CUFFED by: K. Bromberg
Release Day – Oct 23
Everyday Heroes #1
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.
5+ ‘Chasing moments together’ Stars!

Oh. My. Goodness. If you thought K. Bromberg could not get any better, I am extremely happy to tell you that you are very wrong! This woman can definitely write one hell of a love story. I mean.. I am not surprised because I love every single word she writes but this novel was just outstanding in every single aspect. Cuffed overflows with emotions. Cuffed is beautifully written. Cuffed is heart-breaking and heart-warming. Cuffed is, of course, sexy as hell. Cuffed is one of the best works K. Bromberg has written. Cuffed is simply magical.
This novel is the first installment in Kristy’s new series called Everyday Heroes and it’s focused on three Malone siblings: three hot men with heroic jobs. Cuffed is the love story between Grant Malone a.k.a Officer Sexy and Emerson “Emmy” Reeves. This couple were best friends through their childhood but circumstances separate them and Emmy leaves hating Grant. Twenty years pass and now Emmy is back. She is a changed woman but Grant makes all her past ghosts (including himself) come back. However, leaving that aside for a moment, what makes this story so good is the emotional connection these two have (and their crazy chemistry!).
I’ve spent the last twenty years shutting myself off from all emotion—all feelings when it comes to anyone of the opposite sex—and in a span of one week’s time, I’ve let Grant change that.
My black-and-white world has color seeping into its edges.
I am wrecked. I am absolutely wrecked. Holy crap. This story made me a fucking mess. It was EVERYTHING. Cuffed, besides being an incredible love story, is the story of a woman fighting to start leaving again and the man that will do anything in his power to give it to her. Grant brings back so many of Emmy’s memories, the bad ones but also the good ones. This couple had the most beautiful and adorable friendship and now, they have one of the most epic love stories I’ve ever read. I cried so much for Emmy. I cried so much for the whole situation. I cried for everything that Grant does to make her trust him again. Cuffed is just an emotional journey for both these characters.
She’s sunshine with a little bit of hurricane thrown in, and I’m willingly walking straight into her storm with nothing more than the clothes on my back.
And without leaving this theme of emotions, Emmy and Grant also gave me so much happiness. Yes, they were adorable as kids. But they are SO FREAKING HOT as adults. The sexual tension is palpable through every page and the sex is absolutely mind-blowing! The chemistry between these two is so worth it because it’s not only about the sex (which I am definitely not complaining about!) but it all comes back to the same thing: feelings. The feelings Emmy has, the feelings Grant has, the feelings every single character in this book has. The feelings they all provoked in me. I was an emotional mess while reading this whole thing (can’t you tell?!) and I LOVED IT!
“It seems I have forgotten my handcuffs.”
“Oh, am I under arrest?”
“What’s the charge?”
“Making me want you. Every minute of every goddamn day.”
I also love a great list of characters and Cuffed surely has it. There is so much love in the pages of this book: not only between Grant and Emmy but also from the Malone family and from Emmy’s friends. Characters are such an important part to every reader and I can assure you K. Bromberg did an amazing job with the whole book. And now, let’s also talk about that ending because it was extraordinary. I cried my eyeballs out (of course!). I loved how emotional, sexy and romantic it was. Grant and Emmy are such brilliant characters and they definitely deserved their happily ever after.
It’s just him. And me.
Just the moment.
Therefore, I am rating Cuffed with my special 5+ STARS rating because I do believe this is one of the best works that K. Bromberg has ever written. Her writing style flows beautifully, the story is compelling and its characters are just outstanding. I loved this couple and the crazy chemistry they have. I loved all the emotions this novel provoked in me. Grant and Emmy have just become one of my favorite book couples ever. So yeah, as you can imagine, I am highly recommending to read this one! It’s so worth it.
