 From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new story in her Everyday Heroes series

Control is something Desi Whitman abhors. Why live life in black and white perfection when you can messily color outside the lines?

But when she comes face to face with SWAT officer Reznor Mayne, he’s about to show her just how good control can feel.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Desi had a scary and very creepy experience a few weeks back. That's why she's now at the local highschool for their new Self-Defense Class.
Enter Reznor.
He's a SWAT agent from San Francisco. But he needed some time off from work. He thinks he made a mistake that cost lives. It wasn't his fault, but that doesn't make it any better.
He's Sunnyville's new self defense instructor!
Desi and Rez do not really start with the best impression of each other. BUT of course they start with mega sparks and attraction too.
And also ... he's her new next-door neighbor.
Let the fun times begin!

Aww, that was adorable!
A cute and sexy and funny little romance full of dogs and sexy neighbors and some PTSD problems. I really liked reading it.

It took me a few pages to get into the story. It started a bit ... weirdly written? No idea what I mean, but it got better and I finished reading it pretty fast!

CONTROL was a really adorable & funny & sexy novella! Too short, but I adored those two!
But just so you know ... Rez is MINE - so go run to your nearest amazon to get your own!!!

ARC received for an honest review

Waaah so good!  This 1001 Nights short story was the perfect thing to hold me over till the next full K. Bromberg story.

It took me a little bit to get into this story, but I think that was my frame of mind at the time of picking it up, nothing to do with the story.  And once I got going, I couldn't put this one down.

If you have read the previous Everyday Heroes series, you have met our leading lady Desi already - she's Em from Cuffed's best friend.

Desi and Rez do not start off on the best of terms, however they can't keep their thought off each other - nor their eyes and other bits 😋 

I was more than ready for Desi's story.  I knew it was going to be an interesting one, and Ms Bromberg has not disappointed.  

Full of laughter, tears,  great banter between our lovelies and between their friends, I really enjoyed Control.  

I can't wait to see what Ms Bromberg brings us next.



Men are on women.

Women are on women.

Grunts and groans fill the air.

There is cheering from the sidelines as bystanders watch them writhe and buck and try to get the other off them.

“It’s like a big orgy in here,” I say to the woman standing beside me. I don’t know her, but she’s standing like we are, back against the gym wall, eyes glued to the men and women fighting for positioning—moving, bucking, defending—on the mats where they’re lying.

She emits a nervous laugh and looks to me. Prim and proper, she resembles a Stepford wife, and all I can think is that her ladies’ club decided to do this together and she’s the only one who decided to show up.

At least I’m not the only one nervous about being here. There could be worse things I guess…like actually needing to use the skills I’m supposed to learn here in Sunnyville Self Defense Class to protect myself.

A group at the far side of the gym erupts in applause, and I stand on my tiptoes to see a woman standing with her foot on the instructor’s throat while he’s lying on the mat. His red SSDC T-shirt matches everyone else standing around trying to look official with a whistle and gym pants on.

“Exactly,” a deep rumble of a voice on the other side of me says.

I glance over and whoa…all my attention shifts from the grunts and groans on the floor to how I wouldn’t mind grunting and groaning with the man on his cell beside me. Our gazes meet for the briefest of seconds—chocolate-brown eyes giving me a passing glance and a curt smile before turning back to whoever is on the phone while watching the action beyond.

Taking my time and trying not to pay attention to HottieMcTotty, I scan the gym. Basic blue gymnastic mats cover the majority of the hardwood floors, basketball hoops hang from the lofty ceiling but have been drawn up, and championship banners hang, partially hiding the painted mural of the Sunnyville High School mascot on the wall at the far end.

But no matter how hard I try to not look back at him, that is where my attention lands. He’s a good six inches taller than I am, has dark hair, and his body beneath his Under Armour workout shirt hints at how ridiculously fit he is. His bicep closest to me stretches the fabric and is covered in a dizzying tattooed array of colors and images I can’t openly look at to decipher. You can only do so much with a sideways stare.

But his voice. It’s like liquid sex with a rasp and a rumble and a whole earth-shattering orgasm in between.

Hello to you, Mister A-Little-Rugged-And-Whole-Lot-Sexy.

I listen to him talk. Not stalkerish-like…well, maybe stalkerish-like, but damn if the background of grunting and groaning only serves to enhance the things my mind is dreaming up.

And then it hits me.

He’s not here as an instructor—no red SSDC shirt on. So that means he’s here as a boyfriend or a husband and therefore completely off limits.

Damn it.

If he were an instructor, I’d make sure to be in his group so he could grind on me for a bit…and I’m talking the pelvis kind of grind…if I’m being truthful.

Stalk Kristy on:

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
