He takes, conquers, then saunters away in all aspects of his life - work and play. Years embedded deep in the mob and a sour taste for relationships, he has zero desire to find a permanent partner to make a home with. His carefree lifestyle leaves him with a long list of inconsequential, bed-rocking, no-strings-attached women. A daily life he relishes until he meets...her. The one woman who could alter his world.

If it wasn't for bad luck, Mackenzie Hiland would have no luck at all. A cheating husband, shafted by the courts, no money or home, her life is a dismal list of horrible choices and even worse consequences. After acknowledging she needs to change her decision making skills, Mackenzie can't help but to be lured in by the dangerous man, who's taken an interest in her and is blatant in his desire to get her into his bed. Despite the fact she tries to distance herself from Derk, he refuses her rejections. Will Derk become another addition to the long list of regretful decisions she's made?

    I liked this story but it didn't wow me. This is a standalone but part of a series featuring different characters from the same world. I liked that the h was in her early 30s but she was really whiny about her situation. I was turned off by her job; I think she was smart enough to get a job anywhere. Her job at the bar was so demeaning. Physical beauty is heavily emphasized in this book. At one point, the h comes to the H's boss's house and is in awe of how handsome or beautiful people in the household are. The H was wishy-washy about his feelings for the h. At first he wants her badly and I loved that but he quickly moves back to his usual whores when the h turns him down. This back and forth happens several times. I have not read the previous books in the series but I did not like the pedestal that Courtney was out on. The men worshipped her and the way her own guards thought of her was creepy. I probably will not be reading the previous books or the next one.

    Dangerous Love is Book 3 in the Love Series. Everyone from the first 2 books is back in Book 3 but the story focuses on Derk Forester, Derrick Murphy's henchman.Mackenzie grew up in foster care and never knew what love was. She married the first man to show an interest in her. Trouble was, he didn't really love her. In the divorce he got everything leaving Mackenzie with nothing. She is determined to get her life in order and to find love.When Derk sees Mackenzie, he wants her in his bed. No commitment, just sex until he has had enough and moves on. Problem is, Mackenzie won't settle for that. Derk comes on too crude, too bossy, and too arrogant-- typical Derk behavior. He realizes he needs to back off and start over with a different approach. Derk spends time with Mac and she gets under his skin. He begins to realize he wants Mac in his future. Mac isn't so sure she wants Derk in her life once she finds out what he does for a living. Derk sets out to change her mind.Once again, Casey Clipper has written an excellent book. She brings her characters to life as fully developed individuals-- warts and all. There were times I wanted to wring Derk's neck and slap him silly for being such a Neanderthal. Other times, I was touched by how he cared for Mac. How he wanted to prove to her how wonderful she was. How he wanted to bring her into the Murphy family so she could learn what it was like to have people who really cared for her and had her back. I liked Mac because she wasn't jealous of Derk's relationships with Courtney and Beth. She was secure in herself and in his feelings for her. Personally, I would have never thought I would care for people in the mob. Especially one with Derk's "talents". In Casey's hands, these characters are likeable. That speaks volumes about her talent.I've read all 3 books in this series. I loved all of them. I am impatiently awaiting Book 4! I highly recommend the entire Love Series to anyone wanting to read a terrific, highly entertaining story. Derrick Murphy insists on it!

    There is something mouthwatering about a man who demands everything and doesn’t take no for an answer. Derk Forester is sexy, dangerous and did I mention sexy? This was my kind of book; sex, foul language, violence, some more sex and a steamy love story. Poor Mackenzie Hiland won me over with her bad luck and terrible decisions. I couldn’t help but connect with her emotionally. The characters were captured in perfect light and the way they come together is really breath taking. Every woman fantasizes about a bad boy who makes them question their sanity and tests their sexual boundaries and Derk is no different for Mackenzie. The sex made my eyebrows shoot up and my toes curl! I was left with new expectations and ideas of my own after reading about the steamy knock your socks off sex. I was in need of a fan, a cigarette and a drink! Nothing is off limits in this book, it was constantly pushing the limits and had me begging for more! Lets just say I was mildly obsessed with this book and my kindle was hardly put down as I drank in this amazing sex pot of a book! This is seriously a must read for someone who isn’t shy and can handle it!Amber Lea~Entangled By Words Book Blog...because one is never enoughReview Rating: 5 Stars

