From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…

But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…

With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.

He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out….

An Excerpt from Hard Beat

The tension in the car between us thickens. The current of desire is so palpable, I feel like it kick-starts my heart every other beat. I blow out a breath as the elevator ascends, Beaux shifting her feet beside me.

“Did I do something wrong?”

I snort. Fuck, yes. But where do I even begin to explain? You made me want you? You made me worry when I told myself I wasn’t going to put myself in that situation ever again? You fucking don’t ever listen about not going off on your own? I want you so goddamn bad right now that the desire is so sharp, it’s painful.

The elevator dings, and I stride off the car to her door without looking back to see if she’s following. My body just knows she is.

It takes her a moment to fumble with her bag, get her room key out, and open her door, all the while casting curious glances my way.

“Put the camera down,” I order the minute we’re inside the door and it’s shut.

“What is your problem—?” she asks, but the question is cut off the second the camera strap leaves her hand, my body crashing into hers and pushing her up against the wall behind her. My lips find hers instantly.

It takes her a millisecond for the shock to fade and for her to respond, but once she does, we meet in a savage union of frenzied hands gripping, mouths taking, bodies begging to join in every way possible.

Beaux weaves her fingers in my hair and holds tight as she tears her mouth momentarily from mine. “I thought you were pissed at me.”

I kiss her fiercely, all tongue and teeth and possession, before I respond. “I’m furious. But I want you more.” It’s as true a statement as I’ve ever given, the moment stripping away any superfluous words. “You came back to me.”

“I’ll always come back to you,” she says, her voice breathless but resolute.

 

My Review

Tanner Thomas is a well known foreign war correspondent who is just getting back on the job after losing his best friend and photographer when a group of men opened fire on the market where she was shopping. The last thing he needs now is to train a new photojournalist, especially one with a big attitude. Beaux Croslyn is hiding something but Tanner cant figure out what it is. Can these two learn to work together and get the story or are they going to butt heads at every turn??

Tanner is itching to get back to work and back in the action. After two and a half months of going stir crazy, its time.  His first night back and the other reporters decide on having a celebration at the bar to welcome him back. The beautiful woman at the end of the bar keeps staring and finally walks over for a drink. Tanner’s usual cockiness has him pushing her away, but a few cocky comments later and the next thing he knows hes in bed with her. The next morning he is to meet up with his new photojournalist and he is not thrilled about replacing Stella so soon. Imagine his surprise when the beautiful woman from last night walks in and introduces herself.  How is he going to get through the next few hours let alone weeks or months with this infuriating woman??

Beaux knew who Tanner was from across the bar. She knew she was asking for trouble when she walked up to him but she couldn’t resist. Hes the one every other man in the room hates and yet wants to be at the same time. The one who always gets the jump on the good stories. Hes also a cocky jerk. But for some reason she finds herself attracted to him nonetheless. Imagine her surprise when she finds out her new job is being his photojournalist!! She is not one to back down from any situation or fight, and boy does this man like to start arguments. How is she ever going to get along with a man who is constantly pushing her buttons??

I LOVED these two!! The constant back and forth and fighting between them, then the undeniable attraction for each other. I Love how sassy Beaux is, always standing her ground against Tanners constant arrogant attitude.  When Tanner finally comes around, these two are awesome together!! I swear Iwas sucked in from the first page. This didn’t feel like a work of fiction, it felt like I was feeling everything they did as it happened. The twists and turns had me yelling at my Kindle and swearing like a sailor, and then crying like a baby. What a fantastic read!!  I give Hard Beat by K. Bromberg 4.5 HUGE Stars!! love, Love, LOVE!!
