Misguided Heart by Amanda Bennett Blog Tour and Giveaway

Misguided Heart by Amanda Bennett
Release Date: February 22, 2013
Cover Designed by Wicked By Design (Robin Harper)

What if with one choice you could change your whole life in a matter of seconds?

Aston Boyd has always put everything into her work. She has never needed anyone in her life and has survived on her own since she was 18, never looking back. When she gets her dream promotion and becomes the new editor at one of the biggest publishing houses in Arizona, she thinks she has finally figured it all out.

But, when Aston receives an invitation to her first love's wedding, she starts to re-evaluate just how much she has given up for her career.

With a mission in mind to try and win back the one she let go, she never took in to consideration that what she might need, or even want, could be right in front of her.

Will she be willing to put her heart out there to get back the life she could have had, or will she try for something new?

Sloan Holden is the quintessential bad boy trying to cover all that up with his good boy act. He has spent the last 9 years trying to prove to his over bearing father that he can change his ways, and one day run his publishing house. The only thing standing in his way is the slew of fast women and his wild lifestyle, which he just can't seem to give up. He doesn't do relationships and always vowed to stay single forever.

A lot can change when the one person you thought you would never fall for worms their way into your heart, but will the feelings be returned?

I couldn't help but be a voyeur to the little act being played out in front of me. I wanted to see how she would react to him. I needed more than anything to know if she spent her time thinking about me as much as I thought about her. As a bright smile hit her face, my heart literally plummeted to my toes. My eyes scanned the crowd for her so-called friends, but didn't see any of them on the dance floor. His hands wrapped tightly around her hips and my fingers tightened into fists.

I tried with all of my might, to look away but it wasn't happening. She was no longer facing me; her face was now merely inches in front of his. I prepared myself for the worst and downed the shot of Patron in front of me. The guy, whose name I think was Auggie, was quite a bit bigger than me. Not that I couldn't hold my own, I have been boxing since I was 10, but he was still pretty big in comparison. A little bit of liquid courage was called for when I hadn't fought for a woman in, well, forever it would seem.

The cover on this book is HOT! I was so excited to read it because of that, lol. Not to mention I have heard a lot of good things about Amanda Bennett's work. Misguided heart is steamy and sexy.

Aston is the one of the only ones in her friends that isn't married, settled down or with kids yet. She chose her career over any kind of love life and is happy where it got her. In my opinion, Aston needs to get laid (enter

Sloan's father owns the company that Aston works for, hence he is kind of her boss just like his father. He can;t stop looking at her once he finally notices her. He is used to getting what he wants, women don't tell him no....well that is woman that aren't Aston. At first she isnt sure what to think of Sloan, but then she finds herself spending more time with him and then invites him to attend a wedding with her, her ex-finaces wedding, hehehehe.

Aston and Sloan start to build a very hot relationship, but then it is snatched away. It seems they both kind of have commitment issues and trust issues but on different levels. They have to learn how to find a balance to make it.

I really enjoyed the overall story. I feel like I could have connected with the characters more, but other than that I dont have anything negative to say. If you are looking for a quick but steamy read, this is the book for you.
