Review: Norma Jean by Amanda Heath

The night Chance Duncan drunkenly kissed me on his couch, I vowed my revenge. I finally had something over his head, something that would bring him to his knees. It only served him right. He bullied me for years and turned me into this messed up person I am now.

Though I didn’t know at the time he wasn’t that mean little boy anymore. He was almost a man and easily stole my breath away. I just wanted to make him fall in love with, then break his heart into a million pieces. Just the way mine was. Instead he put the pieces back together and I started to feel whole again.

Good things never last. He did what I was supposed to do. Broke my already fragile heart all over again. Betrayed and alone I fled my home town and started a new life where I wasn’t in the shadow of what I did.

Now he is back and trying to worm his way into my heart, again. Though he will never know it will always belong to him. He hurt me and I want nothing to do with him. Life has other plans. Doesn’t it always?

He doesn’t know though. Doesn’t know what I’m hiding or who I’m hiding from. I never thought I would see Chance again and I’m afraid that he’ll get hurt getting mixed up in my mess. Though he is right in the middle of it, without even knowing it. I have to find a way for us to get out, before somebody dies.

My name is Norma Jean and this isn’t a fairytale.

I bought this book because it came highly recommended from my girl Jessy over at BookEnd 2 BookEnd . I'll admit that I had my doubts when I began to read it. I thought that it was going to be another one of those annoying high school dramas with a whiney brat of a character. Woah was I wrong! Their high school romance only lasted for so long but damn it was hot! Norma Jean is nothing like the character I assumed she'd be. She is a feisty little firecracker! I wasn't sure how I felt about Chance at first because he seemed like a total douche bag. He did a complete turn around and he's a complete sweetheart! He's so passionate and true in his love for Norma Jean. Norma starts to fall for him, too, abandoning her plan to crush him....that is until an unfortunate turn of events. 

Fast forward a few years and Chance comes stumbling back into her life. If you thought their relationship was hot before, wait until you get here. I'm pretty sure I had to wipe the drool from my chin a few times. Norma has a few skeletons in her closet and shit WILL hit the fan! I can't even tell you the last time I read a contemporary romance with such suspense. Norma Jean will leave you hungry for more.
