Flawed by Vivian Kohlman 💕 Fun Facts, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)

That guy—the one that most girls would run away from—captured Kara’s attention and wouldn’t let it go. As expected, he turned out to be a player. So she cut him off.

But he wasn’t done with her yet. He waited until the memory of their start would have been forgotten—at least, softened a bit. Then he returned to her life, and captured her heart.

Finally blissfully happy, they fall in love and decide to make it official…until his past catches up with him and he destroys her again. But this is it…this is the last time she’ll fall for him.

And she keeps telling herself that until she almost believes it.

This book is for mature audiences.

All of the characters in Flawed (the first book in the Young and Privileged of Washington, DC series) are based on friends and family of the author. The names have been changed (to protect the innocent!), but the personalities are the same. I’m too shy to reveal which character I represent, or which parts of the story are true (yes, it’s based on a true story, too). But rest assured, I didn’t leave myself out!

The same goes for the other books in the series. All characters and stories have influences. It may be a friend, a song, or a picture I see…but most of the characters and stories started with what I see and hear.

Chapter 1

I picked up my phone to check for messages and, well, to be honest I was using it as a way to not have to speak to whatever guy Dania left me with.

“Hi Kara, I’m Naheed,” a deep, relaxed voice stated.

When my eyes met his, everything seemed to stop. I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t hear the music anymore, and I felt like I was about to faint…I was mesmerized by him. He was gorgeous, but it was more than that. I felt his presence in my stomach.

He had naturally tan skin, dark brown thick and wavy hair, deep and large brown eyes with black eyelashes a mile long…and a slight under-bite that that instantly brought my attention to his full, perfect lips. He was so familiar to me, but I couldn’t place him.

I looked down to stop myself from staring and noticed that my bare, crossed legs were nearly touching his leg; we were very close—and he was slightly leaning in towards me. I suddenly wished I wore jeans instead of this short skirt. I felt exposed…and had to fight to keep my leg from moving to touch his.

The four words he said to me were echoing through my head…and I still couldn’t respond. I could only look at him…and I saw nothing else. I sat there in silence for way too long…unable to do much more than barely smile through what probably looked to be an unimpressed expression (I was good at hiding my emotions). …sometimes that came back to haunt me.

The Young and Privileged of Washington, DC series are romance novels written with the backdrop of the nation's capital. Live the lives, vicariously, of the upper class kids of Washington, DC. There are no politics involved; just the love and friendship challenges shared by all of us. They make mistakes, find happiness, and are broken-hearted at times…but one thing never changes: they are privileged and will always end up OK. 

Each of the novels are full-length romance stories and can be read alone, though some stories span over more than one novel. The books are for a mature audience, and may not be enjoyed by all; try one out and see if you like it!
