Review: CUFFED by K. Bromberg!


My Review: A little torn on this one, honestly. I am absolutely in love with the teasing nature of Grant and Emerson - the one-upmanship, the teasing (the scene at the drugstore with the Tampax and Viagra had me laughing out loud)... But I have my issues with Emerson herself. Part of me understands why she's so "only live in the now," considering her past, I get it. But at the same time, that made her such an emotionless, almost shallow character, it was hard to like her. But because this is by K. Bromberg, she made me love everyone and everything by the end. It just felt like it took a while for me to get there.

As much as this book made me laugh, or fall in love, I still can't let go of my dislike of Emerson in the beginning. And I really want to, because there was so much good here. I also want to talk about how much I loved Grant's family - his realistic (and sometimes antagonistic) relationship with his brothers, and the family as a whole. Sure, the romantic relationship between the hero and heroine steals the show, but familial and friendships matter too! And they really add to the genuineness of the book.

Cover Lovin': Pass the fans! That's one hot cop. 

Recommendation: New series, new slate! No prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating: I'm wavering between a 3.5 and a 4 on this one, but I'm going with FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! There was more than enough good to outweigh any difficulty I had, and overall, it was a great read.

Happy Reading!

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. ADD TO GOODREADS
