You know when you read a book and it leaves you breathless and your tummy feels like it's in knots?!? That's exactly what Down Shift did to me, right from the first page. The prologue pulls some tough punches. Zander has made a lot of mistakes, he has pushed Colton & Rylee his parents away, his brothers, lost his team & his car. And it all comes to a head when he is confronted by his dad who gives him an ultimatum "Take the time Zee. Fix what you need to fix. Deal with whatever s*** you need to deal with. Let someone in instead of shutting everyone out. Use the time to make you right. Don't come back until you are."
Zander hasn't had the easiest life and he hasn't really dealt with any of his demons. He has lost his place on the team, the one thing that gives him the adrenaline he craves everyday. So he leaves to go and stay at a friends place to fix his mistakes & rebuild his life. It's here that he meets the beautiful, brown eyed broken Getty. She is running, trying to start over in life after years of being controlled by her father and ex husband.
The chemistry between them was intense as they pushed each other's buttons and boundaries. But they were supposed to be finding out who they are, fixing their mistakes, and Getty was determined to start a fresh new life. They are each a complication in each other's lives. Zander doesn't need Getty getting into his thoughts. But she is slowly starting to soften his hard heart.
"You complicate things, Getty. Because there is something about you that continually reminds me why I came here."
You could feel the attraction between them, could hear the thump thump of their hearts every time they came close to giving into their desire.
"Right now every damn part of me wants to kiss you again. Kiss you till we can't breathe, then lay you down on my bed and show you what it's like to feel that kind of worship."
When things from their past start to collide with their future, they have to take a step back and figure out what it is they want. Zander has to go back and make things right with his family and his team. Getty has to try and stand on her own two feet without Zander, continue to grow with confidence.
"Even if you gave me a hundred reasons why we shouldn't be together, Getty, I'd still look for that one reason to fight like hell for you. Remember that."
Zander and Getty were two broken souls, trying to find who they were in the world. There were many times I had tears streaming down my face & my heart broke for them both. For everything they had been through & for what life continued to throw at them.
When Kirsty Bromberg writes a book you better be prepared for all the feels & emotions that she will pull from you. She will make you cry, you will get angry, there will be a time or two you want to throw your kindle out the window. But she will also make you fall in love, and not the ordinary kind of love, but the EPIC kind. Because that's what Getty & Zander had, an epic love. It only comes along once in a life time, but when he does you grab it And.Never.Let.Go!
Down Shift is hands down one of the best books I've read in 2016 & if I could give it more than 5 stars I would.
Although I enjoyed the story there were a few things that my logical mind couldn't accept, one being that Getty didn't even mention getting her trust funds back from her father or any divorce settlement from her very rich husband - really as if!!!
Furthermore the fact that Zander appeared to now be approximately 28, would Colton be a little old to still be racing? Would have liked to know a bit more of their life now. On the whole though I enjoyed the read but my pet hate is a short epilogue and this was very short. They were together- the end really. Would have liked more about Getty settling into Zander' s life etc.and how her career went, guess I'm getting too picky.
He grew up to be the man I always expected him to be with a Dad like Colton.
This is the one book from the Driven series I couldn't wait to read, and it didn't disappoint.
We first met Zander in Driven, as a broken, silent and traumatised little seven year old boy.
Well he's come along way since then, he's grown in to beautiful sexy hot man ... much like his Dad.
With his career as racing car driver hitting its peak, he still as issues to be dealt with from the first seven years of his live. And just like it all comes tumbling down !
He seeks solitude to work through his problems and this is where he meets Getty, she's has her own issues she's running away from. Her background is just as traumatizing.
Loved Getty's strength, a wonderful character. The chemistry is instant between these two and builds into some super hot sex scenes !
I don't want to say anymore about the story, that you need to discover yourself.
This is a book is about two broken (in different ways) people who somehow find trust and friendship with one another and eventually ' just jump' in to helping each other to heal.
It a beautiful emotional book and as always with Kristy Bromberg it's beautiful written.
If this is the last book we get from this series .... Well, all I can say is It finished on a high. Superb !
