FLAWLESS MISTAKE (The Spencer & Sione Series, #0) by Rachel Woods is the prequel to her series and establishes the characters and the “mistake” that brings them all together.

Spencer Edwards is out of work and money. She allows her half-sister to talk her into her ‘Dating Protocol’ scheme even though she knows it is criminally wrong. When she is sitting in the park one afternoon debating this turn in her life, a handsome and charismatic stranger, Ben Chang, sits next to her and she begins to

This cover is wicked. Interested to see if the plot and photo go together.

Review written by the publisher at BonzaiMoon Books and contains some spoilers.

What drew me to this book was the complexity of the characters and loving the play on the words of the title “Flawless” when all the characters in the story are deeply flawed. The main character, Spencer is one of those tough feisty girls who walks the tight rope of wanting to do the right thing, but often gives herself a pass to do the wrong thing. She “allows” herself to be manipulated by an overbearing older sister

Houston, TX; Townhouse. Spencer Edwards woke up & Benjamin Ben Chang (Asian) was lying in her bed.
“Love, marriage, baby carriage.” That would never happen with Spencer.
Rae (1/2 half-sister) & Spencer had devised a plan. They titled it Dating Protocol.

A very dangerous love/sex game.

I started out to read the first four or five chapters of "Flawless Mistake". Three and a half hours later, I had finished the book (yes, I read slow and I re-read a paragraph to see if he said what!!) I'm captivated by the characters and want more details on them. Spencer has lost her mind. Ben Chang is a slithery tongued lizard and Sione can't figure out if he's good or evil. The sisters, well, hmmm … is Shady a Christian or is there a shady side to her? There are just enough twists to keep you ...more

Suspense Filled Drama.
Spencer and Ben have a connection they have bene building on for a while. Spencer swore she was not going to steal from him like she does all her other “dates”. Times are tough however and a girl has to do what a girl has to do. She gets caught, almost killed, and in the process she stabs Ben and leaves him bleeding and calling out to her for help. She swears from that moment going forward she is not going to steal from people again and is going to work a real job no matte

WOW!!! Just, WOW!!! Flawless Mistake puts the reader on the edge of their seat and there I stayed. Turning pages, one after the other till the end... Oh, but there seems to be much, much more. And a necessity to read the next book. Spencer Edwards and her two half sisters have had a difficult life. One sister is someone who wants something and does whatever it takes to get it, no matter the cost....especially to someone else. One sister's faith leads her...always. Spencer has been out of work an ...more

Sisters start "Dating", their code for getting close to wealthy older men and steal from them. Spenser gets involved with Ben, decides to steal from him. He wakes up and shoots a gun near her. She attempts to hide from him. She ends up stabbing him and running out of his abode. Ben is not what she thinks. He is very sinister and gets women to do favors for him to pay a debt for turning against. If they do not do what he wants, their are consequences. This makes you want to read the next book in ...more

Interesting idea for a story but not believably put together. She has a knife and he has a gun yet somehow she stabs him and gets away. Never bring a knife to a gunfight, they say ... Spencer is convinced by his sister that what she does isn't prostitution because she chooses the (rich) man who'll she'll sleep with before drugging him and robbing him blind!
The writing was pretty good.

This book had a couple of thieves. One evil and one just trying to survive. There's a very dangerous hidden agenda. It was fairly fast paced. I enjoyed the plot. It ends on a cliffhanger.

I'll start with, I hate cliffhangers. That being said,the storyline was engaging. I have always enjoyed who done its and this story kept me entertained. Multiple stories within the overall story. I just don't enjoy having to buy the next book to finish a storyline.
Overall a wonderful read.

It could have been more interesting if it wasn't so repetitive. Must i be reminded in every chapter about the fact that Spencer is not looking for love and the reason behind it? Not much happens in those 80 pages.It could have easily been 30 pages less by skipping all the boring retelling.

A good prequel to the novel coming. It was well written and set the stage for what is to come. Looking forward to what is to come next with Spencer and Ben. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader's Copy of this book.

This is a well written book. Not my usual go-to-read but I'd read another book by this author. Kept me wanting to turn the next page to see what happened.

I received a free copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

This prequel novella is tense, sexy and well written, but it suffers somewhat as a stand-alone book as the plot is primarily an introduction to a larger story.

Flawless Mistake opens with sex, intrigue and danger, and these elements continue to drive the story all the way to the end. The characters and their motivations are believable and engaging, and the two protagonists are endearing despite their questionable codes of mor

I was given this ARC by an author unknown to me and I agreed to give it an honest review. Now, I'm intrigued with her writings and I want to discover more about Spencer, Ben, and Sione's dark triangle! Spencer Edwards had been let go from her job, but with unemployment checks, she was determined to find another job, but unemployed people were too many for the few openings in Houston where she lived. She sat on a bench feeling hat she'd blown her interview for a job when Ben Chang sat next to her ...more

When I read the synopsis, I thought this would be a chance from what I usually read. It didn't pull me in at the beginning but as I kept reading, it began to pull me in because I needed to know what happened with Spencer, Ben and Sione. This is more of a mystery than romance and I can't wait to read the next on, Flawless Danger to see what happens next.
This is a first for me from Rachel Woods and I will be reading more from her.

A twisted intertwined story involving a robbery gone bad. This book is a scene setter for what is to follow.

Quick, good read. Waaay too short. There was an excerpt from the next book included at the end of the book.
