Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.

I had a plan.

Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?

Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.

That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn't buying that either.

Too bad for him, I won't let anyone get in the way of my mission.

Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He's the worst kind of wrong- and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.

Because they took her from me, and I'm going to make them pay.

*** This is a standalone novel***

Yes, yes, yes! This is how erotic romance should be done!

Mackenzie Wilder is desperate. Her friend Talia has gone missing, and she knows it's the freakin' mob who's responsible. With apathy from the Boston PD and the FBI, Mackenzie decides to go undercover at Slainte, the club that Talia was working at when she disappeared. As a third generation Irish-American and the daughter of a boxing champion, Mack is well versed in the language of the streets and of the gangsters who run them, and she's more than capable of taking care of herself.

Lachlan Crow is in line to be the #2 in the infamous MacKenna Syndicate group of gangsters when a fiery young woman shows up at his club and knocks his best boxer on his ass. Before he knows what the hell is happening, Lachlan is up to his eyeballs in desperate, all consuming need for Mack, despite not fully trusting her. With bullets flying and bodies dropping left and right, Lachlan and Mack will have to learn to trust each other if they've got any hope at surviving.

Holy crap, CROW is FANTASTIC!!! I love stories that don't feature characters who are sugar sweet, and I ADORE stores that feature characters who are just plain bad. It's a nice change from the typical erotic romances. And both Lachlan and Mack are two such characters. She doesn't run a knitting circle and he doesn't play on a hockey league on the weekend with his bros...nope, she's a boxer and he kills rival gangsters like it's a game of Duck Hunt and runs gambling rings.

Dear sweet baby jesus with a cherry on top, the sex in this book was just magnificent. The insane chemistry between Mack and Lachlan was such a turn on, as was the unapologetic way he pounced on her whenever he saw her. Their sex was rough and raunchy and panty-meltingly delicious!!

Bottom Line: CROW was full of incredibly dangerous men doing insanely violent things to each other. There's several rape or attempted rape scenes in this book, so those with sensitivity should take note. This story is messy and violent and so so excellent. It's not for everyone, but those of you who like your bad boys to be actually BAD, I have no doubt you'll love CROW as much as I did.
