Synopsis from Goodreads
A good cop can always spot trouble. That’s why my senses started pinging the moment I met the hottie next door. The neighborhood may never be the same. First she confuses me for a male stripper and tries to remove my uniform. (The guys on the force will never let me live that down.) And then there’s the breaking and entering.
I don’t know what to do with her. My libido has a few ideas of its own, though. Bad, bad ideas.
Hey, it’s not my fault that Hot Cop’s nightstick gets excited every time we see each other. And I can’t help that someone broke into his apartment.
Fine—that last thing was totally my fault. And I intend to make amends. So when he needs a date for his sister’s wedding, I’m there. This is right up my alley. I’m an actor. By the time it’s over, his entire family will believe we’re a couple.
Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero.
Man Cuffed starts with a random encounter between Meg and Mac who is mistaken for a stripper. The chemistry between the pair is instantaneous and incendiary. Although circumstances don’t allow for any sort of exploration of the pheromones invading the air.
That is until fate takes charge and Meg magically becomes Mac’s next-door neighbour. Sadly, Mac already has a friend with benefits (which I completely hated) however, this doesn’t seem to deter Meg who recognises something special when she feels it.
There are some hilarious situations within Man Cuffed especially as Meg is an actress and has a propensity towards drama. Which is also the complete opposite of Mac’s stoicism; surprisingly their differences make their friendship natural and comfortable despite the electricity flowing between them.
As their friendship develops following the departure of Mac’s female buddy, it is increasingly difficult for Mac to maintain his boundaries with Meg especially as she likes to push his buttons. The heat between Mac and Meg inevitably leads to a giant fire, however, Mac has a lot of emotional baggage which prevents him from lowering his barriers to allow him to become vulnerable with anyone, not just Meg.
Luckily, Mac has an amazing support system in his family which he hadn’t realised until this point, allowing him to come to terms with past events and move forward to find his own happily ever after.
I have to mention the fantastic Flash Mob within the narrative, I would be completely on board for something like that, just saying 😂
