Well this took me by surprise and I really enjoyed it 😊 Jake is snatched by supposed Irish Maria after he tried to save the incineration of a body. What evolves from this is an unsuspecting romance and connection between a cop and a gang leader. The Irish brother connection between Dillon & Roan was actually sweet and loyalty went a long way. Think I need a bit more from these boys !

I thought the love I had for Wal in Throttled could not be matched... And then K goes ahead and writes Snatched and suddenly I'm fan-girling like a fool over Dilon and Jake (and don't even get me started on Roan, OMG!).

Snatched will keep you engaged from the start, where you're thrown right into the action immediately. I love that this author assumes you're intelligent enough to follow along with the action and doesn't pull punches with the narrative. You can tell that K has spent time in this w

Delicious 

From the moment that Dilan kidnaps Jake this book just gets better and better. 
A Irish mafia boss and a coroner shouldn't have anything in common but when attraction strikes and they are forced to spend time together they might be more compatible than they first think. They just have to manage to keep what they have a secret while dealing with rival gangs, betrayal and the plan of getting away without any fall back. 

I love how under all of Dilans tough exterior is someone who cares dee

I liked the first book in this series more - this one was good but nothing I'll remember. I struggled a little bit with the believability of it all. Interesting characters, lots of action but the romance was very instant and it wrapped up a little too easily. ...more

Jake is a coroner, just going about his job picking up another dead body. Just a day in the life, when him and his body are kidnapped.

Dilan is an Irish mob “boss”. He doesn’t really want the job but to protect his brother he’ll do whatever it takes. Including stealing a body that he thinks will incriminate his brother. Oh yea, and stealing the coroner too. He has a hole in his back that needed to be fixed up.

Dilan’s first kiss with a man shouldn’t have been with the man he snatched, and Jake’s f

Can I even truly describe how much I love Snatched? No, no I cannot. It's a heck of a lot though.

Jake is perfect as the competent, stubborn, noble medical examiner, and Dilan just broke my heart as the reluctant mobster backed into a corner. Their scenes together were electric and compelling, and I truly wanted to see them make it out of the mess they found themselves in. And anytime Dilan's brother Roan appeared on the page, I pretty much squealed in delight. He was absolutely my favourite cha

First class read

This book caught me from page one and kept me hooked throughout. From the moment big bad gang leader Dilon, kidnaps Jake, I knew we were in for a wild ride. I love the whole good boy/bad boy trope, and Ms Sterling does it so well.

What followed was an engrossing and interesting story of double dealing, treachery, complicated relationships, a mixed bunch of characters, secrets and lies and a good dollop of lust, humour and snarky comments. Everything I love about this lady's work.

Irish mob boss or priest or lover - Dilan O’Shea ! ❤️

Fascinating story of the head of the Charles Hill Gang, Dilan O’Shea and Jake Tyler, Chief Medical Examiner for the police department - and what an exciting story it is! The story begins with Jake and his assistant picking up an unidentified body covered with a combination of shamrocks and Aryan themed tattoos. Then everything goes badly for Jake as he is snatched along with the body! This story will take you right into Dilan’s Irish mob worl

I really enjoyed this book. Dilan is the leader of an Irish mob who kidnaps the other MC, Jake, who is the medical examiner for the police. There's basically an instant attraction, even though Dilan doesn't want to involve Jake any more than he has to because the mob isn't too happy with Dilan and his brother Roan, and might be trying to get rid of them.

I was okay with the insta-love just because both the MCs are older (late 30s), and at that age you've seen and done a lot, and I think the autho

This is the first series I’ve read by this author an I’m absolutely enjoying it. I already need more of these guys.

Jake- a medical examiner never thought this would happen to him. what happens when you get kidnapped by an Irish mobster? You go with him of course. Oh and you give him a run for his money. Sassy mouth and all the smart assery there could be.

Dilan- Irish mobster, maybe. He’s had a hell of a life. Bad childhood. Bad mistake’s after the other. He just wants what’s left of his family

I love finding new to me authors, especially M/M authors. This book is full of action and suspense and is fast-paced. An Irish mob boss and a coroner shouldn’t be together, but they just work. Dilan (mob) and Jake (coroner) have this undeniable chemistry once you get past the fact that Dilan kidnaps Jake. The more time they spend together the more they find out just how compatible they are. I am really impressed that this author make you love a murder and are on his side in the end. This is a p ...more

Coroner doctor is kidnapped by the bad guy leader of the Irish mafia so the doctor can treat an injury the bad guy received from one of his other mafia "friends." A little of everything in this entertaining book similar to "Zero to the Bone," one of my all time favorites (without Zero's quirky dialogue). Of course, the doctor and bad guy have an immediate attraction, and, of course, the bad guy is not nearly as bad as he seems and, of course, the bad guy has a carefree whore of a brother who kee ...more

K. Sterling has a gift of creating worlds and characters that you can get lost in..Jake and Dilan are no exception. Dilan must figure out how to drop the masquerade to create his truth in Sanctuary Mills.

Snatched was fast paced and slightly dangerous. I couldn't help rooting for "bad" boy Dilan.

If you like insta love, gay for you, and bad boys that are truly good Snatched is the book for you. It makes for a great weekend read.

Never disappointed!!

I’m amazed every time I read a K. Sterling book. She has an incredible talent for creating lovable ‘bad’ guys and intricate stories and Jake and Dilan’s is no different. This book is full of action, suspense and of course a lot of feels. I was pretty snowed on whodunnit till close to the end.
Although it’s the second in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Anxiously looking forward to the next one!

I really loved this fast or characters

Dilan, Roan, Jake and of course Wal and Marcus were all awesome. I loved how Dilan and Jake were so new to love and did so honestly and deeply. Two grown men so happily and stupidly in love with each other. I hate how the brothers were betrayed by someone so loyal and I don't think that last betrayal was necessary but it is what it is.I just love their HEA... looking forward to following Roans escapades for a while

Sweet take on cop and mafia

I enjoyed Jake and Dilan’s story as they navigate through their careers and Family.
They tried so hard to resist and yet, couldn’t deny the feelings building up within.

I love Sterling’s writing. She takes characters you wouldn’t think work together and makes them work with a healthy dose of steam.
This book is funny and sweet with dashes of tension as Dilan tries exit his gang peaceably.

Recommend this book.

Not gonna lie, the storyline with the Irish Mafia was kind of confusing to me. That may be because I read the third book first and then Snatched. The description of the first book didn't catch my eye, but I think I'll give it a try. This book was AMAZING though and I loved it more than Flipped. I thought I had already read pretty much every good m/m book, but this took me by surprise. I totally recommend it, Dilan and Roan were perfect together. Heat, with just the right amount of fluff. ...more

Oh what fun! Roan was my favorite character here. What a clever, clever man.
A tight, taunt thriller, a whirlwind love story, and a mob story worthy of GoodFellas and The Godfather franchise all rolled into one amazingly entertaining and exciting read.
I did feel bad for Connor in the end.
But so happy for Jake and Dilan.
Roan's story is next, can't wait!

I love the way Ms Sterling writes and how she can make you love the men who start out as bad guys. She can really come up with creative and heartwarming stories.

I have to say that I loved this book and it was definitely better than the first one, not that it was bad. The story was better, the chemistry between Dilan & Jake was epic, the sex was off the charts hot and I wanted even more. Great characters and I can’t wait to start the next one.

First mob book I have enjoyed

Mob stuff and violence is not my thing. But Dilan, Roan too, were so tender hearted, under the mob facade. Jake surprised me too! And what a well earned hea. Good stuff
