Dakota Willink is 20% done with We Own Tonight: On chapter 4...great so far. I'm just having 20 year flashbacks of New Kids on the Block. I swear that's what Corinne is writing about.

Oh - and I think the hero is definitely modeled after Donnie Wahlberg (bad boy in the band, now doing TV acting, etc)!
