I am having a hard time writing this review because there just aren’t the words to do this story justice! I finished it in a matter of hours, completely unable to put it down.

We are back in the wonderful world of London and LoÏc and they are just so happy. They are silly and funny and steamy and oh, so perfect.

Provided an ARC for an honest review.

I don't even know why I am trying to write this review right now, I just finished this AMAZING second chapter of Loic and London's story. The emotional rollercoaster that this book takes you on is just heartbreaking and beautiful! If you have any connection to the military similar to book one this second book really digs down deep to provide a really accurate and realistic look at what it feels like to have a significant other deploy for their country.

I did NOT know this was a cliffhanger when I read it. I got to the end and was almost in tears - some might have welled up - because I wasn't ready for it to end! So I NEED book 3 NOW!!

London and Loïc (I still love his name) are happily in their new relationship, doing what couples do and having a great time. Preparing for Loïc to deploy shortly but trying not to think of the impending departure.

Loïc is so happy with London and it's obvious that he's glad he took the chance on getting involved

The Story just keeps growing into so much more than boy meets girl! I just have to say I love Loïc and London together, their chemistry bleeds through the pages when they are together. In this book so much more happens we meet new characters like London's family who I adored reading about. I loved all of their firsts through out this series, some are pretty hot and steamy too.

I'm really in love with this series, I finished this book around 1 am and I had to keep reading I had to know what was g

Keeping London picks up right where the last book ended. Loïc is getting ready for deployment and this book follows them up until he leaves and then while he is away.

Let me start with what I did like about the book. The cover is WOW. This one and the first book's covers are just really amazing. So original. They are like a work of art! I also loved reading about their love and how strong it was. The adventures that they went on before the deployment and the communication that they had while he

So when you start this book, you pick up right where Finding London left off. If you have read ANYTHING by Ellie, you will know that she does the most devilish things to her characters. This one is no different. Preying on the emotions and pasts of both characters, Ellie really made your heart break with this book. But I feel that she had to do it. Most of her books are about the characters growing and finding out who they are and what they really want. But at the same time, it makes you a littl ...more

I honestly don't know that I can put into words my feelings about this book. There's so many! I'm all over the place but it all boils down to I LOVED THIS BOOK! I love these characters so much and their story always just sucks me right in. If you haven't read Finding London yet that's book one so start with that one. I don't want to put any spoilers in my review so this will be a rather short one but OH THE FEELS! I simply can not wait for the third and final book in this series. Impatiently wai ...more

Oh the angst. Loic broke my heart. And I'm a little nervous about what this couple will have to go through in order to get their HEA.
The Pink Bookshelf
This book! Omg! Seriously, get tissues and wine. You WILL need them! We start back all sunshine and roses, then the feels start. As you can tell from the synopsis, Loic deploys. I was a blubbering mess. I was so worried about him! This book get REAL. Like for real. You might even forget that you are reading a fictional book at times. Yes, this book has all of those feels. A lot of people will connect with this book like others can’t.

Jul 23, 2017 rated it it was amazing
this 2nd book in the Flawed Hearts series finds the characters 6 months after their first meeting, just weeks before Loïc departs for war.
This book has double the amount of chapters as book 1 but are shorter so reader feels as if rushing into action, raising our anxiety.
In book 2 both Loïc and London have grown as people and as a couple. The difference within the self-absorbed London to whom she is now is incredible.

After reading "Finding London" I was so excited to continue being a part of Loic and London's story and seeing it unfold in it's chaotic, messy beauty. Loic is a stoic, deep, emotional man with deep-seated fears and insecurities because of the crap hand his been dealt in life. London and Loic fall in love and Loic lets his walls down just enough so London can seep in and help fill the holes of his heart. Until tragedy strikes and Loic is back to putting up his walls to guard his already fragile ...more

Keeping London is book two in the Flawed series and you do not want to read this first so don't miss out on one clicking books one . As Finding London had me hooked this one had me hanging to every word and not wanting it to end . This is much more emotional so be prepared to cry you're eyes out , cheer for the beloved couple to stay together , and yell at your kindles .

I HATE you Ellie!
You are like the meanest author in the whole wide world. I had not had an ugly cry and at the end of this book let me tell you. I was balling like a freaking baby. I mean in the fetal position and crying like a darn baby.
Loic oh sweet Loic. How my heart broke for you several times in this book. London you love so much and so greatly and that is one of your flaws. I love how these books make you look at the good and the bad of each relationship. Everyone has some kind of flaws

This book basically broke my heart in so many ways! SUCH a good story! But be prepared for an emotional roller coaster. The author has a way with words, and I was crying at multiple points in the story. I was so excited to dive back into the world of London and Loic, but I wasn't ready for so many emotions. This book kept me guessing and kept me near the tissues the entire time. I don't want to spoil too much of the story with this review. But lets just say if you loved the first book in the Fla ...more

Not as happy with this installment

So this book could’ve most definitely been added to the last one. So instead of two books it was just one! I’m sure the other two installments are the same way. This part of the book dragged on for me. It was mostly repeats of everything they said with the exception of David(which I new was coming) it wouldn’t be a love story without a ton of heartache! And I new Sarah would try something too, not sure if she is doing it intentionally yet or has more romantic i

This second book of the Flawed Heart series does not disappoint. Ellie Wade writes realistic characters dealing with heartbreak and real heart wrenching issues. Loïc and London's characters evolve and develop amidst turmoil. These characters, their experiences, drive this page turning story. What I appreciate the most about this story is that it is written with deep emotion, heart ache, and pain in a very realistic way. Ellie Wade is not afraid to take us on an emotional ride as we watch these b ...more

5 stars

Before I start this review, I do have to tell you that you have to read the first book of this series to understand everything that is going on in this book. I liked this book much more than I did the first one. I believe there was so much more depth with the characters and I loved that it was about them growing as a couple rather than added more to the mix of the story line. The first book leaves off with Loic getting deployed and being gone

When reading books of a series back to back I always have a difficult time writing the reviews separate because in my head it is an ongoing story and it is difficult for me to cut it somewhere when I read it together.

So therefore here are my thoughts on “Finding London” and “Keeping London” by Ellie Wade.

Who came up with that name ? Loïc? That was one of my thoughts … it took me a long time until I found out how to pronounce that – but on the other hand … intriguing and it keeps you thinking.

Still recovering…

Having read Books 1 and 2 of the Flawed Heart this weekend, I’m still struggling to find the words for this review, and I’m’ still soooooo pissed too…
I need Book 3 like NOW.
I knew this book would be about Loïc and London being apart, distance, angst and military / conflicts issues.
Still, I wasn’t prepared enough, especially for one development I was seeing coming “in some way” but not at this “level”…

Cryptic much? Yes, since I want to keep my review spoiler-free
