REVIEW - Brawler's Baby by Holly Hart

I broke his heart. Then he came to rescue me. But he doesn't know I've got a secret, and the secret's a part of him.


I'm going to make her scream my name, and tease her until she begs me to fill her up, inch by filthy inch. Mikhail Antonov stole his daughter from me once, but fate's given me a second chance and this time he doesn't get a say.

Her dad's a f**king bully. The rest of this crooked town might be terrified of him, but not me. Not now I've found Maya. Mikhail doesn't know it yet, but if he lays a hand on my woman, he's dead. I'm going to make her mine again, and he's not going to stop me – even if he does run the Russian mob.

If he stands in my way, I'll burn his town to the ground.


Conor Regan saved me twice before he even said hello. He made me happy for the first time I could remember. But then my mobster dad took it all away. When I saw Conor fighting in that cage four years later, it was everything I’d always wanted…and everything I’d ever feared.

Now we're balanced on a knife edge, with danger lurking on either side. Conor's like a drug to me, but every time I let him inside me, I'm risking everything I hold dear. I want him more than life itself, but I've got a secret that might ruin everything…

He's a dad.

Brawler's Baby is a standalone secret baby romance, the first in the Mob City series. Holly doesn't do cliffhangers, and she guarantees an HEA every time. Hitman's Baby, the next Mob City book, will be out late-June.

Okay.....2 1/2

Conor is cocky but likable. Maya is weak and you have to work at liking her. I didn't like the flow of the story and I didn't connect with the characters. 

I thought the storyline was promising but unfortunately I couldn't get on board. It had a slow start and a quick finish, leaving me thinking, Is that it??? But, it did have a HEA, which is always good.

This one just was not for me.
