Maclean Mafia Men, 2

Faith does everything she can to get her family away from the monster who happens to be her father. Trapped at home, she finally runs and hides, waiting and watching for the perfect time to get her sisters and her mother to safety.

Graham takes one look at the grubby and tired young woman and decides she is his. When he finds out who she was and realizes the extent of her problem, it makes him more determined to protect her.

The problem only seems to worsen, and he is forced to pull his family into something that can destroy them. This drama doesn’t impact just their families. Instead, a third family run by a sadist enters the fray. He wants the girl and doesn’t care who gets hurt on the way.

Can Graham convince Faith to trust him—with her heart and her life?

Be Warned: anal sex



Graham looked up from his desk as two of his guys strode in, dragging a small person between them.

He set his pen down and sat back.

“Yo, boss, we found this kid in the warehouse on Seventy-Fourth.”

“He was in the warehouse?”

“Yeah. The little bastard has been there for a while, too. He took one of the back storage rooms and turned it into his own little apartment.”

Graham studied the person who looked more like a kid in a dirty oversized gray sweatshirt and ratty jeans. “Okay, I’ll take care of it. I might have you come back for the body, though, so stick around.”

He grinned at the gasp from the kid and watched the men leave, waiting for the door to close.

“What’s your name?”

The little shit crossed his arms over his chest.

“If you don’t give me answers, I’ll get them another way.”

He sighed when the kid stood mute. “Take off the hood.”

The kid didn’t move.

“If you don’t do it yourself, I’ll come to help you. I guarantee it won’t be pleasant, and I’ll leave bruises on you.”

The hood came down, and it took a moment for Graham to realize the kid was a woman. There was no mistaking the adult female structure of her face, and although dirty, her skin was blemish-free and pale except for the bruises under her eyes, telling him she hadn’t gotten enough sleep lately. Her black hair seemed to be in a bun, so he couldn’t tell how long it was. From where he sat, her eyes looked green and were striking.

“What in the fuck is a young woman doing in one of my warehouses?”

“I didn’t know it was yours.”

“Ah, so you can talk?” He almost smiled when she scowled. “Do you know who I am?”

She nodded. “The brutes who brought me here talked about Graham Maclean.”

“Have you heard about us?” Graham asked.

She shrugged. “Sure. I’ve lived in the city my whole life.”

“How old are you?”


He studied her for a while.

“Can I go now? I promise not to go into the warehouse again.”

He snorted. “You really think I’m going to let you stroll out of here before I get all my answers?”

“I was hoping.”

“What’s your name?”

She pressed her lips together.

“Listen, babe. I’ll tie your ass down and wait for as long as it takes to get my answers. It’s up to you how long it will take.”

She took a deep breath. “Faith.”

“Faith what?” he snapped.


He leaned forward and tipped his head because he didn’t think he’d heard her right. “Say it again.”

She cleared her throat. “Moretti.”

He sat back and stared. Fuck. This could get his whole family killed if they made enemies with the Moretti family. “What were you doing in the warehouse?


“From what?”

“My father.”

“Why?” He could tell she was exhausted and frightened. Her whole body shook, and she tried valiantly to hide her fear with a stiff back and a raised chin.

“He was going to marry me off to Gabriel Rizzo.”

Graham’s stomach tightened, and he knew he looked shocked. Everyone had heard about that bastard because he was a sick fuck. He was a sadist to the extreme. “I’m going to assume your father, like everyone else, knows what the man is like?”

Her chin trembled as she nodded.

“Why would he do that?”

“To bring the families together.”

Jesus Christ. This just kept getting worse. Having the Moretti family against them was terrible, but it would be disastrous having both them and Rizzos.

“Can I go now?”

“What would you do?”

“I would hide to the best of my ability.”

“And what will happen when they find you?”

 She looked down. “If I’m caught, I’ll kill myself.”

He gasped. What the fuck? “You would just give up?”

She tried to laugh. “If I’m caught, my father will take me to the Rizzos that same day to prevent me from running again. Gabriel already warned me if I disobey him, he’ll start torturing me right away to kill my defiance and to punish me. As an extra treat, he’ll rape me and then let a few of his guys at me. So, yeah, I’d rather be dead.”

“I’ve heard about some of the shit he does.”

“Then why the hell doesn’t someone do something?” she yelled, surprising them both. “You know what he does to women, and then he kills them so they can’t talk. He’s a serial killer. Everyone knows that, but they’re too chicken to do anything about.”

He couldn’t dispute her because it was true, and Graham wondered why no one had.

“Listen, if you give me a gun, I’ll shoot him myself.”

“And then what would you do?” he asked sarcastically.

“Shoot myself.” She said it so matter of fact that he believed every word.

“Listen, I’m not going to let anything happen to you.”

“You can’t promise me that.”

His hand slapped down on the top of his desk. “I don’t fucking care what you believe. At the moment, we have to keep you hidden until my brothers and I decide what our next step is.”

“Where are you going to hide me?”

“In my room.”

Graham and Faith Instalove
Written by Laurie on 1st Jun 2022

I enjoyed this instalove novella about Graham and Faith. It is a little dark, but the mafia themes don’t weigh it down. This is the first book I’ve read in this series, but I could follow the plot and characters easily. Looking forward to more Maclean men love stories!. I received a free copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Saving her family
Written by Samantha Davidson on 1st Jun 2022

I received an ARC from the author and am voluntarily leaving my review. This is a good addition to the Maclean Mafia Men series. Faith is brought to Graham after she is discovered squatting in one of their warehouses. She is trying to figure out how to get her family away from her father. Her position isn't a good one but Graham might be her savior. That is one position that he never imagined being in. This is a fast paced mafia romance that pulls you in. While they are trying to figure out how to circumvent her father's plans, Graham and Faith realize there is more than just sparks between them. A future lies before them as long as they can handle her family problems. It is a short story but it doesn't read that way. Interesting characters with an intense story

perfect continuation of the series
Written by Meme on 27th May 2022

This book is part of a series; however, you do not have to read the first book to enjoy this one in my opinion. It would help so you have a more overall picture but not necessary. The beginning Faith is brought in to see Graham because she is "squatting" in their warehouse and has been for almost two weeks. The men who brought Faith in believed she was a young boy, but Graham finds out who she really is and what is going on in her situation, her father was trying to marry her off to a perverted psychopath. Graham decides he has to help her and is going to hide her, he speaks with his older brother and father, and they agree she should be hidden. They decide the best way to protect her from her father is for Faith to marry someone in their family, Graham believes he is the only option, he wants her. There is a little twist thrown in when Faith tells them she has sisters and a mother that need rescuing from her father too. Faith believes her father will try to marry her sisters off too. The two of them find their way to being happy together and do end up sleeping together, and not just sleeping. This book has plenty of action and a little intrigue too. I enjoyed that there is not just one "romance" in this book, there's another one, or two, that begins. I can hardly wait to see what happens in the next book with one of the other brothers.
