Finbar Donahue, former Army Ranger, walked on the wild side in Iraq, but now he lives in the shadows. After his evasive partner, Les, was shot in a random drive-by, Finn discovers cash is siphoned monthly. He fights to keep his investment company afloat. When the late partner’s girlfriend, Amy Kintyre, applies for his bookkeeping job, Finn suspects she knows about his company drain and hires her.
Amy needs a nine-to-five with free evenings and weekends to get her fashion design business back on track. She unearths Les’ s secret bank account and alerts Finn. Freezing of the money laundering account sets off havoc within an Irish gang. Amy witnesses a gang fight between a brutal ISIS fundraising organization and the Irish. Desperate to escape a stalker’s crosshairs, she seeks refuge with Finn. As danger heats up, sparks fly hotter.
Les is alive. After cheating the Irish mob, he became their target. Mistaken identity took the life of his disabled twin brother. Now Les makes another deal—trading Amy and stolen drugs for their forgiveness. Stakes are high as Finn tracks assassins across the San Bernardino Mountains. If he gets her back, can he trust her?

Thank you for spotlighting Deadly Alliance. Do you like heroes to be as strong as steel but gooey in the middle. Finbar Donahue cares about his dad who suffers from COPD. Finn checks the oxygen levels in his dad’s portable oxygen generator. He puts himself between his woman and danger. In another scene he serves dinner on his porch. His mouth is perfect. From the sweet way he smiles when he sees her to the way he uses it on her body. His words tilt her world, rev her engine. “Baby, I can’t sleep. Come over here and f--- me ‘till I pass out.” With his arms, he treats her as if she’s a feather. Those same arms knock out a bad guy with a single punch. He makes her feel protected but intimidates everyone else. He’s got a sharp mind with a wicked sense of humor. He makes her laugh. He loves her hard.ReplyDelete
