Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author K. Bromberg brings you a romance about love, forgiveness, and living every day to the fullest. 

I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot - but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head. 

But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student. Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep. 

I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden. And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it. 

There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment. Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball. After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.

The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too. Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets. Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.

But sometimes things are too good to be true...and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive.

Are you ready to fall for the Kincade sisters and the men who love them in K. Bromberg's sexy, contemporary sports-romance series? These books can all enjoyed as stand-alones, but you’ll also enjoy listening to them as a series!

Raw, emotional story

Hard to Lose is a raw emotional story that held me hostage from the first page until the last!
Gunnar has been living through his guilt and the nightmares left from his time in the military but he has also done so much for so many others since his time in the service. He is a good guy with a big heart who has learned to move on from the loss of his life’s dreams. But sometimes those lost dreams lead to other dreams and Chase is a dream and future he never saw coming.
In searching for the author of a long lost letter, Chase finds an amazing, broken man with a giving heart who puts honesty in high regard so when Chase’s innocent white lie gets out of hand and he finds out, forgiveness will be hard to find.
Gunnar and Chase may have started out their relationship with them not really knowing the truth about each other but their chemistry and the pull towards one another is undeniable. Can they overcome the obstacles thrown in their way, find forgiveness and move on to the happily ever after that they both deserve? Read, enjoy and find out for yourself!
I also had the added benefit of listening to the audio version of this story and the narrators did an amazing job and it definitely added to my enjoyment of this story!

Awesome!

An awesome end to a great series. Chase and Gunner’s story touched me more than the other three books. Beautifully performed by Jason and Savannah.

Hard to Lose is not hard to love!

Having read and enjoyed every book written by K Bromberg, it would be difficult to single out a favorite until now. My reader’s heart has “belonged” to the Driven series, but after the closing credits of the Audible version and the last page in Kindle, my first thoughts were “ I need to read that again” and “I love Chase and Gunner”. Kristie Bromberg has long been my favorite author and Hard to Lose confirms that status.
Thank you Kristie , Amazon Kindle and Audible for bringing hours of reading joy! Even better than “hit, juicy apple pie” wink wink 😉

Meant to be

I've been looking forward to Chase's story. She's the youngest Kincaid sister so I knew that her story would be special. Gunner is just the person to heal her and she helps to heal him. I'm not sure if she would have come clean with Gunner if things would have been better but they did work out. This story brought some tears when I was listening. Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood were terrific narrators.

Healing

This is a story about broken people who learn to heal through helping others to heal. The hero knows he's damaged, and has sought a small town to become his refuge. Here he attracts others with his gentle, warm and loving personality, particularly those with damage issues similar to his own. Our heroine mysteriously stumbles into this refuge, through a weird subterfuge that can only be explained as fate or angelic intervention. She doesn't know she's damaged, and only realizes it through her interactions with the people she meets who surround our hero, and through being with our hero, to whom she is instantly attracted. His attraction to her is an indication that his healing process is almost complete, and he is ready to leave his refuge and take on the world. Their love story shows them being together as the final step in their individual healing process, facing the world together, and bringing healing forward to help others.

COULD BE THE BEST IN A 5 ⭐️ SERIES

When a letter, written in the past by a heartsick Soldier who’d once had a shot at making it big in Baseball, lands on Chase’s desk she feels an instant connection to it and a deep need to find out what happened to the promising young Pitcher in the five years since writing his short sweet letter. And it sounds like a great plan when she decides to use it to track him down and gain a publicity event for her family’s business. But Chase’s heart will break at the end of a whirlwind romance because her secrets, her lies and her continually putting off telling the truth devastated a haunted hero and damaged the love of the very best man she ever knew.

There was attraction and chemistry from the moment Chase and Gunner met.. there were fireworks on their first date.. there were breathy resolves of ‘casual’ and end dates alongside their first kiss. And, from then on, there was a connection of souls, a friendship, a learning of each other’s characters and a passionate promise of more as they let their bodies do the talking. But Chase’s heart and head warred against each other in an emotional tug-of-war between love and/or honesty.. and, as expected, the impact of her betrayal devastated them both.

Worth a credit? Yes, it was a frustrating story because I wanted to shake some sense into Chase for her stupid stupid lies and not coming clean. Yes, because the relationship built and the romance grew from just sex to deep and meaningful in such an organic natural way. Yes, because Gunner was such a wonderful person, a hero with a tender, damaged, war-torn heart.. and scenes of him with the boys whose parents went to War but never came home.. well that was humbling, heartbreakingly and touching. And yes, because the dual POV narration by Savannah and Jason (.. love you Jason) fit the characters perfectly and together they brought the well-written story, the conflicts of the heart, the range of feels and the heartwarming soul-to-soul love to life.

Amazing end to this series ❤️

I have Thoroughly enjoyed this series and I’m sad to see it come to an end. Gunner was an amazing catch from day one, Chase for sure took her sweet time to come clean but I’m all about long drawn out climatic drama. Thanks to Bromberg for bringing us another sport filled series (although this book lacked the sports)
