I decided that I am going to start reviewing trilogy book together. At least the ones that are out in the trilogy. Which is why I am reviewing Driven and Fueled by K. Bromberg together. Links to buy books will be listed at the end of the blog. But first the synopsis for Driven!
Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…
I am the exception to the rule.
In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.
Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.
I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?
Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?
Let me just say this first...OMG Colton is one HOT alpha male! Mix that in with his love of racing and his dark past, and you have a Christian Grey worthy male. Rylee certainly has enough problems trying to keep him at bay. She thinks that she can not let another man into her heart after what happened to her two years before. It doesn't matter that when she meets Colton she has an automatic electric attraction to a man that she has never felt before. It only matters that she realizes that he was the one she heard in the hallway at a benefit getting it on with another woman. Fearing that all he wants is another conquest, she walks away from him not knowing that he is about to turn her world upside down. And this book is a great book about the beginning of their story.
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?
This book starts off right where Driven left off. It is told from mostly Rylee's point of view, but also has some of Colton's point of view in it as well. It goes further into Colton's background and Rylee is determined to be there for him when he finally decides to let someone in. This book is filled with a lot of drama from Colton's past "arrangements" as well as more drama from his childhood friend Tawny. Colton realizes how deep his feelings run for Rylee and he is trying to figure out how he can deal with it. My only problem with this book is the ending...MAJOR cliffhanger!!! I hate that I have to wait so long for the next book to come out.
