Review 'Hard Beat' by K. Bromberg the New York Times bestselling author of 'Sweet Ache' comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can't be sated...

Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story.

But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…

With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.

He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out…

This book is available at Amazon UK, Amazon US and Barnes & Noble

My Review:

When I received ‘Hard Beat’ by K. Bromberg a view weeks ago, I was super excited. ‘Hard Beat’ is the seventh book in the Driven series, and the third book by K. Bromberg I was going to read. Since I really loved ‘Slow Burn’ and ‘Sweet Ache’, I couldn’t wait to start reading this one.

In 'Hard Beat' we meet Tanner Thomas, a successful journalist who lives for the thrill of finding a good story. At least that was the case until he lost his best friend because he couldn't keep her safe. Now Tanner is determined to get the thrill back and forget all the bad stuff that happened. But Tanner isn't prepared for Beaux, a beautiful photographer that makes him feel things he never expected to feel. But Beaux is keeping secrets and soon those secrets are chancing everything.

Ever since I read 'Slow Burn' I love K. Bromberg's writing. Something about her stories just makes me want to keep reading and never stop. The characters she creates are intense, and impossible to forget. 'Hard Beat' isn't an exception. This book was amazing from the start and I wanted it to go on forever. 

Tanner and Beaux are a great couple to read about! They fight, they argue and they make up! And above all they make each other laugh and they can talk about everything. I loved getting to know them. 
But what I loved most about this book was the whole journalist, and being in a war zone stuff. It was just so original and it really kept me on my toes because I was so scared of things going wrong. 
Especially near the end of the book, there was a lot of stuff happening and it felt like I was inside this roller-coaster. Although I had a feeling about one of the characters from the beginning, I really didn’t expect this ending and it was really good.

My favorite character was definitely Tanner. I just loved his personality and the way he acted when he realized he may be feeling a little more for Beaux than he wanted. I loved those fights between them! LOL!! It was just so good to read. And Tanner definitely created a lot of hot scenes in this book.
Yep, this was definitely another amazing book. K. Bromberg is definitely able to make you forget the world around you. 

My Rating:

About the Author:

K. Bromberg was born and raised in Southern California. She graduated from University of California at San Diego with two bachelors-economics and political science-but always loved to write.

K. Bromberg remains in Southern California with her husband and their three young children. When not writing or working her day job, she can be found playing ninjas or power rangers with her son, fixing the hair of her oldest daughter's American girl doll, or doing 'arts and crafts' with her youngest daughter, or listening to any or all of them fight/whine/laugh at once. When she needs a break from the daily chaos, you can almost always find her with Kindle in hand, devouring the pages of a good book or mentally outlining her next set of characters.
