In Present Perfect, Brad Johnson was sexy, cocky, rich and a complete Smurff**ker. He could afford anything he wanted and could charm any girl he set his eyes on. Everything was laid out in front of him, all for the taking except the one thing he craved and needed. A tragic event forces him to reevaluate his life. When he tries to change, will the people in his life let him move on from his past or will they constantly hold him to the life altering mistakes he’s made?

Mabry Darnell is intelligent, ambitious, beautiful, and sassy. Secrets from her past haunt the present causing her to question her actions in order to shield her heart and protect her life.

From the moment Brad and Mabry met, their connection was strong, intense, and electrifying. Both knew they had found the one person who could satisfy what the other ached for. When their pasts collide with their present, will it prevent them from having a future together or will love be strong enough to conquer their demons?

Alison was born and raised in Charleston, SC. As a child she would create (write) additional scenes to TV shows and movies that she watched. She attended Winthrop University and graduated with a major in Theater. While at school she began writing one act plays which she later produced. Throughout the years she continued writing and producing several one act plays, but then life got in the way and she hung up her pen for a while. At the end of 2012 a very talented author friend convinced Alison to go back to writing and see what happens. So she did and fell back in love with it. Present Perfect will be Alison's first self-published book. A few personal facts, Alison loves anything sweet, especially frosting, and is addicted to Diet Pepsi. Alison's philosophy: Don't let your obstacles define you. At times life can get pretty overwhelming, but with a great support system and a lot of humor you can get through them. If you have humor in your life your spirit stays strong and you can tackle anything.

If you haven’t read Present Perfect, the first book of this series, I highly recommend you read it immediately. I loved that book but absolutely adore this book. Noah and Amanda have their own special place in my heart but Brad and Mabry took the rest of it with this book.

Brad is a cocky smurff***er but he is very confident. I mean you have to have confidence to be cocky right? At least he backed it up. In Present Perfect he was a complete ass. He showed his true colors in the book but seriously I still couldn’t help but to like him. He shows so much growth and maturity in this book I fell head over heels in love with him.

Mabry was a good girl with her shoulders completely bogged down with guilt and feelings of rejection. She had a hard road to follow. Her life was far from being perfect. Her relationship with Brad was one of a kind as well. She has a sorted past with me just like his with women. Those two together was tough but damn it was so hot too.

I am going to tell you that some of this book was hard to read. It wasn’t because of the writing by any means, but the abuse that was involved is something that happens every day to some people. You get an insight into seeing how far it can go. I am not saying this to scare you but to inform you. I think this is a big thing happening today and needs to be brought to everyone’s attention.
So in saying all of this I am giving it 5 hearts because Brand and Mabry stole mine.
