Tour Stop Changed Review + Promo by Heather Dahlgren

Book Name: Changed
By: Heather Dahlgren
Release Date June 6th, 2014
Blog Tour Hosted By: Author Sandra Love

Kenz hated high school.  Having no friends, no boyfriend, and worst of all being bullied—graduation was the only thing she looked forward to.  After graduation, she completely reinvents herself becoming the person she always wanted to be.  Someone different.  Changed.  When she gets to college, she easily makes friends, boyfriends, and loves life.  For once in her life, she adores the person she has become.
Enter Campbell Boyd —the attraction between them is instant.  He is sexy as hell.  Sweet, romantic, flirty.  He definitely knows how to treat a woman in and out of the bedroom.   
Once he has his sights set on Kenz, there is nothing that will stand in his way.  Or maybe there is something that could ruin it all?  One small detail that Kenz tries desperately to ignore—one that can only be swept under the rug for so long.     
What happens when the past and present collide and secrets are revealed?  Is it possible to forgive or will it destroy them both?  One thing’s for sure—things are going to change.

You always were and always will be my girl.”

We all experience high school differently. Some are popular, others aren’t. Some are cheerleaders, others are simple students, set on having the shot at a good career, on the long run. Some are bullies, others are the bullied. Kenz Greene wasn’t popular. She wasn’t a cheerleader part of the ‘It’ group, clique. She also wasn’t a bully but the bullied. For four long years all she wanted was to be invisible so she wouldn’t be bullied and harassed by the high school jerks and assholes. All she wanted was to graduate. And she did. She finally got there and decided to get a total make-over. But not just a physical make-over but an emotional one too. She changed her entire personality because she thought she was bullied because she was weak. She didn’t stand up for herself, being afraid. She changed all that.
She met Campbell Boyd and the attraction was instant. She wouldn’t give the time of day to any guy but as soon as she saw Campbell in a bar, while out with her two best friends and roommates, boom, she was in lust. But Campbell was a major blast from the past she didn’t want or need, thinking she would turn back into her former self.
Now, the attraction I get, the chemistry but it seemed like things were moving a little bit fast for me. And no, I am not talking about sex but on an emotional level. I felt that the characters didn’t really get to know one another before having feelings for each other. But that’s just me. I couldn’t really connect with them but that was okay, I still liked the story, I liked the side characters, the best friends, the gang. We get glimpses of different things regarding these minor characters and it got me curious to get to know them more, hence why I will be reading the following books in the series.
It’s a fast read, it has funny scenes, hot ones – Campbell is a dirty talker – and I’m sure the things that didn’t do it for me are other people’s cup of tea. 3 ½ - 4 stars. 

***Copy given by author in exchange of honest review***

I am 36 years old.  I am married to my high school sweet heart.  We have been married for almost 12 years and have 3 amazing kids.  I’m a stay at home mom and my kids definitely keep me busy.  I live at the Jersey Shore and love all there is to do here.  I love nature, birds especially.  I enjoy hiking and fishing with my family. 
I have always loved to write.  In high school I used to write stories, poems and a lot of love notes!  I absolutely love to read.  I love the way I can get lost in a book and forget about the world around me.  Now that I am writing books, I feel the same way, only it’s my book I’m getting lost in.   
As for now, I am loving this journey of becoming an author.  It has been more then I dreamed it would be.   
You can always find me online.  I love social media, so please feel free to interact with me.
