Publisher's Summary

One night. That's all it was supposed to be...

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while. There weren't supposed to be any strings attached - so why can't she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend's reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked.

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

Beautiful & Emoitional

Would you consider the audio edition of Slow Burn to be better than the print version?

Yes, I am so glad I have the audio edition. The emotion in Haddie's voice just tour at your heart. I have never cried so much over one book before.

What other book might you compare Slow Burn to and why?

From the books I have read this book stands out and addresses an issue that should be out and all of the sorrow, pain, and love makes this book powerful

What does Kelly Ashton and Abel Cantwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kelly & Abel bring the emotion to the surface, I probably would never have finished the book because it is really hard to read through tears.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Time is precious, waste it wisely

Any additional comments?

I loved the Driven series and I am so glad we got a look at Becks and Haddie love the all.
Thank you for your talant and writing a beautiful and emotional story.

Engrossing yet frustrating

The story managed to capture my attention span which quite a few books failed to do lately. The focus was the evil disease of cancer. Haddie was so taken over by first the devastation it left on her family and the effects it left on family and friends as with what happened to her brother-in-law. Then her battle to face it. As a result I found very very few things to like about her. Yes. I understand her situation, but the lies on top of lies in an effort to separate herself from others and in particular from Beck got to me. I got the impression all she cared about was escape into sex and it did not matter with whom either) . To me, Beck was too good for her. She came off as a selfish bitch. I did not feel the love between them. It was just sexual chemistry.

A MUST READ

WOW I didn't think I could love anyone more than Colton Donovan (Driven Trilogy) but Becks gives him a run for his money! What an emotional ride... I laughed, I cried, and I LOVED every minute of it!

WAY TOOOOOOOO MUCH!!

I LOVE K Bromberg's Driven series, so it breaks my heart to say, There was way toooooo much drama, too many tears, too much back and forth. She'd give in and then turn him away. I like Becks but Jeesch! This was just cruel. I get the issues she is facing, heartbreaking. But MY GOD WOMAN! Let someone in. Too many secrets, to many lies, too much total self-centeredness. I get it, I do, but this is not how to go about it. The epilogue was good. There were parts I likes, mostly when they were actually together, but that was so little of the time it was a return for me.

Could have had better narrators.

I have liked all the books in the driven series. The biggest problem with this one was the narration. When either narrator tries to do the opposite sex, horrible! Otherwise a good story.

Help

What disappointed you about Slow Burn?

I have enjoyed K. Bromberg's driven series books. So I decided to invest in the others. I have had a hard time getting through the story as the characters spend most of the book contemplating or in a self conversation. The book drags and I was constantly wondering when will this be over. I think the story line would be fine if there was an editor to cut half the book.

Any additional comments?

My 5 star rating in this driven series was Raced and also the first book Driven.

Boring

Would you try another book from K. Bromberg and/or Kelly Ashton and Abel Cantwell ?

K.Bromberg? Yes. I read the Driven Series w/ Rylee and Colton and I loved it. However, this book was so boring and cheesy. I skipped many parts after falling asleep every night trying to finish it. I will not give up on the author, but this book just didn't do it for me. Kelly Ashton as Haddie gets a pass, but Abel Cantwell as Becks...not so much. His voice was too mature for the cheesy dialogue. Big disappointment. Sorry. :-(

Would you ever listen to anything by K. Bromberg again?

Absolutely!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

I may have enjoyed the story more if I had read it instead of listening to it.

Exciting Roller Coaster Ride

Loved the Driven series and I'm not a race car fan. I wasn't sure about this one, but so glad I bought it. Great story line. Two great deserving people with so much to give. And Wow Beckett was the best guy ever. Love a man who knows what he wants and goes after it. Oh and sticks around when the going gets tough. I think this had some of the sweetest lines and scenes ever. The audio was wonderful too. Way to go K. Bromberg!!
You do not have to have read the Driven series to read this book. But why would you NOT fall in love with Colton too??

Best book out of the series

I loved Colton and Rhylee's story but I fell in love with Colton and Becks. Their story had passion and love and compassion. And you just couldn't help falling in love with Beckett a little more each time.
