Publisher's Summary

Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he's forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own - outside of his famous father's shadow.

Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she's found the perfect escape - until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she was promised. He's undeniably sexy, but she's there to heal. Alone.

Before long, though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving in to desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

Critic Reviews

"K. Bromberg makes you believe in the power of true love. As she tells it, with a little hard work, a little trust, a lot of faith, anything is possible. Down Shift made me a believer." (Audrey Carlan, New York Times best-selling author)

AN EXCELLENT BUILD TO A MOVING & TENDER LOVE STORY

Zander and Getty are two broken people who are forced to share the same house.. but, even though they each wanted to be left alone to heal and to purge the demons from their pasts, they slowly let the other in.. into their secrets, into their beds, into their lives.. and finally into their hearts.

Zander was a tortured soul.. damaged by his childhood and he's running from one tragic event that happened to him when he was 7 yrs old and Getty had run away from her controlling manipulative Father and an even worse ex. Somehow Zander, the gorgeous sexy Racecar Driver, had to tread carefully around Getty and Getty, the vulnerable yet determined Bartender, tried hard to fight the sexual attraction - attraction and feelings that she'd never felt before. Despite their rocky start.. they were there for one another, healed each other and found their HEA together.

This is a well paced emotion filled dual POV romance with sex, passion, heartache, humor, angst and drama along the way and it's got its share of touching, sweet and romantic scenes too. An awesome story and the great narration topped off this intense and addictive listen.

Worth a credit? K. Bromberg is a trusted Author for me and her books are always an auto download.. so YES creditworthy.

Blood, Band Aids, Scissors

Past: We meet Zander in book 1 of the Driven Series. As a child Zander was found next to his dead mother putting band aids on her trying to stop her bleeding. He was sent to the boys home ran by Riley. Zander liked race cars, so of course, Colton became his role model.

Present: Zander is now a professional race car driver working for Colton. Zander receives a box that contains items about his mother and it sends him into a downward spiral. He won't talk to anyone about what's bothering him. Colton tells Zander he's out-of-control and is fired from driving until he works out his issues. Zander makes a deal with his friend, Smitty, to stay at his cabin for a few months and complete renovations in exchange for anonymity.

Getty is running from an abusive past. Her husband was mentally abusive and cheated on her. She was able to divorce him without his signature and now wants to start a new life. A friend of Getty's, Darcey, told Getty she can stay in the cabin.

Getty comes home from work and undresses to get in the shower but much to her surprise there's a man in the shower. So the first time they meet their both naked in the bathroom. This is their story...

I really enjoyed this story and have already listened to it a few times. It was fun to catch up with Colton and Riley; and to find out how Zander's life turned out.

This book can be a stand alone but Driven is a really good trilogy you're missing out on.

K. Bromberg is a very talented writer. I adore her Driven Trilogy and Zander's story.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell gave an entertaining performance. They are two of my favorite performers.

Absolutely worth the credit/$$.

another great book in this series!

I really liked this very sweet love story. not a whole lot of drama but enough to add interest. too bad there aren't a whole lot of Coltons and Zanders out in the real world! I thought the narrators did a good job but I've listened to quite a few with Joe Arden, always good. Love K Bromberg. I'll be watching for more. I really appreciated the length of the book. A little more bang for my credit!

Takes The Checkered Flag!!!

Front the starting line without a doubt this tremendous tale will have you glue to every word! This book has every last emotion stitched in tight. You won't be able to stop listening!
Put the brakes on the rest of your life because until you have heard the whole book it will just be background noise!
I'm wish I had my own Sweet Z to race after!!!
A truly amazing modern day fairytale!

One of the best books in the series

I loved this book Xander is just as sexy and romantic as his dad Colton. I loved the storyline it was different from all the others and it was an eye-opener learning about more of Xander's past before Riley came into his life. There were moments I laughed and there's moments I cried and so many moments I swooned, cannot get enough of this series

My favorite of Driven series

I enjoyed getting to know Zander as an adult. Very sexy and endearing. Enjoy Maxine Mitchell when she is reading straight dialogue... cringe when she reads the sex scenes. That shaky voice when she is supposed to be turned on...is just weird. Joe Arden is always awesome.

Best of the series!

K. Bromberg seals it with this final story of what is an incredible series. Zander and Getty are the best couple and the most endearing of the whole series.

Crossing the finish line?

Zander...all grown up with the little boy still in control. Just jump!
Getty trying to become her own woman...darn roller coaster rides in her life.
Can they save each other? Hope so.
K Bromberg hits it out of the park again with the last in the Driven series. Well done.
We really need an extra Epilogue for these two to cross the finish line.
