Book Review: Picture Perfect by Alessandra Thomas

Picture Perfect by: +Alessandra Thomas 

Coming Soon!

Genre: New Adult

Book Description:
Fashion design major Cat Mitchell has a closet full of gorgeous clothes - and not a single thing fits. After two years of runway modeling for easy cash, an accident shattered her lower leg bone and her self-esteem in just one swift fall. Ten months of no exercise, prescription steroids, comfort eating and yoga pants meant returning to campus as a size twelve instead of her former size two. When her gorgeous long-time friend with benefits sees her for the first time after her accident and snubs her in front of all her friends, Cat’s self-image hits rock bottom. Her sorority sisters all insist that she looks gorgeous, but all Cat sees is the roll of her stomach when she sits down, or the dimpling at the back of her thighs that wasn't there last year. Cat’s therapist prescribes something radical to stop the downward spiral - nude modeling for a nearby college's human form drawing classes. When Cat faces her fears and bares it all for the class, she realizes that she's posing naked in front the most gorgeous, buffest guy she's ever seen in her life. He asks her out after the class, and after one steamy night together, Cat's absolutely smitten.Nate’s pretty close to perfect – he takes Cat rock climbing when he discovers that it makes her feel strong and becomes a great chef after he learns that the perfect pesto sauce makes her swoon. Cat starts to feel like her old self again - confident and beautiful - as long as Nate's around. Even when he discourages her from entering the Real Woman Project, a design competition for plus-sized apparel, she reasons that he's just trying to prevent old body image wounds from splitting wide open again.But when Cat goes home with Nate for Thanksgiving, she discovers something shocking from his recent past that proves that he hasn’t always been so encouraging of women of all shapes and sizes. Cat has no idea what to think, but she does know one thing - this might destroy their relationship before it's even had a chance to get off the ground. Before Cat can figure out whether the real Nate is the sensitive, adoring guy she fell in love with, or an undercover asshole, she'll have to finally feel comfortable in her own skin - even if it means leaving him forever.
This book was so inspiring! I was lucky enough to get a chance to read this book already and all I can think is wow, amazing! Taking you through the thoughts of Cat trying to learn to love her body again. The whole book is a roller coaster of emotions. It takes you through the highs and lows of college life and dating and friendship. Speaking of friendship, I must say that Cat's best friend Joey in this book is so awesome!! She is totally the type of friend everyone wants! She is funny and truthful but not to the point of being mean and she is so feisty!
Cat and Nates relationship is absolutely amazing! He is so good to her, so loving and caring. He just wants to help her feel better about herself and he does help her when she is with him. 
Also, may I just say that this book is so sexy! I mean totally hot! 
Possible Spoilers:
This book was amazing all the way throughout! BUT, the absolute best was the last half of the book! When Cat finds something out about Nate that totally shatters her world, she just up and leaves him. And when Nate tries to call to get answers, Joey totally goes kick butt and stands up for her best friend! I was a little worried at first because I was afraid that Cat would totally shatter, but she only got stronger! It was awesome! But I was totally torn up about Nate and wanted him to get a chance to explain. When he does, let me just say this boy totally does it in the most perfect way and actually helps Cat! 

5 out of 5 stars!
