In Bloodbath, book six of the Guns n’ Boys series, Domenico Acerbi and Seth Villani begin their journey into the Columbian jungle intent on infiltrating the world of an arms dealer. Making such a connection is another step closer to their end game yet danger surrounds them at all times. Operating under aliases, Dom, Seth and Mark are challenged in new ways forcing Seth into a violent path and leaving Dom to wonder if Seth will be forever changed.
“This was his life, and it was time to face the bloody truth about it. Seth nodded and stroked Domenico’s hand. “Anything for you,” he said in Italian.”
When it appears that Domenico and Seth are finally accepted into the fold, another round of tests prove to be their downfall causing a bloody path of destruction in its wake. In regrouping and relying upon a vital ally, Domenico uses his acute senses to reign terror and to stake his claim in hopes of securing their future.
“His confidence was like fuel to the fire in Seth’s chest. “No one’s stopping me from this. I am going to have you.”
From the first page, the pace is swift with adrenaline spiked twists and compromising situations continually testing Domenico and Seth. While Dom thrives in violence, Seth is the opposite and Dom doesn’t want to see the innocence in Seth permanently shattered. In addition to Seth’s trials, Mark experiences a coming of age moment that further strengthens the connection he shares with Dom and Seth.
In this book, secondary characters continue to offer more dimension to the ongoing plot line. Miguel is an effective yet mysterious addition and the friendship he shares with Mark is comical at times due to Mark’s teenage ways. Dana certainly surprised me in this one, even though I still don’t fully trust her, she proved her worth. A most entertaining surprise is the introduction of Nero (his assets included) and I wonder how his role will continue to unfold. With Domenico and Seth, their bond proves to be strong enough to endure the bloodshed and scars.
As expected, the writing duo of K.A. Merikan pens an erotic read with compelling characters and a stimulating plot. This series would appeal to those seeking a romance embedded in an action-packed mafia setting. I highly recommend!
