*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*
I was excited when I was approached to read and review Driven by K. Bromberg.  I had been hearing good things about the book and it had been on my TBR for a while so I eagerly accepted it!
The Story:

The story of Colton and Rylee is a well written story and while basic premise was not original (rich conceited guy, sweet innocent girl) K. Bromberg was able to write the characters just different enough that they stand out. . While the book was well written the fact that there were lots of similarities to other popular books pushed me to not give it a 4.  But at the same time I just had to finish it and I'm dying for the next book in this trilogy set....which is why I gave it a 3.5

The Heroine:
Rylee Thomas

So Rylee was a bit different for me.  If you look at the "normal" heroines of some of the most popular books out right now you get a Soft, shy girl who, even though they think they put up a good fight, actually give up rather quickly and fall head over heels in love.  Rylee actually puts up a good fight because even though she's kissed Colton she really doesn't want to move on after her Traumatic experience.  She seemed more realistic to me because she didn't know quite what to do with herself.  And even though she was second guessing her decisions she wasn't doing it in a way that made her sound weak and feeble. 
The Hero:
Colton Donovan

Oh holy hell.....Colton Donovan may just make his way into my list of favorite book boyfriends.  Not only is he sexy, arrogant and a total Alpha Male *sighhhhhhh*but he drives a race car and he has one of the biggest hearts.  He doesn't just throw his money around to prove that he cares, he actually does something about it and helps.  He's broken but knows it and you can really sense his inner struggle between trying to be sweet and romantic and wanting to run away as fast as he can.
The BFF: I love Haddie, she totally reminds me of myself!  Any BFF that can say " maybe it
s best to throw caution to the wind and embrace your inner slut for a little bit.  Have some fun and a lot of mind blowing sex!" is like the perfect BFF!  And I'm kind of hoping there might be a spinoff for a Haddie story that I may see coming in a plot line from the 2nd book!

The Steam:
Driven is most definitely a steamy book.  There are hot scenes, angst and even a bit of bondage!  But I was disappointed when one specific scene was skipped over and just referred to in the past tense.  It would have been such a HOT scene!  But thankfully K. Bromberg has said that there will be lots of sex in the next book in the series!!!! Yeah!
The Cover:
The cover left me a bit confused after reading it.  The cover was hot and totally drew me in when looking at a line up of upcoming books but after reading it the girl on the cover reminds me nothing of the heroine in the story.

I enthusiastically recommend this book to all of my readers!  I think it's one of those books that will only grow as the series goes on and develops into it's own!

Favorite Quotes:
“You know that deep down, a tiny part of that proper, respectable woman you are, wants to visit that reckless, sexy, uninhibited place inside you that’s begging to get out. A place I can undoubtedly help you find.”
K. Bromberg, Driven     

“I’ll purposely do something to hurt you to prove that I can. To prove that you won’t stick around regardless of the consequences. To prove that I can control the situation. To control that I don’t get hurt.”  
K. Bromberg, Driven
