Misguided Heart by Amanda Bennett ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway
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?

The tension between us was palpable. My body was betraying me at every turn. I wanted to be angry with him. I wanted to scream at him and make him feel the way he had made me feel towards the end of it all. Instead, visions of the naughty things I knew he could do to me were flying around in my brain. His strong calloused hands and the way they used to tease and press hard inside of me. How is tongue would only have to graze the tip of my nipples to send me into a euphoric state. The way he used to push me up against the wall and…. Ah fuck! If I didn’t walk away now, bad things were going to happen. I could feel it, deep down. In that area to be more exact.
Misguided Heart was my first read by Amanda Bennett. I was anxious to read this book just from the cover and teasers alone, they were smoking hot!! I enjoyed the book and was engrossed in it from start to finish, cheering for Sloan and Aston's relationship to work out.
Aston is a beautiful and successful business woman. She has just landed her dream job at a huge publishing company that she has given up everything for.....while most of her friends are married with children, she is married to her job. Sloan is a self-professed playboy. He's sexy, rich, arrogant......oh and did I mention he is Aston's new boss. Yup, that's right Sloan's dad owns the company. There is an instant attraction between the two and Sloan decides he is gonna do anything he can to basically get in Aston's pants....she's his new challenge. They start a relationship and drive each other insane, sexually and mentally when they both start to fall for each other. They both constantly question what they really want and keep pulling away from each other because of their doubts. The question they have to ask is, can they let their past go and start over, or is their past going to hold them back from the amazing life they can have together?
I enjoyed this book. It was steamy, fun, and there were parts when my heart broke for both characters. I enjoyed that we got to see both Sloan and Aston's POV although I did at times feel like the story was repeating itself a little. I can't wait to read more from Amanda Bennett.
