A little over a month ago our blog was taken over by my girls over at A Book Whore’s Obsession. When we found out it was K.’s birthday today we started our tweeting with Colton (my book husband). Cara and I worked out a deal that we would swap back our blogs and bring you all the fun! Plus we are happy to host K. birthday party with so many amazing blogs! Be sure to click the link photo to go to the party and win tons of shit!!!
Now, I am well aware that the more I share my love for my husband the more I have to listen to some people claim he is theirs.. I will make myself clear.. I am a very good sharer HOWEVER I have claimed him AND K. has agreed I can have him. SOOOOO before you get your panties twisted (if she is reading this I know she is pissing herself) I am more than willing to allow you all to love him, stare, drool, pant, and allow you to claim him as your boyfriend! He is hot, he is rich, and he talks dirty!! HE IS MY GOD!!! I hope you all fall as deep in love as Cara and I are.. Trust me he is delicious.. I will post a teaser photo at the bottom for Fueled.. Yeah ummm BE PREPARED!
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?
So lets talk about Driven because HOLY SHIT!!!
WOW… hold on I am still panting… ummm yeah!! I can not begin to tell you my new found love for Colton, he is H-O-T, dominating, and just oozes sex appeal. There were parts of this book I was literally laughing out loud, and then parts were I needed a cold shower. I make it very well known that this is my EXACT book male type.
The story starts off with Rylee Thomas, she is at a charity event and she sees a couple backstage having what appears to be sex right in the hallway. In her attempt to avoid the couple, she gets locked in a closet. Her claustrophobia is setting it and she is trying to get out. When someone finally opens the door it is the Adonis racecar driver named Colton Donavan.
The attraction is instant and Rylee gives into her urges and they start going at it pretty hot and heavy until she realize that this is the same guy who was basically screwing some other girl in the hall, and she doesn’t even know his name! Then again, if I were Rylee I wouldn’t have given a crap, well maybe.. lol Their formal introduction is beyond hysterical and they have a funny verbal sparing match.
“You’re lucky I don’t drag you back in that storage closet I found you in and take what you offered. Make you cry out my name.” He nips softly at my ear, and I have to stifle the uncontrollable moan of desire that threatens to escape. “To fuck you and get you out of my system. Then move on.”
I loved Rylee’s character as a whole. She is not infantile, she has a secure job and she knows how to take care of herself. Rylee isn’t the typical virgin with the whole “take me away” mindset. She has been void of a lot of emotions as she is struggling with her own past. She is not the “one night stand” kind of girl; she has loved and knows that she deserves that kind of love and respect. Which is why I think I loved how she was so strong for a while against Colton. Her best friend Haddie is awesome too, she cracks me up and it is her who ultimately drives Rylee to give into Colton’s constant pursuit.
“I bet he fucks like he drives-a little reckless, pushing all the limits, and in it until the very last lap.”
Colton on the other hand has something very dark in his past, he doesn’t allow himself to love anyone. He is the complete ‘love em, and leave em’ guy. There is no second nights, no sleepovers, and he makes no apologies. Rylee is an enigma to him though, she stirs something within him and he knows he has to have her.
“If I want you, I can and will have you, at anytime and in anyplace, sweetheart.”
He pursues her, and warns her that he is going to hurt her. As much as Rylee tries to resist, he has gotten to her. There are some extremely tender moments between them, and I felt so much of their passion. I loved their banter, and how Colton does things for her just as much as I loved their heat. Rylee has a lot of insecurities when it comes to her self esteem, I felt that Colton really made that worse for her considering he was good looking, rich race car driver who can have anyone he wants. Even though he can and often did have anyone he lets her know just how much they don’t come close to what he sees in her.
“Not inconsequential, Rylee. You could never be inconsequential”
Sometimes Colton gave me the feeling of split personalities, but no matter which one was showing I was a fan of him. This is part of a trilogy so you know there has to be a climatic cliff hanger, but nothing that was too awful where you felt you were going to want to rip someone’s head off.
This book was my BOOKGASM of the week and I am counting down the days until I can get my hands on FUELED which comes out August 27th!! I will just say this, this book was sexy, fun, and amazeballs, so go grab yourself some spare panties and some wine, and get Driven!!!
