The Driven Trilogy

Synopsis

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.
Big moments.
Little moments.
And none of them are inconsequential.
Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs.
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
And none of them are insignificant.
Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

4 roses emotional romance + overall versatile writing

This is the third and final installment to the driven series and what an intense emotional roller-coaster of a ride.  This book leaves off right where the second one ended with a WOW of a Son of a – Cliffhanger doozy.  I felt everything very intensely, all the emotion, all the drama, all the angst, and all the love in every word written.  This couple shows how the healing power of love stands the test of all times.

“Relationships aren’t easy.  They’re hard and can be brutal at times… but those are the times you learn the most about yourself.  And when they’re right, they can be like coming home… finding the rest of your soul…”

4 heart-throbbing forever hearts couples in love.

Colton Donavan wakes up in the hospital after his near fatal crash in crippling pain and despair, his body isn’t functioning properly and his memories are few and far between, causing confusion in the edges of his subconscious and disjointed memories flicker through his mind.

Rylee is in near hysteria and numb from the soul from watching the horrific crash nearly take her lover, she is blaming herself for fighting and staying up late with him the night before the race.  She is having flashbacks about her own near fatal accident that took her ex-fiancée, Max and her babyher joy, and her hope.

Rylee nurses Colton back to life but it was not easy, she had the strength to fight, for him, for a relationship, for hope, for a future, for their love.  Colton struggled to heal himself, he fought for her love, and in the end he healed her to.

4 emotional teardrops.

Throughout the emotional turmoil and gut-wrenching drama their family and friends were there for them and their support brought unbridled tears to my eyes.  Beckett was a solid rock and the foundation of support for them throughout the story, always cheering them on, always pushing Colton to see more, feel more and be more for Rylee.  Colton’s father Andy had me in tears with his paternal love and his words will be forever etched in my mind:

“The first time I saw him, he broke my heart and stole it all with one, single look.”

“Hurting is feeling and feeling is living, and isn’t it good to be alive?” 

Colton finally opens up his vaulted secrets and lets all his nightmares come to fruition in his one chance at claiming and loving Rylee for his own.  We finally see what kind of emotional scars impact his soul and creates such heavy baggage he must carry throughout his life.  As he shares his past of atrocious acts with Rylee you can clearly see how amazing this heroine truly is.  Smart, strong, perceptive, and very understanding to Colton’s every need.  Sure they stumbled a bit or quite a lot, they were beaten down, built themselves back up and always, always fought for their love.

This is love.  Me and him, making it work.  One being strong when the other is weak.  Thinking of the other first when they know their partner is going to feel pain.

Colton: “You are most definitely the fucking saint I don’t deserve.”

Rylee:  “Every sinner needs a saint to balance them out.”

5 wham-bam, thank you, may I have another! scorching hot kisses Hot-deleicious sex scenes.

Wow this book did not scrimp on the scorching hot love scenes, they were emotional, sexy, mind-blowing, lip biting, and panty dropping Yum-O-scrumpcious!  This author knows how to write a sex scene.  They clearly connect the two characters with emotion in vivid detail.  It was also a very integral part of the storyline and used to enhance the chemistry between them and show the healing power of love they portray to one another and it only made them better, stronger and united them in a long lasting love.

Quotes:

The only reason to kick a man like him out of bed would be to fuck him on the floor.

Never look down on a man unless he’s between your legs.

Never disturb a man when he’s eating at the Y.

In closing this was a fantastic finale full of angst, hope, healing, tears, laughter, friendship, family, and most of all LOVE.  Colton and Rylee deserve their HEA and a love of all time.  This series will go down in history as a romance hall of famer.

Review – Fueled by K. Bromberg

The Driven Trilogy

by K. Bromberg

17880708[1]

Synopsis

What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

Colton stole my heart. He wasn’t supposed to, and I sure as hell didn’t want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. She’s seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she’s still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won’t let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there’s someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I’d never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I’ll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can’t be what she needs, so why can’t I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

5 romance roses!

This is the second book in the Driven Series and in this one we read more about the dark, heavy baggage Colton Donavan carries with him about his secretive tortured past.  We see the lines of communication between Colton and Rylee open up in small increments even as their love and lust grows by leaps and bounds.

“She pushes me, unmans me, consumes me, scares the ever-loving shit out of me.

You clearly see the push and pull feelings Colton continues to carry for Rylee as he struggles to fight against his dark memories and hold on to the one thing that keeps him sane and hopeful of a future with her.  To him the definition of the word Love means something totally different to him and the way he was raised to believe.

5  hearts – couples falling hard

Rylee is still the wonderful, selfless, giving, strong and tenacious beautiful woman she was in Driven.  You have to admire the way she never gives up in her fight for Colton’s love and the future she sees with him.  The way she gives herself whole heartedly to those in need and to those she believes in and loves, this is what makes me want to be a better person.

“Fight Colton!  For you.  For us.  For me.  You don’t get to pull away from me.  You don’t get to walk away without a second thought.  I matter, Colton.  I deserve the same more than you do.  What we have is not inconsequential.

5 hot-o-licious steamy sex scene lips.

And OMG!  Let me just say the Lust Scenes in this sexy sizzling romance were of the charts panty melting, drool dripping, heart thumping, lip smacking, scorching hot.  Honestly, I licked my lips so raw I had to find my extra stash of carmex just to get through them.  Colton is so very charming and dirty.  Ha!

5 tear-em-up tears.

The most favorite and memorable parts in this story were the little boys living in the group home Rylee create for them.   You get a glimpse into their lives and pasts and really start feeling the heartache a pain each one of them lived through.  You see how Colton relates to them and soothes their suffering with words of encouragement and shows them how to handle vivid memories and horrid dreams by sharing his own way of handling these atrocious acts.

Spiderman, Bateman, Superman, Ironman.

In the end you get an overall understanding to what drives us all to succeed in our lives.  The continued fight for what is right, to stand up for others and yourself, to believe in Love, to strive to be a better person, to open up communication lines, and the tenacity to achieve your goals.

Thank you K. Bromberg, by far my most favorite of the series!