    I liked how dangerous and "bad boy" the hero was. He freelances for the mafia doing a bit of everything. The heroine is a former foster kid who is now a bartender. I was disappointed by how quickly the heroine gave in. She said no to the hero and then immediately changed her mind. I liked how the hero couldn't stay away from her and kept following her around. This book reads well as a stand alone. You don't need to have read the previous books in the series. Frankly I thought books 1 and 2 were pretty boring.

    Casey Clipper has done an amazing job with bad boy DERK. Mackenzie is the only girl for him. This series just gets better and better with each book. Such an easy story to follow and get drawn into. I love that we get to read more and keep up to date with previous characters. Casey you are freaking fantastic. Thank you. Loved this.

    OMFG. I just don't know what to say about this book. First off let me start off by saying that this book could be read as a stand alone however I strongly suggest that you read the first two in the series. They are equally fantastic, but I seem to like arrogant alpha's so I think this is my absolute favorite of this series.Derk Forester is everything a girls father wants her to stay away from. He smokes like a chimney, uses excessive foul language and takes what he wants. Working for a infamous mob boss, Derk isn't one to want a relationship. He is the love them and leave them type of guy but that soon changes one night when he is confronted at a bar by a sexy bartender. With her innocent face and fine body, Derk know that he is going to her her. Soon!The last thing Mackenzie Hiland wanted to do was sling beers behind a bar, but with nothing left to her name, no thanks to her ex husband, she has no choice. However one run in with Bad Boy Derk has her running for the hills. He is overbearing, bossy, arrogant but there is something about him that she just can't seem to shake. With a horrible track record, Mac tries everything in her power to stay away from him, but he just seems to keep popping up.Derk can't seem to understand the word "No" or at least he won't understand Mac's version. He soon becomes transfixed with her and starts to get feelings he has never had before. But he keeps telling himself he is not one for anything serious. Both Mac and Derk soon give into their sexual tension and start to embark on something lighthearted but when questions need to be answered and truths need to be told, can these two break through all their past issues and be there for each other? Can Derk accept his feeling and let Mac in? Or can Mac recognize that maybe she is worthy of having someone fight for her?Ms. Clipper delivers a HOT ALPHA MALE in this book. Unlike her other books in this series, Derk's personality grabbed my attention from the start and I quickly devoured this book in one sitting. I am equally excited to read the next book in this series and can't wait til we hear Smith's story.

    Derk, the Mob Boss' henchman, is accustomed to getting what he wants, when he wants it. What he wants is Mackenzie, a woman who wouldn't have any luck at all if she didn't have bad luck. As soon as Derk sees Mackenzie he knows that he wants her in his bed - no strings attached. Derk comes off as too crude and arrogant (hello, alpha male!) to her taste and Mackenzie wants no part of him or what he has to offer. In an attempt to try a new approach, Derk begins spending time getting to know Mackenzie and realizes he wants her - not as a no strings attached girl, but as a part of his future. Once she finds out what he does for a living though, will Derk be able to change her mind when she decides she wants no part of that kind of life.I have to admit, I was unsure if I would like this book as I picked up Dangerous Love. Derk had come off as a rough guy the few times he had been mentioned in the previous books so I didn't know how I would feel about his character and his story.Once I started reading I was so GLAD that I did. Bad boy Derk actually has a lot to offer for his character. Despite being the resident bad boy, in the mob (the boss' henchman, no less) with a skilled set of unique 'talents', I actually really liked Derk's character once I got to know him. I will admit there were times I wanted to smack some sense in to him especially when he was behaving worse than a caveman. I enjoyed the fact that once he realized how much he wanted Mac in his life, he was willing to do whatever it took to make her realize he wasn't the bad guy he comes across as and that he was more than what he did for a living. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in this series by Casey Clipper. Each book is so captivating and I cannot wait for more.

