Release Blitz: A Beholden Heart by M.L. Steinbrunn

Title: A Beholden Heart
Author: M.L. Steinbrunn
Genre: YA/NA Romance
Release Date: January 15, 2016
Have you ever looked around at your life and thought to yourself, this can’t be what the universe had planned for me?
This thought enters my brain…Every. Single. Day.
I have no clue what I’m supposed to be doing, but this isn’t it.
I don’t want extraordinary. I’ve never wanted extraordinary. I just want normal…whatever that is.
When I enrolled in Middleton High School, I was just looking to find some resemblance to the typical high school experience.
Then I met Matt Rhodes. He lives the life of envy: popular, athletic, top of his class. Yet he wants none of it; he would gladly give it all up to gain back everything that he’s lost.
Together we will redefine normal.

*~*~*~*~*~ 5 STARS *~*~*~*~*~* 

There are books that you read in life and not matter what you will never ever forget them because they have such a huge impact on your life, heart, or emotions and this is definitely one of those books. This book is beautiful and beautifully written from start to finish. It left me speechless, smiling, and tears rolling down my face. Yes, grab tissues!

Gwen is one of the sweetest and most caring people I have ever read about. Life hasn’t been easy for Gwen. She has always been different because that’s the hand life dealt her. But instead of being sad and hating everything and everyone, she chooses to live her life to the fullest. When Gwen moves to a new town and new school with her grandmother, she has no idea that her whole life is about to change in the blink of an eye.

Matt is the popular kid in school. He only hangs around certain crowds and focuses all his attention on football. On the outside, Matt looks like he is living the perfect life but on the inside everything is a lie. When Gwen moves to town, he knows there is something interesting about this girl but he doesn’t know just how much she is going to change his whole life.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers but this book is amazing from start to finish. Both Matt and Gwen have their own struggles to overcome and they seek help in each other. I also love the secondary character Sam and Spencer and they also play a pretty big part in the story line. This book pulled on my heartstrings but in a good way. I love Matt, Gwen, and the gang and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

"This is my first book of 2016 and the bar has been set high indeed for those that follow. As I write this at 430AM with tears streaming down my face, I know that this book has taken my heart and changed it."- 5 Star Goodreads Review

My name is M.L. Steinbrunn and I am a young adult and contemporary romance author. My work includes the popular Redemption Series and a young adult series, which includes my new release, A Beholden Heart. 
In addition to writing, I work full-time as a high school educator and coach in rural Colorado where my husband and I are raising our four young children. Through education I have enjoyed guiding others on their paths and helping students build their own stories. After countless evenings of discussing story ideas, it was my husband who encouraged me to follow my own path of self-publishing.
I want to send a huge thank you to those who have been overwhelmingly supportive of this journey.
