About CONTROL

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new story in her Everyday Heroes series…

Control is something Desi Whitman abhors. Why live life in black and white perfection when you can messily color outside the lines?

But when she comes face to face with SWAT officer Reznor Mayne, he’s about to show her just how good control can feel.

“K. Bromberg always delivers intelligently written, emotionally intense, sensual romance . . .”

My Review

Control – it’s interesting how one short word of only six letters can have such an array of meanings…such contradictory reactions.

Some people abhor control, preferring to run a bit wild and free, not really understanding one’s need to stay inside the box or to maintain a certain amount of decorum and responsibility while others need the structure…the routine…the guidance of right and wrong to ensure that life doesn’t become too difficult to handle.

Control, K. Bromberg’s newest release in her Everyday Heroes series, readers get Desi Whitman and Reznor Mayne’s story, and as much as these two seem to have opposing viewpoints when it comes to control, by the time their story ends, it’s clear that they find a way to meet in the middle and there’s never been a more electrically charged, sexually infused compromise than the one these two characters come to when they allow themselves to give into the sexual tension that starts to build from their very first, not so friendly encounter.

It’s quite the journey that these two characters take readers on, partly because of the personal baggage they have yet to fully deal with but also because it’s beyond clear that there’s an instant spark between them, which makes their beginning hesitation a bit frustrating for this romance reader, even if it’s understandable in some respects.

I love that Bromberg provides readers with both Desi and Reznor’s perspective. More and more, this is my favorite type of story to read because it provides me with the big picture – I’m able to hear their personal commentaries…their internal musings and it offers the small tidbits of information that are essential in order to understand everything that they’re saying and doing, even if it still makes me what to scream at times!

Desi and Reznor are strong characters – ones who do the things that they do because it’s what they need to do to both cope with past events and move forward in their lives, and while they definitely work together to help ease each other’s trauma, there’s parts of it that they themselves must only contend with and it’s those times where readers see what these two are truly made of and why Desi has finally found the guy for her, even if he does like to take a bit more control than she’s sometimes willing to give him;)

Excerpt

“I’ll tell you what, Desi Whitman. I think you’re a chicken. I think you hide behind your preconceived notions out of principle—or at least that’s what you label it, but fear is fear. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” My hands still and my eyes meet his in the reflection of the window in front of me. “The question is, how bad do you want it? How bad do you want to see where this might go between us? A few nights of sex? A few dates? Anything. Something. When will you push yourself to think that it’s okay?”

“I already told you, I know who I am, and I know what I want out of life.”

“You did…but that’s before you met someone who changed that.”

I spin around and glare at him. He’s thinking too much into this. “Down, boy. It’s sex. One time. That’s it.”

“Two times,” he counters and lifts his eyebrows.

“Two?”

“Sweetheart, we may not have been touching, but you can’t deny we f*cked each other across this space.” He points to his house and back, but his eyes never leave mine. “You can call it semantics. You can say it didn’t happen, but I’ll fight you on that. Watching you was hotter than hell. You came for me. And next time you do, I’ll be buried in you.”

His words evoke too many things I don’t want to think about but can’t seem to avoid thinking of late.

“That’s presumptuous,” I say simply, because I have nothing else to say.

His chuckle is back and so is that look in his eye that’s part challenge, part predator. “You’re only pushing me away because you know it’s good—we’re good—and you’re afraid you’re only going to like it more.”

“Why are you here, Reznor?” I shove my hands on my hips so I don’t reach out and touch him.

I can see him question which answer he should give. The one we both know—that he wants to sleep with me again—or the underlying reason. “You didn’t show up to class again.”

“And I called Bear ahead of time and let him know that something came up. That way you knew, he knew—”

“Why not walk across the yard and tell me?”

“Because I was…” avoiding you. Wanting you. Needing to keep my distance from you.

His smile is half-cocked. “That’s what I thought.” He takes a step toward me. “You want me as much as I want you…”

“I don’t—”

He holds his finger against my lips and says, “Shhh.” Our eyes hold as every part of my body vibrates from his touch. “I’m not a patient man, Desi…except when it comes to things I think are worth it.”

“Reznor—”

“Tell Jeff you’re off the market.” My spine stiffens at his order. “Because you’re worth it.”

And then, of course, the aftereffects of Reznor Mayne hit me—the flutter, the swoon, and the sag—as a smile slides across his lips and he dips his chin before walking out the back door without looking back.

The man is infuriating.

About K Bromberg

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.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled).
