* REVIEW * - Crashed (The Driven Trilogy #3) by K. Bromberg

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 5 Stars

Well I have officially crashed into this series and taken the checkered flag ...

When this book was released I had to wait a little while to read it because I wanted to go back over the series and re-read books one and two.  After finishing book one for the second time I realised why I had fallen in love with these books and dived straight into book two.  And even though I had read both of these books I was captivated all over again by Colten and Rylee’s story, there is nothing I didn't like about these books.

So onto book three.  I opened it up with trepidation because sometimes the final book in the series can be a fizzer and burn out.  The last couple of long awaited final books to a series I actually didn't end up finishing and that’s a shame.  Anyway not so with this book, it was full of highs and lows as we have come to expect from Colten and Rylee.  It was an emotional roller coaster ride and just as you are getting started and think they have reached the checkered flag or the finish line, something comes up to destroy everything they have worked together on to achieve.   We see a lot more of the support characters in this book and some I loved and some I detested, one in particular - Tawny.

Loved the double epilogue, the ending was perfection and I couldn't have wished for more.  Complete, perfect A-Z happy ever after ... ever!!!!   Five I f*cking race you checkered stars!!!

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments. 
Big moments. 
Little moments. 
And none of them are inconsequential. 

Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs. 
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
And none of them are insignificant. 

Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?
