Blog Tour: Hell Bent by Kathryn Kiden


Parties, graduation, and having the time of your life is what it’s supposed to be like when you turn eighteen, Unless you’re Isabelle Irons. For Izzy, her eighteenth birthday came with an apartment with her best friend, the stresses of running a recording company, and the biggest lie of her life. In one moment her very identity was stripped away. Everything she knew about herself was based on a lie, and those she trusted most were in fact, the keepers of that lie. 

For years Bennett Price been building up a persona. A false face to show to his fans and the world, but it’s time to shed the facade and reveal what lies beneath. When he finally takes the chance on making his life his own, the changes may bring him more than he bargained for. 

After a chance meeting in the most awkward of circumstances, on the worst night of her life, could they possibly find each other? 

Izzy may be hell bent on her own destruction, but Bennett is hell bent on making her his.

Hell Bent by Katheryn Kiden was a wild ride to read. Izzy has inherited her father’s business at a young age and feels like she has to prove to everyone that she deserves her position, and not just because of who her father is. And then in steps Bennett. He wants to leave his band and go solo, and for some reason wants Izzy to be the person he works with. The connections and sparks between the two of them fly almost immediately, but Izzy has skeletons in her closet and she is pushing herself more than humanly possible with “help”. Things fall apart and she needs to decide if she will allow Bennett to be there to help her pick up the pieces.

The book is emotionally charged and there were a lot of times when I didn’t like Izzy very much – even when I felt sorry for her. She’s selfish, somewhat egotistical, and maybe too independent; but at the same time, she is hurt and lost. Bennett is a strong man and loves her and will do whatever he can for her. Your typical hero with a crooked halo. He isn’t exactly perfect, however, together with Izzy, they are dynamic. I give Hell Bent 4.5 stars and recommend you pick it up today!

Hell Bent is the first book in the Rock Bottom Books series, and is a spinoff of the Save Me series. We meet the main heroine in the save me series when she was a child but now she is an adult and watch out because she has quite the story to tell. I have loved every book this author has written to date and this one was no different. I would give this book a 4.5 stars and would highly recommend to others. Even though this book is a new series and a standalone I would highly recommend meeting the gang from the beginning in the Save Me Series because you will see snippets of them in this book. I have always wondered if Izzy was going to finally get a story given all that she has been through and Katheryn Kiden delivered a beautiful passionate story that had me crying tears of sadness and joy. She also delivered some epic sexy scenes! 

Izzy is finally starting a life of her own but with shadows and lies from her past she will get a shaky start... When the sexy singer Bennett comes in to her life he will help her guide the way and also help himself figure out what he wants in life... Can these 2 have a life together?? Or will circumstances and situations keep them apart? Or are they Hell Bent to make it work???

Get to one clickin this fantastic story you don't want to miss it! I look forward to much more from this series and from this author! Thanks for giving us Izzy's well deserved journey and I was explicitly happy with the outcome.

Other Books by the Author:

Katheryn was born in Maine and raised in Maine. Growing up, she was the only girl out of five children. Out of four loving, but hard-assed, brothers she has been set on fire TWICE, shot at, left her with a burning car and a five gallon container of gas, scared out of her mind every time they got behind the wheel, and has enough hilarious stories and amazing memories to fill a million books. It made her independent and every female character she writes reflects strength and independence.

Katheryn books are full of page turning suspense, humor, and enough steam to overheat your e-reader.
