**Double Review** Driven & Fueled ~ K. Bromberg

Synopsis ~ Driven ~ 

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?


Synopsis ~ Fueled ~ 

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?

Amy's Thoughts ~ 

Colton. Donavan. 

Good Lord what a whirlwind! I started Driven last night, read well into the early morning, got the kids off to school, finished Driven & devoured Fueled! DEVOURED!! 

Where's the third book when I need it??

There's no way to possibly review these two novels separately, so together it is. 

Tonya and I had posted about taking nominations for the 2013 BBF and suddenly our news feed was blown up with all things Colton Donavan.  I had no clue who he was. I had never heard of his sexy self. Well here's my question. Have I been hiding in a cave or something?? How did I not know about this sexy specimen?? 

Well, needless to say, we have not been properly introduced! 

Donavan is used to getting what he wants in every fashion. So when he meets Rylee, he's in for a huge surprise. The surprise that she doesn't want him. Donavan sets himself on a mission to get her attention in anyway possible. Manipulating both of their lives in order to make it happen. He's relentless, ruthless, devastatingly charming, & oh so sexy. 

Rylee has more control over Donavan than she realizes. Where she thinks she loses control, she and she alone has the ability to make him lose his mind.  Even though some don't prefer it, I like that Rylee makes him work for the right to be with her. It shows that she's not another groupie, she's not going to be the next notch on his bed post. 

I loved that Colton pushed himself into all aspects of her life. Showing her in multiple ways that she was more to him. Colton, as most alphas, is a bit damaged. Book 2 killed me with the ending, I really can not wait for book 3, because I know it's going to be epic. 

**Reviewer Note = I REALLY hate when every alpha male is compared to Christian Grey. Colton Donavan is in a league all his own. And CG has no place being compared to him. CG is NOT the be all to end all!**
