Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
When twenty-one-year-old Leah Carter's latest one night stand burglarizes her apartment, her roommate forces her to attend therapy for sex addicts. Leah insists she isn't a sex addict; she just doesn't do relationships. After all, sooner or later, everyone lets you down.
At first, the group sessions are little more than an education on how to be promiscuous. Until she meets the newest addict—blue eyes, killer body, and a smile that tempts relapse.
Psychology student Will McLean is posing as a fellow addict while researching a case study on unusual addictions. But the more he learns about Leah, the more certain he is that his desire to break through her walls and unearth her secrets has nothing to do with his assignment.
As the uncertainties spike alongside the sexual tension, the only thing Leah knows for sure is that falling in love would be disastrous. Too bad love might be one addiction she can't kick
Leah hated Thursdays. Specifically, she hated what she was forced to do on Thursdays—a program called ‘Heal the Heart, Save the Body,’ which was a convoluted way of saying ‘therapy for sex addicts.’
Despite her roommate’s insistence, Leah did not have a ‘sex problem.’ So she liked the occasional one night stand. So what? She was twenty-one and single. There was nothing wrong with wanting to make the most of it.
Yet here she was, preparing for another session where she’d have to listen to some old guy attempt to teach a room full of so-called sexual deviants the skills to function in a civilized world.
Because left to their own devices, they wouldn’t be able to resist the primal urge to hump everything that moved. Obviously.
Who decided sex was an addiction anyway? Or that someone should need therapy to “fix” it? Sex was good for you. It was a de-stresser. If it wasn’t, then you were doing it wrong.
She made a face at the platter of cookies set on an uneven seat a few feet away. She had tried one of them a few meetings ago, and it had nearly broken her tooth. They were sturdy enough to survive a nuclear apocalypse. They were cockroach cookies.
Maybe that was the key to these therapy sessions—to knock everyone out with stale confections so they were incapable of having sex.
Colina Brennan grew up in a small city, which gave her plenty of time to read and stretch her imagination. By day, she's attached to her kids, and by night, to her laptop. She writes about the fantastical and the romantic, and everything in between. Addicted to You is her first novel.

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
An orphaned, small-town, southern girl, held hostage by responsibility and self-doubt.
A Hollywood A-list mega-star, on the run from his latest scandal and with everything to lose.
A chance encounter that leads to an unlikely arrangement and epic love affair that will change them both forever.
When his co-star and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her married and much older director, A-list hottie, Jack Eversea, finds himself in sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina. Jack hopes the sultry southern heat in this tiny coastal Lowcountry town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend, but his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it. He doesn’t count on meeting Keri Ann Butler.
Keri Ann has relied on herself so long, dealing with her family’s death and the responsibilities of keeping up her family's historic mansion, that boys and certainly the meager offering of eligible boys in Butler Cove, have never figured into her equation. But fate has other plans. Suddenly face to face with the man who played the movie role of her favorite fictional character, Jack has Keri Ann yearning for everything she has previously avoided ... and Jack must decide whether this funny, sassy girl is worth changing his life for, before his mistakes catch up to him.
Jazz grabbed a poker from the fireplace, and we both skidded on sock feet to the front door. I looked out of the peephole, but with no lights on I couldn’t really see a thing.
“I can’t see anything,” I whispered, and then jumped back as another round of banging started.
“Keri Ann?” Jack’s voice shouted over the wind and rain.
“Oh my God.” I mouthed to Jazz.
Her eyes were wide.
“Do you think he got my message?”
“Shit, I don’t know,” she whispered back, her shoulders hunching up.
“Keri Ann? Please ... please open the door. I really need to talk to you.”
What the heck was he doing out there in the rain? Obviously, I was going to have to let him in. I could feel mortification and it’s crimson tide crawling up my chest to my neck.
Jazz shrugged with an apologetic ‘this is your mess, I have no clue how to help you here’ look on her face.
“Thanks!” I hissed at her.
“Keri Ann! Open the Goddamn door ... please?” Jack’s voice broke over the last word and my shoulders slumped.
Jazz rolled her eyes.
I opened the door as a huge gust of wind blew in and wrenched it out of my hands. It swung back hard banging against the wall. And there stood the tall looming shadow of Jack, hands on either side of the doorframe, in jeans and a dark wet t-shirt that clung to his body. Water streamed down his beautiful face.
“For the love of shrimp n’ grits, girl,” I heard Jazz murmur next to me as we both took in the archangel standing on the threshold. “Good luck.”

Over time they learn of each other’s secrets and realize they are both amazingly broken…

A. It made me really nervous because it’s my real name on the line now. Before, it’s up to the client to fix the story up. Now I had to do it myself.

