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?



Every once in a while a series comes along and lays you flat on your back. It takes the wind out of you and takes your breath away. It reaches in to the depths of your soul and changes your perspectives on life and love. It gets to you on such a deep, emotional level, that you have no idea what to do with yourself once it’s over. It will wreck you, it will consume you, and it will change you. The Driven Trilogy is THAT series for me.

❝I need to see her. Don’t want to be alone anymore. I need to feel her. Don’t want to be broken anymore.❞

Crashed is the final chapter of this unbelievable series. I knew, going in to this book that it was going to tear me to pieces, one by one. I knew it was going to wreck me; the question was, how much? I had my answer after re-reading the series and then reading the prologue to Crashed. I was a goner. There was no going back after that. I have to be truthful with you and tell you that I put off reading this for a bit. I am one to purchase new releases as soon as they pop up on Amazon. But with Crashed, I was hesitant. You see, I didn’t want this series to end. I didn’t want to say good-bye to these broken yet beautiful characters. I wanted to stay in this world for as long as I could. I figured if I didn’t start reading right away, I could put it off and remain in this blissful state for a little while longer. Then I started to look at the little teasers and fantastic reviews online, and I decided that I couldn’t put off the inevitable. I needed to rip the band-aide off, jump right in and know that this author would give me an ending that would satisfy me, and warm my heart.

❝Call me a pussy, but I swear to God she’s the only air my body can breathe. Fuck if she’s not everything I need and nothing that I deserve.❞

Crashed pulled such a wide range of emotions out of me from beginning to end. Fear, Anxiety, Anger, Aggravation, Sadness, Love, Pride, and of course Happiness were just some of the wave of emotions that you will experience. I believe one of the main goals for a writer is to have the reader experience the same emotions that the characters are experiencing. That, in turn, helps you to relate to the characters on a personal and deep level, and then the book becomes more real, and the reader becomes so engaged. They become so engaged that they can’t think of anything else but what is happening in the book. When this happens to me, I call it my great escape, my happy place.

❝I want him to know that his pain in my pain. His shame is my shame. His adversity is my adversity. His struggle is my struggle.❞

I can’t talk about the story without giving too much away, but I can tell you that Crashed and The Driven Trilogy touches on some tough circumstances. It might hit home for some people, and I hope that if it does, it can help give them hope. I can’t tell you how incredibly proud I am of these characters. Sticking with them throughout this journey, watching them overcome odds, and loving so hard, it just amazes me. According to ( the definition of a Book hangover is: “When you’ve finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you’re still living in the world of the book.” I can almost guarantee that this is what you will experience after reading this book. The Driven Trilogy will be one of those series that I will read over and over again. I will cherish the memories it gave me, and I will forever remember the love story that surpassed all love stories.

❝Baby, Heaven doesn’t want me yet, and fuck if Hell can handle me, so you’re kinda stuck with me.❞

I want to give a big Thank You to K. Bromberg for bringing these characters in to our lives. No matter what ANYONE says, you are a fucking Rock Star, and your fans fucking race you! XOXO
