Bend Don't break By Haley Rhoades


When lust meets fate, the seven deadly sins await.It's a living, breathing beast, churning tumultuously within me. It never rests; it shows its head daily as I encounter ghosts from the life I wanted but was ripped away from me.When Schuyler meets Calvin, she must find a way to carve a different future out or give up on her chosen career path and family goals. Is his love enough for her to take a chance?

Haley Rhoades’s writing is another bucket-list item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler and skydiving. As she continues to write romance and young adult books, she plans to complete her remaining bucket-list items, including ghost-hunting, storm-chasing, and bungee jumping. She is a Netflix-binging, Converse-wearing, avidly-reading, traveling geek.
A team player, Haley thrived as her spouse’s career moved the family of four eight times to three states. One move occurred eleven days after a C-section. Now with two adult sons, Haley copes with her newly emptied nest by writing and spoiling Nala, her Pomsky. A fly on the wall might laugh as she talks aloud to her fur-baby all day long.
Haley’s under five-foot, fun-size stature houses a full-size attitude. Her uber-competitiveness in all things entertains, frustrates, and challenges family and friends. Not one to shy away from a dare, she faces the consequences of a lost bet no matter the humiliation. Her fierce loyalty extends from family to friends, to sports teams.
Haley’s guilty pleasures are Lifetime and Hallmark movies. Her other loves include all things peanut butter, Star Wars, mathematics, and travel. Past day jobs vary tremendously from an elementary special-education para-professional, to a YMCA sports director, to a retail store accounting department, and finally a high school mathematics teacher.
Haley resides with her husband and fur-baby in the Des Moines area. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers.

My Thoughts...
What an emotional read, so many ups and downs that you can't put the book down. This was my first book by Rhoades and I can't wait to read the next few that I have on my to be read shelf right away.
I gave this book 4 stars and I think it's going to be one that you will enjoy. So grab your copy and get cozy for the ride of your life.
