Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.

River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.

Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.

Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...

This book is about more than a love triangle between Bobby the golden boy, Adam the troubled brother and River the girl both boys love. This is told from River POV. For River its always been Adam. Hell for me reading this it was always Adam. Ladies, if a guy brings you fireflies tell me he wouldn’t have your heart. Talk about SWOON….

Rather than just a romance, Flawed Perfection is a family drama as Adam and Bobby not only fight over River like a toy, but also who is the favourite son? We find out some of these answer and a WHOLE lot more. I knew going in to reading this that my heart would be broken, but NEVER in my wildest dreams did I see THAT COMING!!! I’ve become attached to this series from the first rock on the window.

Flawed Perfection is full of angst, but the author balances this with beautiful romance, and although I am not sure I am ready for the emotion of Beautifully Flawed #2, I am convinced that Cassandra Giovanni’s writing will cause me to relent  yet again.

So go one-click, and be sure to have the time to finish as you won’t want to put it down until the last page is turned. NOTE*Wine and Kleenex may or may not be needed!!

“I thought Bobby broke up with Jackie?” I asked, watching as Adam’s face turned red.

“Well, they are totes back together. Jackie and I work together,” Monica explained.

Her lingo was ridiculous, and I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing at her.

She narrowed her eyes at me and cocked her head.

“You know what? Jackie kind of looks a lot like you…except she’s blonde,” Monica said.

I watched as Adam blinked his eyes in shock.

“Doesn’t she?” Monica asked him.

“Yeah,” Adam began, rubbing his scruff; “a bit.”

“Any who—can’t wait to meet your Andy.”

“I don’t own him.” I couldn’t bite my tongue.

She shrugged at me. “Ready to go, Boo?”

Adam swallowed and his eyes were hard and vacant.  He did not like being called that.

“Sure,” he still answered to it, though.
