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.
Well, that sure is one way to debut a new series, K. Bromberg! Although I do have to be honest here, this book had parts that stressed me the f* out to the point where I doubted I couldn’t move on but I am glad that I did because the story certainly evolved into something great.
Cuffed involves this fearless woman named Emmy whom I thought immediately was so kickass. She was living life to its fullest, she was easy-going – jumping out of planes, following her dreams of owning her own business. Everything about her seemed perfect up until she bumped into someone from her past – Grant Malone.
I loved how K. Bromberg kept us guessing as to why Grant affected Emmy in such a negative manner. At first, I was appalled but once I got to the gist of it I realized just how Emmy’s horrible experience shaped Grant’s persona. He became the magnificent man that he was because of her. This is what I loved about the story – how the author defined the word “HERO” in Grant.
Stories involving child abuse and child molestation isn’t entertaining to me at all but K. Bromberg sure did manipulate the story to her advantage where I thought the complete opposite. Kudos to her for tackling such a sensitive subject with finesse and proving to us that what Emmy went through was worth it for both of them in the end.
There were one of two things that were left unanswered but nonetheless I enjoyed the story. Hopefully, some of those things will be addressed in the future. After reading the first in the series, I definitely can not wait to see how The Everyday Heroes Series will progress.
