Rylee and Colton's ride continues...

One moment. Six years ago.

The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it's the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart.

Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it's slipping through my fingers?

How can one moment, when our world seemed so right, resurface and cause our perfect life to spiral out of control?

I can't lose her.

She's my checkered flag.

Though this book is listed as a book 5, you only need to read Driven, Fueled and Crashed to love Aced.

While I enjoyed Raced (book 4), it is a compilation novella of reader requested scenes from the series retold through the eyes of Colton Donavan. So if you love male POV, #1click this one too!

With a blurb like this:

The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it’s the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart.
Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it’s slipping through my fingers?

Many fans seemed very nervous about what Bromberg had in store for Rylee and Colton (and readers) in Aced. Please do not be, this is a wonderful look into marriage. It is not a book just to write a book, this was a real issue they faced. This made me love Colton even more. He loved his wife and he wanted what was right for his marriage.

Aced takes place in a 5 to 6 month time span between the last chapter of Crashed and its dual epilogue and I truly enjoyed taking this journey with Rylee and Colton.

Well, I will NOT tell you what happens but I will say it is was well done! Colton stays 100% true to who he is, a man that loves Rylee to the core of his soul!

As with prior books by this author I adore the banter between the characters, this scene between Colton and Beckett has me smiling from ear to ear:
“Feelings are like waves, brother. You can’t stop them from coming but you sure as fuck can decide which ones to let pass you by and which ones to surf.”

This was a wonderful look at marriage and all it takes to keep your happily ever after!

The use of mental illness in this book pulled at my heart and I hope opens some people’s eyes. It was wonderful to see the family rally around to offer support. I hope that someday everyone in crisis has family that will drop everything to help them!

Thank you, Ms. Bromberg for this look into the marriage.

About K. Bromberg

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th.

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.

She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
