Review – Cuffed by K. Bromberg

 REVIEW:

I was completely FLOORED when I read this book!  My head is still spinning…first because it has sensitive subject matter in which I normally shy away from and secondly, it has an undertone that is darker than I usually prefer in my books.  However, the voice of Ms. Bromberg is so compelling and her storytelling is so dynamic, I was sucked in and I could not put Cuffed down!  Grant, our hero, is so amazing…I was just overwhelmed with how much this man loved Emmy.  Having been witness to the darkest days of Emmy’s life, Grant thought the little girl who was his best friend was gone form his life forever….until she returns to town and he vows to be a part of her life, no matter what it takes.  He is fierce in his need for Emmy, pulling out all stops to get  her to face him and their past while moving onto a future in which they live happily-ever-after.  He doesn’t count on Emmy being so stubborn and fierce.  Emmy, well, everything about her broke my heart and reshaped it…more than once.  She was strong and proud and just keeps moving forward, which is difficult given the past she has endured.  She is Grant’s equal in every way but it determined to hold a grudge against Grant for actions that changed her life for the best and the worse.  These two have so much passion it practically leaps off the page and saturates your reading device.  It’s that chemically combustive!  I about fell over with the raw sensuality of their passion and the eroticism put forth.  I still can’t catch my breath over a week later.  I see this cover and I swoon all over again.  Now, don’t be fooled…the path to happily-ever-after is not easy for Grant and Emmy. It is very emotional and intense and I can guarantee you that you will need a box of Kleenex and maybe a counselor on standby (ok…fine, not the counselor, but definitely a good hug after).  I simultaneously wanted to beat the crap out of both of them and wanted to cuddle them better.  This book evokes so many emotions I was literally spent at the end….and then I wanted to read it again!  We have the angst of their relationship coupled with the charming antics of Grants brothers and his beloved parents.  Their scenes were refreshing and added extra charm to this book….not to mention make you anxious to have his brother’s stories told.  We even have a sleezy-slimeball of a character who holds Emmy’s future in his hands and is a complete and utter A**hole in the process.  Emmy has some great friends she works with that liven up this book, not to mention her pistol of a best friend…all of who teach Emmy about family and love.  Overall, I couldn’t put Cuffed down…it was full of everything in a book I never knew I wanted and I’m excited to see what Ms. Bromberg has in store for the next book in this series!  Again, I will state that subject matter in this book features a storyline that may be difficult for some readers to embrace but if you can, I suggest you try this book as you venture into darker waters than you are used to.  It’s worth the fear.   5 stars. 

 

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.

Review – Southern Attraction by Kaylee Ryan

Review:

Southern Attraction was a seriously sweet romance which I found I enjoyed very much.  Normally I like my books with more spice and sin but the easy comfort I felt reading Southern Attraction was like welcoming a long-time friend home from a very long trip.  I enjoyed the heady anticipation and deliciousness of the tease I found reading this book.  Our hero, Mike, is a true gentleman, having met our heroine while she was already in a relationship.  He can’t deny he is attracted but he doesn’t poach.  He is so swoony and romantic, it was very easy to fall in love with him.  Jamie, our heroine first met Mike when she comes to visit her best friend and knows immediately that a relationship with him would never work but that the relationship she is already in is no longer working either.  She leaves town, and Mike, and determined to settle for nothing less that what Mike makes her feel.  But upon her return to help her friend plan her wedding, she is shocked by how much she feels still for Mike and these feelings they both feel can’t be denied.  I really liked Jamie and  her open, friendly nature and her drive to succeed.  You never doubt the love she feels for her friend and you know that if she can feel that type of loyalty and love for a friend then the person she chooses to share her life with will be loved completely and unconditionally.  She was a delightful character, fresh and vivacious and full of positive energy.  There are so many romantic moments between Jamie and Mike that don’t include sex that I forgot how wonderful the anticipation of a romance can be when it’s not “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” and I’m grateful to Ms. Ryan for reminding me.  Mike and Jamie have obstacles to over come…she’s a city girl with big career dreams and he’s a country boy running his family bar, there is no way they can make it work…or can they?  Southern Attraction made me laugh and cry but mostly it made me sigh in utter satisfaction.  I was enchanted from the first word until the very last and I’m definitely going back to get the other books in this series so I don’t miss out on one minute of what seems to be a great series!  4.5 stars!

I had everything I ever wanted, living the dream, at least that’s what I always thought. The night we met, we had an instant attraction, but she was with someone else. When we reunited a few months later, that pull was still there, stronger than ever. So strong, that even though she was hundreds of miles away, I pursued her. I told myself that I just wanted to get to know her. Deep down I knew it was more.

 

I never understood the draw of living in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised a city girl, I never had the desire to leave. Who would have thought a weekend trip to the country would have me questioning myself? It was more than just the country; it’s him. The way he looks at me, treats me, that smooth southern
drawl.

Am I willing to give up my legacy for her?

Am I willing to give up my dream for him?

Can two souls come together by the force of Southern Attraction?
