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.
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?

Very entertaining read. Hot alpha H and smart h. I can not stand books where the h is all whiney and stupid, though I have read my fair share of those too. Its the difference between what makes me go back to an author or listen to a book only when there is absolutely nothing else. Right back to the story. The book was hot. The relationship/chemistry between the H/h was palpable. There was enough smex to keep you simmering but there is definitely a story that sucks you in as well. The story has a lot of internal monologue but it adds to the story. I also love books told from both H/h perspective and of course dual narrations.Both narrators were superb. In fact I have bought a few books from authors I never tried before simply because they were narrated by one or the other. They rounded off the book perfectly for me.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Wow, where to start :) I really liked Rylee in Driven, and here in the second book, she’s still the feisty, say whats on her mind, will not settle woman who came into Colton’s life, but she has also grown in this novel. Her determination to understand and help heal the man she loves, has her refusing to be pushed over and making strides in holding her ground against the force of nature that is Colton Donovan. And a force of nature he is ladies!!!! But even in her demands, Rylee is terrified that it will be these same demands that might drive him away completely.
I’m not going to give spoilers, but Fueled really gave more than glimpses of what makes Colton Donovan... Through his hard alpha male exterior, I really began to really get Colton and what he’s going through and trying damn hard to keep hidden. Boy does he have some things hidden, and, wow, what a story he has, which continues to unfold. At times I found myself really hurting with and for Colton. I just wanted to Hug him and tell him he is so worth loving and take the risk - let some of those barrier walls down...
Their internal and external battles with each other has you holding on to the edge of your seat and fanning at the increased intensity between the two. They each knew just how to tick the other off which resulted in certain lines being drawn in the sand, obstacles arising everywhere, and oftentimes, reacting from a place of fear and pain...
Fueled had a truly unforgettable, cliffhanging ending... It was breathtaking, emotional, thrilling, frightening, amazing, beautiful, and crafted in such a way that - Yet again - I’m hot as fish grease because “Crashed (Book 3)” hasn't been release yet. Grrr... I’m so thankful that this sequel was even better than the first novel, but you must read Driven first!!. K. Bromberg is an amazing writer and I’m so happy that I this exceptional series.
Tatiana Sokolov and Sean Crisden are the perfect Narrators for this amazingly emotional story...

Since Driven ended on such a dramatic cliffhanger, I was anxious to get Fueled to see how things worked out. Rylee just got on my last nerve for most of this book. The writing is so much like every other contemporary/erotic romance - isn't there any originality anymore? And all the references to songs - I don't think I'm alone when I say that I don't any of these songs, so inserting them into a story is just very distracting.
I suspect that when the third installment comes out, it will turn out that the story could have been told better in one well-written book rather than three mediocre ones.
Narrations wasn't all that good either. Sean Crisden was better than Tatiana Sokolov.
Yes, It was a great story with a great narrator.
I would compare Fueled to books like, "Crossfire Series," by Sylvia Day. A troubled strong Alpha-HOT male character struggling with his past.
Oh I loved that this book had 2 different voices- A great female voice and a great male voice. It brought the characters more to life. I love listening rather than reading, because I am able to get a lot of work done around my house and I commute a lot.
Yes, sadly I did have to pause for some sleep. I finished this book real fast, anxious for the next and last in the series.
This series is worth a credit!
Let those who you love know today, tomorrow is not promised! Life experience, Mishawn
Great book, love the draw between Colton and Riley. The selfless love she has for so many. It's a 5⭐️ All the way across the board!
They worked together so good. They are a great match together for all the characters they did. Especially anytime they stretched out the word F***k!
The stories of each of the boys is a great attraction. It really makes me ache for more info about them. It kind of sounds like we may get more in site to a few of them on this next book. I hope so.
Well.... This book started out as a promising squeal to "Driven" which I enjoyed. But then she managed to destroy the characters for me by letting them become the stupidest couple of people I've ever read... Talk about using half the book for them to beat around the bush like a couple of neanderthals! Seriously! Hours of it... Honestly It was so annoying how Riley sunk down in to the cliche pit of believing the pitiful bitch on the side - She had such promise! But no... Half the book made me roll my eyes and rip my hair out of how incredibly wasteful this whole second half of the book was. They could easily fixed this the first morning and filled the book with more hot chemistry and broken little boy revelations... But no - the total lack of letting anyone explain completely took the fun out of the story and everyone say all the wrong things. Did they all loose their whits? It just went on for way too long. Thinking the right things but never saying them... And then B.A.M!?? wth? Blææh.
I loved the first book but the second I found myself saying "what friend would tell you that" or "why isn't the story line of the kids or his mother being featured". Hell at that moment I would have liked more about racing. Just missed the mark for me.
I wouldn't say either version is better than the other, but I chose to listen to this book instead of reading it because it's such a long book and listening to the audiobook allows me to continue reading it when I can't have the book in my hands. I also enjoy the interpretation the narrators have of the characters and the voices they use.
I really loved how Colton viewed Rylee. I can understand how difficult is for a woman to truly love herself and her body completely. There's a scene in front of Rylee's full length mirror where Colton gives more to Rylee in that moment than most women are able to do for themselves. For a man to be able to express how he truly appreciates the woman's body and why she should love it as much as he does, it was a beautiful scene.
My favorite scene is what leads up to Colton getting into his car on race day. The two characters have put themselves through the ringer, experienced every emotion and said it all but one thing. As Colton looks back at Rylee before getting into the car, I melted. He's able to fully express himself for once. It's what Rylee needed to hear and it's what I had been waiting to hear as a reader as well.
This is a book about their relationship, there are lots of ups and downs, misunderstandings, extremely hot sex but is a journey of discovery for both of them. It is beautiful, it is ugly, it will make you laugh, it will make you cry but it is honest. It is beautifully written, extremely addictive, I could not put it down. I was emotionally exhausted and spent by the end. I laughed and cried at all different parts of the book.
Both characters drove me nuts the whole book, but in a way that forced me to keep reading to find out what happens. I liked the question about forgiveness vs self-preservation presented in this story. At what point is it not worth it to forgive just to protect yourself from the pain that's guaranteed to come regardless. Then of course, a good cliffhanger. It was easy to predict, but still leaves me the craving to start reading the next book.
“We’re not broken, baby… we’re just bent. And bent’s okay. Bent means we are just figuring things out.” (after hearing one of my favorite songs)
“I want you to see what you do to me. How you – in this body that is beautiful inside and out – cause me to come undone. Can unravel me”… “Can reduce me to nothing and build me up all at the same time.” – Colton
“How can you accept love from anyone when the one person that is supposed to protect you from everything is the one who harmed you the most?”
“You can bet your ass that’s one checkered flag I’m definitely claiming.” - Colton
“Fight, Colton! For you. For us. For me. You don't get to pull away from me. You don't get to walk away without a second thought. I matter, Colton. I deserve the same more than you do. What we have is not inconsequential.” - Rylee
What a great trilogy this is turning out to be - Rylee and Colton are so good together but so bad for each other too as more secrets, betrayals and one hell of a cliffhanger made this an action-packed, hot, passionate, tearjerker that was so well written and described that I felt I went through every emotional scene with them.
I don't want to give anything away as this is your exciting listen to discover so all I can say is that if you haven't already discovered this awesome trilogy then get downloading…. you won't be disappointed.
Worth a credit? Loved, loved, loved it so… YES YES YES.
