Review: Crashed (Driven #3) by K. Bromberg


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.
Big moments.
Little 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?


**4 “Spiderman. Batman. Superman. Ironman” STARS!**

This reminds me of Rylee =) :

My Colton Donavan:

My handsome, arrogant rougue.
A little cocky.
A lot imperfect.
And completely mine.

Crashed brought Rylee and Colton’s journey full circle and ended on a beautiful note. I couldn’t have asked for a better conclusion to this series.

“Remember, hurting is feeling and feeling is living, and isn’t it good to be alive?”

I will try my best to review this without giving much of the plot so I’m just gonna say the things that I really loved about it.

First of.. WOW! Everything was so intense!!! Not in an angsty way though there are some of that as well. No, we’re talking heart-in-your-throat intensity – the kind that clenched my hearts, made me tear up and scream. I was right there just devouring everything, desperately wanting to see what would happen next. Totally invested in their story.

Sexy, heart-breakingly emotional and passionate, this book is an altar for tortured alpha male lover out there. From Rylee’s point of view we witness the magnificence of her strength to fight for the broken boy she loved. From Colton’s finding his other half that could finally heal his tortured soul. The spark in his existence amidst the blur. The light to fade the darkness.

Rylee’s unconditional and unwavering love for Colton was so damn powerful, I am at awe.

“I want him to know that his pain is my pain. His shame is my shame. His adversity is my adversity. His struggle is my struggle. That he no longer has to battle it along, body and soul stained in silent shame.”

Colton rising above the demons of his past and finally learning that he is deserving of Rylee’s love and he is capable of giving it in return was amazing to see.

“I love who you are and what you make me. I love that your spark has stopped the blur. That you wanted to race with me. That I don’t need the superheroes anymore because I need you instead… [So] Start with me. End With Me. Complete Me. Be my one and only first. Be my goddamn victory lane and my fucking checkered flag because god knows I’ll be yours if you’ll let me.”

The issues they have to deal with and overcome were so deeply emotional I don’t even know how they can still be standing. After all that, I believe they can conquer everything! In fact, there was this part in the book that literally destroyed my heart and healed it at the same time, it was beautiful. There was also so many moments that evoked so much sentiment because of its meaning like “nothing but sheets”, “a motherfucking checkered flag”,” my A to Z”, “Spiderman. Batman. Superman. Ironman”, “I race you” and so many more.

“Relationships aren’t easy. They’re hard and can be brutal at times…but those are the times you learn the most about yourself. And when they’re right,” I pause, making sure his eyes are steadfast on mine, “they can be like coming home…finding the rest of your soul…”

The sex was hot but it was more than that now because their emotions were deeper. But even getting that out of the way… K. Bromberg, damn. She writes in a way that it seems like poetry. In fact, I highlighted so many lines that most of the pages were yellow!

“I want every inch of you trembling, fucking shaking, begging for me to take you, Ry, because fuck if I won’t be doing the same. I want to be your sigh, your moan, your cry out in pleasure and every fucking sound in between.”

And I also loved Becks and Haddie! I love the friendship they have with Colton and Rylee. They were not only hilarious but they were also supportive! I can’t wait to read their story next!

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

Lastly, the epilogue was amazing. It left me with a wonderfully satisfied feeling. I was overflowing with happiness by the end and the last line was just perfect. It brought their story right back to the beginning while also completing it. I totally loved it!

So Ms. K. Bromberg, all I gotta say is: I race you. I really, really race you.
