one request I ask that before you start reading this book you have a look at my shelves, that s my one and only warning If you re a fan of Francette s work like I am Then you ll know that when you start one her books, you should expect a few things.1 Angstlike angst fest 2 Drama Family drama to be exact 3 Tortured main characters and I mean torture yo 4 You re going to have to find that zen place inside of you and try to stay there throughout the book.Now that I ve got that out of the way, I should mention that this book is probably the darkest that Francette has ever written So maybe you ll understand why I was a bit thrown when I started it I ve read darker but this book was pretty dark, and Knox was pretty cold in the beginningEvery time you fight me, I want to rip into youI want to reach inside you and tear you apart 4 FLAWED STARSYou have this one fundamental flaw, Lacey And that is your foolish need to control everything around you, when really, you are the one meant to be controlled, all you need is the proper hand to steer youI think one of the best things about these reads is that I can never expect how dark it can be, which makes it highly exciting for me

is your foolish need to control everything around you, when really, you are the one meant to be controlled, all you need is the proper hand to steer youI think one of the best things about these reads is that I can never expect how dark it can be, which makes it highly exciting for me before I dive in It s easy to say that it s a dark read but there s just so many angles that this sub genre could cover, whether it d be pain inflicting, torture inducing or some form of psychological abuse I ve never read this author s work before but oh boy, this one definitely covered ALL of the above gulps It literally made my heart pitter patter as the author displays depravity in its truest and coldest form that had me hugging my kitty plushie as I read this Flawed begins with 18 year old Lacey, an ambitious girl who has her eyes set on medical school but coming from a troubled family with an addict of a mum and an elder brother who gambles his money away, Lacey has only ever known one thing Survival It s really hard not to sympathize with Lacey s character and there is not an ounce of selfish bone in that girl as she puts everyone s needs above hers The author s writing was fantastic in a way that lets you connect with Lacey and lets you feel the fear and trepidation in a young girl who has to sell herself just to make ends meetI know I am the one constant in this never ending cycle of fuckery I don t know who I killed in my past life, but it seems I m paying for it in this oneAnd then there s Knox, the anti hero that you d hate to love I must say that I was enamoured from his character from the get go The author allowed us to tap into his disturbing, twisted mind and even with that, you d be left conflicted on how you should feel about him I definitely do not condone his actions at all it made me squirm, it made me wanna hack him into pieces but at the same time, I was still drawn to him like a moth to a flame To put it mildly, I love AND hate Knox at the same time he was definitely an enigma that you d want to learnaboutAnd my past assumptions that she is just like me, flawed, empty inside, reaching blindly in the darkness for something, anything to grab and annihilate just to feel aliveThere were several scenes that even myself as an avid dark reader found it almost difficult to read, my heart and mind were tortured as I gripped the edges on my Kindle tightly while reading them These are very complex characters you ll meet and there is simply no sugar coating on whatever happens in this book Like I said earlier, depravity at its finest.Have you ever looked at something so beautiful, so utterly alluring that you just wanted to destroy it That s what you are to me You are this beautiful thing I want to destroyOverall, Flawed certainly brings out the dark in a dark read It s alluring, it s twisted and it s certainly not for the faint hearted It deals with some aspects that few readers might not be comfortable with view spoiler human trafficking, non consensual, graphic violence hide spoiler and only showing a tiny glimmer of romance Although it ends with a nail biting cliffhanger, I m very excited and eager to see where the author will bring the story and its flawed characters in the next instalment Flawed is the first part in a 2 part series and the sequel is due in 2015.ARC provided by the author in exchange for an

4.5 I start to hum StarsCliffhanger Yes HEA view spoiler n a hide spoiler To say I enjoyed this read is an understatement Francette Phal emotionally took me further than I was willing to go without being prepared I read the blurb and although it read dark, I wasn t prepared for how dark the story would go I loved it and I don t know how to feel about that I am not weak I have never been weak I fight Despite the odds, I always fight.Lacey is an 18 year old girl who lives a desperate life, she s a survivor and does what she needs to with the little she has With a mother and brother in name only, her misplaced need to protect them results in her being placed in cold, uncaring clutches of Knox.Lacey is one my favourite characters by far She is loyal to those who don t deserve it, sacrificing herself when she should be protected She s a fighter when most would be broken I felt her trepidation, her fear, her horror and gave her my tears I also felt her inner turmoil, her confusion, her want.I know I m built differently, everything in me has been arranged backwards My thought patterns are abnormal Emotions blunted I never understood why people feel the need to make connections.Knox is quite possibly insane, I felt true conflict when it came to my feelings towards him He is not kind, he is not patient, he feels nothing and disturbingly I wantedI didn t enjoy the things he did but I did enjoy being inside his head, ironically I found it calmer than the chaos he brought The small glimpse we get of his past gives me hope that he s not lost and his action at the end have me surprisingly championing him.There isn t much that takes place behind closed doors, as readers we are exposed to it all As much as it was hard to take at times, I rejoice in the commitment the author displayed in her characters It was a dark read and she made no allowances I m excited and nervous to see where the story goes from here, I know it won t be easy on frazzled nerves but I can t wait all the same.ARC kindly Provided in exchange for an honest review Thank You FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON You will always have a choice with me, Lacey, but you must be prepared for the

