I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
“You’re worth the world to me, River, but am I worth it to you?”
Brothers Bobby and Adam Beckerson are complete opposites. Bobby is the star hockey player. His family adores him and sees him as just perfect. On the other hand, Adam is the musician that breaks girls hearts. His family isn’t fond of his life style. The one thing they have in common? They are completely in love with their best friend, River Ahlers. River doesn’t see herself as the ultimate prize. Her heart belongs to Adam. While Bobby wants nothing more than River to love him. Hearts are shattered, promises broken. When the ultimate tragedy strikes, nothing is ever the same.
“My heart stopped beating, and all I could hear was his breathing and mine, in perfect rhythm with each other.”
You are immediately drawn in the world of these best friends. Can you imagine being in love with your best friend and the only other person that stands in your way is your other best friend? Bobby wants River, but knows that she wants Adam. Adam cannot commit to any girl, because none of them are River. And River has no idea of the feelings Adam harbors for her. Crazy right? Sounds like an insane love triangle? Well you’re wrong. It’s SO much more than a triangle. The emotion in this story is raw. You feel the inner turmoil of every single character. It is unlike any other story I’ve ever read. How do you move on when the one person that has your heart wants to give theirs to someone else?
“You’re the first girl I fantasized about , the first girl that made every part of me feel like I was on fire...and every time I see you I still feel it.”
Love. Flawed Perfection will challenge your thoughts about love. You will be on the emotional roller coaster with River, Adam, and Bobby. This story is all bout their journey. Their journey about love, hope, and life. That real love cannot and does not disappear. Giving away which brother gets River would be a complete disservice to the reader. Just know that this story will touch your heart. It will remind you that love knows no boundaries. It goes where it belongs. Love never fails.
“That was it. I loved him desperately, completely, and he wasn’t threatening to complete me anymore. He already had.”
“I’m yours, River. I’m yours.”
The love in Flawed Perfection hurts. You will grip your kindle. You will FEEL their love. The intensity it. It’s passionate. Everything. You will feel. The writing of this story is effortless. The author is highly descriptive in that as a reader, I was completely captivated by it from beginning to end. I didn’t just read this story. I felt like I played a part. Like I was there. The characters are real and so true to their age. I love that there is no explicit love scenes as the author has so much depth in her writing. It just wasn’t needed. It was refreshing to read a new adult novel like that. The emotions of this story spoke for itself. I ached over this story. I laughed. I cried. I felt it all.
“Fix me, please. I want to be yours forever.
I am completely gutted over this story. I HAVE to know what is to happen next. While it ends on a cliffhanger in the sense that you have NO idea where the story is going to go, I still recommend you read this story. These are characters you will never forget. You WILL want to know what happens to them. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, a train wreck comes in a obliterates everything. And I mean everything. And I never saw it coming. If you are looking for a new adult contemporary story that is deep, intense, and passionate, I suggest you pick this one up.
Cassandra doesn't remember a time when she wasn't writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character's stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England their dogs, Bubski and Kanga.
