About the Author

With the exception of three years spent in the middle of Nebraska, H. B. Heinzer has called southern Wisconsin home. Her first “official” writing was as a teenage guest contributor to an APAzine her father contributed to. In spite of her tender years, the other adult members voted her in.

Life intervened for a while, and writing fell by the wayside, but after her first daughter was born, she started a blog, More Than Moms, as a way to vent about her struggle to hold onto her own identity in the midst of motherhood. After that, not even the loss of her first attempt at a full-length novel, which occurred when her hard drive failed, could stop her from her dreams of becoming a writer.

Now, H. B. lives in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to a 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 create a garden, and debate building a chicken coop.

Bent is a book about love lost and the pitfalls and work necessary for love to be found again. It is a little slow to get into the real meat of the story, and I did get mild whiplash from the heroine's inability at the first to decide whether she was going to let bygones be bygones and be friends once again with her old flame from high school, or if she'd decided he was lying scum who could just stay away from her. The story could work with either attitude, but I finally just wished she would settle for one or the other and get on with it.

At first the characters interact more like new adults rather than people who are turning 30, but after several chapters, the action picks up and interactions smooth out and the book really grabbed me. The heroine is newly divorced and reluctantly returning to her roots to catch her breath and decide what direction she will go now that, for the first time, her life is her own. There are strong elements of chick-lit in that the book is about a heroine who realizes that all her life, she has never been making decisions only for herself, but always had family, college pressures, or a marriage partner affecting her view of herself and the goals she set for herself. Now she is free and ready to start living for herself.

The somewhat truth-challenged hero is her former love from high school who is living with the consequences of his bad decision making and inability to face it down which cost him the only woman he ever loved. Rather than admit that his actions while drunk resulted in an act of infidelity and an unplanned pregnancy, he told the woman he loved he could not commit to a long distance relationship and that they should part. Now that she is back, he is free, and he is determined to reclaim his love.

**ARC provided by author for an honest review**

When Julia left her hometown of Brooklyn 13 years ago, she left with a broken heart and a vow never to return. But life had other plans. When her marriage ends, she goes back home but only plans to stay along enough to get her life back in order. She never counted on reconnecting with Micah or the way he can still makes her feel.

The first night Micah sees Julia again he is floored. She is the last person he ever expected to see again. He quickly realizes he is going to have to come clean as to why he broke her heart all those years ago. He only hopes that she can somehow forgive him. He knows this is his one and only shot at having a second chance with her.

I have to admit, I was a little confused as to how after all these years, not one person had told Julia anything about Micah and what he was going through. The only think I could chalk it up to was the fact maybe they thought she didn't want to hear about him? And then when she did find out, she forgave him rather quickly. Like 3 days quickly, if you know what I mean (wink wink!).

Julia and Micah can't seem to stay away from one another. The more time they spend with each other, the harder it is to fight all those feelings that resurface. It brings to question, do you ever really get over your first love? And if presented with the opportunity to try again with them, would you?

As the story progresses, so does the relationship between Micah and Julia. But it all seems to be too much too fast for Her. And she gets spooked when he makes an off handed comment about parenthood. Julia makes the decision to run. But this time, Micah isn't letting her go without a fight. He had to let her go once and he knows he can't do it again.

I really, really disliked this book...

I especially hated how the H cheating on the h was completely minimized. The H of this story lied to the h about the reason that he abandoned her. At the start of the story he tells her that the real reason for his abandonment was not because she was leaving for college but because he had cheated on her. The h is not angry, sad or even upset by this. Upon hearing the news, the h is indifferent to hearing that the love of her life had betrayed her in such a way then chosen the OW over the h. Then the H informs her that his child was a result of the cheating. This does get some reaction from her. She hated the H all of 12 hours before she is loving the H again and all is well. The infidelity is never an issue. Maybe it's just me but cheating on someone is a HUGE betrayal in a relationship and one that cannot just be swept under the rug. If an author is unable to successfully resolve the issue and create a story that shows the H and h rebuilding a relationship tackling the issues that such a betrayal would bring to people then they should not use this as a plot device. The author does little to deal with the cheating itself. Even when the OW goes into painful detail about the incident, the h still shows little anger or hurt over it. The h and H don't even revisit the issue to resolve the feelings that might have been caused by what the OW said. It was equally annoying to have the h "friend" also always take the H side. This character actually called the h selfish for thinking twice about not taking back a guy that cheated on her which resulted in another woman's child that she would have to raise. Alas, this character had nothing to fear because his infidelity was absolutely no issue for the h.
