From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…
Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story.
But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…
With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.
He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out…

Let me start by saying I love the Driven series. But, I wasn’t sure if I’d be interested in a book about Rylee’s brother. Well, my doubts were misplaced. I really enjoyed this book. I liked that it could be read as a stand alone with very minimal spoilers regarding the previous books. The setting was unique and relevant to present day. Very well written, giving the reader a vivid, realistic description of what being in the midst of the violence and danger could be like for the characters.

“She’s my little piece of Heaven in this land full of Hell.”

Swoon! Tanner Thomas is smart, ambitious, heart broken and sexy as hell. He is a reporter who loves being in the thick of it. He’s good and he knows it, but a tragedy in his past has him shaking ghosts/ Then, he meets BJ. She’s hot, intelligent, talented, and mysterious. She’s tough and gives as good as she gets. But there’s something more. Together they’re hot and cold, push / pull.  The chemistry is off the charts but they’re both stubborn and wary, not easy to get close to, each for their own reasons.

“You came back to me. ” “I’ll always come back to you.”

The story kept me turning pages and had me engaged from the beginning. I liked both the hero and heroine, in fact, I may have liked her more than him at times, and that never happens. The setting really had me. I think it was what made the story for me. Their banter and interaction was great. Though it wasn’t insta-love, it happens fast and it’s because of their location that it works. Being where they are, seeing what they see makes for intense connections and feelings. Author K. Bromberg sold me. I was invested in the outcome and I held my breath with a every unexpected twists. Fans of the series will not be disappointed.
