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.

Never have I ever read a character in a book that is almost perfect. The author has created the most lovable hero in Grant Malone and I can’t get enough of him!
Grant Malone is the oldest of the three Malone brothers and is onto a mission to save the world ever since his childhood friend Emmy went away. Emerson and Grant were neighbours and grew up together as best friends but one day Emmy told Grant a secret, made him pinky promise and he did. The eight year old boy broke that promise though and his best friend was taken away. Fast forward twenty years and Emerson is back in town all grown up. I love the family dynamics of the Malone family: dad is a retired Chief of Police, mum is a strong woman who handles the men in her family very well, Grant the eldest is a police officer, Grayson the middle son is a pilot and a single parent and Grady the youngest son is a firefighter. We get a glimpse of their tight knit family and by the end of the story you want to know more about the other brothers too.
Emerson’s background is the complete opposite to the Malone family. She is a gypsy by heart, doesn’t trust men and shies away from relationships. She doesn’t remember much about her childhood because she has blocked it off. Only a well written book can convey a character’s inner anguish especially when she remembers glimpses of her past childhood. There is a delicate balance between her strength and vulnerability and Grant is the key. Either he can help her or destroy her completely. “He started putting my bricks and mortar back into place to prove that I am as strong as I thought I was. Sure there is doubt, and there always will be. But he knew that was what I needed – to be pushed back into my comfort zone so I’d find my confidence again. So I’d wipe out my scepticism.”
I just love how the author moulds Grant’s character into that perfect fictional boyfriend that every woman wants. His dedication to his career, his hero complex albeit annoying to Emmy is so cute and showing her that he is willing to go all in and realising that she is the one is so swoon worthy. I just want to pinch his cheeks, either way! How can you not fall in love with a guy who is strong enough to knock out a bad guy and yet not afraid in showing his girl his softer side?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I think I found my new book boyfriend I am quite willing to share. Ladies, join the queue! I am so looking forward to reading Grady’s story. Highly recommended!
