#Romance #Review Driven by Lori Sjoberg

Title: Driven
Author: Lori Sjoberg
Rating: 4.5 Stars

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last. I fell in love with Mason and Kayla. They really were made for each other and I wanted to see them get their HEA.

I enjoyed the set up of this novel, and to be honest it was what led me to downloading it in the first place. Mason wasn't what I expected, or what Kayla expected. The first time we meet him in the story he comes off cocky and not all that likable. As soon as the bet starts, however, we get to see another side of him...a side that is a lot more down to earth.

For me, this book was close to perfect. I loved the story line, the characters, and the editing was good too. There were only two things that knocked this book down from 5 stars to 4.5 stars. About a quarter of the way into the book there is an issue with an employee. The set up is there, but nothing ever comes of it. At the time, it seems as if it will be used to built another part of the story, but in the end it just sort of goes away. My second issue had to do with a misunderstanding toward the end of the book. While I understood it to a certain extent, the jump was quite sudden. I would have like to have seen a little more building up to it.

Even with those small issues, and yes, they were small, I loved this novel. It was a great read and I found myself picking it up whenever I had a spare moment. 
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy billionaire romance with a twist.


About the Author

Lori was a born a coal miner’s daughter. No wait, that’s not right.  Actually, she was born a carpenter’s daughter. Her mother was a housewife/homemaker/stay-at-home mom – whatever the politically correct term is these days.  Basically, she made sure Lori didn’t get into too much trouble, a task easier said than done.
Growing up the youngest of three girls, Lori never had control of the remote. (Not that she’s bitter about that. Really. Okay, maybe a little, but it’s not like she’s scarred for life or anything.) That meant a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy. Star Trek, Star Wars, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits – you name it, she watched it. It fed her imagination, and that came in handy when the hormones kicked in and she needed a creative excuse for being out past curfew.
After completing her first manuscript, she joined the Romance Writers of America and Central Florida Romance Writers. Now she exercises the analytical half of her brain at work, and the creative half writing paranormal romance. When she’s not doing either one of those, she’s usually spending time with her husband and children of the four-legged variety.
