When I read a Kristy Bromberg novel I have certain expectations. The men will be hot, the storyline will be on the edge of your seat good, the heroine will be strong and the end will justify the means. That we will get an HEA.

With Hard Beat, I learned something new about Kristy Bromberg…that she is so skilled at her craft there is nothing she won’t accomplish with 26 letters and a bit of punctuation. There is no emotion she won’t touch, no ledge she won’t venture out on, no heart she won’t break, no fear she won’t tap into, no spirit she won’t enter, and no mending she won’t accomplish.

How do you:
Exceed the best, when the best happens to be you? Kristy does that.
Pour your heart and soul into the story you are telling? Kristy does that.
Create male heroes so enticing each one becomes a book boyfriend? Kristy does that.
Make heroines so strong each woman wants to be her? Kristy does that.

Yet, with Hard Beat she did something different. She stepped outside of her box, did not follow her norm, took a different path, and what she discovered at the end of the road was a story so compelling, a hero so chivalrous, a heroine so strong I was lost. Lost in the world of a war torn country, lost in the search for answers, and lost in Kristy’s world. These characters were different than who we normally expect from Kristy, but different is not bad and in this case it was outstanding. She displayed the ingenious that she consistently shows within the confines of a book binding.

As a journalism major and an ex-military wife, I understood every word, every line, and every paragraph. I felt the war torn country, I hunted for the story, I needed answers. Journalist always needed answers and photographers always want the visual.

Another fantastic story, you will fall in love with Tanner and Beaux no doubt. This story has a completely different background to anything I have read before, it has you going through so many emotions, ups and downs, OMGs and Ahhhhhs, but you have to take the rough with the smooth. Check out the synopsis and get reading!

K.Bromberg has done it again and captured all my emotions with this book. Another bestseller that’s for sure.

I LOVE K. Bromberg. I have read Colton and Rylee's story more than once. I've read all of the Driven series and simply fallen in love with her whole host of characters. All of work is 4-5 stars. This book just wasn't that for me. I've been patiently waiting for Tanner's story, since we first met him with Rylee and Colton's story. As a reporter, covering international news, I could only imagine what situations he would find himself in. While the other books in this series gave us both the H & h point of view - this book is entirely Tanner's point of view. Much of the book was Tanner's thoughts and inner dialogue. Sadly, I found myself skimming more than one page looking for conversations - interactions with other characters anything outside of his inner thoughts and demons. I am really sorry that we didn't get the chance to know Beaux better. I think the story would have felt richer / fuller if we had even the smallest glimpse into what she was thinking, feeling, going through.

I will always be one of K.Bromberg's biggest fans. I cannot wait to see what is next for Rylee and Colton. This book simply fell a little flat for me.

oh gosh, i actually feel bad writing this, but u didnt really care for this book. i love k bromberg and i love everything else she's written, but this book didn't do it for me. 1st, i found the story line and setting difficult to hold my interest. i was actually skimming through the 1st pages because i was frustrated and it was difficult to relate to bj. at about 60% through, i was able to get into it more and i appreciated the ending. i was anxously awaiting this release and have to say, i felt frustrated that i didnt love it like all the other driven books. here's hoping k's next does it for me because i generally love her writing and her books.

I wanted to read this story. I waited and waited. I just didn't connect with these characters. I didn't like beaux. I felt I didn't get enough time to like tanner. I didn't feel their connection with each other. Maybe it's because I loved this authors other books so much that my hopes were too high. This isn't a bad book. It's good. Just not the wonderful that I felt with the others.

I should probably start my review by stating have read everything K. Bromberg has put out- so I am a fangirl. I initially fell in love with her Driven series and now find my self greatly anticipating each of her books as they come out. Hard Beat was no exception. I could not wait!

Hard Beat is slightly different than most of her other books, because it's completely from the male perspective. I don't know why, but that both surprised and delighted me. It details the story of international journalist Tanner Thomas (who just happens to be the brother to Rylee Thomas- the main female character in the Driven series- but fear not- Hard Beat can be read as a stand-alone novel) and his new photojournalist Beaux "BJ" Croslyn. Tanner can't believe that WorldWide News would saddle him with a complete rookie in the middle east where they wait for stories to break. Tanner and Beaux's relationship both working and personal are tumultuous as Tanner strives to figure out just what Beaux is hiding from him while trying to keep her alive and in a war-riddled foreign country. I found myself trying to figure out what Beaux's "deal" was the whole book, likely because it was written in Tanner's point of view and not hers and soon found my self at the point of that delicious frustration that you get when you know that the truth is in the pages to come- but you just have to keep reading to find out what on earth is going on.

In my eyes, there is just something different about this book when compared to K. Bromberg's other books- and not in a bad way. I don't know if it is because the book was written entirely from Tanner's perspective or because of the gritty subject matter but I will tell you that I devoured this book in a little under 12 hours (always the sign of a great book) and it left me wanting more!
