One way or another, baby, I always get what I'm owed.

"I do my job without hesitation, but Dawn has me questioning everything."

But I can’t let that happen to Dawn.

She’s innocent, pure. She doesn’t know evil like I do.

I’ll do anything to protect her.

Even if it breaks me.

Dirty Debt by Teagan Kade is a great bad boy mafia romance story that you can't stop reading until you reach the end. A well-written read of suspense, violence, twists and turns, a bit of humor, hot sex scenes, which all leads to love and a HEA.

Dirty Debt by Teagan Kade is a Bad Boy Romance.

Max works as an enforcer for Saul, New York's biggest crime lord. Max doesn't enjoy his job, but there isn't a whole lot out there for an ex-boxer and ex-con. To Max, what he does is just business, pure and simple. Until Saul hands him his latest assignment, Dawn. Dawn's ex-boyfriend Rick took out a $50,000 loan from the mob in her name, then skipped town 6 weeks ago. Now Dawn's on the hook for the loan. She just doesn't know it yet. Until Max shows

I think this was my first by this author. I didn't hate it, but it also wasn't my favorite.

Dawn chose a real winner in her last ex- a guy who took out a loan with the bad guys in her name, without her knowledge. She doesn't even know until Max comes. He's the muscle behind the boss, and ex boxer, - the guy shakes you down to get the money. Except.... he can't shake her down. He has a soft spot for her, considering she didn't even know about the debt.

Does the boss care? No. But he does give Max

This book was seriously so action packed. This couple had to go through so much crap together. This book had a more mafia feel with crime bosses in Vegas and New York after Max and Dawn. Hands down it had one of the hottest scenes ever, like panty melting, butt clenching, holy Molly give me some of that. I loved it.
Dawn is having to deal with her Ex taking a loan out in her name to Saul a mob boss in the big Apple, he sends out Max to shake her up and to pay back the debt. Max knows something ai

The only option left then was to squeeze the money out of Dawn instead. Max and Dawn have one week in which to chase down her ex and make good on the loan, ...more

I voluntarily reviewed this ARC book. Max, an ex-con after tragic circumstances has lost his way. Believing he can only use his skills in the criminal underworld, he gave up his dreams of boxing to collect funds from those who do not pay his boss. Dawn is a young woman who lost her dreams to the wrong man, but even she did not know her ex signed her life away to the mob. It is lust on first sight when Max is sent after Dawn. Max doesn't know what hit him but he knows that he can't hurt Dawn and ...more

They get themselves into mess after mess. Will Max save Dawn? Will they both survive? You must read this steamy, action packed story and find out how it works out for Max and Dawn!!

Dirty Debt was a fantastic read! I loved Max and Dawn from the very beginning. Strong characters with an amazing story to tell. The author did a great job with this one, I loved every minute of it!

When Dawn becomes Max’s next target, both of their lives takes drastic turns. With both of their lives on the line they don’t plan on giving up without getting what Max’s boss, Saul, wants.
Dawn and Max have to go through h*ll but it is all worth it in the end.

A great example of how to write a Bad Boy/Mafia book.

The plot moves along at an almost breathless pace and includes all the vital elements, violence, betrayal, hot sex, and, finally, a satisfying denouement.

Max and Dawn are proof that opposites attract, and boy do the sparks fly!

Great book

Action packed right from the start;murder, mayhem, kidnapping, mafia, underground fights, a serious road trip to Vegas, car theft, destruction, a bad boy with a good side, a strong independent feisty woman, plenty of twists and turns, intrigue and romance. Loved this book beginning to end, well worth your time to read. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I feel like everything in my life has led me to you.

Dawn's gambling ex skips town after taking a loan out in her name from a very shady man. Max is sent to collect the money from her, any way he can. Great read with well written characters and interesting story line. Enjoy!!

Surprise Happier-Than-Expected Ending

I liked this story between Dawn and Max. Things seem somewhat doomed for them but unexpected things happen to change all that. Lots of danger and action. Editing was not great in a few spots, but it was a sweet love story.

Some debts are just hard to pay back.

Dawn and Max's story is a steamroller... every obstacle they beat causes another one to appear. Can they deal with this debt and survive?
Happy reading : )

This book went by quick as there was a lot of action happening. While the romance was rather instant, you don't really see that too much as so much is going on. You have to go with the flow, as there is no way it would all take place in real life, but it is a very good story line. ...more

Love the humor banter between characters. Even though there was a real threat regarding her life and he wanted to right the wrong done in her name they had great chemistry. Nice quick read too