    Dangerous Love is the third book in The Love Series and although it is a standalone, the first two books in the Series also feature Derk and are both fantastic reads as well.“Da na na na, bad to the bone” is the only way to describe Derk Forester. He’s one sexy bad boy who works for the mob. He takes what he wants from women and when he has had enough, he leaves hearts broken in his wake and doesn’t give a flying f***! But he’s so delicious so that can be overlooked!Mackenzie Hiland has just finalised her divorce with her cheating no-good ex-husband and in the process, she has lost absolutely everything. She is broken and is struggling. I really feel for Mac, after being in foster care and falling for the first man that showed some feelings towards her, she is once again left broken and hers is a very sad story.When Derk first lays his on her, he knows he wants her in his bed but she won’t fall for his “love em and leave em attitude”. Derk realises he needs to woo her to get what he wants but he starts to feel things for her and decides he wants her for more than just sex. Mackenzie is not sure if she is ready to go down this road again and will her decision become easier for her when she finds out that Derk has been hiding his mob connections from her?Derk and Mac’s road to happiness is far from easy and Casey has done an amazing job of bringing these characters to life and implementing them in your mind where you will remember their story long after you have finished it.Dangerous Love is my favourite book of the Series and I am looking forward to the final instalment when it releases.I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

    SNS Rating: 5.0~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~Ms. Clipper brings us a stirring tale of finding love, of finding the heart's desire despite the stubbornness of the heart or blindness of the eyes. Derk and Mackenzie are an unlikely couple. One obviously dangerous and very much bad news and one so sweet and innocent. Mac wants someone to love her, needs someone to take care of her and make her feel adored and special. Derk, on the other hand, needs no one, especially a woman to hang onto him and complicate his life. Casey does an excellent job bringing these two characters together, designing their interactions together and presents a fascinating tale as these two souls open up to new possibilities and allow their hearts to blossom. It is interesting, entertaining and one scene introduces danger and suspense into the mix but solidifies their love for each other. ~~~~~~~~~~Patricia's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~In this part of the Love Series we have Derk and MacKenzie. Derk who works for Derrick Murphy as a Freelance hit-man or whatever. Falls for Mac who has had a hard life from the get go. Never feeling like anyone ever loved her to the now ex-husband who was a total creep. Will Derk be able to convince Mac that she is someone that can find love and be loved. When Mac finds out what Derk does for a living will she be able to handle it or will she run thinking she doesn't deserve happiness. When an unexpected accident happens will everything be put into perspective for these two? This was another great book.

    He’s a jerk but you can’t help but like him…This is the third book in the Love Trilogy series and is my new favourite! When did bad boy, mob types became so sexy? Choir boys need not apply so you know Derk Forester is not your typical white-hat wearing hero. Yes he is scary but so much more - an alpha male who is cool under pressure and unashamed to admit he wants nothing to do with “happily ever after”. It’s not like he has a nine to five job, is it? Little did he know Mackenzie Hiland was going to challenge all of the truths he held dear. Determined to turn her life around and make better decisions, Mackenzie knew Derk would be just another bad choice in a lifetime of them. Love knows no boundaries though and the two struggle with each other and external forces as they find their way, together.Mackenzie and Derk are the kind of people you want to have in your life. Well, maybe without the mob. Her misgivings are not trivial and while Derk is a bad guy he is also good. His fierce protectiveness of those he loves makes my heart go pitter patter. This is another great story with interesting characters, an engaging plot with just the right amount of steamy heat. I’m thrilled this trilogy is going to four books – I can’t wait to see what’s next in this world that I don’t want to leave!

