Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: FUELED by K. Bromberg



FUELED (The Driven Triology #2)

by: K. Bromberg



Synopsis:



Book #2 of the Driven Trilogy

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 could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?
He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won't let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there's someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I'd never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I'll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can't be what she needs, so why can't I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?


Review:


Star Rating: 4 stars

Heat Rating:  HOT HOT HOT!!


**Have you read Driven?  If you haven't you REALLY need read it first.  I will even say skip my review of Fueled until you read Driven (spoilers!) I reviewed Driven back in May and you will be so happy that once you are done reading Driven you have Fueled to dive right into (get weekend full of Colton)!**

K. Bromberg!!  Right now I don't know whether I should kiss her for the prologue and first few chapters of Fueled or email her daily until I get book #3 in my hot little hands because of the last chapter.  I am torn.  I will just give her an internet high-five for making me feel this upheaval of emotion. It is a sign (at least in my book) of a well written and intoxicating story when it can evoke strong emotions in the reader and Fueled had me feeling LOTS of things.

Once again K. Bromberg gives a story that is truly an emotional roller coaster ride.  I haven't been this angst filled in a long time.  Rylee and Colton have such a volatile relationship, I can't even begin to describe them as a couple.  You will root for them, shake your head in frustration, want to slap some sense into them and then lock them in a closet until they play nice, all while you are bursting in flames from all the sparks flying!  

I am so afraid of over-sharing but one of my favorite things about this book was getting the POV of Colton sprinkled throughout the story.  Hearing his thoughts was incredible and really helped you understand and get to know his character much better this time around.  I LOVED the prologue and how Fueled jumps right in where Driven leaves off.  K. Bromberg handled this transition amazingly!

Trilogies can be tricky, especially when the first book was so shockingly good, but K. Bromberg does a great job keeping the story moving, giving the reader more information and background on Colton and Rylee, while at the same time delivering a very entertaining story.  Fueled definitely does not do the typical second book filler, it is a great story on its own and leaves you breathlessly waiting for the final book to come later on this year!

Fueled broke my heart, made me giggle and kept me on the edge of my seat; Colton and Rylee really put you through the wringer but it is worth the drama and I am anxiously awaiting more!  If you haven't already picked up Fueled do it now, Colton would be the perfect addition to your three-day weekend reading!

Excerpts:



He breaks from the kiss with a tortured groan and pulls away from me. “Colton,” I murmur, “let me take care of you.”
“Not here,” he tells me, smoothing my skirt down and smirking as he stuffs what’s left of my panties further down into his pocket. “I want to hear you scream out my name when I take you. I want to hear it when you fall apart from the things I’m going to do to you, Rylee. I want to claim you. Make you mine. Ruin you for any other man that dares to think of touching you.” He grimaces from the conviction of his words.
“You already have, Colton,” I breathe out without thinking, reaching out to place my fingertips to his lips. “I’m yours…” My voice trails off as he stares at me, his jaw working overtime as he absorbs the words I’ve said.
A ghost of a smile mixed with an uncertain disbelief plays on his lips before shaking it away and pushing it aside. “I—we can’t continue here with what I want to do, but this,” he says, motioning to me and the wall, “will tide me over.” He flashes a quick grin at me before grabbing my hand and climbing the last flight of stairs.
I follow him, knowing my heart and body are far from recovered from that little episode. Haddie’s words flash through my head, and I can’t help but disagree with her. When it comes to Colton, I don’t just have it bad. I’ve drowned, been consumed, and am utterly and undeniably his.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy…where sometimes, the best things in life are 
Very Bad Things.







Excerpts:



The Kiss in the Library

“I got one last request, and I’ll never ask again,” Leo said.
“What?” I croaked out.
He set his books on a shelf and then took mine and set them beside his. He tugged me to him until our chests were touching. 
“What are you doing?” I mumbled in confusion. 
He put his hands on either side of my face and slid them into my hair, letting out a breath as if in relief. “Just saying goodbye, Nora.”
“You’re going to kiss me?” I asked, tears pricking my eyes at the sadness in his face.
“Please, just this last time, Buttercup,” he said. 
And with that one word, I was his. 
He lowered his head, his gaze holding me captive. When our lips touched, his heated eyes stayed open and mine did, too. My mouth melted into his, moaning as his hot tongue explored the details of my tongue, my teeth, my lips. We started slow but it escalated rapidly, the passion between us burning higher and higher. He owned me with his mouth, and I was lost. 
I palmed his ass, grinding myself against him. He hissed at the increased pressure and pushed me back against the sturdy bookshelf, positioning me so his hips fit into my pelvis. I lifted one of my legs, and he caught it and wrapped it around him. 
“Say my name,” he muttered gruffly as I sucked hard at his neck. He grunted, and I dug my nails into his back as I kissed my way around his collarbone, sucking another spot. 
Say it, Nora.” 
“Leo, Leo, Leo,” I pleaded, arching my back and pushing into him.
He shuddered. “Fucking love that,” he whispered.
 He placed his lips back on mine, dominating my mouth, like a man starved. All I could think about was him, him, him . . . his lips, his tongue, his taste, his butterscotch smell. I wanted all of him, and I’d never have him, and that thought made me frantic. I gripped him tighter, pushed my nails deeper, and kissed him harder. 
I never wanted to say goodbye.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: RUNNING IN PLACE by L.B. Simmons





