How steamy is it? Hot Damn

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!!

Holy hotness Boston!

Omg. Joe Arden should alway do a Boston accent. I will absolutely buy an audio book based on the narrators and Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are two of my faves. I’ve never read this author before and the story was a solid 4 star with the narrators pushing it up to a 5 star easily.

great listen

I really enjoy Maxine's voice at times Joe's voice is extremely quiet or not sure of a good word ... clear? i almost had the volume up all the way but couldn't get it any higher ... great listen.

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...💗💗💗

Stay for More

Dare to Stay is the second book in McLaughlin's dark suspense series. Filled with intrigue and delicious sexiness, the story focuses on Chris, a secondary character from book one and Molly, a new character. Opposites attract is the theme here with a sweet Molly and Chris the criminal. Tender moments between the main characters is interspersed with guns and gang fighting - the balance is just right and made for a satisfying read.

Narrators presented the heavy accents well and delivered an entertaining experience. I can't wait to move on to book three next and see where this is going next. The overall ARC is addictive and I have to know what happens!

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.