Now we are NOT done yet, I am so beyond excited to let you all know that Schmexy Girls hung out with Colton Donavan the other day and we wanted to give you the real scoop!

Exclusive Colton Donavan Interview
We were so fortunate to get Colton Donavan to sit down with us for this EXCLUSIVE interview! I am a little nervous because well he is beyond gorgeous and he is really intimidating. We asked him to meet us at the beach he took Rylee to, hoping that it would allow for a more relaxed interview, and hopefully get some dirt out of him!!
Schmexy Girls: Well Hello Colton!! It is very nice to meet you.
Hello ladies. So nice to meet you. Dirt huh? I think enough of my dirt’s been spilled about my life in the past few fucking months don’t you?
Schmexy Girls: Now Colton we don’t think there could ever be enough dirt on you! Plus we kinda like our men dirty ;)
Oh you have no idea *stifles a chuckle* Dirty’s definitely good. Wet’s even better don’t you think? Sorry, I couldn’t resist. You walked in to that one.
Schmexy Girls:No worries, we can take it. We are so honored you took some time out of your very busy schedule to chat with us. Our girls at A Book Whores Obesession have taken over our blog and have no idea we are talking to you… We think they will be very disappointed they missed you! (as Amy scoots a bit closer to him)
As long as my heart’s fucking beating, I won’t turn down a meeting with lovely ladies such as yourself. Schmexy and Book Whores? Those are interesting names. Ry’s going to laugh at the thought of me being interviewed by a blog with the name whore in it. Especially considering the misinterpreted circumstances of how K. first introduced me into Driven. Fucking authors. So predictable for them to take something that wasn’t anything and write it with an implication to have their characters make a splash. I believe manwhore was the word used to refer to me because of that scene. So I guess you all are the perfect blogs to interview me. Shit, according to the rags I’m schmexy and supposedly a manwhore (well trying to be a reformed one). But let’s set the record straight – the alcove in the beginning – that scene? So not what you fucking think.
Schmexy Girls:Please forgive us if we are a little bit nervous, but it isn’t every day a famous racecar driver meets with us for an exclusive. Especially not one as schmexy as you!
C’mon, it’s just little ‘ol me…*grins* well maybe that’s not the correct adjective to use *raises eyebrows*. Don’t be nervous ladies. I put my pants on one leg at time like you do. How I take them off though depends on who exactly I’m with and what end game’s in sight *laughs*
Schmexy Girls:Ok lets get down to it shall we?
Fuck! I we’re only five minutes into this interview and you’re already propositioning me. I never would have expected that – you’re so respectable looking. Shit, but then again, so is Ry and look what she does to me.
Schmexy Girls:Oh Colton if only, but we don’t think Rylee would ever agree to come and hang out with us if we really did what we are really thinking (WINK)
Better watch it. Ryles has no problem fighting for what she wants. Talk about dirty? She’ll get down and dirty to fight for what’s hers in a heartbeat. And it’s so fucking hot!
Schmexy Girls:Hey that is why we said THINKING… we love Rylee too.
Thinking is allowed—as long as it’s dirty. Hey, we’ve got to stick to the theme right?
Schmexy Girls:So, when Rylee literally fell into your arms what was your first thought?
I thought she was a fan-girl wanting the notoriety of a one-nighter with me. Boy was I fucking wrong! And don’t repeat this, but being wrong – I know it’s a first for me to admit that so don’t get your panties all twisted over a man admitting he’s wrong—but that’s the best fucking kind of wrong I’ve ever been.
Schmexy Girls:How do you feel about the fact that she so blatantly did not want to pursue anything with you?
Shit *grins* What man doesn’t enjoy a good challenge now and again? Especially when every time that challenge walks away I get to look at that fine ass of hers. Fuck, I don’t know. It was frustrating and foreign. Who knew defiance could be so goddamn sexy? I mean the first time she lifted that chin of hers at me with that look of ‘dream on if you think you’re getting anything from me’ in her eyes – done deal. Challenge made. Game fucking on baby.
Schmexy Girls:We all love to play a little hard to get, glad to know you enjoy that (Wink) (Jesey smacks Amy and forces her to stop flirting) (Amy glares at Jesey)
You like it dirty and rough? Nnnniiicccce. My type of girls!
