I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I met him in college, and I fell in love.
It was a beautiful love, pure and perfect.
Max quickly became everything I could have ever wanted.
He was the jock, the popular guy, and I was just Belle.
But he made me so much more.
He gave me everything I could have ever wanted in life.
But one night, one accident. It changed everything.
The man I loved. The man I thought I knew...disappeared.
I can't tell you the exact moment he fell out of love with me. But he did.
I wish I could tell you there was hope.
That I hung on. That I fought.
I wish I could tell you that we fixed it.
That happily ever after was just out of our grips.
It wasnÔÇÖt. I ran. In the dead of the night, I packed my things and I left him.
Five years later, I have returned.
HeÔÇÖs still the same man I left behind.
A deadly underground fighter for the House of Obsidian.
HeÔÇÖs still dangerous. HeÔÇÖs still broken. I still love him.
We're both holding a secret, and that secret might just change everything.
Maybe I was wrong.
Maybe I should have never left.
Did I give up too easily?
This is the part where IÔÇÖm supposed to turn back around and runÔÇªbut I donÔÇÖt. I can't.
I don’t know how Bella Jewel does it. I really have no idea. But, just as her previous books, “Flawed Heart” is amazing.
It’s full of angst, heart-break and misunderstandings. It’s filled with hurt, disappointment, but also with forgiveness and love. “Flawed Heart” by Bella Jewel is a beautiful second chance romance with unusual characters and an original plot that will keep you glued to your Kindle.
Max and Belle used to be happy and deeply in love. Things were going really great until one night that changed everything. One accident that changed the man Belle was in love with. So she left him, taking a secret with her.
Five years later they meet again and all the bottled up feelings erupt like a volcano that’s been dormant for way too long. Max isn’t the man she fell in love with, but he’s still the man she loves. Belle is the woman that stole Max heart and then broke it without knowing. And once he finds out what she’s been hiding, his heart may tear to pieces.
Belle was an amazing female lead. I loved her strength and her ferocity. Even in her weakest moment, she still managed to be strong. She was hard-working, loving and caring. Bella Jewel’s writing allowed me to feel Belle’s heart-break, her insecurity and fear to be hurt again, but also her immense longing and yearning for Max and his love.
Max on the other hand was sexy, unyielding and so beautifully broken. He was a tough guy, but at the same time he could be the most loving, sweet and caring man towards Belle and the people she loves. When he opened up and shared his hurt with Belle, I couldn’t stop crying. It was so easy to relate to him – his good and his bad side.
Besides the great characters, the amazing plot and the hot sizzling sex, I really enjoyed the way that Bella Jewel chose to write this story. She showed that there isn’t just black and white, wrong and right. There are usually two sides to a story and there’s always two people in a relationship. Two people who have a part in making things work or making them fall apart. She has shown how it’s not just one person’s fault. Both, Max and Belle had a part in the unraveling of their relationship. It wasn’t just his or her fault.
Just as it was both of them having to let go, to forgive and to take the next step into a future together. Their journey was moving and beautiful.
I love how Bella Jewel described the fears, insecurities and hurt they were going through. And how she showed that true love is worth fighting for. It is worth giving it another try.
4 no-one-is-perfect stars.