at times even sexy in a strange way and it doesn t have any romance at least this installment It s justDARKI know I am the one constant in this never ending cycle of fuckery I don t know who I killed in my past life, but it seems I m paying for it in this oneLacey is an 18 years old girl who was forced to grow up too fast To provide for her drug addict mother and for her loser brother Mr Let s Find a Get Rich Quick Scheme , she prostitutes herself Despite the fact her family is a broken one, Lacey has dreams and goals She dreams to go to college and eventually to medical school Her life changes when she meets KnoxI m not what you would call normal The word has no meaning to me But I ve been pretending to act normalKnox is dark He s a sociopath He s an assassin with serial killer tendencies who has no conscience He actually enjoys killing people The moment she meets Lacey, he becomes fascinated with her She intrigues him like no other He wants to have her, to test her limits, to capture her, to torture her Lacey knows Knox is a dangerous man However, she s drawn to him If at first she thought she figured out who Knox is, soon she will find out he s not like her usual johns Her body seems to have a mind on its own It responds to her captor and she can t do anything about it She doesn t know how his mind works, one minute he makes her want him and the next he makes her hate himI can smell how badly you want to be controlled And rest assured, Lacey, there will only ever be one man who pulls your leash MeKatia is Knox s adoptive sister She is manipulative, cold and almost the female version of Knox She has a human trafficking organization and she cares only for two things to havepower and to have Knox for herself Things get complicated when Katia finds out about Lacey and wants to get rid of her.The story is told from three poinst of view Lacey, Knox and Katia which I found very interesting Each of them is captivating in their own way Lacey is a great heroine She s strong, she wants to have a future, to become someone She doesn t want to be like her mother and brother My heart really broke from her She is smart and she also has a big heart She wants to help her family, even if they don t care too much for her Lacey just wants someone to care for her, to value her and maybe even love her I really admired her tenacity and I also admired her strength when it comes to her relationship with Knox She s determined to fight and not let Know destroy her spirit She is a survivor and a fighter It was a great to be in Knox s head I really enjoyed his POV At times, like Lacey I felt a little confused by him There s no doubt he s an intriguing man I must admit I mfascinating by him, than the other characters I really hope he will redeem himself in the future.Lacey and Knox s relationship practically doesn t progress at all In the end, Knox remains the captor and Lacey the captive I can only hope in some way, everything will change in the future for them Anyway, there s a strong connection between them and you can really feel it The sex scenes are not always consensual and they are intense and violent.The cliffy in the end Gahhh I want the next book so bad NOW All in all,Flawedwas a captivating dark read with fascinating characters and great writing and I can t wait for the next installmentEverything I do now is for her, to protect her She is the only one that sustains me The only person in this world I cannot do without She is the one person I will not share.She is mine DNF 55%Well, here we are again with another dark romance You know, the kind where the hero is twisted beyond redemption and then sees that one special gal who simultaneously brings out his darkest urges and desires like no other woman before Ahh, bliss To no one s surprise, this book did not impress me I shouldn t have read this well,than half but that gorgeous watercolor cover sucked me in.The similarities to Dexter are astounding Like Dexter, Knox is an emotionless killer Like DNF 55%Well, here we are again with another dark romance You know, the kind where the hero is twisted beyond redemption and then sees that one special gal who simultaneously brings out his darkest urges and desires like no other woman before Ahh, bliss To no one s surprise, this book did not impress me I shouldn t have read this well,than half but that gorgeous watercolor cover sucked me in.The similarities to Dexter are astounding Like Dexter, Knox is an emotionless killer Like Dexter, Knox kills in rooms covered in plastic Like Dexter, Knox has a sister he cares for Like Dexter, Knox has childhood memories only of blood and a lullaby.But unlike Dexter, Knox suddenly sees a young girl and decides to put his penis in her.To me, the urge of a psychopath to kill and the urge to have sex are best kept separate, at least for a while Both are so strong they almost can t exist at the same time Part of the reason Dexter was so awesome was because of his urge to NOT have sex I realize he wanted to after a while, but he didn t just jump right on the sex bandwagon.As if that weren t bad enough, Lacey is one of those female characters who decides she