Hell Bent: A Young Adult Romance

Silky Oak Press

South Shore's bad-boy surfer Beau Huntington has a solid plan to get through life: one night stands, getting wasted, and walls so high no one can ever get in – it’s all about numbing the pain.

And his plan’s working just fine – until he meets Corrie Johnson. 

Corrie is smart, determined, and focused on an elite swimming scholarship. But she has a dark past of her own, and keeps her secrets closely guarded. She’s made promises to herself not to let history repeat — ever. But is there more to Beau than he’s letting on? And is it time to let herself feel again?

It's summer holidays and that’s when things begin to unravel. 

Because falling in love was never part of the plan.

It’s time for Beau to learn that the fight of his life doesn’t involve his fists.

Hell Bent is Karen Crompton’s debut novel.

Hell Bent is a story that matters — about life, love, and death.
It’s a story of how life can spiral out of control for those left behind. 
And it’s a story of hope…

About the author

 Karen Crompton writes from the heart. Hell Bent is a highly accomplished debut novel that explores both the joys of young love and the pain of loss. Her writing contains a raw honesty that can only have come from the deep personal understanding of tragically losing a loved one.

Having always had a great interest in Young Adult / New Adult films and literature, Karen says that having a book published — one that means so much to her personally — is a dream come true.

Karen was born and bred on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia, where she still lives with her husband Geoff, a family of wild possums, a pair of nosy King Parrots and one very loudmouthed Kookaburra.
