This Life of Ours, Fairy Tales of Mob Bartenders
This is the first book in a female centric series that tells the other side of the traditional mob story about what it's like when the boys like you and you become the object of their attention.
NYC in the 80’s and 90’s was the age of the mob scene. But one thing was obvious if you looked beyond the aggressive wise guys, corruption, and the occasional murder, life was amazing. The men were tough in the streets but kneeled before the girl they loved. Dannie, an admired bartender works in several of the city’s hottest nightclubs and bars and met Babe the day he's released from prison. While he pursued her relentlessly, his work stood between them. Dannie was the only one he allowed himself to be vulnerable around and swore to protect her as they were hunted down. As the violence escalated, with Dannie nearly getting run over, she tragically caught Babe in bed with another woman. Well connected with the mafia, Dannie continued working as their bartender, letting loose with her girlfriends as Babe attempted to convince her to put his infidelities in the past and get engaged. Although Babe cheated on Dannie once before, it’s nearly impossible to let someone who had given you the most pleasure in your life go without feeling an immense void left in its wake.
