Guns n' Boys: Book 1, Part 1 by K.A. Merikan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A book where the character looses an appendage in the first chapter is my kind of book! It seems to be the ultimate set up for what is to come in this story line....
We have our boy Seth, son of the Don, who is off in America doing his thing. Going to college, living with his secret boyfriend ((heaven forbid the family find out)) and cooking like his mama taught him. Out of nowhere he is kidnapped and has no idea who these men are or why he is being taken, as he has no part in "the family"
In steps rescuer, Domenico, to get Seth out. Seems a rival family has taken Seth in exchange for what they want.... but the mystery lies within who set the order...
Upon arrival in Sicily, The Don decides to name his 2nd born, Seth, heir to "the throne". This doesn't please ANYBODY, not even Seth, & especially not his brother, Vincente. His father knows Seth has a lot to learn and decides the best to train him would be his #1 ass-as-in, Dom. They are sent to Berlin immediately to start their training.
The chemistry between these 2 is electric, and not exactly in a good way. Domenico seems to have anger issues, as their past would leave you to believe. Not with life in general, but with Seth specifically. I felt Dom was a bit "rapey" and overbearing, and I think that had a LOT to do with his anger and he feels he is "punishing" Seth for what he believes Seth to be.
But as the story progressed and the character stories are built, he really started growing on me. He starts to understand that Seth really is a sweet and oblivious guy, who really doesn't want to have anything to do with being The Don or leading the family, and that's when things start to really change.
Seth is a big puppy dog and I feel so bad for the position is put in. I have so many questions as to why his father chose him and what he's playing at. I think it's one big test between the 3 boys. I'm really excited to see how this will play out. I'm really rooting for Seth and Dom.

This book is intense.
I was wondering how it would all play out. Not that I got all the answers as there are loose ends.
Dom and Seth have really grown on me and Dom is the sweetest in the most weirdest, alpha way. He is so supportive during Seth's "arranged marriage" and so sweet as to exchange signets with him... and don't get me started on the dance in the barn scene. *melts*
I hate that Seth's uncle treated Dom the way he did when he was younger, but it also made Dom the man he is now. I also found it funny when he told Dom to have fun on "his" honeymoon. Dom and Seth still have a lot to learn about each other and they get their chance while being able to be alone together in New York.
Seth is still struggling with this new side that Dom brings out in him.
While they're there, they get a surprise visit from Seth's older brother, Vincente. While at a strip club, Dom learns a bit of a secret as to whom they thing set the hit out on Seth's kidnapping. Could it be sibling rivalry? Or something more??
Dom is faced with a very hard decision. Serve The Don or protect the love of his life. Things are not as they appear and they will have the ultimate battles for their lives and will have to look towards an old severed relationship with Seth's ex to help get them through.
This book was riveting and it was everything.

Blown the fuck away. This is the best one yet.
The authors took it there, I was biting my finger nails towards the end.
Gritty, raw, and just as fucking amazing. I bloody love these guys... a lot!
Not for the weak at heart (or stomach).
The book starts where 1.2 left off. They're holed up in Seth's ex's apartment while Dom is recovering after a shoot out with the rival family that kidnapped Seth in book 1. Unfortunately when Dom wakes up, he is not "quite himself" and Seth must take over this strange mission. Too bad Dom never told him much, only that they were going to head towards Mexico.
Now that Dom can't quite remember anything, Dom must re-learn about Seth and it i is killing Seth that Dom can't remember what they had. Is it a new beginning, without their rough start? or will it be an end to their relationship? The whirlwind of events that happen when they travel are both funny and traumatic.
I think my favorite part was the "Gay Italian Chicken Farmer" scene and seth "not wanting to be a meme" *chuckles*
When Dom learns the truth about his and Seth's past, he wonders to himself how someone like Seth could have liked someone like him, when he realizes the old him treated Seth like crap. This really changes the dynamic in their relationship and takes it a step further in the right direction. Dom becomes this sweet, caring, but still protective boyfriend, and it is the most epic thing to witness. I really just love these guys.
In my first review, I mention the awesomeness in chapter one about loosing an appendage. Welllllll... it gets even more gruesome! This series is just... I can't even tell you enough about it, you really just need to read all of this awesome.
