Review: Flawed Perfection




Flawed Perfection by Cassandra Giovanni

'Flawed Perfection' is the first novel in the New Adult 'Beautifully Flawed' series. While this book is labeled 'New Adult' I think it's suitable for readers of high school age - no crazy sex scenes, just some more mature subject matter. 
Flawed Perfection follows a girl named River who's grown up around the Beckerson brothers for as long as she can remember. While one has always been the guy she knew in her heart, she wanted to marry - and the other, has been the best friend she could ever ask for. Sounds great right? Well, I think it's what every girl hopes for. A guy she can love, and a guy she can LOVE, you know? Unfortunately, life is never that easy (and if it is I am incredibly jealous of you). River has to learn to not only express herself, and be brave enough to share her feelings, but she has to do it twice. She has to express her feelings out loud to not one, but two people who are constants in her life. Needless to say, that doesn't always end well. 
I think this is a beautiful book and really pulls you in from the very beginning. 'Flawed Perfection' shows us that in every flaw, there is perfection - for everyone. No two people are the same, and perfection is about preference. The book touches on tough subjects like unrequited love and family not always being what it's supposed to be. But, it also shows that family isn't always the people who share your blood - sometimes it's the people that don't share blood that mean the most to you. 
I hope you'll take the time to pick up this book and give it a read, I think you'll be pretty happy you did...but please let me know who you prefer: Adam, the sexy teacher/bad boy musician, or Bobby, the studly, charismatic, hockey player? I'm going with the bad boy. You know I can't ever deny them when they have tattoos and say all the right things! 

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...

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.
