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

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?

It seems like such a simple statement, but its meaning and the aftermath of the equation becoming unbalanced make that a life-changing declaration – one that alters and redefines a person’s…a family’s…a widow’s entire world, leaving them with survivor’s remorse, blinding rage, and an array of messy and dark emotions and thoughts, making it almost impossible to live in the present when the scars of the past dominate every single aspect of their lives.

Combust, the title of Grady Malone and Dylan McCoy’s story, is defined as someone or something being consumed by fire, and while its denotative meaning fits Grady’s profession and the main reason his life has imploded with guilt, fear, and doubt, its connotative meanings explore a variety of life moments that cause individuals to be monopolized by their emotions, whether it be dealing with self-doubt, a broken heart, or any number of life-altering events and circumstances.

When their story begins, Grady and Dylan wear their pain like a straightjacket. It’s all-consuming because their scars haven’t been dealt with; Grady refuses to live in the present because the loss and pain of the past is too great to move on from and Dylan flees her life in Los Angeles to lick her wounds and not give into the man who broke her heart. At first, neither are willing to confront their issues or the fallout of what occurred, but the more time Dylan and Grady spend together and the fake relationship they enter into when a certain cheater comes to make ‘amends’ with Dylan helps them to form a meaningful connection that starts to heal both of their open wounds and even the mental scars that have constantly tormented Grady since the accident two years ago.

‘Face everything and rise.’

This is only one of many valuable life lessons readers are reminded of in Grady and Dylan’s story, but it’s the one that most encompasses where they both need to get to in order to move on and be fully present in their lives instead of simply surviving and enduring. For Grady, this means learning to let go of his guilt over not being able to save Drew and finding a way to face the flames again after the damage they did the last time he confronted them. For Dylan, it’s not only dealing with her ex’s cheating ways, but it’s also finding a way to see herself as the beauty she is and finding her voice amidst the self-doubt and the recriminating comments from others as well as herself.

Out of all of the stories that I have read and adored by K. Bromberg, Combust might be my absolute favorite, partly because of the depth of the storyline and partly because of how complex the characters are. Bromberg slowly transforms and heals Grady and Dylan in the months that Dylan spends in Sunnyville, and because readers are provided both of their perspectives, we are able to witness the self-discovery they go through as they realize their worth, their purposes and their overwhelming feelings for each other.

K. Bromberg doesn’t make a happily ever after easy for Grady and Dylan, which is fitting due to the reality of their circumstances. But even though they both falter, at times, and maintain certain absolutes about their lives that no longer fit who they want to be and have become, they must realize those truths on their own because once they do, they will be able to reap the rewards of all of the lessons that they’ve learned as they’ve found their way back to who they truly are and the lives they were meant to lead.
