A Flaw so Beautiful
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Lincoln: Catching sight of my neighbor’s ass in the hallway the day I moved in more than piqued my interest. It's not just the body that has my attention. She's mysterious, hiding behind sunglasses that cover most of her face. I ask her name and try to get her to talk on the rare occasions I see her in the hallway, but every time she ignores me and turns away. I need to know more about this woman, I can't get her out of my head. Do I keep trying? Do I keep asking her name?
Ashton: I’m barely holding on. I’m always on the edge, even after all these years. I live every day the same and I can’t change who I am no matter how much I try. My new neighbor won't give up asking my name and trying to make conversation with me. If he knew me he wouldn't keep trying. I'm a lost cause.

Review by Becky Grover
This was my first read from this author. I really enjoyed it, though the pace was a lot slower than what I normally read. This book encompassed what it means to have unconditional love, patience, and encouragement. The hero was incredibly insightful and sweet. He was absolutely swoon-worthy. The only thing I would've liked to have read, that was missing for me, was lots more description and fine details in the connection between the two, their subtle touches or their first kiss, for example. With someone like this heroine, each minute detail would have been prominent and big deal. I couldn't wait for those moments and then didn't really get to experience them from her POV in the way I was hoping, which could've been quite amazing. I would recommend this to readers that like the slower burn, sweeter romances.

Review by Anne Milne
I wasn't sure what to expect before I read this book but I'm glad I picked it.
I really enjoyed the story and although parts of Ashton's past are horrific I would class this as dark and that's because although we find out what happened to her it's not gone into with much detail. Lincoln is a very sweet loving man just ignore his stalking at the start.
I would have liked more detail about their budding romance, because of her past I felt we could have done with more detail about their intimate relationship and how they both dealt with it.
Sometimes patience and the softly softly approach works. This is a story about never giving up and how learning to lean on others doesn't make you weak.

Review by Becky Rendon
A Flaw So Beautiful is a survivor story. It shows that even though it may take "forever" there is a light to be seen at the end of the tunnel. Healing isn't an instant fix. It's a process and it has ups, downs, and back steps. We all heal at our own pace.
I really appreciated Ashton's setbacks. The reality is it may never be ok but she was trying. I find it refreshing when stories are more realistic in their trauma timelines.
I read I the blurb that this might be considered a dark romance. It is NOT. It touches on a past trauma but is not a dark romance- in case you were leery of the term dark.

I sucked in a breath. “Are you trying to kill me?”
“A little dramatic don’t you think, Ashton.” She stood up and smoothed out her clothes.
Suzanne was tall, skinny, and blonde and sometimes she wore glasses. Other than that, I don’t pay attention to people or the unique details they all have. They all blend into categories, and I can’t see past that. They are short or tall, fat or skinny, and the only other thing I notice is usually their hair color. And I guess glasses. Sometimes those stick out to me.
My world is boring.
Dull and lifeless.
Sometimes the beating of my heart is the only thing that reminds me that I'm alive.
“I’m scared, Suzanne.”
I’m always so fucking scared.
“Anxiety can do that to you.”
