Genre: Contemporary Romance

Colton Donavan lived life in the fast lane, but it took Rylee Thomas to teach him what racing was all about.

You think you know me? 

Think again.

*Raced is not a complete re-write of the Driven Trilogy. This companion explores pivotal scenes as well as some new ones written in Colton Donavan’s point of view that were not previously published in Driven, Fueled, and Crashed. Hear his thoughts, experience his inner-turmoil, and laugh with him on his journey as he overcomes his demons and accepts what it means to love. 



The Driven series is one of the most amazing love stories I've ever read. It's one of those kinds of stories I didn't want it to end and when it did I felt sad because I felt so much in love with it. So when I found out there was going to be more to this unforgettable story in Raced I couldn't be happier, particularly since I was getting more of my heart-stopping Colton Donavan!♥
“I’m a take it or leave it kind of guy. And I’m definitely taking this one. Too bad she doesn’t know it yet.”
Raced is compilation of scenes from the three books in the series told in Colton's POV so note that this is not a complete full-length novel. It's more of a beautiful collectors item for the fans of the series and it should be read after the other books.

I found Raced to be the perfect complement to this series. Many fans (including me!) wanted more of Colton and K. Bromberg was able to bring him back to life incredibly in this book. I loved hearing his voice again in my head; he's just so irresistible with his sexy-dirty-talk, humor, arrogance, and all of his brokenness. Yes, this mouthwatering man is a broken and complex man and even though I got to understand him very well after reading the series, I found this book truly insightful about his character.
“I’d like to say I’ll walk away right now and save her the pain but know sure as shit—because I’m standing here—that I can’t.”
Throughout the whole series Colton struggles with many things: risks, doubts, temptations, demons, fears, mistakes, forgiveness, and feelings. So I loved to see what was going through his mind during some very decisive moments and let me tell you he blew me away with everything he thought. When this man feels he feels it with so much intensity and even though he might not know exactly what he's feeling, it felt extremely raw and gripping. I felt like this book was Colton pouring his heart out to me and letting me know and feel what was like to be him during some of the most important moments and decisions of his life. I have to say I loved sharing all that with him and seeing him getting his checker flag once again at the end. This book for sure made me love him even more now!

I also loved getting K. Bromberg's insights as she introduces each chapter. It was an awesome way to connect with her and understand how she felt when writing the scenes, the whole story, and these incredible characters. Characters that will forever stay with me.

Definitely a must read for all the fans of the Driven series! ;)
