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.

Cuffed is the newest masterpiece by the fabulous K. Bromberg. It’s the first book in a new series, Everyday Heroes. We meet three brothers, Grant, Grayson and Grady. A cop, a fireman and a rescue pilot. Their jobs are more than jobs to them. It’s their calling. It’s who they are. Kristy has a way of writing strong, vulnerable men. They are alpha but have gooey centers. Cuffed is Grant and Emmy’s story. They were childhood friends who were inseparable and always there for each other. When a broken pinky promise causes Emmy to move away, Grant never forgot her. He almost forgot how much she meant to him until he sees her again years later. She’s back. She’s gorgeous. And she still wants nothing to do with him. He wants to know what happened and he wants to be friends again. Emerson wants to live her life in the present and not relive the past. The attraction is undeniable, but she fights it. Grant is going to get past her walls and he knows the key is getting her fired up. He loves watching her get mad and he’s just the man to bring it out in her. He wants to get to know the woman she is today, but she’ll always be his Emmy. Do you have to go back to heal the past in order to move into the future?

Can you meet your destiny when you’re six years old? I loved this story. So much! Grant is so strong, sweet, dedicated and an amazing cop. I loved that we get to see him actually on the job. Working, studying, answering calls. Seeing how he cares about his town, his people and his career. Emerson is stronger than she thinks. She’s gorgeous and loves her job. It’s freeing, scary, but safe. I loved Grant’s fear and I’m with him 100%! Their banter is perfection. Their chemistry off the charts. Emerson’s best friend is freaking hilarious, Grant’s parents are great and his brothers are downright delicious. Overall, I laughed, cried, was biting my nails in anticipation, cried for the young Grant and Emmy and got hot and bothered. I can’t wait for Grady’s story!

 

“Oh, am I under arrest?”

“Definitely.”

The palm of his hand slides down the line of my spine.

“What’s the charge?”

“Making me want you. Every minute of every goddamn day.”

 

“I’m going to make you come. Can I promise you that?”

“I’ll accept that promise.”

“Good. Can we stop talking now because there are much more important things I want to be doing with my mouth, and every single one of them involves you and no words.”

Cuffed is the first novel in the Everyday Heroes series. It also happens to be the first book I have read by K.Bromberg. I know. I know…how is that even possible? I don’t know but so glad I finally did it. I think I was waiting for a new series to start. That sounds like me. Ok…moving on.
Grant and Emmy were the best of friends until he broke a pinky promise. Then she was gone. That was until twenty years later when they see each other. It’s awkward at first but Grant is determined to know how her life has been since she moved to who knows where when they were eight years old. He has missed his best friend. The one he played cops and robbers with. The friend that he teased. The friend that he could never forget. But from the way she ran when he saw her, he can sense that it’s not going to be easy. She is feisty and stubborn as ever.
Emmy knew she would run into him at some point. It was a small town. A town she never thought she would see again, let alone want to actually settle in after all the years of moving city to city. Jump to jump. She wants to be strong. To stay in control but the minute she sees him again she feels that control shake. She had many good memories especially when it came to the years of being Grant’s Emmy but they are bad memories that she doesn’t want to bring to the surface. And those are the ones that make her want to keep her distance from the only boy she felt safe with. The now man in uniform that makes her melt with just one sexy smirk. Damn him and his hero complex making her feel things she doesn’t want to feel.
Emmy has trust issues. Grant wants to prove to her that she can trust him. She takes leaps everyday while being a skydiving instructor but when it comes to relationships, she stays grounded. Grant doesn’t need her to leap right away, he just wants to be friends. But when it’s obvious that there is more between them than just friendship. They feel the want in spades. But can she truly trust Grant enough to let him into not only her body but her heart as well?
I love Grant and Emmy! Yes. They are frustrating but that makes them real. Grant is oh, so swoon-worthy, sexy, and determined. Emmy is strong, feisty, and doesn’t take anyone’s shit. She likes to be in control. Needs to be. And while Grant loves that about her, he also wants her to loosen up. Throw away the rules. Will he be able to gain her trust back?
Overall…I absolutely loved this book! I felt that it was a story that needed to be told. Yes, it’s romance but the underlying story needed to be shared. The characters are strong, well-developed, and sexy. I loved not only the couple’s banter but also the brother’s. They have each other’s back even when driving one another crazy. I can’t wait for the rest of the series.
Quotes:
My black-and-white world has color seeping into its edges.
Head up. Wings out.
“Oh, that means Grant has a lady coming over,” Grayson harasses, drawing the phrase out and earning a laugh from Grady.
“No, it does not mean I have a lady coming over.”
“Good thing,” Grady says, “because she’d be sorely disappointed in your skills.” He makes a show of trying to thrust his hips. “Says the man who could fuck a cheerio without breaking it,” I reply, just to shut him up, but I chuckle when Grady holds a fist over his mouth, points at me, and yells, “Burn!”
