Release Week Blitz: Review + Giveaway- Cuff Me by Lauren Layne


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. . .

I really enjoy Lauren Layne books and New York's Finest series is one which I have liked, though not as much as her Stiletto's series. Cuff Me is the third and the final book in this series and this is Vincent and Jill's book. Vincent and Jill's story has been brewing since the first book itself if I am not mistaken and this was a big FINALLY happening for them. I cannot say that Cuff Me was my favourite book in the series but it was still quite a good read.

Let's start with Vincent. Vincent is one of the middle brothers in the Moretti brothers. He has always been quiet and most of the times he comes off as rude. I liked Vincent but I was really unsure as to why he was not as confident in his feelings towards Jill. I thought he was dense when EVERYONE around could see that Jill and he were meant to be. 

Same was the case with Jill. For being such a smart cop she was really dense when it came to her feelings for Vincent. Her heart was saying one thing and her mind was saying another. For being such a bubbly and affectionate person she held herself back from Vincent for no apparent reason and then tried to find something else with someone else.

I liked that Cuff Me has a sort of suspense going on in the background. Jill and Vincent are solving the murder of a renowned actress and though the mystery wasn't anything great it kept the story moving forward. Jill and Vincent's romance is slow burn max almost to the point of being get-together-already. But they finally do manage to get their shit together.

I definitely enjoyed seeing the previous couples from the series in Cuff Me. All the scenes with the entire Moretti clan are always hilarious. The love and understand each other and it is easy to see. We also get to meet the elusive Marco in this book and I loved Elena to pieces. I'm not sure if either one of them is getting their own book because they certainly deserve one but I do hope so. Cuff Me was a nice read overall.
