A Mighty Good Man by Rebecca E. Neely

cover75228-medium‘Hank’ Jerry…Her personal and professional life on the skids, a family emergency forces her to return to the small town, and the aunt, she left behind.

Jack ‘Gent’ Darcy…Fresh out of prison, he’s bent on cutting ties with the Creds, but when you’re a war counselor in a national gang, they don’t let you just walk away.

Injured and on the run, Jack lands on Hank’s doorstep, and makes her a proposition she can’t refuse: write his story about life inside one of the most powerful gangs in the country. It’s simple – she’ll get her career groove back, and he’ll bury the gang, then disappear – his version of freedom.

Only problem is, they can’t help falling for each other, and they’ve both got something to hide that could blow up in their faces. With time running out and gang enforcers closing in, will the trust they’ve forged survive the ultimate test?

A MIGHTY GOOD MAN is a fast, punchy read that puts a new spin on family, second chances, and the power of love.

It took me a while to figure out what kind of story to expect as even though it was clearly laid out that Hank is a woman, it took me a few reads to really make heads or tails of the character from what the blurb described. I’m usually a big fan of women with mens name, but I maybe would have held off on putting that as literally the first thing in the blurb.

Now! I have that little pet-peeve out of the way, so it’s time to talk about how much I adored A Mighty Good Man and how happily I would recommend this story to romance lovers everywhere. The concept of this story was so cool, the way their two careers/paths collided, but then their attraction to one another made what could have been a simple arrangement way more complicated. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a romance quite like this one, but I know one thing… I want more. I loved both Hank and Jack, and their chemistry together was organic and a lot of fun to read. These are two people who are clearly meant to be together, but obviously it’s not going to be that simple.

The writing was strong, and the pacing worked out really nicely, to the point where it was so hard to put this book down because it always felt like something big was coming right around the corner.
