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.


The Fighting Connelly series is a great set of stories about love, family and loyalty.

In Kelly’s Corner is Kelly and Bee’s story. Kelly is back from a long, hard career in the armed services. Trying to deal with finally being stateside and losing his best friend, Kelly is having a rough time dealing. Bee is a successful tech guru on the rise. She is also Kelly’s best friend sister. Bee is love with Kelly. Kelly is in love with Bee. Neither will do anything about it and do not feel they should be with each other for one reason or another. When Bee gets a stalker that starts bringing up a past she has been trying to keep hidden for her brothers sake…Kelly vows to protect her at all costs. Bee is the least of his problems when his father put the family gym is jeopardy.

Will Bee be able to keep her brother’s secrets? Will Kelly save his family from the local mob? Will Bee and Kelly see how much they love each other?

You will love this ride with mobsters, shoot outs and hot sex scenes. A definite must read. I won’t be reviewing In Jack’s Arms but I have read it and it is an awesome continuation to the Connelly series. Jack and Abby will make you swoon from the first few pages. Thier story is sweet and hot with action packed scenes thrown in. A definite must read after In Kelly’s Corner.  I am so very, very excited to read the third book about their brother Finn.

  1. “mobsters, shoot outs and hot sex scenes”? What more could I want? 😀 This sounds really good though and from what I’ve been seeing in the reviews it seems right up my alley too!
