Blurb:
Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the “values” Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O’Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name . . . yet she still can’t stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian’s own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast-and how hard-she’s falling for him.

Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at “hello,” even if she’s more inclined to say good-bye to an O’Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn’t, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying-and dying-for . . .

Excerpt #2
Which only served to make her feel more awkward. Olivia threw up her hands. โ€œI donโ€™t know how to do this.โ€
โ€œDo what?โ€
โ€œThis.โ€ She motioned between the two of them. โ€œThis isnโ€™t normal.โ€
He laughed again, quieter this time. โ€œWhat does normal look like?โ€ When she would have balked, he held out his hand. โ€œSit down. Youโ€™re making me twitchy with all the pacing. Iโ€™m not laughing at you. Iโ€™m laughing at the absurdity of this entire situation. So humor me and tell me what normal looks like.โ€
She didnโ€™t know. That was the problem. Olivia wasnโ€™t sure sheโ€™d recognize normal if it hit her in the face. But she wasnโ€™t quite willing to share with Cillian exactly how messed up her childhood had been, outstanding chemistry or not. She inched closer to the bed and perched on the edge, but even with three feet between them, she felt like a lightning rod to his storm, full of vibrating energy and impending boom. She pulled at the edge of her T-shirt. โ€œYou knowโ€”weโ€™d meet somewhere normal.โ€
โ€œWe met at a bar.โ€
โ€œMost relationships donโ€™t start in a bar.โ€ She realized what she said and shoved to her feet. โ€œStrike that. I didnโ€™t mean relationship. I justโ€ฆโ€ Not sure what she was trying to say, she charged on. โ€œMaybe a coffee shop. Youโ€™d be behind me in line and say something witty, and Iโ€™d laugh and youโ€™d spend the next ten minutes charming me until I gave you my number.โ€
She was almost afraid to look at him and see his expression. His silence said it all. โ€œThatโ€™s stupid, isnโ€™t it?โ€
โ€œNo, not at all. It sounds nice.โ€
Olivia faced him. โ€œYouโ€™re humoring me.โ€
โ€œSit down.โ€ He waited for her to obey before he spoke again. โ€œIโ€™m not. It does sound nice.โ€ He carefully leaned back against the headboard. โ€œSo I charm your number out of you, huh? I must be pretty charming.โ€
She shot him a look. โ€œIn this scenario, yes.โ€
Cillian laughed. โ€œThen Iโ€™d call you.โ€
She edged over to sit on the other side of the mattress against the headboard. It was such a silly thing they were doing, but after how intense the rest of the night had been, maybe silly was exactly what they both needed. โ€œA call instead of a text? I must have made an impression.โ€
โ€œMore like I was determined to make the right impression. Texts are lazy, and you canโ€™t get a good read on someone that way. So Iโ€™d call.โ€
She hadnโ€™t spent much time datingโ€ฆwell, ever, reallyโ€ฆbut even she knew that was different from the norm. โ€œIโ€™d think you were a freak for calling, but Iโ€™d answer because I was intrigued.โ€
โ€œWeโ€™d talk for a while, feeling each other out.โ€
โ€œMore like me trying to figure out if youโ€™re a psycho.โ€
He grinned. โ€œOr that. Iโ€™d say all the things a normal guy would say. Youโ€™d be reassured that I wasnโ€™t likely to chloroform you and chain you up in my torture-slash-sex dungeon.โ€
โ€œThatโ€™sโ€ฆcomforting.โ€
โ€œIt would be, yes.โ€
She laughed softly. โ€œWeโ€™d set up a date at the end of the call.โ€
โ€œSomewhere nice and public and nonthreatening.โ€
โ€œNow youโ€™re getting the idea.โ€ She stared at the ceiling, part of her kind of weirded out at how well the conversation was flowing with him playing along. โ€œDinner, no movie. Movies are for people who are too intimidated by the thought of first-date conversation that they chicken out.โ€
โ€œThe conversation would be titillating.โ€
โ€œYou think so?โ€ She rolled onto her side to face him, finding that heโ€™d done the same. His bandage was a vivid reminder of why they were there in the first place. Olivia frowned. โ€œHowโ€™re you feeling?โ€
โ€œThatโ€™s not part of the game.โ€ He yawned. โ€œSo weโ€™d drink pretentious wine that neither one of us liked and order things that we could barely pronounce and, at the end of it, weโ€™d sheepishly admit that we didnโ€™t like either the drinks or the food, and weโ€™d go find a food truck and laugh at ourselves.โ€
It was an attractive picture he painted. Normal and kind of sweet and something sheโ€™d never have the option of doing. She made a face. โ€œInstead, you wander into my bar because your familyโ€™s territory encompasses it and we have a quick fuck in the alley.โ€ She should regret it. She knew she should. There were thousands of dating books and columns out there advising women to withhold sex until they had some sort of commitment.
Except she didnโ€™t regret a damn thing.
