                              “All you need to know is that you’re mine.”

Seth would follow Domenico to the depths of hell. He promised to always be at Domenico’s side. But hell becomes all too real when they infiltrate the world of Toro – a notoriously security-obsessed arms dealer, who has eyes and ears everywhere.

Seth becomes unable to steal even a moment of intimacy with Domenico, and the tension grinds them down each day. Beyond the deceptive paradise of Toro’s villa, violence is an everyday occurrence, and the swimming pool could just as well be filled with blood. To survive, Seth has to become the man Domenico needs him to be, but in the process, he might lose who he truly is.

With Seth trained up, and Mark as backup, victory is so close Domenico can taste it. They just need to prove themselves to Toro as valuable assets. With each day though, Seth seems to be drifting away from Domenico, hidden behind a mask of cruelty and indifference. It is exactly what Domenico asked of him, so why is it so difficult to see Seth become his mirror image?

Without doubt the best one of the Series, no one else writes Dark Romance of this quality like Kat and Agnes Merikan.

It’s the most amazing of on-going Series, it has the most amazing character’s, the most amazinness of a storyline AND the ultimate amazinglysexysexness. Yep, lots of amazingness going on here.

              “I don’t even know who I am anymore”

              “All you need to know is that you’re mine”

 And those two simple sentences from the blurb, sums up this totally addictive storyline so very well.

But it’s not just Seth that’s changed, Domenico has too. He has always tried to encourage Seth to be more like him, be stronger and to be tougher.  But he’s now realising that in making him do so, he’s losing the fundamental essence of who Seth really is.  The essence that Dom fell in love with.  The exclusive characteristic essence that only Seth could own and the one that Dom would lay down his life for.  Does he really want Seth to change who he is?

If we think back to Book 1, we can remember how Seth was in those days – forgetting to put on the safety of his gun, the Top that realised he loved being a Bottom in the safety of Dom’s arms and the flirt that thought lemon cupcakes with an icing topping, could solve all problems. Do we want Seth to change?

Like Dom, I fell in love with Seth too. Unlike Seth though, I didn’t fall in love with the arrogant Domenico.  That came when I joined them on their journey to finding who the real Mr. Tropico is?

And their journey has now taken them to Columbia, together with Mark and Miguel and what an intriguing character he is! I seriously need his full background storyline and is his mentoring of Mark purely that or something deeper?  Hmmmm…..

And talking of Mark, WTF!!!!!!   didn’t see that one coming, but he came good for his Family and that’s what Dom has been trying to instil in him – it’s all about family, The Vincitore Family.  While we are talking about family, I might as well mention the evil, pregnant Dana.

But she came through for Dom, now THAT did surprised me. What’s her real agenda?  I used to think that she was in love with Dom, now I’m not so sure unless she intends to bump off Seth?  You never know how these two authors are going to go, what to shock you with next, but I think it’s going to be real shock worthy.

We also get introduced to Nero. What an enigma he is!  And to make matters worse, I think he has designs or should that be, desires? on Seth!

Through Dom’s manipulations and outright killing, he has now secured a home for his Family and ready to take on Raul Moreno to get closer to Mr. Tropico, but without alerting the back at home Italians.  Will it all work out?

Don’t forget to read the Post-credits scene at the end, another surprise I didn’t see coming!

 5* #TeamDomandSeth stars from me.

REVIEW: “CHOKEHOLD” by K.A MERIKAN

5162qEPe50L

TITLE: Chokehold
AUTHOR: K.A. Merikan
PUBLISHER: Acerbi & Villani ltd.
GENRE: Dark Erotic Romance
SERIES: Guns n’Boys, book 5
E-BOOK: Yes
PRICE: $ 4.99 e-book on Amazon

RELEASE DATE: 24th August 2016

 

BLURB: This book is part of a series about a single couple, which needs to be read in order.

— The ugliest truths blossom into the prettiest lies. —

A year into the relationship with Domenico, Seth still wants him as desperately as ever. Nothing is better than being intoxicated with lust for his deadly man and feeling his steady hands all over.
No matter the misunderstandings, the fights… The crash. The burn.
Crossing the Mexican border has been a goal for Seth and Domenico for a few months, but the trip couldn’t have ended in more of a disaster. While Domenico is stuck at home, for Seth each passing day becomes more difficult. Desperate to keep his family afloat, he accepts a job offer from Los Sepultureros. The Gravediggers.
When Domenico’s need for control starts eroding their trust, Seth is sure their love can conquer all. But when Domenico rips open the wound left after the violence at the beginning of their relationship, it gushes blood all over their cozy lies and this time, there may be no way to seal it.

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘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.

 

lorraine Steel and Fire meeting together in a blaze of lust and love.
I am a Dom and Seth addict.  Welcome to their world.

My favourite writing duo delivered again today – another 5* winner.

All the facets in this diamond of a couple, were exposed, things that have been swept under the table, by both Seth and Dom, come crashing to the surface and it wasn’t taking any prisoners!

Yes, we were given what we would normally expect – blood spilling violence, vendetta’s, old scores still to be settled, very sizzling sexy bits, but we were also given the unexpected – Dom and Seth’s relationship and the cracks within it……..

