Yesterday I helped spread the word about the release of An Imperfect Heart by Amie Knight. Today I am back to share my review of this amazing book. I already read and reviewed the first two books: See Throught Heart and A Steel Heart. Amie Knight hasn’t written anything that I haven’t liked so far. For my full review, keep on reading!
An Imperfect Heart, an all-new second chance romance from Amie Knight, is available NOW!
The heart is exquisite.
You’ll never hear anyone wax poetic over an organ quite like they do the heart.
When you’re lost in the world? Follow your heart.
When your love for someone is unwavering, unparalleled and unprecedented? You give them your heart.
As a lead pediatric cardiac surgeon, I knew better than anyone that the heart is equally as powerful as it is delicate.
The heart giveth just as easily as it taketh away.
And until the day Kelly Potter darkened my doorway that was all just part of the job.
She rolled in like a slow evening storm, fierce and beautiful, fighting for the life of her unborn child.
It should have been business as usual.
I was a doctor.
Her child the patient.
But Kelly was more.
She was the one who got away.
I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.
It didn’t matter what the rules were.
For once, I was listening to my heart.

“Jesus. You’re fucking gorgeous, you know that?” He ran a large hand from the spot right in the middle of my shoulder blades past the small of my back before landing on my ass where he squeezed hard enough to make me giggle.
“Less talking, more petting, Doctor,” I said through laughter.
“Not a doctor. Yet.” His voice was cocky, and it made me hot. “Still a ways to go before that happens.”
I could hear the smile in his voice even though I couldn’t see his face. I was lying on my stomach on top of his white plush down comforter naked as the day I was born. And not shy about it at all. He’d just laid his mouth, his tongue, his hands over every inch of this body several times and he’d seemed to enjoy every second of it.
I looked out the small window next to his bed while he was propped up on one hand beside me and using the other to rub every available surface of skin on my body he could find. It was phenomenal. I wanted to purr like a damn cat, but instead I stretched out further along his bed.
“I can’t believe you came home with me tonight,” he husked out.
I couldn’t believe it either. I wasn’t the type of girl who did one-night stands. I didn’t really have boyfriends, either. I was married to the music. Anthony Jackson wasn’t even really my type per se. I liked moody guys with tattoos and piercings. Boys with darker eyes and even darker souls. I was a walking cliché, but I liked the tortured musician types. After all, we were kindred spirits. Me and my hard, banging drums, them with their soft guitar riffs and raspy lyrical voices.
I rolled to my back and gazed up at Anthony. He waggled an eyebrow at me, and I bit my lip to hide my smile. He may not have been my type, but I was positive there wasn’t a girl out there who’d turn him down. Vivid and inquisitive green eyes stared down at me and God, I wanted him all over again.
And I’d had him plenty that night. We’d met at the club only hours ago. I was visiting my friend Ainsley in Columbia, South Carolina, and we’d run into Anthony and his college friends at a nightclub. Ainsley introduced him as an old friend. He’d come on strong. I’d come on even stronger. Hardly any alcohol in my system and yet I’d let him drag me back to his small apartment, between my legs aching with want. We’d barely made it through the door when he picked me up and placed me on the entry table and pushed his massive body between my thighs. Slick skin, hot hands, wet mouths. And the rest was history. Or maybe not.
No, Anthony Jackson wasn’t my type. He was everygirl’s type.
Chiseled to perfection face.
Wide smile complete with full pink lips and deep dimples.
Square jaw that somehow managed to be both soft and hard.
Blond hair that was so thick and shiny I wanted to ask him what shampoo he used.
Not a tattoo or piercing marred the bronzed skin of his muscular body.
For fuck’s sake, even the man’s cock was pure perfection. Thick and long and cut just as beautifully as the rest of him.
He was surprised I’d come home with him. I couldn’t believe it, either. I realized in that moment, him over me. Me under him. The sweat still glistening on our bodies. His ruggedly handsome good looks beaming down at me like the sun on a bright day. For the first time in my life, I’d had a man. An actual real man. Not boys playing men. No, Anthony was all fucking masculine beauty and he’d picked me at the bar. I was one lucky girl.
Plot Amie Knight did it again. She made me love her characters and want them to just love. I loved that we got a little glimpse of Miranda and Ainsley. Kelly didn’t ever plan on being a mom, she wanted to become famous in her band and tour the world. Things turned out different than planned when she found out she was pregnant. Unfortunately, her daughter has a heart problem and will need help from the start if she wants a chance to survive. The last thing she expected was that the doctor that could save her daughters life, would be the guy she had a one night stand with ten years ago. Anthony was a jerk after that night, while she actually thought something could’ve happened. I love that every once in awhile we get a chapter ten years ago. The night Kelly and Anthony spent together was mentioned in the other books, but what happened that night wasn’t something I had read about yet. I think out of all three books this one is my favorite and made me feel the most. I was Team Hope all the way. Even though Kelly never planned on being a mother, she was so strong and wanted to do everything right for her daughter. Even when she was really scared. Anthony actually really felt something for Kelly, but it scared him. Seeing Kelly again, makes him think of that night. Only will the feeling that start to come to the surface interfere with him being able to help her daughter. Once again, we get the flirting and romantic moments, but also some humor. And even some emotional ones. I can’t imagine what it must feel like knowing that your baby has something wrong that you can’t fix. Even though this is a romance and Amie writes amazing male characters that go on the bookboyfriend list, her stories have a realistic feel to them. Every book has brought me to tears. I hope we get many more books from this author.
Characters Kelly is such a strong woman and she doesn’t even realize it. As said above, having a child was never part of her plan. Not until she had her time on stage, touring and found someone to settle down with. She is a passionate person and once she finds out she’s pregnant, that is her everything. When the baby is diagnosed with a heart disorder, things gets scary. Kelly is determined to find the best for her baby. She never expects the best person for her baby to be the person she had one night with ten years ago. A guy who hurt her. How can she trust him with her baby? Even though Kelly has some issues, she does what’s best. She doesn’t like losing control, but Anthony seems to get to her. It was amazing to see Kelly let go for the best of her baby and maybe even let herself hope. Kelly never expected a happily ever after.
Anthony’s world changed ten years ago and that’s why he turned so cold after his night with Kelly. This is something we don’t learn until near the end of this book. I was happy about that. Not knowing this bit of information until that moment made it possible to get to know Anthony for who he was. Anthony is a hardworking doctor who does whatever he can for his patients. He fights for them. When they lose someone, it hits him hard. Anthony is a sweet guy. I love how he tried to do everything possible for Kelly and even annoyed her with it, haha. Without even realizing it, he started caring for her more than he expected. Who knows? Maybe he never stopped caring at all.
Lucille, Anthony’s mother, is so sweet. It was funny when she got to know Kelly before Kelly knew who she was. I loved how close they were and how she helped them every step of the way.
Ainsley and Miranda are still amazing characters and it was fun to see them again. They were there when their friend needed them and wouldn’t have it any other way.
