    ******************************* BOOK DETAILS: Bending Under Pressure by Lindsay Paige Publication date: January 27th 2016 Genres: Romance, Young Adult Blurb: Haley Summers is struggling. She’s in a new town with new teammates. She’s unsure if she likes her new stepdad. She doesn’t know why her father isn’t answering her calls and keeps bailing on her. The only thing she has going for her is a boy who is struggling just as much as she is. Keelan Moore is always feeling pressure. He wants to be a good kid for his adoptive parents while getting reacquainted with his birth mom and that part of his family. The only thing he has going for him is Haley and showing her just how fun her new home can be. Pressure is hitting them from all sides. Can they survive unscathed while bending under pressure? ************************* The story of Haley and Keelan was very sweet, both struggling with their own family issues. This is, of course, a Young Adult book, and since I’m more a NA/Adult Romance addict, I have to say I really liked the book and the writing. The way they deal with hurt, deception, the errors they make too, it’s quite realistic, and in the end, Haley just decide to go on with her life, letting a little window open if her father decides, who knows, to finally grow up and behave like a good father. And Keelan, the perfect, respectful and patient boyfriend, finally draw a line with Nahtalie, and decides whom he wants from his blood family in his life, letting to a little window open if one day Nathalie makes up her mind and accepts his decisions. In other words, those kids are growing up (better than some adults) :)
