New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, standalone romance

and a new hero to steal your heart . . .


The contract with Major League Soccer was supposed to help repair my damaged reputation.


Then I discovered that I'd made a deal with the devil: the player I'm supposed to recruit is none

other than the bad boy, star Premier League footballer, Rush McKenzie.


British. Tattooed. Sexy. A man currently at the center of a huge scandal.


The goal? To convince him to stay in the States.


But what's wrong with a little fun in the meantime? No strings. No sweet nothings. Just a way

to pass the time while we're both struggling to prove our true selves to the world.

If someone found out our relationship was anything more than professional, it would only serve

to prove all our critics right.



I never should have agreed to take the fall.


But I did and I'm a man of my word.


Even if it means risking everything I've worked for.


The only bright side is Lennox Kincade.


Gorgeous. Defiant. Rumor-tainted. Totally off-limits.


Sharing a house with the gorgeous sports agent should have been a fun distraction from the

turmoil. Someone to help pass the time while the tensions back home die down.


But what started as nothing, ends up as something I never saw coming.

Kincade Sports Managment.
That's widowed dad-boss Kenyon Kincade and his four daughters.
Second daughter to fight for her happily ever after in love and job is Lennox.
She feels that her family and the professional world of sports is not really taking her seriously. But she'll show them!
Enter Rush. He's being wrongly accused of sleeping with a team mate's wife and he's hiding in Los Angeles - in the same house Lennox is hiding/visiting her buddy Johnny.
Insta sparks and attraction!
Not knowing that their new temporary jobs will bring them even closer together.




Cute. Soccery. Sports-agent-ish.
I really enjoyed reading this.

 It was constant sparks and flirting and falling in love from that first naked meet cute. Adorable!
We also get some very heartbreaking moments from the past.
But the story was also a tiny bit insta for my tastes. I didn't even have time to feel much of anything between them before they're halfway in love. It was a bit weird. It was like I missed something after they met. And while I think it was all a bit fast ... the book could've also been a tiny bit shorter and nothing would have been missing. There's a bit too much back and forth. Yes, we know that you don't want anything serious, but we also know that we'll get that happy end - so just hurry up already! ☺ I said that about the first book too. So that's just a brombergish thing! LOL.
But it was a really fun and sexy and emotional sports romance!
I especially loved the Rush-Meets-His-Fans moments. Adorbs!
And those sad scenes from the past. Heartbreaking.

Can't wait to read the next two books!
And I also wouldn't mind seeing a girl-power Jerry McGuire kind of sports-rom-com series on Netflix one day! ☺


Book #1

...if you haven't read any of Kristy's #Driven books yet - start with the first one NOW!!!!

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 also published a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
