    This was a short, sweet novella that you're bound to love. I really hope to see more Ryder and Janie in the near future, cause this was such a tease. There's nothing like a girl coming to her senses with a sexy, tattooed cowboy. Arc provided by author for honest opinions. This was a short, sweet novella that you're bound to love.

    Wow! I know it is a novella, but I was still surprised when I got to the end. Not surprised at the HEA ... but surprised that the story was already at the end when I got there. Brief heat was saved ‘til almost the very end. Despite the history, their tumble in the hay seemed so sudden! And over rather quickly! 😆 Correction: it was identified as a short story - so I really shouldn’t have been surprised by its brevity.

After going to college in the city for 4 years and living with a man she thought she loved, but found out she didn't when he had no use for her when she was no longer gainfully employed, Janie decided to go home to her Aunt's house in the country, and reassess her life. Since a young age like her mother, she had a plan and never strayed from it, that is how she lived. Going back home is the first thing she has done right in over four years, and as soon as she gets there, she can breathe again. Of course it helps that the crush of her young life, Ryder still lives next door and she still feels the same about him, and there is nothing better than a hot tattooed cowboy! This story left me hoping that there will be more of these two young people, Ryder and Janie! I loved this story and it left me wanting more of them! Great short story, and in true Tess Oliver fashion it draws you in from the first page, and does not release you until the end! I gave this short story 5***** stars!

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review** A Bend in the Road was a super quick, sweet romance about a girl finding her way back home. Janie had her carefully planned, controlled life suddenly fall apart and decided to return to her hometown in the country, spend some time with her aunt and uncle and figure out her future. Running into her old crush, Janie realized that her feelings for him were just as strong as they had been years ago.

Running into her old crush, Janie realized that her feelings for him were just as strong as they had been years ago. Ryder, the boy she had shared her first kiss with is now strong, muscular, tattooed and still able to get her hot with just one look. I loved the chemistry between these two and the fact that their connection was still strong after several years apart. I truly felt these two were made for each other and glad that they found their way back to one another.

    3 to 3 1/2 stars This was a short, sweet read. It had a rather quick ending that left me feeling like it needed just a bit more of the story to be fleshed out and told regarding these characters. I fully realize it's a short story/novella (which I often enjoy reading) and I went into it with that knowledge, but I've read some short stories/novellas that have felt complete while others don't quite get there for me even as I've liked them. That being said, I would definitely try something else from 3 to 3 1/2 stars This was a short, sweet read.

    Loved this sweet realistic novella. A sexy entertaining reminder that you can always go home. Never let the straight and narrow allow you to not enjoy the curves and bends in life. Flexibility and adaptation may prove to be the path that leads to a HOTT HOTT YUMMY answer. I sure would love to see more of this storyline and characters. A great read but definitely see the potential for a full length. Find a quiet place and loose yourself for a few minutes. AndreaGAH

    This was a quick and sweet read about Janie, whose life has had a bit of an upheaval, reconnecting with Ryder, her teenage crush. I liked the small town setting, and Ryder was a good guy. The ending was a little abrupt, I wish there had been just a bit more.

    This is a fantastic short story. Sometimes planning things out doesn't happen the way you want it to go, but then you realize, what you really need has been there in front of you all along.
