Benjamin Shandon, owner of Shandon Homes, works like a thousand demons are chasing him...because perhaps they are. His business has boomed, ever since the forest fire swept through the canyon and destroyed hundreds of million dollar homes. He demands excellence in everything...from his employees to his women. He slows down for nothing, keeping a schedule that no sane person would want. But Riviera interrupts everything, twisting his guts inside out, and wedging her way into his heart, destroying a promise he made to himself.
Will they let their pasts control their future, or will they decide to let go and allow their hearts to discover each other’s?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Beautiful, Heartbreaking, Sexy, Steamy are just a few of the words I will use to describe Tragically Flawed written by A.M. Hargrove. A.M’s writing is phenomenal, the story, plot and characters are so well written that you instantly feel connected and cannot stop reading this story.
We are first introduced to Riviera and what you experience here is heartbreak and maybe some tears will be shed. Riviera is in a horrible situation and leaving an abusive relationship is never easy. But she does get away and has plans to start over and have the life she deserves. Riviera is courageous, strong and a survivor, but her past has made her weary and trust does not come easy for her. Things are looking up for her though when she secures herself a new great job.
Here we meet Shan, now this character is hot, sexy, single, sensitive and a bit intimidating. I just loved him. His protective nature, sensitive side all wrapped up in this beautiful man. The chemistry between these two jump right off the pages. And the romance is superb.
Tragically Flawed is a must read! I have to say it is one of the best book I’ve read that A.M Hargrove has written to date. Don’t get me wrong though all her other books are fantastic but I truly think this is the most exciting, steamy and just over all one of the best stories I’ve read recently. From what I have seen of A.M. Hargrove’s writing it appears each books she writes just gets better and better. I am really looking forward to her next book whatever that may be.
Tragically Flawed is one of my 10 ten favorites of the year.
So if your reading my review I suggest you grab yourself a copy of Tragically Flawed, also take a look at A.M. Hargrove's other published books you will not be disappointed.
A.M. Hargrove's Bio:
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).
So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include the following: Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge and Kissing Fire (The Edge Series); The Guardians of Vesturon series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent and Beginnings); Dark Waltz and Tragically Flawed.
Other than being in love with writing about being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
