UK Blog Tour: Slow Burn [Driven 05] by K. Bromberg!

Publication date: 24th February 2015
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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?

I haven't read the other books in this series, but I've heard a lot about them, so when the UK publisher of this book emailed me and asked me if I would like to be on the UK Blog Tour for this book, I said yes after I found out this book could be read as a standalone! Plus, it sounded amazing and the cover is intriguing! I'm so happy I said yes to reading this book! It was absolutely amazing! I also thought that I was going to have a hard time following it as I haven't read the other books, but I understood everything! The plot was also so beautiful, but very emotional! There were some scenes I just balled my eyes out at, but then there were scenes that had me grinning like an idiot lol! My emotions were all over the place! I also had a hard time putting this book down too! I kept wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! I was drawn right into it! The plot also dealt with a very difficult subject matter, which is probably one of the worst subject matters to not only read about in a book, but experience in real life! The author did a brilliant job with the subject matter though, and I loved every second of reading this book! The characters were amazing! Haddie was the main female character, and my heart completely went out to her in this book! She had already been through so much and experienced so much loss, but then she went through so much personally in this book as well! Haddie was such a fighter though, and she was strong and she was fierce! I loved that she was fierce! It really helped her in this book! Haddie was also quite a stubborn character when it came to her love interest, but I could completely understand why she wanted to keep him at arms length! She did it to protect him, not knowing that he was never going to let her go through what she did by herself! I just loved Haddie and I connected with her all the way through this book! Beckett 'Becks' was the main male character and love interest of Haddie! I loved Becks! He was seriously hot, he was really protective, and I could see that he had some insane amount of love for Haddie! He also really impressed me in this book with how he handled Haddie's stubbornness! There was just something about Becks that instantly made me connect with him too! I loved that he was there for Haddie every step of the way in this book and that he was patient with her while she processed everything and manage to get a grasp on what she was about to go through! I just loved him and he's definitely added to my book boyfriend list lol! I also loved that this book was written from both Haddie and Becks point of views! It really helped me connect more with both characters and it helped develop the plot more! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to be another standalone book, so I'm definitely going to be reading it when it releases! I'm also definitely going to be checking out the other books in this series that are already released! The cover for this book suits the other covers in the series perfectly! I love it, and I love that it's different, but not too different to the US cover! Big thank you to Sphere for a review copy of Slow Burn and for having me on the UK Blog Tour!
