Misty Walker’s Cop-Out is a page turning, emotionally explosive, super sexy, contemporary
romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes World project.
I came to Sunnyville broken, battered, and bloody.
I was saved, rescued by an angel wearing a badge and from that point on, I wanted to be just like him.
Flash forward two years and I finally have my opportunity.
But then Topher Harding asks me out on a date.
He’s sexy, he has dimples, and he’s a cop.
One date turns into five turns into me thinking this guy might be my forever.
Unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan.
This is my life and I refuse to let anyone, or anything stand in my way.
Especially a sexy, dimpled cop who thinks I need a hero.
From the second the new dispatcher walked into the station, I wanted her.
She’s smart, quick thinking, and on a scale of one to ten, her body is a fifteen.
For the first time in my life, I want to stop adding notches to my bedpost and buy a new bed.
One I can share with Liv for the rest of my life.
After everything she has been through, I need is make sure nothing and no one can touch her again.
Then I find out she’s been keeping a secret that I can’t get over.
So, I let her walk out of my life.
Now she’s back with a shiny new badge of her own.
And being the department’s Field Training Officer, she’s put under my wing.
She still doesn’t need a hero.
But she does need me.
And I’ll prove it to her.

Would I recommend? Yes, for all readers of steamy contemporary romance!
Would I re-read this book/series? I think so!
Would I read more from the author? Definitely!!!
Addictiveness: 4.5/5 This was a fast-burn romance with lovable characters that kept me interested from the beginning. As addictive as ice cream!!!
Character: hero 4.5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Multidimensional characters with good background stories and great personal growth during the book.
Liv was a strong heroine. She had a back start of life, but came out stronger for it. She conquered her fears and was able to opened herself for second chances. She was very easy to love and connect.
Topher was a good hero. Yes, like most men, he had some too-stupid-to-live moments. From within him came out some chauvinism, but he was always fighting them and trying to get better. He was a good guy, very alpha and protective, and a bit of a jerk also. His personal growth during the story was good and it felt realistic.
Secondary characters I really loved them all and I’m really looking forward to read a Bray-Carly story. (Hopefully there will be one!)
Villain/antagonists there are no villains. Their fight and struggles were with themselves.
They were all easy to love, to connect and understand!!!
Cover: art 4.5/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, subtitle 2/5, background 5/5 buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. I always try to be true to myself, I buy so many books because of the cover and I have skipped many because of not very appealing art. Covers are part of the experience for me and I do like to understand them. This one was perfection!!! I really liked this art. I can totally see Topher and his tattoos here. I only wished we had some subtitle here that gave a glimpse of the story. I would easily buy this book by its cover without needing to read the blurb!
Freshness: 4/5 Unique! Even though is was another small town, contemporary romance, it felt original. The author amazingly turned the things around by creating a fast-burn romance, that looked perfect, until it wasn’t anymore. It felt fresh!! As fresh as mint mentos!!!
Plot: believable 5/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 4.5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 4/5, twists 4/5 Amazing opening with an interesting ending. Great plot, with well written dialogues and fast-paced. Good setting, with ok subplot and a couple of enjoyable twists. High level of enjoyment!
This plot concept was really good. Even though this could have been another contemporary, small town, cop story, the author gave a fresh vibe to it that felt original.
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 4/5, steam 4/5 Their chemistry was undeniable and their love story seemed perfect, until it wasn’t. Their struggle felt real and very believable. The smut here was amazing with so many panty-wetter scenes. Sexy romance!!!
Writing Style: 4.5/5 This was a first read by the author for me and I’m really looking forward to read more from her. Characters were very well developed with lot of depth to them. Plot was interesting, original and cohesive. The writing was clean, without loopholes. The romance was hot and dirty enough! Amazing writing!!!
Because I try to be very analytical and I don’t really believe in perfection…
I think the second part of the book was a bit rushed. I wanted a little more groveling. 🙂
