Flawed Perfection Blog Tour: Review

Flawed Perfection (Beautifully Flawed #1)
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...



Author Bio:
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. In 2012 she became a published Young Adult author, releasing In Between Seasons (The Fall, #1) and the Amazon bestselling thriller, Walking in the Shadows. In 2013 she branched out by using her artistic illustrating talents to publish her first Children's novel, The Adventures of Skippy Von Flippy: Tales of Friendship (Skippy Tales, #1). Cassandra released her first New Adult novel, Love Exactly, which became an Amazon Bestseller overnight in June of 2013. She's currently working on her new New Adult Contemporary Romance, Beautifully Flawed. The first novel in the series, Flawed Perfection is scheduled to be published on March 7, 2014.

Flawed Perfection is about River, who is in love with Adam. Adam and his brother Bobby are both in love with River. I immediately fell in love with Adam. He was so sweet, even though he is a player. He has the rebellious good boy thing going on (yes, that is a contradiction, but when you read the book, you'll understand).

Bobby on the other hand is a jerk and a whiney butthead. All he does is complain that River is in love with Adam and not with him. And when River and Adam eventually get together, he does everything in his power to tear them apart, including ostracizing them from their families. When he starts dating Tara, River's best friend, he drags her into the mix.

The end of the book was awesome. I love how River never tries to make a decision for Adam by breaking up with him, as happens in a lot of YA and NA books. I also love how when their families basically disown them, they try to make amends, at least with Bobby and Tara. And the very end :( Just when things were looking up and I was anticipating a happy ending. I definately need to get my hands on Pieces of Perfection as soon as possible. I don't know how I'll survive until then.

You should read Flawed Perfection if you like sweet romances and twist endings. It's definately worth the time.
