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’m with you, nothing else matters. When nothing else matters, the world around me dissolves, leaving only you. And. Nothing. Else. Matters.”
“Life isn’t perfect baby, and it never will be. But a bad day with you will always be better than my best day at war.”
The Gun Runner is the first book in an exciting new series by Scott Hildreth and is told from dual points of view. The Gun Runner follows the story of Michael and Terra. Michael is a former marine. He used to save the good guys and is now selling guns to the bad ones. He doesn’t take anything from anyone, especially Italian mob bosses….Terra has lived a life that most would be terrified of. She is untouchable, the daughter of a dangerous mobster. When she meets Michael, she can’t help but be drawn to him. He is everything that she’s always wanted. There’s only one problem….He can’t know who she is. Terra wants Michael to get to know who she is and fall in love with the real her and not get caught up in her identity…..
Now, if you know me, then you know that I don’t read a ton of books by male authors. That being said, Scott Hildreth is an author that has a ton of buzz surrounding him. When I heard about The Gun Runner, I just knew I had to read it. The synopsis sounded right up my alley, so I gave it a try. And let me tell you, I am so glad that I did.
Told from dual points of view, The Gun Runner is fast paced, sexy, exciting and filled with danger. This story pulls you in from the very first page and captivates you the entire time. This is a book that you can easily devour in one sitting. It will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see how things will play out.
I loved Michael and Terra from the moment I met them. Michael was tough and didn’t take crap from anyone. I loved the way that he was with Terra and appreciated how he wanted to make sure what they had was worth investing time in before he just jumped into bed with her. Terra was just plain awesome. She was badass and wasn’t afraid of anything. She is the type of woman that will go after what she wants. Put her together with Michael and those two are an explosive combination. One, that I could not get enough of.
The Gun Runner was an exciting and entertaining read. It’s well written and filled with action, suspense, secrets, lies and lots of sexy good times. This book doesn’t really end with a cliffy, but it definitely ends in a way that will leave you begging for more and dying to know what will happen next. This is my first book by this author and I for one can not wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve next for Michael and Terra.
