Six years ago, Keegan Quinn was working for his father in the Irish Mob. When a shootout left him shattered in more ways than one, he left the family business and opened a bar in downtown Chicago. Now with his father sick and the FBI investigating the family, his old life is threatening to tear his new one apart.
The last thing FBI agent Jon Brookfield expected to find while investigating the mob was a kind, soft-spoken man like Keegan Quinn. Dating wasn’t in Jon’s plans, but he’s willing to make changes. When the Quinn family business and Keegan’s ex-boyfriend threaten to come between them, Jon has to decide just how important their newfound relationship is to him.
This novel is intended for adult audiences, and contains swearing, violence, and sex scenes.
These books are very comforting. Are they realistic? No, definitely not. But if you’re okay with things like a fluffy crime family, and FBI agents who care more about dating then their jobs, you’ll be okay with this one.
Keegan hasn’t been involved in his father’s criminal business in 6 years. In these 6 years he has managed to become the owner of the successful restaurant ‘Wilde’. But despite the fact that he doesn’t want to be involved in his father’s business, he does love his father. And when his father gets sick, Keegan has to think about the family business as well..
Jon is an FBI agent who is investigating crime boss Brendan Quinn. And that’s why he is sent out to interview his son, Keegan Quinn. What Jon didn’t expect was for Keegan to be so beautiful. Or so flirty. When Jon reports back to his boss he decides to be honest and tells her he doesn’t want to be involved in the Quinn investigation anymore because he would like to ask Keegan out on a date (yes, just like that).
So that’s what happens. Keegan thinks Jon has come back to ask more questions, but he never expected him to come and ask Keegan out on a date…
There is no relationship angst whatsoever in these books and I really like that. I wouldn’t necessarily say this is all insta-love because these guys do start out dating. Except the words boyfriend and relationship are mentioned awfully fast, so I guess it’s pretty insta-lovey anyway.
There were a few moments where I was just a tiny bit bored, but then something would happen to keep my interest again so I never actually went there.
Overall, this was a comforting low-angst read. But don’t forget to put on your suspension of disbelief pants with this series.
I will definitely read the rest of the books in this series. Lots of interesting characters to look forward to!
