Review: Flawless by Kimber Chin

(Tavos Santos’ story - our knife wielding vigilante in Invisible)
Launch Date: February 2010
Publisher: Champagne Books

Is love worth killing for?

Grace Williams has a list of things she wants to do before she dies: walk a tightrope, dye her hair purple, skinny dip in the ocean, kiss the scarred stranger sent to kill her…

Yeah, Tavos Santos is a killer but f— it if he’s going to be Grace’s killer. There are other relationships he’d rather have with the gloved beauty. None of them requiring knives.

It takes a killer to catch a killer. Now Tavos must decide… Is love worth killing for?

I obtained this information from Ms. Kimber's web site.

This book is my own - as is this review. All thoughts are my own.
I do not give spoilers away, and this is short story... so I will not give away too much.

Grace is a woman with a mission in life, a mission to die. Or at least that is what she thinks is going to happen. She is running from an abusive/psycho/demented father. Grace accepts her fate with her head held high and decided that if she has to die, she is going to make a list and scratch off the things she's always wanted to do. I immediately took to Grace. While I read of her character I could see her emotions, her feelings and I could picture her thought process. I also could see her as a friend of mine. She is a person that would do anything for you. You can not help but fall in love with her. She has a bit of charm to her that hints on the side of dingy that will make you laugh sometimes; then other times you will be like WTH? She is a strange girl, but one you will want to be friends with.

Tavos, he is f*cking unbelievable. He is the f*cking bad guy of bad guys but with the heart of pure gold ((I am looking over my shoulder to make sure Tavos is not reading this, because he would not like for that to get Okay, let me rectify that, he is the f*cking back guy of bad guys - PERIOD. His past is f*cking bad. His habits are f*cking twice as bad and his mouth is... well, if you are still with me... f*cking delicious. Why is the f word here so much, because that is his favorite word. This word is as much a part of him as his arms or legs. It is just who Tavos is. What is wrong with that being his favorite word, well he is trying to publicly promote his jewelry store and f*ck is not what people want to hear on tv. But Tavos is the f*cking bad boy of boys... And he is the f*cking sex on stick. I think he is what invented the sex on a stick. The man wields a knife like we wield our cell phones. He is never without it and as odd as it may seem, it is his comfort stick. But with the help of some friends, he over comes his past and makes a better future for himself, or at least that is what he thought until he meets Grace and his f*cking world changes.

This book is explosive. I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time I read this book. I almost called Ms. Chin a couple of names (she will forgive me, lol, I hope) because I could not for the life of me figure out what was going to happen. The loop I was thrown was not where I wanted to go - or not where I thought I wanted to go. This woman kept me in suspense the whole time. And I loved her even more for all the hell she put me though. This book is by far her best. I love her work, it is no secret, but this book... WOW. This book took my breath away, held it for some time, then just burst back through my lungs and had me gasping for more! Ms. Kimber's style of writing is just --to use Tavos' words -- f*cking awesome.
