Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.
As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.
Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.
Bad For Her by Christi Barth Review
So I’m not really into the mobster trope. Normally, they tend to be a bit…rough and violent. It’s really the same reason I don’t love MC romances. But I liked Bad For Her Because it was about an ex-mobster who was trying save his family by being good.
I really had a hard time picturing Rafe as a mobster. He already seemed like a good guy. And can mobsters really be good guys? Anyways, I liked both Rafe and Mollie. They were both well developed.
One of the things I love about Barth is her creation of the secondary characters. I don’t think she should every write standalones because her supporting cast will always need their own stories! But because of this, I’m totally looking forward to Rafe’s brother’s stories.
