“Life is meant to hurt people, it wouldn’t be called life if it didn’t.”

I finished the book a few days ago and I have been trying to come up with a proper review for it. I “met” the author on Instagram, that’s how I discovered her book. The Defective is set in the future, 3017, and the MC Tave is feeling things she shouldn’t. Emotions that aren’t supposed to exist and disrupt you. Ones that are illegal.

An excellent and fresh story from new (and local to me!) indie author Ryan Jones.

I really enjoyed this book! The moment I picked it, I was sucked in and finished it within a few days. Ryan does an exceptional job with hooking the reader and telling a story.
I will say that there was quite a lot of romance and a few f-bombs and other curse words. I'm fine with this (and actually quite enjoyed the romance!) But, this isn't really written anywhere. Just make sure you're okay with cursing and descriptive romance before picking up this book.
Otherwise, it was a fun read! I'm a
