ONE NIGHT. THAT’S ALL IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.
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?

He chuckles low and even, a sarcastic amusement woven through the sound that pisses me off. “What are you afraid of? Why is his offer so much more tempting than mine, huh? Oh, I know why,” he says, sarcasm dripping from his words. “He’ll walk away without any questions. But I won’t will I, Haddie? I have plenty of questions. The first one being what exactly are you running from?”
My eyes flash up to meet his, and the look – the moment that passes between us – is too honest, too raw. I have to break it. I can’t let him see the truths that even I’m trying to hide from. How I feel and what I need to fix me – the answer being him – because I’m not going to allow it to happen.
I can feel it. I can know it. But he can’t.
My mind flashes back momentarily to the night of the wedding. Of how I asked him – gave him no other option really –to take me to bed. Did I know then that unzipping my dress for him and inviting him between my legs would lead to this? Me wanting so much more? Me standing in the middle of his apartment wanting to ask for more but unable to because of the fears that are holding me hostage?
I’ll just say it. This book is amazing.
I’m so in love with the Driven Trilogy that I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t fall in love with Haddie and Becks the same way I fell in love with Rylee and Colton. But of course I shouldn’t have worried. Of course not. Because K. Bromberg knows just how to steal your heart, swell your emotions and sate your desires. This book has everything. After finishing I was a little speechless. I KNOW. THIS IS MONUMENTAL.
I flashed through every single emotion possible while reading this book. At times I felt like I was free-falling and that the bottom gave out; but then the world reappeared back under my feet in the most amazing of ways. Grab tissues, people.
I had no idea what the details of Haddie’s story would be, because I avoided reviews and spoilers like the plague, so I won’t ruin it for you. All that you need to know is that Haddie is struggling to recover from her sister’s death and she ends up in bed with Becks. It’s only supposed to be a one-time thing….but yet….but yet….what happens if it’s not?
Not that I was surprised, but it should be said: Slow Burn is incredibly well written. It’s thoughtful, it’s purposeful, it’s emotional. It’s undeniably clear that the words came from Kristy’s soul. It’s like she ripped off a piece of her heart, formed it into words and published it. Reading this book is an unbelievably emotional journey that left me speechless. I cried, I cheered, I fought for and against the characters, I was jealous, I was angry, I was elated…I was EVERYTHING. While all those emotions are great, I would have much preferred to have felt Becks. Like against the wall. because, um, delicious. he’s delicious.
In related news, my new favorite word is ‘cockstruck’. Get ready, it’s being used in my everyday vernacular. THANKS KRISTY. As per usual, K creates a world with catch phrases that will be used as hashtags for years to come. #heartsandheels; #luckycharms; #weare; #wasteitwisely; #pinkflipflops; #itstheclick
While of course I loved whenever Becks & Haddie were in a room (poolhouse/field/etc.) together, I also loved the interactions between Haddie & Rylee / Becks & Colton. In this book you get to see each character from a different perspective than what you remember from the Driven Trilogy. It’s pretty awesome. OH, and Ry & Colton are still adorable, in case you were wondering.
Overall, every single page and each piece of dialogue pushed the story forward, ultimately deepening your emotional connection to the characters. I fell in love with this story from the beginning and fell apart at the end. Amazing, Kristy, amazing.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing.
