“Compelling, imaginative, and unique. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!” — Mary Lindsey, author of Haven
Perfection comes at a price.
As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these "family companions" enter their masters' homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury.
Ella is happy with her new role as playmate for a congressman's bubbly young daughter, but she doesn't expect Penn, the congressman's handsome and rebellious son. He's the only person who sees beyond the perfect exterior to the girl within. Falling for him goes against every rule she knows…and the freedom she finds with him is intoxicating.
But when Ella is kidnapped and thrust into the dark underworld lurking beneath her pampered life, she's faced with an unthinkable choice. Because the only thing more dangerous than staying with Penn's family is leaving…and if she's unsuccessful, she'll face a fate far worse than death.
For fans of Keira Cass's Selection series and Lauren DeStefano's Chemical Garden series, Perfected by Kate Jarvik Birch is a chilling look at what it means to be human, and a stunning celebration of the power of love to set us free, wrapped in a glamorous—and dangerous—bow.
The Perfected series is best enjoyed in order.
Book #1 Perfected
Book #2 Tarnished
Book #3 Unraveled
bought this book when it was on sale and now i cant wait to finish the series
Good Sci-fi but forced romance
Perfected is an interesting book, but I have to say it didn’t live up to my expectations. The idea was intriguing but the execution just wasn’t there. The love story was forced and rushed, but the rest of the book was decent. Perfected is a good read for sci-fi, but not romance.
Edge of My Seat
This book was SO good. Don’t be turned away because it’s free. It pulled me in and kept me captivated until the last page, leaving me craving more. And thankfully, there is more! I’m happy to support the author by paying for the sequel.
