“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 townsperso

Hi Jennifer-

Many times, the ratings have nothing to do with advanced copies and more accidental errors by readers. For instance, with Cuffed, ARCs went out two days ago and yet there are ratings that date back several months for it. Readers sometimes go to put the book on their TBR or go to get info on the upcoming release and accidentally click on the star rating. Then it's there until they actually rate the book (if they come back to it).

Believe me, it's frustrating for authors to have books release without a clean slate. It drives me crazy, but there is nothing we can do about it other than message each person and ask them to remove the review . . .

I hope that helps to answer your question.

Oh, Officer Malone…

So. Hot.

For once it's not the hero who has commitment issues and doesn’t want a relationship. I loved that. Not that these are desirable or positive characteristics, I’m just glad the heroine isn’t another celibate, reclusive, pitiful woman crying over her destiny.

Still, it didn’t feel like 5 stars. More like somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. And I know why. I think I’ve reached my limit of loved-you-since-childhood books. I’ve read hundreds of them.

➦I very much enjoyed this release from K. Bromberg, but then again I always enjoy her work. I don't think she can write a bad book. So go read it.

➦Just kidding! I must, of course, tell you a detailed summary of it. And may be some spoilers. Or a lot of spoilers. SO here goes.

OMG. I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! Total honesty here, I had this book pegged wrong. Now, that's probably my fault because I actually didn't read the blurb before I started the book.

His kiss is thunder and lightning, a tornado and a tsunami, all in one fiery package that makes me forget about the here and the now, makes me want more when more with Grant scares the shit out of me.

Don't let that ridiculously sexy cover fool you. While this book certainly brings that steamy punch that we're used to from K. Bromberg, it's also incredibly full of depth. The story hooked me and kept me riveted to the pages.

Grant and Emmy were best friends as kids and had a falling out. They reconnect as adults and the sparks fly. I liked the plot because it navigated a very sensitive subject with tact. I liked the characters and how they were fleshed out, despite being frustrated by Emmy on many a occasion. While she doesn’t win awards for being my favorite heroine, her actions stayed true to her setup. Grant was awesome. He was patient, kind, and loving. He brought about pretty much all of the heartwarming moment ...more

“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.”

K. Bromberg soars! Cuffed is everything I ever wanted in an emotional romance novel. It’s the perfect combination of steam and gut-wrenching emotional feels. Cuffed destroyed me in the best possible way. K. Bromberg continues to impress and takes emotional but sexy romance to the next level in the story of love, trust,

He was shallow - a man, who wants to have an upper hand, to peel off her control etc etc -> I ate a couple of such d-bags for breakfast in the past, so I'd rather dnf before I end up with another 1 star rating...

The three Malone brothers Grant, Grayson and Grady are the heroes of this new series by K. Bromberg.
The oldest one - Grant - is a cop - just like his dad.

Until one day in 3rd grade, Grant used to be the bestest of friends with Emerson.
But since that day twenty years have gone by.
She left school that day and never came back. And she hates him for breaking his pinky promise back then.
But she doesn't really hate him. She's already halfway in love with the man the boy has become. But he also reminds

You know when you read a book and your heart is just kind of in your throat for a good fifty percent of it? Yeah. That's this book. Dear god my heart could barely handle it. I LOVED this story. So much. My heart is still a little beat up over it, and I'm 100% okay with that.

Emmy and Grant used to be childhood best-friends, until Grant told a secret that changed Emmy’s life and that meant the end of their friendship.
20 years later, Emmy is back to their hometown ready to settle in one place after spending two decades living a nomadic lifestyle.
Grant believes this is a second chance for them. Emmy doesn’t think she can be healed.
What she didn’t expect was Grant making sure this time he makes the decision that will keep her close.

I gritted my teeth and struggled on for the first half, wondering about the glowing reviews that this book has received, determined to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

After all, there was nothing remotely attractive in a petulant woman holding a childish grudge for a mistake made 20 years ago against a police officer, acting like the biggest flake in the world all because she’s running, commitment-free, from a past that’s yet to be revealed. And th

My morning consisted of a fresh cup of coffee and settling down into my favorite cozy reading spot to start my read of Cuffed. I was immediately drawn into this second-chance romance between Emmy and Grant. Loved their banter. Loved their crazy reconnection. Loved them together. *Seriously never going to be able to drive past a CVS again without laughing out loud*

And then, whoa. Whoa. And cue the tissues.

The writing is not good and it cannot make me feel. The characters are much too annoying.

I neither feel the bond, nor the chemistry of the main characters. I can't understand the way the heroine's mind works. She is literally being ridiculous! The hero is also unlikable. Even the heroine's best friend is an awful friend.


The plot line doesn't make much sense. It is all over the place. I believe even the writer doesn't know what to do with the plot

Kristy Bromberg has a new series in town and Ramona was so up for the challenge. The reviews were awesome and almost all of them spoke about emotion and broken hearts, so why not???? I wanted to see how much she could push me and expose that sensitive side that not always is easy to reveal in a person. After "Down Shift" I thought it would be very hard for her to reach that level of emotion and connection again, and even if for me it was nearly there, I have to admit that the ride was amazing.

Grant and Emmy were childhood best friends. They spent all their spare time outside of school together and Emmy loved the warmth of Grant's family home, in fact it was a haven for her. She always felt like she was a part of their extended family. Grant and Emmy told each other everything, there were no secrets between them and when you are eight years old a pinky promise is like a binding legal document right?

Grant's father was a policeman so he grew up with a very strong sense of right and wron

Protective hero and feisty heroine who doesn't like it? I sure do! But there is more than just another beloved heroes who do not fully acknowledge their feelings. It is about struggling with the devastating past, which they have to face after twenty years. For fans of typical romances, there are really hot scenes and romantic, swoon worthy

Is this girl really going to hold a grudge over something that happened 20 years ago in 3rd grade, when they were 8 years old? From the blurb:"those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears..." If it wasn't in the blurb I wouldn't believe it. Well...yawning... I can only imagine immaturity galore here.
And of course a bitchy, female mc. Can't do

Cuffed was the first book in the Everyday Heroes series by K Bromberg. I’ve always enjoyed Bromberg’s books and Cuffed was no exception.

Grant Malone and Emmy Reeves were childhood best friends until she abruptly moved away at age eight with the parting words “I hate you. I never want to see you again.” Fast forward 20 years and Emmy had moved back to Sunnyville and crossed paths with Grant, who was now a local cop.
