Publisher's Summary

Nathan wasn't sure why people were so obsessed with dating and sex.

Sure it probably felt good, but he just couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about. It might have helped if he knew what he was looking for. But with so many labels and options, he just wasn't sure. It seemed so easy to everyone else, but to him, it felt like something was missing.

Gabriel thought Nathan was absolutely perfect. Sweet, funny, sexy, and completely confused about what he desired; but absolutely perfect. He wanted to help Nathan. Would his sexy roommate be open to something that was completely outside of the box or would Gabriel ruin their relationship before it even started?

    "Great story"

    Nathan & Gabriel are roommates. Nathan is smart guy but struggles socially. He's also a bit of a scatter brain & thrives on the boundaries that Gabriel sets for him. After overhearing a sleep talking Gabriel, Nathan begins to wonder if there could be more between the two of them.

    I liked how they talked to each other about what they both wanted & made sure it was right for both of them. After years of feeling indifferent about relationships & sex, Nathan is excited & curious about what they are starting.

    We are given a front row seat to their beautiful, sensual relationship. I fell in love with both of these men & their kink. Nathan's lack of filter was a great addition, it made me laugh & smile many times & I felt the love between these two men as they explored the lifestyle & each other.

    I liked the addition of Eric & Marcus. I look forward to their book.

    The narrator really bought them to life & made them real. I enjoyed listening to it & it added a great dimension to a great book most of the time but I will say that at times I felt that Gabriel sounded a bit detached & Nathan sometimes sounded quite juvenile. Overall I enjoyed listening to their story.

    I received an audio credit from the author & chose to leave my review.

    "3.5 Stars"

    This wasn't my usual kind of read, but I did finish it and the writing was good. The author treated the subject with respect and care. Many people would criticize the content of this book, but the relationship between Gabriel and Nathan was genuine and that supersedes everything else for me. Love is love.

    "Loved it!!"

    Nathan has been looking for something for a long time. But he didn't know what it was. He has no filter and socially awkward. I loved him.. Gabriel who's his roommate actually fufiled what he's been looking for but it took them time to figure it out. I would love to hear more about them. I loved them so much I want more. And in a perfect world I want Aly to understand and accept him for who he is and actually listen to him and not talk above him.

    "Great in audio!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Flawed Perfection to be better than the print version?

    Yes. When I read the ebook, I gave it 4 stars, which meant that I really liked it. Hearing it performed just brought it more to life for me, and I had to add another star.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flawed Perfection?

    Nathan learning to wag his tail cracked me up. I also liked when he stood up to his so-called friends.


    What does Kenneth Obi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kenneth Obi did a great job overall, but especially with Nathan. I felt like I was in his head with him as his thoughts flitted all over the place. The sexiness and innocence shone through as well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh a couple of times and smile often.


    Any additional comments?

    This author always provides stories that are kinky and yet really sweet. This was no exception. I enjoyed it immensely. I was provided a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "So Sweet!"
    If you could sum up Flawed Perfection in three words, what would they be?

    Innocent
    Sweet
    Discovery


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tried to listen to it in one sitting, but life got in the way :) The narrator was able to show the innocence in Nate. His running commentary and no filter was so funny.

    "Very sweet!"

    I really liked this book:) honestly it surprised me how much I liked it. The book is definitely 🔥🔥Nathan really isn't a 100% on his sexuality. Gabriel is Nathan's roommate and helps him discover what he likes. Gabriel is very sweet and patient with Nathan. The story is a sweet one! I highly recommend it

    Story
    "Super sweet puppy play romance"

    This was super cute. I know it states in the blurb that this is a puppy play novel, and it does contain some puppy play, but mostly it is an incredibly sweet romance between two roommates and a lovely story about finding out who you are and what you want.

    Nathan is a forensic accountant who lives in his own head. He has a squirrely brain and no brain to mouth filter. He is sweetness personified but really do need a keeper. He has one, in the shape of his roommate Gabriel, who discreetly manages Nathan whilst quietly obsessing over how attractive he is and how much he wants him.

    Nathan is a virgin, not from any hard held beliefs, but only due to the fact that he has never gotten interested enough in anyone to go any further than casual dating. He is not sure if he is gay or straight or bi or something else, because nothing feels right. When he accidentally finds out that his roommate seems to be into BDSM and puppy play however, he is intrigued.

    Nathan is a great character, because not only is he completely clueless, he is also curious and has no social inhibitions, so he googles and asks the questions the reader has about the lifestyle and the kink. This is a common theme in M.A. Innes' work, that the author always tries to educate the reader as to what the participants may get out of the specific kink. And he always manages to do it in a way that never makes it seem like he is info-dumping on you.

    This is a lot more romance than it is erotica, despite the puppy play and the steamy scenes the main focus of the book is Nathan's road to discovery of he his and what he wants. Very sweet story and probably a good gateway book for people interested in puppy play as a kink, explanatory without being preachy and nothing too hardcore for a newbie.

    "Puppy Play"

    Your kink is not my kink.

    Gabriel and Nathan dare to trust each other enough to try a different spin on their relationship and discover a mutual enjoyment of kink, despite what others might think.
    There’s something about puppy play that calls to me. M.A. Innes has again tackled an unusual kink with fun. And informative without it being a how-to novel.

    Innes makes the critical part of this new facet of the relationship, negotiation of terms, funny and loving.

    The sex is hot, the cuddling is precious, and the love is palpable.

    As always, Kenneth Obi does a wonderful job bringing Nathan and Gabriel to life. He also handles Nathan’s internal ramblings – and lack of filter – with great talent.

    Even if this isn’t your kink, it is a fun read.

    A well narrated story. Both MCs were very well represented. It was obvious from the beginning that they cared for one another and were meant to be together. Good story.

    Story
    "I knew nothing about........"

    OK, so before listening to this book, I knew absolutely nothing about puppy play but it's explained so sweetly in this story. As usual, M A Innes takes a subject that could be considered 'out of the norm' and makes the reader not only understand it but maybe want to try it! The characters of Nathan and Gabriel show that there's someone perfect for everyone and I'm so glad they got a happy ending.

    Kenneth Obi does a fantastic job narrating this sweet and sexy story, he voices Nathan and Gabriel in a believable way. They are both loveable but Gabriel's understanding and patience with Nathan shines through.

    I'm now eagerly awaiting a follow up story so I can fall for the guys a little bit more.

    Go on, give it a try.....you might just like it.

    "Fantastic book, even better in auible"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh yes I would definitely recommend this to people, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but wonderfully written, I loved it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character would have to be Nathan, but Gabriel would be a very close second, the characters work so well together, Nathan comes across as a shy guy, who could never understand why everyone got so worked up in romance, Gabriel is Nathan roommate, who thought Nathan was funny great company. Every thing.


    What about Kenneth Obi’s performance did you like?

    Kenneth Obi's was wonderful to listen too, I read this book a little while ago, Listening to Kenneth bring the story to life, wow...just wow.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Absolutely perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this author books, they are always different not your normal romances they have unusual sexual topics. Which are always beautiful written, very entertaining. If you want something a little different. Look out for this author.
    Highly recommend
