Release Blitz + ARC Review: ‘Hard to Lose’ by K. Bromberg

Hard to Lose by K. Bromberg is now live!

Play Hard Series


New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, brings you a romance about love, forgiveness, and living every day to the fullest.

I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot–but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head.

But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student.

Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep.

I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden.

And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it.


There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment.

Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball.

After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.

The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too.

Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets.

Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.

But sometimes things are too good to be true… and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive. today on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Play, Kobo, Barnes & Noble!

Chase Kincade is next in K. Bromberg’s Play Hard series and I have to say (at the start) I was not as curious about her as with the other Kincade sisters. She was not about love and all about work. But now, after reading her emotional love story with Gunner, I am so happy she cracked her shell and found her happy ever after. And who better than a sexy veteran turned bar owner (who very sadly lost his baseball dream) to sweetly give Chase everything she didn’t know she needed. I was all over it from start to finish!

Hard to Lose is the fourth installment in Kristy’s Play Hard series and it focuses on the youngest Kincade sister. Chase is a business woman who is all about achieving her goals as a sports agent. She doesn’t have time for hearts and flowers. She has seen her three sisters settle and fall in love and she believes she doesn’t need that. Suddenly though she receives a letter from Ryan Camden, who sent it from the war zone years ago after losing his dream of becoming a professional baseball player. Now she is decided to find him, feeling a strange connection to this man she doesn’t know. Enter Gunner, who also happens to be the Ryan she is looking for (but she doesn’t know that). He is a sweetheart, he is gorgeous, and a man who is still suffering the consequences of war. Sparks fly and this relationship becomes so much more than either of them expected.

She’s heaven.
She’s hell.
She’s the temptation I can’t resist and the torture I willingly put myself through, so I can watch her come undone before I get mine.

Oh man.. I am a sucker for stories that are full of emotions and, in my opinion, K. Bromberg is one of the best at love stories that bring all these feels. I was not surprised this series continues to be amazing in that aspect and everything else it brings. I loved how Hard to Lose’s plot developed and the old/new crew of characters it has. Chase is just as wonderful as the rest of the Kincade sisters, a woman following her dreams, loving her incredible family and finally also finding her much deserved happiness. Gunner. Oh God, Gunner.. I LOVED HIM. He is the sweetest man, with a side of cocky and a heart of gold after everything he’s gone through, he is such an outstanding hero and the perfect match for Chase. I loved their banter, their burning chemistry and the unexpected but unstoppable emotional connection between them. This novel was such a pleasure to read and a wonderful addition to the series.

“We’re the only ones who can write our own story. Chase, the only person I want to write my happily ever after is with you.”

Therefore, I am rating Hard to Lose with 4.5 STARS because I loved this roller coaster of emotions from start to finish. I loved Chase and Gunner, as individuals and as a couple. I loved the sexual tension and the explosive chemistry. And I loved how their relationship turned into so much more. I am so glad these two souls found each other, healed together and found their happiness. It was very much deserved! And you want to know what else I am happy about? That this is not the last book in the series!! We are also getting Finn’s story and I am SO excited about it. I am sure Kristy will find the perfect woman who will change his ways forever. This series is SO WORTH IT!

The Author

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary romance novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow and her mind scattered in too many different directions.

Since publishing her first book on a whim in 2013, Kristy has sold over one and a half million copies of her books across eighteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over thirty times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by the streaming platform, Passionflix, with the first movie (Driven) out now.

With her imagination always in overdrive, she is currently scheming, plotting, and swooning over her latest hero. You can find out more about him or chat with Kristy on any of her social media accounts.
