Title: Guns n’ Boys: Homicidal Instinct (Guns n’ Boys #3)
Author: K.A. Merikan
Genre: Dark MM Romance
Rating: 4.5 Stars!
Continuing without interruption in the timeline, Domenico Acerbi and Seth Villani are on the run from their mafia family. Complicating their situation is the fact that Dom is injured and has amnesia. Since he’s always been the trainer and protector, Seth must now assume that role. As they navigate from New York to their previously planned destination, missteps are made putting them closer to harm. Learning who to trust becomes tricky and relying upon blind instinct is all Domenico knows at this point.
“I can see what the old me saw in you. Even if you can be a lying, chaotic prick.”
Domenico’s memory loss certainly provides for an interesting dynamic on multiple levels because it not only forces Seth to take the reins but their personal relationship is tested. With Dom being such a predatory and dominant man, it’s only natural for him to exercise what he innately knows despite not having any memory. For Seth, it’s also reactionary but feeling the loss of their past begins to cause Seth’s insecurities levels to rise, as all he wants is for Dom to know what they uniquely share.
“You missed this, huh?” “I like your force,” Seth admitted and swallowed hard, his Adam’s apple bobbing with each big breath.”
When Dom first awakened from his injuries, I was shocked to read about his amnesia but appreciated how Dom battled with nature versus nurture, and interestingly, it was a relief to know Dom was still very much himself though he may have revealed some sweet secrets to Seth that he may want to retract. Lol. While wholeheartedly loving Dom’s character, Seth is still in the process of finding a balance in the relationship dynamics but Dom is more than willing to comfort Seth.
“Domenico pulled Seth’s face down so their foreheads met. “And I need to sink into your beautiful warm hole. I will fuck you. First soft, then hard, and then I’ll come inside you.”
With Dom and Seth, there always seems to be a sense of foreboding whether they are enjoying a tender moment, quarreling over jealousies or dodging gun fire. Due to breached loyalties and a family insurrection, danger presents itself at all times in this tense and action packed installment paralleled with layers of character dimension and some unexpected twists. While it appears Dom and Seth may have earned their freedom, certain factions remain and it’s doubtful they will relinquish their pursuit.
What I’ve come to enjoy with K.A. Merikan is just how effectively they can lure you into the lives of their characters, as the dark humor, realistic dialogue, action and scorching hot kinky times are addictive. For those who enjoy MM, I highly recommend this series! And, it is too much to ask for one bi moment? Just a quickie? [inserts self] Haha!
