Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.

As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.

Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

There’s something enticing about the bad boy gone good trope. In Bad For Her by Christi Barth, Rafe Maguire is a ex-mobster trying to turn over a new leaf under witness protection. He’s family oriented, extra hot, and finding work as a mechanic.

Then we have Doctor Mollie Vickers who loves her small town, tight knit community. And never dates seriously, for reasons to be discovered. Luckily for her, Rafe comes along to help her with her fix her flat tire and her stagnant sex life. Win-win.

Though they both agree to a FWB situation for different reasons, it’s so easy to see that Rafe and Mollie have a genuine connection and the potential to be the cutest couple ever. Throw in both their misc family members and this story is a smorgasbord of fun, sexiness, drama, and laughter to keep the reader hooked to the end. Bad for Her is a sizzling hot, easy romance that is the start of what could be a very fun series.
