Life is full of moments. Big moments. Little moments. And none of them are inconsequential. Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything. Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she's worth the fight - but how do you fight for someone you know you don't deserve? Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love's not predictable nor perfect-it's bent. And bent's okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he's worth the fight? Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it-have acknowledged that we were meant to be-but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

I have 100s of audio books and this ranks very highly
I cried, laughed and at times wanted to shake Colton & Rylee but it is really the best conclusion to the trilogy
It took me a while to get my head around Tatiana's narration and accept her as Rylee, having read the books first but she improved as the story went on.
Sean Crisden narrated Colton POVs brilliantly, he put so much emotion into the role and his voice is just so sexy. Loved him.
Too many to list here - suffice to say the whole trilogy is brilliant.
Kristy Bromberg is a brilliant author and I eagerly await her future work.
Yes because it's not only a romantic novel it has so many facets to the story it deals with love, fear, understanding, you name it this book has it.
Both main characters they compliment each other and you can not have one without the other.
Both again did a fantastic job Tatiana Sokolov brings the character of Rylee alive with so much personality and she does a great male version of Colton as does Sean Crisden they both put so much expression and emotion into both main characters.
WOW all of it very hard to pick just one moment with all of the Driven series it is such a roller coaster of emotions.
All of the Driven series is a brilliant read/listen if you want every emotion, memory, feeling in one hit than this series will take you on that ride.
I very seldom write a review but this is by far one of the best series I have ever listened to. Book 3 was my favorite hands down!
"Colton can "Race" Me any-day - Hopefully FAST !"
I Sooo looked forward to this last book in this amazing trilogy... God, it was Sooo very Good... In the last book, Colton ended up in a coma. Yes, a coma. I was afraid of the chances of him having an amnesia or something because that would totally spoiled this amazing book for me. But thank goodness, this wasn't the case... But Colton's insecurity about himself and his relationship with Rylee did make an appearance again. I mean like, after what both of you had been through, you still think you can force the girl to leave you again by hurting her... Come on, Colton, that is so stupid...
I loved there love/race, thinking it was unattainable and achieving the attainable... The never-gives-up-on-us kinda love. I love the relationship advice the author inserted in here. I found them majorly helpful. I even stopped once awhile and think about the messages she was trying to deliver. I love how Rylee never gave up on Colton no matter how a jerk he can be sometimes. And I love Colton for trying to change himself, forgetting his past and moved on with Rylee by completely opening himself to her... '"'Remember, life isn't about how you survive the storm, but rather how you dance in the rain.''"
This book will defiantly please and with Tatiana Sokolov ( my favorite Narrator) and Sean Crisden reading it - it is sure to Delight... :)
"liked the picture on the book better than the story"
These are a few things I like about the story:
1) Great sex
2) Interesting storyline
3) GREAT one liners
Cons you ask? Well lets see.
1) KB repeats thoughts over and over throughout all three books
2) You can't just buy one book bcs all three are one story
3) STRESSFULL storyline for books 2 and 3. So much so that it overshadows the love story. Instead of enjoying it, I found myself uptight and stressed. Although not book one
4) heroine is very weak in that in book one she keeps trying to make excuses to see him when it's all weak ones and all it boils down to is that she wants him and will do anything to crawl back into his life. But again, don't worry my friends, this IS a romance and at the end all will workout.
Book 2 was all about her being mad at him and him trying to get her back and terrible interactions.
Book 3... He finally starts to workout through his messed up head and things finally start to workout but then we have a couple of accidents and healing to go through before the happily ever after. Still very stressful.
So overall if I had the choice between 50 shades and this I'll go with 50 even though it was poorly written at least the story kept me interested and excited and full of love.
I also did not like the narrator changes in books 2 and 3. It throws off the reader in the sense that you have to readjust over and over when voices are not what you are used to so it makes it hard to really get into the book. This is not to say I did not like the male narrator, just that I prefer either all male or all female to allow for emersion into the story.
So make up your own mind but this is not the kind of book I would ever want to re-read.
This is the last book to a great story.... But the first part had me really mad and then it all begins to unfold
Great series. Excellent ending. I love happy endings. The damage in all of us can be mended. Found this series by accident.
"A FAST-PACED, BUMPY RIDE TO A PERFECT END"
And the culmination to this fast-paced, passionate, intense, emotional romance comes to a beautiful conclusion! I'm really impressed with K.Bromberg as a writer. She gave us a love riddled with complexity, very likable characters, fantastic supporting friends/family, and an endearing quality with "Rylee's boys" that made this both a fiery, but very satisfying read. At the end of this book, readers are left with a sense of triumph followed by one of the best epilogues ever!
