Combust - K. Bromberg - Review Tour

Combust, an all new sexy and emotional standalone by K. Bromberg is NOW AVAILABLE!

From New York Times Bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes the second standalone book in the Everyday Heroes series. Just how hot will firefighter Grady Malone turn up the heat?

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.

By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someone else.

By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete.

By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.

When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.

That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars—the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.

When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?

Combust is the second title in the Everyday Heroes series, but in my opinion it could easily be read as a standalone.  Combust is a slow burn romance, of two slightly battered souls who form a friendship, and in the process find peace and solace from the pain of the past.  that features Dylan McCoy and Grady Malone.

Although this is the second title in the Everyday Heroes series, the story line is not quite as confronting,  and in true Kristy Bromberg fashion Combust is packed full of emotion, with heartbreak, hurt and loss.  But there were also moments of levity, and humour, heat, heart and steam.  I went through a gamut of emotions from everything from giggles, to smiles, to tears.    I adored the strong friendship and bond that formed and the camaraderie that Grady and Dylan share. 

Dylan is a song writer, she’s sweet, sexy and reserved and flusters very easily.  She’s incredibly endearing, and very relatable, I could see myself in this shy, curvy, reserved and self-conscious character. 

“When I’m with you, I forget the bad.”

Grady, much like the other members of his family serves to protect, being a fire fighter.  He’s just what your looking for in a book boyfriend.   He’s kind, considerate, thoughtful, and sweet.  Despite the fact that he is honest, he hides behind his charismatic, and cheerful demeanour, he avoids the source of his shame and vulnerability.   Grady is endearing and curious, and has a tendency to use humour to diffuse situations that are uncomfortable or fraught with tension or angst. 

Both characters are quite similar in the fact that they feel inadequate and suffer from insecurities that revolve around their appearance.  Their fears hold them back, in each other’s arms they don’t let their fears control their thoughts, feelings and actions.  

“Face everything and rise”

Their banter is fun and teasing, full of flirtatious remarks, and sexual innuendo.  Despite the fact that their attraction in undeniable, hurt and scars of the past hold them back.  At times the chemistry this pair share is palpable.  The connection they share is believable and the love scenes are very hot and steamy.

“We all have scars. Some are visible. Some aren’t. In the end, they represent the fact that you’re stronger now than whatever tried to hurt you.”

I loved the cameo appearances of Grant, Greyson, Emerson and Desi and cannot wait for the next title in this well written and captivating series.  Honestly some of the subject matter in Cuffed was not easy to read, but Combust although emotional and poignant also has light hearted moments, that had me reading this book in just one sitting.  

“I want to be the part that revolves around you. I want to be the one who grounds you so we’re forced to come home to each other, even when we’re mad. I want to provide the arms that hug you and the hands that hold yours through whatever adventure awaits us. I want you and whatever the two of us decide we want for our future.”

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book in 2013, Kristy has sold over one million copies of her books across sixteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by Passionflix with the first movie slated to release in the summer of 2018.

She is currently working on her Everyday Heroes trilogy. This series consists of three complete standalone novels—Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit (late spring 2018)—and is about three brothers who are emergency responders, the jobs that call to them, and the women who challenge them.
