I watched in horror the day the World Trade Centre collapsed, taking with it my fiancee and unborn child. As a firefighter on the scene, I blame myself for not rescuing them. Enlisting in the United States Army did nothing to dissuade my guilt, it only proved to me what I knew all along: The world is too cruel, too dark and twisted to live in any longer.
So I'm taking the easy way out. On the 14th anniversary of 9/11, on my 40th birthday, I will return to Ground Zero, where I will finally be reunited with my loved ones. Forever.
I have just three weeks left to live.
It would destroy my sister if she ever found out why I really came back home. She thinks I'm just here to help out with Saddles, but the truth is I have a secret, one that tears me apart and threatens to consume me. It was just one night. One stupid, messed-up, drunken night.
The consequences will live with me forever.
When these flawed hearts collide, will they heal one another . . . or burn together in a blaze of glory?

I remember exactly where I was on September 11, 2001. Flawed begins that very morning and it really set the tone for the pain, anguish, and heartache that was felt by many on that day. The shock of such a startling attack and the reality of so many lost loved ones gave this book a powerful and emotional beginning. I didn't lose anyone close to me on that day, but after reading the beginning of Flawed, I gained a glimpse into the life of someone who did. Keets and Natalie were both battling their inner demons and I was eager to see if they could come together to conquer them. I absolutely loved (and loathed) the point where Flawed collided with Imperfect. I hadn't seen that coming at all and it definitely made my jaw drop in more than one instance. I was beside myself wondering what Natalie was going to do next. I did not envy being in her position at all. I hoped that Keets would be able to help and that it would finally help him to change his plans for himself. I was glad when everything finally came out into the open and everyone was able to get through to Keets. This was a beautiful story about pain and redemption. The ending was a killer and I am going to need the next installment ASAP!
Loved this very emotional story & the characters-Keets was awesome & ama?ing-love, love this series-more please!
4.5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, pain, depression, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Imperfect (Blaze of Glory #1) This is Natalie and Keets’s story. Keets lost his pregnant fiancé in the attacks of 9/11. He was on the scene that day as a fire-fighter but was unable to save them. The guilt is eating him alive and had been ever since it happened 14 years ago. You get to know his inner turmoil. He is ready for the end to come to him and he has a plan. Natalie and Keets meet and have hot chemistry. With them both holding back secrets are they going to help heal each other or just be a stopping point until the end? The both have secrets that could destroy everything. Can they figure out those secrets before they destroy everything? Or is the end the only way out? This book ends on a cliffy. Be prepared to have a wait until the next part of the story……I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book.
