Kelly: Dark Irish Mafia Romance
(O’Sullivan Brothers Book 2)

He’s the underboss in his mafia brotherhood, and women have no place in his world. As a good girl with an overprotective dad, she’s been warned against his kind time and again. But when her father’s corruption shatters her world, he all but forces her into the mafioso’s bed.


I’m a busy friggin’ man and priority number one is destroying the south-of-the-border bastardos who’ve been dealing blow on our turf. Then I find out someone who’s supposed to be in our pocket is on the take with this rival cartel, and things go from bad to FUBAR.

That backstabbing jagoff owes me big. Unfortunately, the only thing he’s got to offer is the one thing I don’t want. His daughter. Now I’m fighting to keep control of our territory and I’ve got to babysit this beautiful, mouthy babe. I’ll keep Marlowe as collateral, and I’ll take what I want, when I want, whether she likes it or not.


After my dad’s secrets and lies blow up in his face, he bargains with the only priceless gem he has . . . me. He practically gives me away to none other than Kelly O’Sullivan, a rough-talking mafia man he’s warned me about for years.

I’m infuriated I’ve been put in this dicey position. It’s my father who should pay the price for his double dealing, not me. It’s impossible. Kelly is impossible. He’s intimidating. Overbearing. Scary. Sexy. He dominates me from day one, taking a wrecking ball to my defenses and wreaking havoc with my desires.

I’m pretty sure I hate him. I definitely don’t trust him. But when the cartel makes it clear they want me too, what other choice do I have?

What the Reviews Say

Wickedly sexy, this book is going to get you all hot and bothered! These O’Sullivan brothers are violent, off the charts hot, extremely protective, and have hearts of gold.

There is no denying the chemistry these two have but there is also danger lurking around the corner. Can they battle through it all and find happiness in the end?

This book will give you all the feels. Dark and captivating. 2 totally opposite people. One determined woman who refuses to bend to one strong & determined man who wants her. When your roads keep leading you back to that one man & then you start seeing a different side to him, can you resist?

This author does what she does best. She gives us a dark, gritty world filled with violence. Of course best of all, it has hot and heavy interactions between our two main characters.

Holy Marlowe and Kelly. This book was awesome! Marlowe and Kelly are off the charts. He is over the top alpha and she is a strong leading lady. This book also had me laughing out loud at their banter. Great read!!
