All Your Perfects is a contemporary romance novel that explores the impact of infertility and infidelity on a marriage. The novel alternates between the past and the present, showing how Quinn and Graham met, fell in love, and faced the challenges of their relationship. The novel is emotional and realistic, portraying the struggles and joys of love after the “happily ever after”.
The novel is written in the first-person perspective of Quinn, who narrates both the “then” and “now” chapters. The “then” chapters depict how Quinn and Graham bonded over their shared love of books and words, how they overcame their previous betrayals by their ex-partners, and how they got married. The “now” chapters depict how Quinn and Graham have grown apart after years of trying to conceive a child, failing IVF treatments, and being rejected by adoption agencies. Quinn feels inadequate and guilty for not being able to give Graham a child, while Graham feels frustrated and lonely for not being able to reach Quinn emotionally. Their marriage reaches a breaking point when Graham confesses that he kissed another woman, and Quinn suffers a miscarriage of an ectopic pregnancy.
The novel is not only a romance, but also a story about finding oneself, following one’s dreams, and overcoming one’s fears. Quinn and Graham both face challenges in their personal and professional lives, such as family expectations, career choices, cultural differences, and past traumas. They also learn to communicate, compromise, forgive, and heal. The novel is touching and hopeful, but also humorous and witty. It has some steamy scenes, but they are balanced by sweet moments and meaningful conversations.
All Your Perfects is a captivating and moving novel that will make you feel for Quinn and Graham. It is a story about pretending to be perfect, only to realize that perfection is not what matters. It is a story about the power of love and imperfection.
