Editorial Reviews

Review

Flawless is an astute, intelligent, gripping romance for the modern woman. Jan Moran expertly transports the reader to Beverly Hills and, for a period, Paris, and offers a glimpse of glamour while showing those who work hard behind the scenes to create that glamour. The compelling plot had me turning the pages faster and faster. The characters reach out of the pages and pull you into their lives, and they stay with you long after you close the book. I love that Jan's writing took me to the edge; that she creates a heroine whom you can't fail to care for and understand. A fabulous first book in the series; I can't wait to read the next one. --Hannah Fielding, Author of The Echoes of Love

Jan Moran knows her stuff. Her knowledge of fashion, and food and the cosmetic industry, shine throughout the story. Flawless is a classic romantic tale with a modern business twist. It's a pleasure to read; the story kept me turning the pages. A five-star rating! --Anne Riley, Author of Aerie

If you're a Jackie Collins or Danielle Steel fan, you'll love Jan Moran's Flawless. --Debbie White, Author of Salty Dog

I'm trying not to be judgmental when it comes to selecting books to read, because sometimes the books I've read on a whim end up being the best reads! However, this is so not the case with this one.

I've been branching out and exploring the romance, contemporary or chick lit genres and we've been pleasantly surprised and absolutely horrified/disgusted. And, I was completely horrified/enraged/disgusted with Flawless. Honestly, I can't believe the majority of the ratings both on Goodreads and Amazon have been 4 or 5 stars.

Verena Valent is our flimsy heroine. Why flimsy? Well, on one hand she is running her family's beauty company (and for the most part rocking it), taking care of her sickly grandmother and her younger twin sisters all on her own. Wow. That's a lot going on. However, on the other hand, she is completely weak when it comes to her boyfriend. Who, by the way, is only dating her to give her poor business advice, forcing her company into the ground and seeking a loan/partnership with (you guessed it) her boyfriend's entrepreneurial firm.

What's more, the entire time, he is cheating on her with his actual girlfriend (or is he cheating on his actual girlfriend with his fake girlfriend, Vernea?). AND AND AND! He legitimately rapes Verena. Yes, RAPES her! She even tells him it's rape and he does nothing to stop. Nor does she go to the police to report his scummy self. This is just setting a bad example and perpetuating the "she's asking for it" epidemic.

I wanted to pronounce this book a DNF from the first page, but for some reason I was fueled by pure rage and read the whole thing. Let me tell you, it did not get any better.

Don't waste your time or emotional health on this one. Sorry, I know this sounds heartless and mean, but it's honestly how I felt while reading.

When I review books, I look for four things: first, a good story; second, good character development; third good description,; and fourth, good grammar.

Overall, I gave Flawless a five-start rating. Here’s why:

Flawless is a classic romantic story with a modern twist. It has all the elements that make up a romantic tale. A smart, beautiful heroine in Verena Valent. A handsome self-possessed hero who can cook. That’s right, Lance Martel is a chef. Isn’t this every woman’s dream? Add a conflict that rocks Verena’s world to the core, and you have a new twist on an old favorite.

Verena has committed to expanding her flourishing skin care business just as the Great Recession hits. Her fiancé, Derrick Logan, an up and coming partner with Herringbone Capital, a venture capital company, says he can help, but his promises seem to come with strings that make Verena nervous. As the economy worsens, Herringbone tightens the screws. With each turn, the company slips further away from Verena’s control.

It’s clear Jan Moran knows her stuff. Her knowledge of fashion, and food and the cosmetics industry, shine throughout the story. She describes the business challenges facing Verena accurately. I am an accountant and MBA, and her account of the impact of tight credit on businesses during this era ring true. Though she doesn’t overwhelm the reader with technical jargon, she does communicate well the underhanded business tactics that Verena faces as she seeks to save her company.

There’s an old saying in the writing game: “Show, Don’t tell.” And it means that the writer should show through the characters’ words and actions what is happening in the story. Ms.

Whenever I choose to read a romantic story, I want to make sure that it’s well-written and character-driven. That’s why I’m so glad I came across “Flawless” by Jan Moran.
First of all, the book has a very engaging plot with a lot of twists that makes it almost impossible to put the book down. Second, the main character Verena is so lovable, that you can’t help but root for her when she faces the chance of losing her family business thanks to her no good boyfriend Derrick, who was trying to take it over by all means. I loved that Verena is such a strong character, she easily juggles her company, taking care of her family and her social life; it’s the kind of a woman you would look up to in real life. So it was really nice that she finally found her prince Charming in the end and everything worked out for her.
Highly recommended!

Very quick read. I was able to complete in a couple hours but I am a rather fast reader. a nice quick romance that I wouldn't be embarrassed to be reading in front of more conservative family (unlike other "colorful" books)

I recommend this book for a nice quick weekend/roadtrip read.
