After a stalker breaks into her home, internet entrepreneur Bee Langston decides Kelly Connolly is the only man who can help her—but seeking help from the former Marine isn’t easy, especially after she made a spectacular fool of herself trying to kiss the sinfully sexy bodyguard.
When Kelly spots Bee weaving her way through the Houston nightspot where he’s working security, all those feelings he’s desperately tried to deny for his best friend’s sister come flooding to the surface. He’ll do anything to keep her safe, even if means getting up close and personal with the one woman he simply can’t have.
Soon, Bee’s stalker isn’t his only problem. His gambling addict father is tangled in a mess of debts to two of Houston’s toughest loan sharks. With the family gym on the line, there’s only one way for Kelly to make everything right. He agrees to fight for the Albanian mob in an underground bare-knuckle fighting tournament.
But winning the tournament and saving his family’s legacy comes at a high price—one that just might cost Bee her life. Four Boundless Stars
The Fighting Connollys is a spin off series to the Her Russian Protector series. I've read book one in that series back in 2013. There are a lot of secondary characters who have books in the Her Russian Protector series, however you don't need to read those to fully enjoy In Kelly's Corner. But I Will. :) Clementine did a phenomenal job on the voices and accents in this story. Every character had a different voice. There was even a difference between narration and inner monologue than speaking voices. It was brilliantly done! She brought this incredibly steamy, exciting and sometimes crushing story to life. So why not a five? I guessed who the stalker was in the beginning of the story. I'm not sure if the author meant for that to happen or not. Overall, a highly enjoyable story and I hope Clementine stays on to finish the series.
