Blog Tour: The Fighting Connolly's book one~ In Kelly's Corner by Roxie Rivera, Stacy's Review & Giveaway
Bee Langston is an internet tech genius who has a very promising future, and is already well on her way to making millions. There’s only one problem. Bee has a stalker and not just any old stalker, we’re talking dirty pictures, text-messaging crazy kind of stalker. Bee runs to the one man who she feels safe with, the one man who she knows can protect her. Kelly Connolly isn’t just any man to Bee, he’s also best friend to Kelly’s now deceased brother Jeb. Kelly is a Marine and fought alongside Jeb, before meeting his own demise in the form of war. Jeb had always entrusted his sister with Kelly, the one man he-himself trusted. So when Bee comes home to a package in her living room, she knows that her stalker has reached a new level of creepy. So Bee doesn’t go to the police, she goes straight to Kelly.
Kelly is now working for a private security firm. His job is to protect people. So when Bee comes to him in a flood of shaky emotion, Kelly has no other option but to protect her. These two have something together that goes beyond chemistry, and the ties that bind them, ties being Jeb of course. Bee and Kelly shared an awkward New Years Eve kiss one year, and neither of them have been the same. Kelly for fear of betraying his best friend, and Bee because Kelly rejected her flat out and never understanding his reaction just hurt her.
As Kelly tries to protect Bee, a number of different obstacles come in to play. Kelly and his two brother’s Jack and Finn are a pretty big part of the story as well. They have a father named Nick who puts them into various bad situations based on his severe gambling addiction. And this huge gambling debt can only be paid one way, Kelly agrees to fight for the Albanian mob in order to fix the situation.
As Kelly goes through his training, Bee still has her stalker and Kelly is trying his best to protect both protect Bee and keep his father safe. And throughout all of this, Kelly and Bee finally submit to their feelings for each other, and it’s actually really sweet the way they finally overcome the walls they once had up. But the party can’t last forever. Trust is broken, lies are told and this all makes for some good angst. There’s a little twist towards the end with Bee’s stalker that I didn’t see coming as well.
Ultimately I enjoyed the story, I just think that there was a lot of different things going on at the same time, which I believe took a little away from the romance of the story. I found myself going back and forth between sub-plots and finding myself confused at times. Ultimately I really enjoyed the characters, and the writing was done very well. I love a good story with a protecting-alpha any day!
