    Wow! This book to me on an emotional rollercoaster! An awesome read! Sullivan, Kina, Angel, and Lawson friendship stood the test of time. It shows you never know what a person is going through. And that every action has a reaction. I also learned even more that nobody is perfect! Great read!Wow! This book to me on an emotional rollercoaster! An awesome read!

    Loved it. Following the lives of 5 women kept me wanting to know more. I especially loved the way their lives intertwined, yet their friendship though bent, never broke! Would be great to one-day see this play out on stage.

    When I received this book from the author I was very ready, set, go…This book became my side kick that brought five characters that became my friends. You have Lawson, Reginell, Sullivan, Angel and Kina. The divas of all times, that takes you into their personal lives of happiness, sad and hope all in one. The title Flaws and All fits the story to perfectly up until the end. All the characters do have flaws along with all other things going on in their lives. I bring to you Urban Christian that left me with a twist and turn of a roller coaster of a different kind.After a one night stand at a young age, Lawson Kerry decides to have a baby and raise it on her own by choice. All through the book Lawson is a self centered, right justice and can’t see her wrongness kind of person. A man name Garrett that is a genuine, patient and down to earth has help her along the way as her boyfriend that has ask her over and over as the years pass to marry him. But for some strange reason Lawson keeps pulling away and refusing to marry Garrett. Oh, but something is hanging in the darkness for Lawson that is going to bit her in the butt and break her down. Sullivan is not your average first lady that totes the bible around with her and saves lives standing next to her husband twenty four seven. The first lady Sullivan Webb is a hot mess that has an itch that takes her out of her husband Charles arms. The sex wasn’t good for Sullivan anymore instead of telling her husband. She finds herself in the world of lust and adultery with a young tender roni in the middle of Charles campaign that destroy the love that brought them together. Will their marriage stand up to the betrayal?After reading about this character Angel King I believe in bad luck, from day one her marriage didn’t work out and because of the stress she has a miscarriage that leaves her in her own little world as a bitter lady. As her job takes her out to different patient houses to comfort them in their last days of happiness. Lord and behold a trap is set for her by the women that stole her husband in the mist of it all. But Angel can’t see the help that’s needed because of all the hurt and hate she has for the two that destroyed her life. Will she have a change of heart?You hear about verbal and physical abuse every day, but it’s something else when you read about it. Kina Battle had a life of pain that no women should have to adore under any conditions. Kina is a go getter that married a sorry man that didn’t deserve the air he woke up to everyday and breath. Their son was conceived while in high school and all the plans the two of them had went down the drain. All the time Kina was blaming herself and taking the blame for all that had happen by taking the beatings by the hands of her husband. For years she was in the dark of blame but the light shined in and the tragic day came for all. Can Kina turn the hands of time and save her husband?Compare to all the characters this one person Reginell Kerry didn’t stand out at all, she was more of the ones that put into the story as Lawson sister and very under developed. The story started out with her determination to be a singer; at times she would just popup and is arguing back and forth with the divas. They was always on her about not living right but I didn’t catch her personality or exactly who herself stood for, I only know her as Lawson little sister.

    “Their lives will never be the same.” I read the back cover and eagerly opened the book to see what life had in store for these five sisters from Savannah, GA. Flaws and All, takes the reader on a journey through each of the characters lives from: the ultimate act of betrayal, and the tragic consequences of anger, to the revelation of secrets, and the sacredness of true forgiveness. I was immediately drawn into the storyline. From the beginning, I was scared for Kina and Kenny, annoyed by Sully’s selfishness, upset by Lawson’s decisions, floored by Angel’s discovery, and not surprised at all by Reggie’s behavior. I turned each page impatiently wanting to find out if Kina would be free, whether Sully would cheat, when Lawson would reveal the truth, and if Angel would forgive the woman who had stolen her husband. I must admit, I was so caught up, until I skipped to the last chapter of the book to see how it would end. It didn’t ruin the story for me at all. I returned to my former place in the book and continued to read with great anticipation. The story was gripping and undeniably profound. Flaws and All, reveals genuine friendships, unconditional love, and sincere forgiveness. One of my favorite lines comes from a conversation between Angel and Theresa [Reese] about un-forgiveness. Reese says, “…you can choose to be the prisoner with the life sentence, or the warden who sets her free.” Actually, there were quite a few lines that stuck out as profound to me like when Kina was asked, “…what’s scarier: finding out the truth or living a lie.” When the story began, Kina was bound by fear, Sully deceived by selfishness, Lawson tormented by a secret, and Angel engulfed by heartbreak and overwhelmed from un-forgiveness. By the end of the book, each woman was free from the very thing that had held her in captivity. Kina was free to pursue her dreams. Sully realized her most priceless treasure was her husband. Lawson learned that the truth can set you free, and Angel found that unconditional love and forgiveness transcends death. There are so many Christian Fiction books on the market now, until you can easily conclude that if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all. Not so with “Flaws and All.” Shana Burton has the ability to weave an amazing story while never letting the reader forget that despite all of our mess, “God loves us still, flaws and all.” ___Dianne Rosena Jones is the founder of Royal Treasures Publishing, a transformational life coach, motivational speaker, and author of “Tragic Treasures: Discovering Spoils of War in the Midst of Tragedy” nominated by Disilgold Soul Magazine as “BEST INSPIRATIONAL BOOK OF THE YEAR.” For more information check out her website at www.royaltreasurespublishing.com

