“Told in lyric yet economical prose, Falling for Johnny is the story of the unlikely friendship between Johnny, a vicious gangster, and Riley, an abandoned young woman whose life has been thrown into chaos by her mother’s materialism and her father’s prideful refusal to pay mob patronage. As Johnny and Riley's lives become increasingly entwined, they begin to draw out each other’s best and worst qualities, leaving the reader to wonder if either of them can truly be saved.” — STERLING WATSON author of Fighting in the Shade, Sweet Dream Baby, and Blind Tongues
