Grim. Assassin. Leather-clad sex god. Has the most unusual taste in men.
Misha. Mutilated. Afraid. Will never trust again.

Grim is a bloodthirsty killer, and he owns it. Gay in a world of outlaw bikers, he firmly stands his ground if anyone dares to cross him. He takes pleasure in showing homophobes their place and fucking his way through a life of carnage.

But there is a part of him always aching for something he cannot get. When by chance he saves the most perfect guy he’s ever met, he is not about to let him go. Even if it means he needs tosmother his broken bird.

When a masked, bloodstained man rescues Misha from captivity, he doesn’t know if he should thank the menacing stranger or stab him and run. Grim is not the kind of man who takes no for an answer, and Misha might now be in more danger than when he was trapped as a sex slave.

Misha cannot deny though that Grim is as alluring as he is frightening, and once Misha realizes what power his body holds over Grim, he understands that taming the beast of a man could be within his reach.

But any possibility of a future together is like a house of cards when Zero, the sadistic crime lord who destroyed Misha’s life, sets out to get him back.

Will the ruthless biker assassin at Misha’s side be enough to conquer the monsters from his past?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.

They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.

Inspiration never failed them so far, but they are ready to hunt down the exotic and unique. Kat and Agnes are pursuing their dream of becoming full fledged virtual nomads. Having gotten rid of their apartment and with most of their belongings put in storage, they are choosing their own path in life, ready to experience all the world has to offer while working on their books.

Review: Guns n’ Boys (Guns n’ Boys #1.1) by K. A. Merikan #Erotica #MM

TITLE: Guns n’ Boys Guns n' Boys: Book 1, Part 1 (Guns n' Boys, #1.1)

SERIES:  Guns n’ Boys #1.1

AUTHOR:  K. A. Merikan

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 323 Pages

BLURB:

— 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.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

Themes: Enemies to lovers, mafia, homophobia, assassin, organized crime

Genre: Dark, twisted erotic romance / crime thriller

Erotic content: Explicit gay sex, coercion

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.

REVIEW:

This book started out when Seth, the son of a Sicilian mafia don, is kidnapped, held prisoner and mutilated. When he’s rescued by the handsome Dominico, he instantly falls under the beautiful Sicilian’s spell. Seth leaves his boyfriend in the States and follows Dominico to meet Seth’s father, but on the way, things between the two become heated. When Seth discovers his father has named him to be his successor, Seth doesn’t know what to do. However, with Dominico by his side, he might just make it.

This book threw me for a loop. I was intrigued with how the story began. Then I was reading with a crinkled nose, but by the end I liked it again. My main objection was with Seth. I was interested in Seth up until the point when he came into contact with Dominico. At that point, Seth, the self-proclaimed top, became the biggest baby ever. He seemed like the furthest thing possible from what I’d imagine for a future mafia don. I was sure he was going to annoy the crap out of me for the entire book, but instead, his sexual encounters with Dominico just got better and better. Seth turned out to be the hottest reluctant virgin bottom I could imagine. No matter how much he protested, he couldn’t deny how much he loved it. Then he was all sulky about liking it afterword. In addition to finding it hot, I also found a bit of humor to it as well. This book was part 1 of 3, so I expected a cliffhanger. Even though the first part of the book was mostly sex and banter between the two, I was entertained by Dominco’s gradual breakdown of Seth which turned into something sweet by the end. I look forward to seeing how their relationship progresses in the next parts of this book.

RATING:  I liked it!

Spotlight: Stygian by Santino Hassell #Paranormal #MMRomance

TITLE:     StygianStygian

AUTHOR:     Santino Hassell

PUBLISHER:     Dreamspinner Press

LENGTH:     217 Pages

BLURB:

Jeremy has been isolated and adrift since the death of his brother. Most people just see him as the skinny emo kid who wears eyeliner and plays drums. No one gets him. Nobody tries. He thought the indie rock band Stygian would become his anchor, but—lost in their own problems—they’re far from the family he sought.

Still, hoping to get close to Kennedy, the band’s enigmatic guitarist, he follows Stygian to northern Louisiana for a summer retreat. They had planned to spend six weeks focusing on new music, but things go awry as soon as they arrive at the long-deserted Caroway mansion. Tempers flare, sexual tension boils over into frustration, and Jeremy turns away from the band to find a friend in his eerily beautiful landlord Hunter Caroway.

Kennedy suspects there’s something off about the creepy mansion and its mysterious owners, but Jeremy thinks he’s finally found somewhere he fits. It isn’t until Kennedy forces the Caroways’ secrets into the light that Jeremy realizes belonging sometimes comes with a price.

RATING: I loved it!
