Overview

There’s one thing Julia Wilson has learned in life: you can’t push aside your own dreams for anyone. Newly divorced, Julia returns to the small hometown she swore she’d left forever. She plans on enjoying the cheap rental a friend offers and staying there just long enough to figure out her next steps in life.

But before long, Julia realizes she’s made a big mistake.

A decade ago, Micah Anderson promised Julia forever but broke her heart right before she left for college. Now, Julia’s back in town, and he’s going to have to tell her the truth about why he left her—it’s impossible to hide a twelve-year-old child when you live in such a small town.

Can Julia forgive Micah and start anew? Should she try to make a relationship work if Micah’s past becomes a threat to her safety? Should she follow her dreams if it means giving up on a second chance with her first love?

Meet the Author

With the exception of three years spent in the middle of Nebraska, H. B. Heinzer has called southern Wisconsin home. Her first “official” writing was as a teenage guest contributor to an APAzine her father contributed to. In spite of her tender years, the other adult members voted her in.

Life intervened for a while, and writing fell by the wayside, but after her first daughter was born, she started a blog, More Than Moms, as a way to vent about her struggle to hold onto her own identity in the midst of motherhood. After that, not even the loss of her first attempt at a full-length novel, which occurred when her hard drive failed, could stop her from her dreams of becoming a writer.

Now, H. B. lives in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to a city to not feel isolated. It's the perfect place to let her two kids run and explore their huge yard, teach them about the food chain as they create a garden, and debate building a chicken coop.

    I really enjoyed this book, it was a great summer read. It is very well written and will make you want to jump out of your seats while reading it. I loved Micha and his personality from the very beginning, he just made me want to love him even more with each page I read. Bent is addicting and you find it hard to put it down. You too will fall in love with Micah and rooting for Julia and his relationship to rein over the evil crazy one. I loved it and I can't wait for the sequel Breaking The Rules (late May release). Go out and get this book!!! Micha left Julia and knows he screwed up big time and needs to know find a way that he can fix what he messed and get back what he and Julia had once. I really liked this book its a great read and everybody will love it.

    First of all, this is a typical romance. I can promise while the book is well-written, it is not earth-shattering nor high intensity. I would call this a sweet romance with some profanity issues (not too major, thankfully) and some sex scenes (that aren't too detailed). This would be a book for adults that are past the young adult stage but not into middle age yet. Both characters are divorced, and there are plenty of references to high school and growing up in a small town.




    For most of the book, I was indeed charmed. Who couldn't love a small town and a resurgence of a high school romance. I didn't agree with the morals of the book, but I have read worse. I just wish that the author had given us more background on Julia's marriage and background. I felt that we knew a lot about Micah. Julia demands complete honesty of Micah, but it seems that she does not always demand the same thing from herself. But I guess that is human nature. We tend to pick on others' faults if we struggle with them, too.




    The romance between Micah and Julia was hot and heavy at times, sometimes humorous, but other times it was downright unbelievable. I wish there had been a lot more raw emotion in the book. Sometimes it seems that things are too nice and sweet in book such as these, but sugary sweet happy endings sometimes don't sit right with me. Could there really be a Micah? Caleb was probably my favorite and best-developed character, and I wish he had been a bigger part of the story.




    In short, this is a simple romance that will only take you a day or so to read, and it is perfect for a light reading. And you'll feel warm and fuzzy after reading it, so I would say the author accomplished her purpose.




    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
