If you could sum up Bend in three words, what would they be?
Passionate, Realistic, Hopeful!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Bend?
There were more than one but here is the one that hurt me the most...
When Jay showed up in church and Mia was already hurting and beyond devastated and to see him standing there without any warning at all just made her grief hurt even more.
What about Bunny Warren and Matthew Holland ’s performance did you like?
I have never heard of these two before this book but they absolutely BLEW my mind away.
They were so so so great with their performance and did beyond amazing.
I even had to write to author directly and brag about how crazy good they were.
I loved the book and its story before and now I love it even more!!!
I have the desire to listen to it again this very instant:
Well done Bunny and Matthew.
I am going to check out their other works too and get on those as well.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
At one moment I caught myself smiling and feeling so at peace and in love with these beautiful characters and their personalities.
And my heart hurt too and I might have shed a tear or two at many moments in this remarkable story that touched my soul.
Any additional comments?
This is a good story, with true quality and it deserves to be read by many!
And if you love audiobooks you don't want to miss out on this one people!
It is just simply that good!

Jay and Mia are like two peas in a pod. I don't even have words for how much I loved this book and their story. We've all had friendships with the opposite sex that we always wonder "what if" there was more. What if she feels the same or he feels the same and wants more out of our friendship. It is difficult for guys and girls to be friends and not develop feelings over time and that is exactly what happens in Bend.
We follow Mia and Jay, best friends, both in the medical field and both holding secrets form one another for years. Until one night Mia decides she has to know the answer to her longing question, has he ever wanted to have sex with me? Their interactions are great, they are fun and flirty with each other after the initial knee jerk reaction to Mia's question Jay has. There are things in Jay's past he knows Mia must know, but his secret is forced to he unmasked before he's ready. These two best friends journey down a path together if a friend's with benefits arrangement that is bound to lead to more, or force them to bend and break apart.
The emotions in this and all the past of Jay's childhood come resurfacing and make for a very emotional read. Both characters are super strong people who know what they want. They just have to shuffle through to heartache, loss and past mistakes to find a way to move past it all and make their friendship survive.
I really enjoyed the narrated version of this too, having read it originally via Kindle.
