Bent by H.B. Heinzer Spotlight

Book: Bent
Author: H.B. Heinzer

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 Review
I think I just fell in love with Micah! Yep I did! I loved this book. Julia has returned to her small hometown and she is determined to get her life back on track and she has a dream that she just needs a plan to get to it. She is a little stubborn and she made me want to slap her some times and want to shake her until she understood that everyone makes mistakes even her. She had a great man that loves her and she needs to wake up and see what is in front of her. Micah is sexy, sweet, a wonderful dad, and sorry for the biggest mistake he ever made. Then you have Adam, Julia's little brother who is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Julia from getting hurt. Adam is a secondary character but I kinda had a soft spot for him with how he treated Julia and wanted to protect her from everything. It was just a wonderful love story that had you laughing, crying, and screaming WTF in spots. It is a second chance story and just a great read and there is a sneak peek into the next book in the series which has more of Adam in it that was good too. HB Heinzer has become one of my favorite authors and I can't wait for more of her work.
Author Bio:
With the exception of three years spent in the middle of Nebraska, H.B. Heinzer has called southern Wisconsin home. During that time in Nebraska, she imagined one of her favorite authors living on the far western edge of the county, just south of the highway. At the time, becoming a novelist was a distant dream for her. Now, she is the author living in that location. Ironically, she later found out that same favorite author lives just outside the town HB lived in for the first eighteen years of her life.
Now, HB lives in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to the 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 prepare their first-ever garden and debate building a chicken coop. It's one of those dreams that is only possible thanks to the amazing opportunities that have come through writing.
