Detectives Zach Gibson and Logan Armstrong are partners, and working together isn’t always smooth and stress free, which makes their personal relationship difficult. So difficult they don’t even know what to call their off-duty connection…but at present, it works and neither is willing to make a change.

When Zach’s grandfather asks them to investigate the theft of a ring off the hand of a deceased friend’s hand, it opens up some painful memories for Logan that’s he’s tried to keep hidden for years. When the secrets come tumbling out, he’s forced to deal with the pain of the past that kept him from moving on with his life.

Imperfect is a fast paced and intriguing little novella that grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept it until the end. Both Zach and Logan are interesting men and the author did a nice job developing their unique personalities in its short length. Their relationship is as volatile as it is intense, and they spend time aggravated and yelling at each other or at other times, in a passionate embrace. There’s also deep pain hovering in the background of Logan’s life…a family tragedy and hurt feelings that the author deals with nicely. Overall, the story is a quick and entertaining read, even if the portion of the story dealing with the stolen ring is handled rather quickly.
