Izzy is a young girl who at age 18, graduates school and steps up to take over her father’s record label. She works herself to the bone to prove she can do the job and she’s not just the spoiled rich kid living off her deceased father's name. Then one night tragedy hits and her life starts to spiral out of control.
Bennett is the rock star that has it all, money, fans, fame and women. But this is not the life he wants! Bennett wants to be a country singer living a quiet normal life! To get that dream he decides to leave the rock scene and go with the well a known record label to shape his career. That is where Bennet meets Izzy!
Can an out of control teenager and a rocker who has everything to lose find their way? Can they help each other find their dreams? Both are “Hell Bent” to make it in this world but can they do so “their way” without their past mistakes getting in the way? Awesome book with lots of emotionally filled pages - this reader highly recommends.
Izzy is the kind of character that most will be able to relate to. The death of her father changed her life forever and left her seeking out self-destructive ways to make it through life. She’s a wild child who wears her heart on her sleeve and makes horrific decisions. One drunken mistake on her eighteenth birthday comes back to bite her in the ass, but as the story progresses, you watch her grow into the woman she was always meant to be. Izzy is literally an example of how you can pick yourself up from the ashes and learn to live life again after tragedy. Sure, she’s a multi-faceted character whose decision making will frustrate you at times, but as the story goes on, you’ll learn why she is the way she is.
Bennett really surprised me with his personality and actions. You would never think of a rock star being unhappy with fame, fortune, and the never-ending line of girls waiting for their fifteen minutes of fame, but he is. Bennett didn’t want to live the life of a rock star, but that’s the hand he dealt by his label. His band name made me snort every time I read it because who in their right mind would want to be in a band called Moist Wood. As the story progresses and Bennett’s true personality unfolds, you see how genuine and honest of a man he is. He’s done everything that has been asked of him regarding his old band, but it’s time he does something for himself. He takes what he wants, be damned of the consequences, and makes life the way he wants to live it, which does include Izzy. Most men would have run for the hills when faced with the hard work that is required to be in a relationship with her, but he stood his ground and showed her what it was truly like to love. Bennett is yet again another one of those book boyfriends that has sky rocketed into the top ten of my list.
Hell Bent may have been a walk on the wild side for Kiden, but for me, it only cements that this author could take any story that popped into her head and turn it into something wonderful and heart wrenching. It’s been two days since I finished this book and my heart is still lingering with Izzy and Bennett. I’m honestly starting to wonder if Kiden broke me for other rocker contemporary romance novels or other books in general because I haven’t been able to look at another book since I flicked the last page of Hell Bent.
Isabelle "Izzy" Irons is a mess, just turned 18, she should be happy starting out her adult life; she is anything but. Since her father died, every year she gets a video he recorded for her to watch on her birthdays. This year's video was a huge surprise for her which throws her into a downward spiral. Her night of trying to erase and forget everything doesn't help in the long run.
"Hey, birthday girl, the guy mutters, pulling his other hand away from his face and pinning me with his intense stare. There's something ridiculously familiar about him, but in my post-drunken haze, I can't put my finger on it. "Whatever got you to this point tonight, don't let it define you...."
Izzy's first professional meeting with Bennett Price is rocky. His cocky demeanor towards her and the fact that she is representing her firm, Iron Sound Records, makes you think he's anything but a nice guy, but Izzy holds her own with him.
"I was told that I would be meeting with a head of the label. Instead, they send, what, an intern? Assistant? You're like twelve; what the hell can you do for me?"
"No offense, Izzy, but you've probably been in this business for about half a minute, and I don't plan on putting my future in the hands of a teeny-bopper playing dress-up as a CEO because she doesn't have the talent to get up on stage."
At that point, I was thinking he's a total jerk, but OMG, I was so wrong. The spark ignites between these two as the story progresses and you can't help but fall in love with Bennett. He's trying to remake his career and in the life that is Izzy's emotional rollercoaster, Bennet is her rock.
As usual, without even actually trying, he makes me feel better. With one simple thought, he took all the stress that was starting to weigh me down by simply thinking about everything I had to do and tossed it out the window.
Without giving anymore of the story away, I will say that there are so many ups and downs, I was glued to my kindle. At times, my heart broke for Izzy, and for Bennett on how Izzy dealt with her circumstances which involved him. She had so many struggles in her life and just when things were going well, something else pops up that derailed her. The book is written in dual POV's from both Bennett and Izzy. While I found Izzy to be an emotional train-wreck and rightfully so, Bennett was a grounding force.
I loved all these secondary characters as well. It is a well written story, the characters were solid and lovable. I highly recommend this story, you won't be disappointed! I look forward to more stories from this talented author.
"...Let yourself feel something other than pain. If you get your heart broken down the road, you get your heart broken. But you deserve to be happy. Someone should be. You've already let him in, let him love you too."
