Book Spotlight: Bent by 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?

This is a sweet romance story about two people that found love at a young age and due to stupid decisions that love ended in heartbreak, only to rekindle years later. Julia had her heart broken by her high school sweetheart before she left for college, but the reason for her heartbreak was all a lie. Now years later she is moving back home to start over and find herself only to come face to face with Micah, the man who ripped her heart out as a teenager, the man she never got over and what she finds out rocks her to her core.

After all these years Micah still wants Julia, she is the only woman he has ever loved and he will do anything to win back her heart and make her trust him again. As Julia tries to let Micah back into her life, his past starts to haunt them both and Julia's life is threatened. I thought this was a sweet love story and I love the relationship between Julia and Caleb (Micah's 12 year old). These are down to earth characters with a hometown feel. It's an easy read that will keep you on your toes and I highly recommend it to anyone.

About the Author:
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.