RUNNING IN PLACE (Mending Hearts #2)

by: L.B. Simmons



Release Date:  Late October 2013



Synopsis:



Tatum O’Connell:
Some call me a party girl. People see me as happy, full of life, with absolutely no cares in the world. They see what I want them to see. But no one knows me - really knows me. Not even Noah Reese.  Mr. Perfect is always watching me, most likely judging every single imperfect thing I do. But, if Noah wants to keep an eye on me, that’s just fine. I definitely don’t mind. I just hope he doesn’t have any plans to save me from my new-found life of self-destruction because in order to save me, he will have to see me…
And I’m never going to let that happen.

Noah Reese:
Perfect. That’s me. That’s the only acceptable way to be, according to my father. Perfect grades. Perfect manners. Perfect athlete. Perfect SAT scores. Perfect college. And recently, I was accepted into the perfect med school. My future has already been mapped out for me and there’s nothing that can change that. Not even Tatum O’Connell. That girl is out of control, yet for some reason, I can’t seem to keep my distance from her. I watch her closely, hoping that one day she’ll let me in, but watching her lead her life down the dangerous path she’s on right now isn’t easy…
I have a feeling I’m about to find myself swept away by the hurricane that is Tatum O’Connell.

“Two fleeting souls, 
Unknowingly tethered.
Too slowly drawn,
Impatient fate calls. 
The jolting collide intertwines their lives
And splinters their walls.”
“Catalyst” – Noah Reese



SERIES READING ORDER:



Excerpts:



Still laughing and not paying attention, I round the corner, only to run straight into a completely different kind of trouble.  A brown-headed, blue-eyed, whirlwind kind of trouble.  A trouble that looks unbelievably hot in a tight-ass, short black dress.  A trouble wearing the highest black heels I’ve ever seen, heels that make her legs look unbelievable and should be outlawed judging by the bulge forming inside my dark Diesels. Damn. She’s also a trouble that I’ve formed a decent friendship with over the last few weeks, so any mental images I have of her doing certain things to me wearing those heels have got to go.  
“Hey!” she says laughing as she flips her hair off her shoulders.  My eyes immediately land on her pouty lips, the clear shine reflecting off of them as she smiles. “What are you doing here?”
I clear my throat and tear my gaze from her mouth.  “Getting my check, you?”
She looks me up and down as she nods her head. “Me too,” she says clearing her own throat.  “Where are you going, looking all spiffy?”
I chuckle because only she would say spiffy.  “I’m taking Piper to that new club, Parallel. Where are you going looking all spiffy?”
She claps her hands together excitedly before taking my hand.  “We’re going there too!  Yay!”
I’m still surprised every time she touches me.  It’s such a drastic change from the first day at the duplexes.  As I think about the last month or so - all the times that we laughed together at something ridiculous that she said, or the fact that she insists on bumping hips with me every single time a song comes on the radio that she likes while singing at the top of her lungs, even the times she lightly brushes her hand across my arm while she’s speaking – there’s a level of comfort and ease about our friendship. Reason five hundred why I need to curb my inappropriate thoughts about this one. 
I smile to myself as she tugs me harder.  “Where are you taking me?”
“To the employee bathroom!” 
Well, that did absolutely nothing to fend off dirty thoughts.
“Why?”
She giggles. Obviously, she’s already started drinking.  Great.  Well, at least we’ll be at the same place so I can make sure Dickhead the Douchebag takes care of her. 
“Because, I’m gonna fix your hair.  It looks too…perfect.  It needs to be messy – sexy, like you.” She stops dead in her tracks. “Um…I mean, as sexy as you look now.” She exhales, frustrated. “Sexily dressed, that’s what I mean.” She bites her bottom lip nervously as she mentally tries to hook her words and reel them back in.  I just laugh because she looks so damn cute.
“So, you think I’m sexy?” 
Saying nothing else, she rolls her eyes and pulls me in the direction of the bathroom.  Once we arrive, she flips on the light and points at the toilet for me to take a seat. Turning on the faucet, she sets her purse on the counter and pulls out a travel size hairspray.  After digging around for a little while longer, she turns towards me.
“Well, I guess this will have to do.” She tilts her head to the left and then scrunches her mouth to the same side, deep in thought. Nodding to herself, she leans over and wets her fingers in the sink before stepping in between my legs.  
She breathes in deeply before placing her fingers in my hair.  Slowly, she distributes the water throughout, often leaning back to the faucet to get more.  Her cool hands work from the sides of my head toward the top, where her fingers interlace to form a spiky section down the center. Then she bends at the waist, placing her face so close to mine, her breaths hit my mouth.  I know I can’t have her, but damn if I don’t want to take some piece of her with me. So greedily, I take in her air with every breath she releases. Her eyes still focused on my hair, I watch her mouth. Still breathing with her, I lick my lips, the movement distracting her so that she brings her blue eyes to mine. In silence, we stare, only the shared breaths between us are heard. 
Taking her hand out of my hair, she places it on the side of my face and gently strokes my cheek with her thumb as we hold each other’s eyes.  Before long, I watch a soft saddened half-smile appear on her lips.  “Much better,” she says with one last soothing run of her thumb before she backs away.  Reaching for the hair spray, she tweaks the top of my hair, pulling random pieces in different directions before spraying them.  I fight the urge to put my hands around her waist and pull her into me.  To hold her. To have her.
Instead, I sit with my hands on my knees, wanting what I can’t have.
After a couple of more sprays, she steps back.  “All done. You’re good to go. To the bar. With Piper,” she says, the pitch of her voice getting higher with each incomplete sentence spoken.  There’s no mistaking the heartache radiating between the both of us.  It’s so thick I could slice it with a knife.

