#Review: Flawless by Jan Moran @janmoran
This book was a Flawless execution of a romance book.
I was captivated from the beginning until the end. The author provided amazing twist and turns leaving the reader wondering how the story would end. The characters were strong and a true fighter all the way. Some people may see this as the average romance novel but they really are not looking deep enough.
The story will take readers around the world and back. Each time leaving the readers wondering how they traveled to so many places while sitting at home.
I recommend this book to any who enjoy romance.

Verena Valent is at the helm of her family’s legendary Swiss skincare company, which caters to a glamorous clientele in the heart of Beverly Hills. After her parents are killed in an automobile accident, she becomes the sole provider for her younger twin sisters and her grandmother. Instead of attending college with her friends as planned, she rises to the challenge to guide and expand her family’s business. She is in the midst of a critical international expansion into Asia when her carefully organized life begins to unravel.
Verena is shaken to discover that her fiancé, Derrick, might be behind a scheme to take over her growing company. While she struggles to save the business that means everything to her, she meets Lance, an executive chef at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She encounters this intriguing man again while on a business trip to Paris, and soon gains a new perspective on love, romance, and relationships.
When the unthinkable occurs and Verena’s world collapses, her friends rally around her, among them Scarlett Sandoval, a top intellectual property attorney; Dahlia DuBois, a perfumer from an esteemed line of French perfumers; and Fianna Fitzgerald, a fashion designer with her own trendy boutique.
Ultimately, Verena learns that truth, family, friendship, and love are the unshakable pillars of life. But will she get a second chance in business, or in love?

“Flawless is an astute, intelligent, gripping romance for the modern woman. Jan Moran’s writing took me to the edge; she creates a heroine whom you can’t fail to care for and understand. A fabulous first book in the series; I can’t wait to read the next one!” – Hannah Fielding, Author of The Echoes of Love
