"I fell in love with a girl last week. I didn't expect it, didn't even know what was happening to me until it was too late."

Naomi Knox is missing.
I don't even f*cking know whether she's dead or alive.
What I do know is that she's the air I need to breathe.
She's my redemption, an all consuming fire that burns in my blood.
And I'll do anything to find her. Anything. Even if it means the end for me.

& & &

Turner Campbell is searching.
But he has no f*cking clue what it is he's searching for.
There's darkness all around and enough secrets to choke.
There are angels, and there are devils. It's impossible to tell them apart.
Light needs to be shone on the truth, but there's no one left to hold the torch. The line between life and death is blurred, and the players are all thoroughly entrenched in the game. The question is: am I still one of them?

GET BENT EXCERPT:

"Get onstage with me. Music heals, Dax. Even the ugliest f*cking souls can take it in and heal a little. Play her songs, keep her alive." I swallow deep and lean on the drugs for support. Naomi. I can't even f*cking think past her name. It's just there in my head on a continuous loop. Her voice plays over and over again in my head, and I swear, when the wind blows, I can feel her body against mine. I squeeze my eyes shut and look down. I'm not usually this optimistic. But I've always been this stubborn.
"F*ck the fans," Dax says, and I glance back up at him. He looks hysterical now, but I can't blame him for that, so I just stand there and let him rant. My muscles clench and anger rides over and through me, demanding respect, begging me to put him down. But I can't. I can't bring anybody else down because I'm at the lowest point there is. There's nowhere else to go. "This isn't a circus. We're not here to satisfy their morbid curiosity. Lives were lost and destroyed, Turner. There are a thousand vultures swarming outside this bus, wanting to cut so deep into us that we bleed to death." Dax slaps his chest hard for emphasis, squeezing his fingers in their skeleton gloves so tight that his skin turns red. "And you want us to go onstage and play? Why? So every note can poison us a little more? So every strum of your fingers on her guitar can remind us that she's gone, and our life is gone, and the music," Dax laughs, but there's no joy there. Just f*cking pain and agony, enough to drown an army. "The music is dead, Turner."
I look up, into Dax's gray eyes, past the wave of dark hair he uses to hide behind like a security blanket, and I give him God's honest f*cking truth best as I know it.
"Music never dies, Dax. It revives and it soothes the soul. If you let this fall away, you let Naomi down, but the music will live on. The music will always live on."

Meet the Author

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.

Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.

Happy reading and carpe diem!

Thankfully this was less a cliff hanger than "Real Ugly" - still might have been better to wait and start reading only after the Final installment was available. Series' are so much more enjoyable when read back-to-back!

3/3.5 Scandulous Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll Stars!! "I'm making this pledge out of love, stupid or not, because without that, there ain't nothing in this world worth living for." Get Bent picks up exactly where Real Ugly left off. This hardcore nitty gritty story of Turner and Naomi's love/hate relationship is fascinating to read. You get sucked into their web of lies, deceit, and redemption. But the most intriguing part is the chemistry between Turner & Naomi. Their tumulteous relationship is unlike any other, and ultimately this is what keeps us at the edge of our seat. But this is more than your unconventional rock star romance book. This is so much more, its beyond the rock n roll, sex and drugs which is the main theme here but its also incorporates other elements such as Who dunnit mystery?, Along with the raw, intense relationship which consist of Turner & Naomi, we also get snippets of vulnerable moments. Naomi Knox has this....this something inside her that made me think of puppies and kitty cats. I want to kiss her face off and make babies with her, and she is the only damn woman on this earth that I would give the title of Mrs. Turner Campbell to. All in all, this is a fast paced, edge of your seat read, that will leave you wanting more of Turner & Naomi. Long live the King, & Queen of Rock n Roll.

C.M. Stunich Get Bent Hard Rock Roots #2 Compared to Real Ugly this book seemed a little tamer, but that could just be because I had completely got used to the writers style by the time I started reading it. This book was a complete surprise, and I had no idea where the story was leading, but was happy to go along for the ride and just went with it as Turner searched for Naomi. As with Real Ugly, I was completely engrossed from start to finish, and although this book ended in a much better place, I’m still looking forward to the next instalment and hopefully getting some answers about who is behind it all.

I don't know what it is about this author, but I like her raw writing style. You definately need to read real ugly first before this. I really like Turner...talk about redeeming oneself! Naomi is a strong female lead... refreshing. This series feels like real authentic rock & roll story & language, not like alot of the bubble gum, juvenile dialogue in a lot of the other r&r stories. Can't wait for the next book (hopefully a conclusion?)