    Flaws and All is a powerful novel that deals with heavy issues honestly, openly, and spiritually. Readers will instantly be caught up with these five women, their stories, and their faith.This novel surpassed my expectations. At first I thought it would be difficult to keep up with five characters, but Shana Burton has masterfully told their stories without cluttering the book or leaving anything out. Serious issues such as adultery, domestic violence, and deception are dealt with from the perspective of pain and loss but also forgiveness and triumph.The Christian message in this book is simple - like all Christians these women are not perfect and still have their struggles but their trust is firmly placed in God as the One who can bring them the strength to get through it all.After reading Flaws and All, Shana Burton has quickly given herself a place as one of my favourite Urban Christian authors.

    Sully was self centered wife of a pastor and couldn't care any less about his flock. Nowhere in the story or back story did the author indicate she had ever been any different so one has to wonder exactly what the good reverend saw in her in the first place. Reggie was the sister of Lawson and at least honest about who she is. Lawson was dead wrong for the way she treated Mark after he realized he had a son. She actually had the audacity to say to him in one scene how she took care of their son while he was off living his life. It was SHE who decided to NEVER call him to say she was pregnant so how could she expect him to do otherwise? Nonsensical. . Angel was just a little too good to be true by taking care of the "other" woman. Kina. put her son in an unnecessary position by thinking God was supposed to tell her to leave an abusive relationship.

    This story caught my interest right away I enjoy reading books which talks of friendship and support of friends These four friends each had their own issues but they remained friends even when it seems that some of their individual decision could have caused a rip in their friendship. This book covered a lot of situations which could be experienced by one or more persons that could easily cause a crack in the friendship, instead in the end they all were stronger by the each of their individual decisions. This book speaks of how Flaws make each of us individual and God loves us even with our flaws.

    This is a delicious read. I had the opportunity to interview the author. Flaws and All, tells the story of four female friends, who are dealing with social and/or personal issues. Flaws and All, is not a sad story by any means…more enlightening if anything. Each character is unique and stands alone. Shana Burton, dialogue is strong, witty, and at the right moments…comical. Her well developed characters help story lines flow smoothly. There was never a dull moment for me. I enjoyed the ride immensely. I can't wait for the sequel!

    Sullivan REALLY got on my nerves ! She made me want to put the book down. It surprised me to see a day and night change in her personality overnight, despite what happened to her. The book was too good to do that though. I love Angel. She's an amazing, strong woman. Her character endured a lot, but she made it through. Forgiveness is the key. Not only for or towards the other person, but for YOURSELF! Good book, look forward to reading more from the author.

    This is the first "girlfriend" book I've read in a long time and thoroughly enjoyed it! With precision, Shana Burton created real characters with real flaws. Lawson, Reginell, Sullivan, Angel, and Kina, although, the majority of the time didn't make the ideal choices, any woman who has ever loved or longed to be loved, can relate. I appreciate the fact that the author not only pushed the message of true forgiveness, but also one of self-responsibility/accountability.

    Fantastic. I love Shana's work. Great characters and just a fun read. Predictable, but not in a bad way, besides you NEVER knew what these women were going to say. Sullivan was the worse and the best and I loved the reconciliation at the end. I hope there is a sequel, because I'd love to see them again.

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved the Christian theme of this book. I loved how each character had a strong faith foundation. It is important to have faith family and friends. Everyone went through a journey in this book. Angel will be a much better person now that she has learned for forgiveness. It was hard to watch Kina be so conflicted and suffer through abuse. Sullivan changed the most.

    This was an interesting book and I really enjoyed it. I give this book 2 thumbs up!!! It was a reality check because these things are happening here today. I know God never puts more on you than you can bare but you have to make a move also. Kina should have stopped E' Bell the first time he put hands on her. I was glad that Lawson and Garrett eventually got married.
