My rating: 5 of 5 stars
At 12:30 last night, I was finishing another book and realized that Crashed had downloaded to my Kindle. I started it and kept on going. I was eagerly anticipating the final installment to this trilogy. It was one of my most anticipated books of 2014. To say that Colton and Rylee were stuck in my head is a gross understatement. Crashed provides an emotional ending to a fabulous series and I couldn't be happier with it.
The ending of Fueled with the chanting of "Spiderman. Batman. Superman. Ironman," truly gutted me. I was left in a raw state worried that it was going to be a long time before Crashed was out. Crashed picks up where Fueled left off and Rylee and Colton once again have to navigate through some ridiculously difficult times. The crash is just the start of things going from bad to worse for the pair. I don't want to give too much away but the heartache feels like it will never end for awhile. There are moments when I want to throttle Colton, I laugh at him and then I turn around and feel absolutely heartbroken for him.
Colton's baggage is still front and center in this book and I love the journey he goes on to overcome his past. Some of my favorite parts are when his father confronts him after all these years and doesn't hold back in telling Colton what he needs to hear. I also adore Becks and when he rips into Colton to try to get him to understand the crossroads he is standing at is hands down one of my favorite scenes.
"She's worth the fight, dude. Worth every goddamn fear eating at you. Every piece of it, Colton - A to motherfucking Z." Time to deal with your past, because Rylee, she's your goddamn future. It's fight or flight time, man. Let's just hope you're the man I've always thought you were."
Rylee was exactly what I needed in this book. After everything she has been through, she was steadfast, loyal, committed and refused to give up. Colton needed that especially in this book. It was fantastic to see her really get her footing in their relationship and feel solid in knowing how Colton felt about her after the wild ride in the first two books. She wants Colton, bent and broken, and never falters in her commitment. It was beautiful to read.
The ending and epilogues were perfect. Some of lines that were written between Colton and Rylee at the end sum up their relationship beautifully. Not to sound like a sappy romantic but these two deserved their HEA. It was awesome to read where they all stand so many years later and it put one big smile on my face. K. Bromberg congrats on a fantastic conclusion to the Driven Trilogy. You outdid yourself! Looking forward to Becks and Haddie!
