{BOOK SPOTLIGHT & BLOGGER REVIEW} Commitment by Heather Dahlgren

Title: COMMITMENT (Changed Series Book 2)
Author: Heather Dahlgren 
Release Date: July 31, 2014

Maddie Duff had a horrible childhood - dreadful, vile, and appalling, thanks to her deranged mother. Maddie was forced into a life that made her believe that perfection and beauty were the most important things. She was taught that the only relationships worth having with men were those of a sexual nature; men were not worth the commitment. 

She leads a life of fun, carefree, emotionless sex with countless men. She lives with her best friends, Kenz and Becca, who she considers her only family. She also has an ongoing ‘friends with benefits’ thing with her friend and neighbor, Young. 

Tyler Young is hot, sexy and loves women. He is foul-mouthed, idiotic and hysterical. He lives with his best friends, Campbell and Dick. These three may bust each other; however, they have each other’s back in the blink of an eye. Young has his sights set on Maddie. They have an intense, mind-blowing time in the bedroom … Until he decides he wants more. 

Even though Young has Maddie feeling things she has never felt before, not to mention her panties on fire, when he suggests a relationship she takes off. Young is determined to make Maddie his, whatever the cost. He comes up with a plan that he believes will do just that. Make Maddie his … mind, body and soul. 

Can Young convince Maddie that he is worth breaking all her rules for? Will Maddie be able to let down her walls, forget what she believes, and let Young in? What happens when the past finally catches up with you and the truth is revealed? 


I enjoy reading the stories of this group of friends. This is the second book in the Changed series and it is all about the relationship between Maddie and Young.

This story circles around the premise of commitment (hence the title) and being able to change their ways of living. An idea that Maddie is against because of the way she was taught and brought up to be perfection and to carry her self where beauty was everything. Relationships were not to go any further other than of sexual encounters and that no one man should take up her personal time in an exclusive relationship.

Then come in Tyler Young. A man who was carefree, was not easily embarrassed, and who did not care about what people thought of him. Something about Maddie after that one night stand got him wanted to have more with this mysterious girl.

A story that will give you the feels of indecisions, wondering if they is something more than just sex, and to take a chance when the one that one special person you meet in life worth more than you least expected. A 4 stars must read on overcoming a pass that you cannot get away from.

Kenz hated high school.  Having no friends, no boyfriend, and worst of all being bullied—graduation was the only thing she looked forward to.  After graduation, she completely reinvents herself becoming the person she always wanted to be.  Someone different.  Changed.  When she gets to college, she easily makes friends, boyfriends, and loves life.  For once in her life, she adores the person she has become.

Enter Campbell Boyd —the attraction between them is instant.  He is sexy as hell.  Sweet, romantic, flirty.  He definitely knows how to treat a woman in and out of the bedroom.  

Once he has his sights set on Kenz, there is nothing that will stand in his way.  Or maybe there is something that could ruin it all?  One small detail that Kenz tries desperately to ignore—one that can only be swept under the rug for so long.    

What happens when the past and present collide and secrets are revealed?  Is it possible to forgive or will it destroy them both?  One thing’s for sure—things are going to change.

am 36 years old.  I am married to my high school sweet heart.  We have been married for almost 12 years and have 3 amazing kids.  I’m a stay at home mom and my kids definitely keep me busy.  I live at the Jersey Shore and love all there is to do here.  I love nature, birds especially.  I enjoy hiking and fishing with my family. 

I have always loved to write.  In high school I used to write stories, poems and a lot of love notes!  I absolutely love to read.  I love the way I can get lost in a book and forget about the world around me.  Now that I am writing books, I feel the same way, only it’s my book I’m getting lost in.  

As for now, I am loving this journey of becoming an author.  It has been more then I dreamed it would be.
