Book Review: SWEET ACHE by K. Bromberg

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: 2 June 2015


Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a good guy heart, has lived a lifetime of cleaning up after his twin brother’s mistakes. Hunter’s most recent screw-up could land Hawke in jail and risk the band’s future. Hawke agrees to guest lecture at a local college to stay in the judge’s good graces—and a bet with his bandmate to seduce his sexy teaching assistant is icing on the cake.

Quinlan Westin is harder to bed than Hawke imagined. She knows his type and is determined to avoid the rocker at all costs—even if their attraction runs deeper than simple lust.

Just as Hawke might finally be winning over the girl, his brother has other plans. When Hunter realizes his twin finally has a weakness, he’ll stop at nothing to take advantage…



There's something about this author's books, they win me over every time. With her stories I can always count on incredible passion and off-the-charts physical connections as the icing on the cake, but what I love the most about them is that there's always purpose behind them. A beautiful purpose that with every story, it makes the plot and the characters truly compelling and me as a reader, mesmerized. They're just the kind of stories that make my heart swell with emotions and the experience of reading them is always so worthwhile to me. And that was exactly the case again with Sweet Ache, this sexy, humorous, and emotionally centered story is now my newest reason for loving this author's books so much.

What the hell would happen if I actually allowed myself to let someone in? If I actually let myself love?

This is the first book in this series where the hero is not from the world of car racing, no this time the hero is no other than rocker, a very sexy-hot rocker. Hawkin Play has all the characteristics of a bad boy rocker; known as a player, a complete flirt, lots of tattoos, and women going crazy for him all the time. Therefore, he's used to getting quite the attention. But when he meets Quinlan Westin and she doesn't fall at his feet like all the other women, she immediately becomes his greatest challenge and a band bet his not willing to lose no matter what.

The woman is intriguing and intense and . . . a bitch, but shit, there’s just something about her that has my dick commandeering my thoughts.

So the two of them start butting heads rather quickly and watching them was so funny because behind their banters there was so much sexual tension. The kind of sexual tension that they couldn't let go off and the more they outdid each other with insinuations, insults, and flirtatious comments the more they wanted one another. They were just hilarious together, Hawkin in particular was not one to give up his cause so his ways of seduction and humor were brilliant and so spot on with his many stellar innuendos that Quinlan really couldn't elude his charms for too long.

He holds a red Starburst out to me as a peace offering. “C’mon, you know you want to be the star to my burst.”

The cool thing was that Quinlan was not new to the game Hawkin was playing and for that I loved her character a lot. She was strong, stubborn, and someone who stood her ground for as long as she could before the strong desire won her over. And omg, when things happened between them it was like fireworks all over. Really, their chemistry was so hot, heavy, and combustible that I had to take some moments to fan myself, hehe. Their desire for each there was just palpable and beautiful. But as things got hotter and heaver, they also got more emotional and personal. That's when Quinlan slowly finds out that Hawkin is not just the care free rocker boy he wants everyone to believe he is. No, he has a back story that no only makes Quinlan see him with new eyes but also a story that pulls at her heart so strongly that she wants nothing else than to learn more about her rocker's incredible heart

I may not be able to fix his problems or even know the answers to them, but this? Making him feel so much pleasure he can’t think otherwise for a bit? This, I can do for him.

That back story within this love story was really touching, I loved it. It was more than just scars from a troubled past, it was also a story about a conflicted present and future. An example of how life can put so much burden on one person and make him believe that he's not worth anything better. That was the beauty of this book, how all that gets turned around in the story and with the poignant message of how unconditional love can rescue someone even from the deepest heartache.

Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, only truly grieve behind closed doors, and fight battles that nobody knows about.

I'm a big fan of this author and after reading this one more book of hers, I'm a bigger fan now. Each of her books just has a special magic to them and I'm so happy that this one enchanted me all over with it because I really loved this story. ♥

You can totally read this book by itself as it's a spin-off standalone story and it won't give you any spoilers from any of the previous books. So ladies, if you enjoy bad boy rockers, feisty heroines, and a heartfelt core of a story get ready. You won't want to miss Sweet Ache! ;)
