From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.
“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”
Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.
Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.
But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.
What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?
I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.
That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.
Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.
I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.
“I need to do the one thing I do every day in my life professional life but can’t seem to ever do personally; leap before looking. I need to follow my motto: Heads up. Wings out.”
“I only live in the now. I only live in tomorrows. I can only cope with the future I make for myself.”
“It only takes a split second for him to react, to part his lips and give me a taste of beer on his tongue. For him to consume my mind and shift it away from the hundreds of thoughts I don’t want to be thinking.”
Cuffed is the first book in an exciting new series, Everyday Heros. Cuffed is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Emmy and Grant. Emmy and Grant were the best of friends, totally inseparable. All that changed when Grant told a secret that would forever change Emmy’s life. It wasn’t his secret to tell, but Grant would do anything for those he cared about. He didn’t know that the day he told Emmy’s secret, would be the last time he would see her. Now, 12 years later, fate has reunited the two of them. Seeing Grant again after all this time has stirred up feelings, memories and emotions that Emmy thought she had laid to rest. Emmy tries to run from Grant, but Grant isn’t taking no for answer. He misses his old friend and can’t fight the attraction that he has for her. Will Emmy forgive Grant for his mistakes of the past? Will Emmy and Grant finally be able to move on? Will Emmy and Grant take a chance on the intense connection that they feel? There is only one way to find out…..
Cuffed is a fantastic start to the Everyday Heros Series. Cuffed starts off with one intriguing beginning and has you curious to find out more. I thought that Emmy was a really interesting character. You could tell that her life wasn’t perfect and that her past had shaped the person she has become. She doesn’t trust all that easily and would rather forget the past than dwell on it. Seeing Grant after all that time totally knocked her on her feet. Not only was she trying to ignore the past, but she didn’t want to give into the connection that she still shared with Grant….And Grant….I really liked him. He was a really good guy and he didn’t have any trouble getting women. But, when he sets his mind on something, wild horses can’t stop him. Seeing Emmy again after all that time, knocked his world off its axis. He couldn’t get her out of his head and would stop at nothing to see her again….I really enjoyed Emmy and Grant together. I loved their friendship and their chemistry. Their road to hea wasn’t an easy one. I love that they had to work for it and had to fight for what they wanted.
Overall, I thought this book was a terrific read. I loved the characters. I loved the story-line. I just couldn’t get enough. This book was easily devoured in just one sitting and can not wait for more. I look forward to get my hand on the next book in this series and seeing which character will steal my heart next!
