What I liked: The characters had great internal dialogue, made me really get inside of their heads. I loved the settings of the book and I could tell that the author has travelled extensively by her descriptions of some of the locations. The first few chapters repeat from both character's POV's. At first I was a little confused, but it really helped me to get to know the character and Emily did a great job at making each character have their own voice. And the other: There were a few times when I thought that the two main characters were just having a basic misunderstanding and if one of them would just start talking it could have been handled pretty directly. I was never frustrated but sometimes I wanted to tell them to just stop being that way and then I realized that was their character (insecure and questioning), so I think the writer got the response she was writing for.
Overall, a good full-length novel and I'll be interested in what the author does with the story lines she left open.
4-4.5 sexy stars!
Flawed and Damaged is delightfully delicious, witty, and hot with a bit of angst. This book is a breath of fresh air...an easy read that flows well. Life is not planned. Sometimes the best mistakes turn out to be the miracles you need. For Elizabeth Williams, the mistake comes in the form of a hot pompous jerk of an alpha male in a business suit at an airport in Moscow named Ryan Price.
Elizabeth met Ryan at the airport by mistake in Moscow when she thought he was the employee her boss wanted to escort to a meeting. Ryan thought she was an escort his brother set up for him to loosen him up and show him a good time.
"For some unknown reason the intense peering-into-my-very-soul gaze of this stranger paralyzes me and makes my heart thump madly. What surprises me is that I feel some current running between us. Does he feel it too?"
Beautiful blonde and brainy Elizabeth, still haunted by a devastating past, has thrown ladies-man Ryan quite the curveball. Used to women throwing themselves at his feet and one-night stands, he can't walk away from the sweet and amber-eyed long-legged beauty who sets his heart and body on fire and has taken his mind hostage.
"The more I spend time with Elizabeth, the more another desire awakes in me. Once I've never felt before--a desire to save her. To save her from something. I am not sure from what yet. The problem is that I'm not that kind of guy; I'm not a savior. I used to see women as an object of my satisfaction. The only things I care about are myself, my business, and my brother. This young woman is so much more than just good looks. She is intriguing, smart and straightforward. I like her. And I don't like that I like her.."
What started out as a mistake, develops into much more. Elizabeth and Ryan can't seem to stay away from each other...they are like captivating crack to each other...thoroughly addicted...they need each other more than they want to admit.
"There is something about him, something magnetic, something I can't figure out, and something I can't deny.
Though haunting and less-than-stellar pasts, other relationships, and more have a way of constantly challenging this couple and testing them to the brink of survival.
Good debut novel by Emily Krat! I can't wait to see how Elizabeth and Ryan's story ends!
When Ryan arrives in Moscow on business he thinks Elizabeth is "an assistant" sent by his brother. When he sees her he has an attraction towards her.
This story is told from Ryan and Elizabeth's POV and it helps you to get to know each of them individually. They both have secrets and lies from their pasts that they are not proud of. Elizabeth can't move past the grief of losing her parents. Ryan feels that he is not good enough and incapable of love due to things in his past. Can they come together and prove that each other is worthy of love?
This story moved at a slow pace but it worked. Ryan and Elizabeth needed that time to tell the story of their past. They worked to get past the demons and learn to live and love. There is just the right amount of angst, sadness, happiness and love to make the story flow. I also loved that the book was set in Moscow but covered Paris and other countries.
This book did not end in a cliffhanger but there is another story to come. Can't wait to see more of Ryan and Elizabeth and their family and friends.