"It's just rain toots, nothing to worry about," Jaxon said, walking behind me and cupping my shoulders.
I turned and smiled. "I know. We have it in Iowa too.”
“I know but you looked scared.”
“I’m not. By the way, thanks a lot for not bringing a bunch of drunk girls to the apartment the past few nights," I said.
Jaxon’s dead silence alerted me that there was another side to the story. My brown eyes turned suddenly fierce.
"Oh my god, are you kidding me?" I raged. "I should have known. I swear I should have known."
He looked at me as if to put me in my place. "Why does it matter? You do remember that you said we were just friends, don't you? You said to be quiet next time so I was," he said, crossing his arms. He sat and slouched in the wooden chair.
The statement made me pause. My face went stone cold. "Well, yes. But…"
There was always a "but" in my conversations. I had an uncanny way of changing my opinions at the flick of a switch.
"First, you want nothing to do with me. Then, you are angry that I was sleeping with other girls. Then, wasn't happy to not hear from me at all," he said. "You're f*cking messing with me."
I looked at Tiffany and Lance who were sitting in silence and exchanging worried looks.
"The only way you could be mad at me is if you liked me," Jaxon said. "Unless you…" A smile curved my lips. He pointed a finger toward me and grinned. "You do like me. You're just too chicken shit to tell me. I know your game."
"Hey, don't you ever liken me to poultry?" I said, feeling suddenly scared that the truth was out.

Genre: New Adult Romance
Steam Level: Super hot
Driven contains a bit of an exhausted theme (but a theme that I LOVE non the less) of arrogant and controlling billionaire meets a normal every day girl and decides to claim her for himself. It is done well and I loved the unique backdrop/setting of this story. It takes place in California where the hero Colton Donovan is a race car driver and Rylee works for a non-profit organization that helps orphaned boys. It was emotional and heart wrenching to see the work that Rylee does with these poor boys and I loved the scenes where Colton stepped in to help.
Rylee has rebuilt her structured world after it fell apart a couple of years ago but now everything she’s put back together is threatening to be torn down again. I liked Rylee, she is confident but vulnerable and she is doing her best to just keep moving forward. My only complaint about her is that she’s trying too hard to be what she thinks Colton wants, to keep him attracted to her, it bothered me she didn’t want to just be herself. She is so confused by Colton and his mixed signals.
“He gets me so worked up. So angry. I can’t figure out what I want to do more, punch him or fuck him.”
“He’s edgy and reckless and you want to go along for the ride hoping to get a glimpse of his tender side that breaks through every now and again. The bad boy with a touch of vulnerability who leaves you breathless and steals your heart.”
Colton is the ultimate in damaged but controlling alpha male. We learn a couple of his secrets in his this installment but he is still very much a mystery for the most part. He drove me a little crazy with his indecision and contractions’ over Rylee: I want you, I don’t want you, I want you but I will destroy you, etc. He really battles with himself over Rylee, but since the story is told in first person through Rylee we never get to see exactly why he can’t make up his mind. My favorite thing about Colton? His dirty mouth!
“I want to take my time with you, Rylee. I want to build you up nice and slow and sweet like you need. Push you to crash over that edge. And then I want to fuck you the way I need to. Fast and hard until you’re screaming my name. The way I’ve wanted to since you feel out of that storage closet and into my life.”
This book is impressively well written expect for a handful of typos. K. Bromberg has definitely grabbed my attention as a debut author and I will without a doubt be reading the rest of this series and anything else she writes. Be warned that this does end on a fairly painful cliffhanger!
A few part of the book are little slow and a lot of what happens if fairly predictable, but if you loved the Crossfire or 50 Shades book I have no doubt that you will enjoy this one as well.

I felt a finger under my chin, lifting my gaze back up to his eyes. “Hi,” he said. I couldn't quite hear his voice, but I could read his amazing lips under the strobe lights. God, he was beautiful, the type of beautiful that renders me temporarily speechless. I wasn’t sure how long I stood there searching for something to say, but it was long enough for me to completely forget my own name.
“I’m here with my boyfriend,” I finally blurted. It came out so quickly I wasn’t even sure he understood a word I said. Why did I always turn into a blabbering mess when I was nervous? Did I mention that when he smiled, two magnificent dimples appeared? Dammit.
I watched him look around and then he smiled. “I don’t see a boyfriend. Sorry, you’re going to have to come up with something a little better than that. Try again.” Who did this guy think he was?
I pressed my lips into a tight line. “No, I’m really here with my boyfriend. Right, Jade?” I turned around to pull her into the conversation, but she was gone. This was not going well. This mystery man had unnerved me by putting his hands on my body and flashing those incredible dimples and there was no one around to save me. I was stuck on the dance floor with a sexy stranger while my boyfriend and best friend were nowhere to be found. Ryan was probably sitting at the bar, slowly nursing his first beer, while Jade was doing God knows what with a guy whose name she would never know.
I hesitantly turned back toward him until our eyes met again. He seemed amused as he continued to smile down at me. “So do you want to keep dancing? Or can I buy you a drink?” He shouted over the music.
