Perfected (Perfected, #1) Read Online Free - 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 Kiera Cass’ Selection series and Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden series, Perfected 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.

This book is fucking terrible. "Arf, arf. Woof wood arf. RUFF. Yip. Arf! Yelp." *lusty moan* Ok, fine. That's not act0ually a quote from the book, but I'm just translating it into dog. Why? The main character is a dog. No. Really. Bear with me. Yes, it is Friday night. Yes, I'm drunk as fuck, an...

This was an enjoyable YA Sci-Fi/dystopian story, and I’m looking forward to book 2.
Poor Ella was treated like a dog at times in this book, and I could see why people were so against the whole ‘pet’ thing, because it was like one person owning another. I thought it really bad that the pets hadn’t...

I thought the concept was really interesting, definitely unique in the way it was written, and I liked this book enough, but it was much too simple, and I don't think it portrayed an extreme enough case for the premise. I was just disappointed that it didn't elicit more extreme emotions from me.

Perfected was my FAVORITE read of 2014. That's right, 20-frigging-14! And I loved it so much that I hadn't felt ready to compose a review for it up until this point (which is really stupid considering how often I find myself talking about it, even over a year later). Have you ever enjoyed somethi...

The legislative and ethical exploration of cloning is what intrigued me the most about Perfected. That, and the fact it is not post apocalyptic or post regime change. It takes place with our current system of government intact. No plagues, wars, or coups change the rules. Our own process allows i...

[Full disclosure: I received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.]
This is another book where I honestly don’t know where to start because there are so many things wrong with it. I’ll try my best, though.
Okay, so the premise of Perfected is that genetically perfect huma...

Oh boy. I'm so sorry I really don't mean to be cruel but...how can you just write a book about nothing ? Because this story was a whole lot of nothing piled onto layers upon layers of nothingness. I started off thinking the writing was pretty and the concept wasn't half-bad. But then I soon reali...

This was a short cute read but the story as a whole was not planned out well at all! And this goes specifically for the characters. We barely got to know them! She would mention one character and then never go back to them or add in someone but never explained the consequences...
