Overview

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 it 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.

Meet the Author

When I'm not chasing after my wild preschooler, I like to write super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica. I live in Texas with a husband who could easily snag a job as an extra on History Channel's new Viking series, a sweet but rowdy four-year-old, and Bosley, our Great Dane with major mommy issues.

I also have another dirty-book writing alter ego--Lolita Lopez--who writes deliciously steamy tales for Ellora's Cave, Forever Yours/Grand Central, Mischief/Harper Collins UK, Siren Publishing and Cleis Press.

There was a lot going on in this book, but not so much that you couldn't keep up. While I did figure out who the stalker was relatively quickly in the book, that's just how my mind works. Kelly and Bee's relationship develops and progresses quite swiftly. I really like them together. I also appreciated the flip of financial roles this couple exhibited. Male pride aside, Kelly handled that badly untiil he practically faced being alone - aka: typical male fashion that Roxie wrote perfectly. There were a few sub-plots that I would have liked to see a bit more of, but none were lacking in closure. Some of the characters gave me pause, but they were primarily focused on in a previous series that I have not read. I'm sure their devolopment was targeted there. This did not hinder my ability to follow who was who throughout this read. I'm looking forward to reading more of Roxie's books.

Loved all the lead players, especially Kelly. Look forward to other books out on Jack and Finn. I also enjoyed Michael "Winn" Winchester...hope Roxie will write his story. He sounds sexy and mysterious. PLEASE!! I'm a new reader and look forward to more from Roxie! JR

Several books included for .99. Great deal just for Kelly's book alone. Thanks Roxie for another great book. Very suspenseful!

First the Russians, and now the Connollys…..thank you Roxie! Roxie Rivera continues her love affair with strong, passionate and devoted men in the first edition of the Fighting Connolly’s. Due to the cross over characters and a storyline that essentially runs parallel to Sergei from Her Russian Protectors, I would definitely recommend you read that series first. However, you could read this story without having indulged in the pleasure of the Russians, but what fun would that be! In Kelly’s Corner covers a multitude of scenarios, including a tech genius suffering from unrequited love, self-absorbed destructive relatives, stalkers, cyber espionage, blackmail and a betrayal that will ultimately break your heart.  A worthy spin-off to Her Russian Protectors, I can’t wait to see what emotional turmoil Roxie has in store for the next Connolly brother!

Roxie is so consistent with her writing! Can never get enough of her books, constantly waiting on the next one as I just can't get enough! The character are so lifelike and with each book in the series, you can keep up with the gang and see how they are getting on! Love it!!

I pretty much only liked Kelly and his two brothers. Bee's character was very unrealistic for me, I just had a hard time relating to her. Also the enormous amount of Russian and Albanian mobsters in this book threw me off. I couldn't keep anyone straight and it was never explained how Bee knew all of them. Overall, it was just a highly unrealistic book for me and I was left wanting more background information.

Terrific first book in this spin off. Appearances and tie-ins from Roxie's Her Russian Protector series. I love seeing old friends show up and make appearances. I really liked that Kelly's struggle to give in to his feelings for Bee are short lived in the book; even though it had been on going for years we weren't subjected to all the angst. Kelly lives by a code; honor, respect, loyalty. Bee is smart and naive, kind, generous and loves Kelly deeply. Great characters all around. Lots of twists and turns in this one.  Highly recommended author and series Adult read

I agree with another reader - there was a lot going on with this book...in fact, it was almost too much. This was just an ok read for me.

Romantic Suspense Trilogy That Is A "KO"! This is the first book in the trilogy and it involves a hot, ex marine turned bodyguard and a multi-billionaire, genius who just so happens to be the lil' sis of his best friend. Bee needs Kelly's help from a stalker and black-mailer because she has no one else to help her. But asking for his help won't be easy since she's been in love with him all her life. The book can be read as a stand alone book. It contains interesting characters, an intense plot and believable real life family issues. The first person narrative takes some getting used to and the typos can be overlooked. I recommend this book to those who like MMA, Military, and Hot Alphas.

Just discovered this writer, liking the Russian protector series she does and this includes characters from those books. Could be a little more refined in the sex scenes, but I like the intersecting story lines.

Great beginning to a new series. Really enjoyed Kelly and Bea's story and catching up with characters from Her Russian Protector series. Full of hot romance and suspense. Now on to read Jack's story.

Reading the overview or even the begining of this book is misleading because despite it's superfical reseblemance to formula romance it is anything but. With strong multidimisional characters and a plot with many unexpected twists and turns this book is a delight.
