#Review ~~ Bending The Rules by Mariah Dietz
It’s been too long, Mariah Dietz! So happy you surprised us with Bending the Rules but girl, you left us hanging!
From page one Raegan became someone I wanted to be friends with. She’s smart and driven and deserves all the love in the world. Growing up in the shadow of 2 siblings who could do no wrong is one hard plight and she’s doing it with grace and determination!
Lincoln, aka The President, is Raegan’s brother Paxton’s best friend. It’s been YEARS of silently having a crush on Lincoln and Raegan decides, no more. She’s now in college and is going to start a new chapter in her life – move on, find someone who will reciprocate the feelings because The President isn’t someone who will want what she wants.
Lincoln isn’t who we think he is…at times. He’s a bit wishy-washy at first with what he wants and what he wants from Raegan. Their interactions actually increase once she’s on campus. With a brother like Pax, who is super protective, Raegan isn’t able to branch out and meet someone to help her “forget” Lincoln.
The relationship between Lincoln and Raegan is full of ups and downs but we start to see them understand each other more, you become invested in both of their hopes and desires. There are some secrets that Lincoln isn’t sharing that I am so interested in learning about.
The cast of characters was fantastic in this book, I loved Arlo, and Caleb is someone I need to know more about (a bit of a mystery to me). Raegan’s bestie Poppy is a character I want to see more of and learn more about her and then there is Derek <—somethings up with him too!!
Mariah Dietz left us with one heck of a cliffy…I NEED MORE ASAP!

The best stories always do.
Our story sounds predictable.
Destined for failure.

smart, funny, and like many would guess,
heartbreak shines in his dark brown eyes
and is etched across his steel jaw.
a guaranteed draft pick,
and worst of all:
My brother’s best friend.
It’s a tale of unrequited love.
I tried not to like him.
I have an entire list of reasons.
Reasons that have become my rules for dating
Rules that he keeps bending
