The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a story about finding love where you least expect it...

Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father, Colton Donavan’s, shadow.

Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.

Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

Down Shift is the latest standalone in K. Bromberg's Driven series. The characters in her three previous books don't connect with this, but I recommend reading the original Driven Trilogy to get to know Zander's story before he's an adult. 

Zander Donovan is the bad boy of Indy racing. Adopted son of legend Colton Donovan, he's untouchable. His tragic past collides with his present and he spirals into reckless actions and a deep depression.

Getty Caster is running from her old life, learning to live on her own independently. Getty and Zander meet while unknowingly staying at the same house. They learn to live with each other, fight with each other and subsequently fall in love. 

I was SO looking forward to Down Shift. Zander held a special place in my heart while reading Rylee and Colton's books. I loved Zander and his emotions. He's the broken hero we all love and he lives up to it. Getty, though. As much as I tried, I just couldn't connect with her. She comes from a well-to-do background, has daddy issues and an emotionally abusive ex-husband. I just didn't love her. 

I'm thinking (personally, in my humble opinion) that the Driven series needs to end. Driven, Crashed and Fueled were great. The subsequent spin-offs were just lacking. When it's taken me three days to get thirty percent into a book, it's hard to even want to finish it. That's how Down Shift was for me. I'm sure I'm the unpopular opinion here, but that's just me. I'm not discounting K. Bromberg's writing, it's smart and thoughtful. This story just didn't pull me like the originals did.

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 (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
