FREE BOOK Review: Picture Perfect (Picturing Perfect Book 1) by Alessandra Thomas

Book Blurb

Fashion design major Cat Mitchell has a closet full of gorgeous clothes - and not a single thing fits. After two years of runway modeling for easy cash, an accident shattered her lower leg bone and her self-esteem in just one swift fall. Ten months of no exercise, prescription steroids, comfort eating and yoga pants meant returning to campus as a size twelve instead of her former size two.

When her gorgeous long-time friend with benefits sees her for the first time after her accident and snubs her in front of all her friends, Cat’s self-image hits rock bottom. Her sorority sisters all insist that she looks gorgeous, but all Cat sees is the roll of her stomach when she sits down, or the dimpling at the back of her thighs that wasn't there last year. Cat’s therapist prescribes something radical to stop the downward spiral - nude modeling for a nearby college's human form drawing classes.

When Cat faces her fears and bares it all for the class, she realizes that she's posing naked in front the most gorgeous, buffest guy she's ever seen in her life. He asks her out after the class, and after one steamy night and six weeks of perfect dates together, Cat's absolutely smitten.

But when Cat goes home with Nate for Thanksgiving, she discovers something shocking from his recent past that proves that he hasn’t always been so encouraging of women of all shapes and sizes. Cat has no idea what to think, but she does know one thing - this might destroy their relationship before it's even had a chance to get off the ground.

Before Cat can figure out whether the real Nate is the sensitive, adoring guy she fell in love with, or an undercover asshole, she'll have to finally feel comfortable in her own skin - even if it means leaving him forever.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I truly liked Cat’s situation.  She was a very thin model and after an injury gained weight.  She is no longer the same size and has no idea what to do with herself because her size defined her.  The story was real in how she was treated and how she reacted.  It really pointed out how you know who your real friends are and when you need them the most.  I also like that the author had her in Therapy but showed a realistic view.  Going to therapy is good but not an easy fix.  Cat wasn’t ready to do the things her therapist wanted her to do.

Nate was an awesome character and how they met was very interesting.  Cat was horrified at first until she understands the situation.  Her view is so skewed when it comes to her self-image and how she thinks people see her.  I love how Nate helps makes her strong, even in ways he truly wasn’t expecting.  Both had issues to work through and communication wasn’t as good as it could have been.  The whole ending was awesome.  It needed to happen in order for Cat to get to where she needed to be.  It was a great read.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
