“Drake isn’t just someone I love, he’s the one I love the most in this world. He’s my best friend, my breath, my everything. I realize in this moment that the true reason I’m on this journey to find Drake is not just because I miss him and want him back, I’m also missing a huge part of me. Until we’re together again, my life isn’t complete. Without him I’m not whole.” - Morgan

“… I’m so sorry I couldn’t go to you. It was nearly impossible not to but Morgan we wouldn’t be standing here right now if I had. You found me Baby. When you met me on your first day at Baylor what seems like a lifetime ago you found me. Only this time I’m not letting you go.” - Drake

Struggling to get her life back on track after being left suddenly and inexplicably by (secret) boyfriend –not- boyfriend and boss Drake Baylor Jr., Morgan Lane searches the globe to find Drake knowing that the only way to truly live the life she’s worked so hard for is with him by her side.

Banished to Zurich, Switzerland by his father after being caught Breaking the Rules, Drake has nine months to get the European Division of Baylor Industries back on track. Again, he must obey the rules so that he can hopefully return to his life with Morgan and take the helm of Baylor Industries.

Everything is going according to plan as usual for Adrian Thompson who has just gotten Drake banished to Switzerland as part of his plan to get Morgan (his college sweetheart and hopefully future trophy wife) back in his life for good. With a little help from Lana Lane, Morgan’s mother, Adrian is hoping to have Morgan wearing his ring by New Year’s Eve.

After a few months of being wooed by old flame and now boss Adrian, and without so much as a word from Drake, Morgan hesitantly accepts Adrian’s invitation to join him for New Year’s Eve in St.Moritz Switzerland. Foiling Adrian’s plan, a “chance encounter” finds Morgan back in Drake’s arms.

Will Drake and Morgan be able to overcome the distance and time that is now between them along with a few of the hurdles that life has thrown their way? Morgan and Drake are once again faced with figuring out how to start their new future together- this time not Breaking the Rules, only Bending them.

My thoughts about Bending the Rules ~~

I just finished reading the first book in this series, Breaking the Rules, right before I started this one, Bending the Rules. I loved that I was able to just continue with this great story and see how Drake and Morgan could go from breaking the rules to bending the rules. I enjoyed the first book a whole lot but honestly, I think I liked the second one better. 

In Bending the Rules, the characters are developed a lot more and we get to see more of the personalities of the main characters as well as those of the supporting characters. The story seemed more real to me and I felt like I got to know the characters better. 

The relationship between Morgan and Amanda is developed more and we get to see how much they mean to each other and how much they rely on each other. 
'I love that I can always count on her to be there for me. I may not have a lot of people in my life that I keep close to me, but Amanda is not only my very best friend, she's like a sister to me. I don't know what I'd do without her.'
All of the characters grow and mature in their friendships and relationships. I enjoyed getting to know them all a little bit more in this second book. There will be a third book in this series and I am excited to see where that book takes me as the reader but also what direction the lives of the characters will go.

And... we get to globe trot along with Morgan and Drake. Let's see, we go to Zurich, Vegas, London, Rome, Paris ..... It's all wonderful!
