What can be said about Josh Brewster? Nothing good, that's for sure. Just ask anyone. They'll be quick to tell you. Josh is a selfish, sweet-talking manipulator who will charm you in a minute, all the while planning his next move. He uses. He leaves. All Josh desires is things that come easy. Why actually work hard for something when you don't have to?

When Josh comes to face to face with a girl who’s doesn’t make anything easy, Josh begins questioning the game he's played so long. He’s suddenly eager to learn how to work for something he never imagined wanting. Can a player really change his ways? Better yet, will his past forgive? 

Aidan Turner has had a rough life, a life that has only become harsher as he's gotten older. The scars across his face serve as a constant reminder of the haunting nightmares from his past life. Seeing himself as nothing but a monster, Aidan believes no one will ever be able to look past his flaws. 

His reasoning is about to change when his very own beauty comes barreling in, sparking emotions he'd thought he'd never feel. Love sizzles between them, but his friendship with another girl complicates everything, especially after the nature of their friendship becomes confused. Will friendship overshadow his true feelings and ruin both couples’ chances at happiness?

My Review:

Flaw (Flaw, #1)My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Flaw by Ryan Ringbloom is the first book in the Flaw series.

These characters will have you on the edge of your seat just waiting to see what they could possibly do next. They are infuriating and they are charming, but most of all they are endearing. It's not something you get with characters in mosts books, only some authors can truly make you feel right along with their characters. This author manages that in spades.

What I thought was going to be a love triangle from the synopsis turned out to be so much different from what I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised, despite wanting to kick Josh in the jewels on more than one occasion. The insight into the male mind is always an interesting one (yes, I know I'm talking about fictional men here) but it makes a much more rounded story than only one point of view.

I'm excited to get more Ryan Ringbloom books on my e-reader and to see what is next in this series.

  1. :) FLAW is amazing! I completely agree! And JOSH, oh you want to hate him so much, but deep down inside, you just can't, because underneath his dark layer, is a softy that just wants to cuddle with chocolate chips and Dancing with the stars! Aw! Book boyfriend for sure! :)
