I never set out to be famous. It sort of fell into my lap.
Just like Finn.

He was exactly what I needed in an assistant, and the exact opposite of everything I looked for in a guy, which made hiring him an easy decision.

It was perfect.
Then it wasn’t.

One by one, I started to fall for all of Finn’s imperfections, leaving me to question...

Was I simply looking for all the wr

The imPerfect Guy
By: Leddy Harper

*REVIEW* 💋💋💋.5
The imPerfect Guy is a different sort of story. Girls, I think we all have insecurities and think we're fat and on and on. It's the typical nature of women, I suppose. This story flips the gender stereotype and places emphasis on a man's insecurities. I must admit, I find this perspective refreshing. I love a good spicy ro

I was kind of split when it came to this book at times so I want to start off by listing the things I really liked about it.

I liked the writing and overall plot of the story. I thought it had a really good premise and really good potential. It's what led me to reading the book other than the fact that it's an author I enjoy. The plot of the story was girl hires male assistant that she initially thought was nothing like the usual guys she's attracted to even though they did find each other attrac

It's a well known fact that I am a he fan of Leddy Harper. I have read just about all of her books and there is not one that I did not like. And the imPerfect Guy is no exception. As always she did not disappoint.

Mady is a social media influencer who is beautiful, sweet and has her own flaws and imperfections which is what also made her so lovable. She is looking for a new assistant. When she meets Finn, who based on his resume she thought was a woman, she feels thi

This is my first book by Leddy Harper and I really enjoyed it. The imPerfect guy is the story of Maddy, a social media influencer that is about to sign o a major deal to co-design a fashion collection. Maddy is in dire need of a new assistant to get her life in order so that she can focus on bigger and better projects. That’s when Finn steps in. When looking at résumés, Maddy thinks Finn is a woman, because of his last name, Kelly.

This is the first book by the author, and as the year starts to wrap up, I've been thinking about how many amazing authors I have had the pleasure of finding this year and Leddy Harper is one of them. I went into this blind and only reading the blurb. I was intrigued right away after the blurb so I was so happy to find that I loved this book...

This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone, which I am doing and having no problem understanding the story, although I loved this so much I

“I believe that someone can love me,” I argued.
“Oh, yeah?” She cocked her head to the side and leaned against the doorframe. “Then how come you couldn’t accept it from me?”

Mady is a sensation on Instagram. Her career is on the rise and her sister's help is not meeting the demand. With her workload growing, she needs an assistant. And that's why she's on her way to an interview with a potential candidate. But it can be said that she will have an unexpected surprise.

Leddy Harper's "The imPERFECT Guy" was funny and sweet, yet steamy at the same time. I liked both of the main characters, especially the female lead, Mady, and thought that they were well-developed. Despite being a brunette, Mady came across as the quintessential "dumb blonde" in Ms. Harper's previous book ("The UnEXpected Plan"), but she seemed so much smarter here. Her mannerisms were a lot more understandable once I learned more about her and her background. Aside from that, Mady was very swe ...more

*The im(Perfect) Guy can be read as a COMPLETE STANDALONE.*

We do however see glimpses of Mady (our leading lady) in The un(Expected) Plan.

I really enjoyed Mady and Finn's story because both the characters were just so different from anything I've ever read before. Their flaws and imperfections are pointed out from the get go but I loved them for it and it made them even more real and relatable in my eyes.

Mady Russo is a gorgeous social media influencer. She's also a little ditzy and clumsy

Mady is happy that her business has grown more rapidly than she anticipated however the only drawback is that she needs a personal assistant. When Finn applied for the job although he was not what she was expecting he seems like a perfect fit.

Finn runs his own business, but he is no arrogant sexy billionaire. The job sounded appealing and when he meets Mady he believes that just being around her would be a great benefit of the job even though he believes there is no way she would be interested i

I was not able to connect with this title. I was annoyed with the heroine, and her assumptions, at the beginning of the book and while this was resolved, it never stopped bothering me and I was not able to connect with the characters or engage with the story.

I love her titles. I really do. They have so much meaning behind it.
Leddy Harper knows what she's doing. Her latest books nailed and I knew that this new one would be off charts.
I started to read it late and I wanted to slap myself for it.
Leddy Harper has a writing full of sassiness, feelings, hotness and some major topics.
She can put you into tears, oh tough, big and ugly, and fat tears... Been there, and done that. But she can also make you laugh so freaking hard.

The imPerfect Guy by Leddy Harper was my first read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I thought the storyline was very real and relevant to today’s world, and the characters each had very endearing qualities about them both, especially once each layer was revealed and we saw Mady and Finn as they truly are.

