The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a standalone 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'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 can be read as a stand-alone book, even though its listed as #8 in the series. I haven't read any of the previous books and never felt lost while reading.
If you love your cookie cutter rom coms, then you would enjoy reading Down Shift by K. Bromberg. I think this would be what you call the perfect "summer read", I could have pictured myself reading it poolside with a nice cool glass of lemonade (or wine) and Down Shift in my hands. With the being said, Down Shift releases in October where in some states its already pretty nippy the weather. So maybe instead of a beach read, then it can be a cozy fireplace read, with your hot chocolate and soft blanket. Down Shift will help get you all warm and fuzzy inside.
I gave the book 3 trees because as I mentioned, its a cookie cutter read. It's your typical angst in the beginning, then hot and steamy in the middle and then all lovey-dovey in the end book. It was a nice read, but nothing that wowed me. I would recommend to those that enjoy a good romantic story. And Zander is a hottie!
