"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.
"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!
"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/$$.
It's interesting hearing of background characters in there own stories. Zander, for being so messed up. But, turned out great!
I loved Down Shift I was not disappointed. The whole Driven Series is great all the characters have a wonderful story and each has a place in my heart. Now we add Zander's story. Thank you K Bromberg you are amazing.
"Another fantastic book by K Bromberg"
I have been a fan of Kristy Bromberg for years and she has written another winner. We first met Zander in the first if her Driven series. He is no longer that damaged little boy but a grown sexy man still dealing with the trauma of his childhood. He meets Getty, a feisty, beauty with demons of her own. The sparks and the sexy heat fly!
This book does have references to the Driven books but it is a stand alone and will be enjoyable without reading the Driven series first. That being said, the Driven series is excellent. K. Bromberg is one of my "always buy" authors .
It is very credit worthy.! 😄 You will not be disappointed!
I love this book. This is saying a lot since lately I cannot seem to find any good books to read or listen. I was very sad for Getty's life and Zander"s first few years of life. But I cherish the good moments. When these two meet, wow. Oh the guy can talk, he can romance, he can make you feel with just his words. There are so many things to love about him. Moments to smile, moments to wish you can bash her dad and her ex-husband in their heads but I definitely will be listening to this again in the future.
The Narrators did a great job.
Yes, yes, I would definitely recommend this book. It's worth the money.
Love it, this was the best storyline after the original story of Colton and Riley.
