About Outsider (Flawed #2)
After a psychopath tried to kill his friends, Josh Schuyler figured 'normal' was far off. The real problem: Josh's friends have all acquired supernatural abilities, while he's still the same average guy.
Josh has always believed he was destined for greatness, but he's been out of college for two years without a clue of his purpose. After watching his friends and siblings develop superhuman traits, he wonders if he might be meant for something grand, too. Can Josh even hope for an extraordinary event in his own future? And how long must he wait for this transformation - if there is one?
When Alex met the Schuylers, she was grateful for new friends to whisk her away from her lonely life in California and give her an escape from her divorced, bickering parents and aimless future. But Josh won't drop his defenses, and Alex isn't sure she wants to trade her old life for this new, uncertain one.
Nicodemus has an amazing ability he's been milking for years to get whatever or whomever he wants. Things are going great until a young woman - Alex - inadvertently busts his latest swindle. Nic is furious when he discovers his power has been disabled, and he vows to find her in order to wreak his vengeance. She will be punished. All he needs is a little help from his friend, Ethan Black.
Josh has been waiting for his big break, or for the chance to be a hero, or just the opportunity to stand out in his own, extraordinary way.
Will Josh discover his purpose in time to stop Nic?


My review of Outsider! 
I had the chance to get an ARC copy of this book. What I like in general with Indie authors is that the next book is always better than the previous one, but I think with this one Becca Campbell really set the task really high for herself. 
I already loved the previous book in the series, but Outsider was so much better.
I think it was a lot easier for me to relate with the main character, Josh. I already liked him from the previous novel and thought that he would have been a better match for Jade than Cam or Logan but it didn't turn that was as he was just a minor character. It was a really nice move to bring him to the front of the scene and to have the book mainly written in his point of view. Even when complaining, Josh didn't feel whiny at all which was a nice surprise. He still moves forward even with all the odds against him and even more when it turns really bad.
The romance in the book was really realistic and flowed just perfectly. Alex is a very realistic character and I like how well she fits in the story. The bad guy was also more defined and easier to understand than the previous one and it was good that all the fact ended up linked to each other. 

Another good part about this book is that he felt really self standing so that I didn't have to try and remember what happened before.
I would heartily recommend this book, but I have to give a warning though: You might fall in love with a character.
More Flawed Books
Empath (Flawed #1)
Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.
Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.
When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.
Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.

Pulled (A Flawed Short Story)
Eight-year-old Juniper has been labeled many things—troubled kid, orphan, runaway—but none of her foster families have known what she really is: a girl with a unique and brutally inconvenient ability to teleport.
Her spontaneous jumps are not only beyond her control, they get her into trouble. When Juniper disappears, no one believes her wild stories, so she's stopped trying to convince them.
One day when Juniper gets pulled away, finding her way back is harder than ever. Stranded on the side of a deserted highway, she must rely on her own instincts to determine who is a creepy stranger and who she can trust.
Resourcefulness may get her home, but is getting home enough when you don't have parents that love you?
Juniper knows something most people don’t: there are others like her with unexplained abilities. Until now, she’s exercised stranger-danger caution, but maybe these people can offer what she needs.
Will Juniper find a family she can share her secrets with?
