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?

“Yeah. That’s one way to put it. Is there something else you called for besides trying to stick your nose in where it doesn’t belong?”
I open my mouth and then shut it, unsure how calling him because I just needed to hear his voice has devolved so quickly into this. Into me scrambling for words I can’t find to fix shit that doesn’t need fixing.
Because I don’t want this. Don’t want him.
“Well then, if you want to actually talk instead of pull this ridiculous bullshit, I’m here for you…but Had…? Whatever this is here…this passive aggressive crap? I don’t do too well with that. We had our one night. You made it quite clear you didn’t want anything more than that so you don’t get to call me up and question what I might or might not be doing with anybody else. You want no strings? Then cut the ties…but frankly I don’t think you know what the fuck you want so until you figure your shit out, I think it’s best that we say good night before we make a bad situation even worse.”
 “Wait!” Desperation rings in my voice in the single word. And I hate myself for sounding like this but I’m so lonely, so scared and just want the comfort I know he can bring me right now.
I wait for the sound of the dial tone to assault my ears. Wait for the incessant beep that reaffirms why I have barbed wire wrapped around my heart – painful but necessary. But there is nothing for a few moments until I hear the phone scrape against the stubble on his face.
And I wait…my throat burning with the tears I want to shed but am so sick of. The ones that no longer bring me comfort.
“I’m here, Haddie. I’m not going anywhere, okay?” The timbre of his voice carries his concern and sympathy to me through the line.
The incoherent sound I make is all I can offer in thank you to him for not hanging up on me. For not giving up on me.

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: March 2015

I stumbled across the Driven trilogy by Kristy Bromberg almost by accident, I had the first two books in the series on my kindle, when I finally dove into them, I was awestruck, the story, the characters, I fell in love with the world Bromberg had created, these beautifully flawed characters spoke to me in a way I wasn't prepared for and the rest as they say was history.

One thing that stood out for me in the Driven trilogy was how intrigued I was by the secondary characters Haddie and Becks, while they regularly provided comedic relief, the dedication they showed to Rylee and Colton was inspired, they perfectly complimented their best friends, the love and support and sometimes even the good old fashioned ribbing they gave added to the story.

When Kristy released word of Slow Burn being written I yelped with glee, this was a book I couldn't wait for, with that my expectations were high, I adored these characters but Bromberg not only met my expectations but she surpassed them, cementing herself as a must read author for me.

Haddie had always been fearless throughout the Driven trilogy but time and death change people, the happy go lucky girl we knew wasn't there anymore, left in her wake was a woman who lived for the day, and would never allow someone to get close to her and in turn allow herself to feel anything other than lust and primal attraction for someone else.
Death has a way of changing the way you view the world, sometimes for the better, but unfortunately it can also turn you off to experiences others take for granted.

Becks is everything and more I hoped for, Colton's sexy as sin best mate, equal parts dirty talker and knight in shining armour, he is the kind of man you want to take home to meet the parents and lock in your bedroom and chain to your bed all at the same time.

There's a simplistic beauty in Bromberg's writing, she effortlessly draws me in, EVERY SINGLE TIME. The story of Haddie and Becks is heart breakingly beautiful, in equal measures I wanted to shake some sense into Haddie and hold her while she cried, where this story could of been cliché - a story of a woman running scared and man strong enough to chase her, Bromberg proves why she is a USA Today and New York Times Best Seller, her story of love and lust, of courage and conviction, of strength and perseverance and most of all about second chances, had me invested, enraptured and hanging on every word, as the pages flew I was overwhelmed that their story was coming to an end, but so incredibly grateful for the journey.
