Dwayne's life takes a turn for the better when he meets someone who is willing to take the time to love and understand him. A love affair that unfolds gently and sweetly leads to Dwayne's healing and future recovery. An absorbing and profound story, "Bent, Not Broken" exemplifies the power of love.
Bent, Not Broken from the author of Surviving the Fall
"Beauty in this Book about Real People"
"Gentle and moving. A book you don't want to end."
Meet Dwayne Johnson. A man whose life is all about order and rightness, cleanliness, and counting things with precision. Everything in its place and under control - by the numbers.
Well, that is, until Dee-Dee gifted Dwayne with a lover's kiss. Bent, Not Broken is a modern romance about an obsessive compulsive man who falls in love. Dee-Dee challenges Dwayne to experience life instead of hiding from it.
Nevertheless, Dwayne's disorder puts a severe strain on the relationship. Jealousy, low self-esteem and anxiety engulf him until he pushes his new love away and falls into old habits of avoidance. Will he overcome this dilemma for love? Or will his problems continue to impede his happiness?
"Bent, Not Broken brings to life a very complex character, Dwayne Johnson. This is a first-rate read and I look forward to reading more from William Potter." Highly Recommended/Must Read by author George Wilhite
"I found this book fascinating. The writing is clear and the characters are well-developed. I was hooked from the first line. I found myself cheering for Dwayne to get back on track with meds and treatment to control his OCD so he can enjoy more personal freedom, less anxiety, and have a relationship with a wonderful and understanding woman. This book is informative as well as enjoyable to read." Janet J for ReadersFavorite.com
"A love story that counts. This was a fast read, and it ended too soon. I can't remember the last book that left me feeling this hopeful." ARLockwood
"What a pleasure to read a book about real people, the sort you might meet on a trip to the grocery store or while riding a bus, which is where Dwayne and Dee-Dee first speak to each other. The author throws them together and lets things happen, and the raw, ugly reality doesn't take long taking over. This is a fine, gripping story, and this is good writing. I didn't know what to expect when the problems started multiplying between Dwayne and Dee-Dee. I knew it wouldn't be easy, just like life. The ending completely surprised me, and I ended up loving this book." Frederick Lee Brooke author of Doing Max Vinyl
