REVIEW: CRASHED 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?

Court here...I am sitting this one out...! FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING, right. Here is Shel's thoughts on the third book in the Driven series. Check it out! 



OUR REVIEW:

Man oh man, does Bromberg love torturing her characters or what? I thought the first two novels 
in this series were filled with some hard stuff...this one ..well, it definitely measured up in the angst
department.  At the end of book 2, Colton was in a terrible accident and Rylee witness the entire thing ..which is where we start in book 3. 

Without giving much away, let me just say that there is drama in spades in this book. Colton and Rylee were just beginning to get their shit together in the last book when the accident happens. Then, in this book the waves of drama just keep rolling in. Just as we catch our breath and think that finally, finally they will be able to explore what it means to be in their relationship together, another thing knocks them off their feet. To Bromberg's credit, she gave her characters the capacity to communicate their feelings and to have secondary characters kick their asses when necessary..but damn, she kept Colton and Rylee on their toes for a while. 

Haddie and Becks and Colton's father were stabilizing influences...voices of reason or harsh truth. They also brought levity to take the edge off the tension. Had and Becks get the next story, so it'll be interesting to see what happens with them as we get little peeks of Colton and Rylee as wel ( I hope!). 

Favorite part? Probably the scavenger hunt and the last epilogue. Both were sentimental and sweet...

I'm not sure how I feel about all of the plot devices that happened to get the characters to their ending, but I was so very curious about this book and am glad that I saw how their story ended.
