Flawed Heart by Bella Jewel, was a raw and emotionally charged read. Max was an appealing and rugged alpha, but he was also pained, damaged and complex. Belle was a beauty, honourable and very appealing, but she was a wounded and desperate woman. Without giving away too much of the storyline, Belle and Max's relationship was in a very bad place and they needed to move through all the pain, misunderstandings and resentment to a place of trust and love...it's an HEA, afterall. My only criticism: I just didn't completely get the pivotal moment that caused such a huge impact on Max's life. It resulted in a massive character change, but the importance of the circumstance wasn't explained well, imo. For such a life altering scene, it needed more 'punch' and development. However, overall, the narrative was full of lots of beauty, angst and agony for those who enjoy this genre.
What a great book! My heart broke for Max and Belle but I was able to push through because I knew Bella would leave me with a HEA and I wasn't disappointed. I am really looking forward to Rainer and Raide's books.
