Hello everyone! I’m glad to be back today, it’s been one heck of a Spring Break for me but today I am happy to be part of the Cuff Me blog tour presented by Tasty Book Tours. It was by accident I came across this series and I couldn’t be more smitten by the Moretti family! I hope you’ll give the series a try if you haven’t read it! Don’t forget to enter the tour wide giveaway at the end of the post!

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. . .
Vincent Moretti is one of the top homicide detectives in New York. With his quiet, tough guy exterior and hidden soft heart, Vin could win over any woman he wanted except he can be kind of clueless when it comes to matters of the heart. Until his longtime partner Jill Henley comes back from her vacation engaged. Before her engagement, Jill used to drive Vin crazy with her endless chatter and snarky attitude but now that she’s about to be removed from his grasp permanently, Vin questions his budding feelings for his coworker.
Awww I think Vincent might be my favorite Moretti after all. He’s gruff, emotionally constipated, socially awkward and stubborn as hell but he’s also loyal, emotionally vulnerable and one hundred percent book boyfriend material. Vin knows he’s one of, if not the best homicide detectives. He’s confident about his ability to perform his job but when it came to him as a person, as a man he was less than sure. Vin didn’t do pity parties but it was clear that they guy thought he was lacking when it came to emotions and showing affection. How can you not want to love a guy like that?
The attraction between Vincent and Jill was always there whenever they appeared in previous books. It was subtle and mostly noticeable on Jill’s part but in a resigned sort of way. Vin and Jill also had a unique friendship too, one where she did most of the talking while Vin kind of just grunted in agreement but it worked for them. I enjoyed their friendship as much as I enjoyed their romance and I’m glad that at the end they kept the best parts of their friendship and used it to build their new relationship.
Of course, Cuff Me wasn’t all heat. Vin’s siblings and especially his Nonna brought some great humor. I love Nonna Moretti. In each book she is so full of life and spunk and often times has been the one to say what no one else had the guts to say. Plus she’s got such an active social and um, sex life that I can’t help but admire that woman.
Final Verdict: There are two more Moretti children left and I hope they get stories of their own soon. Until then, Cuff Me remains the one to beat in my eyes.
