Book Spotlight: Come Back to Texas (Twelve Beats In A Bar #1) by K.K. Hendin

Come Back To Texas (Twelve Beats In A Bar, Book 1)
Come Back to Texas (Twelve Beats In A Bar #1) by K.K. Hendin
Publication Date: August 18th 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Everyone thought we’d be the ones who made it through high school. The ones who’d get married and stay married forever. The example of how young love can work.

We thought so, too.

Too bad life had other plans.

It’s been three years since Hayley and Nate broke each other’s hearts. Three years, and a lot has changed. Hayley’s a freshman in Bushwick University, and the only things keeping her sane are stress baking, and her a cappella group, Twelve Beats in a Bar.

Nate’s a Marine, stationed in Afghanistan. The only thing that’s keeping him sane is the last picture he has of him and Hayley, and the hope that maybe when the hell of deployment is over, he can find her again and apologize.

One explosion will change everything.

When a bomb kills all of Nate’s unit, leaving him missing a leg and eyesight in one eye, he’s sent back home to Texas. Texas, where he loved Hayley more than he could possibly imagine ever loving anyone else.

With seemingly endless amounts of free time and needing something to distract himself, Nate starts making YouTube videos, imploring Hayley to come back to him, and come back to Texas.

Hayley’s life is wrapped around the Beats, making sure she doesn’t flunk out of biology class, and babysitting Ohio’s smallest monster, Brandon. She doesn't want to admit it, but she misses Nate more than anything.

It’s too bad she doesn’t know just how much he misses her, too…

About The Author~
KK Hendin's real life ambition is to become a pink fluffy unicorn who dances with rainbows. But the schooling for that is all sorts of complicated, so until that gets sorted out, she'll just write. Preferably things with angst and love. And things that require chocolate.
She spends way too much time on Twitter (@kkhendin), and rambles on occasion over at
Thanks to Giselle from Xpresso Book Tours and Mrs. Hendin the author I was a sent a copy to review (like all the books I spotlight are books sent from authors). I started Come Back to Texas and I'm enjoying it, it's definitely hooking. Just wished I could get out of my reading funk (started so many books but haven't finished any), I'm sure if I sit down with this one it'll definitely help me escape.
I was drawn to it mostly because of the military aspect (of course ;)) but lately I've been drawn and devouring New Adult Contemporaries so I can't wait for this one to suck me in! I'm hoping to finish it before the holiday's suck my time away, so if you're interested to see what I have to say (I'm liking it so far) then keep a look out!
Thanks for stopping by!
