Release Tour, Giveaway & Review: Flawed Perfection by Cassandra Giovanni

Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player–he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.

River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She’s been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she’s stuck right in the middle of the brother’s dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn’t even know she’s the ultimate prize.

Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl’s hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself–or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all…

This is a story about two brothers and their love for the girl next door. River Ahlers has been the best friend of Bobby Beckerson and Adam Beckerson  since childhood. Bobby is in love with River, River is in love with Adam, and Adam loves himself. Can you say love triangle?!

“Listen Riv, the Beckerson boys share one common flaw – you.”
“You’re fighting over me?” I said in shock.

Like I’ve said before,  I have doubts about reading love triangle books because I have to know who she’ll choose! and I hate it when the heroine chooses the wrong guy! Let’s say I just don’t like the drama but, this one is the good type of love triangles.

Bobby is a hockey coach, the golden boy that never gets in trouble. The girl he loves is the  same girl who happens to love his little brother.

“He was hot; there was no denying that, but when he touched me I didn’t feel a spark. I only felt the tenderness of a friendship that began as children.” – River
“I don’t want him to never see the way you love him. I want you to myself” – Bobby
Adam is a womanizer musician who doesn’t seem to get any love or recognition from his parents. 
“You know it’s different with Adam.” – River

“Adam looked over his shoulder at me and winked, sending a tingle up my spine.” – River

“I really didn’t want a relationship if it wasn’t with Adam.” – River

And of course, River is the big prize. She loves Adam but, the loss of one of them would break her heart.

“He was good at making me feel like I was the only girl in the world. This was the reason I was trapped in a never ending cycle of meaningless relationships. I didn’t really want a relationship if it wasn’t with Adam…” – River

I knew something big was coming! BUT, I wasn’t expecting the surprise towards the end of the book!! Seriously.

Does Adam love River except he doesn’t admit it? Will River get her happy ever after with Adam? What about Bobby?

I don’t want to give away spoilers, so let me just say that this is an addictive story. It will frustrate you and make you sad, happy and angry at the same time. I got mad so many times, laughed so hard and cried at the end of this book. I was like, hurry up already!! The ending is definitely something I was not expectingHonestly though, this was a really good read. Cassandra really knows how to mess with you head!

Can’t wait to read  and the rest of the series!
