Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she's not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can't seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne. Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he's landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem.

Their first sexy scene starts with Lex patting down Kellach and then our hero turns the table. It's hot while they're both into it. They start kissing but it gets really intense really fast. When they come up for air, Lex wants to end the encounter and tells Kellach "No" and to let her down. He decides that because she won't admit how wound up she is, he's now going to force an orgasm on her. She tells him no again and he then sticks his hand into her panties for the first time.

I'm so skeeved out - I hope I can return this book.

The narrator was great though. Going to see what else he's done.

A clear-eyed account of the realities of life in America’s overlooked heartland, The View from Flyover Country is a piercing critique of the labor exploitation, race relations, gentrification, media bias, and other aspects of the post-employment economy that gave rise to a president who rules like an autocrat. The View from Flyover Country is necessary listening for anyone who believes that the only way for America to fix its problems is to first discuss them with honesty and compassion.

Sarah Kendzior has a way off penetrating the noise and the fog of our time to lay out just what was going on in the United States a half decade after the Financial Crisis. For me, it was a reflection of what was also happening in my surroundings and to my brother and to my mother. Everybody should read all her stuff.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway - until he admits his student visa has expired and he's in the country illegally. Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him.

The love story was sweet and I loved how authentic the characters where. The narrator was very good at performing the dialog and accents, but the story is written in 1st person and she READS you the story instead of TELLING the story - the dissonance bothered me, but might not bother everyone.