    I've read previous books in this series and was looking forward to Derk's story. After a messy breakup, Mackenzie is working in a bar to make ends meet. This is where she meets Derk. Initial first impressions for her are not so great but he does end up redeeming himself a little. As for Derk, he's pretty much immediately attracted to Mackenzie but is not looking for serious. I enjoyed this a lot. The writing was good and the plot flowed well. I liked Mackenzie. She was down on her luck but still had backbone. I enjoyed Derk's character from previous books. He was still cheeky and a bit bad but underneath had a softer side. Personally as he had connections with the mob etc I would have preferred him to be a little 'badder' as, at times he seems a little too nice. I would have preferred a little more angst over all but that's just me. The secondary characters were good and pretty well rounded. It was good to catch up with previous characters from the series. All in all this was a good story. Did it blow me away? No, but it was a good story that was well written and I would definitely read more from this author. I would recommend to readers who enjoy a good romance. Calling All Bookaholics :)

    Mackenzie’s world had hit rock bottom. She lost everything she had in her divorce. She lost the house, the car, the cat and her self-worth. Yes, he took the cat. At least she still had her job as a bartender and the friendship of her coworker, Kayla who offered to give her a place to stay. While Mackenzie was at work, she meets Derk. Derk is tough and sexy with a dark and questionable job. Derk is use to woman that he can use and forget but that changes when he meets Mackenzie. This is the one woman that gets into his head and his heart. Derk will do anything to own and protect her. Mackenzie has never met anyone like Derk and even though she tries to lead with her head and date other people Derk is what her heart wants. There are secrets and twists that could tear this couple apart but their love for each other keeps bringing them back together. I enjoyed this story and the attraction between these two was constantly a game of back and forth. There was hot sex scenes but the change in both people were really what the story was about.

    Derk and Mackenzie find love is dangerousDerk is a freelance worker for whomever he chooses including the Murphy family whom we have all met in previous books. He watched his father kill his mother before he ended his own life and vows never to fall in love and become just like them. However, little does he know that a chance meeting with McKenzie at The House of Cards, a bar that she works at, will change both of their lives . Mac is trying to make ends meet with her bartender job at Cards after her slimey ex-husband gets everything in the divorce. She moves in with her best friend who also works there. Little does she know that when Derk steals a kiss, that they would soon be unable to live without each other. But it's what Derk does for the Murphy family that causes a rift between them and could possibly be what will drive them apart. It takes seeing how Courtney and Derrick Murphy makers it work to realize that the family they both crave has been there all along.

    Dangerous LoveThis was a great story. I read The Boss's Love and completely fell in love with that story. This author writes very intriguing and sexy love stories and this was no exception.Derk was a strong Alpha determined to get what he wanted which was Mackenzie. Mac was a sweet bartender just looking for love and family, two things she never had growing up.Unconventional was their relationship but they made it work because they knew they couldn't live without each other. I do wish they had a more traditional HEA but understand why not.I really respect an author who takes the time to write a thank you letter to the reader. Thank you for an exciting story Ms Clipper.

    I was intrigued with Derk since I first met him in The Boss's Love and with each book I wanted to learn a bit more about this man who was a henchman for The Murphy family. Well his own book didn't disappoint. There is something to be said a story about a bad boy. It is even better when you get to see the heart of the bad boy and realize he is bad...really bad....but he is oh, so, good too!!When Derk meets Mackenzie Hiland he is taken to her right away, she is a smart girl who has just went through the ringer with her good for nothing now ex husband. Their time together has ups and downs but watching it all unfold was like a movie.Casey continues to tell the story perfectly. She allows you to read yet watch the book play out.I can't wait to see what Casey comes up with next!

    Drama, action and more drama!!If you think this book contains hearts and flowers, you're totally mistaken! Derk it's your typical heart ass enforcer/assassin for a mob family. He's dark, hot, and mysterious. McKinsey it's his complete opposite. For some unknown reason they fit together perfectly! That's what makes this story compelling and worth reading!! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
