“Bromberg is the master of making hearts race and pulses pound.” -Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author
Then You Happened, an all-new small town stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg, is available now!
Jack Sutton was the man I didn’t want to need.
His know-it-all attitude. His annoying suggestions. His outlook on life.
He was determined to help me while I had resolved to figure it out on my own.
But he taught me things I’d forgotten.
How to trust. How to believe in myself. Who I was.
I went and fell in love with him.
Tatum Knox was the disaster I should have walked away from.
Her ruined reputation. Her failing business. Her chaotic life.
She hated me at first sight and yet intrigued me all at the same time.
I was only supposed to be there six months.
I was supposed to use that time to make amends for things I’d done wrong.
Instead I fell in love with her.
They say it’s better to have loved and lost, then not to have loved at all. Does that hold true when the love is based on a lie to begin with?
(THEN YOU HAPPENED is a STANDALONE enemies to lovers, small town romance. Full-length at one hundred and seven thousand words)

The Prologue to Then You Happened, K. Bromberg’s newest release, is incredibly powerful, illustrating what a person is willing to do to be able to choose who and what she wants in life, but Tatum Valor’s choice costs her way more than she ever thought possible and with one decision, she redefined her life in ways that she might not come back from, because six years later, she only has overwhelming heartache and loneliness as well as a multitude of failures that might truly leave her with nothing and no one.
But then you happened…
In both good ways and bad, this becomes Tate and Jack’s mantra as they contend with a litany of issues, both personal and professional, as well as deal with their internal torments that only seem to intensify the more time these two spend together, and once secret agendas and truths are finally revealed, it’s unclear if they will see their connection as the best or worse thing to happen to them.
I have to be honest…Jack and Tate frustrated the heck out of me, and my feelings for both of them, but especially Tate, fluctuated based on the amount of over-the-top actions and reactions she had compared to the scenes where she seemed willing to listen…willing to work together with Jack, not against him.
The fact that both Jack and Tate are more than a little headstrong may play into their banter and the sexual tension that builds between them, but it felt like they acted without thinking way too much and then when they finally figured out a way to communicate, their reactions didn’t seem to fit the situations nor did they seem to be argue about important issues or concerns. I get that when emotions are high, the worst can be brought out, but after everything that both of them had been through, it would have liked to see them work to not make the same mistakes.
K. Bromberg creates quite the small town feel in Lone Star, Texas, especially when it comes to the busybodies and gossipers. These townspeople may feel like they’re doing nothing wrong, but when they don’t know whether they’re spreading facts or spreading lies, they definitely have a knack for causing way more trouble than happiness.
Even though I had my ups and downs with Tate and Jack’s story, I really liked how Bromberg resolved her characters’ issues and gave them exactly what they wanted and needed after struggling for so long.
4 Poison Apples
“Just face it, Knox. You’re head over heels in love with me.” Jack finally smiles, dimple winking and those eyes lighting up as he takes a step toward me, holding the scoop to his chest. “You can’t be near me because you want me, and you can’t talk to me because you get all flustered and tongue-tied.”
“There is nothing about you I find attractive,” I lie.
He places the scoop in my hand but doesn’t let it go when I try to take it. “It’d be much easier and a whole lot less distracting if I could say the same of you.” He lets go of the scoop and dips the tip of his hat in an aw-shucks kind of way. “But I’m not one to lie.”
Our eyes hold across the short distance as his comment floats through the air and fades like the dust specks dancing in the sunlight.
“That won’t work, you know?” I say.
“You trying to charm me every time you want something. I know your kind, Jack Sutton, and I’m not impressed by them.”
“Is that so?” He shifts on his feet and adjusts his hat before re-crossing his arms over his chest. “And what kind is that?”
“A man who uses his good looks and smooth words to get his way with people. A man who turns on the charm to disguise it.”
His eyes darken and then narrow. “Just like you’re the woman who keeps living her privileged life . . . fiddling while Rome burns down around her?” he counters, making me want to scream that he knows nothing about me or how I live or what I’ve been through for the last year. A small part of me is shouting about how that was his point, but I tell the voice to shut up. “And if by good looks and smooth words, you’re implying I’m like Fletcher, I suggest you not infer that again.” That muscle in his jaw feathers in contempt.
“I’m not the woman you think I am.”
He twists his lips and stares at me in a way that feels like he is seeing right through me. It’s unnerving and unsettling, and I force myself not to look away because his silence is telling me that maybe he thinks I am.
I’m not sure why that bugs me. Why I want him to see me as someone different.
“I’m not even certain you know who that woman is either.”
