Tripp

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.

Terra 

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.

Born In San Diego California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas home. Residing in Kansas with his wife, Jessica, and six children, he somehow finds twelve hours a day to work on his writing. A hybrid author who has published more than two-dozen romance and erotica novels, his three book series through Harlequin is due to start release with the first book in summer 2016.
Scott has spent his entire life pushing boundaries, and his writing is no exception. Addicted to riding his Harley-Davidson, tattoos, and drinking coffee, he can generally be found in a tattoo shop, on his Harley, or in a local coffee house when not writing.
Loyal to the fans and faithful followers who allowed him to make writing a full-time career, Scott communicates with his followers on Facebook almost daily. He encourages his readers to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

 

The Gun Runner
Scott Hildreth

This is a smoking hot bad boy mafia romance that I really enjoyed reading! Tripp was a marine for ten years and is now a civilian with the skillset provided by the military and a new career that combines the best of both worlds. He likes to have control over everything around him and once he’s set his sights on something, he doesn’t allow anything to get in his way. Terra is a woman who is used to danger and has grown up living in a family where it’s second nature. She and Tripp cross paths in a pretty interesting and swoon worthy way and from the minute Tripp graces the pages of this book I was head over heels in love! These two immediately feel a pull towards each other that they don’t even try to resist and things take off from there. There’s some pretty big secrets standing in the way of their happiness however and when they inevitably come to the surface they may very well destroy everything. There was an intense sense of foreboding while reading this since I was aware of these pretty big secrets the entire time and anxiously waiting for the bombs to go off every time I turned the page. It almost gave me a clash of conflicting feelings because there was a part of me that wanted to read faster so I could finally get to the part where everything came to light and the other part of me wanted to read ever so slowly so I could savor things while they were good between these two. I couldn’t believe the way it ended and was shocked that things were left the way they were! All I have to say is that the next book had better come out pretty quickly since I must know what’s going to happen next! I highly recommend reading this to anyone and look forward to much more from this author in the future.
