Blog Tour: Norma Jean by Amanda Heath!

Publication date: 7th April 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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 loved this book! It was my first book by Amanda Heath and I got only a taste of her writing skills! I got so much more than I bargained for with Norma Jean! I wasn't really sure about reading it after I read the synopsis but as soon as I started reading it I couldn't put it down! I thought that this book was going to be an adult book, but I soon discovered from the first chapter that it was a New Adult book! The plot of this book had so much in it! It was written over quite a long period of time and some years and months were missed out! I would love a novella to maybe what happened during some of the years or months that passed by in this book without us knowing much about what happened during that time as I think that it would be an amazing addition to thins amazing book! The plot also had so many twists and turns in it as well! I wasn't expecting some of the twists and turns so I was pretty excited about them! The characters were amazing! I felt so sorry for Norma Jean at the beginning of this book but I loved how she took revenge! The girl fought dirty! I connected with her instantly as well! I felt sorry for her throughout most of the book as well as you discover more about what she has been through! I loved how strong she was though through it all! Chance was the love interest of Norma Jean and I loved him as well! I loved how much he had grown up since the beginning of this book! When I got a glimmer of what he used to be like I felt myself comparing how much he had changed! There were quite a lot of other characters in this book and they were all amazing and brought so much to the story! I also loved that Norma Jean was written from Norma Jean and Chance's point of view as after you discover what Norma Jean went through you got to go inside Chance's head and see how he really felt about her! The ending of this book was beyond perfect! I found myself grinning like an idiot while reading it! After reading Norma Jean it has definitely motivated me to check out Amanda's other books! I have them on my Kindle but I am now even more motivated to finally read them! When I started reading this book I did think that the cover was maybe a little too sexy for the book but once I got to a certain stage I realised how much it actually suits the book and the character of Norma Jean! I really do love it! Big thank you to Amanda for a copy of Norma Jean and to Allison for having me on the Blog Tour!
