Synopsis

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?

Liz’s Review

 

"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 could want or need, and this final installment was absolute PERFECTION in every single way!! The heat and chemistry between Colton and Rylee were, as usual, blistering! The depth of character and feeling only continued to build from the second book, Fueled, and, oh, the emotional voyage Rylee and Colton--especially Colton--took me on!!

 

"Fuck being broken or bent, I'm a motherfucking scrapyard of parts right now."

"Remember, hurting is feeling and feeling is living, and isn't it good to be alive?"

"His eyes lock onto mine and I try to pour everything in myself into our visual conversation.

I accept you, I tell him.

All of you.

The broken parts.

The best parts.

The ones filled with shame.

The cracks where hope eeks through.

The little boy cowering in fear and the grown man still suffocating in its shadow.

The demons that haunt.

Your will to survive.

And your spirit that fights.

Every single part of you is what I love.

What I accept.

What I want to help heal."

 

Colton finally fought the ultimate battle this time around. His opponent? Himself, obviously. He fought the demons he knew and those he only came to learn about. As always, at points, he fought his present, as well. Honestly, there were so many moments when I wondered how he could still be standing, how he could still be fighting. Even at his lowest, he defined inner strength. And the love and devotion of an equally strong woman? Standing, sitting, laying...talking, fighting, or making love...these two could conquer anything together!

Crashed is truly--sincerely--remarkable and breathtaking!! K Bromberg's gift--her natural writing and storytelling ability, which has been seasoned and honed to a fine point--shines like the brightest star in this final leg of Rylee and Colton's journey! She deftly ties up every plot point, answering all of those questions along the way. She leaves no one behind. Everyone is accounted for. And if the ending doesn't leave you sniffling and joy-filled, you have no heart!

I have no hesitation in stating that Crashed will make you smile and laugh with glee. It will make you sigh with a heart full of romance. You may very well blush with the intensity of the physicality between Colton and Rylee...or, more likely, ruin some undergarments! And Crashed will leave you in tears from the sheer pain, anguish, and, ultimately, the raw beauty of emotional growth.

10+ Stars!!

  2. My first instinct would be to say Pedro Stoltz, but if he can act or doesn't want to act, I'd pick Josh Holloway (think that's his name) from the show Intelligence.
