Crashed (Driven #3) by K. Bromberg-Release Date Blitz and Review
by K. Bromberg
Genre: adult, contemporary, erotic, romance
Release Date: March 3, 2014
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.
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?
CRASHED is the third and final instalment in K. Bromberg’s contemporary, romance, erotic Driven Trilogy focusing on Colton Donavan and Rylee Thomas. Colton is the billionaire race car driver whose earlier years are the stuff of nightmares and Rylee is Colton’s superhero who rescues her man from the pits of hell.
The focus of CRASHED is on Colton’s recovery –both mentally, emotionally and physically-following the crash that nearly ended his life. The reader is pulled into an emotional roller coaster ride of one man’s need to prove he is not worthy of love and acceptance and, of one woman’s determination to ensure that Colton knows that he is not the child of his early years but the sum of a lifetime of experiences and pain. Colton sabotages everything good in his life proving that no one can be trusted with his heart and his soul.
CRASHED (and the Driven series) is a story of overcoming adversity and abuse. Colton Donavan is a man broken by the secrets of his past-the secrets that had imprisoned his heart and his mind into a world of betrayal, abuse and nightmares. Colton is a man who has been beaten down by everything that life throws at him and in this he is reluctant to accept love-from family, from friends and from the woman who has stolen his heart. Crashed is a story of recovery; overcoming adversity and moving forward but not before life and everything it has to offer pushes Colton closer to the edge of the abyss that is waiting to suck him under.
K.Bromberg has written an emotionally intensive storyline (and series) that is astonishing in its’ brilliance, its’ presentation and its’ provocative story. Bromberg seduces the reader into a dramatic and sensual storyline where the pain of abuse follows a broken hero from one life to the next; and where the love of one woman who refused to give up is the only hero Colton Donavan would ever need.

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.

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?
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.
Excerpt #1-Crashed by K. Bromberg
And the only thing I can focus on—can grasp onto as my heart races and body shakes with anger—is that I need a pit stop. I need to find Colton. I need to touch him, to see him, to quiet the turmoil in my soul.
But I can’t.
He’s somewhere close, my rebellious rogue unable to let go of the damaged little boy within. The man who has just started healing is now broken, and it kills me that I won’t be able to fix him. That my murmured words of encouragement and patient nature won’t be able to repair the immobile and unresponsive body that was loaded onto that stretcher and rushed to somewhere within these walls—so close yet so very far away from me. That he has to rely on strangers to mend and heal him now. Strangers that have no idea of the invisible scar tissue that still lingers beneath the surface.
More hands reach out to touch and soothe me, Dorothea’s and Quinlan’s, but they’re not the ones I want. They’re not Colton’s.
And then a terrifying thought hits me. Every time Colton is near, I can feel that tingle—the buzz that tells me he’s just within reach—but I can’t feel anything. I know he’s physically close, but his spark is nonexistent.