Schmexy Girls:What do you think ACE really stands for?
The dirty or the respectable version because ladies there are so many meanings in my head. You should see the ones Becks and I have come up with shooting the shit over a beer. Fucking hilarious. Shit, the best one ever though was a guess in my contest by Vanessa Copeland – Becks and died laughing over it. Awesome C*nt Eater was the guess. When I told Ry all she did was shrug her shoulders with a smirk and say “I’m not complaining.” So the real meaning? Who the fuck knows. I’ve heard K say that you’ll find out in Fueled but I won’t. See what I mean? Fucking temperamental authors.
Schmexy Girls:I know she almost gave you split personalities but don’t worry Colton, we loved you in Every. Single. One!
Don’t blame Ry for that one. Shit, it’s not her fault she tied my fucking balls in a knot and put a twist in my dick — yes, ladies it’s that large it can be tied in a knot…*laughs loud* — just fucking with you. Anyways, back to what I was saying. Don’t blame her. It’s not every day you meet a game changer when you’re used to being the player if you know what I mean.
Schmexy Girls:(Amy stuttering)I am sorry I am having a hard time concentrating again(Jesey pushes Amy off the chair and hands her a towel to wipe the drool)
tsk tsk tsk *shakes head* Amy, I think you need to be taught some self-control. Control could help you concentrate when *ahem* otherwise occupied *smirk*
Schmexy Girls:(Jesey jumps in)Ok Colton, we are going to play a little game. Are you up for it??
Up for it? Ladies I was born up for anything. *smirks*
Schmexy Girls:Ok I am going to say a word you say the first thing that comes to mind…
Here it goes…
Vice: Cotton Candy *grins*
Drink: Rum and Coke (I should plug Merit Rum here…so Merit Rum and Coke to be exact)
Love: Racing (well and sex, but that’s a fucking given…ha ha..pun intented)
Schmexy Girls:One last question, what do you think the future holds for you and Rylee?
The future’s a funny thing. One minute you have your life all mapped out – know the direction you’re going and just what exactly you want out of it – and the next minute, someone falls out of a damn storage closet and your perception of everything shifts and changes. Fucking crazy. So my future? Not really sure but I know that what I thought it was going to be and what I think it’s going to be are two completely different things. But if I have my say—get my way—it will be with a wavy haired, violet-eyed woman and her house full of little boys. Oh *grins* and a whole fucking lot of cotton candy!
Schmexy Girls:Oh I meant to ask, when is it again that K. is going give us a whole lot more dirt on you and what happens next between you and Rylee?
When? Shit the woman is a fountain of words when it comes to spilling the details of my life – good, bad, ugly, and uh, definitely steamy. I’ll be honest, I got a peak at Fueled the other day – the second book out on August 27th. All I can say is WOW. She really gutted me this time. Laid me out for everyone to fucking see some of the shit I never wanted exposed. I can’t blame her but that doesn’t mean I’m happy about it either. She got an earful from me after I read it. I will say though that I’m pretty fucking happy she told part of it from my point of view. Only a guy can express how a guy feels, you know? So she at least let me have a voice. But fuck….yeah, the first pages…she wrote some fucking honest, brutal shit.
Schmexy Girls:Thank you so much for meeting us Colton and we look forward to many more meetings in the future. Hopefully next time Rylee can come along as well!
Thanks for having me…you know how I hate this kind of shit so thanks for not being to intrusive and uh, treating me gently. *winks* even though you like it rough and dirty. *laughs out loud*
Schmexy Girls:We know what Book Whores Obsession and Schmexy Girls will be buying as a wedding gift if you get your way! Which lets be honest, you always do right?
Whoa…wedding? Let’s not be talking about shit like that yet. You can take the player from the game but fuck me if I’m sliding into home yet if you catch my drift. Baby steps ladies. Motherfucking baby steps. Shit. I need a drink after that comment. *Shakes his head* Weddings and shit? I can’t believe you went there. Let’s just say that first I have to get Ry to forgive me for how I acted at the end of Driven. Then we’ll see where it takes us – you’ll just have to read Fueled to figure that out…but shit, if the wedding gift you’re talking about is cotton candy? No worries, I’ve already ensured it a staple in my pantry from here on out.
Hot right?? I love him!!! So you want the book right?!?!
