Norma Jean Blog Tour Review&Casting

The night Chance Duncan drunkenly kissed me on his couch, I vowed my revenge. I finally had something over his head, something that would bring him to his knees. It only served him right. He bullied me for years and turned me into this messed up person I am now.

Though I didn’t know at the time he wasn’t that mean little boy anymore. He was almost a man and easily stole my breath away. I just wanted to make him fall in love with, then break his heart into a million pieces. Just the way mine was. Instead he put the pieces back together and I started to feel whole again.

Good things never last. He did what I was supposed to do. Broke my already fragile heart all over again. Betrayed and alone I fled my home town and started a new life where I wasn’t in the shadow of what I did.

Now he is back and trying to worm his way into my heart, again. Though he will never know it will always belong to him. He hurt me and I want nothing to do with him. Life has other plans. Doesn’t it always?

He doesn’t know though. Doesn’t know what I’m hiding or who I’m hiding from. I never thought I would see Chance again and I’m afraid that he’ll get hurt getting mixed up in my mess. Though he is right in the middle of it, without even knowing it. I have to find a way for us to get out, before somebody dies.

My name is Norma Jean and this isn’t a fairytale

4.5 out of 5 stars

Gosh I love when a I get surprised by a book. I will happily admit I wanted to read this book solely from the cover, I never bothered to read the synopsis myself.  Now I don;t know if that made it better or not but I LOVE not knowing what to expect.  Norma Jean takes you on an emotional roller coaster  Your up your down your scared and frustrated your angry and hot!  There was only one point in the book where there just seemed to be sooo many people that I got a little confused, but the story OMG they story was HORRIFIC but in the best way. It was told so well the actual things that were suffered thru were awful.  Norma Jean is one hell of a strong woman and no one should have had to endure what she had to. Chance ( I loved his name & her name HUGE Marilyn fan) anywhoo Chance has always felt guilty for what he put Norma Jean through but she wouldn't even give him the time of day. He finds himself almost obsessed with her and then one drunken night EVERYTHING changes.
