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?

Let me start by saying that Alison Bailey has done it again! I absolutely LOVED Present Perfect and while I didn't care for Brad that much then, I love him so much more now!

Brad Johnson was the hot, sexy, cocky, can-have-any-girl-he-wants-and-doesn't-care-about-her kind of guy. After a tragic event, Brad realizes he's better than that and attempts to change his womanizing ways. He meets the beautiful, smart Mabry Darnell who happens to be broken, sad and alone. She also hurts herself in order to feel...something.

In Past Imperfect, we get Brad and Mabry's story alternating from past and present day.  Both Brad and Mabry have each had terrible childhood issues and enough hurt and suffering to deal with but when their past and present come together they realize that they have each other to hold onto.

I completely felt the heartbreak and hurt that these two characters went through but am so happy with the way it ended. Brad has completely redeemed himself in my eyes and is no longer a Smurff***er!

About the author
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.
