Happy Release Day to Lauren Layne – Cuff Me is live!
Check out my Q&A with Lauren and a fantastic giveaway below, and read my review for Cuff Me here!
Author Interview: Lauren Layne
What did you love most about writing Vincent’s character?
I think how genuinely “head up his @$$” he is. You know every now and then you encounter a macho hero, and you don’t quite buy that he’d be so oblivious. For me, Vincent has always been the brother that really was that clueless. He doesn’t relate to people in a “normal” way, and it takes him so adorably long to figure out why what he he feels for Jill is different than what he feels for other people.
What was your favorite scene to write in Cuff Me?
It’s a toss-up between the doughnut scene (you’ll know when you read it), and the two of them alone together in the motel. Both tugged at my heartstrings, because we really get to see Vincent at his most vulnerable.
What makes Vincent and Jill’s relationship different from the other couples’ in the series?
Vincent and Jill have known each other for quite awhile before the start of the book, so it’s a different kind of love story altogether. Instead of there being the classic “meet cute” these are two people who know each other incredibly well, but haven’t quite figured out how perfect they are together.
Who would you cast as Vincent and Jill?
I always had Kristen Bell in mind for Jill and someone with a sort of Chris Messina vibe for Vin.
Would you ever write Marco’s story?
I think so! I know exactly how his story unfolds in my head (and it is sex-ay!) but for now the series is a 3-book series ☺
Who is your favorite Moretti brother?
Anthony. I’m a sucker for the strong, silent types. Although I also sort of have to say that since I named his character after my husband.

ARRESTED BY LOVE
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. . .
