“Bromberg is the master of making hearts race and pulses pound.” -Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author
Then You Happened, an all-new small town stand-alone romance from New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg, is available now!
Jack Sutton was the man I didn’t want to need.
His know-it-all attitude. His annoying suggestions. His outlook on life.
He was determined to help me while I had resolved to figure it out on my own.
But he taught me things I’d forgotten.
How to trust. How to believe in myself. Who I was.
I went and fell in love with him.
Tatum Knox was the disaster I should have walked away from.
Her ruined reputation. Her failing business. Her chaotic life.
She hated me at first sight and yet intrigued me all at the same time.
I was only supposed to be there six months.
I was supposed to use that time to make amends for things I’d done wrong.
Instead I fell in love with her.
They say it’s better to have loved and lost, then not to have loved at all. Does that hold true when the love is based on a lie to begin with?
(THEN YOU HAPPENED is a STANDALONE enemies to lovers, small town romance. Full-length at one hundred and seven thousand words)

“Just face it, Knox. You’re head over heels in love with me.” Jack finally smiles, dimple winking and those eyes lighting up as he takes a step toward me, holding the scoop to his chest. “You can’t be near me because you want me, and you can’t talk to me because you get all flustered and tongue-tied.”
“There is nothing about you I find attractive,” I lie.
He places the scoop in my hand but doesn’t let it go when I try to take it. “It’d be much easier and a whole lot less distracting if I could say the same of you.” He lets go of the scoop and dips the tip of his hat in an aw-shucks kind of way. “But I’m not one to lie.”
Our eyes hold across the short distance as his comment floats through the air and fades like the dust specks dancing in the sunlight.
“That won’t work, you know?” I say.
“You trying to charm me every time you want something. I know your kind, Jack Sutton, and I’m not impressed by them.”
“Is that so?” He shifts on his feet and adjusts his hat before re-crossing his arms over his chest. “And what kind is that?”
“A man who uses his good looks and smooth words to get his way with people. A man who turns on the charm to disguise it.”
His eyes darken and then narrow. “Just like you’re the woman who keeps living her privileged life . . . fiddling while Rome burns down around her?” he counters, making me want to scream that he knows nothing about me or how I live or what I’ve been through for the last year. A small part of me is shouting about how that was his point, but I tell the voice to shut up. “And if by good looks and smooth words, you’re implying I’m like Fletcher, I suggest you not infer that again.” That muscle in his jaw feathers in contempt.
“I’m not the woman you think I am.”
He twists his lips and stares at me in a way that feels like he is seeing right through me. It’s unnerving and unsettling, and I force myself not to look away because his silence is telling me that maybe he thinks I am.
I’m not sure why that bugs me. Why I want him to see me as someone different.
“I’m not even certain you know who that woman is either.”

|I do not read novels featuring Cowboys ….
I do not read plotlines with horses and cattle ….
But I read “Then You Happened” by K. Bromberg …
There are Cowboy’s in this book, lot’s of hot weather, horses and cattle so you might wonder about my first statement. While there might be all of these things inside this novel this is far from a “Cowboy Novel” simply because it’s written by Ms. Bromberg.
Thrown directly in the middle of an argument the reader will never want to stop reading because the story is capturing your full attention at all times.
I admit that it didn’t take me that long to guess certain things – but I really have a vivid imagination and read tons of books per year – so do not mind me when it comes to that. Also it does not really matter if you think you guessed something or not because the story will still not let you go as you want all the details. And for me the focus was really the leading characters first and the storyline second.
If you read books by this author before (and I highly recommend to do that) you will know that the writing is flawless and the characters are beautifully developed. In this special case I could almost feel the heat of a summer in Texas on my skin and that is a feature in itself as we have winter outside and it is (depressingly) raining nonstop. So if you want to feel warm and need something to light your mood that alone is a good reason to read this book.
Now, what can I say about the characters? Like the plot suggested – Tatum is a mess of epic proportions – partly characterwise because she has been burned in the past and also because of outside forces. Jack, on the other hand, seems to have an agenda – which is obvious from the first time the reader gets to meet him. But he is commanding attention wherever he goes and whatever he says.
Throwing these two into one pot is a combination so explosive that only a good writing style can handle the outcome. And I am positive the readers will love what Ms. Bromberg did.
So we had me commenting on the plot, the characters and the setting – which leaves me with the dislikes … and I really had to sleep on that and what I came up with was Jack’s sister (and this is no real spoiler as it gives nothing of the plot) – I really dislike Jack’s sister…. so much that I even wondered if this book would be a series and one of it would feature her …. HOW would the author make me like that woman? (And I have no doubt – with all her writing magic – Ms. Bromberg def. would make me love her)
Would I recommend this book? Yes without a doubt and I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.