Excerpts:



“I hate you, I fucking hate you. Do you understand?” Rene says in his low, mesmerizing voice.
My heart shatters, stops beating. “Why?” I whisper.
He grabs my hair and pulls hard. “Because you, my dear, sweet Eve, have broken me, destroyed my world. Before you, I’m not a man. I am nothing but a confused boy, sick with a lounging for you that’s so great and terrible; sometimes, I feel as if death will be easier.”
A violent shiver rocks my body. Turning my head, I stick my tongue out suddenly, yearning for his mouth.
He groans, wild and hungry.
His hand in my hair tightens its grip. The other hand grabbing my heavy breast squeezes tighter. “You … you.”
His wide sensual mouth covers my ear, his tongue dips in, and he licks, fast and wet.
I moan, my heart raging inside my body with lounging.
My mouth is jealous. My pussy is angry. They want the bloody attention he is giving to my ear!
“Rene,” I plead.
“Hmm, Mon Coeur,” he whispers lazily, sliding his mouth to my neck where he continues his licking.
He is doing this on purpose.
I am naked. Physically. Emotionally.
He has me on my knees with my ass in the air. His powerfully muscular body pins me down, holding me prisoner.
 Yet he won’t even kiss me. He won’t touch the places that are dying to feel him.

CRASH INTO ME

by: K.M. Scott




Synopsis:


What would you give up for everything?

Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed. 

He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price. 

The world he gave me fulfilled my wildest dreams, but would that be enough when the past crashed into the present?

Excerpts:


He slid the tie from my neck and undid all his work. "Now you show me what you learned." I attempted to take the tie from his hand, but he pulled it away and whispered, "On me. Turn around and sit toward me." Nervous fear shot through me as I stood up, and I hoped I'd be able to turn around without my legs giving out. The dress I wore only fell to the middle of my thighs, so when I straddled him, it was likely to ride up so far my panties would show. I didn't care about that so much as him knowing that I was already dripping wet just from sitting there pressed up against him. Taking a deep breath, I turned around and climbed on top of his lap. He stared into my eyes, unnerving me, but something held me firm in his gaze. His hard cock pressed against the front of his pants and my damp panties. There was no way he didn't know how excited he'd made me. I took the tie from his hand and slid it around his strong neck, even as my fingers trembled at the feel of him underneath them. Trying to hide my ignorance of my task, I wrapped the wide end of the tie around the narrow end, but it was no use. I didn't know what came next. Dropping the two ends of silk, I looked down to avoid his gaze. "I'm sorry. I don't know how to do this." "You didn't listen when I told you how to?" he asked in a voice that was as seductive as it was stern. Shaking my head, I continued to look down at the untied ends of the blue fabric laying against his shirt. "I couldn't. You were so close, and it was impossible to pay attention to what you were saying." He slid his hands down my back and cupped my ass to pull me into him, grinding my soaked panties into the thin fabric separating his cock from me. Kneading my flesh through my dress, he whispered near my mouth, "I love how honest you are, Nina. It makes me want to be honest with you." I wasn't sure how to answer, but it didn't matter. As my head swum from the sensations he'd created in me, he pressed his mouth to mine and kissed me. His lips were soft yet demanding, and I eagerly kissed him back, seeking a release of that sweet ache, but his kiss only increased the feeling, making me want more. He nudged his hips off the couch, sliding his cock over my sensitive clit, and I couldn't stop myself from moaning into his mouth. I didn't want him to think he had this effect on me so soon, but I was powerless. I wanted him so badly at that moment, I would have done anything to keep his hands on my body.
