    I Loved It

    Combust was a real, authentic, gripping story. This was my first K. Bromberg novel and I loved every word of it. It's a story about two people with emotional and physical scars, both insecure for entirely different reasons and how they helped each other overcome them and become something more to each other. This was Grady and Dylan's story and I loved these two well-developed, yet extremely complex characters. The sexy fireman riddled with guilt and scars and the curvy songwriter emotionally scarred and recovering from a breakup. These two were different yet so alike and I loved watching them fall for each other. There was a host of secondary characters who all played an integral role in the story and added a wealth of sage advice to the couple. "You don't drown by falling into the pool, you drown by refusing to swim out of it." "FEAR - Face Everything And Rise" This story was emotional and intense at times and it will give you all the feels. This couple's insecurities were so real it made them very much relatable and likable. This was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend this page-turner to all romance lovers. I absolutely loved it. *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.*

    Intense and Sexy!

    Combust... this book fits the title. Grady meets Dylan and let’s just say I’m intrigued. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started. We go deep, emotionally there are some issues both characters are working through. You laugh, you feel and Not to disappoint the intensity between the sheets. Woah baby! Grady Malone can put out my fire ! No spoilers!!! Be ready for these two Great read!

    Top read of the year!!!!

    "It’s okay to forget what hurt you, but just remember to never forget what it taught you.” There's books that come along that have me wrapped up to tightly in the story that I feel the pain and I feel the heartbreak. This was that book. Grady and Dylan both have scars, both have heartbreak and both needed each other more than they realized. I connected on so many levels with Dylan. While I may not be a songwriter, her personal issues hit me hard. The insecurities she has and the way she she's herself was like looking in a mirror. Alot of women who read this book will be able to identify with Dylan and her struggles. I definitely did and it made me cheer for her just that bit more to find that happiness we all deserve. Grady, oh Grady. While he is sinfully sexy and smooth talking on the outside, his pain was immense on the inside. He can't escape the memories of the past and it's keeping him from a future he so desperately wants. While I've never been in their shoes, being the family of a first responder must be nerve wracking. The Malones have a whole family of them so having his brothers and father there for him as support really is essential for Grady. But like Dylan, I wanted him to have that happiness he so deserved. And as they became roommates and their relationship slowly progressed, the happiness and love they brought out in each other was ... well it was everything.  "The weight of the world on his shoulders and a tiny piece of my heart in his pocket" I'll be rereading this book very soon, it's just one that sticks with you. An absolute 5 star read and favourite of the year.

    LOVE!!

    Combust was seriously so absolutely STUNNING! I CAN NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK ENOUGH, OMG! I am still struggling to form a proper thought after finishing this book. K. Bromberg brought out some SERIOUS feels in Combust! I knew this book would be emotional, I can't count the times I had that sinking feeling in my gut. I laughed. I cried. I swooned. There is just so many emotions, and my heart is deliriously full. I have always loved this authors work but Combust blows it out of the water for me! This is hands down my first best read of 2018! Grady and Dylan's story has completely stolen my heart. They were complex, vulnerabile, and completely raw characters. Each of their stories called to me from the start. The hurdles both characters faced was pure uplifting angst! They clicked on every level characters should. The chemistry was of the charts. The banter was easy and light. I seriously did NOT want this story to end. I'm completely entranced and craving MORE! This is one Firefighter romance that will burn its way into you heart! Dylan McCoy is one of those heroines you can't help but love. You picture yourself friending her in real life. She's far from perfect. She's insecure, vulnerable, and shy. All of which I found made her that much more relatable. She was this mass of raw vulnerability that was exactly what this story needed. Grady Malone scorched his way into my heart! He is hands down my favorite Malone. Say hello to your next book boyfriend! I have never swooned so much in my life! Grady pulled out every emotion a women could possibly feel. My heart ached for him so many times. He was a constant wave of emotion that leaves you breathless. 5 STARS WELL EARNED for this emotionally charged ride. *I voluntarily read a advanced copy.*

    Dylan and Grady - 5+++++ Stars

    A Review of Combust by K. Bromberg Dylan and Grady - 5+++++ Stars If you read the first book in this series, then you will have met Grady, as one of the three Malone boys. Grady is the youngest of the three men in the Malone family and as the firefighter, he has seen things that make him reluctant to commit to anyone. Dylan is a songwriter that has been working with her boyfriend for the last couple of years as his co-writer, helping him to make it to the big league. She has had her share of heartbreak in the past, with an absentee father. When her world is turned upside down, she leaves LA and thanks to her brother, makes her way to Sunnyville, where she will be rooming with an old friend of his. I don't want to spoil the book for others, but you really need to pick this book up as soon as you can. And, make sure you have a box of tissues around, you're gonna need them. This book is quintessential Bromberg style and will break your heart but put it back together in a way that you can't expect. I am sooo looking forward to Grayson's story, as I already love his character and he needs a woman that can handle him. Definitely a keeper. Favorite quotes: "Fear has two meanings, son. Forget everything and run. Or face everything and rise." This quote is so spot on that I don't know why I've never heard it before, but it is one that I will be posting on my wall to remember. “It’s okay to forget what hurt you, but just remember to never forget what it taught you.” **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**
