Kelly: Dark Irish Mafia Romance is book two in the series and is filled with the same fast paced excitement, danger and intrigue as the first book!

What good can there be when it comes to the Irish Mob you ask? Well, when you find out more about the O’Sullivans you will find out. They are definitely dangerous, have a variety of enemies but they love hard, protect their own and care deeply about their family. This book, this family and these characters are going to keep you completely engaged fro

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

I'm a busy friggin' man and priority number one is destroying the south-of-the-border bastardos who've been dealing blow on our turf. Then I find out someone whose supposed to be in our pocket is on the take with this rival cartel, and things go from bad to fubar. That backstabbing Jagoo owes me big. Unfortunately, the only thing he's got to offer is the one thing I don't want. His daughter. Now

Kelly: Dark Irish Mafia Romance
(O’Sullivan Brothers #2)
Written by: Rie Warren

Having read the O’Sullivan Brother’s Book 1, Lucky’s story, I made a note to grab the next book in this series. So here I am, to tell you a bit about book 2, Kelly’s story.

These O’Sullivan Brothers, they are tough Irish Mafia men with a heart of gold twist.

Kelly O’Sullivan, he takes care of the messy side of the business. He loves it because it gives him an outlet for the rage he still holds against his father. His moth

I loved Kelly & Marlowe from start to finish! The first meeting between these two was Kelly saving Marlowe from an apparent mugging. The second meeting, Marlowe's cop father is looking for Kelly to protect his daughter from the cartel. And Kelly jumped at that opportunity to protect this "good girl". The book is full of chemistry between thees two, steam and so much more. Action, twists, turns, betrayal make this a page-turner from start to finish. And you can read Kelly and his brother Lucky's ...more

To say I loved this second in the series, would be an understatement! I freakin' loved it!

Marlowe and Kelly, phew and double phew! This man can dominate me any time! LOL

Ms. Warren's world building kept me glued to the pages, and sure to get me to read the next in the series.

Her bigger than life characters, and her delicious dialogue kept me engaged, and smiling to myself!

I'm definitely ready for more O'Sullivan Brothers! Bring it on!!!

OMG!! The middle O’Sullivan is dark, dirty and has a BDMS streak a mile wide. Marlowe didn’t know what she was getting into with being given to Kelly for “protection” against the cartel. Marlowe gives just as good as she gets in regards to Kelly. As they spend more time together they start to fall for each other and their chemistry is explosive. I loved how this book was exciting, fast paced, drama filled and had loads of suspense. I can’t wait for Dex’s story!!

This book will give you all the feels. Dark and captivating. 2 totally opposite people. One determined woman who refuses to bend to one strong & determined man who wants her. When your roads keep leading you back to that one man & then you start seeing a different side to him, can you resist?
This is a wonderful series that I’m enjoying!

Sometimes your perfect man is wrapped up in the hardened, over protective and controlling Irish mafia bad boy. In Marlowe’s case that’s just what Kelly O’Sullivan becomes. Unfortunately, the two meet in the worst of situations-wielding weapons, facing death and the cartel.
The nonnegotiable agreement to keep Marlowe safe puts Kelly in a position of overwhelming power. The most surprising part of the arrangement is how fast the tables turn when Marlowe and Kelly surrender to their true selves.

OMG I am still suffering from an adrenaline rush from this book. This author does what she does best. She gives us a dark, gritty world filled with violence. Of course best of all, it has hot and heavy interactions between our two main characters.

Kelly is our dirty talking, Irish mafia dude. He is SCARY… but our girl Marlowe can’t help herself especially after she finds out about all the trouble her police officer dad has gotten into. Eek. I am not saying more about that cause you have to read

Rie Warren has written a 5-star book. This is the story of Marlowe and Kelly. Marlowe has just left the home of two of her students that need a little extra tutoring. She hears footsteps behind her and she tries to keep from running. She is grabbed from behind when she passed a broken streetlight and pulled into an alley. She is saved by another man but things are not good when her attacked puts up a fight. The man saving Marlowe ends up killing her attacker. Marlowe gets let go with just a kiss ...more
We thought we loved Lucky's story, which was super hot but, Kelly's story was scorching hot. We would love to ask the author how many cold showers she needed to took to cool down after writing this one? LOL

This story started off with a bang and continued with non-stop suspense and scorching hot and sexy scenes, erotica at its best. Wonderful characters through and through.

“Kelly: Dark Irish Mafia Romance” is book two in the ‘O’Sullivan Brothers’ series by Rie Warren. It can definitely be read and enjoyed as a standalone. I never read the first book in this series, but I was able to easily jump right into this one. Before I go into detail about this particular story, I can tell you that after finishing it, I purchased the first book, and am going to be looking forward to the next one.

This story completely got to me. I don't know how to express one moment from the next. It started as this:

They are an Irish Mafia that reside in Boston, this is also were Marlowe lives and her father works as a detective.

These Sullivan Brothers sure know how to get a reader's motor running, in more ways than one. As we know from book 1, Lucky, Kelly O’Sullivan is kinda scary. Which comes in handy as an Underboss in the Mafia. Kelly is the one to “Handle” things when business goes sideways. A job he relishes as it’s a way he can let go of all the inner rage he carries. Rage for his mother’s death which he blames his father for. He has no time to tame a wild woman (Marlowe) he’s holding for collateral.

Kelly is the second installment in the O'Sullivan Brothers, an Irish Mafia Romance featuring Kelly O'Sullivan and Marlowe Fearon.
Rie Warren is not a new to me author, so this book keeps in her ingenious style: unusual connections, gore and mayhem, family banter, glimpses into the future and immensively fun to read.
I really liked both characters: Marlowe gave as good as she got and Kelly maintaining a cool and, sometimes, bored demeanor when, in reality, h

OH MY CHAOTIC HELL! I LOVE Rie Warren's writing, and her Irish mafia is super sexy with a big kicker of suspense so it's totally my jam. Now, I will say that Kelly pulled some things that would have ended with me taking him out but that's just me. Marlowe is the child of police, only her father is on the take with the O'Sullivan Brothers, but somehow also got caught up in the cartel. It's left her in danger so her father gets Kelly to protect her so the war is on between these two because she's ...more

She turns out to be the daughter of a corrupt police officer who asks Kelly if his daughter can move in with him for protection. When Kelly learns who the daughter is, he gladly agress. Then an intriguing game of seduction begins between the two. There is good chemistry between them. At some p ...more

Kelly, the 2nd book in Rie Warren's Dark Irish Mafia Romance series is everything I come to expect from Warren's books. Kelly O'Sullivan, like his older brother Lucky, is not a nice man. He "takes care things" for the family. He is not a stone and jumps in when he sees a woman getting assaulted. This woman is Marlowe Fearon is the daughter of a Boston detective.
