Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.
As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.
Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

As I have stated several times before, I’m not big on trying new authors. For some reason I don’t like going out of my comfort zone, so to me, Bad for Her was a gamble. One I am very happy I made. I haven’t really been a fan of mafia books, but I liked the idea of three brothers turning their lives around from mafia goons to the ordinary blue collar worker.
This is the story of Rafe, the eldest of the Maguire brothers, who is trying to turn his life around after getting away from the Irish mob in Chicago, and is planted by the U.S Marshal in a picturesque little town. There he meets the towns adopted daughter and doctor, the beautiful Mollie Vickers.
I really liked this book. It was fast pace, funny and had a captivating story line. I felt the instant connection between Rafe and Mollie, and I found myself rooting for them from the beginning. At the same time, I was very intrigued by the whole setup for the two remaining stories in this series. I loved that we saw the relationship between the brothers grow stronger, and how they found out that they needed each other more than they first had realized. However, I was a little disappointed by the abrupt ending, and it left me feeling a little cheated which is why this book only gets 4 stars. But I am definitely anticipating book two and three about these Bad boys Gone Good.
