SERIES REVIEW: Driven, Fueled & Crashed by K. Bromberg

I've had a somewhat of a Cathartic reading experience these past couple of weeks reading this series has been what the doctor ordered for me. I fell 110% Hook Line and Sinker with Colton Freaking Donovan and his Girl Katy  woops I mean Rylee. So I'm doing a series review post instead of individual ones. I do understand this is an old series but for those who haven't read them like me then I will highly recomend reading this series and pushing them up the ladder. I am now kicking my bum for not reading them sooner! Anyway... I Buddy Read them with My Book Buddy Layla & we have incorporated some art and thoughts together. I will share a link on how to follow her at the end if you wish to. 

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?

OMG what a Ride.... I don't know why its taken me so long to read this series, I'm telling you if you haven't just like me then STOP EVERYTHING and meet ACE!!!!!

I'm not going to write a big review as planning to do a series review at the end, but here are some of my thoughts so far.

Sigh and swoon. what I have loved so far about this book is how Kristy has made palpable characters that give us feelings of realism. You literally feel and need to know what it's like to be THEM so much so you feel like your intruding in a way to there life. Except you can't help but keep watching it move forward, you can see it happened and know it's shifting yet you keep on because you see their souls unravel.

In this book/series we are dealing with an emotional back story, that tore my heart open NO JOKE. Spoke to me in volumes.

Dominating, sensual, endearing in ways because he doesn't quite see it for himself. Yet he is able to connect and help the people around him, he loves easily except he's hurting on the inside.

KICKASS heroine. Love her to bits, strong and giving at the same time.

I just love the writing and the message the story tells, the sex is HOT yet the story envelopes you.

Unputtadownable!! Period yeh kicking my ass for not reading this before...

Onto Fueled

That. Is. All

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+++++ Spiderman. Batman. Superman. Ironman. Superhero Stars.

What a whirlwind, I read last night till 2am bear in mind I worked till 7pm yesterday too but Colton Donovan is a hero that I just couldn't stand to NOT read any longer. Especially come the 70% I was hooked line and sinker into where it was going. If you EVER read my reviews and recommendations listen here, READ these books they are MASTERPIECES.

Fueled starts up as Driven finishes and in this instalment they are blanketing themselves in each other, and entwining who they are within each other. It is a ROLLARCOASTER OF EMOTIONS. I couldn't breathe, I Loved them, hated them, loved Ace, Hated him, was pissed at Rylee, then Felt for her. But in the end I just loved them both just be prepared for the emotions in this one, it takes root in your heart but in a very good way that's all I'm saying.

What I love about Ryle's is how she doesn't take any bullshit from ANYONE including Ace and how he handles his feelings. But ultimately how she handles the mammoth of attraction and jealousy that comes with him. Yet she knows how to be handled, and won't let others TREAT HER with anything but respect even though she has deep feelings for Colton SHE WILL NOT BE CRUMBLED.

I love how they balance each other and this story is as much about Rylee as it is about Colton Fucking Donovan. Yet he needs care and unconditional love. I just want-ed to hug him and make it all better, as here we have a boy as much as a MAN, an undercurrent plot that continued to pull at my heart in EVERYWAY

A SUPERHERO that is Colton Donovan
I CANNOT put into words how I feel like he has cemented himself and his Rylee into my heart because all in all I AM IN LOVE with them both. I think for the first time I truly love both of these characters, but especially Colton. He is a No 1 hero in sooo many ways, I think these sentences and picture pretty much sums up the kind of man he is.

A hero that needs love
A hero that needs to feel valued.
A hero that needs to feel cherished.
A hero needs to know that he's not alone.
A hero that needs to feel safe.
A hero that needs more than predictability.

I'd say ultimately Ace's vulnerability shines through on this one and you see into his heart and the depth of his soul; that as a reader you want to just grab hold of the pages and feel it ALL right along with him, and hold Rylee's hand to keep strong and keep going.

Onto Crashed>>>>> That. Is. All

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?

6 A to MotherFucking Z FEELING Stars******

Some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring relationships have shit to deal with, the hardest of hardships are the most beautiful meaningful reads. Here we have a gifted beautiful man, that is soooo swoon worthy that he needs compassion and unconditional love. He gets it in all directions even at points he doesn't see it for himself.

His Dad
A true hero, gosh the love and devotion he has for his boy will pull your heart and is bittersweet in that you will cry and smile at the same time. I'll be frank when I first met Andy in driven I didn't understand the kind of man he was, here here we have a beautiful father that loves his boy unconditionally, blood is NOT thicker than water here. He knows what buttons to press and he will deliver, he will protect, he will strive to heal him and put Colton above ALL else when his happiness means more to him than breathing. I say again SUPERHERO... The small gestures, the unconditional love. There should be a novella on him ALONE sigh he's as swoon worthy as Colton is.. #JustSaying.

This book to me was an epilogue of sorts because of the raw yet healing emotions THEY BOTH went through. I'd say it's a rollercoaster and will hit you for 6 at times but 'oh my' the beauty of the how they lean on each other was just so effortless. I'd though say this story was a book about possibilities and about gaining a future TOGETHER!!. This was a book about two people who let go of the grief, the hurt, the pain of their pasts and moving forward with FEELING their futures?!!.

Above all I have LOVED, ADORED EVERY DAMN Tear, laugh, emotion, friendship, raw intense Colton to devoted lover. To feisty Rylee who fought to the bitter end to a selfless soul who put all in front of herself. For those who haven't read this epic beautiful series you really need to try it.

Enjoy the Ride


This has been so much more than a book for me ... it actually was a special journey where I'd experienced so many emotions that my mind is spinning just trying to describe it. This book made me laugh, cry, swoon and most of all it made me FEEL. Kristy has put so much effort in the tiny details that it comes so easy to feel every ounce of emotion Rylee and Colton felt. It gets intense and very intimate in some parts that I felt as though I was peeking in their bedroom eavesdropping on their conversations.

This book truly has it all. It's a book about love, raw, unconditional strips you bare kind of love. It's about family, the one you choose for yourself, the one who stands for you even if you try to push away. It's about friendship the strong, life changing friendship. It's about broken souls, damaged souls trying to make their way through the darkness surrounding them. 

Kristy outdid herself in this one and I've read all of her books and this is her best work so far. The writing style is flawless, and the storyline just keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last paraghraph. She hadn't spared us one single moment, every second was charged with some emotion I would call this book Tilt-A-Whirl!

This book is so very well written and brilliantly put together that during this BR (which is a re-read for me) I have discovered emotions I never thought I would have felt. I didn't even feel them during my first read. This series is the best series out there for me. 

A true work of Art. 

Did you see the News about ACED? Anyone excited?? 

Rylee and Colton's ride continues...
One moment. Six years ago.
The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it's the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart.
Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it's slipping through my fingers?
How can one moment, when our world seemed so right, resurface and cause our perfect life to spiral out of control?
I can't lose her.
She's my checkered flag.

Releasing January 11, 2016
