Driven Book Review
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?
Driven Book Review
Oh boy! What I got myself into. I listened the audio of this while at work, it practically made me scream with laughter. This book is such a cliche, was this traditionally published? I like my cheese where it belongs in my food thank you. The plot is ridiculous, and again cheesy.
Driven is about Riley miss good and proper or so she says. She locks herself in a storage room to be rescued by this mozzarella stick of a man. This walking cheese stick was making out in the corridor with another girl before he moved to her. Miss good and proper starts making out with this guy ew! She comes into her senses and pushes him away.
The hero Colton there is no way a man beds women with those lines, it’s laughable! Do women consider this sexy? Seriously? He’s the usual cliche with a six-pack, because men without toned abs are not beautiful or sexy, he needs to have a six-pack. *roll eyes* he’s confident or so miss proper says a few of his classic lines:
“The best sex you’re going to have is with me?”
“You know I’m good with my hands.”
“And I have the right tools to give it to you.”
A confident man doesn’t have to say that, he doesn’t have too. On the contrary, it makes him sound insecure. His commentary during sex scenes was a major turn off. Will this man ever shut up! Silly man. The hero is written from a female point of view, how a woman thinks a man talks or acts. He sounded too feminine.
Nothing forgetting, that our lip biting heroine has three orgasms in a row. No wonder why women have such high expectations in men. What men have to put with it. Books take us to another world from real life, but this is unrealistic in it’s best. Or I’m living a boring life, I don’t know.
The sex scene was tastefully done, not pornographic the writer did well on this. The writing was good.
So, he bets on her to have a date with him, there is a contract (Fifty shades of grey?)And stalking. Stalking is so sexy such a turn on to be stalked around by a hot guy. Not! Restraining order! The usual he’s messed up, unwilling to commit, and the woman that will change him. Ugh! Oh he’s adopted (again, Fifty shades of grey?)
This is not the type of genre I would normally read/listen to. I chose this book for entertainment, to ease the boredom of my tedious work. It was entertaining. The soundtrack is also corny. If you run out of mozzarella for your pizza, you can put this book instead and you’re done.
In Driven, Riley knew what type of a man Colton is, he’s upfront with his painful dialogue still she sleeps with him hoping that she would have a relationship with him? To change him? He rejects her and what does she do? She sleeps with him, again. A doormat who whines, she’s getting hurt, then honey you had it coming. No sympathy. I liked his sister funnily enough despite the bitchiness. Meow! The ending was predictable.
