Misguided Heart by Amanda Bennett

Misguided Heart Blog Tour Stop 


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?  


“Nice mouth! Well at least from what I can remember.”

Seriously? Was he seriously flirting with me now? Man this guy is either bi-polar or just really fucking good at getting what he wants.

“Can I help you Mr. Holden?

“Ah, so we're back to Mr. Holden, huh? Can't we just go back to you just calling me by my name and not my fathers?”

“Um, no sorry. I think it's safer to stick with Mr. Holden.”

“Well it probably is but you know, he is a married man.” He winked.

“Ha ha, very funny. How long have you been working on that one?”

“Oh Ms. Boyd I love our little bantering sessions lately. I have to say, they do make my day a little bit easier.”

Don't look at his eyes! Do not look at his eyes. You stupid bitch you're looking at his eyes. His eyes were more of a honey color today and just as mesmerizing as any other day. I wanted to run my tongue along his neck and chest, stopping at his nipples for just a minute and then continue on down his body. I wanted to take his long length into my-

First off I want to say that I enjoyed reading Misguided Heart. I really liked it. 

So getting off in the nitty gritty stuff. Ashton was no meek girl, she kicked ass and didn't let anyone come in her way when she worked so hard in achieving. Then she gets a wedding invitation of her first loves wedding with the girl she never really liked and everything she wanted crashed down on her. Made her feel that everyone is getting what she wanted. She wanted to settle down, get married and have kids but that didn't happen. 

When she first accepted the invitation she went there in the intention to show it doesn't effect her at all, than she saw the wedding she planned. Internal struggle starts. 

Coming to Solan, he is the hot, jerk and a big player. Never cared about anything, took what he wanted and moved on. He started to notice Ashton and than a whole lot. He decided than and there he wanted her and will not stop until after he gets what he has to have. 

They both have their own past demons to fight. Secrets that they kept hidden. Will Ashton goes back to her first love? Will Sloan get what he wants and leave her? Or will he find something he can't seem to let go?  

Overall I liked this story, I don't want to spoil much but I had to stop a few times in reading this because Ashton and Sloan got in my nerves a bit. They knew what they wanted but let everything else get entangle and get messy that you don't know what exactly you wanted. One thing I liked was when they messed up both of them hurt each other back, so it wasn't like there was one really hurt party. They both knew exactly where they are coming from. It is just that they didn't tell the truth and got hurt. Sloan was a little worser than her and Ashton need on really good shake. 

But than again, it is called Misguided. 

I did enjoy the book it's a standalone and has HEA. So I'm happy. ;) 

Want an enjoyable read with a flawed hot jerk and a messy badass girl than grab your copy.
