Bonnie I loved this series too. You should try Katy Evans' the Real series. I think you'll love Brooke and Remington as much as Rylee and Colton.…moreI loved this series too. You should try Katy Evans' the Real series. I think you'll love Brooke and Remington as much as Rylee and Colton.(less)

Well, what can I say but this is the conclusion to Rylee and Colton's story. It has highs, it has lows, it has healing and angst. If you thought Driven and Fueled took you on an emotional ride, then hold tight, because it's just getting started from page 1 of Crashed on.

Colton's reveal of his past is raw and gritty and not sugar coated...but that also means it's 'real' and you as the reader are in the passenger seat beside him through it all. Rylee deals with a lot too in this book and you root

A perfect ending to a fantastic series!!

Crashed was an intense, emotional, riveting ride from A to motherf*cking Z. It's a story that makes you believe in the resilience and healing power of love. Colton and Rylee's journey is sexy, romantic, heart breaking and uplifting. This is the kind of book you don't want to put down and you can't wait to read more of, and without a doubt, the Driven Trilogy will forever be one of my

**Note, minor spoilers for those who have not read the first two books.**

We begin Crashed right were Fueled left off. A fireball of destruction that left our mouths gaping open, our pulse racing and tears in our eyes. Hearts around the world faltered in that moment.

As the smoke clears and the medical staff rushes in, Colton has a moment. A pure and beautiful moment that holds such a deeper meaning than I ever imagined it would. But that is not the end of the pain we
5 “A to Z” Stars!!

When I first picked this series up, it was just another book to read. But after that first book, I knew it meant so much more. Rylee and Colton have found a special place in my heart and K. Bromberg gave them the most epically fantastic, healing, loving, perfect ending that exceeded all my expectations.



Any doubts I had about Rylee and Colton (and there weren’t many) were completely assuaged in Crashed and even though they still had their fair share of up and downs, t

5 Crashing Stars.

This third book starts after the dreadful end of the second. And after the worst has passed, a lot more is yet to come. Without fully memory of the last days, some people will try to take advantage of Colton, creating again, more drama and more fight between him and Rylee. And Rylee is tired of fighting against everyone and everything for Colton, especially against Colton himself.
But Colton knows that this time is all or nothing, he’s decided to fight his demons and give Ryle

Instead, it exceeded every expectation I ever had and I am left sitting here writing this review feeling a complete state of euphoric book hangover bliss.

“Remember, life isn’t about how you survive the storm, but rather how you dance in the rain.”

For Colton Donavan and Rylee Thomas...the journey through the storm of their lives was brutal, it was sexy, and most of all it was beautiful when that "checkered flag" was finally taken forever.

After the "Crash" stopped...then it began slowly, cautiously and with pit stops all around. Never have two characters fought themselves or the elements to make it. K Bromber

Book three begins where book two ended after the crash. Things are really thrown into perspective when Colton and Rylee go through all of this turmoil. Rylee realizes just how important Colton is to her, and that he is her everything.

Reviewing on behalf of A Book Whores Obsession:

K. Bromberg faced a near impossible task – write a conclusion that would compare to the brilliance of Driven & Fueled, the best-selling series that drove book fans wild across the world. Well, bring out the checkered flags because, not only did she deliver, she wrote the most epic final installment of a series to date!
Exploding with passion, angst, and drama, Crashed assaults the reader’s every emotion in one delicious novel. Colton and Rylee are ba

"God, I fucking race you," he says to me.

Me to you, K. Bromberg: I fucking race YOU!

Where do I start? Where do I even start?! I've watched this author grow by superhero-sized leaps and bounds over the course of this series. I've witnessed her grab the reigns of her talent and take total, masterful control. Crashed is the culmination of not only Colton and Rylee's journey, but, in a certain way, that of the author's, as well. And both are triumphant!

This series is everything a true fan of romance

I was so glad that I already owned this book after that cliffhanger of Fueled. I was still shocked about what happened and I needed to know what happened next, so I started this book immediately. I was hooked from the start and I didn’t want to put this book down. Crashed was amazing!

There were many beautiful, romantic, touching and hot moments in this book. My favorite moment and the one I still remember clearly after weeks of being finished, is Colton’s last date. It was so swoony, adorable, b

There are not enough words in the vocabulary to tell you how perfect Crashed was to conclude Colton and Rylee's story! I have 'ugly cried', laughed, shouted and punched the air all the way through this book! It was so worth the wait. I am so gutted to have come to the end of it I want more!!

I’m driven by fear…

Crashed starts exactly where Fueled left off. Colton is fighting for his life and Rylee is there by his side fighting and waiting for him to come back to her.
I accept you.
All of you.
The broken parts.
The bent parts.
The ones filled with shame.
The cracks where hope seeps through.
The little boy cowering in fear and the grown man still suffocating in his shadow.
