Tragically Flawed by A.M. Hargrove
This is a New Adult contemporary romance novel (Rated NC-17)
(Five Fiery Hearts)
Book Summary
* This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance with Mature content that is not suitable for younger readers.

Riviera Benson’s past has been nothing but horrific. It’s filled with secrets that she intends to keep tightly locked away...terrifying secrets that keep her awake at night...that prevent her from getting close to anyone...anyone that is, until her work as a muralist drives her into the arms of the hot and sexy Shan.

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 Review
Sometimes our circumstances can lead us in an endless loop of hurt and pain. It takes courage and a leap of fate to embark on a new path and start a new adventure.
This is life and we’ve all had journey, some big, some small. It’s always interesting to me how any one person handles a given situation. Most likely it’s a hundred times different than if the person next to you was dealt the same hand.
This story is Riviera’s journey. She’s isn’t perfect and makes mistakes. But that’s the best part of reading a journey. An adventure is not one if it’s smooth sailing all the way.
The flaws that binds us to our fates may be the ties that draw these two people together in finding that piece of their hearts that always been missing. Tragic it maybe if they don’t see past, old hurts and move onto the future.
Beautifully told in a novel you won’t want to put down, pick this one up and fall into the pages of budding romance.

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 ├╝ber 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.
