Synopsis: The New York Times bestselling author of Slow Burn turns up the heat when a sexy bet turns into so much more…

Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a good guy heart, has lived a lifetime of cleaning up after his twin brother’s mistakes. Hunter’s most recent screw-up could land Hawke in jail and risk the band’s future. Hawke agrees to guest lecture at a local college to stay in the judge’s good graces—and a bet with his bandmate to seduce his sexy teaching assistant is icing on the cake.

Quinlan Westin is harder to bed than Hawke imagined. She knows his type and is determined to avoid the rocker at all costs—even if their attraction runs deeper than simple lust.

Just as Hawke might finally be winning over the girl, his brother has other plans. When Hunter realizes his twin finally has a weakness, he’ll stop at nothing to take advantage…

Review: 4 Stars - Sweet Ache is the sixth book in author K. Brombergs Driven Series. This title follows a character we’ve met earlier on in the series – Racecar driver Colton Donovan’s college student sister Quinlan Westin. She’s been a bright spot in her brother’s life and now it’s her turn to take the spotlight in the series I’ve come to love.

Quin can hold her own and she does just that when it comes to bad boy rock start Hawkin Play. Assigned as his TA - when he’s forced to “teach” a seminar at a local college - the two have a rocky first meeting. Quin’s tough, driven and sassy, which I think she gets in part to her big brother and wow, can this female lead hold her own! She has a great head on her shoulders and I couldn’t wait to learn more about her and see how she’d handle herself in her own book. Bromberg didn’t let me down and I was thrilled to see what happened when these two flirts met face to face.

Hawkin is one part of the famous group Bent. He’s the lead singer and along with all the pressures being a celebrity brings he’s got a bit more on his plate than just the female fans throwing themselves at him. He’s got layer upon layer that with each turn of the page I had to wonder if the guy was ever going to get a break! He’s lucky to have just met his match when he takes on the lecture he’s hoping will save not only himself but the band and his twin brother Hunter from utter devastation.

Written in the two characters points of view I loved watching the two react to each other together and apart and the chemistry they have is off the charts! And as they try to navigate all the issues being thrown at them, choices and changes happening right before their eyes, it was an eye opening experience for this reader just as much as it was for the characters.

The author has done a pretty fantastic job in making these two characters and the secondary characters as well have more to them than meets the eye. And the story was highly entertaining with a bit of heartbreak thrown in throughout to give readers so much more than the usual love story. Bromberg has proven yet again that she’s a master for creating and delivering damaged characters with so many redeeming qualities that you never feel as if you’ll get enough.

And with Quin being Colton’s sister I was excited that he made a couple small appearances and there’s one scene between these two siblings that took my breath away. I reread it about 10 times because it was just THAT perfect. Honestly, I’ll NEVER look at a piece of paper the same way again.

As with all books in a series that you’ve come to love and authors who quickly become a favorite, you always are ready for more. And that’s how I am with the driven series and Mrs. Bromberg. She’s one of those authors that I’d read anything she writes so I’ll be excited to see what’s next – Hard Beat – the next book in the Drive Series out later this year. Also, I’m REALLY excited to be attending two signings with her in the next few weeks!!! Can’t wait! I highly recommend this series! Each book is amazingly well written and will leave a mark for a long time to come. Enjoy!
