CUFFED by K. Bromberg
Release Day – Oct 23
5 Head Up, Wings Out CROWNS
Cuffed by K. Bromberg is without a doubt my new favorite novel of hers. She has this incredible talent at mixing real world problems that harm and change a person or people with steamy romances that pull on heart strings, and Cuffed certainly does all of this and more.
Part of what makes this novel so emotional is the heroine and all that she has endured. Emerson’s past will be a trigger for some readers, but I enjoyed how K. Bromberg exposes her past with flashbacks and through the eyes of children as well as the through adult perception of events during the present. The focus remains on the trauma, though, versus the despicable acts committed against Emerson. So while it will be hard for readers to hear about what happened to her, K. Bromberg’s focus on how she is affected in the past as well as the present is moving. Not only is it emotional, but it also serves to develop an attachment to the heroine. Readers will have nothing but the most absolute respect and adoration for her. The strength she exhibits, even when she thinks she is weak, is awe-inspiring. In addition to that, readers are going to see Emerson change and grow throughout the novel as she finally begins to plant roots and forget her days of running.
Grant is my favorite type of hero because he is the man who protects what he loves and lives his life by code of honor. He embodies everything that police officers stand for, and each attribute only makes readers love him more. The way he cares for Emerson in youth and adulthood will make readers swoon, and the way he protects the secondary characters in novel will make readers love him just as much. Additionally, as with most romance heroes, Grant’s skills in the bedroom are fantastic, but they are not over the top. K. Bromberg writes about his prowess in a way that makes it believable, which is a nice change of pace. Like Emerson, though, Grant has his flaws, making him a believable and authentic hero, but even these flaws work to make readers fall in love with him as he works to make amends for the wrongs he has committed in the past and present.
Cuffed is one of those books that hits all the right spots in the heart. Readers get the romance, the steam, the angst, but they also get the commentary on issues that affect society, particularly families, today. The romance keeps readers engaged, the past will make readers want to cry, and the present will highlight issues that plague certain justice systems today. All of these parts work together for a romance that will captivate readers from the very first page. Even more than that, readers will be entranced by this second chance romance because no one deserves it more than these two characters.
I jumped on the K. Bromberg train relatively late, but I am so glad I found it. She is one of those authors that I can count on to give me steamy romances with real plot lines. I get the best of both worlds. With the additional two standalones coming in this series, and I am excited to see where the Malone boys are going to take readers next.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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.
