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…

K Bromberg is such an amazing romance author and I've loved the previous two books in this series. In high school, I was on the newspaper and I took a few journalism courses in college, so I was excited when I learned that this one was about a foreign war correspondent and his new photojournalist. 

Tanner Thomas lives for the thrill he gets reporting on foreign wars, but when he loses his best friend and photojournalist, he finds himself searching for that thrill more and more. More than ready to get back into the game of reporting in order to forget his pain, Tanner throws himself into finding his next big story. What he doesn't expect, though, is for his new photojournalist to be gorgeous yet completely aggravating at the same time. Tanner feels himself feeling extremely protective of Beaux, but the more they bicker, the more Tanner finds himself warming up to her. Beaux, though, has too many secrets and those secrets could end up putting their lives in jeopardy… 

From the moment Tanner met Beaux, I knew that this would be a fun read. There's nothing better than two characters who have such intense chemistry who utterly cannot stand each other. Of course, their chemistry will eventually give way to their hatred and they'll end up actually liking each other. It was fun to see Tanner slowly warm up to Beaux, even though she was obviously hiding something. 

Wow, this book had some twists that I definitely wasn't expecting! I mean, we knew Beaux was hiding something, but I had no idea what exactly she was hiding. I really enjoyed when they would go out and cover the war. The waiting around parts got a little boring, but the novel was just reflecting what their lives were really like as they waited for the big story to break. That gave Tanner and Beaux plenty of time to give into their intense attraction to one another and see how they really felt about each other. 

Overall, this was another solid romance from K Bromberg. And this time, form the guy's point of view, which was definitely interesting. I loved the journalistic aspects and the love-hate attraction between our two main characters. K Bromberg sure knows how to build the chemistry and the chemistry in Hard Beat is one you don't want to miss.
