Synopsis
 
Calvin Parish They call me Hero. I defend. I protect. I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good. Doesn’t it?
That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession.
Cataline Ford I work hard. I play by the rules. I’m content. My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden. Doesn’t it?
One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once.
And just because you’re reading this doesn’t mean I survive him.



Excerpt 
Because I’m lost in my thoughts, I don’t hear Cataline enter the room. Her tight black dress cuts across her mid-thighs, and her cleavage teases from a plummeting neckline. She’s done her makeup for probably the second time since arriving at the mansion.
“What is this?” I ask, narrowing my eyes.
“What?”
Jasmine drifts under my nose as she walks away from me to her seat.
“I told you not to dress up for dinner.”
“I thought you’d like it,” she says, lowering herself gracefully into the chair. Her back is straight as a rod, and her fingers are laced. “You don’t?”
Norman decorates the table with food as I stare Cataline down. He clears his throat. “For dinner, we have—”
“Leave us.”
He pauses. Though my eyes are still fastened on Cataline, I know he’s watching me as he bows his head. “As you wish, sir.”
I stand and slowly walk the line of the long table. My footsteps echo through the hall, appropriately menacing. I’ve just come from a burning building but am back in my suit and tie to maintain appearances. And my ridiculous glasses, which I remove and toss aside. She’ll believe I’ve just returned from the office. When I’m standing over her, she tugs up the neckline of the dress and blinks at me. I resist smirking as she tucks hair behind her ear twice.
“Well,” she says, “aren’t we going to eat?”
“I’m going to eat.”
“I’m not?”
“As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one meal at this table, and it’s you.”
My ears pick up her slow swallow, my eyes the curl of her hands in her lap. “That sounds like a threat,” she says quietly.
I bend over, flatten one hand on the table and wrap the other around the arm of her chair. “It’s not. This is a threat: if you’re not naked and spread out on this table in two seconds, I’m going to spank you so hard, you won’t know up from down.”

Crashed ( The Driven Trilogy#3) By K Bromberg

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?

Review - Driven (The Driven Trilogy#1) Fueled (The Driven Trilogy #2) By K Bromberg


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?

My Review 

Debut Book

Wow, Wow, Wow for a Debut Book this is an outstanding read. 
Strap yourself in and prepare to be the observer. 

I read about this book on another blog and decided to give it a try.  And Boy was I glad. 

Rylee Thomas works For Corporate Care. A company that looks after children in the system.  Rylee is also trying to come to terms with some things from her past. The emotional walls that surround her are so high. Until She Falls literary in Colton Donavan's arms. 

Girls, You really, really give this book a read. It's hit my favourite list within a few pages of reading it. This book will drag you in and you will feel like you have done the laps on the track with your emotions. 

This book is K Bromberg's Debut book and what a Debut book this is. The style on which it is written and pace of this book has the feel of a seasoned writer. It feels like K Bromberg has been writing forever. 

I LOVED everything about this book, the cover, the story, the characters. There's nothing about this I didn't like. 

So, what can I tell you about this story.......

Rylee Thomas has a big heart where the kids she looks after come to. Her best friend Haddie has been through everything with her. 

Colton Donavan..... Ladies prepare yourself, we have THE ultimate  Book Boyfriend, a hot, hot, sexy alpha male. 

" I'm only going to ask this one time. Do you have a boyfriend? "
"Because I want to know who's standing in my way"
" Whose ass I have to kick before I make it official" 
"That you're mine" 

Colton has his own demon's. He has rules he follows, an arrangement with who ever he's with. And since he's meet Rylee everything he knows is about to get turned upside down. 

This Book is exceptional. Its fantastically written. It enthrals you from the beginning. It will pull every emotion from you. It simply is stunning. 

Girls, this is your warning, be prepared to lose a day. Once you start reading this you wont want to let go. Get the supplies - 
Lockable room
Earplugs
Fan
drinks/snacks

Also make sure you have Fueled (book2) ready to read because you are going to want to jump straight in to it. 

This book get 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments




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?

My Review

Ok, Book 2 was devoured. I cried, sighed, screamed the lot. This book gets you in its clamps and doesn't let go. 

The story of Rylee and Colton continues in this. Their chemistry is explosive and hot. 

We learn more about Colton's past in Fueled. We see more of the emotional struggles between him and Rylee. You feel like you are there with them. 

Usually there is a danger of the second book not being a good as the first, not so with Fueled. This book is just as exceptional as the first. 

There is not a lot I can tell you about this without the fear of ruining it for you. I will tell you this. We see a lot of the ex's of Colton's in this one. 


This book is Stunning, Amazing. Again you will need to devote the time to read this in one go. This isn't a book you can leave and come back to. This is a series you need to lap until you get to the Chequered Flag. 

This book gets 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments

Summery of Both Books 

K Bromberg has the talent and ability to capture everything you need from a book. This is the type of book/series that stays with you long after you have read them. I am still thinking about them days after I have read them. 

There is no pit stop with these books, not until the last lap. 




