The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a standalone story about finding love where you least expect it…
Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father’s shadow.

Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.

Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

Maria’s Review

➦It has been a while since I’ve read the Driven series by K. Bromberg. And after reading this book I was reminded how much I love her writing. This book, by the way, can totally be read as a standalone so no worries if you haven’t read any of the other books in this series.➦Getty, our heroine is on the run. From her father and abusive ex-husband, who both are such major assholes they should have won this

➦A friend of a friend temporarily lets her stay at a vacation beach property. Getty moves in and starts working as a bartender/waitress at a local bar. Her douchebag of a father has frozen her trust fund money.

➦Getty’s days are long but she needs the work because she is broke. So one night she comes home after work, disrobesin the hallway, walks into her bathroom and

Nekkid hot man, people! What a great way to meet someone lol Anywhoooooo… So turns out that friend who let her stay at the vacation house… well her husband let HIS friend stay at the house too. Someone needs to communicate better, because, seriously. How dare he?

➦So now these two have to live together because they both are hiding. What is the hot man of a race car driver hiding from? His issues certainly run deep so there is no way for me to even attempt to explain it. And why bother, I don’t want to spoil your experience of finding out for yourself! 🙂

➦The book was very emotional for me and I sympathized with the characters, especially the hero. I’ve “met” Zander in previous books of this series so I kind of knew a little bit about his background. The main focus of this novel is Zander’s character development and you will be able to understand the internal battles this man fights.➦This is a story of two people helping each other heal and finally allowing someone else in. It’s really beautiful and at the same time does not lack in the humor or steamdepartment. It definitely hit the spot for me – it had that “friends first” theme and the slow burn build-up I so love in my books. Excellent – definitely a favorite of 2016! Recommended!

➦And even though I never get approved for K. Bromberg’s ARCs and have a huge sad about it… I will never stop reading her books :p
