Gun Moll #1
Release: May 23, 2016
Length: 358 pages

James “Mac” Maccari’s career in the mafia is at a standstill. As the best solider in his Capo’s crew, all he wants is to be noticed enough to get Made in the Pivetti Crime Family. But instead, his Capo’s interests seem more focused on keeping his solider hidden from the boss, and every other Made man he can. Seemingly stuck right where he is with no chance of going up, Mac doesn’t know what will finally get him the attention he needs to earn his button.

Until she shows up and all eyes are on them …

Melina Morgan survives—that’s just what she does. She’s never been able to depend on anyone but herself to keep her safe and get things done. When a chance encounter puts her in a bad situation with the cops and the mafia, Melina has no choice but to put her faith in the hands of a man that not only infuriates her with his cocky arrogance, but catches her interest, too. Playing pretend in a fake relationship with Mac doesn’t seem all that terrible, until pretend turns real and bullets start to fly.

A man is nothing without his woman …

When the attention on Mac and Melina turns from bad to worse, and someone in the Pivetti Crime Family decides the couple needs to go, they know they’re fighting an uphill battle alone. But making it to the end alive means Mac could get what he’s always wanted, and Melina might find what she didn’t even know she needed.

Together, they’ll make waves the mafia has no choice but to notice …

My Review

Bethany-Kris has written some of the best mafia romance books I've ever read. This book, written with Erin Ashley Tanner, is one of her best yet!! I could tell right from the start that this book would be the start of an incredible series.

Gun Moll is primarily about James "Mac" Maccari, a soldier of the Pivetti Crime Family. He's overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. He meets Melina, an escort that doesn't have sex for money. Together, they get Mac noticed (through some unorthodox means) by the Boss, find a saboteur, shoot some guns, evade the police, have tons of scorchingly hot sex (so fcking hot), and fall in love. Obviously there's a lot more to this story, but you've got to read it to find out.

Although Melina was likable for the most part, my fave character was Mac. He was so fcking beautiful, inside and out. He was honest, honorable, respectful, hardworking, ambitious, considerate, and so freaking loving. The world really needs more men like Mac. No Joke!!

I docked .5 of a star because Melina's attitude got on my fcking nerves sometimes. She needed to slow her damn roll. Overall, this was an amazing story (mostly due to Mac, of course) and with that ending, I cannot wait to dive into Gangster Moll!!
