Publisher's Summary

Bruised and bloodied on Boston's mean streets, Chris O'Brien is reeling from the loss of his childhood best friend. But after barely escaping a hit placed on his head, Chris is desperate to live. A chance encounter leads him to the perfect safe haven - the home of a girl from his childhood, Molly Lachlan. Before he has fully considered what it would mean to involve her in his mess, he lets her take him home.
For Molly, letting Chris into her house means also letting him into her life. Danger and desperation are coming off of him like steam, and yet she can't bring herself to turn him away. His bad-boy charm always had a hold on her, but now there's a soulfulness and sorrow in him that she's never seen before. And despite the heart-stopping risk of helping him, she hopes against all reason that he'll stay....
Contains mature themes.

Fantastic mob story!! Stellar narration!

Chris and Molly are an unlikely couple. Both grew up as neighbors with very little interaction. The difference in their upbringing is night and day. Her father was a respected physician .... his father a mobster from Boston's South Side. Life takes them down different paths .... he follows in the family gang, she becomes a teacher. When she finds him wounded and near death fate brings them together and you find yourself wrapped up in their story. This book has everything .... action, violence, love, sex ... So credit worthy and the performance is amazing. Five big stars!!

Loved It!!!

I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this one, but it has ended up being one of my top favorites! Love Joe's Southie accent. He does some unbelievable accents and is incredibly sexy. Laughed, cried and enjoyed this story. All the history they had and the sensitive side if Chris was amazing...💗💗💗
