Review: Bent by H.B. Heinzer

Description and Image from
Book provided by author in exchange for my honest review.

If there’s one thing Julia Wilson has learned in life, it’s that you can’t push your own dreams to the background for anyone. Newly divorced, Julia returns to the hometown she once swore would never see her again. Her plan is simple; enjoy the cheap rent her friend is offering and stay just long enough to develop a plan to make her own dreams come true. 

It doesn’t take long before Julia realizes she’s made a big mistake. 

Micah Anderson came closer to breaking Julia than anyone else ever had. After promising her forever, he broke her heart the week 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 not possible to hide a twelve year old child when you live in a town of 5,000 people. 

Is following your dreams worth it if it means giving up on a second chance with her first love? Is trying to make a relationship work worth it if his past becomes a threat to her safety?

My Thoughts:

This book was quite a roller coaster ride.  I loved all the characters in this story and couldn't help but hurt for them when things got rough.  I even had sympathy for the "villain" in the story.  Julia's reactions to most of the situations were realistic and I could see where she was coming from.  While some might get frustrated with her need to do things for herself, I completely empathized.  You can't help but fall in love with Micah and admire his decision to be a good father.  In a day when so many men throw their children away it was refreshing to read about one who put his child first.  There were some editing issues through out the book but nothing that took away from the story.  There is some sexual content and language.  I recommend this read for 17 yrs. and older.