LIKES what the sadistic hero does to her against her will I stopped reading after their first of twenty five sessions together, where he has her trussed up in such a way that she can t even move He spanks her multiple times with a wooden paddle or something, then anally rapes her Then she s happy that he s pleased with her What kind of person did that make her, she wonders PLEASE, NOT AGAIN Let s not sugarcoat abuse as pleasure I don t care how bad you want your hero to be, but can we not have him physically harm the heroine Can we not have him rape her Or drug her Yes, he can extort her I m perfectly okay with that.As if all that wasn t bad enough, the grammar in this book leaves much to be desired Misused words ran rampant remakes for remarks, conscious for conscience , the dialogue tags were inexcusable, and the tenses switched constantly It s Santa Claus, not Santa Clause, and Grim Reaper, not Grim Creeper.I will never know how this ends, and I will never read the sequel There is literally no way the author can redeem Knox for me or make him exciting to read about HE IS NO DEXTER I don t even know where to begin with this one Talk about sick and twisted I don t think there was a single character in this book, aside from Lacey and maaaaybe Tyler, that was not completely irredeemable That being said, I love dark, depraved stories with an Alpha that you love to hate So, this disturbing story was right up my alley Lacey is a survivor At eighteen, she s had to grow up quick and is the sole source of support for her junkie mother and deadbeat brother To keep a roof over I don t even know where to begin with this one Talk about sick and twisted I don t think there was a single character in this book, aside from Lacey and maaaaybe Tyler, that was not completely irredeemable That being said, I love dark, depraved stories with an Alpha that you love to hate So, this disturbing story was right up my alley Lacey is a survivor At eighteen, she s had to grow up quick and is the sole source of support for her junkie mother and deadbeat brother To keep a roof over their heads, she sells the only thing she hasherself When her loser brother digs himself into a hole he can t get out of, she comes to his rescue yet again, making a deal with the devil to save his pathetic life.Knox is, in many ways, the epitome of evil He is the type of monster that stars only in your worst nightmares He s a sadistic killer that gets off on the suffering of his targets Until Lacey enters his world, he doesn t have an ounce of empathy and seems to be lacking any trace of humanity He s scaryREALLY scary Katia has been Knox s kindred spirit since her mob boss father brought him home one day when they were young children Her cruelty and penchant for brutality is masked by her public facade of a doting daughter and humanitarian This woman is despicable Behind her carefully crafted image is a woman that perpetrates the vilest of crimes without concern or remorse As Lacey turns Knox s world upside down, he begins to feel things that he s never felt Lacey is drawn to Knox, despite being smartly terrified of him When Katia takes note of the change in Knox, whom she d always thought of as hers, she sets a plan in motion to end whatever is going on between Knox and this high school aged prostitute The story ends in a cliffhanger that will drive you to near insanity There is bound to be a major shake up, but we ll have to wait until the next book to see where this story takes us I am in need of the next book desperately In case you haven t figured this out already, this story will not sit well with many readers It is violent, gritty and seriously disturbing There are multiple graphic scenes, including non consensual sexual acts dubious consent, bondage, sadism, etc It is dark and not for the faint hearted If you like dark stories that make you cringe, then this may be the book for you Have you ever looked at something so beautiful, so utterly alluring that you just wanted to destroy it That s what you are to me You are this beautiful thing I want to destroyimage error This story is written with the povs of Lacey, Knox and Latia all

the trouble or the price tag School is terrible since the students know about her prostitution endeavors but Lacey does have one friend, Tyler This time her brother, Dante has gotten himself in deep financial trouble with some really dangerous people Que in Knox Bishop, an assassin with serial killer tendencies who attacks Dante for the money he owes the Russian organization Lacey steps in to protect her brother and gets mixed up with Knox Knox is taken with Lacey and she is given a deal of twenty five sessions with Knox in his vault for the 25,000 her brother owes Latia is Knox s adoptive sister and the daughter of Yuri the head of this Russian crime family She is a bit of a two face, kind and giving to the public while trafficking young girls for a profit with aspirations of taking over her father s organization upon his death Latia is also obsessed with Knox and so the story progressesIt amuses me to manipulate your emotions, to see how much I can give you before I rip it all away again You have this one fundamental flaw, Lacey And that is your foolish need to control everything around you, when really, you are the one meant to be controlled all you need is the proper hand to steer you This inherent need you have for pain goes beautifully with my need to cause itLatia interferes with Knox and Lacey s arrangement and thus the story takes a terrible turnPlease don t let them take me I belong to you Everything I do now is for her, to protect her She is the only one that sustains me The only person in this world I cannot do without She is the one person I will not share She is mineOverall this was a well written story that was twisted with just the right about of hope for a romantic ending someday Please be warned this is a cliffhanger ending and I don t even
