Julia fell down on her knees next to his lifeless body, her heart filling with dread as she
noticed the left side of his face was covered in blood. He had fallen off the motorbike,
hitting his temple on a sharp-edged rock. His head injury looked really, really bad.
“Michael?” she whispered softly, putting a trembling hand on his forehead. “Can you
Julia has been in love with Michael for years. He’s the hottest guy in school, and she
can’t believe her luck when they finally hit it off during Senior Prom. Her dream doesn’t
last, though: after a few dates, he callously dumps her out of the blue. Summer vacation starts with Julia feeling heart-broken and miserable.
But then she rescues Michael in the woods when he has a motorcycle accident in a
heavy thunderstorm. From that point onward, her life is turned upside down. Michael
has changed completely after the blow to the head that nearly killed him... and he wants
her back. But why is he so different? And will she be able to trust him this time around?
Can the boy who broke your heart ever win it back again..?

About the Author-
Jen Minkman (1978) was born in Holland, in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn. When she was 19, she moved between The Hague, Salzburg (Austria), Brussels (Belgium) and Cambridge (UK) to complete her studies in intercultural communication. She is currently a teacher of English, career counsellor and teenage coach at a secondary school in Voorburg, Holland. She tries to read at least 100 books a year (and write a few, too!). She is a published author in her own country, and translates her own books from Dutch into English for self-publication.
In her spare time, she plays the piano, the guitar and the violin. For every novel she writes, she creates a soundtrack.
'I have always been drawn to writing. My first book was a sci-fi novel at the age of eight, which I painstakingly typed out on my dad's typewriter and illustrated myself. Nowadays, I stick to poetry, paranormal romance, chicklit and/or fantasy. In my home country, I am the first-ever published writer of paranormal romance, and I will gradually make my books also available in English (seeing I have to re-write and translate the books myself, this will take some time!).
