5+ stars for Perfect Little Flaws by @JenniferAShore #yaromance #yalit #romance #bookreview

Title: Perfect Little Flaws

Author: Jennifer Ann Shore

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Book Blurb:

It’s impossible to ignore Vince Novak.

He’s all anyone can talk about—speculating on the reason for his transfer to our school, celebrating his future career as a soccer star, or gushing over how tall, dark, and handsome he is.

Even my parents mention him in hushed, angry whispers, fearful he’s going to shatter my brother’s records and destroy the legacy left behind when he died.

However, I avoid Vince Novak at all costs, hiding from him and the rest of the world behind my camera lens. But my best laid plans—and photos—are nearly ruined when my tangible disinterest in his existence intrigues him.

The more time we spend together, the more his little flaws peek out beneath the layers of perfection and break down the walls I’ve built around my heart.

My Review:

A girl living in the shadows of her brother’s death finds a fresh start behind the camera lens and love with a guy she yearns to hate. Maren Montgomery’s happy life ended when her brother died. She rediscovers life by taking photographs. All anyone at school can talk about is Vince Novak. He’s a soccer superstar in the making and she loathes him. But he doesn’t seem to get the message. The more she’s around him, the clearer she sees him and his perfect little flaw. As Vince breaks through the walls around her heart, Maren makes the big decision to stop living in the past and steps off the sidelines. Can she bare her flaws to the world, especially those she loves, and go after her passion?

Perfect Little Flaws is, without a doubt, the best book written by Jennifer Ann Shore. The emotional narration hooks the reader from the first page. Maren is suffering from the loss of her brother and doesn’t quite know how to deal. We delve deep into her thoughts which are poignant, heartfelt, and sometimes painful to read. The love of the sport soccer is the main theme throughout this story. Jennifer Ann Shore is a huge soccer fan and her enthusiasm for this sport comes across as the reader reads Perfect Little Flaws. The romance between Maren and Vince is angsty yet I couldn’t stop reading. Maren would have you believe she and Vince are opposites yet by the end of the book, you will think differently. The plot moves at a solid pace with plenty of characters to interact with. For those readers who read The Stillness Before the Start, there’s a crossover character that was such fun to read. I simply adore this YA romance and I think you will too. Another triumph for Jennifer Ann Shore. Highly recommend!
