There are few people in this world I thought I could count on.
My brother. My two best friends. And him.
Problem is, Jordy thought protecting me was his sole mission in life.
He gave up everything for me and my brother, including his freedom.
Losing him left me hollow and empty.
But after three long years, I’ve learned to live without him.
Until I get mixed up with a guy who has dangerous connections in Hood River and everything begins to crash down around me just in time for my senior year of high school.
Possessive boyfriend with a penchant for violence.
Best friend turned enemy.
Fights with my big brother.
Everything’s a mess and I’m not sure there’s any fixing it.
I might just need that bully ex-convict who’ll do anything—again—to keep me safe.
All I want is peace, happiness, and love.
And I won’t go down without a fight in order to get it.
I’m a Hoodlum after all.
They call me Little Hoodlum, but I’m not so little anymore...
This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It's book two in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Little Hoodlum shouldn't be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.
These Hoodlums made me happy!
This was a brother’s best friend, slight age-gap romance that I thoroughly loved and enjoyed! Jordy was best friends with Roux’s older brother Roan. They have always had a connection, but once he gets out of jail (for protecting Roan and Roux because of events that happened in book 1, Hood River Rat) their connection turned into chemistry. Their push/pull was intense, and I was here for it! I loved that Jordy has always been and will always be loyal and protective of Roux. Even though her world was crumbling, Roux was a brave, loyal, trustworthy, strong woman that I rooted for. Once the action heated up, the odds were not in Jordy and Roux’s favor, but I rooted for them so hard. By the end of this book, these hoodlums left me happy with a smile on my face! I definitely recommend this book that I read in one sitting, and I can’t wait to read the next couple in book three!
