  2. 4.5 STARS I ll always love you and make you happy,If you only say the same.But if you leave me to love another,You ll regret it all someday To say Flawed was an emotional read would be an understatement I m not gonna lie I was exhausted when I finished this one It was intense, heart breaking and depressing Flawed is a story about life,family, love, loyalty, loss and so much It s the story of Sarah and James, two brothers who grew up in a messed up home Growing up with an alcoholic, abusive fath [...]

  3. Rating 2.5 StarsYou need to know straight off the bat that this is one of those reviews you should take with a grain of salt I read Flawed just after finishing Juliet Marillier s masterpiece, Daughter of the Forest, and you should know, that reading order did no wonders for this novel While both novels are vastly dissimilar, they both contain protagonists who have suffered through difficult situations and while Sorcha, the compelling heroine of Marillier s tale, managed to make me weep and feel [...]

  4. Why can t I be enough I want to be enough so fucking bad Gosh This was messed up James O Brien will forever be the character that I would have loved and shed real tears for IF I ever got the chance to get to know him What a waste.These people lives were so messed up and so so sad It focused on the troubles the abusive father and the abandonment in their lives and not on the forbidden romance aspect.To be honest, I believe this book would be a whole lot interesting if it was about that pairing [...]

  5. OH crap I want to read this bookbut ummm, after reading Forbidden and how it shattered my heart to the point of becoming inconsolable and not able to read another book for like a week, I am so scared to read this Though these crazy, twisted, sick stories are always the ones that jump out at me and I always take the bait, I am just not sure if I can stomach this one My heart is fragile as it is Ugh, maybe I ll give it a chance at some point.AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH [...]

  6. I cannot rate this book but will try my best to review itI finally decided to rate this after 2 days, I cannot get this out of my head so I guess that s a good signalWhy can t I rate the book I don t know, maybe I will be able to do it after a few days but most of the book I felt it was a 3 star book but then the end was a 5 star ending so it s better if I just don t rate it because my rating won t be fair.This is the story of James Sarah To be honest, I think this is their book, Sam was one cha [...]

  7. It seems young adult is tackling a lot taboo subjects such as incest We saw this with Tabitha Suzuma s Forbidden, which is an incestuous romance between a brother and sister, both in high school That book didn t work for me for various reasons When I heard about Flawed, and the possible incestuous implications that may occur about another brother and sister but this time the sister isn t interested at all , I would give it a shot Flawed was a big disappointment, so much so that it s the first [...]

  9. This was a story of devotion, loyalty, tragedy, love, guilt, beauty, and betrayal At times I loved it, other times I hated it I was angry, happy, disgusted, heartbroken and moved After reading it I really felt emotionally raw.After finishing this, I found myself thinking What did I just read It s been hours, and this book is still on my mind I m not sure how to rate or review this book Overall, I m still not exactly sure how I feel about it, but I feel.This book was not perfect, but when a story [...]

  10. Because of some of the comments that I ve seen about this novel, I want to start by saying that this isn t a story about incest That label feels misleading and many readers will be turned off when they re assuming that this features a romantic relationship between two siblings This is a really, really difficult review to write Maybe that s fitting because Flawed was a difficult story to read I think, by looking over the synopsis, the basics of the story are clear Sarah O Brien is the victim of a [...]

  11. SoAfter considering the following features you may procede with reading the book Overbearing abusive father ex fighter beating the shit out of his children and his wife.Possessive brother in love with his sister.Adorable and protective boy trying to save girl.Girl torn between avoiding her mental father, disappointing her brother and wanting to be free with boy And last but not least THE MOTHER OF ALL NON HEA.

  13. view spoiler She didn t die WTF The only reason I kept reading was because I read a spoiler that everyone diedd then I find out that Sarah, AKA the Devil doesn t even die Not only doesn t she die, but everyone else dies and super speshul Sarah gets an HEA WHERE IS THE JUSTICE Okay, this book and I did not get along At All First, the protagonist Super Speshul Sarah She s not pretty folks, not a bit Her eyes are too big for her head um Disney Princess anyone and she s got these horrible deformitie [...]

  14. Let me tell you something about how I read Sometimes, I loll through a book, savoring every detail Other times, I lollbut it s because I m bored stiff And on very RARE occasions, I turn into a raging lunatic who s prone to wild outbursts of irritation when anything and I do mean ANYTHING takes me away from the story in my hands Well, folks, Kate Avelynn s FLAWED had me lashing out like a banshee Allow me to elaborate Husband Want something to eat Me Snarls turns page Mother Are you driving down [...]

