Release Blitz: Cuffed by K. Bromberg

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.

Review by Jen Skewes

What can I say other than K.Bromberg has done it again!!  She has given us a swoon worthy hero, a strong, yet broken heroine and a story that will give you all the feels.  One minute you find yourself laughing and the next this book is tugging on your heart strings.  Cuffed is a beautiful story about learning to trust again, a sweet  friendship between a boy and a girl, and overcoming your past.  It is an epic friends to lovers story. 

Grant and Emerson were friends when they were kids.  They were best friends who were always together.  One day while in the third grade Grant and Em made a pinky promise, but Grant broke that promise along with any trust she had for him.  She hated him in that moment and swore that she would never forgive him and will hate him forever.  Very strong words for an 8 year old but even at that young age she felt the betrayal by her best friend.  Grant did what he thought was best.  He wanted to save her, be her friend and hero, but in the end it meant losing her. 

It has been twenty years since he has seen Emerson, but has thought of her over the years.  He is shocked when he runs into her again, not realizing she was even back in town.  All those feelings he had as a young boy come back to him.  He has always carried the guilt around for not being able to save her.   He lost her once and doesn’t plan on doing it again.  But Emerson hasn’t forgotten those feelings either, still being unable to trust the man that betrayed her when he was just a young boy.  As a young girl she was let down by two people who were supposed to love her and for those reasons she has a hard time trusting people and opening up.  She has her walls up and she is adamant that no one will be able to break them.  Not even Grant Malone!!  But he is in no way giving up on her or them. 

Grant is one of those heroes that is completely sexy, and swoon worthy but has a huge heart.  He has basically planted himself in her life, wanting that second chance to be friends.  All though he wants more he knows that with her past and trust issues he has to tread lightly.  But at the same time he becomes a constant in her life, basically making her angry and frustrating the heck out of her, which is what I loved.  I loved the banter between them, the back and forth between them that will make you laugh.  I loved how much he wanted to protect her, love her, and break down her walls. 

There was a little more to this story and Grant than him just wanting Emerson in his life.  Grant is a cop and there is one particular art of this story that you see just what an amazing and caring man he really is.  How he will go above and beyond the call of duty to protect and save someone, no matter what the risk.  It just made me love him even more.

Emerson was a strong heroine who was also very independent, which she made known to Grant many times.  But it is her back story, that we see at times through the past, that will get you.  This girl has been through so much at such a young age and when you see through flashbacks or dreams, what she went through your heart just breaks for her.   She tries so hard to keep the past where it belongs, to be able to live in the now, but over time you see how it slowly breaks her and at those moments you want to hold her and tell her is will all be ok.  Grant coming back in her life may have triggered some of her past, but at the same time it also in a way saved her.  Because what she felt when she was with him is something that she has not felt in years.

I loved this story and even more than that I loved the characters.  Emerson and Grant were just so perfect together.  He pushed and pushed and at times she ran, but in the end they were both exactly where they were supposed to be.  Cuffed will make you laugh, swoon, break your heart but in the end will leave you with a happy feeling inside.   The writing was flawless, the story was beautiful and the characters, you will adore.    This is the first in a new series by Ms. Bromberg and I am looking forward to the next one.
