Two people haunted by their past…
The collision of two damaged hearts…
Meet Elizabeth Williams. She is at the airport on an important work assignment. If everything goes smoothly, after three years of hard work, she’ll get a promotion and a much-needed raise. Elizabeth is putting her life back on track after it was ripped out from under her feet four years ago when she lost her parents along with all her dreams. Standing here, she believes her life is going to change for the better any moment now. Nothing can go wrong, right?
Meet Ryan Price. He came to Moscow on business. Right now, Ryan is standing at the airport looking at a ‘present’ from his brother, judging by the sign a beautiful young woman is holding. Damn his brother for not cancelling this arrangement as Ryan asked.
Miscommunications and misunderstandings and a brilliant but painful love story begins.
There will be a scary flight, lovely breakfasts, long evening conversations, sharing a secret or two, discovering one another, a lot of laughter, tender moments and some tears, a fight and, of course, the I-am-ready-for-the-end-of-the-world kiss.
Somewhere along the way, they won’t be able to fight their feelings any longer.
For the first time in his life, Ryan will experience a different shade of lust. And for the first time in her life, Elizabeth will have to trust despite all of the times she has been hurt.
Will these two wounded lost souls find love, peace and comfort in each other or will they just break each other more? Is it a train wreck of a love story or a happily ever after?
My 4 Star Review:
Elizabeth Williams finally has her life back on track, four years later and lots of hard work, she is up for a promotion and a much needed raise. Taking care of her grandmother hasn't been easy nor has it been cheap.
Working as an assistant she is determined to show her boss that she is ready. Her assignment is to pick up a client from the airport and take him to the meeting. Easy right?
Ryan Price is handsome, smart and very rich and determined to get back at his father and yeah, he is a bit jaded when it comes to woman and their motives. He knows all too well the lengths they will go through, the lies they will tell, just to get to his bank account and their pictures in the paper.
While on a business trip he runs into Elizabeth *insertchaoshere*. When he sees Elizabeth he is immediately attracted to her but he thinks she is a “friend” of his brothers. *insertassholeryhere*
When Elizabeth meets Ryan, there is something about him that makes her whole body hum. She tries hard to fight her attraction to him. She is confused by his attitude with her but when they realize a misunderstanding of GIANTIC proportions was made, it ends up costing Elizabeth her job. Ryan, feeling bad, does something unexpected to him, he helps her out.
Slowly, they break down each other’s walls and soon find themselves confiding in each other about everything. Ryan has feelings he didn’t know could possibly exist and he also has secrets, ones that if she were to discover them, will send her running the other way.
I have to say, it took a bit for me to warm up to Emily and once I did, I really enjoyed her character. She is smart, puts other’s before herself, and she is beautiful and determined.
Ryan is the character when you first meet him you are not fond of him but grow to love him. He is a jerk, he doesn’t listen, it is his way or the highway but he has HEART.
This story is funny, sad, romantic and a bit angsty and there is a bit of a cliffhanger- not a HUGE one but one that will change the course of Ryan and Elizabeth...
Emily Krat did a wonderful job. Flawed and Damaged is a great read.
I can’t wait to see where Ryan and Elizabeth end up.