About The Author 


K. Bromberg is that reserved woman sitting in the corner that has you all fooled about the wild child inside of her--the one she lets out every time her fingertips touch the computer keyboard. She’s a wife, mom, child rustler, toy pick-er-upper, chauffer, resident web-slinger, LaLaloopsy watching, American Girl doll dressing multi-tasker of all things domestic and otherwise. She likes her diet cokes with rum, her music loud, and her pantry stocked with a cache of chocolate.

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.

Fueled is K. Bromberg’s second published novel and is the highly anticipated second book of “The Driven Trilogy.” Driven was her well-received debut novel and Book #1 of the series

Blog Tour - Dirty Little Lies By Clare James

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00005]
Title: Dirty Little Lies
Author: Clare James
Release Date: January 25, 2014
add-to-goodreads-button31
Synopsis
Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself.

As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps." 

Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex. 

Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.)

What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions. 

Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.  

Excerpt 


When I get down to the garage, an elegant black limo idles just outside the elevator. I immediately feel light-headed. I know Gabe is in there. And if I had any doubt, it dissipates when the window slides down and a hand reaches out, crooking a finger to beckon me inside.
I slowly approach the vehicle feeling equal parts anxious and excited, just as I did last night. Turns out, it is for good reason. Before I know what’s happening, the car door opens and a strong arm swoops around me, yanking me in.
Gabe has me splayed across the seat within seconds, his body caging mine, and his woodsy scent putting me even more off-balance.  

“You look incredible,” his low voice purrs in my ear.
DIRTY LITTLE LIES
Playlist
This just might be one of the strangest playlists ever, but once you meet Stevie Sinclair you’ll understand why. She is a spunky, eclectic character who loves old movies and romance and fun.  These tunes are some of her favorites and they were a blast to listen to as I wrote DIRTY LITTLE LIES. Now go out and listen to these songs (especially Marvin Gaye) – they are guaranteed to help you get your sexy back!!

  • SexyBack by Justin Timberlake
  • Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye
  • Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye
  • As Time Goes By by Herman Hupfeld
  • I Am Woman by Helen Reddy
  • Key Largo by Bertie Higgins (“just like Bogie and Bacall”)
  • I Touch Myself by Divinyls
  • And every song by BeyoncĂ© and Frank Sinatra

My Review

This is a really sweet book, its a quick read. I enjoyed reading it.

Stevie Sinclair has just found out her boyfriend has been cheating, so while he goes away on business, She decides she's getting her sexy back. She moves into a hotel where she meets the amazing Gabe. Who not only helps get her sexy back, but to also make her question why she is doing it.

This was a really lovely book of discovery for Stevie. She's funny, smart, a real character, she not afraid to try new things. And boy does she try them. 

If your looking for a quick read this is it. Its a really nice read.

This book gets 3.5/5

Cover Reveal - Blissful Surrender by B J Harvey

This series is amazing. You really need to give this a look . 


Title: Blissful Surrender ( Bliss #3)
Author: BJ Harvey

This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against. 

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided by the one woman strong enough to threaten his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**

Like the other books in the Bliss series, this book can be read as a stand alone. There are common characters in the books but it is not necessary to read the first two books in the series to read this one.

“Sean, I—”

No. She’s not getting another moment to talk herself out of this, out of us. She’s been running for way too long. This time it’s for keeps. This time, I’m not letting anything come between us—not my brother, not her mother, not her job and not some convoluted idea she gets in her head that she is not the submissive I need her to be. I’m sick of the bullshit, and this time I want what is mine.

And Sam is mine.

Wrapping my arm around her waist, I pull her body tight against mine and slant my head, slamming my mouth to hers as she gasps in shock. My hand grabs her blonde ponytail, holding her in place. Her tight muscles relax when my tongue rolls over hers as I set out to rediscover the beauty that is Samantha Richards. Her taste is intoxicating, and I find myself wanting to consume her, to lose myself inside of this gorgeous woman whose mind continues to deny the connection between us. In this moment, I want to show her everything I am, everything I can do to her, every possible way I can make her feel. I know I’m losing control, but with Sam, I don’t care.

I press my hips into her, pressing my hard as steel cock against the softness of her stomach. I feel her arms move between us, and I expect her to push me away, but she fists my shirt and pulls me closer, thrusting her hips into me in silent invitation.

She may not be able to admit the words, but she can show me with her body, with her actions—she can no longer deny the spark between us.

I pull my head back slightly, raking my teeth against her bottom lip. I scan her face, looking for any remaining uncertainty. If she said no it would hurt like hell, but I’d let her go. Again. But all I can see are swollen, pink lips and half-cast eyes full of want, and I know in that moment that I have my Sammy back. Even if it’s just for a few moments, a few hours, or maybe the night…if that is all I get with her, then I’ll take it willingly.

If this is the only chance I get with her, I’m going to make it count. I’m going to draw it out and make it last until neither one of us can move; until neither of us can breathe.

“You were saying?” I ask, raising an eyebrow.



BJ Harvey is the Amazon Bestselling Author of The Bliss Romantic Comedy Series and The Lost Romantic Suspense Series. An avid music fan, you will always find her with headphones when writing, and the speakers blaring the rest of the time. She’s a wife, a mom to two beautiful children, and a full-time university student. BJ resides with her family in what she considers the best country in the world—New Zealand.
