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?

"Just jump with me, Socks"
From the moment I first read about Zander as a little boy in Driven, I knew that the day would come where I hoped and prayed that Kristy would write his story. If you've read all of the books in that series, you will know that I am not alone in the number of people who have begged over the years to get more of his story. What happens to him as he grows up, where does his life take him, does he ever find the happiness that he deserves so much after the horrific events that happened in his childhood.
If you haven't read the Driven series and this book is your first, it is a complete standalone and Kristy does an amazing job of providing all the background of Zander's past and filling the reader in on what has happened to him in his life.
How do I write this review without revealing what happens? It will be a struggle because all I want to do is gush about Zander!! As I said, Kristy lays a solid background of what Zander has been through in his life, and the same goes for Getty. We get an all too real look at what she has been through, what's she's experienced and her thoughts and feelings on her past, present, and what she wants for the future.
Kristy takes us on a really emotional ride; as usual when reading her books I was sucked straight into the story and felt all the feels that these two souls are feeling. I smiled huge when Zander and Getty were teasing each other, and I wanted to hug them so hard when they were hurting. For followers of the series you will get to see Colton and Rylee again, which is always awesome. And if you haven't and you're just meeting those two characters for the first time, I would bet money that once you do meet them, you'll be running to your computer to one-click the hell out of the Driven series so that you can become intimately acquainted with these two very special people.
There's so many elements to this story that I loved. There's some drama, angst, some characters that you'll want to throat punch, but also passion and heat and sexy and love and more sexy and soul searching and healing and redemption and more sexy....
I am so, so happy with Zander and Getty's story!! I had no idea how Kristy was going to pull off giving us readers a story that would take Zander from the scared little boy we met in Driven to the man he has become today. Definitely a story that I will read many, many times!! Thank you, Kristy!
If you have not read a K Bromberg book yet, read this and then read all of her books. The touch you on a whole new level. They make you rush to the end and then scream MORE!!
Kristy is by far my favorite author and I will read anything she publishes. Reading her books feels akin to coming home after a long absence. She has a true talent to put the reader in the mind of the character and you can't help but fall in love! Kristy writes of heartache and healing, love and loss but true redemption comes in looking inside ourselves and healing from the inside out. Well done, Kristy! I race you!!!
