Release & Review: Weight of the Badge by T.R. Cupak
Weight of the Badge is an angsty, forbidden friends to lovers, contemporary romance, set in K. Bromberg's Everyday Heroes World that will shatter your heart and piece it back together again!
No one can prepare you for the weight that the badge carries.
Born into a prestigious family and groomed to be the next Beaumont to take over the family business when my cold-hearted father retires isn't as glamorous as it seems. My entire life mapped out by the one person I loathe--my father. But instead of obeying my dad's demand to return to Harvard and complete my college education, I enrolled at the police academy with my best friend, Deacon Winslow.
Deacon has always been like a brother to me, and now, we're brothers bound by the badge and blue uniform we wear, and the oath we took to serve and protect. I'd lay down my life for him and him for me. There was only one rule between us--stay away from her.
Britney Winslow, my best friend's younger sister, is off-limits because of a silly agreement I made with her brother when we were kids. Now that we're older, that promise is proving to be more challenging to keep. Britney's kind heart and beauty are hard to ignore, and the way she makes me feel whenever she's near is blurring the line I vowed I would never cross until a horrific incident turns everyone's lives upside down.
Weight of the Badge is Book 1 of The Badge Duet.

T.R. Cupak was born and raised in the suburbs of a Bay Area city in California. She now lives in a quiet town south from where she grew up with her husband and their Shih Tzu Harley and German shepherd Mac.
Saying she is obsessed with cars is an understatement. Since her sixteenth birthday, she's had at least thirty-three vehicles. Cupak is a self-proclaimed wine and bourbon enthusiast. She also loves a wide variety of music--anything from classical, EDM, rock, pop, country, and heavy metal, to name a few.
When she's not at work or busy writing, you can find her curled up with a good book or binge-watching a random series while enjoying a glass of wine or bourbon neat.

I have been patiently waiting for this story and man, it did not disappoint. Once again, T.R. Cupak has made me teary-eyed with her words. This story is raw, emotional and not for the faint of heart. The ending was rough for me. This story portrays strength, compassion, and love in every sense of the word. Sometimes the "weight of the badge" is just too much to bear.
There are parallel stories woven throughout this story. Deacon and Britney, siblings and best friends. Kade and Deacon best friends and brothers in blue. Britney and Kade, more than friends with feelings between them that Deacon had forbade. Deacon and Sydnee, star-crossed lovers kept apart due to stubbornness. When Deacon and Kade are hurt in the line of duty, Britney is torn between taking care of both and wanting what her heart wants. These characters all have depth and demons.
