Sintesi dell'editore

From New York Times best-selling 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 towns-person 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.

Beautiful!

What a beautiful story! So heart wrenching!!!
There are triggers in this book for child abuse.
As a mother, my heart was torn apart in parts of this story. Then to have my heart put back together word by word.
No review could ever do this story justice!
Beautifully written and very tough subject matter handled tenderly.
Bravo Kristy! Your words never cease to amaze me!

Emotional reunion...

Just a short warning about triggers present in this story, so if you are sensitive to child molestation as a trigger this story may not be for you. The hero and heroine in this story were best friends as children, until something happens and suddenly she is gone. Years later, she reappears in their hometown where he is now a police officer. The heroine still blames him for her departure and feels he betrayed her confidence. The rebuilding of their relationship is what the story is about and the ability of her to trust in anyone is the question. I enjoyed this book very much and the narration was excellent.

Good book but not fan of narrator Maxine Mitchell

Loved the narrator Joe Arden for Grant, but didn't like Maxine as the other narrator for Emerson. I felt like Emerson was the biggest winer and couldn't figure out what she wanted through the whole book for her life and Grant. Maxine sounded to old for Emerson age in the book. I actually preferred to listen to Joe Arden narrate the book more. I hope when they bring the audio for Combust book out that Maxine is not the narrator again for that next book.
Now that this was said. I'm still a huge fan of K Bromberg books but this book didn't get me feeling that I loved it and would read it again like her other books make me feel. So that is why I rated this a 3 star.

Sparkle

What a gem this book is! There are so many facets to this well written book. The story has so many emotions in it. The main theme I took away from the story was "Define or Fuel", with tragedy choosing to fuel the character, not define it. The topic of child molestation is difficult to hear about, but the author wrote this story in such a beautiful and gripping way. I loved how K.Bromberg wrote such truism into this book like trust is a hard thing to earn back, love hard in the present and not need to know the details of the past, heads up, wings out. Another aspect I found moving in this book was how the choice to do right, brought focus to what needs changed. Both narrators delivered so much with their performance, it was perfect. I received a review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and both narrators, as each one is so talented. I can't wait to listen to the second book in this series! This is a standalone listen and does not end in a cliffhanger.

Regardless of the woman's history

I got sick of her whininess. I have noticed this in a number of women in stories recently and thought--can I stand to read through this shrill whiny character? It resolves ok but I really had a hard time stomaching chapter after chapter of her responses.

whiney narrator<br /><br />

I absolutely must avoid books narratedby the female narrator. I hear a whine on the end of each phrase.

Loved this!

K. Bromberg does an amazing job of delivering characters you can't help but fall in love with. The chemistry between Grant and Emmy is sizzling to say the least. They have so much history to work through but you are routing them on the whole way.I loved the story and the feels it gave me.

Not only are we given a heart touching story but the narration is top notch! Joe and Maxine gave these characters amazing depth and really brought them to life. I loved Maxine's Male character voice. It was fabulous and absolutely added to the overall enjoyment of this book.

Great job all around- so glad I read it. Can't wait to read Combust and get more of these Sexy Malone brothers!

Family

How can a grown man enjoy the company of children ? I’ll never understand the mind of a sick person who would defile an innocent child. This book shows the power of love and family! Wish everyone who goes through something like this could fight as hard to regain their identity as Emerson did. She is truly a fighter.

A wonderful emotional roller coaster!

This book, once again Bromberg emotionally rings me out with her story! I cried! Something I should expect with all of her books it seems. But this one had such an intense back story, and such a heart-breaking case that Grant is on as a cop. Of course his case is similar to what Emmy's past was, the thing that sent her away from her friend Grant. Emmy fought so hard against getting back with him, and it was hard not to empathize with her and her past. But it was so wonderful to see how hard Grant fought for her. There was something at the very beginning that I just knew would come into play later in the book to cause an obstacle for them. I learned a new term for friends with benefits, banging buddies, hadn't heard that one before! Since I'd already read/listened to book 2, I already knew Grady, but I kinda want to go back and reread/listen to hear things that might make more sense after getting this first one read. And while there was a short time in my life I thought I'd like to skydive, I've since decided I don't want to. But then, the rush that they talk about afterwards? Well, I kinda want to experience it just once!

