Meet New York's Finest-three hot brothers sworn to protect and serve the city they love . . . and the women who've stolen their hearts.


Vincent Moretti is one of the NYPD's top homicide detectives-and one of the most eligible bachelors in town. His family, however, thinks he should date his longtime partner, Jill-a sassy, sexy, smart-mouthed blonde who drives him absolutely crazy.

Behind the quiet authority, tough-guy demeanor, and dark aviator glasses lies a man with a big soul-and a hard body that can soften any girl's heart. After years as his coworker, Jill Henley has given up hope that anything could happen between her and Vin. Besides, loving him would break all the rules. But seeing Jill with someone else triggers feelings in Vincent he never knew he had. Now he'll have to stop playing good cop/bad cop-and find a way to convince her to be his partner for life. . .

 Crista’s Review

Cuff Me_Teaser 1[6]

5 Stars!

Cuff Me is the third book in a series that features three brothers who are police officers.  I have not read the previous two books in this series, and this did not hinder any enjoyment of this book nor my ability to jump right into it.

I loved everything about this book, and now can’t wait to go back and read the previous two books: Frisk Me and Steal Me.  This author has amazing talent and if this book is any indication of her normal writing, then I’ve been missing out!

This is a slow-build romance that begins way before the start of this book.  Vincent Morretti and Jill Henly have been partners on the police force for years.  There is a definite chemistry that lurks right beneath the surface, but both seem oblivious to it.

It’s not until the game suddenly changes that Vin and Jill finally get a chance to explore their mutual attraction.  When this finally happens, I for one was giddy with excitement.

There is something so amazing about a friends-to-lovers story, and this one is done VERY well.  I really appreciated the mutual respect and appreciation that Vin and Jill have for one another, and I also felt the sexual chemistry and tension between them down to the very tips of my toes!

There is also a case that needs to be solved, and it’s no secret that Jill and Vin are best when they are working together.  The suspense and mystery portion of this book was interesting, but honestly, it was the romance that really captured my heart.

By the time that they FINALLY take the chemistry that they have at work to the bedroom, I was flipping pages as quick as I could!  Let’s just say, I’ll never think of handcuffs in the same way again!!

This is a fabulous and fun read that I wholeheartedly recommend!
