Sarah O’Brien is alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago — James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, she’s watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, she’ll give it freely.
Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.
Sam Donavon has been James’ best friend — and the boy Sarah’s had a crush on — for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows she’s in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided he’s going to save her. Neither of them realizes James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that he’s not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact . . .
I hurt after reading this story. I am sitting in my bed, laptop set up and I am just replaying the entire book in my head. Nothing could have prepared me for what took place between each page and in my heart and mind. I have never thought of a book so wonderful in its own sense but yet so devastating. Let me make this clear; this is a great read but it is a very rough and emotional read. As the reader, you need to be prepared before you dive into the plot.
Flawed is filled with hatred, violence, abuse, love (conventional and unconventional), friendship, struggle, new beginnings and shattering endings. It made me feel lucky in the sense that I have not had to deal with the life that the character Sarah has had to deal with. Just reading about this life put me on edge for every turn of the page. You know that as a perfect moment is happening in this book, an imperfect moment is right around the corner and it is going to be a doozy when it is unleashed.
This book is dark, it makes you think, it makes you long for a string of happiness that you can reach in and give Sarah and James to make things better if only for a day. Be ready because this book will send you into an emotional whirlwind.
