ACED synopsis

Rylee and Colton’s ride continues…

One moment. Six years ago.

The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it’s the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart.

Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it’s slipping through my fingers?

How can one moment, when our world seemed so right, resurface and cause our perfect life to spiral out of control?

I can’t lose her.

She’s my checkered flag.

ACED review


It doesn’t really get much better than Colton and Rylee. Seriously. Those two are one of my all-time favorite book couples, and when I learned that K. Bromberg was going to be giving us one last full on glimpse into their story, I was thrilled. More than that, I was ready to see what she would have in store for those two. I was beyond curious to see what the events of this book would bring to Colton and Rylee, and though I did have some idea since the events of Aced take place between the two epilogues of Crashed, I was surprised and awed and just in love with everything I got from them in this book.

This book follows the after and the amazing, shocking, intense, and life altering things that can happen after that after. It shows how things can grow, how they can evolve and change, yet at the same time how they can be blissfully the same. It shows how the foundation of who you are as an individual and as a couple can see you through the highest and lowest of times, and how that foundation can become even stronger, even if it takes a few hard hits along the way. Aced is about marriage and healing and things coming your way that you never saw coming. It’s about speed bumps and what you do when you’re thrown off a course you never even thought you’d be on in the first place.

It’s about what happens after, the good and the bad, and how you handle it all. It’s about how the fight and fire that makes you who you are can see you through even the darkest of moments. Aced is about the utterly breathtaking moments life and love can bring you if you allow yourself to have it and if you’re willing to give yourself over to it.

Aced is about Colton and Rylee and the unforgettable love they share. It’s about the boys, it’s about healing, it’s about fight and overcoming the darkness that threatens to consume you. It’s about marriage and life and so much in between. Aced gives you everything that defines and makes The Driven Series so enrapturing and amazing to read, and it builds upon all of that in the best possible way. It gives you more from all of these characters in a way that makes sense and just fits.

I absolutely loved every word of this book and what it gave me of Colton and Rylee. It reaffirmed over and over again why this is one of my favorite series, and why they are such a dynamic and distinctive couple. It showed the most authentic, vulnerable, and real sides to their characters. It gave me them at some of their happiest moments, and some of their lowest, and in between I got every single well crafted bit of them. I was literally in awe of what I got from Colton and Rylee in Aced. I couldn’t get enough, and in the end I just wanted more because I loved every single thing I was getting from them.

There were so many moments in this book that melted me, that shocked me, that had my heart reeling and hurting and practically bursting because of what came Colton and Rylee’s way. There were moments that brought tears to my eyes from both blissful happiness and utter pain. So many moments in this book had me swooning and blushing and smiling like crazy because of what comes Colton and Rylee’s way. So many moments in this book exemplified who their characters really were, and had me mesmerized not only by what they go through, but how they handle it all.

Now you’ve probably caught on by this point that I am not going to tell you what happens in this outstanding book, at least not specifically. I’m not going to do that because you just need to go into this book and experience it for yourself. You need to jump back in heart first, into the thick of it all, and let the events and feelings and utterly breathtaking and intense and all-feeling moments of this book consume you. And I am telling you now…this book will consume you. It will take your heart and your minds and your feelings as you go along with Rylee and Colton as they face the events of this book.

I will say that things are not the easiest for Rylee and Colton in Aced. They face some tough challenges that neither of them saw coming. They both go on another evolution, not only as a couple, but as individuals as well. They have a bit of a fight in front of them in Aced, but what really makes this book so outstanding is seeing all that those two do to make it right, to fight through the pain and jump over the hurdles, and how through it all they are there for one another 100%. Seeing the lengths to which those two would go for one another, for others, and even for themselves in order to heal and get past it all to a good and happy place was everything.

Seeing that fight, that vulnerability, that openness and honesty at times in them exemplified so much about them and showed that they were in it to win it, and by winning it, I mean holding onto each other and their love with everything that they have.

K. Bromberg’s writing is one of my favorite author’s for a reason. She never fails to deliver a thoughtfully crafted story with so much varied and perfectly captured emotion. She creates such distinctive worlds and characters that win you over completely. Her writing put me in this story. I lived its events with Colton and Rylee, and felt every ounce of what it would be like to go through it all with them. She allowed me to be there, to live it, to breathe it, and to get it. She tackled some very real issues that happen in marriage and happen in that after we all so crave, and she did it in a way that did those issues and topics justice. She showed the power of love and conviction and healing, and the beautiful things that can happen when you have all three.

Her writing brought this series to life once again, and she let me jump into both Colton and Rylee’s wonderful and distinctive heads again in the most fantastic way. She let me fall in love with them both all over again, and I loved being with them and feeling so connected to them as they reached some major milestones in their lives. Aced brought them both to places they never thought they’d be, and I can’t say enough how much I loved being there with them through every single second of it.

Like any book by K. Bromberg, Aced gives you the perfect level of romance, passion, emotions and feels, with the best level of pull and suspense that has you epically captivated into what you’re reading. She gives you it all in Aced, and with her writing you get to experience it firsthand. Your heart will be so invested in everything that you’re reading with Colton and Rylee and the amazing supporting characters in their world. Reading this book felt like coming home in a way. Its pages welcomed me with open arms, and I loved every single moment I got between its pages. It was wonderful and intense and consuming to say the least, and in the end I knew I had just read one of my top reads for this year. You will read this book, it will give you so much and make you feel so much, and in the end you will be thrilled you got to experience it all.

Aced was a perfect addition to this series, bringing out the nuances and the many aspects that make Colton, Rylee, their story, and their world so unforgettable. This book pushes both of these characters, and it puts them through the wringer a bit, but it is all beyond worth it because of what it shows them, how it pushes them to fight and change and give it their all, and what it gives you as you experience it all first hand.

Colton and Rylee Donovan have one of the most all-feeling, mesmerizing, and intense love stories I have ever read. Their love is heated and passionate and real and immense, and it will fill your heart completely in this book. The events they face together as a couple in Aced will have you loving and rooting for them even more, and in the end you’ll be in love with everything you got from them in the phenomenal pages of this book. It truly doesn’t get better than this book.

Like I said, Aced follows what happens after. It’s real and it’s messy and it’s not always easy, but it is so very worth it and so very full of love and feeling and everything that makes love worth fighting for with everything you’ve got. The after you get in Aced is best after out there, and it will amaze you to say the least.

So get to reading and loving that after. Let the after in Aced give you everything it has. It would be wrong not to, because afters like the one you get in Aced are not to be missed. Ever.
