Flawed by Sara Hubbard | Blog Tour with Review

Book: Flawed
Author: Sara Hubbard
Flawed is a dual POV, standalone novel. 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

When I fell in love with Ivy Carter, I fell hard. She had a grip on my heart, and she refused to let go. After I committed a brutal assault, I pushed her away so she could have a life without me, but I’ve ached for her ever since. I assumed in a few months she’d move on, go off to school, and find some guy that actually deserves her. But that’s not what she did. She pushed back. And the more she pushed, the more I wanted to give in. I didn’t, though. I can be a mean SOB when I want to be.

It’s six years later now, and I’m out. I just want to see her so I know she’s okay, but one look at her angelic face through the window of where she works and I’m seventeen again, ready to do what it takes to put a smile on her face. I want to go straight and be the man she deserves, but when her brother steals from my criminal uncle, I have no choice but to make a deal with him. I might as well sell my soul; the devil is kinder.


Flawed is a second chance romance that has all the feels. Flawed is the story of Niko and Ivy, for the past 6 years Niko has been locked up and upon getting released he goes looking for the only woman he ever loved. Ivy has dealt with a lot since Niko went away. Currently her brother is in trouble with Niko’s uncle, so Ivy’s only option is to go for Niko for help. But both of them are still harboring feelings for each other, even after 6 years. 

This book is pretty HOT! I love a good second chance romance. I also enjoyed the crime aspect of this book. I’m always up for a romance with an element of crime and this book did not disappoint. I think that Hubbard did well with the writing in this book, I enjoyed both main characters and the storyline as well. I think that there were different layers to this romance, which sometimes is hard to do. I don’t enjoy romances that fall flat and don’t have any depth, this was not the case for Flawed. You had not only the relationship between Niko and Ivy, you get the story between Ivy and her brother, and Niko and his family as well. The only downfall for this book for me was that it was kind of an insta love situation. I understand that they were in love before Niko went away, and that their feelings didn’t disappear, however I think I would have liked a little bit more build up before they fell into bed together. With that being said I still enjoyed the story and I would recommend reading it if you like a crime romance. 
Overall rating: 4/5 stars

“It’s been too long,” he says, his voice heavy.
Oh God. My brain turns back on, just for a moment. I should say no. I should shout out the words and tell him he can’t have me after breaking my heart, but this is just too good to refuse. So why deny myself? I think about a million reasons why this can’t happen again, but I’m too wild with need to tell him to stop.
He lowers me to the fur rug by the fireplace. When I’m lying down by the fire, the logs crackling and the light a soft orange, I stare up at him. I’m near tears. I missed him so much. Not just this, but his face, his dark but soft eyes, and the way he looks at me like I’m the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.
He reaches down and lays his rough hand against my face and I turn and kiss his palm. My stomach is alive with butterflies. They’re better than I remember them. People in movies talk about this feeling and I used to feel like it was bullshit, but here I am, enjoying the sensation so delicious and sweet I can’t help but grin.
