Book Description

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay creates a world of politics, gangs and her forte--the problems of teenagers. This is the first of five in The O’Neils series!

“SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN is a wonderfully written, emotional and extraordinary read and truly deserves a five-star rating.” Affaire de Coeur

Bailey O’Neil, aka, the Street Angel, has been the arch enemy of Senator Clay Wainwright since he was a district attorney and she a young, idealistic social worker with four Irish older brothers who watch out for her. Clay put her in jail for harboring a teen offender and eleven years later, she’s a thorn in his side as an anti-gang specialist trying to get kids out of gangs. While Clay wants to put them in the hands of law enforcement, Bailey is determined to help these troubled teenagers make good lives for themselves. But when Bailey and Clay are thrown together, the impossible happens—they’re attracted to each other. Both the Street Angel and the Senator must find a way to deal with their differences in order to make a life together.

Praise for SOMONE TO BELIEVE IN:
"Once again, Shay shines in this starkly realistic story of gang members and people involved in prevention and intervention programs. Shay pulls no punches when describing brutal events, and secondary characters, including Clay's environmentalist son, Bailey's overprotective brothers, and Taz, a member of the notorious Good Girls gang, are especially well developed. This powerful story will stay with readers long after they finish the book.” *Starred Review* Shelley Mosley, American Library Association.

“Shay’s writing trademark is taking seemingly impossible relationships and developing them into classic tales of true love, which is what she does here.” Fresh Fiction

“What we get in SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN is Clay and Bailey fighting each other in the media but heating up the sheets (or the stairs, elevators, and the walls) with love making. Talk about a hot book filled with great dialogue and love scenes.” A Reader

Also available: the O’Neil brothers’ stories in CLOSE TO YOU, TAKING THE HEAT, HIGH STAKES and ALWAYS AND FOREVER, contemporary romances with alpha male heroes and the strong women who love them. Don’t miss these Irish romance series of novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, wow, wow! 6 Sept. 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this book as it was a freebie and the write up seemed interesting. Boy what strong characters this author has created. It is a very powerful story from all angles. The conflicting beliefs about dealing with gang warfare, the intense attraction between the hero and heroine, family values....... it is all here. It is a superb, intelligent, well written story and the authors note at the end explains the coming together of the characters and yes, it shows throughout this excellent book.

I don't often award five stars for the romantic type of book, but feel that this one truly does deserve them. A well rounded tale with warmth and understanding for human emotions and frailties. Would certainly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Grit 9 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OMG this is really good. Bailey is one tough cookie from a strong Irish background. 4 older brothers who would die for their sister struggle with their desire to be the protective alpha males whilst allowing ( God Bailey would kill me for that maybe I should say support, facilitate) anything less would assault her intellect and insult her integrity. Bailey does time in prison justly or unjustly you decide then falls in love with the man who put her there. it shouldn't work but it does. Fabulously told by this author, not just a romance it has grit and bite. Loved it immensely could not put it down
