Book: THAT GIRL
A Standalone Novel by HJ Bellus
Genre: New Adult/Sports Romance
This book is about That Girl…
The girl who leaves behind her past, including her name; runs away from home and vows to never let another identity claim her again. Broken dreams, an abusive step-dad and ugly memories from her childhood are the only shattered remnants that have the ability to haunt her.
With no money, an endless blank slate laying ahead of her and no hopes for the future, she sets out to survive at minimum wage jobs, moving from town to town, changing her name with each move, and never allowing glimpses of her past to threaten her empty future.
Average in every way, from her looks to her personality and even her style, there is not much to remember about her. When she abandons one town for another, she leaves behind her fake identity in the search of the next one, while leaving people asking themselves, “I wonder what ever became of that girl.”
This was her reality until Lincoln Wilks.
The number one defensive football player in Denver who finally names That Girl.

**RECEIVED THIS BOOK FOR EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW**
Wow, I just got done finishing That Girl and I was blown away, I was intrigued from the blurb, and I was more attached from the very beginning. The style of the story was a typical HJ BELLUS book, she’s a no holds bar type of chick and there’s nothing that is short in this story of that. I’m one to enjoy college romance, but this wasn’t your typical college romance, this was about a young 18 year old girl trying to find her way in the world. No named, and coasting from city to city trying to put the miles behind her- from a nasty childhood, she is trying to escape the demons that possess her every day. HJ Bellus takes you on That Girl’s journey, and ending in Fort Collins, meeting a typical college star football player, and having to deal with her past and wanting to create a new name for herself. Towards the end of the book, I was left speechless with what events that took place, let’s just say I would have smacked the crap out of my mother and almost gasped in the epilogue but knew in my heart there would be a HEA. What I like most about this book is that if you read the My Way series, you will notice some very familiar names that made me smile realizing what city they truly were near.. Perfect added touch. The other thing.. What was That Girls real name?? …. Maybe there will be more to find out….
What HJ Bellus does is create woman that overcome obstacles and makes them stronger, she doesn’t play victim of huge Alpha Male characters, she provides such strong woman in all of her novels, which are rare, and refreshing. Over all great story, great connection with the characters, and I wish everyone could find that “Lincoln” in their life, he made “Oakley” feel like the true princess she deserved. Just remember it’s just pizza.
