Release Blitz and Review: Raced by K. Bromberg

The Colton Points of View Collection

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a companion novella to the best selling Driven Trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed). This novella is a compilation of reader requested scenes from the series retold through the eyes of Colton Donavan.

Colton Donavan lived life in the fast lane, but it took Rylee Thomas to teach him what racing was all about.


You think you know me?

Think again.

*Raced is not a complete re-write of the Driven Trilogy. This companion explores pivotal scenes as well as some new ones written in Colton Donavan’s point of view that were not previously published in Driven, Fueled, and Crashed. Hear his thoughts, experience his inner-turmoil, and laugh with him on his journey as he overcomes his demons and accepts what it means to love. 

This novella is for the devoted readers of the Driven series. It is recommended that this companion be read after Driven, Fueled, and Crashed.

Oh Colton Donavan how I love thee!  (sigh).

We all fell in love with the very cocky, very sexy, yet broken race car driver in the Driven series.  We loved Rylee and Colton’s story but there were moments where you just wanted to be inside Colton’s head.  We wanted to find out exactly what he was thinking, how he felt, what his emotions really were. Well K. Bromberg has given her fans what they want.  Raced is not a rewrite of the series in Colton’s POV.  This is a novella that contains some of our favorite scenes in Colton’s POV. 

When we first met Colton there was no doubt that he was as cocky and arrogant as the day is long.  But seeing his first meeting with Rylee you really see just how cocky he can be, because you now hear the thoughts in his head that were only meant for him.  You see his first reactions to her and what he wants to do to her.  And my God it just made me fall in love with him all over again.  As you read through the book and continue to see those key moments you see how Colton may have appeared, at times, to be cool and calm but underneath that coolness was still a broken man who was trying to cope with the strange feelings he was having.  We see his internal struggle with the feelings that he never wanted to have.  The feelings that he swore he was never capable of. 

In reading the trilogy we all know what happened to Colton, and we understood some of his actions because of it.  But there were still those moments where you questioned his motives.  And we get to see some of those moments in Raced.  Seeing it through his eyes gives you a whole new understanding as to why he did some of the things he did.

If you loved this series as much as I did then you are going to love this novella.  You will fall in love with Colton even more.  There are some heart felt moments that made me cry.  I loved that we even get to see one of his and Beck’s bromance moments.  You will not be disappointed.  Thank you K. Bromberg for giving us more Colton.  Another amazing job!

It’s more than obvious that we need to say our parting words and have a moment of silence for your dearly departed dick.”
“Shh!” he responds, trying to hold his pointer finger to his lips but his depth perception is so off I laugh when he tries several times to get it there despite his dead serious face. “A moment of silence is needed to kiss your unvoodooed ass goodbye.”
“You’re such an asshole,” I tell him but know I’m lucky to have him as my partner in crime.
“Shh!” he says again, and I give up. I take a deep breath and roll my eyes but humor him and remain silent. I swear he’s passed out but he’s still sitting at the edge of the chair and hasn’t fallen over.
But his eyes are still closed when a huge-ass grin turns his mouth up and he claps his hands together and rubs them. “Shit, that was easier than I thought.”
“What was?” My buzz is humming now and I’m finally relaxed after a fuck-all day with the Firestone guys and negotiations over shit they’re going to cave on in the end anyway.
“Getting you to admit you’re a kept man now.”

K. lives in Southern California with her husband and three children. When she needs a break from the daily chaos of her life, you can most likely find her on the treadmill or with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good, saucy book.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Her debut novels, DrivenFueled, and Crashed of The Driven Trilogy were well received and went on to become multi-platform bestsellers as well as landing on the New York Times and USA Today lists. Her other works include a short story, UnRaveled, and a companion piece to The Driven Trilogy titled Raced. She is currently working on two stand alones, Slow Burn and Sweet Ache, as well as an untitled novella to the Driven Series.
