Then You Happened by K. Bromberg Blog Tour

From New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a standalone contemporary romance about trusting fate and finding yourself again.

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.
The problem?
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.

“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.

“What won’t?”

“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.”

Tatum leaves home with an ultimatum, ditch the boyfriend or your family and inheritance. She basically told daddy dearest to shove it and found out years later that daddy was right. But she couldn't go back home and let her parents see just how her life turned out. After her husband died, she is left with his bad debt, her ruined reputation, a failing horse ranch, a chaotic life, and a need to never trust anyone again.

Jack Sutton has one last thing he has to do before he is to go back home and run the family ranch. He was only supposed to help her for six months, to turn things around. Not fall in love with her, that kinda throws a wrench in his plans.

While Tatum/Tate is learning how to run a horse ranch, she is also learning how to trust a man again. And Jack is seeing a wild side in Tate he never thought she possessed. The more time they spend together, the more the feelings blossom. But the problems and secrets will drive them apart.

Will Jack tell Tate the truth before she learns it on her own? Will he be able to help her save the ranch? Can they get past the lies and secrets that he is keeping?

I loved everything about this story, and it is heartbreaking at times and even makes you laugh. Reading a K. Bromberg story will make you feel like you are right there in the story and that is one of the reasons I love her writing style. So grab this one and enjoy it!

What happens when you find out that the one person you thought you knew has betrayed you in the worst possible way? Do you curl up and slink back? Or do you stick it out?

Tate is finding her own way through a mess that her husband left her. In debt up to her eyeballs and living in a town that wants to drive her away. While she left everything once before, she doesn't want to have to do that again. She loves her horses and wants to succeed, but she also doesn't know much about the ranch life. Tate finds herself in need of a manager, but her ability to truly trust people has been shattered over and over again.

Then you have Jack. He was kind of hard to figure out at the beginning. He was gruff, didn't sugar coat anything, and just liked to get a rise out of Tate. But when you look beyond the facade, you can see that he truly does want for her to succeed. When he realizes the uphill battle they are both running, Jack steps in to help Tate figure out how to fight and find herself again.

With a corrupt town, shady business dealers, unsupportive family, and their own attraction to fight, Jack and Tate will have to find their own truth.

I think my largest issue with the story was the family aspect. There was so much that could've come from that perspective, but you're just kind of left in limbo. Jack and Tate have to work hard for their love and relationship, and it made them that much more relatable. I really enjoyed watching them figure out how to trust, love, and find their own way through all of the muck that life throws at you.
