Vinny Di Molto is muscle. He knows people talk when faced with the threat of a fist. He knows because it’s his job to know.

The thrill of a challenge is something Gloria and Vinny crave. When Gloria stumbles upon a back alley meeting, eavesdropping might be her undoing. Vinny’s never been one to get blackmailed but there’s a first time for everything. Things should go smoothly, as long as feelings and desire don’t get in the way.
