The first book in a seductive new series from Scott Hildreth, the #1 Amazon bestselling author of BRAWLER and HARD CORPS.
Once, I took down terrorists on the front lines as a marine.
Now I’m in the business of bad.
I’ve sold guns to people others might not approve of.
I’ve eliminated the criminals, the lowlifes and the thugs who’ve tread on my turf.
And I looked the Sicilian Mafia boss in the eye and told him to f*** off.
No one tells me no, unless it’s their last word.
I didn’t just act the part of bad—I lived it. Then she stumbled into my life.
I tried to stay away from her. Tried focusing on moving my merchandise. But one smile from Terra was like a shot to the heart.
She’s mine now. And no one threatens what’s mine.
I’ve seen a lot of terrible things in my life.
I grew up around lies and deception, and I ran away from all of them.
Until I met him.
I knew he was corrupt. I knew he was dangerous.
I should have stayed away, but my attraction to him, my needfor him, overrode my logic.
Now I love him.
If he finds out who I am, we’re done and I’ll be nothing.
I never wanted to be the Mafia princess they tried to make me, but mia familia had other plans. And what mia familia wants…it gets.
Only Michael Tripp can save me.
Tripp and Terra’s story continues in Book Two of Mafia Made, The Game Changer.
When I saw this one was up for graps on NetGalley I was super excited by the blurb and was really looking forward to reading this book. I mean who doesn’t like firstly the cover and secondly strong men with guns and an action packed plot, right? So after reading the first few chapters I can say that I really enjoyed the story but then came the freaking questions. I drove me nuts, I mean, I get it, if it’s only a few times and on various scenes but to have a person you are talking to reply to you every single time with What happened? No, did that really happen? He did what? He was what? What, what, what? I FREAKING GET IT, OK!!! You tell me once and I’m totally going to understand you. I’m not brain dead or something. And that continued to happen through the whole story. So that was definitely a bummer for me and I admit, there were times where I wanted to give up and just stop reading.
In the end I guess I can also blame my high expectations for the story, since I was really happy to be reading this book. But oh well, it’s still a three star read, since not all was that bad.
I liked Cap and Michelle, they were my favourite characters. Yes, I know I’m horrible for not liking the main characters more but what can I say. I loved how Cap has this no bullshit personality and how Michelle just knows what she want and is one super cool chick that doesn’t easily freak out. If there is going to be a book about those two, I’m definitely reading it!
Now Terra and Michael were a mess but a beautiful one. Their relationship is now a ‘normal’ one, since their past and true identity still remains a lie, at least on Terra’s side and one that all comes to light, there is going to be a big bum! But for the most part, I find their journey to finding each other real sweet. There are ups and downs but in the end they manage to overcome that and also the epilogue and their new pet, just soooo cute. That added to their story for sure.
All in all, I would say that I liked this story but it could also be better, specially the writing style (question and all that). Also I’m not sure I’m going to be reaging the sequel but who knows, maybe I will, maybe won’t. So, if you feel like you like the blurb, then go for it. Read the story and who knows, it might just as well pleasantly surprise you.