  15. What can I say really That Flawed shattered my heart That I love it despite this fact What else is new Okay, so for some of you who don t want to read this book because of the incest factor, please don t be turned off by this It s not really an incest novel It s not like Forbidden although I do think that fans of the novel would enjoy this because there was no real romance going on between the two of them I mean, it was kind of like a one sided thing Anyway, Flawed is about two siblings, Sarah a [...]

  16. I just finished this book an hour ago after reading it every spare moment I could over the past 24 hours , and I m not sure I ve fully processed my reaction, but I still feel like I need to release some of what Flawed has made me feel So here we goOne thing is for sure you cannot read Flawed and not have a strong emotional reaction For me, reading this book kept my stomach tangled in knots From the first chapter, you know things cannot possibly end well, but exactly what that ending will be you [...]

  17. 4.5 starsAfter finishing Flawed I felt like an empty shell, numb and raw Sometimes I enjoy books which leave you feeling crushed, like your heart has been taken and thoroughly stomped on It takes a lot for me to be left so affected by a book and only a few this year have been able to leave me feeling so overwrought with emotions.I d heard endless things about Flawed before picking it up, yes I was worried about its taboo subject, and it s dark and gritty vibe I even had Kate stop by on the blog [...]

  18. Beautiful and devastating all wrapped in one heart shattering, soul moving book Flawed broke me, crushed me whole and devoured my every being Kate Avelynn created a book so powerful, so gut wrenching nothing will ever be the same Sarah O Brien was the strongest protagonist I have ever encountered in all my time of reading She wasn t strong physically, but with years of abuse she had to go through, Sarah endured She was living a life she didn t deserve at all, stuck in an impossible situation wit [...]

I am a sucker Here I am rooting for the bad guy Was James the villain Not for me.James, James ,James, my beautiful boyI wish with all my heart that everything could have ended up as a fairy tale.However, there was no other way Was there Such a tormented soul with no help.I want to shake Sarah so many times to see if I could put some sense into her.She was doing worse than him leading him on a dead end situation.She knew he needed help.

  21. This book hurts my heart It hurts my soul Shattered me into a million pieces These words Like razor blades across my skin It s beautiful and intense and earth shattering Flawed takes love and twists it into something deadly.When you re put in an impossible choice, is there really a right answer I have been there Stuck between two heartbreaking decisions except there was no right choice They are both right and they are both wrong it always comes down to hurting yourself or the other person But wi [...]

  22. Flawed has to be one of the best books I ve read this year It was emotional, dark, intense book and full of love that it was overwhelming From the very beginning I was hooked and that first page then went to 80 pages it was addictive Flawed was one of the best debuts I ve read, and everyone who reads this book will fall in love with the chemistry between the characters and the intense plot Kate Avelynn is officially one of my favorite authors because now this book will be stuck in my mind I stil [...]

  23. I picked up Flawed because I d never heard it brought up without Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma being brought up after Forbidden is one of my all time favorite books, so I knew I had to pick it up I get why they are being constantly compared, but truth be told they have very little in common If I would have read Flawed first I would have liked it That being said I still really enjoyed it.The back story between Sarah and James is dark and Kate leaves no detail unsaid I loved how dark it got Her mom [...]

  26. This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea s Bookshelf.Amazing, Beautiful, Hart wrenching, Dark, Emotional, Powerful, Intense, Shattering, Overwhelming.These are just some of the emotions I experienced while reading this book But they don t give the book justice, because what I felt while reading this book can not be expressed in words From the very beginning, I was sucked into the story and couldn t put the book down When I finished it, I lay in my bed, unable to sleep and just thinking abou [...]

  27. Holy Jesus, Mary and Joseph I don t even know where to start This book DESTROYED me Like I m sitting here, crying in a seriously borderline hysterical manner and I can t seem to stop That said, just WOW I was right there with Sarah the entire time There was no distancing myself from the events of the book, no sitting back and wondering what I would have done I couldn t escape this story if I d tried Read this book It will devastate you, bring you up, down, and sideways, and at the end you ll wal [...]

  30. Oscuro, ti ghermisce e non ti lascia pi andare.Sapevo davvero a cosa andavo incontro, quando ho iniziato a leggere questo libro No Una risposta semplice, per un libro che mi ha abbattuto pagina dopo pagina, senza che me ne rendessi conto L ho capito solo alla fine.L ho capito quando ormai era troppo tardi Quel giorno, quando si piazz tra me e mio padre, un bambino di otto anni con i piccoli pugni rigidi lungo i fianchi, penso di essermi innamorata di mio fratello.Dopo la cocente delusione avuta [...]
