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 surprised me. More than once. I am not sure why, but it just wasn't what I was expecting. I think I thought it would be lighter than it was, which makes no sense in retrospect as Kristy Bromberg doesn't write a story that fails to pull at your heart, and your emotions.
Grant and Emerson were friends as kids. And, then something happened. It was one of those big "somethings" that as kids you don't know how to process. And, as adults, well, you don't know how to deal with the person who was part of your "something big" as a child.
I loved the depth that this gave the story, the idea that there was something in their past drawing them both together and apart.
The romance is wonderful and it is heightened by the push and pull of the past that they share that neither really acknowledges, Grant because he is not sure what happened, Emerson because she does not want to go back to that point. I loved the depth of this story, the fact that the relationship between these characters has so much more going on than the adults meet as kids and pursue a relationship.
And, saying more is tough. Because, as this snuck up on me a bit, I am afraid to say anything as I don't want to ruin this for someone else.
I enjoyed this, and I recommend it.
