Flawless by Jan Moran

"There's always an ugly side to beauty." - Jan Moran

"An engrossing view into the world of 'beautiful people' with an ending that will leave you wanting more." - New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster

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 the first book in the Hostile Beauty Series. Follow a group of smart, stylish, entrepreneurial friends as they navigate the turbulences of modern life in the business of beauty. Set in Beverly Hills with action flung across the globe, this engaging series features gutsy, determined best friends, and how they manage to live the lives of their dreams.


Verena thinks things are going very well, her skincare company is ready for the international market, she is engaged to a man she trusts and her grandmother and twin sisters are all right. She's earned the important prize she receives as she's worked so hard for it. On that night she meets Lance, who is a gourmet chef. They have a click and when they talk they feel completely at ease with one another. Unfortunately Verena is tied to another man. When she doesn't get the promised finances he wants to help her, which makes her depend on him more and more. A few days in Paris change something in Verena's heart, but can she listen to it? Everything she holds so dear is starting to fall apart. Will Verena stay upright or will she fall very hard?
Flawless is a story about beauty. Strong women are creating the most luxurious skin products. It was a joy to read about them. Verena is strong and smart, but she's too kind. That is what makes her so likable. She wants to take care of others, but she often forgets herself. And that will cost her dearly. Flawless isn't a fairytale story, it's about the sometimes hard reality of business. I liked the creativity of the main characters, they had some truly amazing ideas. Family is important and for Verena her grandmother and sisters come first, that is very noble. Even if things aren't going according to plan she always thinks about her family and not about her own problems. Flawless kept me glued to my seat, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I just had to keep reading until the very end. The story captured me and I loved every minute of it. Flawless is great. There's so much tension, it wanted to make me scream sometimes. I love it when I feel so many different emotions while reading the same story, for me that's exactly as it should be. If you like strong and independent women, beautiful products and great clothes, delicious gourmet food combined with kindness, warmth and a wonderful love story, Flawless is the perfect book for you.
