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…
Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story. 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….
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.

Jessica's Review:

K. Bromberg has ultimately knocked it out of the park again with this one. Hard Beat is the story of Tanner Thomas and Beaux Croslyn. 

Tanner is back in the field reporting events and such over in the Middle East after the tragic loss of his best friend, ex lover and photographer. Being back in his old stomping ground and getting straight back into it all is hard for Tanner because he misses his old partner and the new one that his company sent him is driving him up the wall and not in a good way. After the one night the two shared without them knowing they were each other's partners, everything gets intense between Tanner & Beaux. Tanner tries to assert his authority but Beaux is there to push right back. These two had such a dynamic tug of war between them. 

K. Bromberg did such an amazing job producing a story for us with all the feels. I laughed, I wanted to cry from TT intense sadness over the loss of his friend and I smiled at how Beaux was able to bring him back to himself. These two characters were so beautifully written and put together. I literally read this book in one sitting. The chemistry was off the charts. They were steamy and hot. They infuriated you to no end as well. You would root for them and then hate the idea of them. Ultimately, I feel in love with the idea and love that developed between Tanner & Beaux. 

I can't wait to see what K. Bromberg is going to bring us next!

Sheraka's Review:
Hard Beat is another book that shows us Author K Bromberg is a fantastic writer!! We get to see things from Tanner’s point of view and how he has to jump out of his mind and back into the game after being gone from everything.

Tanner Thomas is a photographer in the war zone who lost his best friend, lover, photographer, go-to girl.  He was alone and lost in his mind of what happened.  He didn’t feel like he did enough to save her but he knows things like this happen.  When he’s finally somewhat back to where is needs to be to survive, in walks Beaux.

Beaux is feisty and goes after what she wants.  She the new photographer and she has no idea who Tanner is until after the semi night stand!! She has to prove herself not only to Tanner but I think to herself as well! She wants him and him her. Once the flood gates are open there is no going back for these two!!
I enjoyed watching the interaction and the decisions that each of them had to make!!
