Just Another Manic Monday

Another Monday has rolled around and you know what that means… it’s time for Another Manic Monday post. Manic Monday is all about breaking up the monotony of the Monday blues and bringing attention to something that we are extremely excited about. Our posts could be from one of us or from all of us and could be about anything that we are super excited about.

Stacia Says…

You want to know what I am completely and utterly MANIC over??? This week I read, no I devoured (much to the dismay of everything and everyone around me) Driven and Fueled by K. Bromberg.  These books are sexy, funny, angst-filled, and most importantly they introduce you to Colton Donavan, my new book boyfriend. I LOVE a strong, alpha-male character and Colton definitely fits the bill. Driven was amazing and  very rarely do I think that the sequel is better than the first book, but in this case it was; Fueled was MIND- BLOWING!! To add to all of the reasons that these books are a MUST read, they both have killer playlists… you know (if you have been following my posts at all) that I am a sucker for a book with music; well the author does an outstanding job incorporating songs throughout both books that fit perfectly with the story. Driven and Fueled are the kind of books that stick with you well after you are finished reading them. They are the kind of books that when you hear a certain song, word, or phrase you think of the storyline or characters in the book and miss them. They are the kinds of books that you want to read over and over again. Once you complete this amazing series, be sure and join the support group that is set up on Facebook. The ladies of the VP Pit Crew are wonderful and certainly helped me get over my book hangover!I was blown away by this series (as you can tell) and I immediately knew that I had to share them with all of you.


Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…

I am the exception to the rule.

In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off the track.

Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.

I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?

Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?

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 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?

About the Author:

K. Bromberg is that reserved woman sitting in the corner that has you all fooled about the wild child inside of her– the one she lets out every time her fingertips touch the computer keyboard. She’s a wife, mom, child rustler, toy pick-er-upper, chauffer, resident web-slinger, LaLaloopsy watching, American Girl doll dressing, multi-tasker of all things domestic and otherwise. She likes her diet coke with rum, her music loud, and her pantry stocked with a cache of chocolate.
K. lives in Southern California with her husband and three children. When she needs a break from the daily chaos of her life, you can most likely find her on the treadmill or with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good, saucy book.
