Flaw is the first in the Flaw series by Ryan Ringbloom but can be read as a standalone. 

This is the second novel I’ve read by Ryan. I wrote a review for Fake Boobs back in March and it can be found here

I felt much the same way about Flaw as I did about Fake Boobs. I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it. I was very much indifferent about it. 

Flaw essentially has four main characters. Aidan who has a facial disfigurement, Josh who still hasn’t grown up and lives off his parents money, Becca who is Aidan’s next door neighbor and best friend, and Jordyn who is a kinda-friend to Becca and becomes friends with the group. They all push the boundaries of their relationships as they all try to live their lives and move on from their pasts and the things that haunt them. 

Overall I thought it was a cute story but my biggest issue with it was the pacing felt very slow. I kept wanting to skip pages just to get to a part where something would happen. 

What can be said about Josh Brewster? Nothing good, that's for sure. Just ask anyone. They'll be quick to tell you. Josh is a selfish, sweet-talking manipulator who will charm you in a minute, all the while planning his next move. He uses. He leaves. All Josh desires is things that come easy. Why actually work hard for something when you don't have to?

When Josh comes to face to face with a girl who’s doesn’t make anything easy, Josh begins questioning the game he's played so long. He’s suddenly eager to learn how to work for something he never imagined wanting. Can a player really change his ways? Better yet, will his past forgive?

Aidan Turner has had a rough life, a life that has only become harsher as he's gotten older. The scars across his face serve as a constant reminder of the haunting nightmares from his past life. Seeing himself as nothing but a monster, Aidan believes no one will ever be able to look past his flaws.

His reasoning is about to change when his very own beauty comes barreling in, sparking emotions he'd thought he'd never feel. Love sizzles between them, but his friendship with another girl complicates everything, especially after the nature of their friendship becomes confused. Will friendship overshadow his true feelings and ruin both couples’ chances at happiness?
