The title grabbed my attention quickly. A novel that teaches us that there is beauty beyond the imperfections. I guess that can be easily captured in a romance genre. Thank you for your review!

I'm not a reader of romance, but I can't deny this sounds like a beautiful story. Interesting element to the story, the protagonist taking on a man's name. Thanks for the insightful review!

This book sounds interesting. There’s romance, love, art, mystery and betrayal. I like how it’s not a typical romance story. The characters seem intriguing. I also love the book’s title. Thanks for your review.

In This story writer beautifully reflected the émotions and sentiments of love, jealousy etc in a very attractive manner while studying at the university of Toronto as a freshman. I really enjoyed it. It has a great charm and attraction to its readers like its attractive name .

The ver first moment I saw the title and cover, I 've got the feeling this was not a tpical romance. I am glad your review confirmed my first impression. I'm anxious to read more about Keith James and her controversial relationships with both Lucien Montreux and David.

The book sounds interesting, although I'm not really looking for a romance novel right now. They can make for emotional and quick reads and I love the promise that it won't be the traditional love story, but I've gotten my fill of such stories lately. Thank you for the helpful review.

I love your review. It's detailed enough to make one read the book. As a romance fan I guess I will enjoy the twist in this one.

Sounds like an enjoyable romance story for those who enjoy such. I'm not sure this is for me though.

Beautiful Imperfections is a catchy title that attracted me. Until I read the sample and the review, I was wondering what could be the storyline. It's truly said that there is beauty even in the imperfect things. Though I don't like romance novels, this one might intrigue me due to its connection to art. Thanks for the elaborate review.

The title of the book is so intriguing. I would love to read the whole book to get the whole story of how Lucien who had been a teacher and a mentor to Keith quickly turns out to be her love, how David rekindle her love for Keith and who Keith ends up with. As per the book, imperfections is art and people can be beautiful. Great review!

Judging by your review, Beautiful Imperfections seems to be an atypical romance story with well developed characters that are sure to resonate with the readers. Just as the title suggests, this is a story about flawed individuals but it is up to the readers to behold the beauty in them. I will definitely pick up this book. Thanks for the review.