Both have to open themselves to each other and to Mark as well, it’s the only way to cement those cracks back together to make them whole again –

          “We’ll make it work.  And not because it’s convenient for me or comfortable.

            Even when it hurts, I’d rather become charred than not burn for you”

I always knew deep down that one day, Dom would pay the price of Seth’s violation.  That day, is this book and how they deal with it to take their relationship forward.  There was never any doubt that they loved each other (look at what they have been through!) but is love enough?  The author(s) did an amazing job in tackling a very sensitive issue heads-on.  Seeing my boys opening their hearts, being totally honest and truthful with each other, pulled at my heart strings like no other.  Bravo author(s), I salute you.

And yes, they finally get to Mexico.  The action and a few surprises held me riveted.

Because of so much happening in this and previous books, I forgot so many things – Seth’s ambition to run a food Blog and Dom’s own personal interpretation of the Roman Catholic religion.  (When he made an offer, in true Mafia style, to a priest, it truly was an offer he couldn’t refuse!).  Seth’s acceptance of how much his life had changed, breaking people’s arms and shooting them, now practically a everyday occurrence.  Their sexy role-playing where Seth loves and craves to be mastered by Dom but also where bad things from their past are finally to put to rest.  And then, if that’s not enough?  There’s Dana with some interesting news……

Yes, it’s going to get bloody in Brazil and I for one can’t wait to see the blood letting that Dom has lined up and mastered so well.

Domenico Acerbi is a force of nature and Seth is his fire and wind – the accelerator to ignite their passion.

I cannot stress enough the importance of starting with Book 1 and work your way through the series, it will be one of your best book decisions ever.

BLURB: After months of recovering from his injuries, Seth struggles with who he has become. Afloat in a reality he never planned, he tries to find the lost pieces of himself again. Find the purpose, motivation, and strength to get back into shape. He is sick and tired of being a burden for Domenico, who seems to have it all together. When Domenico’s jealousy pushes them into the spotlight of a biker gang with connections to their former mafia family, Seth decides to step up, and make his own decisions, no matter what risks they might entail.

Domenico Acerbi can’t trust anyone. Nightmares of Seth’s torture are still haunting his dreams, and if he and Seth are to leave the country quietly and disappear off the mafia’s radar, he needs to stay in charge and keep everyone under control. What he doesn’t need is Seth giving him attitude, keeping secrets, and distancing himself for no reason. And as if Domenico didn’t have enough on his plate already, Seth forces him to help some hooker. Being stuck in the swamp with a kid hunted by a bunch of bikers is not Domenico’s idea of laying low.

 

lorraineSome time ago, my friends @boymeetsboyreviews were horrified that I hadn’t read The Merikans! I immediately put that to rights and never looked back. Now, my reaction is exactly the same as theirs -­‐ What? You don’t know The Merikans! This writing duo needs to be read by anyone that loves romance, so do yourselves a big favour and check them out now!
And so finally my Boys are back! I have to say that my Merikan Idols delivered BIG TIME on this one, they didn’t skimp on anything, including the length of the book, it’s very long and talking of length and longness -­‐ is Dom getting sexier every book? or is that my own fantasy coming to life?
Dom and Seth are still trying to make it to Mexico but with Seth trying to recover from the horrendous torture he suffered, (and believing that his beloved Dom couldn’t possibly want him now that his body has been ravaged) their progress is slow. And Dom? Well, he’s as arrogant as ever (as if he could be anything else!) but…he holds himself totally responsible for Seth’s injuries and thinks that maybe he is losing Seth’s love… A drunken Seth decides to play “hero” much to Dom’s horror and the merry band of three (yes Dana is still with them but I’m really not sure about her?) suddenly becomes four! They save 16 year old Mark and“You-are-the-best-thing-and-the-worst-thing Seth immediately takes him under his wing but Dom is not happy, especially as Mark seems to do his hardest to keep Dom from having his wicked way with Seth. But Dom is Dom, his natural jealous behaviour and his magnificent rages, combined with some ingenious “role playing” soon has Seth exactly where Dom wants him!
The heat between these two, yet again, is combustible and both are very willing and very
able to light that match to set off the explosion!
I don’t do spoilers, but as there is so much going on and I want everyone to read this series, so – The Coffin Nails MC are back….with a tank! Yep, you read that right. A tank…. and it comes in rather useful.
Overall in summing up, an outstanding read. The Authors bringing in The Coffin Nails was an inspirational idea and worked so well. Mark’s character added substance to the storyline even though he took the limelight off Dom and Seth a little bit. My beloved Seth seems to “man up” with every book and really showed Dom that he onecould rely on him when things get “tricky”. As I said already, not sure about Dana, I think she has her own agenda but if it’s in Dom’s and Seth’s best interests? we will have to wait and see. Also, the two brothers in the MC? again, I get the feeling that something is not quite right there? Hmmmm…. But Dom is the man for me and always will be. I loved every word, so much happening but never OTT, the chemistry between Dom and Seth sizzling and getting better with every book. I can’t wait to read the next one!
No hesitation in awarding 5*
