SHE WANTED NOTHING MORE THAN TO HELP CHILDREN…
…until fate pushes her into a back alley, where she witnesses a murder.
Bobby “the Bear” O’Donnell strikes fear into even the toughest thugs in town. His rock hard body, glittering brown eyes and the rock star number of notches on his bed post makes him a walking legend. The Bear’s motto is this—never get so close you can’t leave in thirty seconds flat. And his own personal manifesto includes relationships with women, too.
One day, the Bear’s boss, Gary “Fats” Malone sends his men on a mission to show a rival gang a little of Fats’ power. Fats wants to teach outsiders to mind their own territory…or else. The two men, flanked by their boss himself, lay several bullets into their rivals’ chests. But there’s just one problem: an innocent school teacher witnesses the whole thing.
No one can miss Jenny Carollton once they’ve seen her. Her luminous blue eyes and light blond hair burn into the minds of all men who are lucky enough to catch the sight of her face. Fats’ men chase her back to her apartment and tie her up, lest she run to the cops. Fats tells The Bear what to do with Jenny, and he definitely is not insinuating a date.
So The Bear has one job, to kill Jenny Carollton, the sweet schoolteacher who spends her free night helps disadvantaged kids study geometry. As The Bear looks around her one-bedroom apartment, at the children’s crayon drawings on the wall, at the bar furniture, and at the humble kitchen, he almost feels sorry for her. No way could Bear kill something this beautiful and fragile and innocent.
But his boss, Fats’ Malone, has a different perspective on the matter.
