The Driven Series by K. Bromberg. If you haven’t heard about this series- let me give you a quick synopsis of what I can easily say is one of my favorite series.
Colton Donavan is an INDY driver who always seems to have a beautiful blonde on his arm. Rylee Thomas works at a halfway house with boys who are suffering from abuse and have no one else. She would do anything for her boys. Colton and Rylee’s paths cross in a chance encounter at a charity gala for THE HOUSE, the halfway house that Rylee works at when Rylee falls into Colton’s arms when he rescues her from a claustrophobia inducing closet. The series follows Rylee and Colton as they are both drawn to each other yet each having baggage keeping them from fully committing to each other. This series is full of the feels…trust me.
The series has a companion that wasn’t released during my first review of the series. That companion is called Raced. And I did review it happily after it was released. You can read that review here, but to give you a quick idea of what it is- Raced is NOT a stand alone book- but just parts of the original story from Colton’s point of view (something you get in the main series as well).
Why am I bringing up a past review? Easily. I wanted to share with you that if you are interested in the series- now is a great time to get into it? Why? Because the author has released a special boxed set that includes the three original books of the trilogy (Driven, Fueled, Crashed), the companion to the trilogy Raced, three additional scenes featuring Rylee and Colton, as well as an extended except from her upcoming novel Hard Beat (to be released November 3rd, 2015) and the entire prologue of the lastest novel in the Driven Series, the much anticipated (by me) Aced (due out in January 2016) which is known by fans of Bromberg as the “ten year gap” novel that will actually cover the ten year gap from the last chapter of Crashed ended and the last epilogue in that book- which is approximately 10 years later.
Our paths should never have crossed.
Colton Donavan was arrogant, exuded that bad boy vibe, and embodied everything I never wanted. And yet all it took was one night, one hallway, and one stolen kiss for me to know I hated him and desired him instantly.
My heart was healing. His soul was damaged. But with one bid, one little boy, and one carnival, I couldn’t walk away and he wouldn’t let me in.
But I don’t give up that easy.
The best part about the Driven boxed set (besides the prologue to ACED) is the fact that the chapters from Raced are interwoven into the series- so that there are repeated chapters occasionally as one is the chapter from RACED. THIS IS GREAT for people like me who like to do rereads with Raced so I don’t have to keep going back and forth between two different books on my ereader.
The Driven series boxed set is actually on sale this (September 14th) week for $4.99! After the first week it will go up to $9.99 which is still quite the deal for four books! Get it soon though because this special Driven boxed set will only be available until October 16th, 2015:

For “Full Disclosure”: I bought the original trilogy at the urging of a friend and enjoyed it so thoroughly so I ordered the reading companion as well. I was not asked to review it by anyone- I did so because I loved what I read and thought you might too. And heck yes I bought the boxed set! I love the idea of reading the series without having to go back and forth between the companion plus…I REALLY want to read the prologue to ACED!