The leads, especially Colton, make such substantial, personal growth that I don't think I will ever appreciate how much work it took for a hero to master his demons and to be able to say the simple words of, "I love you" to his heroine. And sweet Rylee how beautiful and well deserved her HEA with Colton came out to be. YES, all of the heart-aches in this love was definitely worth it!!!! When listening to this book, I would recommend to maybe not read in public because you may just catch yourself crying without notice. Seriously, K.Bromberg writes scenes with extreme tension that are sorrowful, tragic and portray an unbelievable sense of loss, then she will give readers these fantastic highs that are brilliant and bring such relief that I don't think you can help but shed a tear here and there.
The love between Rylee and Colton will be a classic in my library. The things that made their relationship so sexy-fun, sweet and romantic included their banter about being over/dressed underdressed, having ice cream for breakfast and pancakes for dinner, "A-Z," non-negotiables, voodoo "p", and hard & fast/soft slow…..yes, these are sweet insiders. I also loved how they communicated through music when words were not enough. And, who could forget the need for super heroes---"Batman/Superman/Spiderman/Ironman"--OMG, that was so emotionally jarring!!!
Even though this was the final installment, there were so many highs and lows, twists and turns that I almost felt whiplash at times with all of the developments, but that's what made the ride to the finish line so serene and fulfilling. What a great trilogy!!!! I'm so glad I was able to devour these right after the other.
Narrators: Bravo to Tatiana Sokolov and Sean Crisden! They performed very well and contributed in making this a great audiobook!
The only thing I did not like about this story was when the hero used the F-word with Christ or Jesus Christ. I always find that distasteful, offensive, and unnecessary.
"10 STARS.. A RAW, EMOTIONAL & BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY"
Well KB saved the best til last because this gut wrenching, heartbreaking, beautiful and romantic conclusion to Colton and Rylee's love story left me emotionally drained and exhausted but I also had a smile on my face that stretched from ear to ear and that oh so dreamy feel good sensation that only a truly epic book can leave you with.
Boy did they go through a lot in this intense emotional roller coaster that'll have you crying from sadness more than once and also crying for joy more than once too as one minute there's hope and happiness on the horizon for Colton and Rylee then the next minute there's devastation and destruction walking through their door that's hard to overcome then joy at good news is swiftly followed by danger, murder and a bloody heartbreaking loss. But through it all secrets are finally shared, trust is finally earned and happiness is finally found.
Colton does what he's so good at..... plenty of dirty talking, hot sex and passionate pleas and Rylee is strong, determined and understanding as she holds on with love, devotion and faith for their future happiness and broken Colton finally trusts in her ability to catch and love him. Lots of character growth, a full cast of great secondary characters, devastations after devastations but they manage to hold on to each other through every tragic pit stop and eventually they heal each other and reach the chequered flag together forever.
Worth a credit? What a book!!, what a breathtakingly romantic scavenger hunt, what a well-written love story and what an Epilogue or two, what an intense emotional ride it's been and what a nail-biting, pulse-pounding, gripping, thrilling finale it's been. As I'm about to take this trilogy off my playlist I feel so sad as I'm saying goodbye to some well loved friends who I've laughed alongside, cried with and celebrated together when their much deserved and very moving HEA is finally revealed. So, worth a credit?..... well, as I mentally stand up clapping wildly and shout to KB "encore encore!!" what do you think.
"great love story"
I laughed with them, I cried with them. One of the better books I've read.
This trilogy ranks right in the top 5 of my favorite series. Loved Ryley and Colton and the other characters, especially Becks. Looking forward to hearing his story. at times it made me cry and other times made me smile. The only bad thing about this series is that I just couldnt quit listening. Listened to all 3 books in 4 days and they are 12 hour books which makes them even more worth the credit. I will definitely listen to them again in the future! I really liked the narrators, Tatiana and Sean. I think they did a great job.
Wonderful, enthralling story, just wuen ypu thoigjt it was over it would grab ypu amd suck you in again!! Will be in my library for years to come.
"Steamy with a great story line"
Love these books, I have listened to all 3 & have enjoyed every minute. As a listener we are taken through a roller coaster of many intimate, endearing, sexy, emotional, many laughs and at times sadness that almost made me cry. I loved these characters & now I have completed all 3 books I miss them. I wish for more from K Bromberg.
"Loved this book"
This book was the best one out of all 3 story fantastic, emotion great overall I would recommend this to anyone who likes this kind of book can't wait for the next book written by this author A+++
"AMAZING one of its kind"
This was by far one of the best books I have EVER read!!
Don't miss out on the opportunity to feel while you are reading because I am telling you that this book makes you laugh, cry and scream at the characters, and you know that when it makes you react this way it means that it has gotten you, it had captivated you.
Now that it has ended I feel a sense of loss... I will miss these characters but I will for sure go back after some time and re- listen to it.
If I could I would have given 10 stars to this one.
