Flawed Heart (House of Obsidian #1) by Bella Jewel

This isn’t the man I married.
The man I married was strong, beautiful and pure.
The man I married cherished our lives together.
The man I married loved me.
This…this isn’t that man.
One night. One accident. It changes everything.

I wish I could tell you the exact moment he fell out of love with me.
I wish I could tell you there was hope. That I hung on. That I fought.
I wish I could tell you that we fixed it.
That happily ever after was just out of our grips.

It wasn’t. I ran. In the dead of the night, I packed my things and I left him.
Now I’m back. He’s still the same man. A deadly underground fighter for the House of Obsidian. He’s still dangerous. He’s still broken. I still love him.

This is the part where I’m supposed to turn back around and run… But I don’t.

ARC provided by the author in exchange for a honest review.
This was more then a 5* star read for me, it blew me away and hit so many emotions. I'm afraid to say that Bella Jewel is a new author to me, I'd heard of her before just never got round to buying or reading any of her books but after this book I bought and started reading her MC books too and am loving them.
Flawed Heart is told in flash backs which was new to me I've never read a story where it keeps changing from present to past. At first I wasn't sure if I'd like it but you needed the flash backs to see their story been told properly and its what made this book so much more emotional and gripping.
I don't want to give to much away as it'll spoil it for the reader so I wont tell you their secrets but Belle and Max met in college and went on to get married, something happened and Belle went away for 5 years and this is their story about what happened and how their pasts affect their present. 

Max is the owner of the House of Obsidian and is a dark dangerous and powerful man who runs a underground fighting ring which he also partakes in. Even though he has this dark side because of what happened in his past, he also has this possessive alpha feeling towards Belle and I do love a alpha bad boy. 

Belle has been away for 5 years but returned as her mum is dying, she has a big secret though and doesn't know how to tell Max after all these years. Struggling with everything can Belle tell Max the truth and when she does will he be there for her?

Sometimes you come across a book that just captures your heart, whether its personal to you or just the brilliant writing of the author there's a time when this happens and this for me was one of those books. I was up till 4 in the morning finishing it and after the little teaser at the end I cant wait for Raide's book. Emotional gripping book that's a must read for any reader out there who loves a good emotional and heart pulling romance.
