Oh Hey, Friday Favs

ZOMG I leave TOMORROW for my vacation!! I can't believe it's finally here. Surreal is the word I keep using when I talk abut my trip and I really don't think it'll feel real until I get on the plane Saturday afternoon!

My first three favs today are a three book series, all revolving around the same couple. The Driven Trilogy, I have read multiple times and I'm thinking a re-read will definitely happen again. There's A LOT of angst and sex, but a whole lot more swooniness and I just can't stop once I put it down. At 10:00 this morning, I'll be posting the cover reveal for a companion novella of multiple scenes from the main male leads POV. Gah! I can't wait to read it!!!

These started off as 4 stars for the first book because there's a HUGE cliffhanger and it's heart wrenching for me. Please don't let the cheesy closing lines in each synopsis keep you from giving this series a try. It's one that didn't jack up the prices after it became a NYT bestseller and I could addord to drop $11 on all three books in a weekend.

Luckily you don't have to buy the first one. I'll be giving away TWO copies of the first book, unless the same person wins and then I'll buy you eBook copies of one and two. Leave a comment on this post AND/OR the Cover Reveal post happening at 10 am today telling me why you NEED this series!! I'll be picking ONE from each comment section as long as you're someone I can reply to so make sure you're not a no-comment reply blogger!!

1. Fav Reading Series - Driven

Synopsis: Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…

I am the exception to the rule.

In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.

Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.

I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?

Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?

This is how you will feel at the end of the first book and need to move onto the next one IMMEDIATELY!

2. Fav Reading Series - Fueled

Synopsis: What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won't let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there's someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I'd never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I'll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can't be what she needs, so why can't I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

3. Fav Reading Series - Crashed

Synopsis: When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.
Big moments.
Little moments.
And none of them are inconsequential.
Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs.
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
And none of them are insignificant.
Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?
