 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.



“That ego of yours is going to be sore tomorrow.”
“Why’s that?” he asks.
“It’s working out right now, flexing its muscles and doing some heavy lifting.” It’s pretty damn hard to be sarcastic when the man still touching you is making you want to lean in and kiss those sexy lips of his and prove just how right he is.
And just how wrong you are.
A sheepish smile paints his lips. “Ah, but you like the muscles.”
I like a whole lot more than the muscles.
“Mmm.” It’s all I trust myself to say.
He leans in closer. I can feel his breath feather over my lips and the look in his eyes—one that says his interest is as strong as mine: hungry and aroused as hell—is enough to make every part of me want to step forward and into him.
But I don’t.
I want to.
But I also want to slow down whatever the hell this is.
“Hey, Desi,” he murmurs as he leans in close enough that both of our eyes flicker down to the other’s lips as we breathe the same air.
“You look gorgeous in that color.”
Oh sh*t.
I just swooned.
First flutters.
Now swooning.
Both are things I never do.
“Thank you.” My voice is barely audible when I finally swallow around the lump of desire clouding in my throat.
“For?” he asks, the rumble of his voice a seduction all in itself.
“For fixing my sprinklers.”
“And for the compliment.”
His tongue darts out to wet his lips. “No need to thank me.”
Time feels like it slows as we stand like this in the afternoon sunlight on my patio—me in a bright yellow sundress and him in mud-soaked jeans. The birds chirp above. My heart pounds in my ears. My nipples harden in anticipation.
Jesus, just kiss me already, will you?
Just as I get my synapses to fire and lean in and take the initiative myself, he takes a step back and says, “I need to take a shower.”
I draw in a shaky breath as his eyes remain on mine and their corners crease with his smile.
“It’s a good look for you though.” Nice recovery, Des. At least outwardly it is, because inside I’m kind of a wreck with more want than I care to admit to.
“I don’t need to have mud on me to get dirty.”
He winks, gives me one last once-over with eyes that relay every single thing they want to do to me, before he turns on his heel and heads in the direction of his house.

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.
