    1. This book to me is indescribable, just completely unforgettable really You know when you think heading into a good story that you have it all figured out That you know exactly what will transpire before you even read a word Well, that s how I felt with Around The Bend, however I was ridiculously wrong All of my pre conceived notions were way off the mark, I had no idea what was waiting for me within the chapters of this book The tale of Jessica and Myles is a heart breaking one, filled with crus [...]

    2. Around the Bend by Britney King is a 2014 Hot Banana Press publication I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Wow, this book was nothing at all like I expected it would be I have to be honest and say this is a really good book, but I will have to put on my critical thinking cap for this one because it will be difficult not to step on certain plot landmines that could give too much away I will also confess there are a few developments in the story I had a hard time wi [...]

    3. I loved this book by Britney king she wrote this story very well, it captured me straightaway I like this book as it has different emotions from the characters in the book it felt like I was there every step of the way feeling what they all felt, some things in the book I can relate especially to a partner that at the end I will not say what happened I could even imagine what they looked like and see the emotions and wanted to comfort them I am looking forward to her other books

    4. Received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review This book was very touching, I have not read a book like this ever and to say that I really truly fell in love with it The story was very different from what I m used to reading but I highly recommend it Very emotional at times, a lot happening in this story Too much heartbreak that s for sure I felt for Jessica because that poor woman went through so much in her life My heart broke for her, but she was such a good woman that she eas [...]

    5. Britney King you have stunned me yet again with your fantastic storytelling I feel as if you grabbed my heart and literally pulled it apart This story is so much than the synopsis tells you The storyline is one of the best I ve read Britney will take you on an emotional rollercoster She s gonna throw twists and turns at you that will leave you gasping Like the Bedrock series this book is going to stay on my kindle waiting for a re read I m so looking forward to seeing what else this author thro [...]

    6. DEBBIE S 4.5 STAR REVIEW Did you ever read a book and you think you have it all figured out and know just how it is going to end Yeah, I thought so too reading this book but let me tell you I was wrong This book took me on one h of an emotional journey that had me literally screaming at my kindle when I got to the end This story is raw and will eat at you for days after you finish reading it.This story is about Jess A woman that life seemed perfect until one night her world was turned upside dow [...]

    7. This book needs to come with a warning Highly emotional responses expected while reading this book Wow Where to even start Let s start with the cover To me, it s not great It s not terrible but it s just not a strong cover I would hate to think that people are bypassing this story due to their judgement So, if you are one of those who come from my camp, please don t be put off.Right off the bat we are thrust into the emotionally checked out Jessica I actually felt like I was in the room watching [...]

    8. Such lovely and intense material that needs to be readI can t say that this was something that I saw coming From what I could perceive from the blurb, I gathered that this woman had enough of putting a front and just decided to stick her middle finger in the air and let loose But its not even close to that, its about so much , definitely than what the main character paid for Obviously there was in store for Jessica Clemens, a wife and mother of two children with an inheritance to die for, or [...]

    9. It has been awhile since I have had a book literally take me by surprise like this one did It is not just a story of broken marriages and lost love, it is so much Jess thought she had it all a loving husband, two amazing children and they wanted for nothing that is until the day the accident changed it all Jess checked out on life and living after coming home from the accident, she would rather stay drugged and sedate then face what life had in store for her She had a nanny, butler and driver t [...]

    10. I had reservations about this book when I first started The situation seemed unreal and too heavy for me to deal with Those reservations quickly evaporated into a need to get to the next page and see what was happening with Jess Myles Myles has been hired to look after Jess when her husband leaves the country after an accident has left Jess a whole different person than the one he married The first encounter between Myles Jess comes in her barn when she s trying to kill herself The relationship [...]

    11. We meet our main character Jess when she feels her life is falling apart, and unfortunately, it pretty much is After a terrible car accident, she s experiencing problems with her husband Spencer who drops a pretty huge bomb on poor Jess early on in the book which left me open mouthed, saying he s whaaat , problems with drug and alcohol dependency, and issues with her two children Then along comes Myles, who takes on the sexy, authoritative role in her life, which turns out to be just what Jess n [...]

    12. I have read several of Britney King s books, and I must say this is one on my favorites It tells the story of a young woman Jessica who has gone through an awful life of abuse, drug addiction, and has gone so low she has finally reached the bottom It will make you cry I mean really cry But then Myles comes into her life and that s not the end of her story This book tells of her victory and recovery from the life and abuse she has known It s a great read, and I recommend it to the reading communi [...]

    13. 2.75 I really don t know how I feel about this book I m not sure I liked it much For than half way through, I didn t like any of the characters, and started to feel uncomfortable with the turn of events It felt like two books in one, two stories in one The first half was a mess and the second half seemed destined for happy ever after I feel weird for feeling this way, since the reviews are glowing, but I don t think this is one I would recommend to my friends.

    14. When Around the Bend was first released I started to notice some of my favorite bloggers raving about out it When I saw the announcement for the blog tour, I was going to be all over it I was so excited about this release But unfortunately do to my personal schedule I was not able to participate but Ms King was generous to offer a copy for an honest review I was not familiar with her Beyond Bedrock series but this book truly intrigued me I was not disappointed in the least and found this to be a [...]