The best love story ever!!!

This story was so well written I found myself in tears many times. It was so real. The author wrote this as if she had experienced it herself. The balance between the story from the past and the present was written very well. This author should consider screen plays.

That'll be a pass

The write up & reviews for this book and Combust, were the reason for trying this author 's work for the first time.
I tried, really tried, more than once, to get into this book. The premise was good, although the syntax a bit of a challenge to get around.
The biggest problem I felt I had to try & overcome was with the narration. I have enjoyed Joe Arden's work on very many previous books, however the narrator for the female character had a cadence to her voice that made listening very difficult, akin to ears bleeding.
For the first time, in all the many books I have read and those I have listened to with Audible, I admitted defeat and had to abandon it.
I hope other readers / listeners have better luck.

Emotional, sexy romance

I love friends to lovers dual POV romance, I also love Kristy Bromberg’s writing. Therefore I loved this book. This series follows three brothers, and book 1, ‘Cuffed’ follows the eldest brother Grant Malone (or ‘Officer Sexy’ as some would call him), a Police Officer with a need to protect embedded deep in his soul. He even feels the need to protect at the age of 8 when he does his best to help his best friend Emerson Reeve. Unfortunately circumstances mean that Emmy had to move away. Fast forward 20 years and Emmy’s returned and it would appear that they are going to be more than friends, the question is..........can Emmy ever trust Grant again? An emotional read with lots of humour and sexy time. The narration by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell was perfect.

Really struggled to finish this book

Nearly did not finish, but forced myself to in order to give an informed review. Blurghhhh it was a tough slog to get through it. You’d expect this to be because of the references to abuse and the emotional nature of the book - but no. That whole concept fell flat. I struggled to finish it because it was so boring and really dragged. There was no emotional connection with the characters, you’re supposed to believe that the couple have something special between them but no matter how many times the book tells you this fact, you don’t feel it. It’s full of descriptions of emotional moments and attempted drama, but you never actually FEEL it. The drama towards the end was just too much as well - really made me groannnnn. More like a 5 afternoon movie (bit like a made for TV Hallmark movie for those non-Brits out there). I could see what the book was trying to do but in the end it was just full of clichés and boredom.

Reviewers who say how emotional and heart wrenching it was really need to read some better books. If you want stories dealing with recovering from abuse/rubbish childhoods, trust and romance that give you all the feels and a drag you in to the story then you should try an author like Colleen Hoover instead. This book wasn’t even a guilty pleasure with being rubbish - just plain, simple rubbish.

Joe Arden is a decent narrator, but Maxine Mitchell’s narration makes the book even worse than the writing because of her intonation (gets really annoying) and making every single sentence sound like Emmy is an angsty school teacher breaking bad news to a small child (save it for the angsty sections please ..if at all). She’s wrecked several books I’ve listen to (and I’ve listened to way over 1000 so I’m familiar what good narration sounds like) so I really should learn from it and avoid the books she narrates.

5 Head Up, Wings Out Stars

This was a much more emotional book than I thought it would be. Secondary characters are great & I’m looking forward to Grady and Grayson’s stories.
Grant is a gorgeous hero & Joe Arden reads the character superbly. Took me a while to get into Maxine Mitchell’s style of reading but once I did I enjoyed it. As a heroine, Emmy will break your heart and equally make you want to shake her to see what potential there is for her and Grant. The girl will run when she can but the reasons why are devastating.
Triggers? Yes, domestic abuse, child sexual abuse.
HEA? Yes
Cheating? No.

sensitively written about the aftermath of abuse

Rated low - as I struggle with Maxine Mitchell s narration style. I have never liked it, although a lot of people do. she intones uplifts the end of each word or sentence consistently.
However the story still deserves to be listened to and Joe Ardens delivery was great.
Beautiful story of overcoming abuse and the process therein.

Should come with a trigger warning!!

This wasn’t a bad book. Some of the narration was irritating, but really the biggest issue is that it should come with a trigger warning.
