Book Spotlight: Southie by Courtney Dean.

Southie by Courtney Dean.

Liam “Southie” Daugherty grew up in the Irish working-class neighborhood of South Boston, Massachusetts, also known as Southie. The son of a policeman with a drinking and gambling problem and a pill addicted schoolteacher mother who was nothing more than a punching bag for his Pops, Liam never had the best outlook on life or love. But he was always good at one thing. Fighting. His love for fighting brings him face to face with the underworld of South Boston, and his natural skills in the ring catch the eye of the notorious Southie mob boss, Paddy O’Connor. Paddy offers Liam the deal of a lifetime for a young man living in Southie; in return for becoming the notorious mobster’s Enforcer, Paddy would spare his father’s life and cancel the gambling debt his father owes to the mob. With no other choice, Liam agrees to the deal to save his father’s life. Liam’s job as Enforcer brings him to a crossroads when he meets his childhood idol, boxing legend Roland Jennings…and Roland Jennings’ daughter, Camilla, an up-and-coming Boston photographer. Roland tells Liam to stay far away from his daughter. Their relationship wouldn’t be welcomed in the insular, working-class Irish neighborhood and them being together could put Camilla on Paddy’s radar. She’s the one woman he needs to resist. Should resist. She’s also the one woman he can’t.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect a woman like Camilla or any other woman to be in my home moving throughout it as if they belonged there. I’d kept my life involving women limited to quick fucks and on rare occasions, I’d hook up with the same woman for a few months before I moved to the next.

The longer I watched her, the more I wanted this a part of my life with her, a loving woman at home, and us doing ‘couple’ things. It was unbelievable how quickly my thoughts had shifted to having a future with this beautiful stranger.

To make this work, she needed to hear about my job, and I needed to listen to her secrets. Did she want the same? There was an undeniable pull we had to one another. There was no way she hadn’t felt it the first night we met. The question remained—would she run from it?
