From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Driven series. 

One Night. That's all it was supposed to be.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

mythoughts

An AMAZING and EMOTIONAL masterpiece! Get the tissues ready, and prepare your heart for an emotional beating. K. Bromberg’s brilliant writing, gripping storylines, and unbelievably captivating characters are just some of the reasons why she is a master of her craft. Her books consume me, obliterate me, and brings out emotions that I didn’t even know I had. It’s amazing that someone can bring me to my knees with her words alone, leaving me broken and emotionally drained. But at the same time, her words end up acting as an emotional blanket for me, cuddling me, and rocking me, telling me it will be okay, until finally when you see the two words you hate to see in a book like this, ‘THE END’, and I’m left in a state of pure bliss, and everything you went through, the emotional upheaval, was worth it. That my friends, is the experience I had while reading SLOW BURN. Did I scare you yet? I hope not, because as an avid romance reader, THAT is the definition of a MUST READ book.

Fans of the DRIVEN series by K. Bromberg have been waiting for this book for what seems like ages. Beckett Daniels, best friend to everyone’s best book boyfriend Colton Donavan, finally gets his happily ever after. But it doesn’t come easily for this amazing man we have all grown to love. Haddie Montgomery is what you would call a KICK ASS heroine. I absolutely adored her and I could relate to her on so many levels. She is NOT looking for a relationship at all. That is the absolute LAST thing she needs in her life, but the ever so sexy and caring Becks is a temptation she struggles to deny.

One night of pure, raw, intense passion changes EVERYTHING for them both. Once the line is crossed, there is no going back. The distraction that Haddie needs turns into so much more, and you can only live in denial for so long. Losing her sister broke her. It left her with a shattered soul and a broken heart. Beckett wants to be the man who can make her whole again, but Haddie is not making it easy for him. Tragedy is all she has ever known since the loss of her sister, but Beckett will show her how to live again, how to love again, and to take a chance on him.

Ok, now that I’m getting choked up again writing this review, I am reminded of the greatness that is K. Bromberg. This woman is a force, she is a master, and she is a genius at what she does. And what she does, is transports her readers to a beautiful world full of passion and romance; A world that is so hard to leave, a world that you will never want to escape, a world made up of your most precious dreams.

SLOW BURN was, in one word, perfection.

Couple in love
