Meet New York’s Finest-three hot brothers sworn to protect and serve the city they love . . . and the women who’ve stolen their hearts.
ARRESTED BY LOVE
Vincent Moretti is one of the NYPD’s top homicide detectives-and one of the most eligible bachelors in town. His family, however, thinks he should date his longtime partner, Jill-a sassy, sexy, smart-mouthed blonde who drives him absolutely crazy.
Behind the quiet authority, tough-guy demeanor, and dark aviator glasses lies a man with a big soul-and a hard body that can soften any girl’s heart. After years as his coworker, Jill Henley has given up hope that anything could happen between her and Vin. Besides, loving him would break all the rules. But seeing Jill with someone else triggers feelings in Vincent he never knew he had. Now he’ll have to stop playing good cop/bad cop-and find a way to convince her to be his partner for life. . .
The New York’s Finest series is back with Cuff Me. This time we get the much anticipated story of Vincent and Jill. Vincent is quite the catch: tall, handsome, and overall badass. But, as tough as he might be on the outside, he is quiet on the inside. His demeanor throws everyone off; especially the one person who’s attention he desperately wants. You see, Vincent has been silently pinning for his partner Jill for the past six years, but has never done anything about it. He’s never given any indication to her that he likes her as more than a friend. So, what does it take to get some action out of Vincent? Well, how about Jill getting engaged to another man. Seeing her happy and off with someone else is just the kick in the pants that he needed. Will Vincent finally be brave enough to tell Jill how he feels or will he find himself too late??
I loved this addition to the New York’s Finest series! I have been waiting and waiting for Vincent’s story and I have to tell you, it did not disappoint. It was so wonderful being back with the Moretti family again. They are the absolute best people and just a joy to want to be around. I know if the existed in real life, I’d be wanting to hang with them. I love how Vincent’s family was very aware of his feelings for Jill and forced him to open his eyes before it was too late.
Vincent was everything that I wanted. He was tough, and determined. I can not even imagine what was going through his head when he realized that Jill was going to move on with her life without him in it. That being said, when he finally does realize his feelings for Jill, nothing is going to stop him from claiming her. And Jill…she wanted what everyone woman wants: a handsome, good man who loves and adores her. She thought she had found what she wanted and got tired of waiting for Vincent to wake up and smell the coffee. I loved the push and pull between Vincent and Jill. The two of them had amazing chemistry and I couldn’t help but root for these two, even if they did frustrate the heck out of me at times.
Cuff Me was a great story, from start to finish. I easily read this book in one sitting. This book checked off my boxes for a good read. Lauren Layne is one of those authors that I can count on for a well written and intriguing read. She always provides me with lovable and strong characters. And her stories are filled with lots of heart, friendship and romance. And I have to tell you, Cuff Me has all of that and more.
