REVIEW: Slow Burn (Driven #5) by K. Bromberg

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Driven series.

One Night. That's all it was supposed to be.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

4.5 City and Country Stars

What a rollercoaster of a journey... I have been in a somewhat of a Bromberg journey. I'm in love with Kristys writing ability. she holds me captive with her spirit and meanings behind the story. That although these ARE Epic love stories I just love the plots and they grip me to the edge of my seat!

Haddie lost her sister through the C word that destroyed her, and her most loved ones. This story was about her battle with dealing with that, the pain, the guilt and the love.

"I wish for time so I can make a thousand more wishes on my own."

Even though I felt for Haddie in every way possible and what she is and was going through, in past and present. How she deals with life period including how she isolated herself, and that does include the people around her. I fell more so for Becks, he made the book for me. I just felt my heart was breaking in two when reading his prospective, I could see through his eyes and completely and utterly felt devastated by his heart and how he opened himself right up. In ways they are chalk and cheese in that they ARE opposites. Opposites attract so they say?!!

Hearts and heels 

Hearts and heels or FEELS it should say....

Above all the characters were palpable, emotions strung high. I cried, I vented, I laughed, I loved. I also am in love with the journey that Kristy took me on and will forever be grateful for giving me the experience I have been through through Colton and now Becks. Seeing insight into Colton helping Becks to giving back what he got in Aces own books, made me love them even more. I love Brombergs feisty heroines, but I will say the only reason this is not a 5 star was purely because I did get annoyed with Haddie and I just wanted her to lean on Becks yet when she did Becks sure have his 110% and I'll forever be in love with his purity and unconditional love that's just HIM

This can be read as a Standalone but I will recommend to read The Driven series to have an understanding of the friendships between the group but it's not essential.

And just remember...

Read it!!!

SLOW BURN is a STANDALONE but is part of the Driven series yet and if you haven't read those we highly recommend them.
