I have LOVED everything I’ve ever read from Freya Barker, but have never read KT Dove so this was a perfect chance to experience a tried and true favorite author and a new to me author and I was not disappointed!! Filled with the emotional punch and characters so real it’s like you’re sitting right next to them that I’ve come to expect from Freya, and then the edge of your seat suspense all topped off with a beautiful love story Ideal Image was a book I couldn’t put down!
After recovering from severe burns, single mom Stacie is slowing beginning to come to terms with her new appearance. For Nick, seeing Stacie again is a blast from the past. The unobtainable girl from college has moved to his small town and is now rightbthere everyday. After a bit of a rocky start thanks to misunderstanding his shyness, these two quickly start a blossoming love that is one of pure beauty. So many things in this book touched my heart. The love between Stacie and Nick being just part of it. There was so much love and kindness with family and friends mixed into a suspenseful mystery that leaves you gasping!
Both with their own insecurities Nick and Stacie’s relationship was one of two perfectly imperfect people who learn that the way we see ourselves isn’t actually what the rest of the world sees. Nick was still just as deeply attracted to Stacie as he was ten years before, and Stacie was drawn just as intensely to the man she hadn’t noticed when she was younger. The adorable relationship that blooms between Nick and the kids is only made better by the sweetness of Nick’s father as he adopts everyone into his family.
