets a hot guy and that she can’t resist and goes home with him. She needs to STAY AWAY from alcohol! Unfortunately for her he isn’t a good guy. He leaves her after he practically rapes her and that what does Meara think about that? She wonders if she was good in bed. And did he leave because she was bad. Are you kidding me! Really I think that was the only time I wanted to put the book down. Maybe I’m being too dramatic and it didn’t happen the way I read it, but it was a very thin line. As far as Meara growing in the book…she did, but it was slow going. She still seemed a bit hasty by the end but her protectiveness of her child made her strong. I am expecting big things from her in the next book, starting with killing that bastard Aren and his son. They make me sick. Oh man I haven’t even talked about the wolves in the book. There are Pure woves which are born wolve and then you have the made one, which they were bitten to become wolves. They can’t stand each other and they both want one thing….Meara’s son. *Que dramtic music* :D

Meara needed to grow up fast because she gets pregnant and her parents disown her. She has been sheltered her whole life and learns how to take care of herself. She doesn’t really think things through though, she just acts, which can be good in some cases, but most of them no. I felt a little connection with Meara but not enough to feel sorry for her. Oh I cringed when they took her baby, but she should have stayed and fought.

Amanda: I really liked her. She is very head strong and a loyal friend. She is the most kickass person in this book and you don’t want to take her on. Lol I kinda like her more than Meara at the moment. It may be b/c Meara is new to all this.

Rachael: She is the sweet one that blushes at everything. She is innocent and adorable. It’s sad what happens with her. L I hope that whatever happens next with her, she will be happy.

Leon: I don’t know whether to hate him or like him, so for now, it is both. He decided a little too late that he wanted to be a good guy. He is on my list for the time being until he fixes what he has done.

Garrett: I’m looking forward to seeing more of his hunky werewolf self in the next one. He doesn’t seem all that bad and I think he would be a great match for Meara (if he wasn’t so stuck on Amanda) He is a bit of a perv though. LOL

Overall: A fast paced read that has all the elements that I love in a story.

As I got closer to Oak Street, I realized someone was following me. Another jogger is enjoying this beautiful winter morning. He passed me quickly and then stopped. Turning around to face me, I realized I recognized him. His features seemed so familiar to me. He had shoulder length brown hair that was stringy with sweat from his jog. His eyes, though, were an amazing shade of blue. They were what seemed the most familiar to me. They weren’t quite topaz blue, more icy and clear.
I stopped and stared at him, trying to figure out if he could possibly be my baby’s daddy. He began walking toward me.  His massive shoulders swayed as he moved gracefully. Something just didn’t feel right about this entire situation. He looked very similar to the guy I saw in my dreams as being Julian’s dad, but I remembered his eyes being a darker shade of blue. I had also thought he was even more muscular, but boy, I just couldn’t remember exactly. It was all a drunken blur.
“Hey, there. Don’t I know you?” the guy asked as he towered over me.
I could feel my breath coming out in short gasps as I tried to formulate a sentence. “You seem very familiar, but I’m not sure.” My heart was beating wildly, and I wasn’t entirely certain it was from the jogging anymore. Something really felt off about this situation. Looking around, I realized that the campus seemed more empty than normal.
“Yeah, I feel the same way, but I know I’ve seen you somewhere before. Oh, wait…were you at Skipper’s on Green Beer Day?” He was standing right in front of my stroller now. His eyes seemed to be looking for something in my face as he quickly glanced down into the stroller.
“Yeah, I was there a few times that night, although I don’t remember a lot of it. That was one crazy night. It changed my life forever.”
“I can see that. Cute kid. A memento from the evening in question?”
“Uh…yeah.” He kept looking at Julian as though he recognized him. He lifted his head and cocked it to the side a little as he knelt down to get a closer look.
“So where’s his daddy, or do you not know who that is?”
“Oh, he’s around. He’s doesn’t have to worry about losing baby fat like me, and Julian likes to get out, even in the cold.” I hoped that the truth about worrying about baby fat and Julian enjoying our jogs was enough to convince him that the daddy was still in the picture. I could feel my heart speeding up and my palms sweating. This guy could not be the father. There was no way that alcohol could have hidden how much this guy bothered me. I needed to find a way to get away from him. Looking around, I still couldn’t see a single other person around.
He looked up at me through his thick eyelashes. There was this little twinkle in his eyes, and the left side of his mouth quirked up a little into an evil looking smirk.
“I think that you have no idea who his daddy is. For all you know, I’m this kid’s father. Actually I think I am and I think I want my son…now.”
Faster than I ever thought I could move, I grabbed Julian out of the stroller and took off running down Oak Street. The recreational center was down this street, so there had to be someone out and about down here. Someone was always heading in to exercise no matter what time of day it was.
I sprinted as fast as my legs could carry me. They were burning from the exertion, and my feet felt numb from pounding on the pavement. The cold air was no longer comforting as it burned inside my lungs. My cheeks were getting colder by the second as I realized tears were freezing on them from the frigid temperatures.
I no longer heard the sound of footfalls behind me. It almost seemed that maybe he had given up the chase, so I slowed down slightly to look over my shoulder. As my eyes found the sidewalk behind me, the biggest dog of my entire life leapt into the air.
He was solid black with icy blue eyes. His sheer size made me think that he must be part wooly mammoth or some equally large creature. A growl ripped out of his throat as he crashed onto my back. His fully extended claws pierced into my flesh and latched onto me. The instant pain caused me to scream as the smell of blood began to coat the air. I came crashing onto the pavement with only one thought.
I must protect Julian.
Julian began to scream as we landed. I tried to twist my body in order to keep him from hitting the ground in any way, but also trying to cover him to keep the dog from getting to him. Once on the ground, the claws tore away from me, leaving a sickening sound of ripping flesh echoing all around us. I could feel my warm blood running down my back thick and fast. I didn’t have time to think about how much blood was beginning to pool around us when the dog growled again and sunk his teeth into one of my thighs. My body was going numb from all the pain and adrenaline, but I had enough feeling to bring my other leg up and wildly kick towards the massive jaws trying to drag me down the street. One of my kicks connected, causing him to release my leg. I must have angered him even more, though, because the next thing I felt was the dog digging into my side as his jaws latched onto the side of my throat. I could taste the blood as it squirted out my jugular and into the hole in my jaw. It was warm, metallic, and thick. I tried to swallow it back down, but it never quite made it to my throat.
The dog started shaking me like a chew toy, and Julian started squirming against my too-tight grip. His cries distracted the dog from his fun, and he tried to dig into my side to get to my baby. Just as the world was starting to go black, I heard shouts from people nearby and a gunshot. The dog was gone almost instantly and I was left in a puddle of my own cold blood. My rescuers were able to get to me before I was completely gone, saying that I would be okay now and that help was on the way.
If only I believed I would make it that long.
