“We are two halves of the same rotten apple.”
Deep in the Amazonian jungle, there is a mansion with a rose garden and a hen house where juicy tomatoes are the perfect shade of red, and marble countertops glisten.
Inside, where even the shadows don’t reach, something is rotting, and the perfect facade can only hold the stench for so long. 
Domenico promised his husband that he would keep him safe, keep him away from the bloodshed and the brutal world of cartel violence. But when a guest arrives to help retrieve a stolen transport of guns, something sinister sneaks into his home, something more dangerous than his enemies. Or has it been there all along, and he just hasn’t noticed?
Seth’s life is what others dream of. Endless leisure time filled with cocktails, a kitchen stocked with anything he wishes for, and a private pool in the sunshine. What’s missing is the man he shares it with, the man he fell in love with. If being cut off from the mafia business was what he wanted, then why is it so painfully lonely in paradise?
Desperate to be the supportive husband Domenico needs, Seth buries his rage, his violent urges, and the anger that simmers inside of him. But he can only hide in plain sight for so long, and when a guest invites him to play with fire, one misstep, one wrong move, could burn their safe haven to the ground.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS: Themes: mafia, cartel, assassin, organized crime, family ties, domestic violence, inequality, betrayal, revenge
Genre: Dark, twisted M/M romance/crime thriller
Length: ~92,000 words (Book 7 in the series)
WARNING:  Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists as well as scorching hot, explicit love scenes. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

 “Sometimes I think it’s impossible for two people to be so closely connected.Maybe we’ve met in a different life.”

Seven books in and this series just get better and better and how many series can you say that about? After years of reading M/M romance books, Dom and Seth are still my favorite couple. In this book, K.A. Merikan once again grabs your attention and don’t let go, in what is my favorite book in the series so far…This one is brutal in terms of Dom and Seth’s relationship…

Seth seems to have a perfect life. Lazy days spent with their daughter Angelica, tending to his beloved chickens and hours spent in his beautiful kitchen creating wonderful food for his family. And, really, whatever he wants he eventually gets from Dom. But resentment is starting to creep up on him. Is he really happy being Dom’s Trophy husband?…he might have the T-shirt but is it enough?

For his part, Dom is determined to keep the ugliness out of Seth’s life as far as his work is concerned. After all, Seth made it very clear he wants no part in any violence but is Dom’s over protectiveness about to backfire in the worst way when a new face arrives at their home turning their world into chaos…No matter how strong their love is will it be enough this time?

As usual, these Authors don’t hold back…they are never afraid to go there…and there are some shocking moments here but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Reading a new chapter in Dom and Seth’s life always, without fail, makes me happy because along with the violence and self-destruction it’s a powerful love story, definitely not always pretty but completely compelling…

I highly recommend this series! 💓
