About Hold Me Close:
Taming a spirited, fun-loving O’Leary may be harder than he realized…
After more than a year in Ireland, Maggie O’Leary is finally coming back to Chicago with a plan for her future. Confronting the tragedy that destroyed her is her first step. But to do that, she needs to work in her family’s bar–something her family doesn’t want. Luckily, her best friend, Shane Callahan, is her biggest support–and lovable in a way she doesn’t remember.
Determined to protect Maggie, Shane refuses to leave the bar when she’s working late. And when Maggie boldly tells him that she wants him to help her conquer her final fear—sex—Shane knows a single night together won’t be possible. The idea of a spirited Maggie in his bed is everything, but will she believe he wants her heart too?

Shane ran tape over the box as he packed the last of his things before moving in over O’Leary’s. He hated moving. His phone buzzed with a text.
Help! Need an escape. Family driving me crazy.
Nothing like a little Maggie melodrama to break his boredom. On my way.
He didn’t know what they were doing to make her crazy, but he didn’t care much either. He knew a lot of what she disliked was stuff she brought on herself. It was a little of the crazy she dished out coming back at her.
By the time he parked down the block from her mom’s house, the sun was long gone and the streetlights had clicked on. Most families were huddled in their homes having dinner. He walked toward the house, studying the neighborhood. He’d been here plenty over the years and it was comfortable, a home away from home. These neighbors were a little nosier than his, though.
Suddenly, something pelted his shoulder. Barely more than a sting, but enough to get his attention. He looked around for whatever kid had thrown the snowball, but saw no one. Then he heard the snicker and knew it had been Maggie. He bent over, scooped some snow, and formed it into a tight ball. Walking a few more steps, he listened for her.
She popped around from behind a tree, sailing a snowball past his head.
“Nice try.” Then he threw his, nailing her thigh.
Unfortunately, she had a small arsenal by the tree trunk. She must’ve been waiting outside for him for a while. She turned and then fired again, swinging wildly with double-fisted ammunition. He began throwing half-formed balls to slow her assault as he rushed her position.
When she saw him coming, she squealed and ran, abandoning her post and her cache. He took her spot and began using her own snowballs against her. As each one pinged off her back, she yelped. Two houses down, she raised her hands in surrender.
“Okay, you win.” She huffed and bent over, bracing her hands on her knees. “I quit.”
He approached with a wide smile. He liked winning. When he came up to her, he patted her back. “It’s okay, Magpie. Not everyone can be an athlete.”
In a blink, she rose up and shoved a handful of snow down the front of his shirt. Damn, it was cold. It immediately melted against his warm skin and dripped a cool river that pooled at his waistband.
She took off running again. This time, her laughter echoed in her wake. It was such a good sound to hear that he stood for a moment and just absorbed it, allowed it to captivate his entire being.
But her taunt pulled him out of his bubble of enjoyment.
He knew he was, but he’d never admit it to her. He ran after her again, quickly gaining ground. Her harsh “Oh, fuck” whooshed out just before he tackled her in the snow. He grabbed a handful of snow and rubbed it on her face. She yelped and squealed.
Shane kept her pinned to the ground but gave her a minute to catch her breath. She blinked rapidly, knocking snowflakes from her lids and lashes. Instead of being pissed, she smiled up at him. “Okay, you win.”
