Sweet Ache (Driven #6) by K. Bromberg

Sweet Ache (Driven #6)

The New York Times bestselling author of Slow Burn turns up the heat when a sexy bet turns into so much more…

Hawkin Play, the bad boy rock star with a good guy heart, has lived a lifetime of cleaning up after his twin brother’s mistakes. Hunter’s most recent screw-up could land Hawke in jail and risk the band’s future. Hawke agrees to guest lecture at a local college to stay in the judge’s good graces—and a bet with his bandmate to seduce his sexy teaching assistant is icing on the cake.

Quinlan Westin is harder to bed than Hawke imagined. She knows his type and is determined to avoid the rocker at all costs—even if their attraction runs deeper than simple lust.

Just as Hawke might finally be winning over the girl, his brother has other plans. When Hunter realizes his twin finally has a weakness, he’ll stop at nothing to take advantage…

3.5 stars

Sweet Ache is a standalone apart of the Driven Series. You meet Quinlan (Colton’s Sister) in the earlier books.

Quin has not had much luck in the love department. Her past two relationships have ended with her finding out the guy was cheating on her. So she made a pack to just enjoy casual sex with no emotions and refuses to be anyone’s doormat. Romance in not on her horizon. When her mentor puts her face to face with Hawke all of that may change.

Hawke is the lead singer of Bent. When he was a child he was witness to a traumatic event that changed his life. Promises were made and he has done his very best to keep them, no matter what the consequences are. He was once told that love = weakness.  At what price will Hawke pay to protect his family?

When the two come face to face there is instant chemistry although he has a funny way of showing it. The sexual tension between them is off the charts and when they finally come together it is explosive! They definitely have no problem “fine tuning” things together!
It’s great to get a glimpse at Colton and Rylee in this book. Also, I LOVE that Kellan Kyle & Griffin make a cameo!!

This book is not my favorite in the series. The book is told in dual POV. That is great because you need to get in Hawke’s head to understand his past. It seems that Quin was always saying she was not a doormat but I feel that is exactly how Hawke would treat her and she would willingly take him back. There was also too much internal dialog and I found myself skimming through sections.