    15. There are times when you read a book and days after you are sitting in your car and all you can think about is that book Well Around The Bend is that book You can t help but let your mind wonder about the relationship, the healing, the devastation d although you have a TON of thoughts and emotions pouring out of you, you know the story has ended I think that is what all Authors want from us as readers is to have a connection, a question an emotional attachment to the story Britney King always de [...]

    16. I was rather surprised with this book It isn t a long story, took me just a few hours to read but will stay with me for a very long time The author did a fabulous job at taking some of the rawest emotions and events and weaving them into a plot that will have the reader not only feeling the pain and joy but thinking about their own lives in the process The characters are not only well developed they tell the story themselves You will see what they think and feel while their actions might not alw [...]

    17. I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC in exchange for an honest review 5 Stars Sometimes people come into our live for reasons we may not understand at the time, but that these people end up changing the course of our lives forever and for the better And no matter how long they end up staying whether it s for a long time or a very brief period, these people matter, and that honoring them and what they stood for is the most important work of one s life.Wow This story left me feeling so many differe [...]

    18. My review ARCprovided4 stars slight spoilers I really love this cover.Wow, what this book did to me It took me on a roller coaster of emotions Money does not bring happiness After a severe accident Jessica Clemens mother of two, wife, and socialite spirals to the lowest point possible She can t take care of her children, she is absent in her marriage and doesn t go about her daily routines any She hits pills and bottles and becomes numb to it all After her husband Spencer packs up and takes an e [...]

    19. An ARC copy was provided in exchange for an honest review I don t even know where to start I felt so many different emotions reading this book I laughed my ass off at some points, got totally pissed in others, some pieces had me totally fanning myself, some had me just breathing deeply from all the love exhumed My favorite things OMG The Notes They had me laughing so loudly I Loved it Truly Myles being the smart ass he is I love it Smart and witty, that man.Oh, I absolutely loved Jonathan s jour [...]

    20. First, let me say don t judge a book by it s cover Bad idea with this book When I started reading it my first thoughts were that it was just going to be about a rich lady, Jess, who is addicted to drugs and alcohol, and it is But it is so much than that She is married to a man that spends time away from home than he does at home, and she has two children, a boy and a girl She has everything millions of dollars can buy including an unending supply of alcohol and pills Unfortunately she has a fe [...]

    21. First off I am going to try and write as much of a spoiler free review as possible I love Britney King and I was very lucky that I got to read this book early In the Bedrock Series we get a glimpse at Jessica so we know something is going on but the good thing even if you haven t read it this is a standalone book When the book starts Jessica and her husband Spencer were involved in an accident After the accident things went downhill from there Jessica had so many problems to deal with and I hone [...]

    22. What can I say about this book but WOW What drew me to Britney King s writing and keeps me coming back for is her ability to write about believable character and circumstances that we all face within our lives at one point or another Britney s writing is direct and tell it like it is she does not sugar coat situations and life nor the characters she creates Jessica and Myles are real people with history and baggage but you love them and you cheer for them Yes there are times that they make you [...]

    23. let me see how to put this in to words which I m not good v at to begin with and not give spoilers I hate when people do that at first I was unsure of this book just because it was so different then the books I normally read but I wanted different man did I get that this author has a true talent with taking a hard real life situation and making it nearly impossible to stop reading it until is done the first few chapters were kinda hard for me to be addicted too, but once the next of the story ki [...]

    24. I want to thank Britney for the amazing opportunity to read this book I can understand that it is a scary thing to have people read something you ve put so much work and part of yourself into but she does a beautiful job The characters are forced to deal with very difficult issues and situations and there is no tip toeing at all Sometimes the book is sweet Others it s raw and brutal I was frustrated with Jess so often sometimes I wanted to find her and just yell at her even though that s impossi [...]

    25. I was lucky enough to beta read for Britney King again and this newest book Around The Bend is a great book It is full of emotions that people deal with in normal families, love, regret, hope, grief, suspense, and most importantly self discovery Around The Bend will make you laugh, hold your breath for hope, and bring you to tears at certain points If you want a good read, this is it I can t wait for it to be released so I can reread it again, it was that good.I don t give spoilers away in my re [...]

    26. I was lucky enough to receive and Arc of this bookJess is fighting a battle with addiction as her whole life unravels around her, that is until Myles comes into her life and puts things into perspective with his authoritative and demanding personality Reminding her of what is important in life and making her feel once again There is Such raw emotion displayed in the words of this book Grab the Kleenex and pick up this book you won t be disappointed

    27. A lot of reviews here tell you about the characters, some of the things that are going on in this woman s life And I won t do that I will say that the description of the book set me up for a different story than the one that I read Maybe they were trying to make it sound mysterious It s a very bitter sweet story Someone else said this but I too was reminded A movie or a book that I have read or seen in the past That is not to detract from the writing in this book Very well done.

    28. Amazing I love this book It has truly changed how I look at my own struggle with sobriety I have also loved and lost And, with the murder of my husband, I have learned we all have an inner strength we may not know is even there Miss King has a gift of putting into words what, not only true love, but also heartbreak can bring Around the Bend is one of the best books I have ever read I highly recommend it to all who love a well written book
