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?

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?



FUELED left the readers on the edge of their seat, so I couldn't wait to jump right into CRASHED.   We pick the story up right were we left off. Colton's car spinning out of control and Rylee fearing the worst.  She had already lost one love in a car accident, and she wasn't ready to lose a second.  She had only just got him to admit his true feelings for her, and he can't leave her now.  It's will take a lot to get her to leave his side.

This book absolutely exceeded my expectations!  It's my favorite of this series by far. One minute this book had me crying, and the next it had me laughing.  I loved how K. Bromberg was able to give Colton and Rylee their Happily Ever After, without turning her book into a cheesy romance novel.   

Colton and Rylee were just made for each other.  Both are broken inside, and have had awful things happen to them.  Without each other, I believe that neither of them would have ever healed.  Their transformation in this story is amazing.  It was amazing getting to watch these two fight for each other.  It made the ending that much sweeter!

I usually don't enjoy audiobooks with dual narrators, this one actually worked for me. The story is told from two drastically different POV's.  Tatiana Sokolov is able to bring a soft, sweet tone to this story, while Sean Crisden brings a gruff, sexy tone. I think I have come to the conclusion that, the only way to do this story justice is with two separate, distinct narrators.  These two really bring the story to life.

CRASHED is a great mix of fast-paced adventure and heart-felt emotions. It's a story of adversity and fighting for what you really deserve in life.  This isn't your standard fluffy, serial romance. If you are looking for something a little deeper, darker, emotional roller coaster....this is it! I race you K. Bromberg!
