Book Review: FUELED by K. Bromberg

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 25, 2013

SYNOPSIS

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

5+ ASTONISHING EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER STARS!

Wow, just WOW!! This book was absolutely mind-blowing! I loved it right from the beginning and I couldn't love it any more by the end. I was so amazed by how the story unfolded because everything that happened was so unexpected, intense, and gripping.

Driven ended on a huge cliffhanger so right from the start of Fueled I was desperate for answers. Well, I did not only get answers right away but I was shocked by the way things were going one way at first and then they took an unexpected turn and gave me a total new and incredible outcome. And that happened a lot through out the book so it was truly emotionally engaging. Really, I felt like with this book my emotions were all over the place and they were constantly switching from overjoyed to devastated, enamored to disappointed, proud to scared, and relieved to surprised. A total crazy rollercoster that I loved so much! :D

I had the feeling since Driven that Rylee was going to be a super heroine and I was not wrong. Rylee was extraordinary! She gave herself completely and unconditionally regardless of the impending heartbreaks she knew she was going to endure. I loved and admired her strength, vulnerability, and her internal struggle to keep those two balanced in her heart but failed every time because her feelings for Colton were too powerful. I totally connected with her at every level and I just loved her selfless, hopeful, and pure heart. Rylee is definitely one of my favorite heroines now.

Now to the king of trouble and seduction, Mr. Donavan. This man has become more complicated and mouthwatering irresistible. In Driven he was a total mystery and he only let his passion and allure be seen but not anymore. In order to keep Rylee he has to break his walls and deal with the pain and confusion that that will bring because those walls are his only protection against his demons. So Colton goes through an emotional journey of understanding his feelings; feelings that are so foreign to him as he never thought possible for a man like him to desperately want and need a woman like Rylee.

Colton was truly a fascinating character; he's so broken and so beautiful all at the same time. He made mistakes and yet struggled to make things right but that never stopped him from going after what he wanted regardless of his tormented heart. He continued to be the broken alpha male that I love and admire so much but in this book he was finally ready to take a chance at something more in his life for the very first time.♥

My favorite parts of this book were anytime Rylee and Colton were together so pretty much almost the entire book! Really, these two together were amazing! They were so hilarious with their banters and so freaking intense with their passionate encounters. Their chemistry was absolutely exquisite and I loved every second of it.

How I loved this book and these characters. I rooted and hurt for them from beginning to end and they gave me unforgettable laughs, cries, and made themselves very dear to my heart. So now I desperately move on to Crash as Fueled also ended on a huge cliffhanger. I can't wait to see how this incredible story ends and I have the feeling it's going to be an epic conclusion.♥

must read without a doubt!! ;)


Favorite Quotes:

"I want to feel again-in the extremes that Colton makes me feel."

"Despite our close proximity, our eyes remain open, the connection between us unwavering. Electric. Combustible."

"What we have is not inconsequential."

"He stands before me, so tall, so imposing. It's no wonder he dominates both my thoughts and my heart. My everything. My whole world."

"You tear down walls I didn't even know I was building. You make me feel, Rylee." 

"His passion swallows me whole."

"No one's mattered before. Ever. But you? Fuck, somehow you changed that. You matter."

"All I saw in that moment was myself as a kid. Myself now. Knew that she loved the broken in us. Was ok with the darkness because she was so full of fucking light."

"I'm fucking drowning in her, and I'm not even sure I want to come up for air." 

"Driven by such unexpected need, fueled by such a relentless desire, and crashing into unimaginable possibilities."

"We're not broken, bay...we're just bent. And bent's okay. Bent means that we're just figuring things out."

"I need you in my life, Rylee. I need you to help me continue to see the color. To slow things down. To allow me to fee. I need you to be my spark..."
