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 coul

Sweet Christ. Ladies, get out some tissues and a clean pair of panties because Colton-Mother-Fucking-Donovan is here. And not only is he still pure heat, but his broken is showing.

K. Bromberg delivers an amazing follow up to Driven. Colton is still our favorite bad-boy playboy that is every bit alpha-male but we get to see a glimpse into his early years and the events that shaped his life.

Pleasure to bury the pain.

This book took my emotions and just destroyed them
4,5 “Race You” Stars.

In this second installment Rylee and Colton have a LOT to figure out after how things ended on the first book. They know their relationship isn’t usual in any way, but they can’t be away from each other. In this book their pasts and Colton’s ghosts keep getting in the way and when their feelings crash and they aren’t capable of hiding them anymore, they’ll know the fight is just getting harder. What neither of them expected it that the biggest fight of all, would be Colton
I'm happy to say it got better.
All the drama, angst and whiplash inducing back and forth reminds me a lot of the Tristan&Danika series by R.K. Lilley. I approve. It's still like watching a car crash in slow motion...both figuratively and literally, but I'll be damned if this isn't addictive as hell.

Fueled picks up where Driven left us hanging. Colton's pov is woven throughout the book. His horrible past is something we get a clearer picture of in the prologue. Colton's vulnerability grips the heart as he relives his painful childhood memories.

Reylee is determined to love him even when he spews his poison at her. She wants to help him be released from the blackness that engulfs his daily self worth.

I've read and LOVED K. Bromberg's last 3 new releases, so I decided to go back to the beginning and read the Driven series. Colton seems to be a favored hero, so I needed to see for myself.

Overall, I enjoyed the 1st two books of the series. They're sexy, sometimes sweet, angsty, and well-written. I particularly enjoyed Colton's relationship and interaction with the boys. They were all so sweet. However, there was just a tad too much drama in this book for me. I know he has a troubled past and m

This book was far more emotional than the first one.

But Rylee never gives up on Colton.
She knows that deep down he's still the scared little boy.

My poor Colton. His back story just broke my heart.

Be warned ladies! There's another huge cliffhanger at the end.

At least we don't have to wait too long for the 3rd book.

Holy Smoly, what an ending!!! I have just finished this book (at 4am!!) and I am so glad I waited until this trilogy was all written before starting it! I would have been so mad at this cliffhanger if the third book hadn't been written yet!! Needless to say, I will be moving on to the final book; Crashed immediately!

I will keep this review fairly short..all I will say is that I did really enjoy this book, although I found myself frustrated towards the last 30% of the story. Rylee, the heroine be

I know...I mean, I don't know...why or how...but NOW that I've finished book 2 and almost instantly remembering the piled up angsty shit from book 1, it didn't take long for me to pick up on the burried angsty aggeavating notion spured in me by the content of this sequel...

So, the bottom line is, they are both broken, hurt, but Colton is more damaged emotionally and physically due to abuse from him childhood that had him growing up with a distor

Colton outshines in this second installment of the Driven Trilogy by making a tremendous effort in his turbulent relationship with Rylee. He is courageous in the shadows of his creeping memories. He becomes a hero worth rooting for.

Rylee, on the other hand, is the sum of everything I despise in a leading lady. She's unattractively catty, immature, passive-aggressive, whimper-y, and avoids communication in lieu of running off her mouth. She doesn't listen. She runs away. Always running. Always wh

Colton is a train wreck of a race car driver. He is unmanned by Rylee and don't know how to take it. In order to keep Rylee at a distance he tells her he wanted her to be available for him only and he too busy and would see her when time permitted and she would have to sign NDA. Rylee wants to be okay with this because he is Colton Donavan.
Colton demons are always there and he won't share this with anyone. This is the reason Colton would race and bury himself in women in order not to feel, fuck

I didn't think it would be possible, but I actually loved this book more than the first one!

Getting Colton's POV at the beginning of this book nearly killed me! Damn.

Can you say major rollercoaster ride with these two?!?! Whoa.... crazy, messed up angst and intentional heartbreak! Which made my heart break!

I can't get enough of this series. I predicted the ending, but it still didn't make it any easier to read. Must. Read. Book. Three. NOW!

Fueled picks up there where Driven ended. I loved this book even more than Driven. It was an emotional rollercoaster most of time, but it was also beautiful and romantic. Rylee and Colton grow closer and they fall in love. I got to know Rylee and Colton a little better and I love both of them even more.

My heart already broke for Colton in the first chapter. His past is horrible. It was a big mystery in the previous book, but I learnt about it in this book. I understand Colton’s decisions and act

This was just stunning. So much angst, so much pain is heaped upon our central characters and the last 100 pages or so, I could hardly stand to breathe. I galloped through this as I binge read the whole series.

It's so wonderful to see the character development throughout these books - the attention to fine detail by the author is meticulous as Colton and Rylee slowly realise the depth of their feelings for one another.

Colton is breaking my heart and the ending - OMG. It's a cliffhanger to end al

Fueled picks up where my heart was shattered at the end of Driven. Colton and Rylee's relationship was and still is a roller coaster of passion, sexual chemistry and tension.

The banter between the two leads and even the secondary characters is funny at times and enjoyable to read.
