(The Flawed Heart Series#1)

Please feel free to comment or share

Finding London is an opposites attract romance that is filled with heartfelt moments and emotion.  It grabbed my interest from the beginning and kept me entertained until the final page. 

London is a young woman from a rich and privileged background who is used to getting what she wants.  When she meets Loic, a handsome military man, her ego gets a bit bruised by his brush-off.  She’s not accustomed to being the one who gets rejected.  Loic is affected by her, but he chooses to keep himself closed off from potential heartbreak – his own and hers.

Loic Berkeley has experienced more than his share of pain and loss.  To him, love equates loss.  If he doesn’t put himself in the position of caring or loving someone, he isn’t vulnerable to the possibility of losing them.  While he would like nothing more than to maintain this lifestyle, he can’t deny that he feels drawn to London on a deeper level.  She makes him want something more.

Ellie Wade gives her readers a glimpse into Loic’s past, providing an understanding as to why he is the way he is.  My heart broke for the young boy who had once felt what it was like to love and be loved.  If I could’ve reached into my Kindle and given that boy a big hug, I would’ve.  Life wasn’t always kind or easy for Loic, leaving him with the insecurities and trust issues that would plague him into adulthood.

Finding London had all of the chemistry, tension, and back and forth between the characters that I enjoy when reading a romance novel.  While it was an emotional story, and often heartbreaking, it also had plenty of lighter moments.  I would be remiss not to mention London’s best friend, Paige.  Every scene that she was in had me laughing out loud and shaking my head.  Her inappropriate use of sayings gave this book the comedic element that I looked forward to.

I am looking forward to reading the second book in the series, and finding out what’s in store for London and Loic’s relationship.
