From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated

Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story.

But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus
and maybe risking more

With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship
and their livesat risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.

He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out

Okidoki, do we all remember Rylee Donovan's brother Tanner?
Hm, I kinda didn't - but that's ok - I suffer from #BooksAlzheimers ☺ But I went back into the first #Driven books and typed Tanner into the search field ☺ Found him!!! And remembered him too!!!

This is his story!
And with this story, Ms Bromberg takes us on a bit of a Romantic Suspense trip for the first time. Also a first, the story is told from the male POV.

Tanner is working as a journalist - which in his case means, that he travels to dangerous places all over the world to bring the news to us. Working the Hard Beat. A foreign war correspondent. Dangerous jobs in dangerous places. That's where his ex-girlfriend and later best friend Stella died a few months ago.
And after he was kept home by his boss for a few months, he's finally back in the middle east.
But now that his photographer Stella isn't there anymore, he needs a new one.
Enter Beaux.
Or BJ as she prefers to be called.
She's his new photog. A Rookie! They sent him a rookie to babysit.
And a girl too! He knows firsthand how dangerous it is where he works.
But now she's here and she's smoking hot!
And he hates her.
But he wants her.
But he still hates her.... ☺☺☺
And she hates him too - but she wants him too - and she respects him, well, his work.
But she has secrets - we don't know what she's hiding, but Tanner knows that there's something....

Secrets, lust and a dangerous location....
Let the fun times begin!!!!!


 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺

OK, nooo there won't be a Cliffy of course ☺


We finally got another Bromberg!!!
And this time it's something a bit different.
We're not in Kansas, uhm, California anymore!
We're in Romantic Suspense Country ☺
But the love-story is just as amazing as the first 6 #Driven love-stories.
The way Tanner and BJ pretend to hate each other. Or not pretend  ...idiots. ☺
It's adorable to watch... to wait how and when they will finally realize that there are feelings involved - or getting involved.
And we're always hoping that whatever secrets she's keeping,  won't kill or destroy anything.

Hot journalist???? Yes please!!!

Strong, smart, talented, strong, but also vulnerable heroine!
Funny scenes, romantic scenes, sexy scenes, suspensy scenes, mystery!!!

Such an amazing book!

I loved every second of it.
And especially those little appearances of Colton and Rylee☺☺☺☺

 Dawson and I even cried a bit here and there...

Were there some things I didn't like? Hm - I loved the book - and especially Tanner - but the first 65% of the story were a bit slow. Nothing much happened, we're just in this hotel, have some sex, but nothing happens. But then everything happens. ☺
To be honest - this was the first book, where I didn't like the heroine at all. In most books, the heroine is my least favorite person.....but I don't hate her. But here .. no idea why exactly, but I didn't like her. I felt she didn't deserve to get Tanner. There were tiny glimpses of the real BJ here and there, when she was laughing, but most of the time - in the first 80% of the book, I didn't like her. But still....

was an amazingly sexy & adorable & suspensy & mysterious romance! You will soooo want your own sexy foreign war correspondent after reading it!

And now Ms. Bromberg - HURRY with the next book!!!!

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author K. Bromberg is that reserved woman sitting in the corner who has you all fooled about the wild child inside of her—the one she lets out every time her fingertips touch the computer keyboard.

K. lives in Southern California with her husband and three children. When she needs a break from the daily chaos of her life, you can most likely find her on the treadmill or with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good, saucy book.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Her debut novels, Driven, Fueled, and Crashed of The Driven Trilogy were well received and went on to become multi-platform bestsellers as well as landing on the New York Times and USA Today lists. Her other works include a short story, UnRaveled, and a companion piece to The Driven Trilogy titled Raced. She is currently working on three stand alone Driven novels, Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, and Hard Beat. She also plans to release a novel addressing the 10 year gap at the ending of Crashed...
