Guns n’ Boys needs to be read in order. This is the second part of book one.
— Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —
The Family is always right.
The Family doesn’t forget.
The Family pays for blood in blood.
Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.
Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins.
Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.
If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself–with the most intoxicating man he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.
This book wow! The relationship between Seth and Domenico it was Angst, Drama plus sprinkle that with a whole lot of violence. That is one of the reasons I am such a big fan of K.A. Merikan’s books. They are gritty, keep you on the each of your seat and leave you shocked about what you just read. Now I am a big fan of Seth’s character he is sweet and a little naïve. Then you get Domenico he was raw, violent to a point where it bugged me a little with how violent he was with Seth at times. I love them as a couple with everything they have to do to be together and they way Domenico is so protective of Seth. This book will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. It has the perfect amount of angst/ drama and kept me up all night reading. I would definitely recommend this book!
Oh god, were do I start. This book was simply amazing. It had everything under the sun in it: jealousy, violence, and suspense. My first complaint on book 1 was Seth was a wimp and had very little confidence. In this book we really see Seth step up to the plate in trying to become the new Don, even though he has no desire to be the next Don. I really became Seth’s strongest supporter after reading book 2.
In this book we see how much Dom and Seth relationship become stronger. I really love reading about the strength of love and how it becomes the substance of these men. Can’t wait to begin reading the next installment to see where the authors go next.
