Overview

In Present Perfect, Brad Johnson was sexy, cocky, rich and a complete Smurff**ker. He could afford anything he wanted and could charm any girl he set his eyes on. Everything was laid out in front of him, all for the taking except the one thing he craved and needed. A tragic event forces him to reevaluate his life. When he tries to change, will the people in his life let him move on from his past or will they constantly hold him to the life altering mistakes he’s made?
Mabry Darnell is intelligent, ambitious, beautiful, and sassy. Secrets from her past haunt the present causing her to question her actions in order to shield her heart and protect her life.
From the moment Brad and Mabry met, their connection was strong, intense, and electrifying. Both knew they had found the one person who could satisfy what the other ached for. When their pasts collide with their present, will it prevent them from having a future together or will love be strong enough to conquer their demons?

Editorial Reviews

Reviews by Tammy and Kim - Kim Bias
I was not sure Alison could top Present Perfect since it was one of my fave reads of 2013 and totally took me by surprise, but I think she managed to write another story that is unique and amazing in its own right. I highly recommend these books. They are very well written, the characters come alive from the pages, and she throws in surprises and twists that make them even more interesting.
Mean Girls Luv Books Blog - Stephanie (Lo)
Once again this book is written beautifully. I felt everything both of these characters felt. My heart dropped. My hands tingled. I cried. I laughed. I wanted to throat punch Ms. Bailey a few times, but I still love her. She redeemed herself. It is unique. This story is not the same story I have read over and over again. Brad and Mabry are characters all their own, and the fact that Bailey took a character most of us despised and made us fall in love with him is amazing.
Three Girls and a Book Obsession - Stacia Newbell
This book is sexy, funny, emotional, and at times even gut-wrenching. It deals with some very serious subjects, which Alison handles beautifully!! Plus I have to mention that the ending and epilogue is probably the best that I have EVER read!!

Meet the Author

Alison was born and raised in Charleston, SC. As a child she would create (write) additional scenes to TV shows and movies that she watched. She attended Winthrop University and graduated with a major in Theater. While at school she began writing one act plays which she later produced. Throughout the years she continued writing and producing several one act plays, but then life got in the way and she hung up her pen for a while. At the end of 2012 a very talented author friend convinced Alison to go back to writing and see what happens. So she did and fell back in love with it. Present Perfect will be Alison's first self-published book. A few personal facts, Alison loves anything sweet, especially frosting, and is addicted to Diet Pepsi

    Present Perfect was an emotional roller coaster. I went to wanti

    Present Perfect was an emotional roller coaster. I went to wanting to smack the main character to absolutely sobbing over the situation she was in. I was physically exhausted when I finished because of all the feels. I had an idea of what I was getting myself into when I began Past Imperfect and, while it wasn't necessarily the roller coaster ride that Present Perfect was, I still felt the feels. They were just a little different than the ones with Present Perfect.

    Brad and Mabry were a powerful duo. They both had tumultuous pasts and were keeping secrets. They've both done things they're not proud of. Despite their attraction and their connection to the other, they're still both afraid to be completely honest with the other, which leads to some problems, as you can imagine. I think what impressed me most about these broken characters and their relationship with each other was the pure NEED between them. I'm not just talking physical need here, either. Yes, there was that lust. (My word was it hot!) But it was more than that.It was like they were each other's air. They were better together, stronger together. 

    I adored Mabry, don't get me wrong. She was complex and interesting. She had problems, and I desperately wanted to help fix her. But Brad was, without a doubt, the star of this book for me. What we're shown here is a completely different side of Brad than we saw in Present Perfect. I suspected there was more to him than met the eye, but when I look back, I don't think I expected him to be quite like this. I love when an author shows me the softer, better side of a character I had issues with in a previous book. Bailey does that here with Brad. Fans of the first book will definitely appreciate his growth and, if you're like me, might get a little choked up at his reminiscing about Amanda. 

    I loved every single thing about this book. It flowed well. The dual POV was fantastic. Both characters had a clear, distinct voice. I don't always love flashbacks in a story, but it really worked here. I felt like I got the full story of both characters. I want more of this series. I don't even care which characters it involves. Alison has earned a spot on my "auto-buy" author list. I'll be anxiously awaiting more form her in the future.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Great

    Initially I was not going to read this book. Didn't like Brad, why would I want to read his book. So glad I did. It was awesome. Loved the epilogue.

    Disappointing

    I absolutely LOVED the first book Present Perfect. I could hardly wait for this one. I am so disappointed. Both characters are so flawed and depressed. I couldn't get past page 80. I expected it to get better but it was just a dark, negative book.

    Past Imperfect is actually quite perfect. 

    This anticipation for this book was nearly killing me. After reading Present Perfect, I couldn't wait to get my greedy little hands on this book. It was so worth the wait! Oh my word, cam Alison G. Bailey tell a story. A story that will grab you by the throat and the heart. Brad was a despicable person in Present Perfect.  In Past Imperfect, he is a man trying to change for the better. He made me smile, laugh out loud and yes, even cry. I am thinking it won't be an Alison G Bailey story, if we don't cry at least once. ;) And Mabry. Poor beautiful, sweet, tortured, but deserving to be loved Mabry. She is so much stronger than she realized. It just took Brad to show her that. This book deals with some heavy subject matter. It's dealt with in such a beautiful and believable way. I am so proud of the way the author handled what is a very tough subject. I absolutely adored this book. Bravo,Alison. You are brilliant. I am so thankful you decided to take up writing again. Your voice deserves to be heard!!  I can't recommend Present Perfect and Past Imperfect enough.