The imPerfect Guy was such a sweet read for me, I had so much fun reading it. Mady and Finn were so damn likable, I enjoyed them both so much. Mady is an Instagram influencer who needs an assistant, enter Finn, definitely not what Mady was expected but was exactly what she needed.

Mady has a lot going for her but also has a lot of personal growth that she needs to go through to be ready for Finn and all he has to offer. She is strong and courageous, I love her big family and how protective they

I received a review copy before release for an honest review.

This is part of a series but I have not read any of the other books in the series. It easily stands alone and I did not fall for the other characters. So while I really adored this book for me it was a standalone and I have no plans to read the other ones in the series.

4.5 stars to the realest guy I know!

The imPERFECT Guy is absolutely adorably, awesome. Finn is real. He's your husband, your neighbor, the guy who peaks your interest at the coffee shop. He is not the latest cover model on GQ. He is not the photoshopped abs on display everywhere. He most definitely isn't the 'roided up gym rats that can't put their arms down and only stare at the mirror or reflective surfaces instead of looking you in the eyes.

Oh, how I adored these two! Together, Maddy and Finn are perfectly imperfect!

From the moment they meet — She mistakenly believed he’d be a she — to all of their quirks, insecurities and arguments, I was rooting hard for these two.

I liked that Finn is the assistant to Maddy, rather than the other way around. There’s a delicate balance between these two as he tries to help her build her brand, yet not overstep as her boyfriend or put her down as not being a strong enough businesswoman.

I loved Finn and Mady’s story. These two characters were both extremely relatable and felt so real and down to earth. Mady lives a life on social media, but the image people see isn’t the full picture of who she truly is as a person. Finn isn’t the typical hero, he is full of flaws and imperfections, but was sweet from the start. It is so easy to connect and relate to these characters.

The imperfections they both had is what made them truly perfect for each other. I loved their chemistry and how

Where can I find a Finn?

I have been a fan of Leddy Harper’s for quite some time now and The imPerfect Guy is a great addition to her creations.

Maddy is a paid Instagram promoter and is a dire need of an assistant due to her joining forces with a fashion designer. When Maddy comes across Finn’s application for the position she is convinced that he is actually a she and is in for a huge surprise. Finn is not your typical gu

The Imperfect Guy is the first book I have read by Leddy Harper. I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed her writing. She created an endearing romance in today’s fast paced modern world that is ruled by social media and digital influences. She showed how beneath the public images are real human beings with real insecurities and real emotions. I loved how she illustrated that men have body image insecurities as well.

The imPerfect Guy by Leddy Harper is a standalone contemporary romance told in dual POV between Mady and Finn. This is a sweet strangers to boss/employee to more trope with a bit of angst, a bit of real life, and a bit of fun thrown in the mix. Well-written and moderately paced, we get a front row row seat to Finn and Mady's meet cute, his somewhat alpha tendencies and her interesting career as a social media influencer.

The Imperfect Guy is a standalone boss to lover’s romance, with all the drama along the way.

Maddy is a social media influencer and her business is getting bigger and bigger; when she finds the perfect assistant on paper she is taken back when she meets face to face. Finn has been running his own successful business but needs a challenge, when he submitted his resume, he never expected to get a sit down or to be offered the job. When their attraction gets to boiling point, they cross the line fr

Great book- it is a solid 4.5 outta 5 from me, it is funny and so perfectly imperfect! Leddy Harper touched on some serious underlying issues in between the folds of this funny and sweet romance and I think she did a great job of. There were a few things that seemed a bit extreme to me (hence dropping it from 5 to 4.5) and I could not rationalize the characters behaving that way. But, it did not take a way from the story or the character development!

Leddy Harper is always a delight to read!

Anytime Leddy Harper has a new release, you make time in your schedule to read it. Not only are her stories fun and heart-warming, but the characters she creates are truly some of the best you'll ever read about. Mady and Finn were so typical and so easy to connect with, I felt as though I knew them both personally. As this office-type romance progressed, I fell hard for those two, wanting them both to see what was so obvious to the reader--that they shou

"Meeting the perfect guy seemed impossible. Little did I know. I was just waiting for the imperfect guy to come along."

The imPerfect Guy is a refreshing read filled with great humor and chemistry. Both Mady and Finn have their own insecurities that jeopardize their future and make them risk missing out on a perfectly imperfect match, but with a few tears and challenges - like every good rom-com - there's always the promise of a happy ending.
