4/5 Review: Dare to Stay by Jen McLaughlin



I will start by stating that this is the second in the Jen McLaughlin's The Sons of Steel Row series. I did not read book one but you pick up very quickly on how book one ended - it wasn't pretty! That being said I do recommend you read book 1 although Dare to Stay reads well alone. 

In this installment we get to learn more about Chris O'Brien. Book one ended with Chris bleeding in an alley on the seedy side of South Boston. Having done something beyond reproach. Molly Lachlan finds Chris and saves him from dying. 

Molly, just happens to be the girl next door (literally), that Chris has worshipped from afar most of his life. Molly, may be the girl next door, a teacher, and has dealt with the loss of her family from gang violence. So, Chris is about as far from what she is looking for as it can get. But, sometimes fate has something else in mind!

Can Molly, look past Chris' way of life and love him for who and what he is? Can Chris forgive himself for the awful things he has done and give Molly what she wants and what he thinks she deserves? Settle down open the book and discover The Sons of Steel Row!

Ms. McLaughlin's writing is descriptive and her plot lines are tight and keep the story moving forward. The story is told in alternating 1st person, so you get to see what is going on in both Scott and Molly's heads. So, if you are in the market for a great bad boy romance, I highly recommend this one.
